I love wearing eyeshadows when there is an event or family function. Generally I prefer warm toned shades as they are fool proof and go with most of my outfits. This time while I was exploring Kiko Delhi Store, I came across this display that had these beautiful singles lined. Kiko Water Eyeshadows instantly caught my attention and I couldn’t stop myself from picking one.
Revolutionary eyeshadow with instant colour release and dual wet and dry use. Mixture of groundbreaking spherical powders for an outstanding colour effect bringing together extreme coverage, pure luminosity, and long-lasting colour. Soft, creamy texture for colour with remarkable purity. Easy to blend and offers immediate release of perfectly even colour. Enriched with moisturizing, smoothing ingredients, Water Eyeshadow remains light and comfortable.
Packaging is really chic. The Kiko Water eyeshadow comes in a matte square case with a mirror. It is sturdy and pretty both.
Shade – No 204 is a pretty plum. In the pictures it looks slightly red but in reality it isn’t. The shade is really beautiful and perfect for quick daytime smokey eyes with no efforts. I would love to pick more shades, probably another dark shade since I quite liked it on me. You can see the true color in the makeup look (last pic)
Texture & Formula – As per the brand Water eyeshadow can be used both wet and dry. You can increase the color intensity by spraying some water on the brush. I have however used it dry this time. Texture is so fine and smooth , even when there is substantial amount of shimmer present in the formula. I really like how it has shimmers but it doesn’t look too shimmery, has a beautiful metallic finish.
Application & blending is easy-breezy. I can see some fall outs, but nothing much.
Pigmentation – Superb ! The eyeshadow is very pigmented. Even if you apply it without a primer, the color would still show up in full intensity.
Staying Power – On me with a base it stayed on for 8+ hours ! I was so impressed since the formula neither smudged nor faded till that time ! .
Kiko Water Eyeshadow 204 is priced at Rs 1050 for 3g available at Kiko Milano Store Delhi
I am so in love with the texture, blendability & smoothness of Kiko Water Eyeshadow 204. The shade is beautiful plum which should look good on all skintones, especially medium deeper complexion. I am surely picking more shades soon. Only downside is the price which is a bit too steep for an eyeshadow single.
