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!)
