KIKO Dark Heroine Collection | Twinkle Eye Pencil, Smoky Look Eyeshadow
When I went to a KIKO store for the first time ever, the product that got my attention in first place was a beautiful moss green eye pencil! My love started to grow and to be honest, I hate to spend a lot of money on just an eye pencil. I have some expensive ones (Chanel, THREE) but well, the colours were beautiful *cough* and with those Twinkle Eye Pencils I don’t need any other, more expensive liner anymore *dances* because they are phenomenal! The only downside, they are limited edition and only come in six shades.
Twinkle Eye Pencil
They glide on like butter, stay on a whole day without moving (not even the shimmers) and are pigmented (in my swatches I used one swipe only!). I hope they are going to make those liners permanent and release more colours. They can be used as an eyeshadow base as well, because they are so smooth and not drying at all.
03 Flexuous Burgundy is a deep blackish plummy colour with subtle shimmer
04 Bewitched Periwinkle is glamorous pale blue with mermaid and silver coloured shimmer
06 Hypnotic Starry Black is black but due to the silver and green sparkles it has an almost shimmery metallic hue
Smoky Look Eyeshadow
They feel kind of waxy and velvety and are not comparable to the well-known Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows (any brand). The pigmentation is medium, they are not the most pigmented but not sheer as well. I used three layers for my swatch. It lasts all day on me and won’t collect in my lid fold as well. This shade is a great base for all kind of smoky eyes, which I love by the way. I have worn it on its own with just black liner and lots of mascara and I was good to go. I have to play with it a bit more but the shimmery colours from the KIKO Dark Heroine Palettes look nice just swatched over this Smoky Look Eyeshadow, can’t wait to try some smoky fall looks!
05 Harmonic Wine is a blackish purple shade with very tiny burgundy sparkles, only visible in direct sunlight.
There is only one post left from my KIKO Dark Heroine swatch episodes. Stay tuned and if you are not tempted yet, maybe the post tomorrow is going to blow your mind? But it is hard to top the stand out palette 04 Rain Smoky Shades! You may also like KIKO’s Colour Impact Eyeshadow Palette 01 Lounge Warm Tones.
