Hello everyone, back again with another haul and this time its from KIKO! This is a combination of online and...much to my delight in store too because I finally have a local store yaaaaaaay. I love online shopping more than the average person, but theres just something ever so delightful about being able to swatch makeup products yourself, see the colours and feel the formulas y'know?! I could have spent another half an hour in the store, but my younger sister and little cousin were shooting me the most bored side eyes so I had to hurry it up a little bit haha. Right onto the haul (and be prepared for a large amount of khaki hehehe).
One thing I like about the Kiko website is that they always seem to have something on sale when you go online. So I decided to purchase the Soft Light powder in 02 which was only £3.50, reduced from £11.90! This shade looked quite yellow and brightening from the few online photos I had found and thats always what I look for in a powder. I was also drawn to the fact that it is a 'Mineral powder formulated with 90% ingredients of natural origin.' So far so good, its very soft on the skin and doesn't look cakey in the slightest. I've yet to use it under the eyes properly but I'll report back soon.
Another product that I got for a bargain price is the Kiko rebel bouncy blush in 01 velvety peach, which only cost me £4.90 rather than the original £9.90 price. This blush is from the rebel romantic collection and I adore the packaging, it is in this cute little compact size with a great mirror and that rose gold packaging? YESSSS PLEASE. In terms of shade, as beautiful as it appears in the pan on my skintone it doesn't show up as strong as I had hoped. I was expecting more of a pink, the way it looks like in the pan, however its a light peachy colour and In order for a peach colour like this to look good on my skin, I have to layer it up quite a lot which does put me off a little. Despite this it looks stunning with a more dramatic eye so I will be keeping it in my collection as I don't have a lot of 'nude' blush shades.
Moving on to the eyes, here you will see my love for khaki escalate, I was smitten with their vast collection of one of my favourite colours! Having said that, the Kiko eyeshadow in 116 pearly forest green
Moving on to the pencils in this haul, I purchased the Kiko intense colour long lasting eyeliner in 10
I also purchased one more of the Kiko long lasting stick eyeshadows in 07
And finally we have the miscellaneous items, with the first being the Kiko eyebrow fibres coloured mascara in 05 (which is only on sale for the lighter shades). I've only used this once and didn't notice any type of fibres, but I'm not passing judgement on this stuff yet. Kiko lipliners get a lot of hype and I do have a few in my collection, but I've just not been wowed by them. When I saw this gold range in store however, I was instantly drawn to it and before long I was swatching to my hearts content. I definitely feel like these have been inspired by the Charlotte Tilbury lipcheats and I am not complaining, look at that beautiful pencil! I purchased the creamy colour comfort lip liner in 303 £5.90. BEAUTIFUL, they aren't lying when they use the word creamy, it glides onto the lips and it super pigmented. My only criticism of this range is the lack of beautiful neutral shades. The only light ones were just too light, so please kiko expand the colours! Because of this I went for a shade I knew I was lacking, a brighter pink shade which adds a good amount of definition and brightening up!
Finally a bit of a risk the Kiko natural concealer in 06 £5.50, I went for this colour because in store it looked like a great orange corrector colour. I've used it a few times and I have to say I like it, though its a little deeper than I would have liked. BUT the formula is great, it's thin enough to handle concealer over the top, yet opaque enough to correct darkness. Again a report shall be coming your way in a few weeks.
Swatches: lipliner 303, concealer 06, bouncy blush 01, stick eyeshadow 07, eyeshadow 116 heavily swatched, eyeliner in 10 and water shadow in 209.
