Kiko Cream Crush Eyeshadow – 05 Pearly Silver Rose

Hi Everyone!

Today I have a review for you, for something that became a saving grace. I bought this little Kiko Cream Eyeshadow during my last stint in London, it was discounted and the colour just screamed out to me!

I had always wanted to try some of the Kiko cosmetics range, having tried some of their nail polishes before. This little pot of cream eyeshadow is ’05 Pearly Silver Rose’, which is a beautiful irridescent silver/gold.

This is a long lasting cream eyeshadow which is meant to be super blendable, (auto correct wants this to say bendable lol) with up to 10 hours staying power.

The texture of this shadow really is silky soft – it feels velvety in the pot but when you start to apply it to the lid (without primer, may I add) it starts to set to a powder. I think if you plan to blend this I would get that blending brush at the ready pretty sharpish as you have a small window of opportunity before this sets!

The colour pay off is brilliant, you can see how sheeny and pigmented the shadow is and it only cost £3.40!

I am amazed by the quality of this cream eyeshadow and I can say it did actually stay put all night! I used this with a matte black shadow in the crease and then I patted this over the inner third of my eyelid.

The only thing I’m not keen on (and ALL beauty brands are guilty of this) is that when you get these little pots of shadows they have a blown up bottom (as in the glass makes it look like you’re getting more product than you are). In actual fact, you’re getting a whopping SIX ML

Wow, generous!

Lol 🙂

Have you tried any Kiko cosmetics?

Thanks for reading guys 🙂

My Newest Obsession – Nyx Lip Cremes

Hey Everyone!

I have been wanting to try these for SUCH a long time and now I finally have them I am totally fan girling about them! So, the products I’ve been wanting to try for about a billion years are the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams. Lip CREAMS sound a bit weird don’t they, but if you are truly a beauty fan you will already know what these are.

I’ve heard so many bloggers and Youtubers raving about these and I can see why. Unfortunately, I now want the entire range but I was good and settled for two shades. I ordered them from Boots on Click and Collect last Saturday afternoon and picked them up from my local Boots on Sunday after midday (this is not a sponsored post I was just really impressed!).

The two shades I bought were ‘Transylvania’ (the dark one) and ‘Antwerp’. The one I think I was most excited about was Transylvania, because it is a VERY dark, almost black purple. It’s quite goth-y but I love it. I was so excited about it I filmed a Youtube tutorial with it a few hours after swatching it (if you’d like to see that then click the link below!)

Here is a swatch of ‘Transylvania’ on my hand!

The formula of these is great, it is VERY opaque, creamy and velvety – but it gives you just enough time to clean up around your lip line with a cotton bud to clean up any mishaps!

I love how dramatic this shade is and I hope to use this some more in the Winter!

The second shade I bought was ‘Antwerp’ which is a very bright coral-ly pink colour.

Here it is swatched on my hand! Really close too:

I haven’t actually put this on yet but I’m hoping it suits me! This is quite a bright pink so I’m thinking this should look nice really with a thin layer AND  thicker layer applied.

I’m so impressed with the formula of these and I can’t wait to use them more day to day.

Have you tried any of these? What shades am I missing out on? :’)

Thanks for reading guys,
