I LOVE eye shadow sticks, and the colours here are some of my favourites. I don't use a lot of makeup, especially not eye shadow. They glide on, and you can blend them if you are really quick! They set after 30 secs and have good staying power.
My challenge with these is they are very difficult to sharpen. You have to take the ring out of the larger size hole on the sharpener, that was difficult enough. Because the body of the "pencil" is a plastic material it is slippery on the hand/fingers, difficult to grip and turn, and hard to sharpen because the blade is shaving a had plastic. The colour end at the bottom of the pencil actually came off because the glue failed under the force of trying to grip and turn the pencil while sharpening. That makes it hard to get to and utilise all of the product. If it had a built-in twist up it would be much easier to use.
