My Obsession with Kiko Continues . . .


If you follow me on Instagram then you have probably seen a few photos of this beyond gorgeous cream shadow stick from Kiko. I was told that they are good dupes for the By Terry Ombre Blackstar shadow sticks, and though I have never used one, I would imagine that the quality is pretty comparable because of how amazing Kiko’s formula is.

This particular shade is 05, which is a taupe-brown with a hint of purple, and has very fine silver shimmer running throughout. The formula is creamy, but dries fairly quickly so you have to start blending right after you apply it to your lids. Even without an eyeshadow primer, this shadow lasts all day long without creasing or smudging.

For a really quick, pretty eye look, I will roughly draw the shadow all over my lids up to my crease, and then blend away with a Mac 217. To add a little definition I will apply a fine line of L’Oreal Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner to my upper lash line.

      I actually purchased products when I was in Italy this past fall. BUt – I’ve read that they are opening up stores in the US!
