This eyeshadow stick from Laura Mercier is the perfect wash of colour - making it look like you've put in loads of effort when you haven't, really.
I find eyeshadow sticks really simple and easy to use. I'm no expert at blending so shades like this (Sugarfrost) are the perfect stand alone shades that don't need any blending or any others to make them pop, look amazing all by themselves.
I always use this on its own - there's no need for a primer as the colour sticks around with no creasing all day. The pigmentation is is amazing too - you can build it up for a much more intense, metallic payoff or just give a quick swipe across the lid for a gorgeous sheen.
I've noticed with other eyeshadow crayon sticks that after a while they can dry out and they seem to drag the delicate skin on your eyelid. I've not had this problem with this stick - in all the time I've had it, it's stayed the same creamy consistency since I first used it. Perfect!
The shape also allows you to get right into the tear duct area and line the underneath of your eyes pretty closely - if that's your sort of thing!
