The Lip Finish | My Beauty Encounter with Kiko Cosmetics Milan.


My name is Vesta and I am a beauty junkie without the budget to currently indulge in 3 Ikea Alex drawers full of make up. Also,  I am kind of a minimalist so I need to go Mari Kondo on my purchases. They have to be worth it and I know better.

Kiko Cosmetics Milano has been taking over our high street over the past few years. They warmed their way into our hearts with an amazing range of nail polishes and now they have the whole kit. I am a chocolate skinned gal and most days my complexion is not part of the selections found in beauty shops. So I am looking for chocolate shades on beauty counters, doing a little research on all the make up brands on the high street and in our department stores. One face beat at a time, I will be matched and slayed for the gawds by in house makeup artists. Photographs will be taken by my creative director and we will show you if I get matched or not.

Of course, the lips will finish the look and that will be brought to you in a unique way.

Here’s my experience and beauty shots in Kiko’s Covent garden space which has a dedicated makeup room downstairs which when pre-arranged(I will) can get you ready fora night in the West end!

My skin was cleansed and moisturised with their in house skincare range, I had no idea they have skincare. Cleansed, toned, moisturised, Silvia matched me to Ebony in their Mat Mousse Oil Free foundation, followed by their invisible touch face fixing powder. I have never been so matte in my life, it was unreal.

She continued by highlighting my cheekbones and giving me a little dramatic Cleopatra eye for my night on the town. It was very simple yet beautiful and something I can try at home. A bit of gold pigment on the centre of my lids was all that was needed to make my eyes pop. So simple and very glam too


My lips were lined with a lip crayon in the shade 315 and topped up with lipstick shades 923 and 914. As you can see I am feeling myself. What do you think of my look? I love it!

Until later,

    Kiko needs to be hyped up some more because they have really good products as well. I've been curious about the fixing powder. Did the matte effect last long?

      I loved the finish! For a person who glistens after 30 minutes, the powder finish was good. I was matte for 3 hours

    Love everything about this look Vesta! I've always been impressed by Kiko's diverse shade range and never understand why British companies can't offer the same x
