If like me, you still have regrets on having missed out on limited edition eye crayons like the CHANEL Stylo eye shadows and the Topshop eye crayons Mystical and Ramble… (*moment of silence*) then you’ll be as excited as I was to see the Grunge Sticks in Topshop’s latest Spring Summer collection.
Unkempt (top) is a charcoal black with fine silver shimmer and Go-Go (bottom) is a shimmery sea foam green and at £7 are nice dupes for the CHANEL Stylo eye shadows in Black Stream in Jade Shore. Like the CHANEL ones there is a slight cooling sensation on application to the skin. Both have a creamy consistency, have good pigment and blend very nicely without much fallout (just a *tiny* bit on Go-Go).
See swatches below compared to other black and shimmery green cream shadows:
