Almay intense i-color

I am so in love right now with all this make up that is designed for your specific eye color.  I am starting to see that all the different drugstore brands are starting to make it.  I also am finding that since they are suppose to make your eye color stand out more and pop that alot of them for blue eyes-like myself-are the same brown and gold colors!  I still buy it anyway :o/  Can't help myself!  So this is called Almay intense i-color shadow stick. 
This product was around $7.00  It is a duel ended stick with both a darker color and highlighting color designed to intensify your eye color.  It is "crease proof" which I can say for the most part seems to be.  I wore mine for hours with very little creasing.
The first one of these I bought, one of the ends was broken when I opened the package, so I am going to try to go back and return it.  When I purchased it again (elsewhere) I just held it upside down to see if either of the colors wiggled around in the case to make sure they weren't broken.  Just a tip. 
I went and checked out the website for this product and found a little video on how to apply it which is nice.  It turns out to be pretty common sense though.  You apply the dark brown (for blue eyes) on your eyelid and the gold color on your brow bone.  I actually found a picture on their sight of the product on a blue eye and used that instead to try to copy.  That is why I applied the gold under my eye as well, and I really liked the effect.
I think it is pretty easy to blend the product and easy to apply.  It goes on creamy almost but once it's dry feels like normal eyeshadow. This was the first time using it and I really like how it came out.  If I can do it-it's pretty much fool proof. :) 

You can also build the product up for more intensity if you want to, making the colors darker and more intense.  The above pic I went for a little darker, and below pic shows a little lighter.
 Like I said, I really like these products designed for specific eye color.  It gives you prefectly matched shades that are complimentary for your eyes.
 The green and hazel eye shadow sticks have really pretty colors, but I stuck with blue since I knew the effect would be best.
Have you tried any of these "eye color specific" products?  Have a great weekend! Thanks for reading :)
