KIKO eyeshadow stick in 05

Today was one of those days when I stayed in bed for an extra hour and then had to kind of rush my makeup. And let's be honest, I just couldn't be bothered to do a serious eyeshadow look. But I did want to look like I made an effort- this is where the eyeshadow stick comes in. 

I never really paid any attention to the KIKO store in my local shopping centre until I read a post by Anna from Vivianna does Makeup about her favourite eyeshadow sticks and this was in it. So on the same day I went and bought three of these. Two for me and one for my best friend. They're 6€ which is such a good price for the quality you get! They last really well on my eyelids which are beyond oily, it takes about three hours for them to crease without a primer. That may not sound great to most people but even my Urban Decay Primer Potion creases on me within five minutes if I don't set it with a powder!
The colour I chose to wear today is 05 and I'm absolutely in love with it! It's very shimmery and almost metallic when you swatch it but also looks very pretty blended out. I don't know how to describe the colour, it's a bronzey brown colour but with an almost lilac undertone which unfortunately doesn't translate in the swatch picture. 
I just apply these from the stick to my lid and then blend the edges with my Mac 217. 

Have you ever tried anything from KIKO?
