I wasn't going to pick this up but after seeing Caise from Wade Ashore and Replica from Visionary Beauty post beautiful swatches of Moon River, I had to have it. I cannot resist a shimmery taupe.
The Stylo Effect Eye Shadows comes in a stick form which I swivel up to get more product. The casing feels heavier than my Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks and I'm guessing the case is made of metal. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Isn't that the prettiest looking silvery taupe?
It does feel cool when first applied and it is easily blended. Unfortunately it does blend slightly patchy so I need to use my fingers to make sure I blend well. I can't apply too many layers though. After adding on another layer, the patchiness become very obvious. It is prone to creasing after 4 hours.

Moon River is a lovely colour but suffers from some blending issues. A light layer looks absolutely stunning but when I try to apply more, it becomes patchy and doesn't look as nice on my lids. There is a shelf life of only 6 months for these so I guess I have to try and use this as often as I can.
There are a total of 6 shades.
07 Moon River
17 Cool Gold
27 Pink Lagoon
37 Jade Shore
47 Blue Bay
57 Black Stream
You can check really nice swatches over at Color Me Loud. The other shades are not calling out to me.
I bought this at SGD $51. I don't think it is worth the price. I think the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks are better in formula.
