The Ombre Blackstar Dupe

This By Terry dupe by Kiko has your Christmas party eyes sorted...

KIKO is a brand that I’ve wanted to try for a long time. It’s definitely a fave brand amongst beauty bloggers. So, you can imagine how happy I was when KIKO opened up a store in Eldon Square, Newcastle. Like I needed another excuse to buy more makeup. So, naturally, I had a lot of products on my KIKO wish list and I just couldn’t resist any longer. You just have to treat.yo.self sometimes and well, it is the Christmas season after all.

So, in true blogger style, I wandered around the KIKO store swatching practically every product. The Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow was a must-try because so many bloggers have fallen in love with this product and it’s not difficult to see why. Wow. I was immediately drawn towards the shade 07: Golden Beige because I love glittery golden eyes at this time of year. The formula is like butter, the shadow is so pigmented and this shade seriously brings all the shimmer. Like, all the shimmer. This shadow was made for Christmas parties. All the heart-eyed emojis. And trust me, these shadows won’t budge. I swatched this on the back on my hand and it wasn’t going anywhere. It has some serious staying power. I also love the NARS-esque packaging of these shadow sticks.  And the best thing of all: the shadow sticks are only £6.90! So, naturally, I had to buy this gorgeous eyeshadow and I’ll definitely be wearing it all December.

Now, I know what you’re all thinking. This product sounds very similar to one of my absolute high-end faves. Yep, I’m talking about my beloved By Terry Ombre Blackstar eyeshadows. I know I'm a little late on the bandwagon with this one but these KIKO shadow sticks are a definite dupe. If I’m being honest, I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between them. They’re practically identical. Formula, pigmentation, staying power are exactly the same.  

Now, I still love my By Terry Ombre Blackstar: they are so luxe and the gold packaging is rather fancy. Bronze Moon is one of my most favourite eyeshadows ever. But considering that the Ombre Blackstar eyeshadows are £29, I think I’ll be buying more KIKO Long Lasting Shadow Sticks in the future. I already have my eye on 06- Golden Brown and 25- Light Taupe.
