Going Crazy In Kiko

So if you have already watched the video that I did with Vanessa last week for her YouTube channel, then you will know that things got a little crazy when I had my first experience in the Kiko store on Regent Street. It's a brand that has rather a lot of hype around it at the moment and after having a mooch in person I can completely understand why. The price tag is also a great incentive, especially for the quality. I'm going to London again in a few weeks, so I imagine that I might have to take a detour to Regent Street. Just a bit of advice though, if you go then make sure you are wearing as little clothing as possible. It's like a sauna in there. It also has crazy disco lighting, which isn't ideal when swatting products.

If you had told me a year ago that I would be obsessed with cream eyeshadow sticks, then I would've laughed in your face. I have always had quite oily eyelids, so cream products used to be a massive no no for me. However, beauty brands are killing it at the moment with their long lasting formulas and stunning shades. My blogging wife Sarah was raving about the the Kiko long lasting sticks (£6.90), so obviously that was the first stand that I hit when I got in there. I picked out 5 of them! Excessive? Yes, but I like to grab an opportunity when I can. Plus I was feeling rather spendy. They are extremely pigmented and last forever and a day. Out of everything in this post I recommend these the most, total perfection. I bought the following shades;

07- Gold/champagne
21-Pink/peach with gold shimmer
36- Pink/purple
37- Warm toned brown
10- Emerald green

I also picked up two of their Glamorous eye pencils (£2.90). Again, I never used to be a big kohl pencil wearer but I fell in love with these shades. I can't wait to use them in more makeup looks coming into Autumn. I picked up;

413- Forest green
407- Navy

The last thing that I picked up was the Colour Fever eyeshadow quad in the shade 100 (£13.90). It's full of purply taupe toned neutrals, which is perfect for my green eyes. I've used it a couple of times already and I am so impressed with the quality of these eyeshadows. There was another palette that I had my beady little eye on so I predict it to be in my basket in a few weeks. 

Top row- Eyeshadow quad in 100
Bottom row (L-R)- 407, 413, 07, 21, 36, 37 & 10

Can you tell that I'm impressed? Have you used anything from Kiko? If you have any recommendations then please let me know.
