Mini Kiko Haul


These are the first products I have bought from Kiko, despite all the hype surrounding their collections, and I am honestly kicking myself for not trying their stuff sooner! I went into the Brighton store a few weeks ago and they had a sale on, so a lot of the stuff was half price. Luckily I managed to tear myself away with only a small bag and four items, round of applause please?
  


Immediately I was drawn to the huge array of eyeshadows, in particular the Water Eyeshadows, which are beautifully embossed and debossed into a water pattern. These shadows can be used wet and dry which is a massive bonus as I like to use most of my shadows wet to create a more intense colour. The shade I picked up was 205 'Chocolate', which is a gorgeous deep, warm brown, which can be used to create a brown smokey eye, or even a more natural look if just applied in the crease.  
Sorry I couldn't resist using this before I photographed it *smack on the wrist*! But the wear on these shadows is really good, however I do find that they give a small amount of fall down during application, but this can easily be cleaned up, and with such high pigmentation it was expected.


Onto the lipliners and I went a bit mad and picked up three. They were reduced to around £1.90 which I thought was an absolute bargain, and I am totally getting into just wearing lip liner and no lipstick, so these were good investments. I've been all over nude lips at the moment so was immediately drawn to 700, a brown toned nude, which is my perfect "your lips but better" colour. I have been pairing it with my MAC Taupe Lipstick, and the combination is beautiful.
Perhaps the most daring pick was 715, which is a very pale lavender colour, and something that is definitely not my everyday colour. However, that is what drew me to it. It is definitely something I will have to work with to make sure I don't make myself look ill, but there's something about it I really like.
My final selection was 710, which is the perfect Autumn/Winter lip shade. It is a very gothic dark purple with a hint of red. It's one hundred percent more my lip colour than 715, and I have already got a great deal of use out of it. The lasting power of this one in particular is amazing, and it won the battle of eating and drinking. Saying this, the staying power of all three liners is insane, and the application was very soft for such cheap liners.

From L-R: 710, 700, 715, 205 dry, 205 wet
