KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in 01 - Less is Better

A couple months ago I stopped by a Kiko store and picked up a couple items, among them two new Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows and I'll be reviewing the shade 01 - Less is Better in this post.
I've been a fan of these creamy stick eyeshadows since I first tried one and have been reaching for them quite often. They come in a very convenient twist-up pencil style packaging and are perfect for sweeping some color on the lids or travelling, since they can be applied in a variety of ways on the eyes (as eyeliner, blended out for a soft wash of pigment or full on color). They contain 1,64 g of product and since the shade I picked up recently was part of their limited edition collection it comes in a sky blue packaging instead of the standard black (they also have a shade with the same number in their standard range called Pearly White, which is a little confusing).
The shade 01 - Less is Better is a peachy skin-tone nude shade with tiny shimmery flecks that aren't that noticeable once applied and blended onto the lids and also don't show up on the photos. The shade is really creamy and nicely pigmented and I've been using it instead of an eyeshadow primer, when I was without one, since it covers discoloration and veins on my lids really well and evens everything out, while also adding a tiny bit of sheen. I always go over and set it with some eyeshadow or at least some translucent powder and it generally stays in place between 6-8 hours on my oily lids. Applying it over an actual eyeshadow primer, on the other hand, makes it last all day. After application it stays creamy, so you have enough time to blend everything out, but once it sets it really stays in place (you can see how red my skin got on the swatches below after I tried to remove it with a makeup wipe).

These creamy stick eyeshadows are great quality, they are comparable to some other high-end ones I own (like the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colors) and come in a pretty wide shade range. They are available here online and at all KIKO stores around the world (you can find all locations on their website). A similar even more pigmented creamy matte eyeshadow that is more readily available in Slovenian drugstores is the Maybelline Color Tattoo Creamy Matte in 93 Creme de Nude.
Have you tried any of the KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows before or have any other shade recommendations?
