With sixteen vibrant shades, Kiko Cream Crush Eyeshadows are lining up to fill the gap that exists for well-priced moussy shadow. I think that these would fall into the ‘cushion’ feel of things with a spongy texture that blends well. The colour is intense, and as often happens with Kiko, I can see similarities to luxury brands both in texture and in colour selection. The three shades above are: 13, Pearly Violet, 16, Pearly Emerald and 15, Pearly Turqouise.Kiko Cream Crush Eyeshadows
There are gentler colours, too, but they’re very highly pigmented so impactful despite being more on the nude spectrum. Above is 06, Pearly Chocolate, 09, Pearly Gold (a ringer for a Chanel Stylo that I have), 05, Pearly Silver Rose.Kiko Cream Crush Eyeshadows
Finally, from the selection that I have here, are 14, Pearly Electric Blue and 02, Pearly Warm Rose. The Kiko Cream Crush Eyeshadows aren’t disimilar to the Dior Fusion Monos which have a tendency to dry out quickly, so I hope these aren’t the same. I think they aren’t as sophisticated in consistency as Dior, but the outcome is pretty much the same.
I’ve swatched in sunlight so you can see the sheen: Pearly Warm Rose, Pearly Silver Rose, Pearly Gold and Pearly Chocolate. If you look carefully at Pearly Warm Rose, you’ll see that it hasn’t come out totally smoothly – this happened with almost all of them so I’d advise that you work it into the palm of your hand before applying to your lid to get rid of the chunky bits and get a smooth result.
In this swatch, I have Pearly Electric Blue, Pearly Violet, Pearly Turqouise and Pearly Emerald. For no particular reason, Pearly Emerald came out smooth as silk. I didn’t get any of the mattes in my selection, so all of these are shimmer shot – quite heavily in some cases. They’re not tested for last or drop, but I’d always advise an eye primer.
So, Kiko Cream Crush Eyeshadows are £6.90 each HERE.

These are such a great price! I just wish there was Kiko closer to me as I like to swatch rather than just ordering. (:
They look really nice and the price is great. I need to order some.
These are great colors… That blue and purple are so pretty !! will defiantly have to check these out.
Ah these look brill. I have only recently used Kiko products and the prices are brilliant as it the quality. I will have to try some of these.
Love Lucy x
I noticed Kiko shop while I was in France but I never tried any products. Are they any good? Any lasting power? I really like Nudestix Magnetic Color. I have to admit, it lasts forever, you do not need to use an eye primer but it’s quite pricy (around £25). Check out my blog xx
I think Kiko is great – good quality for the money. x
Great. I will definitely try their products! x
I LOVE these as a dupe to the illamasqua ones, however I find them a little ‘crumbly’. I find warming them up ever so slightly in your hands and blending with your finger helps a lot.
