A New Obsession For Lazy Make Up Days (or when I’m just in a rush)

Hey Peeps,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! So today I’m back with another review! Yay! If you happen to follow me on Instagram and/or Twitter ( which you obviously totally should haha) you might know that I recently went on a little shopping trip to Kiko and picked up a highlighter, a lipstick and two eyeshadow products. Okay, so I’m obsessed with all of them but today I want to focus on the eye make up as I’ve been honestly using it almost every single day and I’m just obsessed! Like seriously obsessed!

Okay, the first product I picked up was the Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow. Originally, I wanted a different shade but it was sold out so I thought I’d play it save and go for a color I’d love anyway and I ended up purchasing the shade 06, which is the most stunning bronzed shade. It reminds me a lot of Maybelline’s infamous color tattoo in On and On Bronze or whatever it’s called. I always find myself going for taupes and bronzed shades because I love how they emphasize my blue eyes. Anyway.. basically this is a creamy eyeshadow in a stick form. You twist the bottom and the product comes out at the top. Very simple! This product promises that it doesn’t transfer and lasts 8 hours! Now that sure sounds good to me! Firstly I haven’t had any issues with this product transferring or smudging and it really does last long! I haven’t checked if it’s actually 8 hours but I usually put this on in the morning and when I come back home at around 4 or 5 it’s still looking good, so what more could I want?

I love doing my make up! It’s one of my favorite things to do (don’t judge!) and I love playing around with loads of products but then again I also love sleep and my bed. So to be totally honest, on most days when I have to get up early my bed wins over make up and I’d rather stay cuddled up in bed for 5 more minutes than worry about my eye make up. This product is amazing for days like these! Basically what I do is use the other eye shadow which I will come to in a second and apply this over my lid and then I go in with this and I will apply it halfway along my eye lid, within my crease and I’m done! Okay, I usually will use a light shimmery shade to highlight my brow bone but then I’ll be done! Takes me 2 minutes. I’ll put on some mascara and I’m good to go.

Okay, so let’s move on two eyeshadow number 2 which is called the Kiko Eyetech Look Eyeshadow. Mine is in the shade 117, which is this gorgeous shimmery greyish bronzy taupe shade. (I suck at describing colors. I know) I absolutely love applying this just all over my eye lid because it’s such a nice neutral shade that pretty much goes with anything. This product comes with a sponge applicator and basically you screw off the bottom and then you find the product kind of in the lid of the product. Okay, this probably makes no sense but I hope you get what I mean from the pictures.

This eyeshadow is more of a really finely milled powder and it’s fairly shimmery but I really like this at it is not too over the top and perfect for a neutral every day look in my eyes. Kiko promises that it lasts up to 10 hours. Again I will apply this in the morning around 7.30ish and when I get home after university seminars and lectures my eye make up is still intact and looking good. Sometimes the color has faded a bit but nothing major.

In conclusion I love love love these two products on days I’m either in a rush or just can’t leave my bed! They’re so easy to apply and they last! They don’t move around or smudge and they’re really affordable! I know I will be paying my local Kiko store another visit soon picking up more shades!
