As a huuuge fan, it's rare that a MAC product will truly dissapoint me. They're usually of a very high standard that tends to run throughout the entire range of products, yet I wasn't really pleased with the results many of the Shadesticks gave me. MAC market them as a 'rich and creamy eyeshadow delivered in a sophisticated stick-style format.' Okay, they are rich, I will give them that. Creamy, however? Not so much. Unless I warm them up for a while before using, they tug on the skin and drag across the eyelid resulting in anything but a smooth finish :-/ And the 'sophisticated' packaging has cause many of my own and others, to break halfway down the ...

Mac is a brand that I have come to rely on and it is a great quality range which has something to suit everyone. It is not the cheapest brand but the quality is really worth it and you need minimal amounts of the product so it lasts a lot longer than other products. Mac Shadestick is a pencil type product that is used as a creamy eyeshadow, which leaves your eyelid smooth and silky, but at the same time can also be used as a liner so you have two products for the price of one. It glides on easily and as it is blended leaves a great shine to the shadow. You do not need to apply a lot of this product unlike similar products they need to have a lot applied to ...

The Mac Shade Stick last time I bought it was £13, this was over a year ago, my shade stick has lasted me a long long time. I know I should bin it and replace it as its older then the 12 months blanket rule for make-up, but the fact is, Mac do discontinue make-up colours as they have so many, they replace it with other shades and this can mean its hard to replace the colours to the exact same colour. The colour I bought was a pinky bronze, called Penny, but there are many different shades. It comes in a black tube with a coloured end, 'Mac Shade Stick'. You need to take of the lid and can see the crayon like make-up stick which you can wind up or down the ... Read the complete review

The mac shadestick for me is a godsend and a product that I cannot fault in any shape or form as its the best make up product that Ive ever used. It comes in only a few shades and the darkest one is currently 'sharkskin' which is black, it is highly compacted dewy silky texture and is not powder based but almost like a thick crayon for eyes. Kept within a black pen like form, its light, easy to use and you can take it everywehre for top ups however this is rarely needed as it lasts all day and more so. Its perfect to use on its own for a dark and sultry look or a lighter look with the lighter shades for easy application and incredibly quick ... Read the complete review

I've only got one shadestick that I bought along with the colours to complete the Viva Glam V look for the Pamela Anderson eyes. I must say, unlike my experience with the other MAC products, which I LOVE, I'm not too fond of this one... I bought the colour mangomix, a coppery orange shade. It was recommended to me by one of the MAC make up artists. They said that it would bring out the colour of the shadows and complete the look. When they applied it on my lids, I couldn't really see what they were doing as I had to close my eyes, so I assumed that it really did make a difference to the look. Unfortunately, when I tried it the next day, I didn't get the ... Read the complete review
