Blogmas Day 16: My First Kiko Haul!

I’m very late to the Kiko train, but I’ve finally decided to join. Whilst on a shopping trip to Merry Hill the other day, I decided to give them a try. I didn’t really know what to try, so I picked a mix of a few things, but if you have any recommendations, I would love to hear them! Let’s get into the Kiko haul.

Water Eyeshadow | 208 Light Gold

After seeing Taylor Jane talk about these a while ago, I knew I had try one. I opted for the shade 208 which is a really beautiful light gold. Not only can this be used on the eyes, but I’ve heard talk about these being great for highlighter too. You can use them wet or dry depending on what kind of finish you’re after. The packaging is sleek black little box that has a mirror on the inside.

Arctic Holiday Metal Eyeshadow | 02 Burgundy Aurora

This is part of the Christmas collection, and like always I was drawn in by the pretty packaging and the stunning colour of the shadow. I will say that I think this is expensive for what it is; considering it’s a single, and I paid £10.90 for it. I mean it is a really beautiful colour that seems to be really popular at the moment, but it is a little steep compared to the prices of everything else.

Glow Fusion | 01 Brilliant Champagne

I love highlighter, so of course I had to get one. I opted for the lightest shade in the Glow Fusion. 01 is a pale gold/ champagne colour. I have used this once since buying it, and I really like it. It’s not as blinding as I would usually go for, but it’s still really pretty. It contains no chunky glitter, and leaves a really nice buildable sheen on the cheeks.

Smart Fusion Lipstick | 405 Vintage Rose

Considering the lipsticks are only £3.90, I knew I wanted to try one. I got two shades, and this one is 405 Vintage Rose. These lipsticks are creamy, so it’s pretty obvious they won’t last all day, but they’ll be comfortable to wear. Vintage Rose needs building up, as it’s creamy and a little sheer at first. After a few layers you get a fuller colour.

Smart Fusion Lipstick | 432 Hazelnut

The other lipstick I got is Hazelnut. It’s the same formula as Vintage Rose, but this one is more of rosy brown nude. It seems more pigmented than the other one, but it is still the creamy formula. It’s not as dark as it is in the bullet, but it’s still a pretty colour.

That is everything I got from Kiko! Like I mentioned at the beginning; I would love to hear your favourites.

Thank you for reading!

    I always go into KIKO and end up walking out with nothing. I have tried their BB Cream and their nailpolishes which I really enjoyed. They do have some gems in their Limited Edition collections like a cream blusher I once tried. The water eyeshadows look stunning! I must pick one up xx Nikita

    Kiko is such a lovely and affordable brand, I place an order a few months ago and I bought 5 or 6 lipsticks, they were like 1 pound each so I couldn’t leave them behind!! They had some beautiful plum and berry shades and I fell in love with them!! xx


    • 17th December 2017 / 7:51 pm

      They really are! £1 each?! That is such a good deal; I totally don’t blame you for getting that many and the colours sound good too xx

    That’s a lovely Kiko haul! I have quite a few faves from the brand; next time definitely try their lip liners (those that look like Charlotte Tilbury’s liners) and eyeshadow sticks (those that look like By Terry but in a black packaging). Both are my go to and I use them nearly on a daily basis. I love the look of that holiday eyeshadow, colour is so pretty!

    I definitely think that Kiko are an underrated brand in the beauty industry. Their water shadows are so beautiful plus their shade range is great too. Their products are so inexpensive I love it. I definitely need to get myself in one of their stores soon.

      They really seem like it; it seems like not many people talk about it. I hope you manage to get to a store soon xx

  12. 18th December 2017 / 7:37 pm

    I friggen looove Kiko! But have to say I’ve always thought of them as being affordable; £10.99 for a single shadow is preeettty steep! Those lipstick shades you picked are sooo gorgeous.
