Almay Intense I-Color Shadow Stick


Almay Intense I-Color for blue eyes


Almay Intense I-Color for blue eyes

Convenience must be an in-thing with all these shadow sticks popping everywhere. I can’t blame them. Time definitely is precious. Almay has 4 choices based on eye color. I have brown eyes but I chose hazel and blue eyes. I’m not much into blue shadows so I skipped on the brown eyed choice.

What the Almay website says about it…

new dazzling shadow sticks make it easy to create the perfect look any time or any where. simply swipe on the rich, vibrant shades to boost the natural brilliance of your eye color. the expertly coordinated complimentary shades can be worn together or alone for the perfect look whatever your mood. the highly saturated pigments won’t crease, fade or smudge all day long. with almay intense i-color™ shadow sticks, get beautiful, eye-popping color that lasts!

Let’s check out the swatches…

I only got to wear them for about 6 hours with primer. They are creamy, blendable but have to work quick before it sets, it didn’t crease, slight fading, no smudging. I find the colors flat and ordinary bear in mind I am used to layering shades and multi dimensional shadows but at this price point this product is good to have. They are available in drugstores and online for around $7.99.
