Missha Color Fit Stick Shadow Review

Even though I’m very much into skincare, my morning routines are short and utilitarian - a toner pad, vitamin C serum, and SPF. If I’m feeling extra awake or ambitious, I might throw on some mascara and a translucent powder. Even on the best weekday, I don’t have any energy to do a winged liner or anything that would require precision. But having a little something extra around the eyes makes a huge impact, so I thought that a stick cream shadow might be the low effort option I need.
I chose Missha Color Fit Stick Shadow, available on Jolse. These come in a few colors, mine is Cocoa Drizzle. It promises a smooth, velvety texture without irritation. The formula features sweet almond oil and coconut oil.
This is ok. It’s not what I thought it would be, but that doesn’t make it bad. I was looking for a very creamy formula that would smudge around well and create a sort of “last night’s makeup” look with almost no effort. This shadow is more like a very thick eyeliner that doesn’t really smudge too easily. But if I leave it as a mostly well-defined line, it imprints on my hooded upper lid and doesn’t look good. The way I’ve been using it is applying it like eyeliner (but thicker), then taking an eyeshadow brush and blending it out slightly. This works, but defeats the whole “no effort” point. If I need to involve a brush, then it’s probably not a weekday morning project hehe.
Obviously, these complaints are specific to me and do not mean the Missha stick shadow won’t work for others. It’s a very pretty, shimmery color that’s still subdued enough for office wear. And it feels pretty good on the eyelids.
