This is a great drugstore option, with just a few cons. First, the pros: the stick format is super convenient, and the texture is light enough that when patted out it doesn't get cakey like the Milani or Jordana cream colored sticks can get. I also like the color of this better than those products because I think those can be too stark and too white on my lids and alter the color of my shadows too much. This is just disappears right into the skin and evens out any discoloration but isn't too noticeable. The cons here are few and not significant for me: the texture can be kind of crumbly, I find that I have to run my finger over the top of this and pat it on, when I try to draw it on to the lid directly it can be really crumbly. Also, sometimes the whole stick of product does come out of the tube, but I can just press it in. And I do love that the lid clicks into place so you don't have to worry that the lid's going to come off in your makeup bag. I find the lasting power of this to be really great, however I do wear Nars pro prime eyeshadow primer underneath. If I wear this by itself, I only get about 4 hours before I get creasing. However, I do think the average person could use this alone and not have any problems, I just have super oily lids and have to use the Nars even under MAC paint pots, Mally shadow sticks, and Maybelline color tattoos. But this does have a valuable place in my routine, and I use it every day in place of my MAC soft ochre now.
