I discovered KIKO when I visited Italy but the stores where always overcrowded and wasting my time trying to shop was a holiday no-no.Recently we found a more quiet store in Germany so I decided to give them a try.I asked you on Instagram about your favorite KIKO products and I bought most of them minus the blushes and the lipsticks as I own way too many.
First of all you recommended the Long lasting Twist Eyeshadows so I did a good research and they seem to be Laura Mercier and Βy Terry dupes so I had to buy them.I chose the shades that suit me more and they are actually their best sellers.I bought the shades Rosy Brown no05,Golden Brown no06 and no38 Golden taupe.Their formula is amazing, they glide on smoothly and you have plenty of time to blend them before they dry.When they dry they stay in place all day and they are very comfortable on my lids.The shades are beautiful, they compliment my eye colour but they have a little bit extra shimmer for my taste that comes through more when you blend them.If you like a sparkling finish then go for it but I am a satin or matte eyeshadow fan so I prefer using them more as an eyeliner.They cost 7E each and for a drugstore product their quality and their packaging is great.
Then you recommended the Water Eyeshadows so I bought the shade that catched my eye, the no200 Champagne.It’s a lovely light golden beige with lots of shimmer and I like it for the inner eye corner.The texture is buttery,the pigment is great and you can apply it wet or dry.I will definitely buy more shades like the coppery and burgundy.I love this one!
Last but not least the Extra Sculpt Volume Mascara which was a must buy in every message of yours.It has an interesting wand which offers a voluminous effect and it actually works.The formula is bit heavy though so I don’t know if it’s suitable for girls with straighter lashes than mine,maybe the waterproof one will hold the curl better.Also it became flaky and dry after a few hours so I think that it didn’t suit me well.It’s a best seller thought so it might work for you.It costs 9E.
