Kiko Cosmetics is an Italian makeup brand that is very popular in Europe and it’s just gaining it’s popularity in the States. It’s a reasonably priced brand but with quality that’s comparable to most higher end brands. The pricing is almost drugstore and you’re getting the packaging and quality of a higher end brand which is pretty unique. Every year they do LE summer collections which I’m pretty excited about because they always have the prettiest packaging and great products for the summer.
Two new products launched last week on maccosmetics.com, the Pro Longwear Waterproof Colour Sticks and five new shades from the Prep+Prime Highlighters that will be part of their permanent line. I haven’t tried any of the old shades of the Prep+Prime Highlighters so I was excited to try the new shades since I’ve heard great things about them and I’m all about cream eyeshadows so of course I was stoked about MAC’s new release.
When it comes to my base for spring and summer I prefer it to be lighter and more glowy than usual. There’s something about the warmer weather and the heat that makes me not want to wear medium to full coverage foundations and stick with something that feels light on the skin. When I think about it for every day use I actually prefer a lighter base and keep the full coverage bases for special occasions and going outs.
I feel that everything L’oreal launches under their Infallible Pro line I end up liking. Their Infallible Pro Matte foundation is one of my favorite long wearing base that comes from the drugstore and the Infallible 24h Eye Shadows are also pretty up there when it comes to quality eyeshadows.
I’ve been testing out some new skincare bits from Estée Lauder that are mainly for night time use and I’ve been really enjoying them. I love to use more potent serums and skincare in general when it comes to my nighttime skincare routine because your skin regenerates while you sleep so the better the products you use the better your skin will look when you wake up.
As soon as the Becca Luminous blushes launched I grabbed the two shades that were a preview for the collection and I already did a blog post about them that you can read here. If you read the previous post you know I’m a big fan of the two shades that I tested so I was super excited when I received a package from Becca with all six shades of their Shimmering Skin Perfector Luminous Blushes.
