Kiko in London



Hello! Yes I was in London last weekend and it was great! I didn't have enough time to really go shopping so I got what was on my list! I went straight to Kiko as I desperately needed a face powder.

Compact Mineral Powder - Kiko Milano

As I mentioned I needed a face powder because my other was finished so I decided to give it a try as their prices are really reasonable. I got it after trying it on, of course! I have to say that I didn't like using it on its own. There wasn't enough coverage and I didn't like the way my skin looked - dull and kind of flat. However, once applied with a foundation I found it to be satisfactory as it reduces the shine on my T-zone and forehead. So yes, use it with a foundation.

Ultra Glossy Stylo Lipstick - Kiko Milano

This is my second Kiko lipstick and the truth is that I couldn't resist not buying a lipstick because you can never have enough. This line is glossy and moisturizing which is why I prefer it to a matte lipstick. It's great if you apply a lipliner all over your lip because it lasts longer. The colour can also change if you use a slightly darker shade. I like this lipstick and look forward to trying another type from Kiko. Honestly, the store was just too crowded on Regent's to look any longer.

Shea Body Butter - The Body Shop

While in London I had really dry patches on my hands. It was quite uncomfortable and the lotion I had brought with me wasn't doing enough. I headed to the Body Shop to get a body butter and got the shea one because it's so moisturizing and smells so good. It did the trick! I love their body butters!

Cult Beauty Purchase




Tempted?!! I know that most women surf the net to find out all about the new products coming out on the market. While doing that, I found this UK site selling niche brands that I hadn't really heard of before. I had been surfing for a while through their site and decided to give it a try. The transport was quick as I had everything within 4 business days and it came in this box. There was a sample of a toner by Aesop which I liked. There were supposed to be 2 samples with my purchase but there was some kind of problem when I clicked on the other product and I didn't get it. I was informed by email that I would get it on my next purchase.


Convertible Colour (Petunia) - Stila

This is so cute. I love the packaging! It has a little mirror that you can use and the compact is simply adorable! I have to say that I love it as a lip gloss because the bright coral shade looks amazing with my white skin. I do use a retractable lip brush though because I find the colour too sheer if applied with a finger. It's great to use now with spring on the way. It can also be used as a cream blush but I haven't really tried that yet. I'm not a fan of cream blushes. http://www.stilacosmetics.com/

Lip & Cheek pencil (Mystic) - Nudestix

I had never heard of this brand but I needed a pencil like that as I use it all the time under lipsticks and lip glosses and find them super handy. This is an amazing product and the colour is a natural lip colour allowing you to apply any shade on top. You can use it alone for a nude look and lasts long too. It comes in that little black container which contains a sharpener as well as info on the brand. I will be trying more of these in the future. http://www.nudestix.com/

Lip gloss (Malibu) - Jouer Cosmetics

Another niche brand with a variety of cosmetics. I had to try this shade of lip gloss because I wanted something fuschia. It is a great lip gloss which isn't sticky at all. It lasts just like a regular lip gloss but the colour is quite sheer so you have to use a lip pencil all over your lips for a more intense look.

So ladies there you have it. I would recommend this site so don't hesitate to check it out.
