MAC and KIKO Haul


So it was time to spend the MAC gift card that I was given about 5 months ago, I also popped into Kiko and found a few things, so here's what I got:

  • MAC Strobe Cream Hydrant Lumineux
  • Kiko nail lacquer in 66
  • MAC Pro Conceal and Correct Palette
  • Kiko Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick in 316 Vintage Rose

Find out more below ⬇


MAC Strobe Cream Hydrant Lumineux
When I saw this product I was instantly excited! The strobe cream is designed to highlight and add glow to the skin. The term strobe has been popular recently with the 'strobing' trend. Strobing is simply highlighting the face on the areas that you want to shine. I have applied it under my foundation and also I have tried mixing it with my foundation. I found that the strobe cream made my foundation look dewy and gives my skin a healthy glow. This product comes in two sizes, I bought the smaller size 30ml for £10.00. I love the finish of this product, it is definitely a new favourite of mine!






Kiko nail lacquer in 66
I spent my time in Kiko picking the perfect nail varnish to go with a particular dress that I was going to be wearing. I spent that long looking at all the colours that I felt as if the security guard thought I was up to something! I came across colour 66, and was pretty much sold as soon as I tested it, I bought this product for £3.90. It is a lovely colour and it has a nice shine too it.




 

MAC Pro Conceal and Correct Palette
I have known about this palette for a while and I have been admiring it from afar, so it was finally time to get my hands on it. What I like about this product is that not only are you concealing but also colour correcting. The palette is very versatile and comes with six shades. There are four different palettes, suitable for different skin shades. I bought this in Light for £35.00. I have really enjoyed using this, it definitely does the job, it is a keeper!






Kiko Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick
I was impressed with Kiko's new matte lipstick collection and had a hard time choosing which to buy. I really loved how this product looked on the lips, which is why I was gutted when I left it on a bus! Sad times! The lipstick is matte but not drying at all and I found it very easy to apply. I really like the design of the packaging, particularly the magnet at the top of the tube which keeps the lipstick in place, (which is also fun to play with!) I particularly liked the shade Vintage Rose.

    1. Thank you Rachel! Yeah, they do a lager tube which is more expensive, but I think you actually get more for your money with the smaller tube!! I hope you have had a great day!
