KIKO Cosmetics Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in 06 Golden Brown, 36 Malva Dorato, 38 Tortora Dorato


I bought these KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows based on a recommendation from Leanne, and I'm very glad I did.  I usually stay away from stick or cream eyeshadows, unless they're pretty much guaranteed to stay put in the face of my very oily lids - and despite the creaminess in these little sticks, they're pretty decent.  Granted, I do still need primer, but for colours as pretty and sparkly as this, that's a price I'm willing to pay.

The format is pretty simple - creamy stick eyeshadows in a twist-up, black plastic case.  They glide onto the skin, remaining blendable for a few minutes before setting down solidly.  Woe betide you if you've not blended the edges before they set!

I went for three neutral tones (all of which go well with a red or berry lip, my favourite for winter).  36 Malva Dorato is a gloriously golden rose shade, which looks pretty and polished and still shimmery.  38 Tortora Dorato is a netural taupe-brown with golden shimmer, and 06 Golden Brown is a highly metallic golden brown which makes for a very striking eye with a slick of black liner and plenty of mascara.

Overall, I'm very impressed with these little sticks - particularly given that they cost a mere £6.90 each.  The colour range runs from sparkling neutrals like this to brights, including some particularly punchy blues.  Find them at the KIKO online shop.

Disclosure:  Bought as part of a mega-haul, paid for partly with a PR-supplied gift card, and partly with my credit card.  Because clearly I don't know when to stop spending.  Oh well.
