You know (or don't know) how much I love my cream eyeshadow sticks. Especially the Milani ShadowEyez which I recommend to anyone who will listen. So when NYX came out with a new kind somewhat recently, I made an order on their website right away (that was months ago, LOL). I had high hopes for these. I was hoping they would be an improved version of their popular Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils. I don't generally enjoy the Jumbos from NYX because they're not long wearing, feel a bit oily, and need to be set with powder eyeshadow to prevent creasing.
I'm tend to blab so let me keep this short. Here's what I think about the NYX Infinite Shadow Sticks:
Color selection - beautiful
Pigmentation - great
Longevity - great, these are very crease resistant
Texture - average/below average
Sadly, these failed for me in terms of texture. They are not nearly as dry and horrible as the Rimmel ScandalEyes Shadow Paint I reviewed before but they are noticeably drier than all of my other favorite cream eyeshadows. This translates into having to tug on your eyes a bit more to get them to blend nicely. Again, they aren't terribly difficult to work with but I find myself reaching for my other cream eyeshadows instead. These have sadly become forgotten and I wouldn't repurchase another color. It's a case of: not bad but there's better (At the same price point, I might add. I'd pick the Jordana 12-Hour Sticks, Milani ShadowEyez, and Maybelline Color Tattoos over these.)
