Hello everyone! Happy Friday ❤
I have been away for some time now… I think we all experience a blogging hiccup at some point and need to keep away from the brightly lit-screens in order to recharge. Since I am feeling better than ever after my (relatively “short”) break, I will be posting on Wednesdays AND Fridays from here on out.
Today, I bring you part two of my Kiko Milano Haul! (You can find part one here my friend.) As I mentioned before, I picked up goodies from a Kiko Milano store during my time in Rome. The goodies shown below can best be categorized as lip products, which range from pinky lip liners to exfoliating lip scrubs.
I’ve actually never been big on lip liners until recently. In the past, most of the lip liners I came across were not very creamy, which made application pretty unpleasant. After trying celebrity Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kit in Candy K, I came to the conclusion that creamy lip liners exist and are out there.
I picked up the CREAMY COLOUR Comfort Lip Liner (302) in Warm Rose from a Kiko Milano stand because it’s a pretty color and claims to “glide on” the lips easily. I also found another product with the same promise but in a waterproof formula, the EVERLASTING COLOUR Precision Lip Liner (406) in Pink. What is interesting about this automatic lip liner is there’s a built-in sharpener on the tail of the pencil.
Since the brand Kiko Milano carries a wide selection of lipsticks, I chose my favorite lip shades in different finishes. I picked up two COLOUR CLICK Lipsticks in Impressionist Red (04) and Brilliant Pink (01). These lipsticks have a creamy sheen finish and also have lip liners that correspond to each shade (which is sold separately).
Another lipstick I picked is the ULTRA GLOSSY STYLO (809) in Ruby Red. I was intrigued by this particular lipstick because it contains SPF 15. I realized at the store that the lip products I chose were glossy, sheer, and creamy. It took some time, but I found a lipstick with a matte finish! The VELVET PASSION Matte Lipstick (303) in Rose felt high-end because of it’s incredible pigmentation and lovely packaging. This lipstick as the brand’s logo pressed and has a magnetic closure to ensure preservation.
The last two products in my Kiko Milano Haul is under the realm of skin care. I struggle with dry lips seasonally and lately no balm has been able to moisturize my lips fully. The Night Balm by Kiko Milano serves to repair lips overnight and after reading great reviews online, I decided to try it out. Another product that stood out to me was the Lip Scrub Stick, a best selling lip exfoliator.
P.S. I post every Wednesday and Friday now!
