So this is a review on KIKO Cosmetics which I was recently been introduced with. I went to Westfield Stratford City and purchased some of the Kiko products from their shop and I have never tried this brand before.
First of all prices are quite reasonable and quality is competitive.
KIKO Mixing Solution (http://www.kikocosmetics.co.uk/make-up/eyes/eyeshadows/Mixing-Solution/p-KM0031000200000) £3.90
First up, is the the Mixing Solution for pigment Loose Powder eyeshadow. It's a liquid wated based product that maximises blendability. What you do it, drop one pump of water on eye shadow and use a brush and apply on your eye lid for intense resulted pigmentation. You also also use the eye shadow colour as an eye liner if appropriate brush has been used.
similar product , Illamasqua Sealing Gel £12.50 (http://www.illamasqua.com/shop/sealing-gel)
Round face Brush 106 £12.90 (http://www.kikocosmetics.co.uk/accessories/brushes/face-brushes/Brush-Face-106/p-KM0050100310600)
I have been using this brush to blend my foundation and it doesn't its job nicely. Though I still think for the price of £12.90, I would rather got for a Real Techniques brush. I don't normally like ordinary foundation brush as I find them quite small and takes forever to blend. So this products has now become one of my everyday essential now :)
Water Eyeshadow Shade 211 (http://www.kikocosmetics.co.uk/make-up/eyes/eyeshadows/Water-Eyeshadow/p-KM00312001) £8.90
I got this product in shade 211 which is a lovely shimmery green. From only one swatch on the picture, you can see how pigmented the eye shadow is. I bought it from sale (only shade 211 was available) and these are normally priced at £8.90. I am surprised to see the quality of the product and looking forward to buy other shades too.
KIKO Smart Lipticks (http://www.kikocosmetics.co.uk/make-up/lips/lipsticks/Smart-Lipstick/p-KM00201005) £2.50 each
As you can see from the picture and swatches I have picked 3 lovely shades and there were on sale too! I am a Mac and YSL lipstick fan but when I swatched them in Kiko store, I literally fell in love with it. For £2.50, their pigmentation is unbelievable and wasn't expecting this sort of quality at all!
Shades I purchased (in order as picture shown) :
- Shade 42 : Lovely sweet creamy pink, sits on lips quite nicely.
- Shade 78 (nude) : I have been looking for a nice Nude lipstick for a while and you can tell I have found one :) however, this one's quite matte and not as much pigmented as the other shades due to it being a Nude shade.
- Shade 68: Very similar to Mac Bombshell. I now have 2 of the very similar shades :)
Kiko Colour Splash Multi-toned Bronzer £13.90 (http://www.kikocosmetics.co.uk/make-up/face/bronzers/Colour-Splash-Multi-Tone-Bronzer/p-KC01901051)
Another lovely product I picked which I am happy that've I purchased this :)
First of all, the packaging is cute and inside it has 3 different Bronzer shades and a mirror. I pick the colour 'Hillarious Honey 01'. The shade in the middle has a little shimmer effect , you can use this on it's own or mixed them all together and apply with kabuki/fluffy brush on your face. It's gives a nice natural glow and gets a thumbs up from me :)
