Kiko Makeup Milano Eyeshadow in 139 Pearly Salmon

The Kiko Eyeshadow in 139 Pearly Salmon is pretty much what it says on the tin. The peachy pink eyeshadow is jammed packed with shimmer and fine glitters. You get 0.1oz of product in a decent size compact. The lid is frosted clear plastic, allowing you to see the colour through the top but I would prefer the top to be flat to allow for stacking in my storage solution. If you don't have a stupid amount of eyeshadow singles, then the packaging would probably be perfect for you.

It claims to hold for 12 hours and be heavily pigmented. While I agree with the pigmented statements made by the company, I found that these lasted about 6 hours before creasing on me. I have "normal" lids, so shadows normally last pretty well on me, so if you have oily lids or find shadows crease easily on you, I would suggest using a primer to get these to stick. 

My only issue with this shadow sits with the shimmer in the shadow. Because the shimmer is more like glitter, there is some fall out and it can be quite chunky when you use it. I found that some of the other Kiko shadows I tried in store were smooth but this one, while it is gorgeous, is a bit more chunky and prone to falling out all over your cheeks. Tapping off the excess and using a sticky base helps, but I would suggest doing foundation/concealer after your eyeshadow look with this product. 
It is also now on sale for just £2.90 instead of the RRP of £4.90 online here  and they also have a ton of other colours in their sale. If you want to try these in store they now have a store on Regent Street and in Westfield Staford.
