i had first seen these in LOOK magazine, with the shade 'toasted' being compared to 3 other clour sticks, including the nars multiple. the elf one won. so i decided to try them. as is common with elf, the website swatches were terrible, and toasted was waaaaay too dark of a brown for me, but would do as an emergency cream shadow when used with a brush.
my favourite shades for cheeks are persimmon and . spotlight makes a really nice highlight colour and lilac petal gives a nice sheen to the lips along with pink lemonade
the formula its self is ok, they are bit hard, so best blended with a warm finger, but once they are on the stay for a long time and give a nice subtle colour.
have you tried these? do you like colour sticks in general?
