Hope you are all having a great week end, are we all ready for the return of the X Factor? I certainly am, waiting for the big outfits battle in between Cheryl and Mel!
Today I wanna talk you about my latest purchase from my favourite cosmetic brand ever, Kiko Milano Cosmetic!
The gorgeous spring and summer collections, the "Boulevard Rock" and "Life in Rio" are on sale at the moment, with remarkable prices reductions.
All the products that I bought have been outstanding in terms of quality and are extremely versatile so I really wanna share with you what I think about this stuff that I can tell you, will not be just a trend of a season but is gonna be a constant part of my kit.
This is what I got:
Life in Rio face duo brush
I was sold on this brush as soon as I saw the unusual shape of one of the two ends, it intrigued me straight away.
The flat side is a very common but always useful foundation brush, for compact and liquids has been precise, not scratchy or too soft, no shedding reported so you really couldn't ask for more.
I like the defined shape that allows me accurate touch ups around the eyes or the lips.
The second end is the interesting one...
Yes, you spotted it right, it has exactly the same shape than the Estee Lauder Sculpting Brush
that has been basically omnipresent on Instagram recently.
The half moon design of this end of the brush is supposed to help you contouring like a pro just placing the concave part on the cheekbones and swiping up and down.
Does it work? It does, both with cream or powder products and for £11.80 it's a hell of a bargain.
Boulevard Rock Colour Shock Eyeshadow 103
The Colour Shock eyeshadow is a frequent repromotion of Kiko's summer collections and it doesn't surprise me really, considering it's the most water/sweat/hot resistant cream eyeshadow I have ever tried.
It's a cream/gel consistency but you have to be very quick to blend it or it will set and you risk of removing patches of colour with the brush.
This particular shade is a kind of taupe/grey, intense as you seen it in the swatch with silver sparkle inside.
It's the perfect I-have-only-got-one-min-to-do-my-eye-makeup product that will make your busy life very easy.
I foresee endless use of this and it's only 3 quids!
Creamy Touch Eyeshadow Pencil Duo 101
Here is my little jewel and the reasons are simple:
- it has got a creamy texture that does not stick or melts into the crease
-it's easy to blend
-the shades are just spot on for an every day use, cream shade on the lid, purple in the corner and off you go
-the cream end can be used as highlight under the brow bone and both can be used as a base for powder eyeshadows
As you can see the finish is totally matte.
So if you wanna grab yourself a bargain and enjoy some make up to play with, here is the place to be.
Now let me go and drool over the new collection..
