Review: Kiko Eyebrow Marker and Quick Dry Nail Lacquer17:23
A few weeks ago my boyfriend went to Italy and I seized the opportunity to send him in Kiko store. Some other too, but unfortunately, they didn't have what I wanted. This is my first ever Kiko purchase. Sadly, I didn't get everything I wanted, because some things were sold out. I really like what I got and will sure be looking up this brand, whenever I'll go somewhere.
This Kiko Eyebrow Marker was really interesting. It promised to be pretty long lasting, like a sort of tattoo. I got it in the shade 02, which is for blondes. Personally, I think the shade is too dark for blondes, but it looks very natural on me.
Eyebrow marker has a sponge tip and it transfers color pretty equally. The tip is sometimes a problem, because I use it over some foundation that's left in between the brows and then the foundation sticks onto the marker, therefore makes it harder to transfer the color.
The shade is like a brown grey shade and it works like a marker. It leaves the slight color, but nothing too obvious or pigmented. The shade is perfect for my natural brows, because my brows are pretty taupe or greyish. I use this marker when I want to achieve very natural looking brows. I find that the pencil cover the whole brow area, therefore making it look a bit fake or overdone. Using this marker, the brows look really natural. I make short strokes to feather additional "fake" hair in between the brows. It lasts a really long time, but is definitely not waterproof.
It costs 5.90 € and there's 1.6 grams of product in it. I don't know for how long this will last, but I have been using it for two weeks or three and it's still as pigmented as it was before.
Here you can also see how buildable the look is with this marker. From just filling in the gaps, to making the brows a lot thicker and fuller.
Since there weren't other things that I wanted, my boyfriend also bought me one of their Quick Dry Nail Lacquers. I got it in this beautiful very dark violet shade called 829. I love the shade and I love the nail lacquer. It dries really quickly, has a bit wider brush, which makes application a dream and one coat is very pigmented.
I did put on two coats, just because I always do that. Here's how it looks like with one and two coats. It dries so quickly that it makes my life a lot easier. It also was pretty long lasting.
There's 10 ml of product in it and it costs 3.90 €.
Overall a pretty good choices and I love the formulas of both products. So far, so good for Kiko. I wish I'll have the chance to try something else as well :).
What have you tired form Kiko and how do you like it?
