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.
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!
