Beauty Pie launched the Beauty Pie Christmas Wondercolour Cream Shadow Stick Set as part of this year’s gifting collection, and the shades all looked so pretty.
I’ve tried a couple of the Beauty Pie Eyeshadow Sticks, and they’re lovely, so I decided to give this mini set a try, as part of their new membership plan (I explained about their new membership options right here).
“The best longwear cream eyeshadow sticks – encased in a beautifully decorative red and gold cracker – now come travel-sized, perfect for your handbag but also as a gorgeous little makeup gift set. Smudge-and-crease-proof, blendable, budge-resistant. Doubles as eyeliner (if you apply it along the edges). Four mini sticks per set. Imported from Italy.“
The Beauty Pie Christmas Wondercolour Cream Shadow Stick Set is £15.83 for members to buy, but if you don’t have a membership plan, the price of this set is £50. I feel like the £50 price is ridiculous.
By Terry sell four full size shadow sticks in their holiday collection for £52, and you get 3 x 1.64g shadow sticks. This set gives you 4 x 0.9g shadow sticks, so this set gives you a total of 3.6g for £50, and By Terry are giving us a total of 4.92g of product for £52.
Considering By Terry is a luxurious beauty brand, I feel like the Beauty Pie Christmas Wondercolour Cream Shadow Stick Set is seriously overpriced at the £50 “full price”. For £15.83 though, for members, it’s much more reasonable.
The Beauty Pie Christmas Wondercolour Cream Shadow Stick Set is packaged within a red, cardboard cracker with ribbon ties, and inside you get four mini cream eyeshadow sticks wrapped in tissue paper.
Each of the eyeshadow sticks are twist-up sticks, and you get the following four shades;
- Au Fait (shimmer gold)
- Cool Mink (matte brown)
- Lapis (shimmer blue)
- Wonderland (holographic pink)
All four shades are lovely and soft, making them easy to apply and blend. Each of these swatches are two or three swipes of each shadow stick, with Au Fait being very sheer, but the other three are more pigmented. Only one shade is opaque, and that’s Cool Mink.
I cannot get over how pretty the Wonderland shade is. It’s a mauve pink, with a duochrome blue / green shimmer shift, which translates beautifully on the lids. If I had to compare the formula to another brand, it would be Kiko. I actually think the formula is better in the permanent range of the Beauty Pie Wondercolour Shadow Sticks, which is interesting.
The Beauty Pie Christmas Wondercolour Cream Shadow Stick Set is really great quality, but By Terry Ombre Blackstar Shadow Sticks are far superior (trust me, I own seven of them) in how multidimensional and amazing they look on the eyes. I love the festive packaging, and if you can get it for the £15.83, I think it’s definitely worth that, and it’d be such a cute gift idea too.
