Well, there you go! Sorry it took a little longer than I was anticipating, but better late than never right!? Don’t forget to check out my youtube channel, The Beauty Breakdown, where I do more video reviews and talk about other beauty-related topics 🙂 Hope you’re all doing well!
I promised this to you guys last week (I think!) but I got so busy I didn’t have the chance to post about these! But now, here they are! The Memebox I’m Stick Shadow swatches and review! Right now they’re $5 on sale! So check them out while you can 🙂
Let’s get to the breakdown…
These are packaged very simply and I love that. Plus, I like that the colors are at the bottom of the tubes so you know which shades you’re picking up when it’s been thrown in the midst of your makeup collection!
These colors last all day and they look nice on the eyelids. The only thing that I find a little disappointing about them are the lighter colors (Milky Way, Falling Star). Unfortunately, they don’t apply as smooth on the eyelids. It’s hard to explain, but for some reason, they don’t look as nice on the eyes as they do swatches. But I do love the darker colors (Spinal, Moonrise, Ash Stone).
Like I mentioned above, I really like the darker colors. Especially Spinal and Ash Stone. I think they look very nice and love that they have a bit of duo chrome to them.. nice and unique 🙂
I’m Stick Shadow in Spinel
Do I know what they mean by spinel? No. But I do like this color! It has a beautiful, slight duo chrome to it. The base is a plum purple and the duo chrome is an indigo color. You can see this a bit in the swatch! This is probably one of my favorites out of the five shades I have!
I’m Stick Shadow in Moonrise
This is a nice, toned-down copper color. The reason why I say that it’s copper colored is because it’s not spectacularly vivid, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a nice color. It would be great for those of you who are looking for a more natural bronze 🙂
I’m Stick Shadow in Milky Way
Like I mentioned above, this is one of the colors that I’m a little disappointed in. Don’t get me wrong.. it’s still a really nice color and applies fairly smooth, but it’s just not as pretty on the eyes as it swatches. As you can see in the swatch, it has a bit of a pink under tone, which I wish more apparent on the lids. Like I said though, still not a terrible stick shadow.. I’m just picky 😉
I’m Stick Shadow in Ash Stone
This color is my other fave from the stick shadows I have. I like this because it makes a nice smokey base for darker looks, but it’s not overwhelmingly hard to work with. I’m going to try to explain this, so I hope you know what I’m talking about. You know when you put a dark base on your eyelids and it gets messy/looks too dark? Well this is a happy medium. This color adds a nice smokey slate shade to your look, but isn’t too black. Plus, look at that taupe under tone!
I’m Stick Shadow in Falling Star
I pretty much have the same thoughts about this shade as I do with the Milky Way shade. It’s still a nice stick shadow, but I wish it looked as pretty on the eyes as it does in the swatch. When you apply it to your lids, you can’t quite see that beautiful pink/peach under tone.
