Cream shadow sticks! Now, if you’re thinkin’, “Been there, done that (*snaps*),” and wondering why you should spend a hot second contemplating another cream shadow stick, well, GURL, when I walked up on Laura Mercier’s new $24 Caviar Stick Eye Colours at Sephora a couple weeks ago, I suddenly heard this Lionel Richie song…
Okay, not really, but I did achieve makeup nirvana…
I love these things so much that I just got a great idea! — you, me, all of us, mojitos (and Shirley Temples) and a HUGE karaoke bar.
And criss-cut fries.
We’ll all wear different shades of Laura’s Caviar Sticks on our eyes and take the stage by storm!
For the record, these sticks aren’t new, but Laura’s adding six spring shades to go with the 12 shades currently in her permanent collection (here are swatches).
I wish I knew why it took me so long to notice these, and now I’m kicking myself in the butt for that…
It’s not that we haven’t seen shadow sticks before. At one point in time, MAC had something similar, the Shadesticks, that are now discontinued, and Bobbi Brown recently released something very similar for spring.
So, shadow sticks, what are they, exactly? Generally, they’re cream eyeshadows that come in twist-up packaging.
You take one, draw directly on your skin, blend out the edges, and BAM! — you’re wearing eyeshadow.
Simple, and really, really easy.
