Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review of the Kiko Smart Colour Mascara in the shade Metallic Burgundy.
This is a recurring trend for me, every Summer I love to get a burgundy mascara and Kiko usually has them in their limited editions for the season.
I just love how it enhances the green in my eyes and it’s softer than black which makes it perfect since I tend to wear less makeup in the Summer.
Here you can see last year’s.
You can get it from kikocosmetics.com for 13,50$
The colour is stunning, a beautiful dark burgundy and it’s not really metallic as the name would suggest.
The packaging is a square tube that matches the colour inside. It comes in a cardboard box and the shade name is on the bottom, it’s very simple, but I like it.
The spooly a normal size bristle wand, very classic.
The formula is almost moussy, I prefer more liquidy mascaras because they are easier to use and I feel like this will dry fast.
The colour is pretty but it’s almost too light, that, combined with the mascara being very soft creates an effect I don’t love. It’s way too delicate for my tastes.
The brush is ok, but I always get my lid dirty and I have to use a Qtip to clean up.
The final effect is very nice but too soft for my tastes, I like it but I feel like I need more.
It doesn’t bleed and lasts about 8 hours on me.

I feel like this is definitely a nice mascara, but I don’t like the effect on my lashes, I like that you can see the colour. The formula is ok. It’s an ok mascara but I’m looking for something else that I would like more.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
