Kiko Milano Holographic Nailpolish : 001 ~ Review & Swatch

 

Kiko Milano is currently my favorite nailpolish brand and I have hoarded so many nailpolish over time (Haul post HERE :P). Kiko Milano keeps launching new collections and the Holographic collection was launched quite sometime back. I have reviewed the shade ‘004‘ previously in THIS post and recently I came across this silver shade from the same collection. Kiko Milano has some good offers and discounts so keep an eye if you have a store nearby. Although this collection is mostly out of stock now as it was a limited edition, you can still get a few shades and that too at half price than when it was newly launched.

 

Price: Rs 270 for 10 ml

             (Rs 550 when it was newly launched)

 

Kiko Milano Holographic nail lacquer 001 review

  • Kiko Milano Holographic Nail Lacquer comes in round glass bottle with black cap. The cap is removable and the brush cap underneath is striated for better grip..
  • Shade number and other details are stickered at the back in form of booklet (which has 6 pages btw!).
  • Kiko Milano doesnot have names for its products, only numbers.
  • The brush is short and not too wide but picks up enough quantity for one coat application.
  • Pigmentation is slightly sheer and formula is smooth and easy to apply. It builds to full opacity in 2-3 coats, depending on how thick coats you apply.
  • It dries fairly quickly and there is no waiting between application of  multiple coats.
  • Kiko Milano Holographic nail polish in shade 001 is a light grey color with beautiful holographic microshimmer. The holo effect is heavily visible under  sunlight/ flash and faintly visible indoors. Shade 004 has more prominent holo effect than this one. Indoors, shade 001 looks light grey color with slight pearl finish
  • The holo effect is not in-your-face kind, but is subtle and fine.  I have taken pics under different lighting to show the depth of holo.
  • Wear time is 4-5 days without chipping.
  • Price wise this is not expensive for the quantity.
  • If you are not much into holo effect and like glitter nailpolish more, do check out a beautiful silver nailpolish from Lakme  HERE.

Colorbar I-Glide Eye Pencil: Coalmine ~ Review and Swatch

Colorbar I-glide eyeliners are my all time favorite. If you have to choose only one eyeliner among all the different brands, choose this one. Colorbar I-glide eyeliners are amazing.  This is the third shade I own and I have already reviewed two shades from the range in THIS post.:

Jaded (most gorgeous jewel toned green) and

Cocobar (dark brown)

In this post I am reviewing the shade Coalmine 009.

 

Price: Rs 550 for 1.1 g

 

Colorbar I-Glide Eye Pencil: Coalmine Review

Colorbar I-glide eyeliner pencils come in a silver cardboard packaging containing all details. The eyeliner pencil is made of silver colored plastic with color coded ends and shade name engraved along the side. The cap of the pencil shuts tight. The color coded ends make it easier to identify the shade if you have multiple shades. This is a sharpenable eyelinerand not retractable, which leads to product wastage whenever you sharpen it, and being made of plastic adds to even more wastage! Also, these are not meant to be applied on waterline.

The formula of these eyeliner pencils is amazing. They are super creamy and pigmented and deliver full color in one swipe itself. The texture is super smooth and glides easily on the eyelids. Once set, the eyeliner is smudge proof and has excellent staying power (best one I have tried so far). It does not budge at all (even with light rubbing of eyes). It stays put until removed by an oil based remover.

Colorbar I-glide eyeliner in shade Coalmine is a beautiful dark grey (almost black) color loaded with silver shimmer. This color looks super pretty when worn in parties. Being a shimmer eyeliner, this is not meant for office wear but looks super pretty when worn otherwise. The shimmer is very fine and not glittery at all, giving a beautiful dimension to the overall color.

Coalmine (and Jaded) shade is a repurchase. I usually don’t buy same shades from same brand twice unless I really really like it but this shade is so gorgeous that I had to purchase it again, and will continue doing so till it gets discontinued 😛

Colorbar I-glide eyeliner come in 15 shades with different finish, and each shade suits Indian skin tone perfectly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Colorbar I-Glide Eye Pencils are super smooth and very pigmented eyeliners. It gives full color in one stroke itself. However, being sharpenable pencils, these lead to product wastage. Also, these cannot be applied to waterline. Coamine is a beautiful dark grey color with silver shimmer. This shade is perfect for parties and evening wear. Once set, this eyeliner does not budge AT ALL. These eyeliner come in a variety of shades (15 in total) and finish, and you must check it out at the counters. You will not regret buying these, I can guarantee.

XOXO, Blossom 🙂
