Afternoon lovelies! Unfortunately I am off work and cannot fulfil my elf duties as my immune system hates me and at this present moment in time I am unable to speak and my Mother loves it. However thats good news for you as I am still able to write and publish some posts. A little different to my christmas posts as I thought a change was needed. 
So, whilst I was in Portugal I saw a Kiko store. I've heard of the brand but never really had an interest in checking it out, however I had some euros to spare and thought why not. I have to say I was in make up heaven, a pretty big store for make-up so I was completely mind blown and the prices were crazy! I picked one eyeshadow in 236 - Pearly Champagne for what is converted to £5.90, bargain right?
I absolutely love the eyeshadow and wore it for the next 3 days I was there. When I got home I placed it in my make up storage next to my Mac quad and realised a similarity to Mac Grain. And the dupe was formed! 

Mac Grain
As expected from Mac the eyeshadow retails for £13 in its individual packaging and £10 for a pan refill. This eyeshadow is a little more satin rather than a shimmer making it look more pigmented than the Kiko Pearly Champagne. 
Kiko 236 Pearly Champagne 
This shadow retails for £5.90 less that half the price of Macs grain! This shadow has a little more shimmer than grain making it perfect for a lid colour, brow highlighter and inner corner shade. 

Have you guys tried any Kiko products? If you have drop me a comment with your recommendations! Thank you.
