KIKO Custom Eye Shadow Quad + two sneaky EOTD's

Just like MAC and Inglot, KIKO have brought out empty refillable eye shadow palettes that are available to purchase separately. What I like about them is that they are available in threes, fours, nines and twenty fours. So whether you're a make-up artist on a photoshoot or just going away for a holiday, there's a palette for every kind of make-up addict. I also like how their palettes are sturdy and nice looking as opposed to those with transparent lids. I personally feel these look more sophisticated and grown up.

Inside you can choose to put KIKO's Infinity Eye Shadows or Infinity+ Sparkle Eye Shadows. I believe these are their latest formulations and are simply ingenious! So they are not super sparkly or in your face pigmented but trust me when I say, they have NO fallout whatsoever. I recently used a few of these to do make-up for a friend's wedding and they were so much better compared to Sleek and Urban Decay shadows that caused a lot of fallout.

These are buildable and moderately pigmented, with a smooth satin like finish to them. I adore them as they are easy to wear on a daily basis without thinking twice. If you're heavy handed and not very neat when it comes to eye shadow application, try these out as they are almost foolproof. Isn't the shade variety in my palette so very autumnal? Such lovely maroons, dull khakis, blackened blues and a shimmery pink to jazz things up.

This shimmery pink in particular has a very interesting texture. It's almost like loose shimmery pigments have been packed into an eyeshadow. So when you swipe it with your finger, it's a nice film of iridescent, finely milled shimmer particles. My favourite way to use them is on the centre of the lids for dimension and the inner corners to brighten and lighten.

My KIKO custom eyeshadow quad in action!

This particular empty palette to house 4 eyeshadows retails for a mere £4.90! The eye shadow refills are £5.90 and £7.50 depending on whether they are Infinity or Infinity+ Sparkle.

It's the most cost effective way to make yourself a new eye shadow palette for Autumn/Winter peeps.

Below is when I used KIKO's Infinity Eye Shadows in greyish black and hot pink to do eye make-up for a friends occasion. Not sure of the colour names but they were amazing with no fallout and great longevity!

I didn't got one of this yet because I have two palettes with this system to finish (one from Inglot and another from Urban Decay).

Depending on the Shadows I would maybe get a 4 insert palette.

Please take care, have a nice day!*

I went into the one in Westfields a couple of weeks ago but the queue was huge, like going out of the shop. ARGH!
