Kiko has several types of shadow sticks, often as limited editions. But these Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows are in the regular lineup. 🙂
The tip looks like this, small and round. The color I have here is 07 Golden Beige, a great basic color.
This is the swatch of Golden Beige in the shade.
And here the color shows its true beauty, in direct sunlight.
Golden Beige is as the name suggests a soft, warm light gold. I like that it’s shimmery, but not sparkly.
It glides on effortlessly, is easy to blend – only until it sets though! It’s best to apply shadow on one eye, blend, and then move on to the other. And when the shadow has set, it is indeed very long lasting. I wear it on its own, without primer, and it does last the promised eight hours. Of course, with a color like this, you also won’t see creasing that much. Yet I’m pretty sure there was no creasing, and even in very hot weather it only started to fade after eight hours.
Apart from using it alone, it is also a great base for powder shadow looks. I think it’s a good substitute for the Lancome stick Lisa Eldridge uses in this video, for example.
