I have to admit, i haven't touched a shimmering stick in ages. As i prepare the shop for grand opening, I took one of each color out as display and sample for my customers. It has been so long since I've used them, i forgot what they were like.
I remember once Jen (frmheadtotoe) have asked me about them and stated she really like them do to their pigmented consistency. She asked if I ever use them as a eyeshadow base, because they really bring out the colors of the shadow you pack on top. At the time i only use the white one for highlighting and under my eyes, and didn't really pay attention to all the other colors. Last night i decided to test them out again. As you can see in my picture, the pigment of the colors are very bright. I love how the colors turned out even on a cell phone camera. Besides the incredibly fragile cap, these shimmer sticks are a good tool to have for makeup artist who explores a lot of colors. They are fairly inexpensive and they are loads of fun. If you own a Taiwanese shimmer stick, take it out, use it, play with it, and fall in love with it again like i did.
