Keeping it luxe with Kiko Cosmetics 

I love Kiko Cosmetics – they’re on trend, well priced and keep releasing wonderful, well thought out collections. I’ve tried my fair share of products from the brand and I’ve always been impressed. I do find their entire range a little overwhelming at times (there’s a store in Leeds where many a swatch has been made) as there is so much to chose from.

I particularly love their limited edition collections, I find they’re always fun and keeping with current trends. So, it’s no surprise that when the stunning Summer Collection landed on my doorstep – I was pretty dosh darn excited. Firstly, that packaging tho *heart eyed emoji* – so luxe and high quality, it puts many a brand to shame.

Packaging aside, it’s a lovely collection with some top notch products from everyone’s favourite Italian makeup brand.

I have a soft spot for Kiko lip products so it’s no surprise I like the Mirage Stylo Lipstick in 09 Wanderlove Magenta* (£13.90) which is a super pigmented blue toned magenta shade that is creamy and comfortable on the lips. It’s a demi-matte finish with a long wearing, slightly glossy sheen. I adore the packaging of this too, it just screams high end but for an affordable price. Another lip product I really love is the Heatwave Lip Oil in 02 Vanilla* (£10.90) which gives just a hint of colour but really nourishes the lips, giving them a super plump and healthy sheen.

Eye wise, the collection includes the Endless Sky Volume Effect Mascara* (£12.90) which gives a great amount of length and volume to my sparse lashes. The tapered wand allows you to get into those harder to reach areas of the eye. I find the tip coats my bottom lashes well but the majority of the wand is a little too large. I’ve particularly enjoyed the In The Shade Eyeshadow & Kajal Duo in 04 Emerald / Petrol Green* (£9.90) which I have been using on my lower lash line for a deep, pop of colour. These are both beautifully pigmented and stay put once set.

The most beautiful product in the collection has to be the Desert Dunes Trio Baked Blush in Impulsive Mauve* (£16.90) which is a super pigmented, trip of blush shades that you can either use esperately or swished together. A little goes a long way with this blush as it’s easy to over do.

I am so impressed, once again with the latest offerings from Kiko. You’ll be glad to know there is currently a sale on and this collection is now 30% off!

What’s your favourite Kiko product?

Love, Kate xo
