KIKO eyeshadow #174 - lovely taupe :) Review, swatches & makeup

Hello :)

I've recently purchased this KIKO eyeshadow #174 in Westfield Stratford store and I've decided to do a short review and makeup with it. It's a warm taupe colour with pearl finish but it's not too shiny.

It is nice size eyeshadow (3g) for £3. The pigmentation is very good and it didn't crease on me for whole 7 hours I had them on. Well I generally don't have problem with creasing as I have dry skin so I cannot guarantee that it won't crease on oily skin. It blended nicely and I will definitely try to pick few more shades (it will be hard though because they have looooots of shades!).

Eyeshadow comes in black box with hole so you can see the shade, something like MAC box only bigger.  The packaging is shiny black case with transparent lid and each eyeshadow has embossed word KIKO in it. I like this little detail.


And I did a quick makeup with this eyeshadow...nothing crazy, just nice day makeup :) For this look I've used Too Faced Shadow Insurance, MUA Shade 1 (champagne pearl) , KIKO 174 and a bit of MAC Carbon. As eyeliner I've used MAC Blacktrack.
