Founded in 1997 by the Percassi Group, KIKO is an Italian professional cosmetic brand without animal testing. They have a wide range of cutting-edge make-up and tools. They constantly update their make-up line and individual products to keep up with the latest innovations in the world of beauty and make-up. In all different KIKO-stores, you can ask for professional advice or buy a ticket to get your make-up done. When I lived in Salamanca, I had my make-up done at KIKO once, and I must say I was really satisfied with the result.
In this blogpost, you can read my review on my favourite KIKO-products, which I bought in the KIKO-store in Salamanca
1. Nail polish Fixer
The nail polisher fixer is the ultimate invention for all those hasty and, most of all, impatient people, like myself. I never have the patience to wait until my nail polish is completely dry. Consequence: scratched and shifted nail polish. The nail polish fixer promises completely dry nail polish in only a few seconds, and it totally lives up to this promise. After applying your polish, wait approximately 1 minute before spraying the fixer to your nails.
2. Dark Grey Nail Polish n° 381
The offer of KIKO nail polish is immense and despite the fact that this offer may seem a bit overwhelming, you can find every shade you are looking for at a KIKO store. The KIKO nail polish has a rich colour, a good cover and stays long, for a relatively cheap price. When you apply correctly, you only need one layer, at most 2 if you want a deeper colour.
3. Scrub & Peel
The scrub wipes are a good solutions for everyone of you who doesn’t like to put greasy scrub cream on their face and having to rinse it all off again afterwards. The wipes have a micro-relief side with a fine grain to remove the dead skin cells in an effective way off your delicate facial skin. The other side is a soft side and serves to soothe your face again after the scrubbing. The wipes give no hassle and they are easy and clean in use. That’s the reason why I like them so much. You can also buy a variant for your entire body. They suggest to use the facial scrub wipes twice a week, but I prefer to use them once a week, because I have a very delicate skin.
4. Hydrating Hand Fluid
With its rich formula, the KIKO hand fluid is perfect for my ultra-dry hands. The easy size of the tube makes it possible to always take it with you. The hand fluid absorbs fast and gives you really soft and hydrated hands. The scent of the hand fluid is subtle and not overwhelming, which is a plus, in my opinion.
5. Luscious Cream Lipstick n° 500
This is a nude lipstick for everyday use. The lipstick is soft and full, but not greasy. After applying, you don’t even feel it, unlike some cheap lipsticks, where you can feel the greasy and sticky substance on your lips all the time. The lipstick is hydrating and really stays for a long time. I am definitely a fan! However, I’m not so enthusiastic about the lipstick casing. It looks pretty, modern and futuristic, but it is not practical when you use it. So that’s a shame, but the content of this impractical case compensates largely! You can have a better look at the casing in the general picture above.
6. Colour Fever Eye-shadow Palette n° 1 Unexpected Rosy Taupe
This four-coloured eye-shadow palette is perfect for a rosy taupe smokey eye! The colours vary from light rose to deep burgundy, where the two middle tones have a little sparkle to it. They apply nice and light to your eye and last for the whole evening! The lighter tones are separately also perfect for everyday use.
