KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in 07 - Golden Beige

Today I'm sharing another review for the KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows. These have been one of my favourite cream shadows, because they offer a nice selection of shades (although I tend to stay in the neutral zone), they're well pigmented and long-lasting on the eyes.

KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in 07 - Golden Beige comes in a pencil style packaging and contains 1,64 g of product. To get the product out you simply twist the packaging a little, so there's no sharpening and losing product. The formula is described as long lasting and transfer proof and from my experience these perform just as well as the pricier Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colours, but are slightly less pigmented once you blend them out on the eyes. These eyeshadows have a creamy, smooth formula that glides on the lids without tugging and are in general easy to apply and blend.
The shade 07 - Golden Beige is a stunning metallic champagne gold that catches the light in a beautiful way. Applied lightly it blends out into a light shimmery veil, but can also be built up for a more impactful look. It's borderline too metallic and sparkly for everyday wear, so I tend to apply it in thin layers, but add a bit more in the inner corner. Unlike the other shades from KIKO I've tried in the past this one doesn't perform as well on the eyes. My lids have a noticeable fold, so I've been using some eyeshadow formulas with mixed results, even applied over a trusty primer base. Unless I set this eyeshadow, it tends to crease on me after about 2-3 hours and can also look a bit patchy if I'm not careful with layering and don't leave it to completely set (1-2 minutes). I'm thinking that the shimmer content in this one isn't as forgiving of a formula for me and the eyeshadow also feels softer and creamier than the other ones I already own (but that could also just be the fact that it's new). It also looks a lot more intense on the eyes  in real life than my camera could capture in the photos below, making it the perfect choice for glam holiday or special occasion looks. It also applies as a lighter shade on my lids than it looks in the swatches.

Applied to the eyes (metallic vs. more subtle look):
Overall the KIKO Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in 07 - Golden Beige is a stunning shade and although the formula requires a bit more work, I really love wearing it and it's proven to be a nice addition to my collection of eyeshadows.

  1. Krasna barva je! Čeprav nisem navajena na tak nanos, bi se za takšno barvo potrudila ;)

    1. Nanos je res enostaven ker so ta KIKO senčila tako kremna, zaradi embalaže pa so tudi zelo priročna, tako da kar poskusi, ko boš imela priliko :)
