One Sweep Eyeshadows #2

Swatches (left to right): p2 020 'Champagne' and 010 'Rosé'; Catrice 030 'Copper and Paste' and 040 'Brown to Earth'
I can't believe I'm going to London in a week! It's insane how time flies! But I'm beyond excited and so grateful to be able to go on such a journey with my boyfriend! 💓

For today's post, I want to show you some eyeshadow sticks that only need one sweep and a bit of blending for your everyday makeup look! I have two from Catrice Cosmetics and two from my p2 Cosmopolitan Chic box, which I recently did a post about as well.

Let's start with the Pump Up The Glow Eye Blur Pens from p2. There are two gorgeous shades - 020 'Champagne' and 010 'Rosé'.
When I first used them, I had to warm them up quite a bit until they were creamy enough to actually put on the lid but once I was able to apply them, they had a really pretty and great colour payoff! Now they glide on very easily and are super easy to blend as well!
Both the shades also feel very creamy when you blend them with your finger and it gives these eyeshadow pens a more minimal yet very pretty finish. Due to their more minimal finish, I like to use them for most of my everyday makeup looks and they look amazing all day long and give just the right amount of colour to the eyes!

The other two one sweep eyeshadows I want to talk about are the Catrice Cosmetics Stylo Eyeshadow Pens in the shades 030 'Copper and Paste' and 040 'Brown to Earth'.
They glide on very easily and blend beautifully as well! Once they're applied to the eye you just have to blend them a bit and you're ready to go. Both of the shades also have a bit of shimmer in them which makes them even prettier as it's not too much to wear for an everyday makeup look!

They are a bit of a pain to take off, though. I always have to use a two-step routine for taking off my eye makeup whenever I use these - first I use a makeup remover wipe and afterwards, I use the Garnier Pure Active Sensitive Anti-Blemish Clarifying Tonic on a cotton pad and put that all over my closed eyes and let that do its magic on removing these eyeshadow pens without me having to roughly rub them off!
There are also a few more shades in this range of eyeshadow pens from Catrice, but I only picked up these two in my recent highstreet haul!

Overall, I love all four of these and they're perfect for on the go as well! I especially love using them when I'm staying over at my boyfriend's house and I don't want to bring loads of makeup with me.
