Kiko recently launched their Holiday 2017 Collection, titled ‘Arctic Holiday’ and includes three baked blushes.  I couldn’t resist picking up two of the blushes as they were soooo pretty.  The products themselves, the packaging and the outer box are so beautifully presented and look lovely.  I think these blushes would make wonderful gifts for any make-up lover or as a special treat for yourself.

Kiko 3D Hydra Lipgloss in Shade 26 Sparkling Hibiscus Pink

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Around Autumn last year, Kiko launched their new range of lip glosses: the Hydra Lip Gloss, touted as a ‘softening lipgloss for shiny, plumped lips’.  I purchased shade 26 Sparkling Hibiscus Pink to try when they came out and love the glossiness, pigment and non-sticky nature of the formula.  I recently purchased shade 16 Iridescent Ruby and love it just as much (let me know if you would like to see a post on this shade too).  It’s been a while since I have written a Kiko post so I thought it was time to put a post together on this fabulous product!

Adding a sweep of coloured eyeliner to an otherwise neutral eyeshadow look is a nice way to introduce colour to your make-up.  This technique is particularly nice if you fancy trying out colour but find it a little daunting. 

Tip: Sticking to neutral tones of eyeshadow also means you can experiment with different colours of liner.  Try purple, blue, bronze and silver for a twist on the same look.

I’m a huge fan of the Kiko Water eyeshadows and so I couldn’t resist picking up another one when they had a sale in store.  I just love the shimmery, candy pink hue of this particular Water eyeshadow.  I mixed it up a little by applying purple in the crease and and a silver liquid liner along the upper lashline.

Here are some exciting details on upcoming collections and products which I have come across this week:

Kat Von D make-up is now available in the UK and Ireland! The brand is available exclusively from Debenhams online.  You can see the products here.

QVC UK is now stocking Essie nail polish.  I am a huge fan of Essie nail polishes and so I was super excited to hear that QVC is now stocking the brand.  QVC often has incredible offers and exclusive shades and so I am looking forward to see what products they release.  You can view the Essie QVC UK pages here.

If you were a fan of the highly coveted Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette, then you might be excited to hear that the brand are planning to release a number of other Sweet Peach products.  Products mentioned on the Too Faced Instagram pages include: the Mini Sweet Peach Palette (sneak peek here), the Sweet Peach Glow Palette (sneak peek here) and the Papa Don’t Peach Blush Palette (sneak peak here).  Too Faced has also announced that they will be re-releasing the Sweet Peach Palette again in November (see more here).  Exciting!!!!

If you are on the lookout for a new mascara, all Kiko mascaras are currently reduced to £3.90.  That’s right, £3.90! I’m not sure how long the offer will last, so it’s worth having a look if you have always fancied trying Kiko mascaras.  The offer is available in store and online.  You can view Kiko mascaras here.

Kiko Super Colour and Lasting Precision Eyeliners

On a recent visit to the Kiko store, I picked up two different types of eyeliners: one of their new Lasting Precision Automatic Eyeliners and one of their Super Colour Eyeliners.  I’ve been really enjoying trying out Kiko make-up recently and these two products are no exception.  These products are highly pigmented, glide on easily and last all day – everything I look for from an eyeliner.  Oh, and did I mention that they are reasonably priced as well? Another win-win for me from Kiko!

When I was in the Kiko store recently, this particular shade really caught my eye.  That, and the fact that the nail polishes were reduced to £1 from £3.90! What a bargain! I hadn’t used the Kiko nail polishes before, so I had no idea whether or not it would be any good.  Well, after using this polish, I can say that they are amazing! Colour, shine and reasonable wear time (about 3 days for this shade), all for only £1.

I have been enjoying using my High Pigment Wet and Dry Eyeshadow in 84 Pearly Green (click here to read more about this shade) and so I picked up two more shades to try out when I was in store recently.  There is a good selection of colours in the High Pigment Wet and Dry Eyeshadow range and these two shades caught my eye.  I love orange and purple eyeshadows and these two products had micro sparkle through them, making them extra pretty.  I just couldn’t resist trying them out!

I recently posted about some new make-up purchases from Kiko, one of them being from their Water Eyeshadow range (click here to read the post).  I thought it would be fun to do a separate post just on the Kiko Water Eyeshadows, as I really love this particular product.

I have four Water Eyeshadows which are featured in this post: 219 Flamingo Pink (also featured here), 212 Emerald Green, 210 Golden Spring Green and 221 Cyclamen.

When I started creating this look, I wasn’t quite sure what combination I was going to come up with.  All I knew was that I wanted to try out the new Kiko 84 light green eyeshadow that I purchased recently.  I ended up using purple and peach shades alongside the green.  I think the combination is really fresh and spring-like, perfect for whenever you want something fun but soft on the eyes.

Here’s how to re-create this look:
