Kiko Cosmetics Color-Up Eyeshadow Pencil in 24 Majestic Dove Grey and 10 Bold Rosy Taupe

Ah, Kiko.  Their inexpensive products often perform way beyond their price points, and these new Color-Up Eyeshadow Pencils definitely, definitely impress.  The ten shades are all deep, moody, slightly colour-nuanced versions of greys and taupes, making for a wonderful autumn eye look which isn't too dark, but still perfectly suits the season/

I've been using 24 Majestic Dove Grey and 10 Bold Rosy Taupe for the past few weeks and I'm thoroughly impressed - they go on creamy, blend easily, and set down to a finish which doesn't budge when applied over primer.  The pointy shape means you can easily use them around the whole eye, too, and I've been impressed to see them last a whole day (and an evening of sweaty laser tag) without fading.

I don't think they're actually all that different from Kiko's Long Lasting Eyeshadow stick texture-wise - it's just the packaging and shade range which is different.  Either way, if you're looking for a quick and easy, highly portable autumn eye product, this is it - no brushes required, just the stick and your fingers.  And at just £7.90 each, you can treat yourself to a couple of shades.  Find them now at the Kiko website, or one of the many stores in London.

  1. I usually don't like taupe shades, but that one is gorgeous!

  2. Hi! I just bought the nr.24 and i'm in love!!!!!!

  3. Hi
    I also loved it so much. But unfortunately is was limited edition, so they can't be found in any stores any longer :-( I was in several stores in Italy this summer.
    I have bought one of the sticks, and i don't think they are as good as this one. It doesn't last a hole day, it blobs during the day.
