Having a mooch around Twitter last week I stumbled across the new KIKO Milano Wanderlust collection and I just HAD to check it out…so I hot-footed it to my nearest store to see which of the products would jump into my basket!
I have seriously reduced the amount of money I have been spending on beauty products so now when I buy something it has to be something I really really really want to try. Now I am a sucker for shiny packaging and the combination of white and rose gold made me almost weep with joy, but I tried to restrain myself and only walked out with four products…although there are a couple I may have to go back for! 😉
I picked up two of the In the Shade Eyeshadow and Kajal sticks in 03 & 04. A shimery green cream eyeshadow with a teal/navy kajal (04) looks like it will be a great night-time smokey combo. I am most excited about the shimmery brown eyeshadow with the electric blue kajal (03) which is going to make my eyes pop! I have yet to wear them but both the eyeshadow and kajal are super creamy and dry down on my hand really quickly with no smudging. I have never tried a lip oil before and I was curious about the Heatwave Lip Oil in Grapefruit. The smell is lovely and it feels hydrating on my lips on application, but within 5-10 minutes disappears. 😦 I would also worry about frying my lips in the sun wearing this oil so unfortunately it will be relegated for indoor use only (i.e. work). A very expensive lip balm indeed! The Out of Bounds Eyeliner Pen is the stand out product here. It’s super easy to apply and once it’s on it does not budge until you want to remove it, and then an oil or micellar water will shift it no problem. Its longevity is similar to The Balm’s Schwing although it does not dry fully matte.
This is a limited edition collection so make sure you grab it as soon as you can. I will be stocking up on the eyeliner for sure!
