Elianto, a Malaysian home brand, recently launched their German made Long Wearing EyeShadow Stick. These are actually eyeshadows in a twist-pen form.
Elianto say’s about their long wearing eye shadow stick:
Applies like velvet, wears like a feather, stays tenderly on your eyes to last for hours. Cream to powder in stick; applies effortlessly and is beautifully blendable to a soft, powdery and waterproof finish.
This new range of Elianto Long Wear EyeShadow stick comes with six shade variety; Navy, Blue, Purple, Brown, White, and Black. Their packaging is pretty much standard pen like with a color coded bottom. Each stick comes with 1.4g of product, the product stick is not thin like a pencil but a bit fat(!) than usual; again nothing bulky like NYX Jumbo pencil. The coloured bottom part actually act as sharpener, which makes the product more unique and useful.
Let me be honest, I’m seriously enjoying them in my way. They reminds me of NYX jumbo pencil but somehow I love these more. The product claims to be eyeshadow but I like them more as my eyeshadow base. All of them are insanely pigmented, they won’t budge unless you touch them but they aren’t really smudge proof. When you wear them as shadow and blend them they does loose intensity. Therefore when blended they don’t really look nice; I guess that is pretty much normal for all creamy shadow stick out there, even my Laura Mercier shadow stick act same.
Waterproof ? Yes, as they are wax-based so they are waterproof and doesn’t come off with water.
However, if you use these shadow stick as a base for your shadow then they works wonder. If you are familiar with NYX Jumbo pencil then you know already what I’m trying to say. As a base they are supper long wearing and budge proof, won’t get into your crease and will help your shadow to pop up more.
Another best thing I found, these are great as eye liner. Only black and white shade in the range is matte in texture but other four shade are kind of shimmery or may be I should say metallic. With that provided sharpener its easier to sharpen them and get a thin line upon application.
I’m sure you can see from the swatch how pigmented are they, impressive, isn’t it?
The shade Navy is not actually a Navy but kind of teal green leaned more into blue. The shade purple is more like a burgundy I would say. Nonetheless, I absolute love all them colors yet Blue one is my favourite :)
Overall, though they didn’t work for me as shadow but I’m in love with Elianto Long Wear EyeShadow Stick. They are quality product with best value of money. I really wish they’ll come up with more color.
