A couple of days ago I went to Kiko Milano store and went head over heels with it. Its a small store (compared to Sephora, of course) but I just wanted to bring everything home with me... Since I was prevented for doing just that by my sister and my budget, I got a few products I thought were just right for a 40-something fair skinned and dark haired girl just like myself.
Then I got 2 different eye shadows. The "clics system" one was nº 207, a deep mango colour I fell in love with, with no shimmer. Not your average nude, for sure, but proof that a 40's girl is not doomed to pale eyes. When I put it on, it stays well for hours and makes my eyes pop in a beautiful, beautiful way. The other one has more shimmer and I chose a lighter shade, nº 105 Pearly Pale Green. And the colour also lasts for hours, so I'm pleased with them.
Não sei resistir a um bâton ou a um gloss. Alguns estavam em saldos e comprei o nº 13 Pearly Peony Pink e nº 6 Apple Red. Acho que os glosses são óptimos, fáceis de aplicar e nunca dão o ar de serem "demais". Gosto de bâton vermelho, mas não o usaria de manhã, enquanto já é possível aplicar um gloss. Além disso, algumas mulheres mais velhas pensam que os bâtons escuros as envelhecem (NÃO sou uma delas!) e o gloss é mais leve e por isso mais adequado.
