Everyone knows that I have an undying love for Kiko's Long Lasting Eyeshadow sticks and I do have quite a collection, so I wanted to show what shades I own. The Kiko Long Lasting Eyeshadow Sticks are very long lasting as the name suggests, with build-able colour depending the depth you prefer your eyeshadows to be.
The Kiko eyeshadow sticks set quite fast, so you need to work with them quickly if you are wanting to blend it with another stick eyeshadow or powder eyeshadow. One of the factors I love about the eyeshadow sticks are they don't crease even on my oily eyelids - but then I do always prime my eyes. And as mentioned before the longevity of these are incredible- they do not budge until I use a oil remover at the end of the day. These eyeshadows stick can also be used as a base to create a more intense look. I currently have 10 shades and always use an eyeshadow brush to apply for precise application and to prevent the product getting on my fingers.
Starting with my pinky, red and brown tones - these all have a slight shimmer.
07 - Golden Beige - this reminds me of a champagne shade, this is used as a inner eye corner highlight to brighten your eyes, it has a stronger shimmer/glitter compared to the rest of the shades.
21 - Passion Fruit - this a peachy pink shade - it doesn't suit my complexion too well when used alone but is beautiful when you want a gradient look, it has a strong gold shimmer and is cool toned. This will look different depending on your skin tone.
35 - Pearly Calypso Rose - this colour reminds me of candyfloss, it is a cool toned pink with slight silver shimmer. I haven't been reaching for this much, but it's going to be a staple colour in the summer.
37 - Burgundy - a deep red with brown undertone, this almost look metallic due to the sheen that it creates. this doesn't have much shimmer but has a satin finish.
06 - Golden Brown - my most used colour, this shade has a metallic finish with slight silver shimmer, it is a beautiful everyday colour and looks amazing as a crease colour for other eyeshadows.
These 5 are your greens, purple and blue shades.
40 - Clover Green - a vibrant grass green shade, which almost looks neon, this is used more as a base shade.
10 - Emerald Green - this looks like a teal- an in-between greeny blue, it has a metallic sheen and is one of my favourite shades and contains slight silver shimmer.
42 - Lavender - a shade that I keep thinking why I picked it up - this is cool toned pastel lilac. This looks matte due to the pastel tone.
31 - Iris Blue - another pastel shade, this is a blue with a lilac undertone, it is similar to Lavender in terms of matte effect.
44 - Ocean Blue - this is used as a base shade to create a wearable smoky blue, it is a vibrant electric blue and looks matte.
That is all for the swatches, the Kiko Long Lasting Eyeshadow sticks are known as a dupe for the By Terry Ombre Black Star and Laura Mercier's Caviar Stick for the fraction of the price. These are £6.90 each, I am quite happy with my collection right now until I decided to experiment with more colours. I hope your enjoyed this post.
