I usually don't buy much from Kiko Milano. I mean, I do, but I keep to their permanent range because I hate it when a brand releases a collection for two months and then I can't find the product I've fallen in love with. Still, when I saw and tried the Sicilian Notes products a few weeks ago, I thought the quality was so outstanding that I had to get all my favorite products before they were gone for good !

This collection is quite large, with a lot of liquid eyeshadows, liquid lipsticks, a primer, a highlighter, nail polishes and so on - one of the biggest collections from Kiko I've seen so far - and I was once a Kiko Milano retail artist !

I indulged in all of the Longlasting Duo Eyeshadows and three of their Liquid Lip Colours that I'll show you here tomorrow - although you can also watch the very first video I've released today on the It's Azami channel to see the swatches if you absolutely can't wait (and you shouldn't !) !

Those Longlasting Duo Eyeshadows are probably one of the very best products I've encountered in the brand and this year to be honest - one side is metallic, one is matte and there are 6 options to choose from. They're numbered from 01 to 06 and only number 05 is not completely matte as you'll see the khaki color is slightly metallic.

That khaki is actually the first color I bought, just to try it and when I saw what great quality it was, I waited for the paycheck to come in and got the five remaining shades.
The applicator is classic doe foot and it's easy to apply the product with it but I prefer patting some on the back of my hand and use my finger to blend the edges especially with the matte ones before either going about with my day or using that matte base as a primer - as they don't budge an inch once set.
Only the format could be an issue once I come near the end since I wouldn't be able to scrape all the product (I do prefer the Danessa Myricks Color Fix format for instance - toothpaste kinda packaging) but I doubt it's ever going to be a real issue since I never finish a product.

One of my actual first thoughts when buying them was that I could use the matte ones as a base for more smoky looks or just to intensify light shimmery powder shades to use as eyeshadow on top and I'm happy I got them for photoshoots on me and models too. They retail for €10 each and boy - they're absolutely worth every penny.

The mere thought that I can use both finishes on my lips as well - even if Kiko never did advertise those products to be used that way makes me even happier because I've come to a point where I've got so many products that any new thing I get has to have the possibility to be used in several ways. And on the lips, they're super comfy too ! x
