[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] Anything that’s quick and easy to apply – that actually works – is good in my book since I lack the concentration to do much more than a fleeting mirror moment just now. I also love an eye stick so these Dazzle Sticks from Lisa Armstrong for Avon are an absolute joy.
If I was to be a little pedantic, they’re not quite as ‘dazzling’ as the name suggests but they do give off a good metallic lustre and importantly, they stay put! I’m so impressed with them. The colour edit is perfect in a mix of neutrals that vary in intensity – I’d choose Goldmine for a quick eye brighten while Gunpowder would be a good smoulder or smoky eye option (not that I think I have the barest spark of a smoulder in me – but I might – eventually!).
There are seven shades to choose from if you’re like me and can only rarely be bothered with anything more than a mono lid. Natural look make-up is a huge search term because it’s what we’re all craving at the moment, but when the office Zoom calls, these are the time-saving answer to looking ‘done’, but not overly so. And, any surprise calls – you can literally swipe your lids before you answer.
The Ultimate Beauty Advent Calendar
The SpaceNK Advent calendar is almost here, pre-order for shipment on the 15th October with beauty gifts, worth over £700, from La Mer, Augustinus Bader, Rose Inc and more.
I wore Firecracker (the bright bronze shade) all evening yesterday and it didn’t wear off at all (despite a quick power nap) so the staying power is also impressive. If you have particularly oily lids, you might want to wear with a primer but I didn’t need to. I like these too for those of us losing our lid definition – it’s impossible to do a ‘cut crease’ when it disappears into folds but it’s very easy to do just a thick or thin line on the lid that shows at the lash root for some colour and cheer. The metallic element is even better for this – follow up with mascara and you are done. The only thing you might want to consider is that they don’t come with a sharpener so you’ll need to have the right fit sharpener or be an expert whittler.
From bottom to top: Firecracker, Perfect Storm, Molten, Goldmine, Gunpowder and Bronzed. At £10 each, these seem like a win for updating your colours or by-passing the onerous task of a palette and paring things down to a manageable mono lid. You can find Dazzle Sticks HERE, non-affiliate HERE.
