Kiko Cosmetics’ Long Lasting Stick Shadow in Golden Taupe (38)

I held off on getting this color initially because it was a neutral, and while it looked nice enough…I had enough neutral bases. I wanted to get the brighter and bolder Stick Shadows! I finally did pick up this color, though, and it performs as well as the rest of the Stick Shadow cremes: smooth and easy application, great pigmentation, and good longevity. This color ended up being a bit lighter than the vendor photo suggested, but true to something named “taupe” it did have a slight ashiness. It also looks like it has a very soft gold shimmer layer.
