stila’s Smudge Crayon Review

I love stila’s eye shadows. I’ve been wearing them for over 10 years. I find their colors are so pigmented, thus having to use less of the product and the eyeshadow lasting for such a long time.

On Haute Look, they had stila. So of course I checked it out to see what was on sale. I saw these Smudge Crayons, and for $8 I couldn’t resist trying them. I have a deep navy and my favorite Kitten color. Even though I saw these crayons don’t have great reviews on stila’s website, I freakin’ love my Smudge Crayons!

I’ve been using them for a couple of months now. And on Friday I thought I would do a little test. Here’s what I did:

  • 6:30 a.m. – Used my Kitten Smudge Crayon with stila’s powder Golightly shadow in the crease (liner was stila’s waterproof liquid liner in dark brown).
  • Worked all day!
  • 6:00 p.m. – Sweated my booty off at the gym lifting and walking on the treadmill with all of my makeup on.
  • 10:30 p.m. – took another picture of my eye makeup at the end of the day. And it looked fabulous!

The crayon goes on very silky and smooth. Seriously, I use it like a crayon coloring on a piece of paper. To me, it acts like a a perfect primer to set my crease shadow. I use the powder Kitten color, too, and I do feel the crayon pops more.

You may be thinking, “Em, you said you had a deep navy, too. How does that work for you?” Now, for the navy color, I’ve only used it as a liner. And it too lasts all day. I line my eyes and then use a Q-tip to smudge it more. It is so pigmented that I have not tried it all over my lid. That may be a bit much for work, huh?! šŸ™‚

I highly recommend the Smudge Crayons if you are looking for a great new type of shadow!
