the longer i’ve been in this beauty world, surrounded by blogs and channels and ever so enabling ladies i became more and more interested in the high end beauty bits and liked treating myself to something not as budget friendly. i’m still a drugstore girl at heart but i love me some more expensive beauty bits every now and then and i’m happy to afford them on my own. one thing i like a lot are lazy products, some that will make a difference when i don’t have time or don’t feel like spending time on my make up even though i find it to be very therapeutic and its my morning zen moment. anyways, i love eye shadow sticks as they are beautiful as bases or washes of color in the lid and the queen of eyeshadow sticks are the by terry ombré black stars. very much raved about and all so loved and i certainly wanted one for myself. there are plenty of colors and i wanted something that would stick out color wise, not something i already have.
after reading plenty of reviews, i feel in love with the shade misty rock when suzie from hello october featured it in one of her videos and i needed it in my life. its basically a bronzy purple with hints of silver and brown and it shimmers so beautifully and looks different in every light and on every skin tone. on me, the purple comes out really well and makes my brown eyes stand out. my make up collection is quite big but i don’t have anything like it. texture wise, its so smooth and goes on easily and very opaque and pigmented. it can be a slight hint of color but also just as pigmented as a powder eyeshadow. its so easy to blend and stays on forever. i still have the swatch on my hand after washing it through out the day. i own some more budget friendly eye shadow sticks and this one i just the most perfect one. it has the best lasting power and the color is just so unique. if you have the bugs to spend, try this one out. i can not recommend it enough.
