Laura Geller 'Gilded Honey' V. Kiko '208' Water Eyeshadow!!

It seems the latest "Make up trend" and I type that in quotation marks because there seems be a new trend in make up everyday! BUT that's a good thing! There's no right or wrong way to apply make up. It all washes off anyway!

Now, I don't know about you but I am obsessed with the tops of one's cheekbones, bridge of the nose, above the cupid's bow of the perk of the lips to be gleaming, shining iridescently for all to see. I love the highlighted look! It allows your make up to not have that flat, one dimensional look and instead creates a beautiful canvas ready for any occasion.

The two highlighters in question, well one of them is an eye shadow; the KIKO water eye shadow in '208' which has the beautysphere going insane because its a dupe of so many high end or limited edition highlighters which are no longer available e.g. Estee Lauder 'Heat Wave' or Mac 'Whisper of Guilt.

The other highlighter is the Laura Geller highlighter in 'Gilded Honey' which looks very similiar as the KIKO shadow. The main purpose of this post is to decipher whether the above two photographed are essentially the same thing. And if so, to get the cheaper one, haha!!

Above are the swatches of both. To the left is the Laura Geller highlighter and the right is the KIKO shadow. Very VERY similiar and literally undetectable on the face. The Geller highlight is slightly a more red gold and the KIKO a slightly yellow gold. The texture is buttery soft and insanely pigmented. I am OBSESSED with both but they are both exactly the same on the skin. The Laura Geller highlighter is priced at £21.00 (purchase here) and KIKO shadow is £8.90 (purchase here)!

Which one do you own or prefer?
