Kiko Cosmetics

Hi everyone,

I know its been a while since I last posted on my blog. Well, if you are familiar to my YouTube Channels, you would know my little daughter is taking all my attention and time! :-) But, I promise to squeeze in some time to do my videos and blog posts on regular basis.

Today I want to write about  KIKO Cosmetics Eyeshadow creamy sticks. It is an Italian brand and they are so good! They have these sleek look with retractable plastic packaging with beautiful range of colours.
Although it glides on the eyelids smoothly almost like a butter but after few seconds it almosts sticks to the eyelids and doesn’t smudge! Which is pretty good for non-creasing of the eyemakeup.
Also they could work like a primer.

I got mine in four deep jewel tones  10Emerald Green, 16Purple, 17Midnight Blue, 37Burgundy  which could easily give some depth to my eyes.

Almost transforms my monolid eyes to doublelid!  And I wear them so much these days.

Next, I also have thier travel makeup brushes pouch. Which I think every makeup enthusiastic who loves to travel should possess.
Its a compact lavender zip pouch which could fit easily in any handbag with a high quality brush hair.
Inside it has 9 brushes(considering its double ended).

1. Foundation brush.

2. Eyeshader & Smudger

3. Angled eyedhader & Crease brush

4. Eyeliner & Lip brush

5. Concealer & Pencil brush

These came so handy during my getaways and holiday travels(which is quite evident by the look of dirt on it) ;-)
So compact yet filled with all necessary brushes.

Now for the pricing, they are not super expensive. I paid Euro 6.90 per eyeshadow stick and Euro 16.90 for the Travel Brush Set.

Moreover the prices can vary depending on the country too.

Definitely a good brand with fair pricing and quality products.

Hope you found my review helpful if you are thinking of bringing Kiko Cosmetics on your vanity.

Do tell me what’s been your exotic new brand and product recently?

Much Love,
Tina :-)

LAKME FASHION WEEK – Sabyasachi Mukherjee Show Inspired Look

Hi everyone,

I always look forward to Lakme Fashion Week of India, since it brings in new style, fabric combinations and of course new creative designs from Indian Designers – fresh and seasoned!
Also, the very fact that I am an Indian and live in India! ;-)

Each Year the Fashion Week has new trends in makeup, hair and fabric colors and textures, which I like to personally follow(like just another fashion loving eyes).

And talking about authentic Indian couture with a sprinkle of modernity and regality, one of my favorite Indian designer who comes on my mind is ‘Sabyasachi Mukherjee’.

Lakme Absolute Grand Finale, saw Traditional Indian wear with a twist of modernity! As Sabyasachi said about Absolute Royal collection, ‘Royalty living on the edge’. 
This season saw a lot of Gold Shimmer, Baroque and sort of whimsical look to the winter/festive collection.

One of the look which caught my eyes was the satin saris with baroque work on the front pleats of the saree and the blouse was sort of retro with broad stripes (don’t miss the models wearing cool goggles)!

What an elegant way to show ‘Royalty living on the edge’!

And, I choose to recreate the Lakme Fashion Week Day 5 Look from Sabyasachi Mukherjee 2013 show.

And of course, I choose all Lakme products to recreate the Look.

1. Lakme Invisible Finish Foundation: A very natural light weight liquid foundation which blends into the skin effortlessly. SPF 8 and mild floral scent adds up the points. If you have less blemishes and need light to no coverage then this foundation would be perfect.
Also, suits for back-to-school makeup or anyone who needs natural neat makeup.

2. Lakme Eyebrow pencil: I used a black eyebrow pencil to give a strong and defined frame to my face. But comes in only black shade which can come out bit strong on brows.
So, the trick for a natural finish would be to apply gently with a brush.

3. Lakme Satin Finish Kajal: This smooth and creamy Kajal/Kohl went on as my eye shadow base to create the Smokey deep look to my eyes.
A great product for a quick black smoky eye makeup.

4. Lakme Eye shadow ‘Tanjore Rush': The coppery brown shade went on the black base of my eyelids and I smoked it our lightly to give a bit of grunge look which gives the eye look more mystery. Personally, I think the shades in the palette is very Indian.

5. Lakme Glitter Liner ‘Silver': Now, it might not be very clear in the picture above but I did try zooming it out and found a light hint of sheen in the inner corners of the eyes. And so, I used silver liner to add the sheen(you could also use silver/gold eye shadow).
If you want the sheen to look strong and stay for long time then liquid liners do their job.

6. Lakme Eye conic Mascara: I love the way the mascara wand is curve shaped which gives easier application to the lashes.
I used it on my bottom lashes only as I used fake ones on my top lashes.

7 & 8. Lakme Highlighter Duo: I used the darker side to contour my face and lighter side to highlight my face.
I don’t see any blush going on in the picture and so I didn’t use any.

9. Lakme Absolute Matte Lipstick: I love this lipstick formula since not all matte finish stays creamy for long. But, this matte finish gives an easy smooth application and feels light and creamy on lips for a long time.
And I used ‘Red Hot’ shade, which I think works wonderful for the Fall season!

And to recreate that 60’s high permed messy hairstyle as in the Inspired Picture above, I braided my hair overnight, back combed, sprayed and styled (easier on a second day hair)!
