I've received few bits from the limited edition KIKO Life in Rio collection* last week and I knew I had to share them with you. This stunning summer collection is literally packed with vibrant colours and in my opinion captures the true essence of Rio. The vivid shades and gold packaging remind me of colourful exotic flowers from Amazonian jungle and of course the famous Carnival in Rio.
Life in Rio has ten amazing KIKO Sun Show Nail Lacquers to choose from, ranging from yellow to pink, purple, blue and green. All have this beautiful shimmery effect and reflective gold pearls, which give splendid iridescent reflections - especially in the sun. I am planning to paint my tanned toes in the summer with Delicious Mango and can't wait to take Samba Pink on holidays with me. As with all KIKO nail polishes, these have excellent quality and are easy to apply with flattened brush. (RRP £5.90)
The product from the collection I am really excited about is this KIKO Shimmering Body Oil with SPF 10 (this shade is Satin Bronze, but there is also another one called Intense Bronze suited for darker complexions). It is a golden dry oil for face and body which has multipurpose use. You can use it on your shoulders, décolletage and legs to even and brighten the tan, or on the cheekbones and temples to add radiance to the face. It has a very subtle amber scent and gives beautiful 'sun-kissed' effect. (RRP £12.90)
Another limited edition products are KIKO Exotic Shine Lipsticks in six colour variations ranging from nude, orange, pink and red shades. I own classic KIKO lipsticks and to be honest I am not a huge fan of them, the longevity is not that great. However, this creamy lipstick resembles more like a hybrid between lipstick and lip balm, is super easy to apply and the colour stays put for much longer. It's perfect to take on holiday since it is small and light and I can keep it in my pocket for a touch up on the go without the need of a mirror and together with some colour, it gives some moisture and shine. Everything is packed in this golden packaging which oozes luxury. I am really impressed! (RRP £8.50)
