Jane cosmetics have proven themselves when it comes to : afford-ability and quality. Today I present "Jane Colorsticks- eyecolor and liner". Now, we might be abit intimidated with colorsticks (I was at the beginning). But these colosticks have proven to be more useful than not. When you are in a hurry and you dont have time to put eyeshadow on, these babies can truly cut down your make-up time. Sometimes, you want to give your eyeshadow color an extra boost. So, after having primed your lids, then using your desired colorstick: you will indeed see a remarkable difference (or improvement whichever way you want to see it) with your look. So, do give Jane cosmetics a "go". You might be surprised at how a drugstore brand is really able to compete with department store ones.
The Good: Depending where you live, a colorstick can set you back 5-6$ (affordable considering similar products out there are 3 times the price)
You can find Jane cosmetics at Walmart, Walgreens to name a few. You can find great deals at Walgreens for discounts on Jane products.
The Bad: Eventhough they DO have a decent selection ( they carry staple colors like green, brown, and black for example) They DO NOT have the bright colors that NYX Jumbo eye Pencil Offers (Ex. Hot Pink, Yellow, White, Orange). Eventhough you can find Jane Products at Walmart, you may find yourself out of luck that this particular product is out of stock. You may find yourself making an extra trip to Walgreens. The formula itself is a bit on the creamy side which can be good and bad. Bad if you have oily lids like me, good if you have dry lids.
The barrel itself is clear but, its a hard plastic. You need to be armed with a good cosmetic sharpener.
Here are some Jane Colorstick swatches. You can click it to see bigger picture.
