Estee Edit The Edgiest Kohl Shadowsticks- Guilt and Frost Bite

If you read my last post, I introduced the new Estee Edit collection. Today I'll be capping off the eyeliner reviews of June with the Edgiest Kohl Shadowsticks from Estee Edit. In addition to just reviewing products, I wanted to provide helpful tips such as what to look for when buying an eyeliner. In this post, I want to show you how a shimmery nude eyeliner can brighten and make your eyes look bigger!


Basics

Name: Estee Edit The Edgiest Kohl Shadowsticks
Shade: 10 shades. I have 02 Frost Bite and 03 Guilt
Price: $26
Amount of Product: 1.4g
Availability: Exclusively at Sephora 



Packaging: The product is housed in a slim plastic packaging that twists up. When you open it up, the tip is presharpened but it will get duller as you use it up. The end of each stick has a color coordinated cap so you can easily tell what shade you are picking up. The packaging feels fun and true to Estee Edit's brand.

Formula: Both of the colors had great pigmentation and lots of shimmer. I'm using this as an "eyeliner" but I think it would be better to use this as an eyeshadow. It tugs slightly on the skin as the formula is not as creamy but this is what gives it's long last power (see next point). However, the formula is smooth and not patchy at all.


Longevity: I was most impressed by the staying power of these shadowsticks!! I swatched them on the back of my hands and went about my day and it stayed on without budging! These will also last on your eyes for 12 hours easily. You do need a pretty good makeup remover such as a micellar water or cleansing oil but this would be so great to apply all over the lid and not worry about all day.



02 Frost Bite: Gun metal silver with a hint of green. 

03 Guilt: Light beige with a peachy shimmer


The look I wanted to do was inspired by Korean makeup. If you've ever watched any K-Pop music videos, you'll notice all the girls have this shimmery bottom liner that really makes the eyes twinkle. See example below.


Guilt is the perfect color to do this as it's shimmery but not too icy. All I did was smudge it in the inner third of my bottom eyeline. It's so easy to do and I think it really completes the look! Also side note to smudge out eyeshadow on your bottom lash line to bring the look together.

Overall I really like these for it's versatility and longevity. The colors are flattering and would appeal to a large range of people. I used it as an eyeliner but these would be great all over the lids as well. If you are looking for an easy swipe of color that lasts all day, make sure to give these a try!
