Kiko Eye & Lip Pencils

Hello my lovelies!

Hope you're all having a fabulous Sunday! Yesterday i went into Kiko and saw many of the eye and lip pencils reduced, it had already persuaded me to purchase some, lol! I had previously bought some eye pencils from Kiko and i was mega impressed with the quality, colour pay off and the price!

I love the Kiko vibrant eye pencils because they are so creamy and easy to blend. Plus they have so many colours to choose from!

I had decided to buy the glossy eye pencil (which is the top, black swatch) and you can see, it has an amazing sheen to it. Great for those rock, chick messy kinda looks.

605 is an incredible mixture of teal and blue. This looks incredible on people with brown or hazel eyes and would be fabulous to wear in the seasons of spring and summer.

06 was a limited edition colour from the Christmas collection and is double ended, hence the two swatches. Many of you know i love greens and i just had to buy it!

The eye pencils cost me £3.90 each but the RRP is normally £5.20.

These pencils are much less creamier and both cost me £2.90 each, the RRP is £4.20.

413 is a Glamorous eye pencil and is a beautiful forest green colour. I would use this under an eyeshadow as a base colour or along my lashline and smudge it in for that subtle smokey look. Again, greens look amazing on brown eyes and just accentuate them.

305 is a Precision eye pencil and is a shimmery white. This is perfect for the waterline, to make your eyes appear bigger. You can also use it under your brows or in the inner corner of the eye and smudge it for that highlight.

When i was swatching the lip pencils in the Kiko store, i noticed how creamy they were and the colour pay off was impressive.

The Precision lip pencils (number 302 and 309) cost me £2.90 and the RRP is £4.20. I was attracted to shade 309. The deep berry colour looked stunning, and its a shade i would probably wear on an evening out with very simple eye makeup.

Shade 302 is a nude colour and is great for that hint of colour on your lips when you don't want to wear too much makeup.

Shade 203 is a striking orange colour and is from the Smart Lip Pencils range and cost £1.90. I love how bright and bold this colour is and knowing that brights are the new trends for this coming spring, it was just perfect! This colour i would wear on its own. I would line my lips and fill it in using the same lip liner. Then dab and lightly smudge it for a softer look.

Kiko products can be purchased on their website at www.kikocosmetics.com or from their stores, which are located at both Westfield Shopping Centres in London.

Have any of you tired Kiko products? If so what do you think? :)

Bdellium Tools Green Bambu Vegan Brush Review

Hola Chicos!!

Today, i had the chance to use a brush that is made from bambu! At first i thought hmmmm, but when i saw the brush i was taken aback by the colour as it is such a vibrant green!

The brush is:
  • Eco friendly
  • Cruelty free
  • Suitable for vegans
  • Made from bambu


When i applied my foundation, the brush felt so soft against my skin and did not leave any streaks or brush marks on my face! It applied foundation beautifully and i had used the Nars Sheer Glow Foundation.

I love the fact that it's quite small compared with other brands, as i can actually carry it in my makeup bag.

In my opinion this brush has many uses because of its shape. I could use it for foundation and also for contouring.

I think the prices are very reasonable, as they are not overly expensive and seem very good quality and hard wearing. The added bonus is that it's cruelty free :)


The brushes start from £6.50 and can be purchased from www.cutecosmetics.co.uk
Customer service is great from Cute Cosmetics, and i would highly recommend them!

Urban Decay Naked2 Palette Review & Swatches

Heyyyy lovelies!!!

I was lucky enough to get the Urban Decay Naked2 Palette early and so far i have been loving it! I had pre-ordered it from www.debenhams.com and it came with free delivery.

The Naked2 palette has more cooler colours, when compared with the original Naked palette. These colours are still very wearable for all skin tones and the fabulous thing is you can have a very natural day time look and then transform into a sexy, smokey night look.

The palette came with a double ended brush and a mini Naked gloss. The previous Naked palette came with a primer potion and a double ended pencil liner. I think i would have preferred another primer potion, as it something people always use!

This is an amazing palette and is so versatile to use. I love the packaging of the palette, as it seems more durable and hard wearing. This is an ideal palette for traveling, as it looks like it's not going to break in my case!
