2014 Beauty Favorites Part 2: Makeup

2014 beauty favorites

Welcome back to part 2 of my 2014 yearly favorites! Last time I told you about my top skincare picks, you can read it here if you missed it, and today we’re talking makeup! It was difficult to reduce the amount of products to something that would fit in one post, especially regarding lipsticks and nail polish. I just use and love so many that it was a torture to only pick a few (melodramatic, I know). Brace yourselves, this is a long one!

A KIKO haul

Ah, if there’s one thing that works on me are emails with discount codes, so when Kiko’s Halloween discount came in, together with discounted shipping, just around my birthday last month, I couldn’t help myself and ordered a few goodies. 

I’m a big fan of liquid liners so I picked up three of the Kiko Super colour eyeliners in 104 Dark Slate Green, 107 Blue Majorelle and 110 Pearly Regal Purple. I see myself using theses a lot, can’t wait! More on the same vibe, I got the Color Kajal in 104 Red, which is more of an orange to be honest, kind of disappointed in that, I was looking forward to getting a red pencil, but I’m degressing. From the Daring Game collection I then added the Mistery Smokey Eye Pencil in 6 Powerful Burgundy to my stash. I just love the color and will be the perfect smokey eye base.
Now the next buy was enabled by a british beauty blogger I follow, don’t remember excatly whether it was Lily Pebbles or Anna of VDM. She compared the Kiko Precision Eyebrow Pencil to the Anastasia Brow Wiz, and since I’m slightly obsessed with brows, I though it was a great product to try. It is a very very thin pencil with a small comb on the other side and comes with its own sharpener because it won’t fit in any for your normal sharpeners. I got the shade 03 Auburn and Redheads and I’ll let you know what my thoughts are, I’m very curious. 
Last makeup bits are three Nail Lacquers in the shades 322 Caffe Latte, 370 Hazelnut and 324 Dark Chocolate. Not much to say here, I love Kiko’s nail polishes, they’re very affordable and I didn’t have any brown toned nail polishes so I got myself both warm and more cool toned ones.
Since a few skincare bits were 50% off, I also got myself the Winter Sunscreen SPF 30 which is quite a smart contraption. The cream comes in a tube and in the cap you have a small balm for lips and eye area. Brilliant and perfect for my ski holidays in January!
So that was all I ordered from kikocosmetics.eu, shipping was only 3€ and it only took a bit over a week to arrive. Lovely service.
I hope you enjoyed the haul! What are your favorite Kiko products?
