Hi Babes,

If you follow me on Instagram, you know how excited I got when I placed my first order with Kiko Milano 🙂 I shopped quite a few bits but I was looking forward to use this eyeshadow most..and that’s only because of its colour!

I get inclined towards neutrals and earthy tones. Khaki shade is rare in many brands so when I saw this, I had to buy it. I know this shade suits my dusky skin tone because I have used a Bourjois mini shadow palette (Perfect harmony Petit guide de style- 11 Miss spirit) and this was my most used shade. That palette is discontinued I think but I will share a picture .

So back to this eyeshadow, The packaging is top-notch and looks like a luxury product. Its a thick plastic that looks like a glass pot and has a metallic gunmetal shade screw on lid.

The colour is ’05 Charming sage’. Its a moss green shade and complements all medium skin tones. These eyeshadows are available in 6 shades and only this one stood out to me.

The formula is creamy powder and once applied sets like a powder. Its long lasting shadow and I have worn it for about 6 hours and it stayed. However, due to my oily lids it creased after 4 hours or so.

The swatch looks beautiful but when blended it doesn’t look as pigmented as it looks in the pot or swatch. I like to use it with a gel/creme base similar to this shade so the colour can stand out a bit. You can even use a gold base underneath. I use it with my Illamasqua vintage metallix in Galaxy most of the times. It helps this shade look a bit intense but more metallic 🙂

I bought this in the sales at £3.40 from here .

Overall rating 3.9/5 That’s entirely on texture and shade (if you can pack it on or use a similar base underneath)

Hope this would have helped 🙂

Let me know if you have tried Kiko products before? If yes, what are your favourites? If not, would you give it a go?

Loads of love, Akanksha (Ash) ♥♥♥
