Confessions of a gold-bronze shadow stick hoarder



I’ve always been a fan of easy, everyday shadow shades – especially those of the champagne/bronze variety. You know the kind, colors you can sweep on in a few seconds, blend or smudge with a finger, and head out the door. Over the past year I have become absolutely obsessed with creamy golden-bronze shadow sticks because they 1. look beautiful on, and 2. are really efficient to use.


I have collected these products over the past several months, and I am very happy with all of my choices. Some high end, some drugstore, but they all perform incredibly well – no creasing throughout the day. To apply, I go right onto my lids with the stick, draw messily up to my crease, and then blend with my middle finger, a Sigma fluffy brush, or with a Mac 217.

Out of the above, my two most-worn are the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Sand Glow [for day], and the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon in Amber Haze [for night].

Are you eyeshadow stick-crazed as well? What are your favorites?

    Same obsession lately here, too! Although I find that I can take the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Moonlight (may have been LE last spring?? Not sure), for day to night depending how intense I do (or don’t) smudge it out. If you can, definitely check out that shade; I’m sure it would look stunning on you, also!

    I’m also guilty! It’s just such a perfect shade for blue/green eyes.

    I’ve recently been loving the By Terry Ombre Backstairs in Misty Rock and Bronze Moon!

    These are my jam also. You should try the MAC Paint Pots and NYX cream shadows (they come as pencils). They’re so easy to sweep on and look well put together. They’re part of my daily “look” along with liquid eyeliner, mascara, and some concealer.
