Revlon Colourstay Shadow Stick

I can be quite lazy when I comes to eye makeup. Sometimes I love experimenting and other times I love just a simple look which is quick and easy to achieve. Recently I picked up the new-ish Revlon Colourstay Smokey Shadow Stick in the colour Torch.

Top: the shadow stick
Bottom L-R: light and dark
Torch is a duo shadow stick, one end a light base colour and the other a darker liner or crease shade.  Torch is a light pinky fresh toned colour whilst the other shade is a dark chocolate brown colour. The tips of each colour are designed slightly different because of their uses.  The light end is slightly rounded, so it is easier to apply to the lid as a base.  The darker side has a more pointer finish so it can easily apply the product to the lash lines and the crease. 

When it comes to the shadows themselves, I find the brown side a little easier to work with as the light side can be a little dry. Every time I have used the light side I have had to warm it up on the back of my hand before attempting to use on the eye lid as I don't want to drag it across my delicate skin.  As the lighter colour is so dry it has already fallen out of the container a few times which isn't particularly good. 

The swatches in different lighting

So would I repurchase this after it's finished?  Yes I probably would as I like the neutral colour.  I bought a darker one recently so I can try to create a darker smokey eye (review to come).  I can see this being great in warmer climates, as it lasts an exceptionally long time.  I can also wear it at the gym and it doesn't move.

Do you like simple eye looks?  Have seen these at your local Revlon stand?
