Unstoppable Shadow Stick – Maybelline New York

Eye shadow is a great tool to highlight your eyes but do you ever feel like you have to apply it multiple times a day just to keep the color fresh?  Do you also find yourself using multiple colors just to create the shading that you want?  If you’re in the same boat as me then I would like to share my latest discovery with you:  the Unstoppable Shadow Stick!  Not only will the color last all day, you can create lighter and more intense shades with just one stick!

The last time that I went to the Dollar Tree I was surprised to find Maybelline eye shadows so I thought I would give them a try.  After using it once I was completely hooked!  I couldn’t believe how easy it was to use!  The shadow stick didn’t smudge, it didn’t feel heavy or wet on my eyes, and the fresh color lasted all day long.  That is why I am totally in love with…the Unstoppable Shadow Stick!

Where can I purchase them?  As I mentioned, I purchased the shadow sticks from the Dollar Tree for only $1!  It was quite the steal!  If you do not have a Dollar Tree nearby you may want to check your local Wal-Mart, Target or Walgreen’s.  You can also order similar shadow sticks online off of Maybelline’s website.  While the same shades that I purchased are no longer available on the Maybelline website, they do offer basically the same technology only in different shades: http://www.maybelline.com/Products/Eye-Makeup/Eye-Liner/Eye-Studio-Master-Smoky-Longwearing-Shadow-Pencil.aspx?looks=Eyes&cm_mmc=LabeliumSearch-_-GoogleGeneric-_-MNY+Eyes-_-shadow%20stick&gclid=CNSLkPHH3bgCFQ1gMgodSyYA-w

Now that I have purchased mine, how do I use it?  When I apply my eye shadow every day I usually do the following steps:

A)     Twist up the tip of the shadow stick so that it is about 1/8 of an inch above the top of the container.

B)      Gently run shadow stick across entire eyelid to create a lighter, more even color.  (If desired, you can also use the shadow stick on the inside corners of your eyes and/or your brow bone.  In order to do so, just glide the stick very gently across to achieve a very light color.)

C)      In the outer creases of your eyes, apply multiple layers to achieve the color that you like.

D)     Wear all day and don’t worry about color fading or smudging! (To remove the eye shadow, simply use baby oil or any make-up remover.)

I hope that you enjoy this product as much as I do!  Have fun with it, play with different shades!  Create a fun look that fits you!  You’re beautiful just the way you are! 🙂

Everyone has their own favorite pair of jeans that just seems to fit.  They’re comfy yet durable, stylish yet versatile.  Even though it may be too warm to wear your favorite jeans in the heat of summer, don’t let your love of denim stop there!  Denim is a great material and is available in tons of funky color varieties besides your usual blue.  Here are some denim pieces I have that I’m totally in love with!…
