Huge KIKO haul

Huge KIKO haul

I was recently gifted a very generous KIKO limited edition gift card with some £££ to spend on this amazing KIKO haul*. I love KIKO, their products are reliable, always on-trend and they have something for everyone. I even tried bits of their skincare and I love their Energy Mask. Visit KIKO stores to see the whole range of products if you haven't seen or tested them before, the makeup artists there are always very nice and informative. I personally love their Regent's Street store, but if you don't fancy travelling to central London, they are also in Westfield White City and Westfield Stratford, so really you don't have any excuse to splurge!

I am planning to hopefully do a little bit of travelling soon, so I decided to invest in this genius Travel Brush Set containing five dual-ended professional makeup brushes. All are synthetic, which is hugely important for me. I simply love how compact it is and how many products it has: Face 500 (face brush, ideal for blending bronzer and blush), Face 501 duo (double-ended travel face brush, for the application of concealers and cream products), Eyes & Lips 502 duo (travel eye and lip brush), Eyes 503 duo and Eyes 504 duo (travel eye brushes with two tips, perfect for applying and blending loose powder, compact or cream eyeshadows). The case can be washed in the washing machine and I can easily replace/add other makeup brushes, I have my eye on Real Techniques Mini Must-Haves.

I also picked up two more KIKO Cool Touch Eyeshadow in Original Cream and Modern Burgundy from the Generation Next Collection which I've reviewed fully here. They have water-based formula with airy and silky texture that glides perfectly on the eyelids. They come in these specially-designed packages to protect the product's unique composition. A transparent internal lid allows to see the eyeshadow colour while preserving its freshness. 

I coveted over NARS Multiple for months now, but KIKO Velvet Touch Creamy Stick Blush in Geranium and Rose Mauve seemed like a great alternative. They are pigmented and easy to blend, the velvety, silky texture melts onto the skin and gives a pleasant sensation of comfort and looks natural on my skin. 

I am always after a new nail polish base and top coats and forever looking for those which will give me a perfect and long-lasting manicure. That's why I added KIKO 3 in 1 White - base, hardener and whitening top coat - all in one. Its special formula is enriched with strengthening and whitening lemon and lime plant active ingredients for a triple action: it protects the nail from the colour and protects its surface, strengthens the nails and seals the nail polish by speeding up the drying time and improving its hold. I'll definitely report back on this one.

KIKO Glow² Blush & Highlighter is a part of Bad Girl Collection and is currently on sale, so grab it quick! It's a blush and highlighter stick to give an instant radiant effect. I also got it because it will be very useful for any travels - with one swipe I can put on a highlighter and blusher at the same time, or blend them two together for an unique blush shade. I absolutely love it - so clever and the shades compliment each other so well.

Last, but not least, I got KIKO Pencil Lip Gloss in Light Beige to emulate my inner Kylie Jenner. I already own one of these in a similar light shade - Baby Pink - and it feels nicely on the lips and lasts a decent amount of time, plus it's only £3.90!  

Are you a fan of KIKO makeup? What shall I pick up next?

  4. Dak Prescott had a chance to win his first NFL start as Dallas, down 20-19, took over at their own 20-yard line with 1:04 left on the clock. The drive fell short eight plays later as wideout Terrance Williams caught a pass in Giants territory but failed to get out bounds in time. The failed one-minute drill doesn't entirely take away from a promising debut for Prescott, who opened the game with scoring drives of 15, 15, 11 and seven plays before the cheap sale jerseys offense was forced to punt. The first half for Dallas served as confirmation that this year's Cowboys are very wholesale jerseys shop much in new nike nfl jerseys play to duplicate their 2014 selves with Prescott at the helm. Hitting 25 of 45 passes for 227 yards, the rookie -- picked NFL Jerseys 134 spots behind Jared Goff -- helped Dallas control the NFL Jerseys ball for 22-plus minutes of the first half. Prescott found eight separate targets and looked comfortable directing the offense. He'd jerseys store like a handful of those throws back, but the former Mississippi State star did a commendable job going through his progressions, finding holes in the defense and putting the ball where his targets had a chance to make plays. This loss falls more on a wanting Dallas defense that couldn't get the Giants off the field in the second half.
