My Experience With L.A.Colors All-In-One Makeup Stick Pink Satin:
Packaging: L.A.Colors All-In-One Makeup Stick comes in a silver chubby stick form with a transparent cap. The cap enables you to see the color of the pencil and thus the packaging isn't much of a hassle. It is sturdy and travel-friendly as well. Moreover, the pencil has a retractable body and can be twisted to open. Thus, there is no need for sharpening and confirms that there will be no product wastage as well.
Shade: The shade 'Pink Satin' is a frosty purple-pink color. It is extremely light and best suitable for pale skin tones. For my warm skin tone, it is slightly a mismatched kind of a shade. It has fine shimmers that reflect the right amount of light and there are no chunky glitters as well. The color has the tendency to wash out warm and deeper skin tones. The purple tone is best visible under sunlight. Personally, the color is slightly difficult for me to pull off.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is not very impressive. The first swipe deposits only a little amount of product and to build up the color, you really have to swipe again and again. However, even then, the pigmentation is hardly any good and gives a very sheer wash of color. It may be good enough for a blush, but for eyeshadow and lips, it is not sufficient enough at all. For beginners, the pigmentation works fine as they can control the usage, but for others, it won't be satisfactory at all.
Application: The product claims that it can be used as eyeshadow, lip color, and blush. As an eyeshadow, I find it very sheer. Plus, the shimmer isn't good enough as well. So, I seldom use it to highlight the brow bone for a complete purple or pink look. For the lips, it is as good as a tinted lip balm, but on the drier side. Therefore, you can slather the product and have to apply a lip gloss on top. That's the only way I work with the product for lips. As a blush, it works fine. It has sheer pigmentation and allows to control the color. Also, it is frosty and gives an illuminating effect.
Texture: The texture is smooth but not creamy. It glides well, though takes a lot of effort sometimes. As a blush, you can slide it well underneath a primer. The same goes for the lips but it does accentuate fine lines if it is worn alone. You need a lip balm or gloss on top. On the eyes, it is really difficult to glide. It has mineral oil but it hardly gives any smoothness to the product.
Staying Power: The product, as a blush, stays for around 4 hours in this winter time. On the brow bone, it stays for around 5 hours or so and as a lip tint, mere 2-3 hours. It is easy to remove and comes off quickly without much effort at all.

The product has its pros and cons and given the $1 tag, you can't expect miracles. For beginners, it is a nice one to experience.
