Kiko Makeup Haul

Kiko is an Italian brand of makeup that was unfortunately not available in Ireland when I heard about it but I have a good friend in Italy who kindly allowed me to place an order and get it delivered to her address is Italy. Great Christmas present :) Thanks Katie :) I recently checked their website and I believe they have added Ireland to the list of countries that they now deliver to :D Happy Days! 

So here's what I got:

Let's start with the base I guess :P I purchased the Skin Tone Concealer Primer in 03 Peach. It says that it acts as a concealer but if your blemishes are more than a couple you will need to use a thicker concealer over it. It's still a nice product though that helps to improve skin tone slightly and acts as a nice base for foundation. 

One of my favourites is the Colour Correction Concealer Wheel! It comes with four different concealer colours and a highlighter at the centre. The concealers are nice and creamy and give great coverage. A little goes a long way :) If your unsure of what concealer colours do what check out this post: http://cats-lashes.blogspot.ie/2013/11/concealer-confusion-corrective.html

Moving to the eyes I got two of the Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows in 04 and 07. These are amazing! The eyeshadow lasts all day and the colours are highly pigmented. I need to get more haha 

Kiko also do a clic system similar to the kind offered by the likes of MAC and Inglot. I bought the Eyes Clics 04 which is a palette that gives you space for four of the Infinity eyeshadows. I love the look of the palette! 

I ordered four shadows to go with the palette and picked colours that I wouldn't necessarily use every day but ones that I would use when I'm in a more adventurous mood :P The eyeshadows are a decent size and the colour pay-off is great!! The number of the ones I got are 202, 207,  225 and 230. I will definitely purchase more and will probably go for more of the tones that I would use every day. I don't think you can ever have enough nude shades....can you? :P The only problem with the clic system is that the shadows tend to slide out if you open the palette on an angle. There is no magnet system to hold them in place like you would get with Inglot. It is still a great product, you just have to be careful opening it.

I added two lipsticks to the cart :) They are two different shades of pink. One is from the Smart Lipstick range in 903 which has a slight shine to it (bottom swatch in picture) and the other is Velvet Mat - Satin Lipstick in 613 (top swatch in picture) which you might have guessed is a nice matte lipstick. I love both shades. I pay more attention to doing my eyes and want to use lipstick more and these are great as the colours are nice and they are not too expensive :) 


For the cheeks i got a limited edition shade from the AW13 Dark Heroine Collection. It is a Velvet Stick Blush in Mauve. I really like the shade and creme blushes are great if you just want to get a hint of colour on your cheeks without it being too strong. 

I also got the Make Up Fixer. I'v only used it a couple of times (keep forgetting I have it!) so can't say if it's amazing or not. You spray it over your face once you've finished applying your make up and it helps to keep everything in place for the day. It feels nice on the skin and dries fast.

I got one nail lacquer in Strawberry Pink. Great shade for spring and a great price :) You get an idea of the shade from my blurry pic :P 

It is a really nice brand and reasonable prices! I would definitely recommend it and will be stocking up on more during my trip to Italy in May :D
