KIKO Long Lasting Eyeshadow Stick

Kiko Long Lasting Eyeshadow in 04 Golden Chocolate Review

We should appreciate the person who came up with an eyeshadow stick idea! They are lazy girls’ best friends; they are so easy to apply if you are in hurry. There are so many on the market, some are really good and some are really disappointing. How about KIKO Long Lasting Eyeshadow?

Ela’s KIKO Long Lasting Eyeshadow Stick Review

KIKO Long Lasting Eyeshadow was the first product I’ve tried from KIKO. I hardly knew anything about the brand and this eyeshadow stick except the reviews I read online. I never had the best luck with cream eyeshadows, so it was a tricky decision to order it, but I am glad that I did!

KIKO Long Lasting Eyeshadow in 04 Golden Chocolate is a warm chocolate brown with golden gold sparkles or I can even say gold glitters. These shimmers/glitters change the brown colour into a something really pretty, when the sun hits your face you see them shining. This shade is ideal for brown smoky eye makeup, I also apply it on my bottom lash line, it really looks pretty! I like neutral/brown shades on my eye makeup, so if you are the same then I am sure you will like it too.

I was never a fan of cream eyeshadows before, because of having oily eyelids. If you have oily eyelids too then you will know the struggle of finding a cream eyeshadow, which will actually last on your eyes without creasing or fading away. After trying KIKO Long Lasting Eyeshadow, I start to believe that there are really good cream eyeshadows for people with oily eyelids too. They are supposed to last up to 8 hours, which is really good! This eyeshadow actually stays on for hours without creasing and budging. Isn’t it great?

The formula of these eyeshadows is really impressive; it is soft, creamy and pigmented. Whether you use your fingers or a fluffy blending brush, they are easy to apply and really blendable. Depending on how intense you want your eye makeup, you can just build it up easily, but you have to be quick at applying/blending it, it sets so fast that you won’t be able to budge it afterwards!

The packaging is a good one too. It comes in a black sleek packaging and the colour of the eyeshadow is shown on the back of the stick. All you need to do is twist it up and apply it, then you are ready to go!

Kiko Long Lasting Eyeshadow in 04 Golden Chocolate Review and swatch

They are said to be the dupes of By Terry Ombre Black Star Eyeshadows (texture and colour wise), however, since I haven’t tried By Terry ones (I’m not sure if I would want to pay £29 for an eyeshadow stick) I can’t say anything about it. After a few Google searches, I can confirm that they almost look the same, so a good job KIKO!

It is on sale now and it is more than half the price, if I were you I wouldn’t miss that chance and grab a few shades on the KIKO website! These cream eyeshadow sticks have one of the best quality and I am really amazed with the end result. 37 Burgundy, 39 Dark taupe or maybe other shades, there are many different shades and they all look so pretty!

Have you tried any KIKO Long Lasting Eyeshadow? If so, which colour is your favourite?

  • This sounds really nice to use and looks like a lovely colour. Gemma xx

  • This is such a pretty colour – might actually try a couple of these! 🙂 x

    Melanie | Lilies Beauty

    • You should definitely try them out, they are really good:) x

  • These are great! I think 05 Rosy Brown and 06 Golden Brown are very pretty shades for neutral lovers, too! Whenever I’m in a hurry, I apply 06 (which is the one that looks best on me, I think) all over the mobile lid straight from the stick and then blend it out in the crease with a fluffy brush. I also apply some on the lower lashline and it all takes me about a minute.
    They do last all day on me (even more than 8 hours on top of primer), but, despite having oily skin, I don’t have oily lids, so most eyeshadows last well on me.

    • Most shadows don’t last on me because of oily lids, especially cream eyeshadows. I’m happy that I can rely on these ones.

  • I love eyeshadows sticks but have yet to try anything from Kiko. I would love to be able to get to a Kiko store so that I could swatch some & then have a splurge. This colour looks so pretty! xx


    • I haven’t had a chance to visit the store yet, I’m sure I’d pick up many things if I went there 🙂 x

  • Eyeshadow sticks are so wonderfully easy if you’re in a rush! I absolutely love them. This color seems so gorgeous. Would love to give Kiko a try!

    • Totally agree with you, they are really easy to use. If you have a chance, definitely give Kiko products a try.

  • Great review! I really like those ones, they are probably the ones I reach for the most even though I personally need a primer underneath!

    • I am really bad at using primers, I hardly use any but I’m sure it would be even more lasting with a primer.

  • Love these sticks, I have 37, 38 and 39. I might pick up a few others as well on the sales.

  • I will join in: Let´s appreciate the person that invented eyeshadow sticks, they are such a great invention! I haven’t tried the ones from Kiko yet, but I love eyeshadow sticks, so it might be that I will pick up some in the near future.

    • Before this one, I really hated sticks. Luckily this one turned out to be a good one, I want to pick up a few more shaded.

  • That shade is the prettiest ever! <3 😀 Love love love it! I'll have to go shopping today haha. But I've also been interested in the By Terry ones, they do a really beautiful golden shade, which sounds lovely.
    Have a lovely week gorgeous and thanks for the great review <3
    Emma xxx

    • I’ve been lusting by terry ones, till I can get them this will do the job 🙂
      I hope you’re having a great week so far, enjoy your day <3 xx

  • Emily

    I’m a huge fan of these! Like you say, they are so easy to apply and blend and what a brilliant selection of colours too! I just wish I had a kiko nearby!

    Musings & More

    • I wish the same, until I find a store close to me, I will have to rely on online order.

  • This is such a gorgeous shade!! I wish we had Kiko!

    Candice | Beauty Candy Loves

  • I have a few of these and I love them, as you have said they are so easy to apply and make it look like you have put more effort into your eyeshadow then you really have 🙂

    Pams Stuff and Things

    • Perfect for early morning 🙂 at least I can look decent without spending so much time:)

  • Wow, this seems to be a good eyeshadow stick! I’ve only tried the Maybelline Colorband before and the formula is too dry to actually be pleasant to use, and it is quite hard to blend out as well. This Kiko product seems to be a nice alternative, especially if they’re dupe for the By Terry sticks! I’ll go and swatch them in the shop. Thanks for sharing 😀

    • Definitely swatch them, they are so creamy and long lasting. I want to pick up a few more shades 🙂 x

  • I love the Kiko Eyeshadow Sticks – they’re so creamy and pigmented! xx

    Gemma ♥ | Miss Makeup Magpie

  • I haven’t tried their eyeshadow sticks but I have only ever read positive reviews on them…this shade is gorgeous! 🙂 x

    Brenda BusyBee | Win a Billion Dollar Brows 60 Seconds To Beautiful Brows Kit

    • They are really good and this shade is my favourite 🙂 x

  • I first started lusting over Kiko Long Lasting Eyeshadow sticks after seeing them making appearances in Lisa Eldridge’s videos! And I have yet to get my hands on them until now. Kiko has started shipping to the US so I’m impatiently waiting for then to arrive Canada.

    Shireen | Reflection of Sanity

    • I first saw them on YouTube too, but I can’t remember who. Might be Anna or Lily. I hope they will start shipping to Canada ASAP, their products are really good and there are so many things to try.

  • I’ve got quite a lot of Kiko makeup and though this colour is a bit dark for me, I’d definitely try it in a lighter shade

    • I like brown/bronze shades, however there are many lighter shades too.

  • dollactitud
  • I have the By Terry Ombre Blackstar and it is amazing but this looks just as good and it is so affordable. Love the colour too x

    • By Terry ones have been on my list for long time. Until I get them, kiko ones will do the job x

  • This looks like such a beautiful shade! I’ve never heard of this brand, but if they are available in Canada I will definitely be hunting them down!
    Thanks for sharing!

    • It is an Italian brands. I guess they are not available in Canada at the moment.

  • I have two of these KIKO eyeshadows 06 and 07 which both are beautiful but I hardly ever use them, I definitely prefer to reach for my powder eyeshadows. But they are fantastic quality and the shade you have is gorgeous! x

    Mummy’s Beauty Corner

    • I mostly use powder eyeshadows too, especially in warmer days but these are really handy when you’re in a hurry:) xx

  • I love it when I find items in the shape of a pen. We all know how to use pens, so why do make up artists create items in a fiddly way.

    This colour is GORGEOUS too!

    I need to have a look out for this shade


    • Haha totally agree with the way you think 🙂
      It is such a pretty shades, perfect for brown/bronze look. x

  • This was the first Kiko product I tried too but in a different colour! They are so pigmented I really like them! Kiko always seem to have sales on too, I must order a few more things to try soon!

    Danielle’s Beauty Blog

    • Sales is good 🙂 I always paid the full price when I ordered from Kiko, I wasn’t lucky enough to catch sales :/

  • Karina Guimarães Ribeiro

    I love long lasting makeup, the color of this eyeshadow is very pretty!


  • Chloe Barnes

    Stunning photos! <3 really want to try more Kiko products only have a few of their nail polishes!

    I love Kiko creamy eyeshadows, they are so pigmented! ^-^
    I have to buy this shade cause is sooo great!

    • I really like Kiko products, they are really good 🙂

  • Never try putting brown on my eye but seems great
    Need to find in Kiko soon.

  • For someone with perpetually oily lids, this sounds like a DREAM. I’ve been hearing a lot about KIKO but have never actually tried them out. We don’t get KIKO counters her, ahhh!

    May | THE MAYDEN | bloglovin’

    • I wish Kiko had more stores available worldwide. My eyelids get oily so quickly so this does a great job.

  • I have oily eyelids and definitely struggle all the time with cream eyeshadows!! It’s so nice to know that you have the same problem and found that these actually stayed put! It gives me hope haha! I’m definitely going to keep an eye out for these!

    Shannon Sage

    • You should give it a try. These sticks are amazing 🙂

  • Looks like a great product vom Kiko 🙂

  • I also have oily eyelids and it’s truly quite difficult to find creamy eye shadows that would last for hours! This eye shadow stick sounds very promising though! I’ve never purchased anything by KIKO but definitely will have a look at this brand now 🙂

    My favorite tinted moisturizer //

    • It was the first products I ordered from Kiko and I’m really impressed with the quality and how long lasting it is 🙂

  • Lauren Letizio

    This color looks so beautiful! I don’t wear a lot of eyeshadow but that has more to do with I am not too good with applying it. I think trying something like this looks like I might have more control.



    Blame it on Barneys

    • With cream eyeshadows you have more control and you don’t need any brush too. They are really easy to use. x

  • Elena Alina

    I’ve recently bought a lipstick from KIKO and I was very satisfied! I might as well try this eyeshadow too 🙂


    • I have a few products from Kiko and I am happy with all of the products so far 🙂 x

  • Charlotte

    It’s such a gorgeous bronzey shade!
    Charlotte //

  • Well, if the gorgeous colour didn’t sell it to me, your review definitely has! Can’t wait to pick this up 🙂

    Betti | Love from Berlin contributor

    • Everything is great about this eyeshadow, I really like it 🙂

  • Fifty Shades Of Pink

    This eyeshadow looks amazing. I’ve a lot of products from Kiko but I never tried these kind of stick eyeshadow!

    Just followed you on bloglovin! 🙂

    • If you get a chance, give them a try! They are really good.

      Thank you so much, I will check my bloglovin later on 🙂

  • The Sunday Mode

    This looks like the perfect chocolate brown shade. I totally agree as well, shadow sticks like this are so perfect for when you’re feeling lazy!

    • I am really most of the time, especially in early mornings, so it comes really handy.

  • Nadia

    Having had similar experience with creamy eyeshadows (and sworn off them), this is such good news 🙂 There is hope after all lol.
    Such a great and detailed review & fab recommendation – thanks so much sweetie.
    I absolutely love the colour and can already imagine all the looks you can create with it. I will make sure to check it out. You re-introduced KIKO into my life and I am super excited to test out more of their products. Hope your week is going smoothly, hon <3
    xox Nadia

    • There is a hope… I am really happy about it 🙂 I used to hate cream eyeshadows and now I’ve been loving them.
      This brown shade is gorgeous and perfect for day and night, I’m sure it would look beautiful on you <3
      I hope you're having a great week, lovely <3 xx

  • These eyeshadow sticks are seriously amazing and tbh I prefer them over the By Terry ones. I enjoy using them so so so much and the price just satisfies me. I love how Kiko do these good sales. x

  • Oh cool D: I’ve never tried eyeshadow sticks. How do you blend them? The color pigmentation on this one in particular looks nice and strong.

    • You can use your fingers or a blending brush, they all work 🙂

  • Oh man, I have been wanting to try Kiko forever! I might ask my cousin who lives in Germany if I can place an order and send it to her house! LOL

    • You should really give Kiko products a try, some of them are really good. xx

  • Trang Do

    Sounds like great product!! Love it!!
    Kisses and hugs from {a lifestyle, fashion, beauty, and food blog}

  • i’m always so bad about using my eyeshadow sticks. i thought that would change when i purged a whole bunch and tried the laura mercier ones. those are stellar and yet i still don’t reach for them! i wish kiko was available in canada, i would def pick up a few things.


    A Beautiful Zen

    • Since cream eyeshadows are hit or miss for me, I don’t really want to spend so much on them without trying for a few days. At least Kiko one didn’t cost much.

  • clara mcmillan

    This looks fabulous!

    God bless,

    XO, Claire

  • I agree with you, The concept of eyeshadow stick is just awesome! 😁 You picked a lovely shade!! 🙂

  • Diane

    I’m obsessing over this eyeshadow stick!! This looks fabulous, and I definitely need to try it out!


    • Definitely give it a try, it is really good and pigmented.

  • I have super oily lids, almost like “the wet look” so I struggle with creamy shadows. I have only found the Colour Tattoo to work for me, btu I am super interested to try this!

    Angie | Chocolate & Lipstick | Beauty, Fashion & Lifestyle Blog

    • Colour tattoo also works on me and lasts long time. I would highly recommend these sticks.

  • I completely agree Ela, these are so amazing! I used them when I was doing make-up training and fell in love with them. I really want to invest in more bronzy gold tones of these. – What I Got For Christmas 2015

    • Bronze/brown tones are beautiful and my favourite shades. I like how long lasting they are and the pigmentation is fab.

  • I absolutely LOVE these! I can confirm they are virtually as good as By Terry’s and some of the shades are identical. I will definitely be digging out Golden Chocolate again 🙂 xx

    Jasmine Talks Beauty

    • Now this is so good to know:) I really like the golden shiny packaging of By Terry ones. xx

  • This looks so good! Shadow sticks are some of my favorite products purely because I’m lazy and they’re sooooo easy to put on and they always look great. Love the pictures Ela!
    xx Dany

    • I am so lazy most of the mornings too, so these are really handy. I can actually achieve a nice look at I thout spending so much time 🙂
      Thank you, Dany! xx

  • I love love Kiko eye shadow stick! I love the shade you pick, I wished I picked up more of these because they are so awesome and affordable!

    Miriam ♥ A whole lot of serendipity

    • I guess I will be picking up w few shades too, I really like the pigmentation!

  • Ileana Druetta

    This is such a beautiful shade! I still haven’t tried the brand, but only heard good things about it 🙂



    • You should definitely try some of their products, they are good and really affordable:) x

  • Adalias C

    I don’t think I would spend £29 on By Terry products so this is definitely something I would opt for! xx

    • Even full price is really little comparing to By Terry xx

  • I love Kiko eyeshadow sticks. I have #06 and #38 and love them. Golden Chocolate is also beautiful. x

    Renata | Speaking Beauty UK

    • #6 and #38 are beautiful, I really want to pick up a few more 🙂 x

  • Erin Russell

    I really need to try some more Kiko, and these look incredible. I’m such a nightmare for online shopping – I never do it. But these are lovely, and I really need to try more from Kiko!

    • I hardly do online shopping, but for Kiko I had to do it. I received the products without a damage so I am happy about it 🙂

  • I could never bring myself to spend that much on an eyeshadow stick either! I would much rather get a lovely highend foundation or concealer!! Great review Ela, I picked up a couple of these last year and I agree, they’re fantastic for busy mornings when you don’t have time to pick up a palette and brushes but you also want your eyes to have a bit more character than the dark circles there already!

    Iqra | The Blushing Giraffe x

  • Kiko is such an amazing but underrated brand! It’s amazing! This stick looks like a high-end one, so cool! Thanks for sharing this! xx

  • The color is gorgeous and one of my favorites…i would get it in my next visit to anywhere in Europe 🙂

  • I only own one of these but I love the formula so much! I wish I could purchase Kiko more easily but I do own a fair number of things from the brand and love everything! Hope you’ve been well, hun.
