Kiko Haul

Hands up, who else is a sucker for affordable make up with cute packaging? I’m seeing a few hands up… Perfect. Not just me then!

So Steve and I went shopping last week, only to find a present, and I happened to stumble across a big sale in Kiko Cosmetics… I couldn’t just walk past the shop, that would be rude!

So I’m having a gander at the pretty things, and this sales woman comes over and gives me a basket… This can only mean trouble!

Steve and I spent ages looking at the stands, and I made a few choices. Here is what I got…

So all this for the grand total of £23. Not at all bad. Having looked at the website at the full price of these products, I should have parted with a total closer to £40. But the sale was incredible and the discounts were very tempting.

The first thing I picked up was as the Pencil Lip Gloss in Shade 12. It’s a gorgeous deep red/brown shade, which would ordinarily be perfect for Autumn. It’s a gorgeous creamy consistency and I personally think it would be a stunning shade to wear all year round. Being a pencil it’s convenient for hand bags and travel bags, and glides on so easily.

(RRP £3.90, purchased for £2.70)

Next up is the Eyebrow Marker in Shade 06. It’s a tattoo effect pen which I can only assume its long lasting…I’ll have to try it to see. It’s a lovely brown colour, and I wanted to step away from black as it can be too heavy, especially for work. So this is a welcome addition to my make up collection.

(RRP £5.90, purchased for £4.10)

The next product is a Full Coverage Concealer. Now I could be quite happy to try every concealer going as I have quite dark circles under my eyes. This is such a thick concealer, and when I swatched it on my hand, it was amazing. I was so stunned to see my hand become so light and the area I applied it was fully covered. I hope its the same for under my eyes…. It’s in Shade 01, and there were many shades for all different skin types.

(RRP £7.50, purchased for £5.20)

Here is the beautiful Cream Crush in Shade 04. Isn’t it gorgeous? It’s a lovely light cream in a dark chocolate brown colour. It’s a perfect eye primer, or a stand alone colour for the eyelids. I love this! I highly recommend this product!

(RRP £6.90, purchased for £3.40)

I then went to the eyeshadow section, as I have tried these before and love them. They are very versatile and blend together so easily. They are a velvet consistency, and apply so smoothly. The colours are just beautiful. I could have quite easily got more than these 3, but that would be greedy! The shades are (from top to bottom), 08, 11 and 02.

(RRP £2.50 each, purchased for £1.70)

Lastly, I got a nail varnish. I was so intrigued by this colour. It’s a gorgeous teal green, but I love it. I think it will be prefect for my toe nails when I got on holiday in April. Its a nail varnish. I don’t really have anything else to say about it…. Haha.

(RRP £4.90 purchased for £2.50)

So there it is… A little shopping haul from a wonderful company. I love Kiko and will happily go back and get some more in the future. Have you got anything from the Kiko Range? Do you have an recommendations? Let me know in the comments!

See you in my next post,

Whats in my Bag?

OK, so for those of you who watch YouTube, you will know that pretty much every beauty guru has done the ‘Whats in my Bag’ tag. Me being no exception.
However, I find making videos for my channel (unless Im vlogging…) really quite difficult. So, now that Luke is asleep, I thought I would do the tag….in the form of a blog!
2 birds, 1 stone springs to mind right now!!



Firstly, lets take a second to appreciate the bag – I think she is beautiful!!
My bag is a medium, black Fiorelli bag, with white piped side detailing. Unfortunately, I think this particular one has been discontinued, but you may be able to pick one up in an outlet store or on Ebay.
I also can’t tell you how much it was, as it was a Christmas present from Steve in 2012. Since having Luke, I haven’t really used handbags because I put everything into the changing bag. But, I can now go back to my bags, as I carry a Jake and the Neverland Pirates backpack for Luke, and now my stuff wont fit in it!

What is in this bad boy I hear you ask? Lets have a look…


So, firstly, all the things I cannot leave the house without ; diary, phone, purse and keys.
~ The diary is from Calendar Club (RRP £7.99)
~ Phone is the iPhone 4S,
~ Purse is from United Colours of Benetton from TKMaxx (RRP £8.99)
and…..my key.


Then I have some smellies –
~ Simple deodorant,
~ Vaseline anti-perperant,
~ Impulse ‘Sweet Smile’ body spray and my signature scent,
~ Amor Amor by Cacharel.
Obviously, it is important to carry around these things, as I don’t like to smell!


This little collection of stuff is pretty random – (spot the fruit theme….which is in no way intentional!)
~ Hair brush,
~ Citrus scented antibacterial gel (RRP 99p from Wilkinson),
~ Lemony Flutter cuticle butter from Lush (although I use it as a hand cream and it smells delicious!!) RRP £…can’t remember!
~ Strawberry scented tissues, (RRP £1 for 10 packets…Poundland)
~ Sticky Fingers wipes (these are essential, being a mummy to a grub magnet!) These are from Tesco and retail at 89p
~ Chewing gum,
~ 2 pens, and
~ Bottle of water. (Although I have to be honest, I hate water…)


I am feeling quite proud of myself for only having 4 lip products in my bag at this particular time. I have to admit, its usually in double digits!! I am currently carrying;
~ Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss
~ Maybelline Baby Lips – Intense Care
~ Revlon Colour Stay Lipstick in Creamy Coral
~ NYC Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm in Caramel Apple
I suffer with dry, cracked lips, so I never leave home without a lip product…or 4 it would seem!

and finally….some randoms odds and sods.


I have
~ Plasters…obvious reasons…
~ Heartburn tablets – I only occasionally suffer with the dreaded burn, but I carry them with me as a precaution,
~ Passport – I had an interview yesterday, and thought it might be useful…
~ Rubbish – because no handbag is complete without a little crap!!

So that is everything that is in my bag! Whats in your bag?

Thanks for reading!!
