KIKO Milano have once again teamed with designer Ross Lovegrove to bring us their Autumn 2016 limited edition collection, entitled Neo Noir; and of course, the packaging consists of stunning black compacts for the star products in the collection and bursts of dark colours for the other products.

Sparkling Trail Eyeshadow 03, 04, 06 ~ €6.90 for 1.8g of product
These three shades caught my eyes instantly and the format is what convinced me to get them as they can be used as an eyeliner or as eyeshadows. The formula is very creamy and easily blendable but I do recommend you set them with a matching powder eyeshadow or translucent powder to ensure they don't budge or fade. They can go on patchy at first but the colour can be built up to a nice consistency with just a few strokes.
03 Sensual Burgundy - deep burgundy red
04 Feminine Emerald - shimmery emerald green with turquoise undertones
06 Rose Anthracite - charcoal grey with rose shimmer
Graphic Gaze Double Eye Marker ~ €8.90 for 1.5ml of product
This is a very cool product in my opinion and I really like the concept of it all but to be honest, I'm not entirely happy with it as the 'ink', apart from not being very black, it fades away easily and bleeds even with a primer. However, for those still curious to try it out for graphic eye looks, what you get is a double ended eyeliner pen with spheres instead of the usual pointy felt tip to help create unusual eyeliner looks.
The KIKO Neo Noir collection is currently available on the KIKO Cosmetics website.
