      The Revlon Colorstay Smoky Shadow Stick gets a rating of 6 out of 10 in my opinion. It is a new product from Revlon and I tend to purchase and love every Revlon product that I can get my hands on. It’s basically just eye shadow in stick form. Though I don’t really tend to go for products like this, it is very convenient to have eye shadows that can be applied without a brush, so I decided to try this out.

      The stick is dual sided and one end is kind of blunt and rounded while the other has a sharper tip. The colors on each end are different (so you get two colors in each stick). I purchased Flare and Smolder for about six dollars each.


      I have to be completely honest here when I say that “Smolder” is downright ugly. It’s got this bright orange shade with way too much shimmer in it. The deeper green/grey shade is wonderful for a smoky eye but the orange is absolutely terrible. “Flare” is just so-so in my opinion. The deeper purple is absolutely beautiful. The lavender would be a pretty shade if it actually showed up at all once applied the skin. This is what brings me to my next point. I can’t give this shadow stick great marks as far as pigmentation goes. What I found is that the darker shade of each stick showed up really well on my skin whereas the lighter shade on the stick was kind of pitiful in ...

      • how sheer it was. This was the case particularly with “Flare.” The lighter lavender shade was barely visible even when I went back and forth with the stick several times to try to deposit more color. No matter how much I swiped this on, I couldn’t get it to show up true to the color that it is on the stick itself. That was incredibly frustrating.

        I like that you do not have to sharpen these like typical eye pencils! It makes using them so much easier. All you do is twist them up (sort of like a mechanical pencil). I also like that these sticks have a really creamy feel to them. When I use them to “draw” on my eyes or apply color, they don’t tug

        at my skin.

        Another thing that I do not like is that the sharper end of the stick isn’t really fine enough to be used as a liner. I wanted to be able to use these either as eye shadow or liner, but because the stick is kind of chubby, it is impossible to use as a liner without getting a really messy result.

        While I would normally purchase a few of the other shadow sticks to see if I like the shades and the pigmentation, I was just not that impressed by the two that I have already tried and I can’t say that I recommend these (when Revlon offers so much prettier shades with better pigmentation in eye shadow palettes rather than in stick form).
