Artistry Eye Crayons

If you told me that they were no longer making powder eyeshadows, I would not shed a tear. For over a year I've been having a wonderful love affair with eyeshadow sticks. They are the easiest thing for a girl on the go like me. Fire it over your lid, blend it with your finger or a brush and go.

I was recently intrigued by Artistry Eye Crayons*. Artistry is not a brand I had heard of before but the packaging and colours really stood out to me. It turns out Artistry is a really big world-wide brand that sells amazing quality products- they've even had Sandra Bullock as the face of the brand!

The eyeshadow stick trio contains three sticks- Sky Blue, Desert Sand and Indigo (swatches above). The packaging is solid and winds up to reveal more colour when required. They apply absolutely beautifully but you need to work fast as they set very quickly. When they set, they literally do not budge. I left the swatches on my hand for a few hours and they continued to look absolutely perfect. The Sky Blue is not a colour I would wear but it would be gorgeous on anyone with grey/blue eyes to make them pop. Desert Sand is a great cream gold that would make a great base for any other colour. However, the stand out for me was Indigo. The deep navy shade serves as a stunning alternative to black and really compliments my hazel eyes. It creates a beautiful yet soft smoky eye. I also used it as a liner to draw a simple cat eye and it looked great.

Overall, I'm very impressed by my first products from Artistry. I'd definitely recommend trying out the eye crayons as they make a great everyday eye!
