New loves from KIKO

Summer's almost over but I'm still loving reds and oranges, someone help me or I won't be properly 'ready' to face the arrival of Autumn/Winter!

Hasn't Summer lasted for like absolute AGES here in the UK, well at least London? I went to Italy for a holiday and came back expecting London to be gloomy and dull but na-ah, it ain't giving up on sunshine yet.

KIKO's Creamy Lipgloss is a lovely take on the regular lip crayons as it's extremely glossy. It was so glossy that I couldn't take a picture of it as it displayed only shine and no colour. Now this can be a good or a bad thing for you. I know some people hate glossy reds as they feel it can make them look slutty quite easily.

I don't really care for what people think as long as I personally love how it looks one me. I feel it looks quite vintage and is reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour. Think Marilyn Monroe who I'm a huge fan of. If you want those luscious, big, red lips with a hint of orange to it then you've got to try this one. It's superbly pigmented and applies really well. I have to say it's a little sticky on the lips but works fine for longevity.

I don't quite get the trend of duo nail paints to be honest as if I like a nail polish colour, I'll buy that and if I like two, I'll get two so why do brands have to present us with a duo? If you're spoilt for choice however and like to opt for preset colour combinations, KIKO's Multi Effect Nail Lacquer is quite cool. One colour's opaque here and one's a little translucent. Both have such a gorgeous, glossy gel nail type finish to them. I'm so glad KIKO kept it modern and presented complimentary colours. Ombre nails anyone?

Lastly, just a shout out to those looking for serums on a budget. While browsing through their website, I found KIKO do some amazing ones for under £15. £15!!! What?! You don't even get a moisturiser for the price let alone treatment serums. Now I haven't tried any but have my eyes glued to them. Just thought would let you guys know if you don't have tonnes to spend on extravagant Estee Lauder serums.

Kiko is love-hate brand for me. Some of their products work wonderfully on me, others just...don't.
I think that their "season" collections are something worth searching for. Specially the ones involving blushes and highlighters.

Please Take Care, have a nice day**

Like you I was very excited about the multi-effect nail polishes and I've got a review of exactly this nail polish coming up tomorrow. All I'll say right now is that I wasn't impressed. Xx
