Maybe I'm just getting lazy or maybe it's because it's summer and I don't want to spend very long doing my makeup, but I really like to use products that are quick and convenient. It seems that a lot of other people feel the same way because brands are releasing shadow sticks and I couldn't resist buying some!

Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick: I knew that I needed a matte shadow so I chose Cobblestone, which is a medium brown, which is slightly cool toned. I normally prefer warm tones on my eyes but sometime like the look of a cool tone as it can look quite polished. That said, I won't wear this alone (maybe in winter but it's too cool on its own for the summer months). Again, the quality of this shadow is excellent and I would advise applying to one eye at a time, rather than applying to both and then going in with a brush because by the time you get to the second eye, it will have set.
I love how quick and easy these are to use, but also how dependable they are because they don't budge and even though it's summer and quite muggy, there are days when I want to wear make up and they'd work perfectly in the evening too.
Do you like shadow sticks? Do you still stick to your usual makeup routine in the summer months or is it more pared back? I'd love to hear!
