Kiko Infinity Eyeshadow Clics System Swatches
I went to a Kiko store and tried some of the new Infinity Eyeshadows for the Clics System.
I mostly tried a few mattes and a couple of the glittery ones (and in order not to forget the numbers, I wrote them with a kajal tester.. excuse the horrible writing, I wrote with my left hand and I'm righthanded...). The colors are much more pigmented irl.
So, from the left:
207 Papaya Orange: a matte orange with cold undertones, colder than Neve Cosmetic's Magma, but still pretty. Almost blood-like.
262 Green & 263 Forest Green: You can see the 263 barely because I swatched it just to compare it with 262, a much warmer green. 263 is identical to 109 of the standard line.
275 Electric Blue: A nice matte blue, way more electric and pigmented irl. Not as strong as I'd love.
273 Sky Blue: Literally the color of the sky, very nice.
408 Light blue: A peacock blue, I swatched it because it was almost a duochrome.
403 Pink: a duochrome with cold, violet/light blue hues.
This line of special glittery eyeshadow is so much better irl! If you can, go and give a look at them! Unfortunately I think they will have a great fallout, you'd need to wear them wet.
Overall they are nicely pigmented and the quality seems good. The color assortments is very pretty to see in the stores, the website doesn't do justice to it. I like the fact that they included a lot of matte colors, but
the prices seem a bit high if you count that they're not lipsafe. The prices are similar to Neve Cosmetics single eyeshadows, but the Neve ones are at least lipsafe. The empty palettes seem quite useful.
