Budget Buy: Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow

Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow
I first discovered these on Instagram when I saw Lovely Girlie Bits posted that these are comparable to the ByTerry Black Star Ombre. In fact they even said the shade 05 was an exact dupe for Misty Rock (check out their post) so when I went to Barcelona last year I picked up 05 and 06 and more recently I picked up 38 and I thought it was about time I did a review on these.

Now I can't say if these are a ByTerry dupe because I don't own any of those (too expensive for my liking) but what I can say is these are an exceptionally good product. The product themselves are basically cream shadows in a stick form, they are super long lasting, very pigmented and easy to work with. Now I'm not sure about you but most mornings I find myself in a rush so these type of one sweep products are the only job and that's why I love these shadow sticks so much among other reasons.

The formula of these shadows are a creamy dream, you simply slide them across the lid and blend out with either your finger or a brush, I mainly use a brush so I can get a real smokey effect from them but with your finger is just as effective. They do dry rather quickly so I tend to do one eye at the time so I have time to work with it. Drying quickly is a good thing though as they set nicely and don't feel sticky or wet on the eye throughout the day. 

The shades I have are:
06: A golden brown shade, contains shimmer but not glitter, very pretty blended out to a golden smokey eye
38: Chocolate brown contains hardly any shimmer, easy to wear daily
05: A rosey gold bronze shade, very pretty and looks amazing build up and smoked out. 

The staying power of these are what sold it for me, they literally last all day without having to touch up and I have very oily lids and still get great results. Overall they are a great budget buy, they are pigmented, last all day,  great colour selection and you will get a lot of wear out of them. For €6.90 / £6.90 you cannot go wrong and I already have a feeling when I hit London in June I will be picking up more shades. 

Have you tried these? Do they interest you?
