The Review - Kiko Water Eyeshadow

First and foremost I havent been blogging for a few months, because I had a lot of stuff going on and I was on holiday from month so things have been pretty hectic lately so that's why I've been AWOL.

Honestly there has been a lot of negative energy surrounding blogging lately, I found that I was distancing myself from a hobby that I loved doing purely because of the energy surrounding it.  I'm kind of glad that I took a few months off it made me reevaluate and prioritise the most important things in my life.I still love blogging but I'm not going to force myself to do something that I don't want, so until I found my blogging mojo I thought it would be best if I stayed out the blogosphere.

That's just a little explanation as to where I was and how was feeling recently I hope you guys understand.
 Now getting back into blogging I'm going to first start off with a review.

I brought the Kiko water eyeshadows a while back so I've been using them for quite some time now and here is the lowdown. Now I'll start off with the pros first of all the price is very affordable for the amount of product, the eyeshadows have 3 g of product and cost £8.90. The colour payoff of the eyeshadows it's okay the reason why I say it's okay is because when swatching on the back of my hand they come off as very pigmented however when I use this on my eyes it's just not the same there's quite a lot of fallout and I find myself constantly packing it on the lids to try and get the intensity that I want. When used wet the colour intensity is a lot stronger however it's very hard to blend because once it dries which is in a few seconds it doesn't move so I only use this when I want to pack it on the lids. The colour 200 champagne is a nice highlight which I use on my face as well as my eyes and it works beautifully obviously if you want a more intense highlight then just go ahead and wet the brush before applying.  The packaging is very sleek its matte black and has a pocket sized mirror which is a great bonus I love make products that have mirrors it makes life so much easier when you're on the go.

Overall they are okay considering the price but because of the fallout and the colour not translating on the lids very well I don't think I will be purchasing any more any time soon or reaching out for them very often I mean who wants to clean fallout early in the morning, not me that's for sure.

Do you guys have any budget eyeshadow recommendations that are good quality let me know in the comments below
