Kiko Milano is an Italian cosmetics brand that I first heard of last year. I’ve seen it mentioned and/or featured on some blogs before but primarily from bloggers that live in Europe. I’ve also seen it a bit on some beauty YouTubers’ videos who bought some products while away in Europe for vacation. I always thought it looked like a cool brand to check out, but I never looked into it since it seemed to be a European brand and I didn’t care enough to check if they shipped to the US.
Then, one day I was at a mall near me that I don’t go to often and saw that they opened a Kiko Milano store! Not a counter inside a department store, but a for real standalone store. Of course, I went right in and saw they had a wide variety of products available in the store and everything seemed to be very reasonably priced. After walking around the store a few times and browsing and swatching, I decided to buy 2 items.
I got the Frosted Look Lipstick in the shade Rosetto and an eyeshadow palette. The palette says “Color Fever” but I’m not sure if that’s the name of the quad I got or the line? As mentioned above, everything seems to be reasonably priced. I think my total was under $30 and I remember the quad was exactly $20. It’s obviously a bit more than a drugstore price (but not by much with some of the drugstore brands these days!), but definitely less than high-end.
Since the brand is completely new to me, is there anything that you guys who have used the brand before recommend I try? I’d love to hear your thoughts and recommendations!
