Throwback Thursday Makeup Look – Kiko Color Impact Eyeshadow Palette!

I picked up this palette when I first discovered Kiko as a brand on a holiday in Italy. That was before they started sending to Norway, so this was only a brand I could find while traveling. And I really fell in love with the brands low price tag and good quality.


This was a palette in one of their many limited edition collections that they release all the time, and I actually picked up four different ones. Today I decided to use the “03Bright Night Lights” because of the nice combination of pink, purple and shimmery green.


I used all six shades together in one look, and this is the end result!


  • Kiko Colour Impact Eyeshadow Palette 03 Bright Night Lights.
  • H&M Colour Essence Eye Pencil – Panther.
  • Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Liner 24 H – Black.
  • L’Oreal Paradise Extatic Mascara.
  • Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade – Medium Brown.
  • Zoeva Brow Spectrum – Bro30, Bro70, Bro10.
  • House Of Lashes – Featherette.
  • Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick – Druglord.

I have to admit I had a hard time with the matte pink and matte purple in this palette. They were so incredibly dusty and had troubles sticking to my lid. It disappeared so quickly when I started blending, I had to just carefully pat it on and the blending was also more of a patting motion rather than swiping back and forth. They gave me a really hard time to be honest.


The shimmer shades worked great though, and they are a lot more sparkly in real life than they appear in photos, so those shades are really really pretty.

The peachy satin shade in the middle of the bottom row is also such a unique shade. Believe it or not it is the prettiest shade in the palette and I have nothing else like it. It just have a very particular kind of sheen and undertone to it that is so hard to describe, but it really makes blue eyes pop, and I am sure that among the thousands of eyeshadows I own, I have nothing that can dupe this. Pretty cool right?

Even though the purple and pink gave me a hard time both the palette and brand has a special place in my heart. If nothing else it is a holiday memory with one un-dupeable shade.
