Day 108. Kiko Milano Super Colour Eyeliner in 108 [Review, swatches & look]

As anticipated by my haul post, today I am reviewing the first of the products I got: the Kiko Super Colour Eyeliner in 108.

The Super Colour eyeliners are waterproof, and I tested #108 twice: I had to use the makeup remover for waterproof product even though I passed the arm where I had swatched #108 under running water. Only scrubbing with a loofah sponge, the eyeliner was removed without any product. Since I doubt you are going to scrub your eye make up off with a loofah sponge, I'd dare say that #108 is really waterproof.

I am no expert in applying eyeliner, and I actually prefer gel liner because I find it easier to apply. The Kiko Super Colour Eyeliner are liquid eyeliner and have a nice plastic tip that make it easy to control the application. I had no problem applying a thin line on my eyes. The tip is bendy but not too much, so it's easy to apply the right amount of pressure.

The #108 Super Colour eyeliner is defined as a "shocking pink with a pearl finish" ("rosa shocking perlato" on the website). It's pink with a blue undertones. The formula is a bit watery but it doesn't run. The color application is even and opaque in one go.

Swatches for Kiko Super Colour Eyeliner in #108 (natural light/flash)
While the #108 color is kind of out there, I definitely see it a swear able because it's not fuchsia or too much in your face. If applied thinly and without a wing, it can be used in a day make up coupled with a good coat of black mascara.
As you can see from the pictures below, I did line my eyes using #108, and before that I dusted a bit of Mac Omega on the lid. I added a coat of mascara and I was done!


  1. I have the gold one and I'm disappointed, on the eye you can't see it.

    1. I had the same gold eyeliner for a while, but then I gave it to one of my friends. I remember it being a bit light, but the color was there. Have you tried applying it over a dark gel liner or a darker eyeshadow? You can do a double line, first black and then gold, the gold liner should show up a bit more then!
