I am fortunate to receive products from The Body Shop.
I took this picture from my Instagram. I already reviewed The Body Shop Down To Earth Eyeshadow Quad in Gold (top right). For this post, I will review the shadow stick in the middle right.

Thoughts: When I first received this product, I was excited to try this product out, at the same time, kind of nervous. I wasn't too sure what to expect.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I like the packaging. I'm a huge fan of pen/cil types of eyeshadows. They're just easy to apply. You have apply it on the lid and blend it with your finger or at least that's how I use these types of products. Not only that, it's sturdy and well-made. It's easy to grab with your dominant hand. It's small enough to feel like a pen. It also has a tight top. As you put the top back on, it makes a clicking noise. The clicking noise tells me it's sealed. I cannot see the eyeshadow stick open unless you pull manually. For that reason, it's travel-friendly. It's small enough to throw it in your pocket, purse, and so on. Also, you don't have to have a sharpener. It's retractable. When I first got it, I tried to pull the shadow up at the bottom and it didn't move. Since it didn't move, I just assumed I got a broken shadow stick. I feel like a fool but it's at the top. I realized it after I used the product. For that reason, I didn't take a picture of the quantity of the product. To be honest, they gave a decent amount that should last awhile. Secondly, the consistency is creamy and just glides on. It does not tug on the lids. It really is easy to use. I just apply it on the lids and you get a decent amount of product. Depending on the individual, you can blend it out with your finger or not. I do recommend doing one eye at a time. It dries within seconds and once it's dried, it's set. It won't budge until you remove it. I also recommend not going over the area that has already set. If you reapply on top of the eyeshadow that has set, it will thicken and it will look patchy. That goes with any creamy shadows that set quickly. Third, the color is gorgeous. It's a sparkly gold that's universal all year round. You can wear it during daytime, nighttime, and so on. Not only that, it's pretty pigmented. I noticed the sparkles right away. It's not orangie-gold but more like yellow-gold. It's more the type I prefer. Lastly, it lasted all day on me. It did not crease, fade, smudge, and come off. It looked good at the end of the day as I applied it.
