THE ALL-ROUNDER // BY TERRY OMBRE BLACKSTAR

When I first saw these eyeshadow sticks in a Tanya Burr video, I was obsessed. I was all set out to buy one - that was until I saw the price. Some people would think spending £29 on a crayon for your eyes is a bit insane; and so did I to be completely honest. I still really wanted one, so I decided to save up and buy it. At first I was thinking, am I really wise spending this much money on this? But as soon as I used it I knew it was worth the hefty price.

It really is an amazing product. It has amazing pigmentation and is easy to blend, but once it's set, it seriously does not budge. They have a range of 12 colours from bronzes to purples and they're all beautiful and really wearable. They work great as a base for eyeshadows but I often just end up wearing it on its own. The thing I love most about this product is that it is so easy to use, and great if you're in a rush. You can apply it straight from the tube and use a fluffy brush to blend out the edges and you're done! The colour I have is 13 Brown Perfection (below) and it can be used in so many different ways.


 I thought I would share some of my favourite ways to use this product. The first brush is great for packing it on the lid for a smokey eye. If I want something that isn't as harsh as black eyeliner I love using this angled brush to use it as eyeliner (really nice for blue eyes!) For everyday, using this fluffy brush to blend it in the crease looks really nice and keeps it looking polished.

I know these are probably out of a lot of people's budgets, so I found some great dupes that are a lot cheaper:

Thanks for reading!

  4. I've heard that Kiko makes great dupes (and I do own one of their shadow sticks) but always curious to compare. :-)
