Eyeshadow sticks that are resistant to water, sweat, and humidity, are the perfect summer makeup product. Use them as a liner, smudged out as a shadow, or as a base for your eyeshadows for budge proof, long lasting wear.
SEPHORA COLLECTION Colorful Shadow & Liner ($14 US/$18 CAD) Let it Snow (matte white). This is a wonderful shade for using as a base to make soft or pastel summer shades look more vibrant on the eyes. If you like to go full on white on your lower waterline it works great there as well. It is really creamy and opaquely pigmented.
The Marc Jacobs Beauty Twinkle Pop Eye Sticks ($28 US/$35 CAD) in Frannie (snow iridescent shimmer) and Honey Bunny (ballet pink shimmer) may not be new but they are new to me for summer. These are gorgeous glistening shades that look almost wet. So stunning sheered out on the lid or worn in the inner corner of the eyes. The cooling sensation these shadow sticks give is especially appreciated on a hot summer day.
MAKE UP FOR EVER released 5 new shades of Aqua Matic ($22 US/$25 CAD) that will be added to the range permanently. ME-80 Metallic Pink is a dark burgundy toned pink with a softly metallic finish. I love using this one as a liner. M-11 Matte Black is the perfect base for a smoky eye that will last through your sweatiest hot night out. Also introduced were D-21 Diamond Light Turquoise, ME-32 Metallic Golden Khaki, and D-70 Diamond Peach. The Aqua Matic eyeshadow sticks are waterproof and can be used as shadows or liners.
