Kiko Milano Make Up Review







Kiko Cosmetics very kindly sent me a gift voucher so I could pick out some make up so a few weeks ago I popped into my local Kiko Milano cosmetics store in Cambridge. I’d never heard of Kiko Cosmetics before so I felt really excited and intrigued to see what the brand had to offer. As soon as I entered the store I instantly knew I’d found my new favourite make up shop.

Kiko Milano are an Italian make up brand that have started to open shops around the UK, they stock professional make up and skin care products at affordable prices. Everything in Kiko screams class and sophistication.

So in this week’s blog post I’ll be reviewing the products I picked out.

Kiko Skin Evolution Foundation-£12.90
This foundation is the cheapest foundation Kiko stock It’s priced at £12.90 which is such a bargain price. The foundation comes in a wide range of shades to suit most people. I picked out shade Natural Rose it’s a medium coverage foundation which blends really well into the skin and it’s so easy to apply. The colour is so flattering and it’s not at all orange. I’ll definitely be trying out the other foundations Kiko has to offer.






Kiko Natural Concealer-£5.50
I was on the lookout for a concealer that I could use for contouring and this natural concealer caught my eye, it came in 3 shades so I picked out the lightest shade in Natural and it looks amazing with the foundation I picked out, it brightens up my eyes and adds a glow to my skin, I add It to my under eyes in triangle shapes, down the middle of my nose, my chin and forehead, it makes my skin look brighter and healthier, I absolutely love it!






Kiko Soft Focus Concealer-£7.50
You can use this Soft Focus Concealer for contouring as well as the natural concealer, it’ll work just as well to cover up blemishes. It’s a click pen style packaging so it’s really easy and simple to use and again I’m really happy with this concealer, it’s a good dupe of the ysl touche eclat. I have shade 01






Kiko Smart Lipstick-£2.50
The smart lipstick is the cheapest lipstick in Kiko priced at £2.50 BARGAIN! They have such a HUGE range of colours, I’m going to buy the whole set! It’s very pigmented and lasts quite a while on my lips, they’re not drying and help to keep lips moisturised. The packaging is nice and simple. I have shades 900, 904 & 918







Kiko Velvet mat satin lipstick-£5.00
This is my new favourite lipstick, I literally wear it all the time, I love the colour and it lasts ages on my lips. I’m so obsessed with mat lipsticks at the moment, I’ll be getting all the others colours to add to my collection. It’s not drying like a lot of mat lipsticks. It’s light and comfortable with high coverage. It also has a plumping action. I have shade 601





Kiko Precision Lip Pencil-£2.90
I was looking for a nude lip pencil to go with the nude lipsticks I chose so I decided on this Kiko Precision Lip Pencil in shade 302 it looks amazing with my Velvet Mat Satin Lipstick, it makes my lips look fuller and more defined, you can also use this on its own as a lip colour for a mat effect too. It’s a nice creamy consistency so it glides effortlessly onto the skin and you get a nice neat smooth line, it’s so easy to work with.






Kiko Volume Eyes Plus Active Mascara-£7.90
I really wanted to try a Kiko Mascara so I chose this volumising mascara, there’s such a huge range of different mascara’s it was hard to choose. I love volume so for me this was the obvious choice. The brush is nice and big so it coats every single lash even the hard to reach lashes and makes your eyes look so amazing, it adds length and volume easily and it doesn't go flaky once it’s dry, I’ll definitely be sticking to this mascara. Using this mascara is beneficial for your natural lashes too!

This innovative formula is enhanced with K2 Prolash Complex, a combination of active and clinically proven ingredients, offering surprising results. After 30 days of use, tested results show that eyelashes' average diameter increases more than 21 times when compared to traditional mascara.’







Kiko Quick Dry Nail Lacquer-£2.90
I love my nail polish so I had to try a Kiko nail polish, I chose 2 colours, a neutral colour & a bright colour. It’s nice & pigmented and it’s very fast drying. I Applied 2 coats to get a nice bold colour. It also lasts a very long time without chipping. I decided to choose nice neutral tone as nude shades are so hot right now & as summer is around the corner, I chose a nice bright pink colour, and you can’t go wrong with pink!





That's the end of my review, If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me! I can't recommend Kiko enough, i'm absolutely in love with this brand! you can check them out here: http://www.kikocosmetics.co.uk/

Spring Wishlist



Michael Kors Bracelet-Market Cross Jewellers 


Hi Ladies,

I've been poorly this week with a horrible cold & cough so I've not been able to do any fashion shoots, hopefully I'll get some photos done this weekend,

I have so many things I want to buy this S/S I've made a wishlist to share with you what I've been lusting over. Crochet is definitely going to be massive this Spring/Summer and I'm so exciting to experiment with styling crochet clothing. 

I'm also loving a lot of the lace trim dresses, perfect for summer bbq's and parties. 

What are you loving this season?
