Welcome to a new type of post! I have ventured into making YouTube videos and this is the first one in which I am actually speaking to the camera! Oh my was that weird! I apologize if I’m doing it all wrong, I would love your feedback on the video!
Let’s get to the content though! Kiko Milano released a whole new line of re-formulated primers and I was conveniently out of primers, so I jumped at the opportunity to try them out. I picked up the Matte Face Base, the Neutral Eye Base and the Nude Blur Lip Base and decided to try them out in a first impressions get ready with me video on my YouTube Channel. Check out the video below and subscribe to the Channel if you want to see more videos!
The Infinity eyeshadows are meant to be used together with the Clic Palettes to make and easy and highly customizable system. However, a bit like the Ikea concept, only the Kiko shadows fit in the palettes and viceversa, the eyeshadow pans are not magnetized and they are not suited to be stored in any other palette.
Taking advantages of other discounts earlier in the year I ordered 9 Infinity eyeshadows and a 24 pan palette. There are about 90 colors to choose from and multiple finishes from matte to satin and the Infinity+ glittery shadows.
The idea of customizable palettes is a great one but unfortunately the formula of these shadows was not a great hit. The quality of the Kiko Infinity eyeshadows is not consistent through the finishes and colours. Some are nicely pigmented like the 207 Mat Papaya and 230 Satin Carmine, and others take more building up to reach full color. The most disappointing of the shades I have are 205 Golden Coral, 248 Starry Jarcanda an the Infinity+ 402 Chocolate. It took a good 4 swipes to get a good swatch and even though the colors are gorgeous, they don’t show up on the eyes like this at all.
So in conclusion I would suggest you stop by a physical shop to swatch the individual pans since it is difficult to predict the performance. However, since they are on offer for 1.90€, there are three more in my shopping cart on the Kiko Milano website. I hope the new shadows have been re-formulated as well as re-packaged to have better quality over all the range of colors.

The color choice is really broad and the line ranges between highlighting colors to dark browns and a black going through all the colors you can think of: blues, greens, purples (check the range of colors here) I have four neutral shades that I can wear everyday for a natural look or in the evening for a smokey eye.
Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows:
Happy Monday beauties! In my giveaway (which is still running for a few days here) I asked you what you wanted to see more of on the blog and lots of you said hauls! So here’s the damage I did while in Madrid for a work trip. Some of my favorite makeup brands are not sold in The Netherlands and I take advantage every time I can to visit the shops and pick up some goodies.

So here is my madness at Kiko, which was a great bargain, I think it was all only 40 euros.
Do you know Kiko Cosmetics? What are your favorite products from them?
|Swatches: 1: KIKO Skinny Fit Kajal 02, 2. Skinny Fit Kajal 03,
3. Tropical Waterproof eyeliner in 03, 4.Colour Shock Long Lasting Cream Eye Shadow in 107,
5. Long lasting Stick Eyeshadow in 04.
First are the super long KIKO Skinny Fit Kajal in 02 Glam Sea Green and 03 Progressive Turquoise (4.80€ here). These pencils are supposed to be used in the waterline, but since nothing stays put there with me and it just makes me cry (true story), I just use them as eyeliners on my upper and lower lash line. They are both super pigmented and buttery, so they don’t tug on the eye when applying it so all in all love them!
For the next product I had a bit of a mishap with the choice of colour. I got the Colour Shock Long Lasting Cream Eyeshadow in 107 Inspiration Emerald (5.50€ here). Honestly I thought it was a lighter shade from the website but anyways, this is a gorgeous dark teal cream eyeshadow that feels like a mousse to the touch but once it’s on it sets super fast and stays put, seriously forever! It is beautiful alone and as a base for the powder eye shadows.

Last for the eyes another great waterproof product are their Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows (6.90€ here). For this product I chose to pick the neutral 04 Golden Brown and stray from my green/blue obsession in favor of something I can wear everyday. In fact these sticks are perfect for a quick swipe of color on the lid, a bit of blending with your fingers and you’re good to go!

Finally over to nails, my new obsessions are:
|KIKO Nail Laquer in Mint Milk|
So that’s it for my obsession for green and blues and the new products from KIKO which fuel my craze and make me very happy!
What is your favorite product from KIKO? Something I should try?

They are also incredibly pigmented, the swatches you see were the results of one swipe dry, but you can use these eyeshadows also wet by spraying your brush with any face mist or water. This will give you even more intense color payoff and longer lasting power!
