The Kiko Milano Intense Colour Long Lasting Eyeliner comes packed inside a black sleek card box with all the product information printed over it. The liner is in pencil form with a sponge attached to the base of the pencil for blending. The pencil tip is covered with colored long cap while the sponge is covered with a transparent long cap. The packaging is very convenient and travel friendly.
Creamy in texture, the liner is easy and smooth to apply. But be careful, the creamy texture can also lead to unexpected breaking or smudging of the pencil tip, so it’s always better to keep a sharpener nearby, for optimal use.
This liner comes in sixteen colors: 1 Pearly White, 2 Pearly Gold, 3 Pearly Bronze, 4 Pearly Brown, 5 Metallic Purple, 6 Mat Ebony, 7 Metallic Light Green, 8 Metallic Emerald, 9 Metallic Malachite, 10 Metallic Ivy Green, 11 Metallic Blue Teal, 12 Metallic Turquoise, 13 Pearly Violet, 14 Metallic Blue, 15 Metallic Night Blue and 16 Black.
11 Metallic Blue Teal, the color is true to its promise, intense and fully pigmented.
The number 11 Metallic Blue Teal, KIKO Color Intense, Long Lasting Eyeliner is a teal blue eyeliner that has a metallic tint to it. It has a little shine to it before blending, but nothing too glossy.
The color gets deposited in single application. You can layer it too, if you’re looking for a darker and broader line, although no more than two layers are needed for the color to be perfect.
The eye pencil glides on smoothly. The brand says that the product is waterproof, and it is! Due to the pencil’s quick dry formula, once applied, you have about three minutes to use the sponge in order to blend it. After that, the pencil will have dried and will stay on for the whole day.
If you have watery eyes, you might have to check yourself out in the mirror from time to time, to make sure the product is still in place. Even though it is waterproof, repeated touching of the eyes and occasional tears, might mean a quick line might need to be reapplied after a few hours, to ensure your look stays fresh.
The best way to remove it after a night out, is to use an oily eye makeup remover, to facilitate things and avoid forcing it and irritating the eye.
Apply to the outside of the eye and blend with the built-in pencil applicator or eyebrow brush.
This eyeliner retails at 10$ in Lebanon. This is a good price, compared with similar products from equivalent brands like NYX’s Slide On pencil, or Maybelline’s ‘Lasting Drama’ waterproof pencil, the pricing is very competitive.
