So, KIKO has been a well known brand for a long time now, and I’ve been meaning to try it for a couple of years but never really…well, never really got around to it!
I’ve seen a lot of mentions of it on YouTube especially, with a lot of KIKO products appearing in monthly favourites etc., and the overwhelming majority of YouTubers seem to love the brand for being such great quality for a really reasonable price point! A few weeks ago I visited the KIKO shop in Newcastle and decided to see what all the fuss was about!
|DOUBLE DARE Eyeshadow & Eyeliner – 01|
I’d been eyeing up a couple of things online in their sale, but the minimum spend for online ordering was £25. As I hadn’t tried the brand before, I didn’t want to commit to buying so much (I would have got a LOT in the sale for £25 – they REALLY drop the prices!), so I decided to stop by the store and have a sniff around in person…
Before going into my opinion on the products, I just wanted to mention that during the initial visit, and all subsequent visits since, the staff have been so lovely! Not at all pressuring and really helpful if I ever I had anything to ask!
|FALSE LASHES CONCENTRATE Volume & Definition Top Coat Mascara – Black|
I tried a few different things during my first trip and came home with some sale mascara (WHICH I LOVE!) and an orange powder eyeshadow to try. Since then I have been back and bought quite a bit more from the sale and can honestly say I love and use every single thing!
|IN THE SHADE Eyeshadow & Kajal – 01|
The double-eyeshadow stick is my most recent purchase, and I love it! The darker mauve cream stick eyeshadow glides on beautiful and only took a couple of finger dabs to blend out to perfection! The other end is meant to be an eyeliner (or waterliner) but I used this on the inner corner and it was beautiful.
|BLENDING WAVE Multicolour Blush – 02|
I think my favourite product to date though is the blush! It’s a two-in-one (if you want to use both shades separately) but swished together they are beautiful! I’ve never had a more perfectly matched blusher for my skin tone and dryness – it’s just amazing! Not at all chalky and really easily controllable when you apply!
|SMOOTH TEMPTATION Lipstick – 01|
Let me know in the comments below if you’ve tried KIKO, what you tried and what you think of it!
Thanks for reading!
