If you are visiting a Kiko store you have to check these blush palettes out!
Kiko recently released this new line of four beautiful blush duos which come in the cutest packaging in form of chocolate bars. And they smell like chocolate too! There are four different palettes with a great range of shades for all skin tones; but the shade 02 Silky Rose and Mauve instantly caught my attention. I thought it would be perfect for Autumn, the colours scream autumn to me. This duo comes with a light mauve pink and a deeper mauve colour. They are pigmented, soft, velvety and blendable. The colours are perfect for everyday wear. The quality is just incredible, with good pigmentation. The texture and colour payoff are great. The blushes are soft and buttery, they glide on nicely and leave a lovely healthy glow on the cheeks. They last me the day without fading significantly or going patchy. I love the cute packaging, it's small, compact and travel-friendly. I need to go back to Kiko to get the rest of the collection!
I definitely recommend these to add to your collection.
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine'Boy' lipstick is my all-time favourite lipstick and it's one of the most amazing lipsticks ever!
Simple and pretty
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine ‘Boy’ is pretty much the lipstick everyone should own. Sheer, lightweight, effortless... It's easy to wear, it's so moisturizing and it goes with any make up look.
It is the perfect neutral colour; a sheer pinky nude colour with some flecks of golden micro-glitter and with a hint of mauve to it. It's SO pretty and flattering, It looks really good on fair skin, it's one of those shades that won't wash your out. The formula is creamy and moisturizing and feels smooth and balmy on the lips. even slightly plumps your lips.It applies evenly and smoothly, it glides on almost like butter. It does not dry out your lips, feels great on and gives your lips a love healthy glow. The colour doesn't stay on very long, it goes away after eating but I think it has a pretty decent longevity for a sheer lipstick. It seems that everyone loves very pigmented lipsticks these days but I tent to lean towards sheer and more natural lip colours, so this is PERFECTION to my eyes. This is definitely a Holy Grail lipstick. It's the perfect lipstick to carry around in your handbag, so easy to apply without a mirror. The elegant and pretty packaging just makes it extra special. You can't go wrong with Chanel!
There have been new products added to my makeup collection.
I recently picked up a few things in Kiko and Mac.
A few things that have been on my wishlist for ages!
MAC MINERALIZE SKINFINISH SOFT&GENTLE| link I can definitely see why this is such a cult favourite. I think this might be the best highlighter I have bought so far! I can't believe I haven't tried this sooner. This is by far the most perfect champagne-toned highlighter I've ever tried! So so beautiful! MAC WHIRL LIPSTICK| link I also got the popular Whirl lipstick, thanks to back2Mac program. I wanted to try something different and this colour is so out of my comfort zone but I like it. It's a rosy brown with a hint of mauve; it's really beautiful but a lot darker than I thought it would be. The lipstick is lovely and perfect for the upcoming Autumn season. It's long lasting and and quite moisturising, it doesn't dry out my lips.
KIKO COLOUR KAJAL #115 BUTTER| link I made a quick stop in Kiko because I needed a new nude eye pencil and I'd heard good things about this one. This is a lovely and inexpensive eye pencil! It's creamy, soft and it's perfect for the lower waterline.
KIKO BLUSH COCOA SHOCK PALETTE | link Kiko recently released this new line of four beautiful blush duos which come in the cutest packaging in form of chocolate bars. The shade 02 Silky Rose and Mauve instantly caught my attention, I thought it would be perfect for Autumn. This duo comes with a light mauve pink and a deeper mauve colour. They are pigmented, soft, velvety and blendable.
I thought it was time for a seasonal makeup bag update so I would share with you my Autumn picks that have made it into my main makeup bag.
Here is what's inside for the next autumnal months...
THE BASE |Dior BB Creme| I love this so much! It looks beautiful on the skin, it feels light and gives a lovely glow. It's natural and has the right amount of coverage to cover redness and marks. It stays on pretty well and doesn't fade throughout the day. THE CONCEALER |Urban Decay Naked Skin|It has a pretty good coverage and works perfectly for covering dark circles and brightening the under eye area.
THE BROWS| Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer | My new favourite product for brows! Awesome product and easy to work with. The shade soft brown is just perfect!
THE HIGHLIGHTER | Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector 'Opal'|Beautiful highlighter, so smooth, so buttery...although I think the colour is too gold and warm for my skintone, but the colour is so beautiful!
THE BLUSH| Mac 'Rosy Outlook' | It's a lovely pale warm pink with a matte finish. It's the perfect shade for everyday, natural and wearable.
THE BRONZER| Benefit Hoola | It's the perfect colour for giving your skin a bit more of live and warmth. I love it because it looks natural.
THE EYESHADOW| Laura Mercier Caviar Stick 'Copper'| It's easy to apply and stays in place all day. It's so creamy and glides on effortlessly.
THE EYELASH CURLER | Kevin Aucoin|These curl the lashes gently and opens up the eyes so you instantly look more awake.
THE MASCARA |YSL Babydoll| I'm using this Ysl mascara at the moment, it makes my lashes appear longer and thicker without clumping.
THE EYE PENCIL| Kiko Colour Kajal 'Butter'|I'm enjoying this Kiko eye pencil at the moment. I use thison the lower waterline to open up the eyes.
THE LIP PRODUCTS| Dior Lip Maximizer and Guerlain La Petite Robe 'Beige Lingerie'|The lip maximizer gives your lips a tangly sensation but not too strong and makes your lips look nice and so plump! Beige Lingerie is my new obsession! I love the natural soft pink colour and the effect on the lips, it leaves my lips hydrated and plumped.
What's on your makeup bag?
I would love to hear what you're keeping in your autumn makeup bag!
The perfect autumnal shade! I love this nail polish so much and it's one of my favourite polishes ever! It is a beautiful dusty pink, a great shade for a everyday wear and flattering on many different skin tones.
It is a good mascara, it gives my lashes volume, makes them look fuller and longer and doesn't make them clumpy. It does a really good job but it's not the best mascara. It's not my favourite mascara I think there are better mascaras for less out there, but I've been using this non stop for the past month!
I love love this cream! It's perfect for adult, acne-prone skin. It's an evening treatment that targets blemishes, marks and the first signs of ageing. I suffer from very sensitive skin and breakouts and this is perfect! I couldn't recommend this enough!
