Review: KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow

Now that the summer is finally here to stay, wearing eyeshadow can be a tricky business. 
With the sweltering heat, the only option is wearing a really long lasting eyeshadow that won't crease and will last you all day (and night!) These KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows are the most comfortable ones I've ever tried, and there's a great variety of really beautiful colours! 

A very pigmented, creamy texture that doesn't require more than a dab to show the full-on colour you can achieve. After some minutes it sets and doesn't move, so be sure to blend your eyeshadow shortly after applying it!

L to R: #05 Rosy Brown, #39 Dark Taupe

There are 33 shades to choose from, ranging from dark blues to golds. I bought these two shades:
  • #39 Dark Taupe - this dark brown is not too warm and is ideal to create the perfect smokey eye without the need of any other product! It has a satiny finish and looks almost matte.
  • #05 Rosy Brown - this is an amazing shade, quite sheeny and metallic. The name suits it perfectly, and can look amazing for day looks on itself and with some eyeliner for night (it also looks amazing with #39) Unlike #39, it contains glitter.

L to R: #05 Rosy Brown, #39 Dark Taupe

The problem is, once you pick one, you need more and more!
I am eyeing up these: #06 Golden Brown, #11 Teal, #31 Iris Blue... (okay, I need them all!)

They come in a sleek black matte tube, and the eyeshadow twists up (= no product waste!) 

Final thoughts:
This product is definitely a 10/10 in my opinion. You should go right now to your nearest KIKO counter and check these out (and thank me later!) 

Have you tried these or would you like to? What do you think about them?
