Recently I was introduced to a brand called ‘KIKO‘. A friend of mine had visited Milan and on her return told me about this Milanese makeup brand called KIKO. Their products looked really good and their price amazing. I thought nothing more of this brand until I was in London and spotted one of their stores. KIKO is not available in Ireland yet but you can order online here.
I had spent the morning travelling so when the makeup artist offered to show me a few products and do my makeup of course I couldn’t say no! So lets take a look at some of the products I bought.
I love any product that will brighten up my skin. I find especially in the winter that my skin can look tired and dull so that little extra help from skincare products always helps! KIKO have a serum called ‘Glowing Game’ which I can only describe as a little piece of heaven in a jar! This serum instantly brightens and makes your skin feel smooth. This product also promises to reduce the appearance of pores, which is does. I am so conscious of the pores on my cheeks and nose and I hate the way foundation sinks into them. Apply a layer of this before your foundation and you wont have this problem. This is the main reason I love this product. It also smells great and has a touch of illuminator in it too. All round a great product and ONLY €13.90. You can buy it here.
While I was in KIKO I decided I would try loads of new products that I don’t already have. I love experimenting with beauty products. I know I should have been using an eye cream before this and recently after getting a facial my therapist recommend that I use an eye cream as the skin around my eyes were very dehydrated. I tried KIKO ‘Skin Trainer Eyes’ which reduces dark circles and puffiness. When I am tried it is very obvious by my eyes. They are droopy and feel incredibly heavy. When I got home from my trip to London I used this product after a night out and it felt amazing. The ‘Skin Trainer Eyes’ comes with a special metal applicator making it easy to apply and leaving a fresh and soothing cold sensation on affected areas. This icy effect helps reduce puffiness and dark circles. This product is €18.90 and you can buy online here.
While doing my makeup the girl asked me did I want to go for a strong lip and I was so hesitant. I told her I am always afraid to go for a strong lip as I hate when the lipstick starts to fade or else when the lipstick bleeds, so I stay away from strong colours. She gave me some advice on wearing strong lips and also showed me their ‘Invisible Lip Liner’. I have to say I did not think it would work but I was amazed! This liner is basically a primer for your lips but you also place it on the outside of your lips on your skin. I have use this product a few times and really love it! So handy and it doesn’t matter if you don’t have a steady hand as it is invisible – genius! At €5.90 a girl really cannot go wrong, see it for yourself online here.
Has anyone else tried KIKO? Let me know what you think?
