Hello beautiful ladies,
I am super crazy about eye makeup and always lookout for new eye shadows. There are so many options when it comes to buying eye shadows in terms of color, texture, brands, finish, etc. When I decided to buy eyeshadows from Kiko, I thought why not try from the different variants that they have to offer. So, I ended up buying a few of different texture and types from Kiko.
Packaging: This eyeshadow comes in a small round pan which has a lid to it. The pan is packed into a plastic tray which secures it firmly and the tray is packed in a cardboard carton. One can either use the pan along with its lid or remove the lid and put the pan in magnetic empty palettes available separately with Kiko. The ingredients are mentioned on the back of the cardboard carton and the shade number is written on the top. The shade number is also mentioned at the bottom of the eye shadow pan. Although the name is mentioned on the website, it is nowhere to be seen on the eyeshadow pot or the carton.

My Experience with Kiko Infinity+ Sparkle Eyeshadow – 408 Turquoise:
#408 is very true to its color. It is an absolute gorgeous turquoise color with lots and lots of silver sparkle. It has a shimmery finish. The eyeshadow is not at all chalky and has an amazing smooth finish to it. The texture is very soft and smooth. Although there are shimmer particles in the eyeshadow, they are in no way gritty or rough. They are very fine and easily visible. It adds a sudden spark to the eyelids and looks super awesome when a similar matte shade is applied as a base. It is easily blendable and the shimmer particles look evenly distributed on the eyelids.
The pigmentation is good and what you see here in the swatches is just a single application and the color can be built up to a darker and more intense glittery shade. The staying power is good. Although Kiko claims it to be 12 hours, I have not worn it for that long. But yes, it did stay on me for like 6-7 hours. I used an eyeshadow base and the color looked more intense than applying it directly on the lid.
Also, I did not notice any glitter or shimmer fallout. Also, it does not seem to crease on oily lids, but yes, it does wash off on oily lids much sooner if an oil absorbent base or primer is not used. The shimmer particles stay and the color fades away on oily lids. It does not seem waterproof and can be easily removed with water.
#408 turquoise is an absolute adorable color for night-out and parties but will look a bit flashy in day time but one should not keep any rules and if you feel confident enough to pull it off in day time then it will look awesome.
