MY THOUGHTS !
Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows are one of the very few shadow sticks that I like. Normally I love the idea behind the shadow sticks but most of the shadow sticks are just “meh”. A while back I reviewed Clinique Chubby Sticks and I mentioned while I love the shades and I’ll use them, they’re not worth the price. And the more I use the more I realize since they’re so chubby it’s kind hard to get the precision that I want sometimes. Those are great for one swipe and go type of thing, but if you want the shade to be precise then you have to use a brush, but then what’s the point of having a shadow stick ? anyhow ! There’re are high-end brands that do this “stick shadow” thing RIGHT ! but obviously they’re expensive. Kiko has got it just right, from the formula of “KIKO LONG LASTING STICK EYESHADOW” to the packaging, I love everything about these shadows. I don’t think drugstore has quite nailed this Stick eyeshadow concept down yet.
If you follow me on my Instagram account you must have seen these shadow sticks in action. These are not too chubby to take away from the precision and not too thin to break when you apply pressure. No sharpner reuired, these are retractable shadow sticks and I love that ! The consistency is just perfect, creamy but not too creamy to move around on the lids. Once it’s set ! It’s set. It doesn’t crease. Can be totally used on it’s own and works perfectly as eyeshadow base.
Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows are quick, easy to use and portable. They’ve 32 shades to offer, which is wide variety to choose from. There’s a shade for everyone from the warm tones to cool tones, from neutrals to pop of vibrant colors. The packaging feels secure. The cap clicks ! I hate when products have wobbly caps. Like what am I suppose to do with that ? Stick shadows are basically created and are famous for their easy application and portability, but if the cap comes off, it’s a mess ! I love the fact that it CLICKS ! and feels secure.
Three shades that I have are #05 Rosey Brown, #37 Burgundy, and #20 Black. For more kiko eyeshadows, check out my post I did a while a go, when I hauled these eyeshadow sticks and more, (Fall eyeshadow Galore- Kiko Haul) + There’s a video on my facebook page and instagram using the shadow stick, if you want to see it in action !
#05 Rosey Brown
Overall I absolutely love these Kiko long lasting stick shadows.
How to use Kiko Long Lasting Stick Shadows
To anyone who’s new to makeup or to stick shadow concept, it can be confusing. The application of these stick shadows/any stick shadow, is the same. Oftentimes people apply too much or too little and then it creases. Don’t apply a thick layer. Just enough to cover the desired area and then dab it and blend the edges with the finger tips or the brush, whatever is easy for you. Works fine either way. Once it sets, it ain’t going anywhere.
I hope you find this post helpful.
