Kiko Milano Intense Colour Eye Pencil Review & Swatches – 05 & 11

Kiko Milano Eye Pencils

One of the good things about moving to New Jersey, is that it’s one of the states that has Kiko Milano stores. Kiko Milano is an Italian cosmetics known for their wide range of colors and textures all with a rather affordable price tag (in comparison to other department store brands).

Question of the Week: Which eyeshadow palettes have you been reaching for the most lately?

EauMG’s Answer: I’m very boring when it comes to eye makeup looks. I like matte and neutral. And this is why I’ve been reaching for Paula’s Choice The Nude Mattes Eyeshadow Palette every single day. It has everything I need. I do think it’s funny that the palette I’m using the most is one that was a free gift

Question of the Week: False Lashes: Love ‘em or leave ‘em?

EauMG’s Answer: It’s funny because I used to wear false lashes daily and now I’m like “whatever”. I go through phases like that. I have wore them maybe once in the past year. I really do like the look and they really aren’t difficult to apply, but I’m sort of in a “minimalist” phase right now and I actually like less “dramatic” eye makeup at this time.

Question of the Week: – Do you have any makeup/beauty tricks for looking more awake?

EauMG’s Answer: Coffee. Oh, makeup tricks…this is what works for me. I keep eye makeup minimal and line the top lash line thinly with a cool-toned liner like a navy of cool evergreen. I curl lashes and apply mascara to top lashes only. This is the only way my eyes look “awake”. Bottom lash line liner makes me look haggard
