At times it happens (I am sure most of you will agree) when you hear or see a product, you just know it is made for you and you want to own it so desperately. You keep getting those fluttering butterflies in your tummy until you hit that “add to cart” button and only when you are sure that stuff is yours and on its way, life is all pretty and calm once more. It happens to me a lot (mostly with the clothes though). Recently that happened after I found about Mally beauty Evercolor Poreless Face Defender, it is supposed to be magic for oily skin, so I had to get it and along with that, I impulsively bought this Evercolor shadow stick in Saddle Shimmer. I was surprised with the quality of both the products. Where Evercolor Poreless Face Powder was a God sent for my oily skin (already reviewed on IMBB), the shadow stick was no less. Let me tell you all about this shadow stick.
Evercolor Shadow Stick is the perfect solution for a quick, long-wearing eye that looks incredible all day. The Shadow Stick is your primer, shadow base, and eye shadow all in one. You can also use it as an eyeliner. It won’t come off until you take it off! You can use it to line and define or create a quick smokey eye. The creamy texture helps to smooth out fine lines. Once your beautiful eye look is complete, you can be sure it will stay fresh all day on. It is created for the real woman who doesn’t have time to touch up her makeup mid day.

How To Use:
- Stroke the Evercolor Shadow Stick across the eye, smudging quickly if a softer look is desired.
- Take the line just beyond the natural end of the lid to widen your eyes.
- Lightly line across the top or bottom lash line to achieve that great soft, smudged liner look.
It comes in a mint green cardboard box. The shadow stick is a white color twist up lightweight plastic tube covered with a snap top that closes tightly. It is a very easy option to take with you while travelling.
My Experience with Mally Evercolor Shadow Stick – Saddle Shimmer:
For those of you who have not heard about Mally Beauty, here is a little information. Mally Roncal is a celebrity makeup artist. She has traveled the globe doing makeup for some of the most fabulous faces in the world, including Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna, Teri Hatcher, Celine Dion, Lee Ann Womack, Ashlee Simpson, Angelina Jolie, and Heidi Klum. She found Mally Beauty, a collection of over thousand products designed to deliver what she calls “bulletproof” beauty: user-friendly, multitasking products that truly stay put all day. This is a high-end brand and all her products are priced quite high.
Let us come to the review. This is an eye shadow in the form of a stick. So, the best thing first, there is no need of sharpening it. I picked up the color “Saddle Shimmer,” which is a gorgeous brown shade with fine shimmer, but there is no chunky glitter. It is intensely pigmented. This shade is so versatile, it can be worn in day time or it can be intensified for a night time look.
The texture is very smooth and creamy, making it very easy to work with. It applies evenly and glides very easily. After applying, you have to blend it within 30 seconds, otherwise it will set and will not budge at all. I just prefer using my fingers to blend. It can be used all over the eyelids as a single shadow or it can be smudged on the upper or lower lash line. It is so handy to have it in my stash; I use it all the time for different looks. The lasting power of this shadow stick is its highlight. After setting, it stays put for hours. It lasts for almost eight hours on my eyelids without creasing. You do not need to use a primer with this as this is supposed to be a primer and eye shadow in one.
According to the website, this is an amino acid based powder on a stick that has a silicon base and gets activated when air hits it (so remember to close the cap tightly). The product does not claim to be waterproof, but I did test it with water and it still did not move or fade. It does come off with my make up remover easily. I am so glad I bought it, I find myself reaching for it every single morning now. It is so effortless to use, just one swipe and I am ready to go.
Pros of Mally Evercolor Shadow Stick – Saddle Shimmer:
- Intensely pigmented.
- Long lasting power.
- Easy to use.
- Glides easily.
- Blends well.
- Shade is really pretty.
- No need to sharpen.
Cons of Mally Evercolor Shadow Stick – Saddle Shimmer:
This is indeed a high-quality product and truly a “tattoo on a stick.” Although it is pricey for a single shadow, but I will advice that you buy it in sets to get a good price, they keep coming out with different shades collections. You can buy it online from various sites. I will definitely recommend it to all you IMBB ladies.
