Review: Etude House Bling Bling Eyestick No. 9 “Gold Tail Star”

I’m not wearing eyeshadow often, simply because I’m too lazy in the morning to spend to much time on it. That’s also the reason I like eyeshadow sticks and pencils a lot. They are easily and quick to use and you can add some glow to your eyes and it makes you look more awake. Etude House’s Bling Bling Eyesticks are an example for easily to use eyeshadow sticks. They are available in 6 different colors. I bought this stick in a shade called “Gold Tail Star” at

The packaging is compared to Etude House’s normally very girly packaging not really special. The color of it is simply black, with the name of the stick written on it. It has a simple cap, to protect the stick and it works via twisting mechanism, so you can wind up the eyeshadow stick. At the bottom of the stick you can see which color you are using.

“Gold Tail Star” is a golden shimmery eye shadow color. I love using it under my eyes, but it looks good on the eyelids, too, giving a soft spark. It is super easy to use in both ways. It glides smoothly on the skin, but since the skin around the eyes is extra sensitive, don’t scrub it too hard over it :)

I like this eyestick, because it is very easy to use and it has a travel friendly size (it’s shorter than most pens and pencils are). It is also really affordable in my eyes, although the prices seem to vary a bit (I bought mine at Keautystore because I’ve earned some credit there by writing reviews, so I paid actually almost nothing for it). You should have a look at ebay, too, if you are interested in buying these. The only downside of these eyeshadow sticks are, that they are not smudgeproof. If you have oily lids I would recommend you to use a eyeshadow primer in order to extend the wearability and prevent creasing. I don’t have oily lids myself, but even I am totally surprised what a difference wearing an eyeshadow base can make (I’m using a cheap drugstore eyeshadowbase, so it doesn’t have to be something high end to do the difference).

  1. I was wondering if these are the same formula as the bling in the sea shadows, but it must be different if it’s not smudgeproof. They seem to stick around a long time though, since as far as I can remember on Etude House =)

    thanks for giving all price comparisons!

    1. Yes, I think Etude House is having these for a long time now. I thought they’ll have the same consistency like the bling in the sea sticks aswell. But they don’t. But I read somewhere that these are more opaque than the bling in the sea? I don’t own the other one, so I cannot compare honestly XD
      Thanks for reading and commenting ♥

    1. The good point about these sticks is, that you can get them for a cheap price :) And even if you don’t like them too much, it won’t be a great waste of money. :D

    1. I was thinking about buying the pinkish color first, but then I changed my mind. Hope you’ll do the review for it sometime. Perhaps I’ll add the pink one, too XD Thanks for commenting ♥

  2. The color is so pretty and I love how small the pencil is *A* I would love to buy this eyeshadow stick to in #3 pink ivory *-* I heard so much good stuff about it ^__^ Thanks for the review ~ :D
