Last week I went along to the launch of KIKO MILANO‘s brand new store in Aberdeen. KIKO is an Italian cosmetics brand that focuses on cutting-edge makeup and skincare. I had never bought anything from KIKO before so I was very excited to see what they had to offer, along with learning about the brand. The morning was kicked off with a speech from Paul (a KIKO expert) who introduced the brand and told us about their products which are always being updated to suit the latest fashion trends. After Paul’s speech, we were welcome to some breakfast and a wee browse around the shop to pick up some goodies! There was also KIKO makeup artists on hand to tell us more about certain products and to give demo’s on how they apply! My lips got transformed into a mermaid…
On the day of the launch, there was a steady queue forming outside the shop (it was also Black Friday…) and there was such a buzz surrounding the shop! The new KIKO shop is in Union Square, right across from Costa!
It was so much fun testing out all the products (leaving my hand full of lipstick swatches) and all the testers weren’t even open yet so everything felt completely brand new!
At the launch, I was able to pick up quite a lot of products so here is what I got…
ULTIMATE DOUBLE TOUCH – 102 and 105 (£8.90)
3D HYDRA LIP GLOSS – 07, 20 and 18 (£7.90)
VELVET PASSION MATTE LIPSTICK – 301 (£10.90)
PENCIL LIP GLOSS – 08 and 06 (£3.90)
CREAMY COLOUR COMFORT LIP LINER – 301 (£5.90)
SMART COLOUR EYESHADOWS – 12 and 18 (£2.90) + WATER EYESHADOW – 208 Light Gold which is a perfect colour for a highlighter (£8.90)
SKIN TONE FOUNDATION – Warm Beige 20 (£15.90) + SKIN TRAINER CC BLUR – Light (£19.90)
I’ve already tried out a few of the products and my favourites so far have to be the 3D Hydra Lip Glosses and the Pencil Lip Glosses (really loving glosses right now if you can’t tell…) but if you want any reviews on any of the products above, leave me a comment below or chat to me over on Twitter!
Thanks so much for reading!
