Product Review: Kiko Milano Glitter Eyeliner
Kiko Milano Glitter Eyeliner in the shade 01. Multicolour
Today It’s another product review & I’m going to review one of my favourite products of late.
And guess what??? This is an eyeliner.
Last month, I ran out of 3 of my favourite eyeliners & that too when Durgapuja was virtually knocking the door & I was officially freaking out, so I immediately bought a few to boost my collection & luckily while browsing the online store, this baby, the Kiko Milano Glitter Eyeliner caught my eyes.
To be true, I’ve never used glitter eyeliners before, so I waited for 48 hours (My usual trick before I actually buy anything especially when I’m not too sure about it to see if I feel the same about it after the ‘incubation period’ is over) before I finally clicked ‘add to cart’.
Before doing so, I did extensive online research (searched for reviews) but I wasn’t too sure because I didn’t find many reviews for I atleast read 3-4 reviews before buying things. Yes, I’m not the typical beauty blogger who would spend a lot of money in buying a whole lot of things where I wouldn’t be able to use one product more than twice. Seriously, I’m not criticizing those who love it but I’d only buy things that I seriously like & I would actually use in real life.
That is why reading reviews is important to me & I didn’t get much of a view, so when I finally bought it, I thought reviewing it would be the first thing I’d do.
First I’d discuss how it looks on your eyes, which is the most important thing to me & then the rest about packaging & all would follow:
The liner on its own looks beautiful & although it’s full of tiny glitter particles, it looks amazingly sophisticated & you don’t have to reserve this for parties only. Team this up with otherwise regular or nude makeup & it’ll instantly glamourize the whole look. It even goes well with red pout.
If you’re more on the playful side, wear it on top of your regular black liner & the magic will usher in. A black base for this eyeliner exactly expresses its beauty & it simply looks magical.
On the above photo, I’ve topped up Kiko Milano Gel Liner (the blackest black currently available in the market) with Kiko Gel Eyeliner in the shade multicolour & simply observe the magic.
You can also wear it on its own.
Here, the effect is very subtle. I had to wear atleast 5-6 coats to achieve this look while on top of another liner, 2-3 coats are sufficient to make your peepers pop.
So, when it comes to the first impression, the packaging is super cool, slick & easy to carry. It even fits in my tiniest clutch. It comes in a black paper tiny packet which contains the eyeliner bottle which is small as well containing 4.5 ml of the product. This is available in two shades: 1 Multicolour & 2 Silver of which I bought the former one, which is in the shade Multicolour.
I must say it’s beautiful & there can’t be a better word to describe its worth. It is basically a liquid eyeliner that is full of multi coloured glitters in a clear base. The applicator brush tip of the liner is very sharp & works really well & the liner also dries up quickly; so the application is hassle free.
You can wear it over other liners, like black liner or other coloured eyeliners as a ‘topcoat eyeliner’ or simply on its own which will give you a subtle vibe.
But the removal is super messy, especially if you had applied several coats because the glitters will go here & there, & you’ll find traces of glitter on your face even after 24 hours of removal (yes even if you’re a makeup-removal ninja). I tried the both ways: micellar water or coconut oil; the result is the same.
I have problematic eyes (they tend to dry) mostly because they’re large & so large that they don’t close completely when I sleep. So doctor asked me to stay away from products that get into the eyes because with a dry pair, they fail to clean up properly which may cause irritation sometimes.
Just like most products, a few of the glitter particles also accidently got into my eyes but thankfully no irritation was experienced. So that was a messy thing indeed & the only downside I experienced.
It also lasts long. Mine was manufactured on 9/2017 & then was imported on 9/2018 & will expire not before 9/2020. So it’s real cool.
Now let’s sort out the pros & cons of Kiko Milano Glitter Eyeliner:
· Extremely affordable at Rs. 790/-
· Slick, beautiful packaging.
· Looks beautiful on application as both on its own & as a top coat on other eyeliners. A really unique product.
· Comes with a brush that’s easy to work with.
· Lasts real long, about 3 years from the date of manufacture.
· Staying power is mediocre, it’ll start scattering in 3-4 hours.
· Very messy removal process. The glitters get here & there & are extremely hard to remove.
· Poor colour payoff on its own, you’ll need to apply 3-4 coats to make it detectable if you’re using it alone, on its own.
Will I repurchase it?
Yes I will. Infact despite of the cons mentioned above or the fact that I get bored easily, I’m seriously in love with this product & the unique look it lends. I’d not only buy the same shade again but also I want to seriously try the shade 2. in Silver. So yes, I’ll definitely buy this again.
I do not officially endorse the brand but here I’m sharing the fun experience I had with a product I love.
