I got the shade Rose Gold in this and when I use this I don't put it it all over my lid. Instead I pop it in my inner corner and blend it out a bit with a small brush. If I don't put a primer on with it then it creases really badly. I do like the color and think it is a nice pop of color to brighten up the eye, it also makes my eyes look more open. I can't say that I am not disappointed that it doesn't have more product but I don't use to much of it so I don't see myself running out anytime soon. When I saw the name Rose Gold I thought it would be warmer like some of the other rose gold shades I have but this is actually more of a frosty pink to me. As a brow bone highlight this is also very pretty. My skin tone is above fair by a shade or two and runs a bit warmer and this shade contrasts nicely with my skin tone.
I like using this for everyday quick looks to just make it look like I put some effort into getting ready when in reality I didn't. As of right now I don't know if I would repurchase it because I think it is pretty but there are also tones of better ones out there that last better and don't crease as easily. But if you do decide to try it though make sure to use at least a bit of primer with it so it stays longer and doesn't fade or crease over time.

Disappointment. Bought in several colors and have had various issues. The color does not stay put, the caps do not seal well and one of my shadow sticks has depotted itself. As far as performance, I am not sure if they are waterproof as promised because they slid all around my face and didn't stay long enough to find out. The glitter specks in the Wicked Onyx one irritated my eyes all day, even after the line was gone from the top lash line.
Not a repurchase.

I liked this product because it goes on fairly well and it is very pretty. I have it in the color luminous crystal which looks like silver in the tube but is actually just silvery sparkles. It does crease a little bit but not too much at all. It stays on for a while too which is a pro

New cream shadow sticks by NYX. Half of the length is a clear cap, so you can see the shade fairly well & their in a retractrable twist up type pencil. Their the same length (of actual product, cap make jumbo pencils appear taller) as the NYX jumbo eye pencil & exact same diameter but wayy less product!
NYX jumbo eye pencil 5g/0.18 oz retails $4.49
NYX glam shadow stick 1.5 g/ 0.052 oz retails $4.49
But the products are clearly different. As the Jumbo eye pencils famously crease & are used more as bases, these are actual eye shadows.There were 16 shades available at my ULTA but I'm a sucker for champagne/beige/pearl/soft natural nude colors so skipped brighter fun colors and went for the Rose Gold. As the name implies its a rose gold champagne color with silver flecks of sparkles. I use this to line my upper lashes for a punch of warmth. Lasts average 4 hrs, but does smudge without a primer. As a shadow it really SHEERs out so your left with silvery sparkles over your lid & the rose gold itself fades out, it also creases. Unless ofcourse you trace & fill in the color completely on your lids, in this case the shadow will run out ALOT QUICKER.
Its not like the UD shadow sticks where you can punch a dot and smudge with your finger to get a fully layered shadow. Milani has a similar product as UD that is wayy more long lasting & pigmented but colors are limited. Milani Champagne toast (UD SIN DUPE) is what I wanted this product to be like, but its not. IMO your better off buying a similar color in NYX single shadows or even Jumbo eye pencils and layer it if you have to. Highly recommend Milani (check my review on which shades are dupes for UD)
