Kiko Cosmetics now in the UK

Kiko-makeup-review

Kiko Makeup Milano is the latest Italian beauty brand to reach UK shores and bring a burst of colourful personality with it.  "Be What You Want to Be" is how KIKO sums up its vision of Beauty... I like it!   I received a few products from the Limited Edition ‘Colours in the World’ range to swatch for you, so let’s have a closer look…

Products

I like these twist up pen style applicators a lot - anything quick and easy is a winner for me!  The gorgeous green is Long Lasting Eyeshadow in Soft Green Apple, a soft jade tone that fits right in with the SS 2013 bright eyed trend.  Below it is Long Lasting Lipstick in True Red, which got a lot of love when I posted a pic of me wearing on Instagram last week (here).  I’ve already introduced Pearly Pink Iguana Celebration Lacquer here and the shimmering bottle is Pigment Loose Eyeshadow in Burning Brown.

Swatches

Kiko Swatches

Pigment Loose Eyeshadow in Burning Brown is a dark chestnut mushroom shade with delicate shimmer.

Long Lasting Eyeshadow in Soft Green Apple is a faded dusky jade with a slightly chalky look. Highly pigmented and creamy to apply, this is one pass.

Long Lasting Lipstick in True Red is a brick toned red, which I would never have chosen but absolutely loved when applied.  Again, this is just one pass and the lipstick is truly long lasting… I did find it a little drying, so pop some lipbalm underneath or top with a little gloss if you’re not a fan of the uber matt finish.

Overall these products have given me a great initial impression of Kiko… I think the quality is great for the drugstore prices and I’ll definitely be back for more. So far the nail polish is the winner for me!
