The Kiko Brand Focus.

Friday, 20 November 2015

Kiko Cosmetics, if you have not heard of this brand before, is an Italian make-up range that is now available here in the UK. This brand aims to be all about new cutting edge technology and provide a good value for money selection of products. I have only a few of their make-up options* to introduce you to, but realistically they have a huge amount to offer for all skin types, colours preference, tones and textures.

This brand has recently popped up here in Bristol and it wasn't until I was emailed about it, did I know about its opening. The store itself is great looking and judging by the amount of people inside when I popped in, its really taken off here! After I had visited and got a feel for what they were about, I was also offered a couple of products to try out. I can't begin to describe how delighted I was with the bits I was sent too as they really allowed me to test something from a variety of areas. 

The most amazing news about this brand however is the price tag. Its not quite as cheap as MUA Cosmetics (I still dont know how they do it), but all of the products are really good value for money taking into account their longevity, texture, pigment and also they fact they come in a fancy, sleek box too. I was very, very impressed by Kiko Cosmetics overall and have also written a little review for each of the products below so you know if it will also be a great product for you too.

Kiko Velvet Touch, Creamy Stick Blush in 03 Coral Rose* (£7.90

Admittedly, I'm more of a powder blush person myself as the application tends to be more even and less sticky, however after about my second application of this, I was sold. The texture of the blush itself is smooth, fast and easy to apply too which always a massive selling point for me while I constantly chose sleep over the extra 10 minutes getting ready in the morning. However, luckily the pigment wasn't too strong with this product either that it looked terrible but with it being almost an orange shade too, a natural and subtle  look is certainly what this blush gives you. Sadly however, the one issue I do have with this product is actually the functionality of the packaging, as once I had twisted the stick up, it would not twist back down and had to be pushed back into the case.

Kiko Volumeyes+ Active Mascara * (£7.90)

When it comes to eye products, I'm very careful with the brands I tend to use and with this in mind, I left the mascara til last when testing Kiko Cosmetics. When I had no reactions to the others however, I went for it and wow, was I impressed. The bristles on the wand itself catch even the smallest eyelashes while both coating and lifting them. The lift however didn't last quite as long as my other high street mascara but surprisingly, the boldness and definition of my lashline was definitely improved with this mascara.

Kiko Skin Tone Corrector Primer in Peach * (£9.90)

The last of my three products is this skin primer and tone corrector. Im a huge fan of primers in general as an even base is always my main priority when applying my makeup and primers make this so simple and easy to do. This Kiko Primer however is no different. Its medium consistency and coloured substance actually acts as a sort of light base in my opinion and really is quite similar in so many ways to the Bare Minerals Primer but for a fraction of the price. Overall, this is an amazing find and probably my favourite of the three however, its very slight shimmer is one aspect that i'd probably change, but once foundation is applied on top, this appears as no more than a dewy base.

Have you tried any of the Kiko Cosmetics?
