Back again with another haul! This has also been a slight build up as I seem to keep finding myself wandering into the glorious KIKO stores! With now having 3 KIKO stores between Bristol & Bath its almost impossible to not walk in especially with 70% off sale! I decided to bring everything together for a haul because who doesn't love a good old beauty haul!
Lipsticks, lipsticks, lipsticks. Possibly my favourite beauty product ever. So of course I was bound to buy at least one, maybe 4! Oops! Surprisingly I have gone for shades which vary which is unusual as I seem to be picking up colours which are very similar!
Firstly, I picked up the Limited Edition Mirage Lipstick in the shade 13. The packaging is just ever so gorgeous (probably persuaded me to buy it) and looking back at the lipstick I'm almost surprised at myself for picking up such a bright pink shade however all I can say is the swatch must have looked slightly less pigmented or I was feeling confident!
I then picked up the most gorgeous lipstick I have ever laid eyes on, the packaging once again is magical with a magnetic top so its not going to come off in my bag, always a bonus! This lipstick claims to be a matte finish although I can't vouch for that yet as I haven't used it (I waited to take a photo first!) The quality definitely looks amazing. I picked up the shade 315 and its part of the 'Velvet Passion' collection which I highly recommend you try and explore.
A round of applause please for accidentally knocking over the lipstick before I took my first photo :( I was gutted! However, I picked up the shades (left to right); 803 Pink Flamingo which has a slight hint of coral & 813 Apple Blossoms which is more of a darker pink which I can definitely see myself getting some use from in Autumn.
I definitely couldn't leave the store without lipliners! I've recently been looking for a dark pink shade to match my ABH & Kat Von D liquid lipsticks and I have a feeling I might have just found them! I picked up 711 & 712. Although they're close in name there is a clear difference in colour once swatched. I'm looking forward to seeing what the quality of these lip liners are like.
Next I picked up two shadow sticks, I've heard a lot about these so I was super excited to try them! I picked up a 25 which is a light brown/taupe colour and 34 which is a light shimmery pink rose which would probably be amazing as an highlighter as well! These claim to be 8 hour long-lasting so I'm looking forward to trying these out to see if they live up to it.
Finally I picked up this white and pick KIKO make-up bag/pouch. I've been on the hunt for something to keep my new make-up brushes in and this looks like the perfect size. On the right side there is a popper which means you can fold the bag in half which makes it a lot more compact. Ideal for what I want it for.
That brings me to the end of this post and feeling pleased with my purchases! KIKO is definitely my new found love, being so affordable and so gorgeous! Have you ever bought anything from KIKO?
