In the winter, it's hard to avoid coming face-to-face with the trifecta of eye makeup-depleting forces: wet snow, skin-flaking dryness, and freezing winds. Although Mother Nature is particularly fickle this time of year (and clearly has a vendetta against your favorite mascara), that doesn’t mean you should completely give up on fun eye colors.
Enter Mally Beauty’s Evercolor Shadow Stick. Specifically designed to stand up to soggy situations, the creamy formula glides on smoothly and leaves behind a trail of vivid, shimmery color. But be warned: Once the formula meets the outside air, it activates, giving you “30 seconds of playtime” to smudge and blend before your look is sealed. Once set, theses shades do not budge—seriously. Not only that, but they boast some serious multitasking skills: the three-in-one formula acts as a primer, shadow base, and light-catching shadow. (Hello, precious minutes of additional slumber!)
This week, Birchbox editor and self-proclaimed makeup minimalist Maura took these cream shadows for a test drive. Her final verdict? "As someone who would normally skip eyeshadow, these easy-to-use pens simplified the whole application process. A few swipes of the Violet hue lasted all day, even through a high-intensity dance workout class."
So, grab those galoshes and bravely face the inclement weather—we promise, your shadow won't pull a slip-and-slide.
