If any of you remember my Toxic Glow Goth look you’ll remember me using the the metallic grey colour I used (Anthracite), I’d only spotted Kiko Cosmetics at Westfield a few weeks earlier and Anthracite and Golden Beige were the first two I tried and the first ones that got me hooked on Kiko cosmetics.
“Once set, the colour remains uniform and radiant for up to 8 hours, without streaking or smudging”
Since then I’ve collected a few more of their shadow sticks, hoping to use them quite a bit over the next few tutorials so it’s about time I reviewed them.
I absolutely love using these as a base to apply other colours on top, when you layer eyeshadow over eyeshadow sometimes you really have to pile it on. But when I use these as a base after primer what ever I apply on top just pops like crazy.
- 20 shades
All of them (or at least the ones I’ve tried) are all highly pigmented and creamy, Violet is slightly less thick than the others, Black is an ever so slightly drier consistency and Anthracite is very thick, to the point where you can get small lumps when applying it. The easy way to fix this is just blending it out with a blending blush.
Under warmer lighting you also get these lovely yellow and light blue flecks of colour that under cooler light you don’t pick up. The Kiko website is actually one of those rare companies that actually have accurate swatches, my lens can’t quite pick up all the lovely little flecks of colour these have in them, so if you want a more accurate idea you you can check out the website.
I really need to lean how to make gifs, I would love to be able to show how these look when you hold them under warmer light.
