Everybody knows, eye shadow is super fun. But it can also be time-consuming, tricky, and a little bit much sometimes. Unless you experiment on the daily with colors and textures, you might just settle for a simple liner and lashes look, which is perfectly acceptable and entirely stunning on its own. But for those days when you want to add a little sparkle with the utmost ease, shadow sticks are where it's at! These babies are fool-proof and will take your makeup to the next level with a little swipe and smudge. Go for an intense emerald lid or a soft sweep of satin color, whatever tickles your fancy. There are so many options to choose from! And you'll never have to deal with the disastrous scenario of your eye shadow breaking in the pan. Grab some of these sticks for on-the-go glam and you'll be sitting pretty with your secret weapon of sparkle, shimmer, and shine! Click any product to shop it!
