KIKO MILANO was a brand I’d heard lots about but never actually owned anything from. That was until a branch of KIKO was opened at Lakeside earlier this year and now I can’t get enough of it.
How beautiful is this whole collection?! KIKO you’ve got it spot on with this one.
The KIKO Trend Collection is a Limited Edition Summer 2016 Collection inspired by the passion to travel. KIKO collaborated with designer Ross Lovegrove to create this beautiful collection. The British designer, known for his futuristic forms drawn from nature, has interpreted the collection’s theme by bundling each product. Ross Lovegrove captures the essence of breeziness, elegance, femininity, sensuality and functionality, highlighting the packaging by a metallic rose gold hue, embossed by a pattern of circles, that expresses his signature style, while still maintaining KIKO’s aesthetics.
I think he’s done a bloody amazing job, I’m such a sucker for rose gold as it is so this packaging ticks all the boxes for me, it really is beautiful. It was the packaging that actually drew me into the store in the first place.
In my little KIKO Trend Collection stash I currently own…
Desert Dunes Baked Bronzer (£22.90) in Warm Malange, which is now my favourite bronzer & that’s saying something. It’s perfect for my skin, when we were on holiday a few weeks ago this is all I wore on my face. It gives a gorgeous warm glow, it blends out really well and oh my the smell… it smells good enough to eat.
Endless Sky Volume Effect Mascara (£12.90) I was in the market for a new mascara and as I normally stick to the same couple, I thought I’d give this one ago and so far it’s not disappointing. The brush is made up of different fibers and it applies the product evenly without clumping at all, I have no fall out at all whilst wearing this and after curling my lashes it makes them look fabulouso!
Mirage Lip Stylo (£12.90) I absolutely love love love these lipsticks. The consistency is creamy & luscious. It has a magnetic clasp which I love and they feel really high end to the touch. There is currently 16 Lipstick in their range and I have No11 Soul Blackcurrant which is totally not my shade but I love it and I also have No14 Bohemian Sienna which is a deep wine colour (it looks really pink on their website!) I love these lippies and the only negative I have is that they have is that the shape of the lipstick makes it kinda difficult to apply so I have to use my lip brush. Other than that, I love them and since taking these pictures I’ve already bought another two. (No3 & No1)
Lastly I picked up the Heatwave Lip Oil (£10.90) in Vanilla. Now I suffer from really dry lips a result of the Stem Cell Transplant I had so I am always smothering them in something or other and so this Lip Oil has become a fast favorite and I apply this all the time at the mo, it’s got a a subtle hint of Vanilla but nothing too overpowering. They also have Coconut & Grapefruit flavours, yummy!
Pay day is next week and KIKO is the first place I shall be visiting… I need to try out their DD Cream, the Baked Blushers and the eyeshadow sticks!
