KIKO Midnight Siren: First Impressions + Swatches

Today, while I’m on my way to Andalusia, I leave you to a short and sweet first impression post.

Yesterday, I went to a KIKO store to check out their brand new Midnight Siren collection, which features dark, shimmery hues on the eyes, matte lips and glistening skin. I picked up the Moon Shadow in 03 Attractive Plum and the Matte Muse Lipstick in 05 Haughty Mauve.

Moon Shadows are water infused eyeshadow sticks with a cooling effect (similar to Chanel ones). Attractive Plum is a darkened purple with magenta shimmer that I like a lot more on the lids than swatched, as it sheers out really nicely. I see myself using this one very often in the fall for quick and easy evening looks.

Matte Muse is a liquid lipstick that dries down to a full matte finish. It’s long-lasting (it was still perfectly intact after I snacked on a Magnum ice cream bar!), but comfortable to wear, so definitely my kind of lipstick. Haughty Mauve looks more like a purply raspberry pink than mauve to me. I was very attracted to the orangey-red in the collection, but decided to go for something a little different than usual and I’m glad I did.

Have you already spotted this collection? Did you see anything you liked?

    I am not really sure about the eye shadow stick however that lipstick is gorgeous and looks really great on you. Perfect shade for upcoming seasons!

    Those Matte Muse lipsticks look so cool! I am super in love with really matte lips at the moment.

    It seems to look really nice & matte on the lips – I have been looking for a review for this specific lipstick and I’m so glad I found yours. There’s no real shop where I live and I was planning on ordering a bunch of lipsticks from KIKO. Have you also tried the Long Lasting Colour Lip Marker?

      I’m glad you found my post helpful 🙂 I haven’t tried that one, I stay away from that kind of lipsticks because they’re usually very drying. I’ve tried the Velvet Matte Lipsticks and really like them, they have more of a satin finish than fully matte, though.
