Kiko Milano Long lasting eyeshadow stick

Hello folks!

I have always wanted to try the Laura Mercier caviar sticks, but somehow that purchase keeps getting pushed to the back burner. One of the reasons being my doubts on if I’ll actually use it enough. Cream products always land up in the back of my drawer since I kind of skim over them when hurrying out the door. The Kiko Milano long lasting eyeshadow sticks are touted as being dupes for the Laura Mercier ones, so when I got a chance to visit a Kiko store I decided to try one out. And not surprisingly (like a lot of the Kiko stuff I’ve tried) I am in love!

The kiko ones are more cost effective compared to the Laura Mercier ones especially if they have a sale going on. I don’t remember how much I paid but it was below the 10$ mark for sure!

I picked up the shade 38 which is lovely taupe with specks of gold shimmer. It reminds a little of the Blink 1982 shadow from The Balm Jovi Palette by The Balm.

The shadow sticks applies beautifully. No tugging no nonsense..just the perfect creamy glide over the lids. The shadow is super pigmented too and lives up to the 8 hour no transfer claims. I have used it with and without primer and it does not budge or crease.

I find myself using the shadow stick for a quick eye look before dashing out of the door. These can also be used as bases for other eyeshadows and can be blended within the first 30 seconds or so after application. They set and become budge proof after that!

Overall, I highly recommend the Kiko Milano eyeshadow sticks! They have the perfect price tag, are pigmented, long lasting and also very travel friendly. I plan to pick up a few more shades. Do you have any shade recommendations?

Until next time, ciao !!!
