I really love this eye shadow stick. Having never used one before I was very impressed! It lasts ALL day long. I used it every day until it became dull and I went to twist it up to use it more... come to find out, it doesn't twist up! You have to sharpen it... I keep a regular pencil sharpener with my makeup kit that also has a large pencil sharpener side, but when I went to go use it, the space was too small for the shadow stick to fit in, I even tried sharpening with a knife, as you can see from the picture that didn't work really well! hahaha. From what I read, I'll have to actually go out and buy a makeup sharpener.... I love the color I bought "Bulletproof Beige" as I don't like things that are too bright and bold. It brought nice shine and color to my eyelids and made me look more awake. If it weren't for the sharpening thing, I'd have given it 5 stars. I really wish it was a twist up kind, you waste less shadow that way.... So, I'm a little disappointed, but that won't stop me from only buying this shadow, that's how much I love it.
