These were on loan to me from dear Lunaface from The Flintstone Loves Pretty who knows how much I love cream eye shadows especially those that come in a stick! I'm still reeling over how fabulous the Kiko ones are.
Solone is a Taiwanese drugstore brand from what I can gather. You can get more information about them here.
If it is not for Luna, I would not have been able to play with so many interesting brands that I would probably not have access to or not know about, thanks babe!

These are very handy sticks that has a cap that clicks shut. Not a fan of the pastel pink casing though but who cares, it is the product that matters. It twists up.

I'll be honest, they aren't the creamiest cream shadows I have tried before. They do apply slightly patchy so I go over my eyelids with this a few times. They are quite easy to blend but I need to blend fast. They are budge proof and I only spotted minimal smudging after 4 hours.

These eye shadow sticks however don't play well together or with other cream products but you know what I think they look pretty darn good on their own. I love the two smokey looks I created with just one colour.
On the website, they sell for $17.90. Not sure what currency it is in but I think Luna got them at a steal for $4. How cool is that? For that price I would gladly pick up all and play with them and live with the slight patchiness. I do wonder how long they will stay creamy for though.
Please check out Luna's review of them at her blog here.
