Full disclosure: I'm a bit of a loyalist when it comes to my beauty products. Convincing me to try something new is nearly impossible; I like what I like. The foundation, blush, and brow pencil in my makeup bag set up camp years ago, and they aren't leaving anytime soon. So when I heard rave reviews about a new cream eyeshadow . . . I had questions. Is it long-lasting? Will it complement the powder eyeshadow I've come to know and love? Can a makeup amateur easily apply it? After giving the By Terry Ombre Blackstar Color Fix Cream Eyeshadow a try, this skeptic can easily confirm the answer to all of those questions: A resounding "yes!"

It's a simple and subtle cream eyeshadow stick that completely refreshed my makeup routine. A hint of shimmer around my eyes added a warm richness to my face that I haven't been able to achieve with any other eyeshadow. While it can be worn over the entire lid, I prefer smudging just a tad in the inner corners of my eyes in one effortless glide of the pen, and then finishing off the look with my tried-and-true powered eyeshadow on the outer portion of my lids. Highly pigmented and easily blendable, this product can readily transition from day to night. The velvety and iridescent effect of the "Blond Opal" shade naturally enhances my dark brown eyes. But don't fret if you have baby blues, this cream shadow comes in 9 different color options to perfectly complement any eye color.

Needless to say, this makeup newbie has quickly taken its rightful place alongside the other holy grail products in my beauty bag. Now that my eyes look wider and brighter than ever, I've decided to start trying new things more often. Who's with me?!
