KIKO is fast becoming one of my favourite makeup brands. Originally I discovered KIKO when I was in London a few years ago and stumbled into one of the (back then) few KIKO stores around. Now they're popping up all over the place! And thank goodness too. Last weekend me and the boyfriend to do a few jobs in town, which inevitably meant some spontaneous purchases too. I wasn't planning on treating myself to so many makeup bits, but when I spotted the 6 items for the price of 3 promotion I was sold. All you had to do was download the KIKO app and present your personalised QR code at the till. So here's what I picked up. 

After months of really not being fussed by wearing eyeshadow, I'm now back into it big time. KIKO have a HUGE range of eyeshadows, in different shades and formulas. I already own some of their eyeshadow sticks, so I thought it was time to try some of their powder eyeshadows. I picked up 4 High Pigment Wet and Dry Eyeshadows. These are a genius design as they already come magnetically attached to individual pans, making taking them out and places them in a palette super easy and mess free! My poor boyfriend did get bored of me swatching endless shades on my hand to try and make a decision on which shades to buy. In the end I went for 04, a gorgeous metallic rosy taupe colour, I've left this in an individual pan for now but may switch it out for travelling etc. I also picked up 16, a stunning pink toned gold shade which reminds me a bit of MAC's Naked Lunch, 06 a matte taupe shade, and 81 a matte 'antique brass' as described on the KIKO website. It's a cool toned brown that's perfect for adding depth to your eyeshadow look! Each of the eyeshadows came in at £6.90 each. I'm yet to try the eyeshadows wet, although I'm sure the metallic shades will be even more shiny and stunning when I do. 

As I said the magnetic design of the eyeshadows meant I could buy a 3 pan eyeshadow palette at £5.90 and immediately transfer three of the shadows in really quickly. The palette is super travel friendly and has a good quality mirror inside, perfect for makeup on the go. After walking round with a handful of eyeshadows, I then stumbled across the lip stand. Again after swatching a few too many lipsticks on my hand I settled for one of the Smart Lipsticks in 902. This is a beautiful coral pink shade, with a tiny bit of shimmer in. The shimmer isn't noticeable when applied on the lips, it just gives a healthy glossy look. I'm a sucker for matte black packaging, so that was a huge plus for this lipstick range, as well as the fact they're only £3.90! What a bargain. I would have picked up most of the range if I had all the money in the world... In total my whole KIKO haul came up just over £18, this was including a 10% discount for using the KIKO app for the first time. I'm definitely going to keep my eyes peeled on that app for any more amazing offers.

**Also, I just checked, and KIKO does NOT test on animals! Yay :-)
