Well, I've learnt a new trick. To heck with faffing around with a smokey eye let alone blending colours. I've discovered the chunky eye shadow stick and I'm crushing it, (not literally but had to use this word as its deluging writings in Blognation.) Back to eye pencils, mine is Laura Gellar in Pewter. I'm not alone in this discovery. Around the globe women are abandoning the two tone time wasting shadow blendathon. Instead we're crayoning in one colour from lashline to crease and be done with it. Well , apart from liner and mascara. They are transportable, easy to use, very little room to make a mistake, light to carry and cheap enough generally to keep one in a desk drawer at work.
So what is available in the way of eye crayons and what am I using?
Here is mine. From Laura Geller in the USA, in Pewter. A smear of this lasted me all day and did not ride into the creases. I was impressed.
The ones that I've heard the ordinary folks like me rave about are as follows.
NYX jumbo eye in Iced Mocha or Yogurt NYX jumbo eye
Rimmel Scandalous Eyes pencils in Bad Girl Bronze
Maybellline Eye Studio Colour Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze or Inked in Pink. This is not a pencil. I couldn't find Bad to Bronze on but here is a link to Inked in Pink
Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon here
Laura Mercer Cavier sticks seemed well recommended in Moonlight here
That's a bit of research done for you, dear reader. There should be something there for whichever country you reside, from UK to Sydney and every stop between.
Have you discovered eye crayons yet? If so which are you using and how are you using them?
