This Italian cosmetics brand has caught the attention of fashionistas throughout Glasgow where they have their Scotland flagship store (with an Aberdeen branch opening soon!). I’m really late to the Kiko Milano train, but better late than never.
What really appealed to me, as a supporter of cruelty-free beauty, was that none of their products are tested on animals, and also, as a skint student, the prices are unbelievably affordable. They actually had a sale on some of the make-up, so I came home with more than a few bargains, including the Universal Fit Hydrating Foundation, Radiant Fusion Baked Powder, Unlimited Stylo Lipstick and the Full Coverage Concealer.
Aptly named universal fit because its a good basic liquid foundation that works for everyday use. Not too thick or oily, but needs topping up throughout the day if you want better coverage.
Amazing coverage on even really stubborn spots and blemishes, plus brightens around the eye area while acting a a great base for eyeshadow when you want a strong pigment. One of my favourite concealers I’ve yet sampled, only coming second to Bobbi Brown!
This illuminating pressed powder has become my go-to for a glowy highlight all over the face. With a gentle shimmer, its suitable for everyday use, but can easily be built up for night.
I chose a super bright orangey-coral shade (number 05) as I’ve been told it contrasts well with blue hair and blue eyes! The formula is nice and moisturising and the colour translates to lips as well as it does on a swatch. Not very long-lasting.
