A shimmery, three-in-one cosmetic must-have, our Shadow & Liner Crayons “chill” when applied and offer an all-day cooling sensation. Featuring ingredients such as aloe and glycerin (a natural humectant), the soft gel formula glides on effortlessly and eliminates the need to “pull” or “tug” at sensitive eye areas. Use as an eyeshadow, eye liner or color-enhancing shadow base.
Palladio’s Shadow & Liner Herbal Crayons come in 12 shades. The shade in Iced Coffee is reviewed, below.
This eyeshadow comes in standard pencil form and is slightly thinner than NYX’s Jumbo Eye Pencils. They don’t come with a sharpener, so you might need to invest in one.
Iced Coffee is a medium taupe with light tan shimmers. The color is perfect for everyday wear and would fit any skin tone.
The cream formula is soft and smooth, making them glide onto the skin without a fuss. After a few seconds, the color sets and won’t smudge or travel.
The shadow is very long-wearing, showing no change in appearance throughout the entire day. I tested one eye with primer and the other without. If you use this product without a primer, it will start to crease after about 3 hours. The eye with primer showed zero signs of creasing, even after 7 hours.
Ease of Use: 10/10
Applying eye color to your lids couldn’t be more simple than with Palladio’s crayon. The pencil form is extremely convenient and the formula glides onto the skin with no tugging or skipping. If you need to run out the door, this is the best option for a quick eye look.
For $6.00, you get 1.9 grams of product. NYX’s Jumbo Eye Pencils are $4.50, but only contain 0.5 grams. You get a lot more for your money with Palladio’s pencil.
