Kiko Haul - Eyeshadows, Eye Pencils, Eyeshadow Sticks and Modern Tribe Blusher Brush Review

I haven't spent any money on new make-up in ages. You'll all doubt me on this as I'm always posting new products but I get sent a lot of items, so I don't actually purchase much myself. Of course, I repurchase my favourites but I haven't splurged on any new items in a long while.

Kiko sent me an email stating they had a sale and before you know it I had items in my basket; ready to check out. Please note any prices that I quote are from their sale, I'm looking at my order to see how much I paid at the time, these may go back to full price after the sale period.

Kiko Sale Haul

The first things that slipped into my basket were the Long Lasting Eyeshadow Sticks. I'd heard that they were excellent dupes for the By Terry Ombre Black Stars, which are priced at £29; where as the Kiko ones are priced at £6.90, a bargain!  The shades I choose were 37 Burgundy and 05 Rosy Brown, which is meant to be an exact dupe for the Ombre BlackStar shade called Misty Rock, Vivianna Does Makeup and Lily Pebbles are both fans. 
The quality and blend-ability of these eyeshadow stick is fantastic and they don't crease once they have set. I usually blend the edges of the colour with my MAC 217 brush and just apply mascara and eyeliner for an effortless everyday look.

I thought I'd give their powder eyeshadows a whirl too. I picked out another burgundy shade, which is called 137 Pearly Copper. I know that red shades work well with green eyes, hence the two burgundy shades in this haul. I also purchased 116 Pearly Forest Green, again good for green eyes and 166 Satin Midnight Blue, which was inspired by Amelia Liana. She created an amazing blue smoky eye look a few months back. These only cost £2.00 with discounts, I was tempted to get more but I'm tight on storage space.

Kiko Haul Eyeshadow Review

The Kiko Water Eyeshadows are phenomenal, very smooth in formula and they glisten beautifully. You can also use these shadows wet and pack them on like pigments. I went for the shade 209 Olive Green, it's a beauty!

Two Glamorous Eye Pencils found their way into my order as they were just £2.90. I have plenty of black liners, so I wanted some eye colour enhancing shades, (can you see a theme here). I choose 403 Burnt Sienna Earth and 404 Plum. These aren't as creamy as I would have liked, they are a hard pencil, which does take some work to get colour pay off. I'm not super disappointed as they were so cheap. An alternative would be Maybelline or Rimmel's coloured liners, these are both more creamy and pigmented.

Kiko Glamourous Eye Pencil Modern Tribes Blusher Brush Review

My haul is very eye make-up oriented isn't it? I did pick up a the Modern Tribe Tri-bal Soul Baked Blush in 03 Wild Mauve but this sadly smashed in transit, hence it's not in the photograph. Luckily I managed to get one while in Barcelona. I had to buy the matching Modern Tribes Blush Brush, it's an interesting shape, which is why I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. The super soft bristles are cut into curved shape intended to hug the contours of your cheek. The blush is domed so it's a perfect fit, but with flat pan blushes you do have to angle and push it into the pan to make sure the whole curve is covered. Blends blusher like a dream!

The Kiko sale is still on, I love the quality and price point of these items, so well worth putting in an order!

    1. Yes it is a little overwhelming but I just went for bits I knew I would use. You can grab a basket full of stuff and it would still only come to £30, great way of trying new things.

  14. I loooove the KIKO eyeshadow sticks and I can 100% confirm Rosy Brown is identical to Misty Rock as I swatched them side-by-side for a post! There's also an exact dupe of Bronze Moon in the KIKO range so I wonder if there are even more :) xx
