Hello :)

I've recently purchased this KIKO eyeshadow #174 in Westfield Stratford store and I've decided to do a short review and makeup with it. It's a warm taupe colour with pearl finish but it's not too shiny.

It is nice size eyeshadow (3g) for £3. The pigmentation is very good and it didn't crease on me for whole 7 hours I had them on. Well I generally don't have problem with creasing as I have dry skin so I cannot guarantee that it won't crease on oily skin. It blended nicely and I will definitely try to pick few more shades (it will be hard though because they have looooots of shades!).

Eyeshadow comes in black box with hole so you can see the shade, something like MAC box only bigger.  The packaging is shiny black case with transparent lid and each eyeshadow has embossed word KIKO in it. I like this little detail.


And I did a quick makeup with this eyeshadow...nothing crazy, just nice day makeup :) For this look I've used Too Faced Shadow Insurance, MUA Shade 1 (champagne pearl) , KIKO 174 and a bit of MAC Carbon. As eyeliner I've used MAC Blacktrack.

Hello lovelies,

on Friday I've visited the Westfield Stratford shopping centre in London. My primary interest was the OPI Colourcopia shop carrying the whole OPI sortiment and Nicole By OPI polishes...well I spent about three hours looking for that shop and after three hours I found out that the shop is in Westfield London, not Stratford (Stratford is in London but it is the name of centre too) :D I had no idea there are two Westfield shopping centres :D This put me off a little but I am sooo happy I stumbled across KIKO shop! I thought this brand is sold only in Netherland but apparently it's an Italian brand and there are KIKO shops in both Westfield Shopping centres.

I absolutely loved the shop! So many colours of eyeshadows (only £3) and nail polishes (£4.90). It was really hard to choose just few but I know I will be definitely returning soon and getting more colours. This is what I bought:

I wasn't allowed to take pictures of all the eyeshadow and the shop interior but after little but of persuasion and leaving my blog address I was allowed to take pictures of the nail polishes section (that one is the best anyway :D). There were testers for each colour!!! I love that and I was trying pigmentation of polishes before buying them, so far all I've tried had very good pigmentation. Enjoy the colourful pictures:

And since it's coming to Christmas there were really beautiful Xmas decorations all over the centre...
