I bought it cos of the name!! Lol. It has not disappointed though - great golden colour payoff, I don't need much for a good shimmer wash or eyeshadow base. Lasting power is good too, and product is creamy and easy to work with. (Use fingers, not direct from pen, or at least put it on your eyelid with the pen and then spread out with fingertips) Only downside is there is not much in the pen!! I don't ever want it to run out!

A gorgeous golden color with lots of shimmer in it. Nice base for lighter e/s w/ golden or yellow undertones, like Ricepaper or Chamomile. Works great as an inner corner/brow bone highlight as well, but don't apply straight from the stick, use your finger instead (otherwise blending is a pain).
I would repurchase it, if it weren't LE.

This is my first shadestick, and I was kind of skeptical about using it as a base because by the end of the day, my eyeshadows ALWAYS end up creasing, even if only a little bit. The color is great, it's not overly glittery, and it blends well. I was surprised to see that more than 12 hours later, it was still looking great. I've been really impressed with it so far, definitely a keeper!!!

This was my first ShadeStick. I really love this color, its bright & shimmery & just what i wanted as a base for my brighter green e/s's. Id say pick this up if your looking for something for your brighter shadows & make them stay put. Only thing to watch out for is this seems to clump in places if put on too heavy so keep a light hand w/ this.

Cuddle is the best shadestick I've ever tried, as a base, highlight, or an all-over colour. The subtle golden shimmer ads a glowy effect without looking sparkly, and if you want a little more dimension to your shadows, wear it underneath and it looks amazzzing! I may go get another before they sell out!

This was the first thing a bought of the Warm & Cozy collection after having swatched it on my hand. MAC describes this as a frosted light golden yellow and I agree 100%. The only thing I would like to add is that it's got shimmer in it. When I first tried it I used it straight up and down in the inner corner of my eyes to try to brighten them. They looked brighter because of the highlight, but it was a cakey shimmery mess. The day after I applied some to my fingertip and then on to the eye area. Much better! That way I didn't get a lot of product and I could blend it better. I use this as a subtle highlighter and over all lid color. Since it's about the same color family as my golden NC15 skin, it doesn't show up a lot, but it's still highlighting and giving me some glow where added.

This is one of the new shadesticks from The Warm & Cozy Collection. As with some of the reviewers below who used MAC Vanilla Pigment, I have never used it so I can't compare it to that, but makes me want to try that out. The packaging is really sleek and pretty. It applies smooth, I used it as a base under Modelette on lid and Mulled Cider in the outer v. The formulation is great compared to the old shadesticks. I also worn it the whole day and it didn't crease. I applied it all over my lid as well as in the inner V. This stuff is the bomb It brightens the eye with a pretty sheen and to me it was not chunky at all. It gives me an awake look with a really pretty subdued golden color coming through the shadow. I love this stick and can't wait to try it out with other colors. Too bad this is LE.

The is a very gorgeouse white gold color. It is a great base. Very creamy and easy to blend. Wish I would have gotten a back up.

I was very pleased when I tested this product on the back of my hand in the store before I bought it. I didn't expect such a good color pay off from a light color shadestick. I am always looking for a light color base that will help other light to white colors stay on and come off vibrant and bright. This is a very good product for just that. Seems to be a little better as a "white" base than NYX's milk but I will have to work with it more to see. Of course, it is significantly more expensive than the NYX product so it SHOULD be a better quality. I purchased it and "penny" and I think I like this one better. Really do love MAC shadesticks. generally, though!

The comparison to Vanilla Pigment is very true, and thats probably why I love this one so much!
When I went to look at this I brought my Lemon Chiffon Shadestick to compare. Cuddle has more of a gold glow, and more intense color pay off than Lemon Chiffon so I thought it was worth having both.
This is GREAT for a quick base under other shadows, or as a highlight in the inner corners, etc. Makes me wish I bought a backup since its LE!

This is a LE shadestick from the 2009 Warm and Cozy collection. Cuddle is basically a shadestick form of vanilla pigment--- frosty cream with a strong yellow sheen. The product goes on very smoothly and doesn't crease unless applied heavily on the eyelid. This one is perfect for a quick inner corner highlight or even brow highlight if you like frost.
