I'm going to get annoyances out of the way first. The lids have clearly been designed for jokes. Push them and off they ping. They have more commitment issues than Big Brother contestants, meaning they're 1000% going to fall off at some stage and dirty up your handbag/makeup drawers. Also, they're way too big to use as a liner on anywhere but the waterline.
Niggles aside, I think these shadow sticks are excellent.
The creamy, high-pigment formula glides onto the lids flawlessly. The shadows are easy to blend and once applied, they aint gonna budge! They're water resistant, sweat-proof (hello UAE life) and wear beautifully with little to no creasing throughout the day.
They also come in a range of finishes. I stuck with Shimmer but Sephora also offer Glitter and Matte finish options, with numerous colours to choose from. There are a couple of matte, beige creams that would work beautifully as an eye shadow base.
I've never been the hugest fan of cream eye shadows but these are up there with the best that I've ever tried and if you're looking for something to create a fuss-free, simple eye look, I highly recommend checking these out.
How do you feel about cream eye shadow? Have you tried any amazing cream shadow products or do you prefer to stick to powder?
