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?
