These little ones have been lying in my drawer for some weeks now so it is more than time to take them out and show them to you. The KIKO Sparkling Trail eyeshadows are part of the Neo Noir Limited Edition summer collection. I selected the 03 Sensual Burgundy and 05 Power Blue, two pencils with a completely different intensity.
KIKO Neo Noir Limited Edition
I always look forward to KIKO’s limited editions. Their campaigns have a way of drawing me in, each and every time. And true, some I find better than others BUT I have never been disappointed. There is always something I want to try out. This summer I fell instantly in love with the Power Blue Sparkling Trail eyeshadow. Gosh! It looks amazing on the ads! I couldn’t stop oooh-ing and aaah-ing every time I saw it. And here it is! Can’t wait to try it out!
After a successful collaboration last year (remember the Wanderlust collection?), KIKO yet again asked the help of designer Ross Lovegrove to create the packaging of this year’s summer collection Neo Noir. The designer with a love for futuristic and practically designed products once again created a unique and exquisite collection.
KIKO Sparkling Trail Eyeshadow
The KIKO Sparkling Trail eyeshadow comes as an extendable pencil with pointy tip. Its casing is very minimalistic and has the same color as the shade of eyeshadow with a metallic-silver colored top and bottom. The texture of the eyeshadow felt very creamy when I tried it on, slid easily over my eyelids and the color payoff is just amazing. For a short while, the color is blendable before it dries to a fixed layer. Removing it from my eyes was a bit more tricky, especially the blue, but have you ever heard someone complain about an eyeshadow that stayed in place too long? 🙂
The 05 Power Blue is absolutely incredible with its fierce blue metallic shade and tiny sparkles. It totally wowed me! The daring and powerful color brought out my eyes and you can be sure: people will notice you!
The 03 Sensual Burgundy is a more sedate, less sparkly color with a metallic finish. With its reddish brown color I feel I can wear it on every occasion. The intensity of the color is totally different from the blue but its soothing shade is ideal for an autumn look.
Look at the blue on this swatch! How exquisite is this? Can you imagine it on your eyelids? Using a brush when applying the eyeshadow on your eyes isn’t really necessary but I blended it out a bit so it didn’t just cut off. A primer is also a good idea. The texture is nice and creamy but it does have a downside: I got a very noticeable crease when trying on the burgundy shade. I so wanted to take pictures for you guys to see the looks I tried but in all honesty, I felt unsure about my skills to pull off a bold look like this. Maybe in a few months time, after I have had more practice I will surprise you on Instagram 😉 (Have you heard? I am starting a new makeup course soon? Yay! More on it soon!)
I love these KIKO Sparkling Trail eyeshadow! With their metallic finish and pencil format these two stunning colors stand out between my other eyeshadows. The Power Blue is an absolute favorite of mine! It’s so unique and gorgeous. Would you dare to wear it?
