Smoky Look Eyeshadow #10 by KIKO | Yay or Nay?

Hello lovelies!

I wasn't planning to write about this but yesterday I got this item from KIKO as a gift and I thought it would be an interesting thing to review. The first time I saw this, it brought my attention and I had thought about buying it, but my best friend went to KIKO to buy something and she gave it to me as as a random present, which I appreciated because I didn't expect it!

This item is an eyeshadow presented as a crayon with an applicator to help you get the smokey look. I love the packaging and the concept, too! 

Here you have some swatches. It doesn't look very intense and it's very easy to apply.

I used this smoky eyeshadow as a substitute for my naked basics palette look. I used W.O.S., Naked 2, Faint and Venus. Instead of Crave, as I usually do to make it look like a subtle smokey eye look, I used this KIKO eyeshadow and this is the result.

Eyeshadows: WOS, Naked 2, Faint and Venus from the Naked Basics / Smoky Look Eyeshadow by KIKO.
Deliplus intense eyeliner.

Fyi: it looks kinda dirty because of the weird orange lighting my bathroom has but it actually looks quite subtle.

I like it. It's a nice substitute and it's not as intense as Crave. I blended it a little bit with the applicator instead of my brush. It's subtle and looks good. I'm looking forward to using it with more shimmery colours to make it look intense. 

Conclusion: The Smoky Look Eyeshadow #10 by KIKO is a YAY. I think it's very useful and it's an interesting item to have. 

Do you own any item like this? Would you buy it?

I hope you're all having a lovely day!

  1. Ooo! I love a good smudgy/sultry eyelook! I've been super curious about kiko bad I can't get any of their products in my country! :(

    1. No way! I have had KIKO in my city for around three-four years max to be honest but I'm starting to enjoy it NOW. So sad that you can't get KIKO though! :(

  2. Kiko is one of my favorite brands and i'm glad to see more and more posts about their products! Seems really interesting this particular one! xx

  3. I've tried a few products from Kiko before and have quite liked them all, their nail polishes are great too. The shadow stick/pen/something else you have there looks really sultry and nice, I think it could make quite a nice every day look!
