Like you all know I’ve been around Europe this summer and when I was in Italy I stumbled across this little treasure Kiko Makeup Milano. My purse strings were pretty tied all holiday, so I really didn’t want to tempt myself but any who, we ended up queuing in Milan trains station one thing lead to another and there I was at Kiko tills…eeeek!
Full of excitement and the fact I’d spend €15, which is about £13, on a bag full of delights, I was made up! I’ve never heard of Kiko before, so I did a bit of research when I got back and found that you can buy online in the UK and there is a Kiko store in London, YEY!
Want to see what I discovered…?
These nail lacquers set me back around €1.50! And they stay on a dream, I put three coats on and it lasted four days without chipping! The colours are Orange- 368, Brown- 370, Turquoise- 389. They have hundreds to choose from too, plus they have this tape where you can test them all on.
Not only is there an abundance of nail polishes they also do every shade of lipstick, again I went to the offers area and picked these two up for around €2.50 each, if that! They are quite sheer and remind me of the Mac Cremesheen range in consistency. I can bet you there are some serious mac dupes in Kiko…The coral one is my favourite and I wore it lots on holiday. Again they are numbered so the pink is 902 and the coral in 907.
The first is a sparkly pink in 140, its very natural and the pink is matte and the sparkle is subtle. I think this is a dupe contender for the Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadow Ballet Pink The second one I picked up is this beautiful highly pigmented shimmery cranberry in 136 and again, a serious dupe of macs cranberry.
I think if I’d have had more time, I would have cleared the shop out… one for it being very purse friendly and two, the quality of the products rivals higher end makeup brands.
Very happy lady!
