Italian makeup brand Collistar is hard to come by outside of its home country, but some products are really fantastic. This month the company launched two new products, one of which will be covered in this post: the Twist Ultra-Shiny Eye Shadow sticks with crystal pearls.
According to the brand, these new eyeshadow sticks combine the light feel of a powder with soft creaminess. Eight shades are available: diamond (pale white), gold coral (reddened gold), quartz (lilac), amethyst (purple), jade (green), bronze (doh!), garnet (copper-ish shade) and titanium (blue-ish black). All of them have microfine glittery particles (the crystal pearls mentioned above) and are buidable to a very pigmented level.
I got four shades, which I have swatched below: diamond, quartz, bronze and titanium. The first two sets of swatches are in direct sunlight and the last set is under indirect natural light. I am a tad tan at the moment so my arm is probably close to N15-20 now.
