My First Kiko Haul & Swatches

Kiko has always been a shop that I regularly walk past, sometimes have a look, but somewhere I've never purchased a single thing - very unlike me. 

After having to leave early from a recent work trip to Milan due to illness, I was sat at the airport feeling sorry for myself and decided that then was the perfect time for my first Kiko Milano haul. I mean, when in Milan and all that! 

I was in the shop a good half an hour before I settled on my purchases and I'm so happy with them, they're all now a staple part of my daily make up.

Smart Colour Eyeshadow - 08 Pearly Taupe

Smart Colour Eyeshadow - 06 Metallic Wenge Brown

Smart Colour Eyeshadow - 23 Metallic Jeans Blue

Smart Colour Eyeshadow - 32 Matt Smoky Grey

You can view the whole Smart Colour Eyeshadow Collection here. There's so many colours to chose from, they were all so beautiful I could easily go back and buy every single one. 

The eyeshadows work well with with a big fluffy brush as they blend really well. There is some fall out from the smoky grey colour which is the only downside and they're not quite as pigmented as other brands but I still love them, especially the two metallic shades. You get so much product for your money so they're definitely a great buy!

Smart Lipstick - 901 Natural Neige

Since I've recently started getting seriously into lipsticks, of course I had to try out a Kiko one. I'm not quite brave enough to try anything but nude right now so I opted for one of the most natural shades. The colour is actually one of my favourite shades in my whole collection. It's now my current go to day time shade, particularly as my lips are really dry at the moment and this product doesn't dry them out any more. 

The only negative comment I have is that it doesn't last particularly long, but then maybe I feel like that because I've been too spoilt with my liquid lipsticks that last 12 hours! Despite this, I would definitely buy more Smart Lipstick's from Kiko, you can check out the whole collection here

The Sculpting Touch Stick was my final purchase and one I mulled over for long time. I was currently using the Makeup Rev Blush Stick in Malibu Matt but during the winter months, I've found it's too warm toned and I need something more cool toned and natural for contouring, especially in the day.

I fell in love with this product the second I tried it, it's creamy and blends easily, and is also the perfect colour for a natural contour.

This is the lighter of the two shades available but I'll definitely be back to buy the darker one in the summer!

Overall, I am massively impressed with Kiko. I'm surprised the quality was so good in consideration of the price. There's so many more products I want to try so if you have any other recommendations I should add to my list, let me know!

Love Lauren xx
