Kiko Milano

Kiko Milano, certainly a new favourite of mine. I was pretty slow to come across Kiko and give them a  shot actually. I had passed their stores (especially in Regent Street) numerous times and never thought to even step foot inside. Thinking about it now, I assumed by their store front that they were a high end make up brand and pretty much unaffordable. How wrong was I. They're actually somewhere in between drug store and high end with their price range. Although I'm still not going to commit to £14.00 face moisturiser just yet.. but everyone has a their own budget. There's something for everyone no matter what you're willing to spend.

Back in November/December last year I purchased the smart fusion lipsticks 405 Vintage Rose and 434 Chestnut - both nude colours. Mostly being drawn to their price, at £3.90,  I knew it wasn't much to lose if I didn't like the formula. Kiko describes this line as rich and nourishing, this sums them up to a T. 

If you're after a really creamy texture, these lipsticks are just for you. I suppose a lot of people are put off by particular lipsticks because they're too matte and too drying. The deeper colour recently purchased (431 Chocolate) doesn't seem to glide on as easily and is slightly more drying but I still wouldn't dismiss this colour completely. Prepping for lip products is always a must too. Lush offer lip scrubs at £5.95 each, alongside this I use Carmex - the best lip balm in my opinion. A lot of high street brands offer lip primers, including Kiko, although I haven't yet tried and tested this! Perhaps worth a shot later on.

Now the eyeshadows, or what I've decided to use as a highlighter and bronzer, were an absolute steal at £1.90! Oh, also worth mentioning that their sales are beyond ridiculous. If their prices weren't already low enough, the sales will have you on a serious shopping spree. 

The eyeshadows are 03 Metallic Bronze and 12 Metallic Rosy Sand. Both so highly pigmented, creamy and buildable. Originally priced at £2.50, again you can't go wrong. Metallic Rosy Sand has been used on the inner corners of my eyes and has lasted all day, compared to many other eyeshadows and/or highlighters I've used. 

Kiko Milano has no doubt been a great addition to my ever growing makeup collection. Another trip to the store is definitely on the horizon. As well as purchasing online you can find your local Kiko store too, which I'd definitely recommend to swatch to your hearts content. With the vast array of beautiful colours they have to offer, as well as their skincare range, it's worth stopping by.
