My First Venture Into Eyeshadow Sticks

Until recently I had never tried a cream eyeshadow stick, tending to play it safe by sticking to basic powder formulas. While I love a good eye shadow palette, I'm so happy I finally got my hands on these KIKO eyeshadow sticks. 

I have two shades from the range, colours 05 and 06 both of which are equally as creamy and pigmented. At first I was a little worried they would be
overly glittery, but blended out these shadows leave a really nice shimmer on the lid.

I tend to pick these shadows over my much loved palettes when I'm in a rush or don't want to spend time on my eye make up. Swiped across the lid and blended out with a finger, I love to use these to create a simple smokey eye. 

I'm really impressed with KIKO so far, after trying these shadows and a few other bits I ordered online a few months back. While I haven't tried the BY TERRY Ombre Blackstar, I imagine these are a good alternative for those like me who aren't quite willing to give into the rather high BY TERRY price tag!
