Kiko Cosmetics finally has made its way to the United States! They recently opened up a store in New York City, as well! This is one of five locations through out the country. I heard about Kiko from a friend of mine when I was doing her makeup. She mentioned briefly how pigmented their lip glosses were! Ya’ll know that’s ALL it took for me to want to check it out for myself! I made my way over to Queens Center Mall and ended up leaving with a decent amount of goodies! I was trying to refrain from buying the whole entire store.
Let’s get to know Kiko Milano as a brand before we get into the spec’s 🙂 – According to their website:
Over 1.200 professional makeup and skincare products and advanced accessories.
Founded in 1997, KIKO MILANO is an Italian professional cosmetics brand that has revolutionized the rules of cosmetics and won over the most demanding beauty addicts with over 600 points of sale in 8 countries in Europe (Italy, Spain, France, Portugal, Germany, United Kingdom, Austria and Switzerland) with its presence in 34 nations (thanks to its online service delivery) and now with its new opening in U.S.
KIKO MILANO is constantly committed to a single objective: to allow all women to treat themselves to the most innovative cosmetics without having to sacrifice their budget. Quality is no longer synonymous with high prices.
The KIKO MILANO universe is an example of innovation in form – due to its display with the largest makeup color palette made of vibrant and pure pigments – and in substance, thanks to the exclusive formulas and the revolutionary texture of its skincare products. Behind each product is the excellent research of an expert scientific team that develops new technologies and original formulas.
High quality and extreme safety in addition to creativity, taste, and a focus on detail. That’s how KIKO MILANO ensures the finest standards of excellence through products that are both gentle and highly effective:
Makeup and skincare formulas are produced in Europe and in the USA
The range is subjected to accurate and in-depth safety evaluation
The clinical tests are performed by university institutes and dermatological clinics
The control of every product and each ingredient complies with the regulations enforced by EU and US law. In addition, KIKO has a black list of cosmetic ingredients permitted by law in various countries but still not good enough for the brand.
Here are some goodies that I purchased:
Kiko Makeup Milano Lip Pencils
(Wanted to experiment with their liners first because there were on sale for like 4 bucks!)
One thing that I noticed was these products do not have any names. Everything goes by numbers at Kiko Cosmetics. My sister Paulie, also suprised me with a few goodies from Kiko and Sonia Kashuk! She got me two of everything! One for myself and for me to put in my kit. Peep the products and Swatches below 🙂 (thankyou sis, you are awesome beyond words!)
The Lip Liners are superb in quality! I wore one to work one day underneath an inglot liptick, and all I kept getting was compliments. Kiko Cosmetics also has a vast skincare line too! I will most definitely be going back to check that out! Their lipsticks last all day, too! Let me know if you want a more detailed review on these products. For the most part, this is my haul!
