I’ve always been a little skeptical about primers in general. I’ve used a few over the years and I find I use them for a few weeks but they generally just fall off my radar. The other thing I am guilty of is buying things on whim and that’s how this one happened!. I showed you my little Kiko haul a few weeks ago and one of the impulse purchases I made was the Kiko Skin Trainer CC Blur. I bought it because I thought maybe this one was going to change my run of primer luck!
I’m just back from Tenerife where the family were celebrating my amazing Nans 90th birthday. She’s a real inspiration that having a positive attitude towards life is the key to enjoying it! I’ve been to Tenerife a few times and one thing I really like is the cosmetics bargains! Skincare and perfume tends to be a lot cheaper than at home and there are so many outlets they’re all competing on price. You can also scope out some nice makeup and I came across massive Flormar and Kiko stores. I couldn’t resist picking up a few bits so I thought I’d show you what I bought!
Last week I shared my summer body skincare picks with you and I thought I’d show you what I’m turning to for my summer makeup. These is my day to day look that’s pretty simple and natural, nothing too fancy but perfect for the office.
Well I am a bit of a sucker for a trend but as a beauty blogger that’s a dangerous space to be in. You have to be careful not to get suckered into buying every new trend on the block or it’s a surefire way to brokesville. The new cushion foundations really caught my eye though. I remember British Beauty Blogger Jane predicting this would be the next big thing to come from Korea a while back and I’ve been tempted to order one from my fave Korean cosmetics online store. However I was recently in a Kiko store in France and spotted their new cushion foundation and decided to give it a whirl.
I’m having great fun trying out all of the products I got in my recent France haul here. I’ve never tried Kiko before so was excited to give their products a whirl. I expected to like the Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow as they come so highly recommended by beauty bloggers but I am actually wowed by the Water Eyeshadow!
Well colour me Kiko at the moment. I am all over the Kiko products since my little France haul. I couldn’t get over how cheap some of the Kiko goodies are, the skincare in particular is great value with most items hovering around the €10 mark. I love anything with peel in the name as it usually means it’s a safe way for me to exfoliate my skin without scrubbing it. So when I spied the Kiko Anti-Age Peeling Gel for just under €7 I knew it had my name written all over it.
Well I just returned from a weekend in Disneyland Paris (big child that I am) and it would have been downright rude for me not to buy some beauty bits while I was there. Val D’Europe is a big shopping centre beside Disney that has some lovely shops including a great French Pharmacie, Sephora and Kiko. I spent a good two hours perusing the stores so of course I had to share my haul.
