Part of the QVC Beauty Test Tube I just received was a Mally Evercolor Eyeshadow Stick in Twilight, which is one of her best selling products. I had actually just received one of these eyeshadows in the Mally High Performance Essentials collection I received back in February, but that color was Taupe. I'll swatch these two side by side so you can see the differences in the color.
The Evercolor Eyeshadow Stick is mean to be a 4-in-1 product, allowing you to simplify your makeup application but also sporting all day wear. This is a creamy, glide on shadow that includes a special silicone system which seals and lasts all day long. You have about 30 seconds to smudge and mess with the shadow until it is finally set, so this is definitely something to use quickly. This can be used as an eyeshadow, a primer, or an eyeliner.
Twilight is a warm almost golden taupe, which will be very clear in the swatch pictures, especially when compared to Taupe side by side.
Here is a side by side of the two pencils - I thought they looked extremely similar when I was looking at just the product itself without swatches. Once the swatches were done, there is a clear difference.
If you are looking for a cooler, almost silvery/lavender taupe, then Taupe is the one for you. If you prefer more golden/champagne taupes, then Twilight is it for you. Both are beautiful in their own right, but depending on your preference for cooler or warmer shades, there is a difference.
Both wear extremely well - once set I didn't have any creasing or smudging on my hand or eyes. This would definitely work well as a primer as well if you are quick with your application. I will say, though, I really like these on their own.
Do you own any of these Evercolor Eyeshadow Sticks? What are your thoughts?
These retail on QVC as singles for $25 a piece with several shades to choose from.
