I’ve always been able to keep my morning routine to a cool 3 minutes thanks to shadow sticks. My grandmother used to let me play with hers in the ‘70s when they were slick like oil pastels and would smudge (I used them on my Barbies!). And this is why shadow sticks are popular – they’re so fun and easy to use. It’s like being a kid again and playing with crayons! From L’Oreal to By Terry, I’ve tried them all. My current favorites are Clinique’s Chubby Sticks. The lip balms (at Sephora for $16 each) were super popular last year, so now the beauty giant is rolling out eyeshadows. The shades glide on smooth and aren’t oily or greasy like my grandmother’s. I’ve been loving the “big blue” stick lately. Don’t be afraid of the color, my brown-eyed Snobs! Nothing perks up our dark eyes better than pale icy blues – just keep it light with a quick swipe on the top and bottom of the lash line. Check out my favorite candy colors for spring after the jump! Are Chubby Cheek Sticks next?? To be available for $16 each at Clinique retailers in February.
