Makeup stores dedicated to one brand were obviously going to be a hit, but why have they only just started appearing now. KIKO have definitely got the right idea; every product they sell, in every shade they have, in one shop. We don’t always want the items chosen for the likes of Boots or Superdrug so this way we can chose exactly what we want.
I could have honestly spent hours in the KIKO store, there was so much to see and swatch, luckily I didn’t bankrupt myself, however tempting it was. What I did get were three really good quality products which I’ve used a lot since I purchased them.
First off I got the Pencil Lip Gloss in 07 Baby Pink. This looks like it will have a chubby sticky type consistency, however it is how it describes itself: a lip gloss. Baby Pink is a neutral pink which is a ‘my lips but better’ shade, it’s pencil like for makes application on the go really easy.
I don’t have time to do fancy eyeshadow everyday so I’m always looking for quick but stunning no fuss alternatives to powder shadows. Enter now the KIKO Long Lasting Stick in 25 Light Taupe. This shade doesn’t look like much, but I apply it to my lid and blend out with my finger. Blending it is so easy and it just adds an extra dimension to my eyes.
Finally is probably the most gorgeous looking eyeshadow I have ever seen. This is part of the Rebel Romantic collection and is the Metallic Shine Eyeshadow in 01 Superb Beige. It is an iridescent beigey pink which is perfect for an inner corner highlight or to brighter the eyelid, honestly it is beautiful!
The swatches above just don’t do justice to the Metallic Eyeshadow it is so much prettier in real life. Overall my first experience with KIKO was very positive, I’m creating a wishlist already! Have you tried anything from KIKO?
