Last week two gorgeous Kiko products popped through my letterbox and they already stole my heart. I love Kiko's baked blushers and nail polishes, but I was curious about the formula of their eye shadows, especially after seeing super pigmented swatches online. The limited edition Dark Heroine collection features many beautiful products, including lipsticks, eyeshadow palettes, highlighters, nail polishes and more. The products were released ages ago, but you can still buy them online and instore :)
Kiko Colour Impact Eyeshadow Palette 03 Bright Night Lights* £16.90
I am not scared to experiment with eye colour and this beautiful palette is right up my street. I am not sure, if I will use the bright pink shade (I probably will), but the rest of the colours are wearable and go nicely with my brown eyes. The formula of these is super pigmented and creamy and it applies like a dream. Even the slightly matte colours have a gorgeous consistency and blend easily. The lasting power of Kiko eyeshadows is really good and all the colours stay put all day with a primer. Perfect! My favourite colours in the palette are the bright green, the shimmery champagne colour and the dark purple. I created a makeup look with some of them and you can see it below. After trying Kiko's eyeshadow formula , I am planning to order some of their single colours, because a little birdie told me that they have many MAC dupes :)
Kiko Latex Like Lipstick 05 Seductive Jasper* £7.50
I love peachy shades on my lips and this beaut is perfect! The unique latex like formula of this lipstick gives a beautiful, shiny finish and creates an illusion of fuller lips. It feels very moisturising and comfortable on the lips and the colour lasts for around 3-4 hours. I am very impressed and I might order more shades in the future. I haven't tried anything similar before and I love the effect the lipstick creates on my lips. The range includes 6 shades: plum, magenta, fuchsia, red, peach and pink. If you happen to be in a Kiko store, I would definitely recommend swatching these. The formula is incredible!
