Kiko Milano Smart Colour Eyeshadow Pearly Lotus (11), Review

Last month, I shared my experience with Kiko Eyeshadow Pearly Wisteria, a beautiful purply eyeshadow which does not come out to be too pigmented on the eyes. Today’s review would be about Kiko Eyeshadow Pearly Lotus, which too belongs to single smart color eyeshadows from Kiko Milano. Does this perform like the shade Pearly Wisteria or is it even worst, read the full review to find out!

Kiko Eyeshadow Pearly Lotus


  • Brightly colored eyeshadow with a smooth texture
  • Ophthalmologically and dermatologically tested (provided with low sensitization)
  • All Kiko products are formulated without parabens
List of Ingredients:

Kiko Single eyeshadows come in a small square-shaped pan with a sturdy transparent lid. The color of the shadow can be seen without opening the lid which makes it easier to select the desired color from the bunch of other colors (unlike their water eyeshadows which have an opaque black lid). The outer packaging of the eyeshadow is a black cardboard box containing the details about the product. The outer box also has a cutout on it from where the color of the eyeshadow is visible.

My Experience with Kiko Eyeshadow Pearly Lotus:

The shade Pearly Lotus is a beautiful soft pink color. It is one of the many pink shades available in the collection. The eyeshadow has minute sized shimmer particles which are visible in the pan as well as on the eyes. But, these shimmer particles are very finely melted in the formula and hence they can not actually be felt with fingers.

The formula of the shadow is very soft and creamy to apply and it does seem to blend well. But the bad point is that there is no color to actually blend. When applied with fingertips, it does seem to have a lightest of pink pigment, but the color almost vanishes when a brush is used. Even if you apply the color with your fingertip (to get some color), blending further with a brush makes the lid colorless. I could not test the staying power of the color as there was no color on my lids to actually test.

Overall Verdict:

The color looks beautiful in the pan but unfortunately, there is no color payoff at all. The color refuses to show up on my lids even after multiple coats. It might show a little when the brush is wet, but that too vanishes as soon as you try to blend the color. The formula is creamy and affordable, but this particular color must be a complete skip.

Pros of Kiko Eyeshadow Pearly Lotus:
  • Comparatively affordable
  • Paraben-free
  • Soft to touch and creamy to apply
Cons of Kiko Eyeshadow Pearly Lotus:
  • No color payoff at all
  • Completely looses whatever little color it gives on blending
  • A lot of fallout in the pan
Hand Swatch:

The color/formula might have some pros to it, but if the color doesn’t show up on the lids at all, what is the use of even applying the color
