I’ve mentioned before how my eyelids are like kryptonite for eyeshadow. When I tried Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place ShadowSticks, I was eager to see if this product would really last.
The good news is that yes, the product really is long lasting. To effectively gauge it’s lasting powder, I shared the product with a co-worker and we both put it to the test. We had good results, we both admired how smudge proof it seemed to be. Within minutes of swatching the eyeshadow sticks on our hands, we couldn’t get the color to budge. If that’s how it performed on my hand, I was eager to try it on my eyes! The first time around, the product didn’t last as long on my lids but when I added a little primer and tried it again, I had color well into the afternoon. As for my co-worker, she didn’t experience any creasing all. It’s was my kryptonite lids, I tell you. While it is smudge resistant after it dries, it does go on easily and blend well before drying. While I ordinarily love shimmer, I would love to see some new matte shades available in this product.
