Meet my latest colorful obsession: The Kiko Milano Water Eyeshadows. I had always heard about the Italian brand, but hadn’t tried anything of theirs until my first trip to their new store in Los Angeles. I was surprised at how awesome the products were and their relatively affordable price point. My favorite out of all the products I tried, though, were these eyeshadows.
These single eyeshadows are worth all the trouble of well, using single eyeshadows. They’re incredibly pigmented, silky and blendable, and basically everything you want in a shimmer shadow. The gag is, you can use them both wet and dry for slightly different finishes. I surprisingly like using them wet best, which gives a more opaque, somewhat metallic finish. Using dry is just as gorgeous though, with more of the shimmer shining through.
The shades I picked up (in order of above) are 204, 228, 213, and 230. They’re all incredibly rich with very strong color payoff that lasts all day. Whether I wear them wet or dry, I don’t experience fading or creasing at all when worn over primer. I suggest using a patting motion to build up the product while applying, which will give you the most even coverage for a day’s worth of color.

Above is one of my favorite looks I’ve created with the shadows, using 213 on the lid and a very very light hand of 204 above my crease.
The Kiko Milano Water Eyeshadows are $14 and are available in their own stores and online. If you want to purchase online, though, be sure to sign up for Ebates first, which will give you cash back on your purchase!
