Modern Tribes from Kiko



Kiko is a brand I fell in love with after Christmas. When I was on a trip to London, I called into their flagship store on Regent Street. I had read a lot about the Italian brand including that it is loved by makeup artists. Although we don't have a stock list in Northern Ireland, the website is fantastic and easy to order through. I love their Daring Look Eye Marker- the felt tip eyeliner has a long nib making it easy to use for the perfect cat eye. The brand is very affordable and the products are high quality- two pluses for any makeup lover! 

I was recently sent some bits from the new Modern Tribes collection. It feels very 70s inspired. The wooden encased Tri-bal Soul Baked Blush in 03 Wild Mauve* delivers great colour with a hint of shimmer. It reminds me of MAC's MSF's that leave the skin with a healthy glow. The formula of this product is great but it's definitely not a 'handbag' product because of the wooden packaging. However, it looks stunning on my dresser and would make a lovely gift for someone. The lid also has a fabulous mirror in it. 

A great two for one product in the range is the Free Spirit lips and cheeks pencil*. Akin to a Chubby Skin, the formula feels lovely on both lips and cheeks without looking too chalky or glossy. This is a great holiday multi-use product. It also comes with a pencil sharpener- a huge PLUS for me (as I look sharpeners like they are going out of style). 

Lastly, a product I didn't think I would like but ended up loving. Coloured eyeliners largely remind me of my early teenage years and blue liner from No17 at Boots *shivers*, but the Kiko Graphic Ritual Kajal Eyeliner* is grown up and fun. I was sent colour 02 Brave Green Nile. This looks great with my hazel eyes along the bottom lashes. It also comes in gold, navy and violet for £5.90. This product is probably my favourite in the range as it can so easily and cheaply transform a look into summer glam. I know I'll be wearing green liner, lots of lashes and bronzer this summer- retro 70s!
