Kiko Clic Palette System + Infinity Eyeshadows

Thursday, March 12, 2015
Kiko has been a favourite brand of mine since I discovered them about five years ago while on holiday in Taormina, Sicily - I spent over €40 on kiko makeup and I do believe that the price have gone up very slightly but the products are still inexpensive especially for the quality. I wanted to try their clic system for a while and all of the shades were on sale so I thought it was the right time to make my own palette. 

The Clic System features numerous sizes of palettes which you can choose from including singles, duos, trios, quads then the 9 pan palettes and a massive 24 pan palette - I was so tempted to get the massive palette especially as the palettes and eyeshadows were 40-52% off. I chose the 9 pan palette and obviously 9 eyeshadows for it which was about £26! 

The eyeshadows come individually packaged, they have the shade name on the box and on the back of the eyeshadow - there are two stickers on the back so you can keep one on the eyeshadow pan and then the other can be place onto the inside lid of the palette if you want. The eyeshadows are so easy to remove from their packaging and clicked into place in the palette. 

I picked all natural, neutral shades as those are the ones I use daily and I am so happy with them. The shades are mostly matte, with a few satins and shimmers and the pigmentation is just fantastic. The texture is so buttery smooth with minimal fall out; they also blend so beautifully. They crease on my deep set eyes after almost three hours (with no primer) and my skin as unusually oily the first time I tried them too. I will have to test them fully with my primers.
Here are all of the shades I bought with swatches so hopefully you can see the pigmentation and shades - as the palette is black, my camera has washed out the swatches a bit especially for the lighter shades. 

200: Pure white with micro shimmer - slightly chalky 
236: Metallic slightly bronze champagne - almost wet looking
238: Cool grey (micro shimmer isn't visible on the skin)
215: Warm chocolate brown with golden shimmer - very pigmented
240: Matte cool medium brown with purple undertones 
217: Rich warm matte medium brown - very pigmented, slight fall down
235: Matte burgundy brown 
288: Matte cool toned concrete grey 
295: Matte black - very pigmented 

My favourite shades are 200, 236, 240 and 295 which blend perfectly together. The 217 and 235 shades when swatched are quite similar but when used on the eyes, they are different. I definitely want to get the bigger palette and buy some more lighter shades. My only negative point about this palette/system is the size of the palette itself - it is quite chunky (2cm thick) and fingerprints show up very easily. This competition is open to the general public; for more information follow this link: www.justmylook.co.uk/blog/2015/02/get-featured-on-justmylook-as-blogger-of-the-month/. Overall rating: ★, 5/5.

Have you purchased any Kiko eyeshadows? What do you think of the shades I chose for my palette?

  6. I always see people talking about this brand but I've never actually tried anything from them. They do seem pretty affordable when you think about it, that price for nine shadows is great! x

  15. I love when you can purchase individual shadows in just their pans. Are they magnetic by the way?

    1. They aren't magnetic, they click into place - they come in their pans and you could apply your own magnets to the back and put them in a Z palette although they might be a little too thick x

  16. I like KiKo a lot, their eyeshadows are buttery and easy to blend. The downside is they don't name them. The numbers aren't as much fun as a cute name would be.

  17. I was eyeing up these eyeshadows a few days ago and I loved the formula and the shade selection but just can't buy any more eyeshadow palettes at the moment as I have so many to use. Kiko are such a great brand though x
