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? :)

  1. Hi there!

    I was wondering if you would like to do a swap with me? I live in the US and I'm dying to get some products from the UK. I've already done over a dozen international swaps. I've also have almost done 100 makeup swaps on makeupalley.com. If you could please let me know if you are interested or not I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much!
