I’m having great fun trying out all of the products I got in my recent France haul here. I’ve never tried Kiko before so was excited to give their products a whirl. I expected to like the Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow as they come so highly recommended by beauty bloggers but I am actually wowed by the Water Eyeshadow!
These shadows are very pretty sculpted pans of colour designed to be used either wet or dry on lids. I swatched these in the shop and liked them but the lighting in the shop was a little poor so I couldn’t get a good look. When I tried this out at home I fell in love with it. The texture of the shadow is almost creamy and applies very much opaque with one swipe. You can use this with a wet applicator for an even more intense finish as you can see below. I love this burgundy shade for something a bit different on the eyes it’s a nice change to my regular neutrals. This has a slight shimmer to it but isn’t glittery – my pet peeve.
Having tried both the Water eyeshadow and Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows I think I might nearly prefer this. The texture is gorgeous and it applies and lasts really well. I like the Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows but I find I can feel the product on my eyelids which puts me off a bit. These eyeshadows are good value as well, costing €8.90 each. Kiko do 27 shades of these and I just wish I had picked up one or two more. You can order online from Ireland at Kiko.com and I think delivery costs €5.95. Let me know if you have any products you love from Kiko.
