• KIKO Cosmetics // review •

Genuinely, I can't even get over the quality of these KIKO cosmetics.

They perform like high-end products, with the price tag of high-street brands. I was never expecting them to be that incredible as, to start with, the lipsticks were no more than £7 each, but this make up brand is just so up and coming, and for so many reasons that I can now attest to. So we'll start with the Watercolour Eyeshadow in 200 Champagne. This highly pigmented, long-wearing and creamy eyeshadow can be used with both a damp and dry eyeshadow brush. I tend to use a flat brush to really pack on the colour and this works really well. It's a bronzey, goldy type of colour that catches the light so beautifully and is on the more metallic side. I honestly receive so many compliments when I wear this eyeshadow and I usually just wear it all over the lid and in my crease for a no-fuss, easy make up look. Another eyeshadow I have been absolutely obsessed with is the Supreme Eyeshadow in 01 Posh Crystal Rose. Genuinely if you're looking for an eyeshadow that will brighten up your dark, puffy, 'morning eyes', then this one will do it. The formula is cream and it dries to a powder finish, the colour is an iridescent, shimmery pearl colour and it is truly stunning on the eye lids and inner corner. I wear this alone and with other eyeshadows on top and it really makes them pop. Again, it is very long wearing and will last you all day. It's just perfection and I will definitely be picking up some more of the colours in this range.

A lipstick that I usually reserve for weekends is the Smart Lipstick in 912 Crimson Red. This is a highly pigmented lipstick that feels smooth and creamy on the lips, is moisturising yet not tacky, and is very long-wearing. The colour is so vibrant and bright; it's perfect for a night out and I'll be rocking this at my work's Christmas party. I think it's a really unusual colour, as it's not quite red yet not quite pink. With a simple smokey eye, it'll look perfect. For my every day nude, I've been loving the Luscious Cream Lipstick in 500 Shell Rose. It's a stunning pinky-nude and looks really beautiful with lined lips. I'm really into my nudes at the moment and this one ticks all the boxes; it's the perfect colour as it's not too light, not too dark and is a very flattering, girly pink colour; the formula is incredible, as it's creamy yet lasts a few hours before it needs reapplying; and this lipstick moisturises my lips and doesn't cling to any dry patches. I really recommend this rich, pigmented lipstick - I'm wearing it every single day of the week now!
So, obviously, rave reviews for KIKO cosmetics!
I now see what all of the fuss is about and I can't wait to get my hands on more.
Have you tried anything from the brand?
Am I missing out on something amazing?

  6. Even the pale more nude colours look bold and shiny on the skin, I really like the look of this brand. I love how many good value cosmetic brands there are to choose from these days. It used to be like, Collection 2000 from Boots or nothing.

  7. The bronzey shade is just stunning! I haven't tried anything by KIKO yet :-( xx
