I say it all the time, but I adore Kiko! Amazing makeup at such affordable prices. They recently opened a store in Glasgow as well and I had to pay it a cheeky visit obviously. It looks incredible! One of my favourite things about Kiko is the fact that they regularly release limited edition collections that are simply stunning! The newest one is called BFF- Best Friends Forever and it came out just in time for Valentine's Day. Great marketing move, as even those who are anti-valentines will love the theme and could be tempted to buy some pieces for their bestie!
The collection consists of a selection of nail colours, lip liners, lipsticks, a face powder, mascara & kajal set, a makeup pouch and a perfume set with two heart shaped bottles of fragrance. All beautiful and heart/pink/red themed.
I was kindly sent some pieces to try out and I am not gonna lie, I am besotted with the lip products!
First, we have the Endless Love Lipstick*(£5.90). The packaging is very luxurious, featuring heavy metal casing with a little heart on the cap and... the actual lipstick bullet is heart shaped too! Whaaaat? It is beautiful! At £5.90, this is a must have!
The formula is nice and creamy and glides on like a dream, leaving my lips really soft and nourished. The texture is velvety smooth, with a satin finish and offers great pigmentation and colour payoff.
I have a fuchsia pink shade called Romance Cyclamen and it is lovely! There are 6 colours to choose from in total, including nudes, pinks and a red.
Now onto my favourite bits, the Endless Love Lip Pencils*(£3.90). I have a lip pencil obsession and these have one of the best formulas I have ever tried! They apply easily and feel comfortable on the lips, but stay put for ages and don't transfer at all, which is amazing for a mum who loves giving kisses :) haha.
As you can see, I used the nude shade, before I got to photograph it :) Couldn't wait! The red shade is called Pinky Magenta and the nude plum shade is called Passion Plum. Each lip liner matches one of the heart shaped lippies.
I am wearing Passion Plum here. It looks slightly darker in real life, but it is simply stunning! It has a bit of sparkle in it as well, which is only visible in a closeup. I have been using it every single day since it arrived!
Last but not least, we have the True Love Nail Lacquers*(£3.90). Available in 3 colours, these feature a unique three-dimensional effect and a matte finish. You only need one coat for opaque coverage and the final effect feels kind of gritty, a bit like the Nails Inc Leather Effect polishes.
We have Red Kiss on the left and Fuchsia on the right.
Overall, lovely collection and the quality of the actual products is outstanding as always!
