New in: Make up! Ft. Kiko Milano, YsL & Dior

 Hey Dolls & Gents! 

Treated myself to some new new recently and thought I'd share my little haul with you! 


I was walking by the Kiko store and saw they had a sale and (if you know me, you know I can't ever walk past a make up sale!) anyway, I walked in just to check out what they had and picked up some make up wipes that were on sale for £1.50 each and some concealers that I believe where £4.50?

Good price I thought, HOWEVER! I'm massively disappointed in the range of shades they have for darker skins. I mean I'm not the darkest black woman but the jump between the lightest colour for black women and the next colour up was ridiculous! As you can see in the photo, I got Shade 06 & 07....but the difference is HUGE! There was no other shade inbetween. Plus, Shade 06 looks like its for yellow undertones, while shade 07 looks like its for red undertones. I have a yellow undertone, but Make up brands need to do better with assuming that everyone with a yellow undertone is fair skinned! Many darker skinned people have yellow undertones!

Anyway I bought the two and figured I could use the darker one for contouring... we'll see how it goes! I'll do a review once I've tried them! 


So Another impromptu purchase! Oops! Always wanted to try Dior make up! Can't believe I haven't until now. Anyway I was in Covent Garden heading to the Giorgio Armani store and I decided to pop in! I picked up the Dior Addict Lipgloss in shade 629 which is the prettiest brown-nude glittery lipgloss. Perfect for the summer and to be worn with a brown lip liner for a simple but glam look!

Also got the Dior Rouge Brilliant lipgloss which has more pigmentation and gives and overall nude colour on the lips. I'm obsessed with nudes so I just had to indulge!!


Popped into YSL at House of Fraser and also picked up a few lipsticks. The Rouge Volupte shine in number 9 is the perfect sparkly sheer lipstick with a hint of colour. It looks pink but it definitely shows up nude on me. (Let me know if you'd like to see lip swatches of my favourite nude lip and lip combos in the comments!)

Also picked up the Rouge Pur couture in number 6. Which is quite simply THE PERFECT NUDE!! I can't wait to try it!!

What do you guys think? Do you have any of these? 

What's you're favourite nude lip look? Let me know in the comments! 

As always stay glam! 

Love, Kiksy
