I accidentally bought KIKO Water Eyeshadow. Once in Paris, it was impossible to ignore the Kiko stores that I came across at every turn. They were everywhere and for good reason.
Firstly, Kiko is a budget cosmetics brand, and secondly, it has a rich assortment, among which you can find decent specimens. And KIKO Water Eyeshadow is one of those.
Thanks to their unusual embossing, the shadows attract attention and do not get lost against the background of the rest of Kiko’s shadows.
Perhaps not everyone is aware that the KIKO brand has shadows in several series:
- Infinity eyeshadow
- Color sphere eyeshadow
- Infinity + Sparkle Eyeshadow
- Water eyeshadows
Feature of the Water Eyeshadows line in texture: half cream (melting), half mousse (gliding). It is she who allows you to apply shadows both wet and dry. In any case, they will look amazing …

Depending on the method of application, you will get different results:
- a flat brush will help you achieve a dense, saturated color
- a fluffy brush will “give off” a soft satin shade
- applying eyeshadow with your fingers will achieve the most vivid and highly pigmented color
I showed the first two methods in one of the step-by-step tutorials on the blog.
As you can see, the shadows look very decent for their modest price., and their behavior only pleases. True, you can’t do without a base for the eyeshadow from Urban Decay or any other. She will be responsible for the durability of your eye makeup. Without it, I do not risk “wearing” a single shadow.
Unfortunately, KIKO Water Eyeshadow has a minus – the dependence of quality on color.
Not all shades are flawless in behavior. I saw this at the testing stage in the store. Therefore, I recommend that you be careful when choosing a color and pay attention to what the shade becomes when shading – whether it loses its intensity or retains the pigment. Then the chances of being satisfied with the purchase increase significantly!
