KIKO Milano – Haul/Review

After a much needed time off from – well, everything – Im back with a review of my new (FAV) makeup brand, KIKO MILANO! The brand has only recently come into Dubai and tbh, I’m so impressed with their products, quality and most importantly – the price!

I managed to pick up quite a bit of products over the last 2 months – if you follow me on instagram you would have seen my ‘haul’, and here I am with a full on review of everything! (almost everything..)

UNIVERSAL FIT HYDRATING FOUNDATION

This is ONE hydrating foundation, its easily one of the best foundations I own. I’ve been reaching out to this one in particular so much because of how hydrating it is! The consistency makes it very easy to blend and it gives me medium coverage. As you can see the product is in a tube which makes it so much easier to control the amount of product needed and makes it travel friendly too! woo!

The product comes with a little pamphlet which explains the ingredients a lil bit more, so this foundation has aloe vera, glycerin and vitamin e too! HOW HYDRATING DOES THAT SOUND?

Its so light on the skin and its very very blendable and applies like a dream with both a sponge and a brush too. It retails for AED 35 (but I got it on sale for AED 25) – Bang for your buck or what?

KIKO SMART LIPSTICKS 

So this lipstick promises to be really nourishing and comfortable on the lips. I picked up two – 914 Amaranth which is a berry sort of colour and 935 which is a shade of brown.

The lipsticks are of a satin/ slightly metallic finish which is nice and unique compared to the very popular mattes (which i’m also SO into, btw). It claims to be long lasting colour and it does live up to its claim as at the end of the day Im usually left with a very nice tint of the shade! I believe I got these lipsticks on sale at AED 17 each (if im not mistaken)

SMART LIP PENCILS

My GO-TO lip pencils at the moment. They are matte, full coverage, long lasting and most importantly – so very creamy! This is such an amazing product I would definitely recommend it and literally tell everyone I know to HEAD TO KIKO AND BUY IT!

I bought 3 shades – 705 which is a coral orange shade, 712 which is a pink mauve shade and 715 which is a very comfortable and wearable shade of purple! I got these on sale for AED 9 each and its quite possibly the best 9 bucks I’ve spent!

DESIGN FLOWER ENRICHED BRONZER

Last, but definitely not the least I got this BEAAAUUTTTIIFFFULLL bronzer! I got the shade Couture Sienna, the darkest shade. I really love this bronzer because it suits my skintone quite nicely and blends like a dream!

It has a very soft and velvety texture and the colour is very easily buildable, most probably because the formula is enriched with petal extracts. The lighter shade is to add some radiance and glow to the look, but for the most part, the bronzer is pretty matte – which I love!

Lets take a moment to appreciate the beauty of this packaging! It was designed by designer Ross Lovegrove, who was inspired by Black velvet! I JUST LOVE THE MATTE BLACK FINISH! How gorgeous?!

I was super lucky enough to get this product on sale for AED 49, which was so beyond worth every penny because of the quality of the product! So in love with it all!

And thats the end of my little haul/review of what I’ve recently bought from KIKO Milano. Im definitely going to be trying more stuff out (Im already eyeing a couple of things muahaha)! Hope I’ve made you want to go try this brand out (its so worth it, thank me later!)

Winter Wishlist

unnamed-5

WINTER IS OFFICIALLY UPON US

(and so is my sore throat, blocked nose and my winter wishlist!)

So I’ve really been into the Army green coloured tops and shirts lately and since winter has technically begun, I’ve really been feeling the army green jackets and laced brown shoes lately and if I get these in a good deal soon my outfit for my new years eve coldplay concert is SORTED!

In terms of makeup – I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect eyeshadow palette and after lots of swatching and research into the too faced palettes I’ve kinda set my mind onto the ABH Modern Renaissance  palette as from what I saw, the quality of those shadows matched no other. They blend so easily and I just LOVE the colours!

I’ve recently discovered KIKO Milano here in Dubai, and I’ve gotta say Im so so so impressed by their quality and prices of products. I felt a bit overwhelmed and didnt really buy anything yet, but after some research (as always, obviously) Im definitely leaning towards giving their full coverage concealer a shot. And as for fragrance, I’ve rediscovered the Chanel No. 5 and its just bliss.

Metallics are so in right now in terms of shoes, lip products and bags – but the only thing I’m into are the shoes and bags! I’ve already got a pair of silver flats (which are super versatile by the way – as surprising as it may seem), and I proudly overwear them all. the. time. Really into the metallic cross body bags, they really do put a whole outfit together.

As for the glasses, my current ones are so beat up and I just need a new pair quite bad.

Thats all for now! Also guys, I’ve been quite consistent with posting up on my social medias lately so do check my links out!
