I am very much obsessed with Kiko at the moment. I think it’s maybe just the joy of having a new makeup store in town to replace the affordableness of Beauty Crowd that I can experiment with. There’s just something really fun about playing with makeup and not spending £40 on every product.
They recently did a buy 3 get 3 free offer which was amazing and I’ve picked up lots of other pieces over this last few months which I’ve blogged about too. One of the first things I picked up was a complimenting lipliner and lipstick in a dark plum colour.
The smart lip pencil is so soft and buttery, it goes on really nicely has good colour payoff if you wanted to wear it just on it’s own. I matched this with the Unlimited Stylo in Burgundy which is also a lovely, creamy consistency with a dewy finish. My hair is currently auburn, so I might be committing a sin with that choice but I love it all the same.
For eyes I picked up the Fine Art Pencil in 01 Unique Butter to line my inner lash line for a more wide awake look. I also chose the Pearly Eye Base Primer as I’ve never used one before and I’ve been meaning to try one for a long time. It does give a really nice base and my shadow definitely lasts longer than usual. It’s very, very illuminating so I’ve been using it under my eyes too for a really bright look.
I picked up a pot of eyeliner to give it a try too. I’ve always used the same Rimmel one since I was a teenager but everyone seems to rave about these. However I put in on yesterday and by the end of the day it had smudged all over the place, so either I need more practise or it’s not particularly long lasting. Lastly I managed to grab a gold eyeshadow in 208 which I’ve been using as a highlighter and it gives a really gorgeous glow to the top of my cheekbones. Perfect for summer!
