Kiko Lavish Oriental LE (review, swatches)

4 holographic nail polishes in Kiko’s newest limited edition? Italy, here I come. :biggrin:
And as I was already there, one Colour Seduction eyeshadow palette ended up in my cart too. :cute:

I guess you could say Kiko Peacock Green (no. 401) is the shade closest to my heart. And as it usually happens I swatched this beauty when the weather was more or less cloudy, so the holographic effect is not as pronounced as in real life. On second photo I stamped with Steel Gray over Peacock Green and the sun was more cooperative which means holo is more realistic. Color is more blue (swatches) in some lighting and green (video) in others.

Kiko Silk Taupe (no. 399) is little bit weirdish but pretty color. If active, holo particles make it almost golden and if not it becomes more cooler/silverish toned taupe(?).

Kiko Steel Grey (no. 400) reminds me of this comparison of gray holo nail polishes, but in lighter version. This one seemed to be the most pigmented, that is why I decided to stamp with it over Peacock Green.

My least favorite is Kiko Jewel Pink (no. 402). A) it’s pink, B) holo effect is pretty weak … and I can forgive the second one. :silly: Joking aside it’s not bad pink at all, but in my eyes it pales in comparison with other 3 shades.

All four Kiko Lavish Oriental polishes can be applied over regular base coat, but if you use water based one, the application will be pure poetry. I used 2 coats for all the swatches.
They dry in almost satin finish which is not my favorite in holographic nail polishes, so I added one layer of Essence Better Than Gel nails Top Sealer … and that actually made the holo effect stronger. :thumb:

I like the fact that even-though holo effect is there and visible, you’re not left with silver nail polish in the shade.

All of the Kiko Colour Seduction eyeshadow palettes looked tempting, but no. 01 an 02 drew me the most. First with great color combination for quick everyday makeup and second with welcoming warm tones.
In the end I chose no.2 … Sensuous Burgundy. Colors are really rich and inviting, especially the burgundy eyeshadow. :love: The only thing missing in this palette is true highlighting color to make it outstanding. And it does how one other major downside – shelf-life is only 6 months … which is why I’m storing it in the fridge. :nervous:
So far I used it only once for whole-day makeup and I have no complaints … jet. :silly:
Swatches are made with brush over eyeshadow base in 2 thicker layers.

This is quick swatch of no. 01 palette called Sumptuous Mocha I made at the store with finger and no base … photo was taken couple of hours after the swatch was made.
