The Jordana Eyeshadow Pencil is a great matte alternative in a creamy almond shade. It is easy to apply from the stick to your eye, but it does dry much faster than the Milani. I have to apply to one eye and blend before going to the next eye. I also don't apply this along my lower lashline because I find it gets into fine lines. I am thinking it's because it's matte so the formula is a bit more drying. It has a great lasting power because of that. This would be a great go-to if you like to have a neutral base before you apply shadows.
I love these neutral creamy shadow sticks! It's nice to have a matte and metallic option in my arsenal to help prep for shadows that will last all day.
Do you use eyeshadow bases?
