An otherwise failed trip to Ibiza Town (yeahh turns out everything’s closed on a Sunday guys) turned out to be rather fruitful, when we stumbled upon the budget cosmetics goldmine that is Kiko. Almost gleaming in the searing heat, Kiko, which is laid out in a manner akin to Sephora could almost have been a mirage amongst the boarded up cafes, boutiques and bars. Alas no, it was real and Anj, Steph and I were 3 extremely happy bunnies that day.
Stocking all manners of cosmetics in a diverse spectrum of colours at prices more Bourgeois than Burberry, Kiko has become a new favourite for me. They conveniently provide you with cute little branded maccy hampers allowing you to stock up on low-price makeup to your heart’s content (2 hours, in our case #issues.) At the end of it all I was very satisfied with my purchases, feeling that familiar euphoric buzz that accompanies any fash/beaut purchase, which was only intensified by the price, 46 euros for 10 high quality products averaging at less than 5 euros a piece!!! Have a gander at my new metallic make-up babies, they’re just lovely.
Despite looking a little daunting from the outside, this Super Colour Mascara looks hummmmazing with a plum or orange lip and minimal eye. Go bold or go home.

My gemstone shadow purchases are ridiculously pigmented and longlasting, such a decadent makeup look. What’s more, the water shadows can be used wet for even more colour intensity.
Glamorous lip liner in 307
I loved this colour as it was more on the cherry side of red and so not too heavy for Summer.
Eyeliner in 409
I’ve been meaning to dabble in gem coloured liner for yonks, this looks great with a cherry lip.
Eyeliner in 401. Metallic liner is super glam and for me, pips standard black kohl liner every time.

Has anyone else used Kiko products before?? More importantly, what’s your take on coloured liner/mascara? YAY or NAY?? Lemme know!! x
