BY TERRY STYLO BLACKSTAR 3-in-1 Eyeshadow Stick in Smoky Black | Review and Swatches

Press Sample from Space NK (Affiliate Links)

BY TERRY STYLO BLACKSTAR 3-in-1 Eyeshadow Stick is a wonderful waterproof 3-in-1 eyeshadow, eyeliner and eye contour stick. It boasts a lightweight texture that effortlessly glides across the skin and deposits color evenly, but it is a little more dry than creamy eyeshadow sticks– presumably because it is both waterproof and it also functions as an eyeliner. I only have the Smoky Black shade from this range, and because it is an intense black I only use it as an eyeliner pencil. While it is thicker than traditional eyeliners, it has a build-in sharpener to keep the tip sharp (housed in the removable bottom of the tube). Once it sets it does not budge until I remove it at night. It doesn't flake, fade or transfer in the least bit, but I should note that I do not have oily eyelids. I find the formula has such longevity that I don't even need to use a primer, but if you have oily eyelids you might want to use a primer.
According to By Terry,

A precise, waterproof three-in-one stick with an integrated sharpener that can be used as an eyeshadow, eyeliner or eye contour for easy, glamorous makeup. Enriched with silk absolute, it provides ultra-comfortable wear with a lightweight, creamy texture that embellishes your eyes with magnetic matte to shimmering colors that can be blended, mixed or layered without creasing or fading. Its soft, tapered tip glides on easily for a natural or smoky look with no excess buildup.

Directions: Use as an eyeshadow, eyeliner or eye contour.
