Kiko Milano Haul // Copper Isn't Just For Pennies!!

leluroxx.blogspot.co.uk


Well hello there!!! 

Guys, it's no secret that I have a major love for all things makeup. I don't think it's anything new to any of us ladies to be honest, if we really think about it! 

Myself though, I am a keen bean when it comes to buying the stuff. If there is anything new out by one of my (many) favourite brands I need to get it. I seem to be growing quite a bit of a collection these days compared to when I first started acquiring makeup. 

We can all relate (if you are my age that is) to when we were in high school and you weren't allowed to look at makeup let alone attempt to wear it. 
And lets be honest we all went through the phase of wearing blue eyeliner, electric blue mascara, glitter eyeshadow and a load of lip gloss that could of replicated fly paper it was THAT sticky! Ha.

What were we thinking? Actually, what was I thinking?!! 

Over the Christmas period I discovered the brand Kiko in its entirety. I had heard of them before when I have received free gifts in my Glamour/Cosmo magazines. I think I got a felt tip eyeliner which I really liked. 

I ventured to Merry Hill over Christmas to do some Christmas shopping... At that point, I only left with things for myself (as you do) and some of the products I left with were Kiko related. Their store had not long opened there and when I saw it I beelined straight through the doors.

It's only a small store there but I was in my element, there was so much to look at. I love working with my eyes the most so I was looking to invest in eye products mainly. 

I have a thing for copper/rose gold and I LOVE coppers and warmer tones on my eyes at the moment. Even though I am a pale face those tones seem to work with my skin and make my eyes pop. 

They definitely weren't short of copper inspired items. 

So lets have a look at what I bought!

That day I bought 4 products just to test out the brand.

First off I purchased the Kiko 'Colour Sphere' Eyeshadow in shade (05). It's a deep copper hue with a small amount of shimmer in it. It has a baked element to it too.  

The packaging is pretty cool, the base has a slight rubbery feel and the lid is more of a clear perspex. It's simple and cute.

As you can see the colour appears highly pigmented and it's true to its appearance. The colour pay off is really good and it's especially blendable which is 100% what you're looking for in a shadow. I really love this. 



Next, is the Kiko 'Eyetech Look' Eyeshadow in shade (104). Again this is in a copper shade, but in a slightly lighter hue and it's in a screw pen form.

This product is pretty small and the shadow is in the unscrewed base, the sponge applicator I find for me, difficult to work with but that's because I really only use brushes. It's a beautiful colour and so frickin handy to pop in your bag!! 

This is a handbag essential! 



The third product I picked was... And you guessed it... A copper shaded eyeliner. 

This is from their 'Intense Colour' range in shade (03)

This is a really lovely product, it has a nice creamy texture when applying so you don't really get much drag when working around your waterline. The opposite end has a mini blending sponge to help create that 'smokey eye' look. The colour pay off again is pretty darn good, it works really well with the other products I bought from them. 


And finally, the last product I grabbed was the Kiko 'Cream Crush' Lasting Colour Eyeshadow in shade (05). 

Now this one, isn't within the copper theme and I actually picked it up and decided not to get it. I walked out of the store but I kept thinking about how pretty it was so I went back in and gave in to my demands. Ha.

This was the most expensive out of them all but when I swatched it in the shop I thought it was so pretty. It was a subtle sparkle that is in the texture of a cream, but applied as if it was a dust. 

I thought it would look beautiful on the eyes with a nude lip. I don't really work with cream shadows so I think this is a case of tap and go in regards to application. 


I love each and every one of these products and I desperately want to try more of their range, I think they are good value for money and are a great quality brand. I have seen that they do a red eyeliner but I cannot find it in store. 

That is next on my list. 

I love to experiment me!! 

If you haven't already go check them out because in my eyes they are pretty huge!! 

Love
