KIKO MILANO Haul & First ImpressionSaturday, February 20, 2016
Finally found this brand in Hong Kong and I was so excited when I saw the display! I still had a few items that I forgot to pick up, but probably next time. KIKO, you need to come to Singapore soon. Let's move on the items I got and I will do a short first impression as I have yet to use all of them. I did swatch all the products and I will link all of them as well.
This is a mineral baked powder giving your skin a luminous finish. This is probably best suited for dry to normal skin. The powder is very finely milled and feels very soft. I can't wait to see how this will work for me. The packaging is so sleek and simple and it comes with a mirror so I foresee this will be a good compact to carry around in your makeup bag. I got this in the lightest shade - 01 Ivory.
This is also another illuminating product. I have yet to try this as well but when I swatched this at the store, it is very light weight and brightening. I got it in the lightest shade - 01 Light.
This has got to be one of the item that Kiko is most famous for. I got two of them in 200 Champagne - a taupe brown, and 208 Light Gold - a true gold; very popular highlight shade.
They do swatch beautifully but does not look as pigmented on the lids. That's quite a disappointment but does looks great when applied wet. Nothing a little Fix+ can't fix! I guess this will be a nice shimmery all over the lid shade on days that you just want something simple and not do too much work on your eyes.
This is something that I was very impressed with. As the name suggests, this is meant for long wear and it really is. It was so hard to remove after I swatched this and I regret not picking up more shades. I got a very simple brown shade that is suitable for daily use - 05 Rosy Brown.
I picked this up in 3 shades - 303 Tea Rose, 315 Intense Mauve, 307 Red Peach. These are super creamy and hydrating on the lips. They give a matte finish like any other lip liners but they are not drying at all. I can use this all over my lips as a lip colour and it will last a long time. Highly recommend these!
303 Tea Rose is a very neutral pink that looks very natural on the lips.
315 Intense Mauve is a dark mauve shade.
307 Red Peach is a orange neon red shade.
The packaging is to die for. So pretty! This lipstick is very creamy and hydrating on the lips and so far I am loving this. I got this in the shade 107 Mocaccino. Another neutral pink that goes very well with the the lip liner in 303 Tea Rose.
So excited to play around with all these goodies! Thanks for reading.
