On my last visit to the MAC (Makeup Artist Cosmetics) store I learned my most loved product – the MAC Shadestick in Beige-ing- had been discontinued, with the exception of some very un-beige special edition colors. I felt like I had just been drop kicked flat on my rump! My beloved Beige-ing is described as a beige-toned champagne (frost), and if you don’t know, the Shadestick is a smooth, silky, rich and creamy eye shadow in a stick-style format. The color is rich – well as rich as beige can get – with a nice, subtle shimmer finish. I literally used this stick every single day in one spot – under my lower eyelashes. I loved the way it made my eyes pop, but looked super natural.
Totally bummed, I spent the next few days poking around on-line to find a product replacement for my most loved staple. I went to Ulta to physically check-out the potentials I’d investigated all over the web. I explained my tall order the sales person, “It needs to be waterproof, must have a brightening effect and not feel like a substitute in any way!” After a few um, no thanks responses from me, she led me to the Urban Decay liners. I was well versed with their shadows (a lot of them have glitter which is a BIG no thanks) and left me to experiment (on my hand). I was drawn to the 24/7 Glide On Shadow Pencils right away. I drew lines on my hand with more than a few shades and liked what I saw. But when I took a tissue to wipe my hand and nothing budged, I knew I’d found my replacement product and color: SIN
When I walked out, I had a purchased a kit that had 5 colors, including SIN, my new cosmetic best friend.
I’ve been having a blast with Sin’s four sidekicks as regular, top-lid liner and crease colors (Delinquent, Rehab, Juju and Clash). Today I wore the color Delinquent on the top lid, and of course, SIN on the bottom. Check out some pictures below! What product can’t you live without??
