You know how much I love Kiko, so whenever I get the opportunity to go to one of the few shops in the UK, I make the most of it! I thought I would give you the low down on what I got and what I thought of it.
I picked up this gold eyeshadow from The Artist collection; I already own the green one which I really enjoyed using and featured in my Chanel inspired Spring make up look. This colour has a lovely pearlescent sheen, it creates a great base to build on or for a simple but pretty make up look, I wear it on it’s own with lots of black mascara.
I had wanted this liquid highlight pen for ages but they were always sold out, so luckily they had a couple of the shade Virtuous Gold when I last went in. I originally wanted the Dynamic Coral shade but that wasn’t available. The colour of this one is really flattering and I think it’ll look even better on sun-kissed skin in the summer as it will really compliment lots of bronzer and a sun tan!
I still wear it at the minute though, it’s not hugely pigmented which works for a day to day basis and I usually add powder highlight over the top for an evening look and having this underneath means my highlight doesn’t budge all night!
Finally, I picked up the Lips & Cheeks pencil in Free Flamingo from the new summer collection. I have mentioned before that I love the Bobbi Brown Art Sticks and they were featured in my April Favourites, so I wanted to see how this would compare as it’s a much more budget friendly option! The jumbo pencil is great for quickness and ease of application but it’s a really creamy texture so it does smudge quite easily before it dries down which takes around half an hour. Once it’s on it lasts so well, I only had to top up after I had eaten dinner. I think the Bobbi Brown version is easier to apply and lasts longer, I would definitely recommend a lip liner with the Kiko one.
It also comes with a pencil sharpener like the Bobbi Brown Art Sticks do, which is a great plus.
