I have a few Eyeshadow Crayons in my collection and I really like using them, I have reviewed the Rimmel Shadow Stick here and I also love the elf ones and the double ended Avon ones too. This one from Avon is quite similar to the Rimmel ones but has less shimmer.
Avon is a brand that I use on a regular basis, I own quite a few of their products and love getting the Avon Catalogue through the door, I don’t think there is a month where I don’t order something (don’t tell my husband). I took a gamble on this Color Trend Eyeshadow Pencil, as it’s from their younger range (not that I am old), but I haven’t tried anything from it before. Knowing I was already a fan of other brands shadow pencils I thought it might be nice to try.
The formula is quite creamy for a shadow stick and I found this great when blending it out, it glides on my eyelids smoothly but if you have oily lids you might want to pop a little primer on first – only because I think this might just slip right off if worn alone.
I wear this all over my lid and blend it out with a brush, just to make the edges a little softer. I have worn eyeshadow over the top and that looked good too, my eyeshadow was bold and stayed in place all day. I like that these shadow sticks can be worn alone or teamed up with shadow for a bolder more long wearing eye look. The colour I bought was in Lioness and it’s a deep bronze with a tiny hint of shimmer, but you really can’t notice the shimmer unless your up close.
I seem to be all about the effortless makeup look these past few months, anything that saves me time when getting ready is a winner with me and these Jumbo Eyeshadow sticks are just that. I think this Lioness shade will make a pretty Autumn / Winter colour. Looking through my collection I seem to have built up quite a few bronze coloured products, I can’t seem to resist a them. I’m such a hoarder.
These Colortrend Eye Pencils come in 3 shades Lioness, Elephant Grey and Roaring Blue all are £4 from Avon
