Kiko Cosmic Starlets Collection
Kiko has been one of my favourite inexpensive makeup brands for years and they are one of the few 'highstreet' makeup brands that have regular collections which I love! The christmas collection this year is the Cosmic Starlets collection which is divided into four looks, all of which would be perfect for the festive season and new year, including: The Temptress, The Romantic, The Free Spirit and The Innocent. As well as the looks, of which The Innocent and The Romantic are my favourites, there are also lovely festive gift sets and fragrances.

I was very kindly sent a few products from the christmas collection and I am so impressed with all of the products, as I often am with Kiko makeup and I especially love the festive packaging! For swatches of all the products I have featured in this post, check out the video at the end (sorry the quality isn't great, damn winter weather and dark afternoons #BloggerProblems).

*Kiko Night Sky Eyeshadow Palette (£19.90, Nude to Elegant): I have always been impressed with the Kiko quads I have purchased over the years, so much so that I made up my own custom palette earlier this year and it has appeared in a few favourites posts. Kiko shadows are so buttery smooth, pigmented on the whole and so easy to blend with minimal fall down and these are no exception. The shades in this palette are all cool toned which I don't usually choose as I think warmer toned shadows suit my complexion the most so the Nude to Smokey palette is on my wish list; although sadly both palettes are currently sold out online so I'll have to visit my local store in the Trafford Centre to see if they have it. The palette contains a good range of shades from a light shimmery highlight and matte crease colours to deep smokey and shimmer shades that would be perfect for a smokey eye.

*Kiko Dazzling Highlighter (£6.90, 04 Bright Rose): This was one of the products in the store that I instantly wanted! The shade looks very pink toned in the packaging as the name would suggest but it looks gorgeous and iridescent on the skin. It isn't a subtle highlight as the shimmer is noticeable which isn't for everyone but it catches the light beautifully!

*Kiko Glam Kajal Eyeliner Duo (£7.90, Black): Kiko always seems to be one of the very few brands that always bring out new, innovative and interesting products that usually take other brands of a similar price range much longer to introduce. The eyeliner duo features a soft and creamy kajal eyeliner that is perfect for creating a smokey eye or smokey liner look; the longevity and pigmentation is fantastic! The product also contains a liquid eyeliner too which is very black and pigmented; it would be perfect for travelling.



Overall, I have been so impressed with the majority of the Kiko products I've tried and these are no exception. I would definitely recommend the christmas collection and I think they would make fantastic gifts - I know that I would be happy to receive some Kiko products under the tree!

What do you think of the new Cosmic Starlets collection? Do you have any favourite products from Kiko?

  8. These look great! I love that Kiko come out with collections, it think it's something the drugstore skimps on but is a really nice touch. I wish there were a store closer to me, but I'm glad they make their ingredients available on their website so I can order if something catches me eye. Xx
