REVIEW & SWATCHES || KIKO Long-Lasting Stick Eyeshadows


Spoiler Alert: these have to be some of my favourite eye products, perhaps ever...These stick eyeshadows cost just £6.90 each and a huge array of colours (including all the ones below) can be purchased here. They've been compared to By Terry, Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown...but to be honest having tried these I can't imagine how a £20+ product could be that much better.


They're so creamy, which means you have a decent amount of blending time but once they 'set' they don't budge all day (and trust me, I've had some pretty long days wearing these...) I think the only negative of this product is that they're so creamy a couple of my most-loved shades have come loose from the base of the packaging, which is annoying. But I guess it's a hazard of the product, as with sheer/lustre lipsticks. 

There are also so many ways to wear these; you can wear them across the lid and blended out, on your upper lash line or your lower lash line. Personally I find that putting black eyeliner all the way around my eyes makes them look smaller so I love using these underneath instead. 
I love how they make it look as though you made wayyy more effort than you did. For me they're perfect for work days; they look lovely on their own, blended out with my finger or if I have time even popping 2 different eyeshadow shades on top looks like it took much longer than 30 seconds! 



My favourite shades have to be Golden Chocolate and Golden Taupe. I think they're the most unique and although Golden Taupe is really glittery I still really like it and don't feel as though it looks too much. I think the shade names are very true to what the colours are like in reality. I have to say I don't use Golden Beige that much as I find it too light and super-glittery to be that wearable.

One of my favourite shades is Golden Taupe so here it is first on it's own and then with two eyeshadow shades applied on top (from the W7 Lightly Toasted Palette*)!





These are an amazing, adaptable, affordable product and they're perfect if you're always on the go! I'd recommend these to any beauty-lover; even if you've never really got into cream eyeshadow. Since I bought mine my mum has gone and got about 6 of them as well because they are just so lovely! Whether you like a smokey eye or something a bit more neutral, you'll love at least one of the shades in this line.

  4. These look gorgeous jasmine! I really love the look of Golden Taupe, as I tend to be rather fond of cool toned colour over warm toned.

  8. I've wanted to try these for such a long time now. Golden Beige looks like such a pretty shade, definitely something I'd get a lot of use from. I really wish Kiko was sold more widely in the UK. x

  20. I have the burgundy one of these and I absolutely love it! They are so easy to use, I love putting it all over the eye with a warm matte brown in the crease. Kicking myself that I didn't get more of these but will definitely pick some up in the future - the colour range is brilliant. Great post as always m'dear! :)
