A list! For Shingler's List!
Those that know me well, know that makeup is not my thing. I don't wear a lot, don't spend a lot of money on it and don't keep up with the latest tips or trends. (I probably should but I don't. Ha.) However, I am all about saving time and creating less mess. I rarely wear eye shadow because the powder is so messy and it always creases as the day goes on.
I have used the chubby stick from Clinique for years and I love the convenience. It does crease badly so I have to maintain throughout the day. As I used it a few weeks ago, I decided I would try to find something similar in other colors and with more staying power. This is what I purchased and my thoughts:
From the top (ranked in order of preference):
Sonia Kashuk - LOVE this color. It is a great taupy color (moonstone). This is also the best wand I have found. So easy to apply and does not crease after 12 hours of wear. Love, love this one.
Almay - this is a fun purpley color to complement by brown eyes. The wand tip is a little different shape than Sonia's and a little harder to manage but this one does not crease either.
Wet n Wild - neither of the above came in a grey color (that I saw), so I went with this one. It is more of a crayon like the chubby stick but kinda dry. It doesn't go on very smoothly or evenly but doesn't crease. I love the eyeliner on the other end.
Covergirl - Another grey/black. This one is really dark so I actually haven't worn it yet. (That would require getting a babysitter and leaving the house after 7 pm. Ha.) It seems to be a much creamier crayon than the one above it.
Clinique - As I mentioned, I love and have used this chubby stick for years. It is a great neutral color. However, it does need sharpening and creases really badly. Application is a cinch however.
