Kiko cosmetics lip pencil review - the best affordable lip liners.

If you are looking for good quality and affordable lip liners then you've clicked on the right post! Over the years I have spent hundreds of pounds on lip liners (I would be going into thousands if I mentioned lipsticks 😳), and I can confidently say that I've found the best liners out there for a very affordable price of just £2.99. 
I understand that if you're on a tight budget or don't have much disposable income that you will be seeking the cheapest products out there, but you must be aware of the actual ingredients of the products and their performance - hence why I think that Kiko Milano's Smart Fusion Lip Pencils are 100% worth more than what they are!

I'm going to be honest with you and admit that I did NOT need a new mascara, but what can you do when Kiko has a sale on all their mascaras for only £3.90?! Well, this is what happened... I wanted to get the night treatment mascara but it had sold out so I thought 'might as well try this one' - honestly, I'm so bad! I always use my blog as an excuse to buy more makeup I swear!

My lashes are naturally quite thick and long, but they are very light so I do like to layer up mascara to make them more visible haha - trust me, I've tried many mascaras and they never do exactly what I want them to :(

I really love the idea of this mascara being a black colour as well as with treatment and growth properties (yes!). It can be worn daily as an everyday mascara as it looks very natural, so it's great for school/work etc. as well as for those who don't wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis.

I love the packaging, it reminds me of Sleek's gold packaging of their highlighter palettes. It's great for those who like to collect 'pretty' makeup. The wand, on the other hand, surprised me due to its size. I expected it to be slightly bigger, but then again I guess it's small for more precise application to spread the product out evenly.

The product applies very well, I do find it quite hard to spread it evenly on my lashes because of the wand, but once it's on it looks lovely. It gives a very natural finish and would work great paired up with false lashes as it doesn't leave clumps!

Overall, I do like this mascara to wear to work or when I only have minimal makeup on as it doesn't give me a 'wow' effect but is still nice and natural looking. I probably wouldn't buy it again as I usually like my lashes to look really big, but I will continue enjoying it until it runs out :)

Have you tried any Kiko mascaras before? Would you recommend any?

Lots of love,

2016 || January Favourites

Good Evening Everyone!

I know I've been really naughty and slacking in blogging - I'm really sorry! It's just really hard to find enough time to edit photographs and write long posts while revising for exams and catching up with coursework, hence why all the rubbish short posts on my blog! I promise I'll try harder from now on! 

Right, let's get to the point. I know everyone will start doing the 'Feb Faves' posts, but I need to catch up and do my January Favourites!! So, as most of you know I turned 20 in January. I am officially an adult and I feel sooo old! I can't get away with things like I used to, I need to be responsible (ish) now! :(

My most loved item has to be my Michael Kors watch that I got from my parents as a birthday gift. Just look how beautiful it is! It's the exact same style as most girls already have but they tend to go for the all-round rose gold. I however, wasn't so keen on the rose gold ones as I thought they blended with my skin too much, but when I saw this navy beauty I instantly fell in love and had to have it. It is very unique - I haven't seen anyone wearing the exact same watch as me yet so I guess I have good taste!

Next up - which actually isn't in this picture, is also a birthday gift which I received from my other half. A heart shaped ring with a pink diamond. It is beyond cute and so me!! My boy did well! ;)

My favourite beauty product throughout January has to be MAC's lipstick in Spirit. It is a lovely brown-nude which compliments any skin tone and makes teeth look whiter. I would recommend this shade to those who love a nude lip and aren't a massive fan of Whirl as this is a bit more toned down.

I only recently started using eyelash curlers as I never felt the need to use them - my lashes are naturally curved. However, as I was given Benefit's They're Real for Christmas, I wanted my lashes to stand out even more so I grabbed my Kiko cosmetics lash curlers and omg they are beyond good! 

I was also gifted with an acrylic nail set so I could do my own nails at home, I'm never satisfied when I get my nails done as the staff always mess them up and then try to say that I have wonky fingers!! How rude!! So, I've bought a nude matte nail varnish from Barry M for only £3.99 and that's the only colour I've been wearing all month!

Who had the chance to get hold of Ellie Goulding's MAC collection? Well, I did! I bought one of her lipsticks in shade 'Only You' And the bronzer/blusher compact x2, and also the 209 Rose Gold Eyeliner brush. Let's just say I have no regrets, but my favourite product out of those three has got to be the eyeliner brush as it makes the application so much easier and my liner comes out more precise each time!

Last but not least, my beloved Fairytale Designer Collection at work released beautiful notebooks and we didn't have any in store until somebody had returned them from purchasing them online! And what did I do? I bought them! I've been loving this Peter Pan one the most just because Tinkerbell looks so adorable there! I do own a matching dress from the Fever Collection online store which you can see here.

Have you tried any of these products or own any of the items above? 

Lots of love,
