Topshop Spring Summer 2014 – Grunge Sticks

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:
