Have you tried Mally's Evercolor Shadow Sticks? I recently acquired four shades from two or three Mally kits I purchased from QVC. I tested them out and really like these, making me want to buy more.

Mally's Evercolor Shadow Sticks PRO's & CON's:

Basic Stats for Mally's Evercolor Shadow Sticks:
Formula: creamy stick shadow
Wear: above average
Coverage: nicely pigmented
Shade Info: Currently available in 17 shades
Cost/Availability: $25.00 (0.06 oz full size). for one, or $35.00 for two, or $50 for three. Available on Mally's website and QVC's website.
Packaging: white rounded tube with pull-off cap and twist-up color stick
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Kisses


Formula:
These creamy shadow sticks are one of the best shadow sticks I've used. They glide on with ease thanks to a special silicone system, and then the color seals itself to last until you're ready to take it off. Use these shadow sticks as an all over eyeshadow, as a smudgy liner, or with other shadows.

Wear:
Above average wear. These shadow sticks last a very long time on me, even without a shadow primer. I didn't see any information on if these are waterproof or not, but I think they'll stand up to some water exposure (such as if you were walking in the rain or went on a water ride) but I don't know if they'd last through swimming. I guess I'll have to test these out this summer when I do more Amusement Park-Proof Testing!

Coverage:
Very nicely pigmented. Of course you can build the coverage up or make it more sheer depending on your application method.

Shade Info:
Currently available in 17 shades. I have four shades, all of which were acquired through Mally kits I purchased on QVC. Out of the four I own I probably wear the shade Firework the most. Other shades that I would love to try are Champagne, Gunmetal, and possibly Saddle Shimmer.

Cost/Availability:

Mally Evercolor Shadow Sticks Review:
I'm not a huge fan of shadow sticks because they can be difficult to apply and blend, however, Mally's shadow sticks are fantastic! They make me a fan of shadow sticks once again because they have a wonderful, creamy formula that applies smooth and even across your eye lids. They are easy to work with, so you can use them all over the lid, with other shadows, or as a smudgy liner.

Once they set, they don't move! They're very long lasting on me, even without a shadow primer. Of course using a shadow primer won't hurt, so if you prefer to use one then go for it.

I really like all four shades I own, although Taupe and Twilight are very similar. Twilight is just a tad darker. That's why I swatched those two shades next to each other on my hand, because unless they are right next to each other it's a little hard to tell them apart. On my eyelids they look near identical, but I prefer the Taupe shade.

The shade Firework is the one I've been using the most, just because it's a quick and easy way for me to get a wash of pretty color. The shade compliments my skintone well and makes my eyes look bright and awake.

Out of all the shades swatched on my hand, Purple Rain is my favorite, but it's probably the only shade I haven't used. I think it's gorgeous purple, even prettier in person, but for some reason I just haven't made use of it. I know I will eventually.

Overall, yes, I do recommend these. They are another fantastic product from Mally's line.
