What It Does: A Multi-Tasking Eyeshadow Stick

First and foremost, let's address what makes these eyeshadow sticks even worthy of a review. Just like the product's description on Jane Iredale's site, The ColorLuxe Eye Shadow Sticks are true multi-taskers. These rich, cream-to-powder sticks can be used as an eye shadow, liner, or highlighter, allowing for limitless creative possibilities. Whether you want to shade, highlight, or define your eyes, these sticks do it all with ease. They're a convenient single product that can serve multiple purposes, which is a significant advantage, especially for those who love to experiment with different looks or need a quick touch-up on the go.


Shade Features: Highly Pigmented And Buildable

The second item to discuss is shades. Available in 10 timeless matte and pearl shades, the ColorLuxe Eye Shadow Sticks offer highly pigmented, buildable color. From subtle daytime looks to bold evening statements, these sticks deliver a consistent, vibrant color payoff that can be layered to achieve the desired intensity. The shades are thoughtfully curated to complement various eye colors, making it easy to find the perfect match. For brown eyes, shades like Alabaster and Moonstone are recommended, while green and hazel eyes can pop with Ivy or Bronze. Blue eyes will sparkle with Midnight or Saddle.


The Review

"As someone who uses eyeshadow sticks daily, I was more than intrigued to test Jane Iredale's new ColorLuxe Eye Shadow Sticks. And I must say, they impressed me. What I loved most was their smooth, glide-on application. The formula adhered effortlessly to my eyelids without tugging or smudging, likely due to the inclusion of low-melting-point waxes. This feature ensures a comfortable and gentle application, particularly important for the delicate skin around the eyes—and I found that to be true. Additionally, if you love using your fingers to smooth out eyeshadow (like I do), you'll be happy to know the formula is one of the best at blending I’ve come across.

Once applied, the product was set to a velvety-soft powder finish that looked natural and stunning. It stayed put throughout the day, with little to no fallout from morning until about 5:00 PM.

Another feature I loved was the packaging. It's practical and user-friendly, with a built-in sharpener that allows you to maintain a precise tip for detailed work.

All in all, these eyeshadow sticks earn my approval. I’ll probably buy at least one or two more to keep in my makeup bag."
