Who doesn’t love the small things in life? A smile that is given, buying yourself or getting flowers from a loved one, a walk at the beach…Small prices for good quality. If you know me, I love a good item that is worth the money, small or big.
When I was younger, I tried makeup out to see which shade suits my skin tone. I started with brands that didn’t cost much. I tried many brands to find hidden gems, it felt like I was searching for a needle in a haystack. So, I was pleased to find Kiko Milano and Essence Cosmetics.
The price range from Kiko Milano starts at €4 and ends at €25, unless it is a limited edition set, collaboration collection or special occasions collection, a little disclaimer here. From the buys I did, I never got disappointed. It has good pigment; it doesn’t smell toxic or bad and the structure of the makeup feels soft and easy to apply. I’m using the Green Me hydrating BB Cream in shade Porcelain for more than a year now and when I have nothing left of it, it goes straight into my virtual shopping basket. I’m also obsessed with their lip glosses. Not only does Kiko Milano has beautiful shades, but it also has a non-toxic smell or feel. Which is amazing, you don’t wat to apply something on your lips that doesn’t feel right, right? The bronzers are also pretty goodies that I love to use, same goes for their highlighters. The bronzers are not too dark for my skin tone and the highlighters are good pigmented and gives that perfect glow during my day.
When it comes to nail polishes, eye and lipliners is Essence Cosmetics my BFF. Love the many colors I can use while I play with my makeup. I’m a sucker for eye looks, so the eyeliners are perfect to start with. I only use the lipliners when I want a full makeup look, I mostly do when I’m invited for parties. In my case: Moroccan weddings. When I visit the drugstore, I always walk by the makeup aisle. I always look if Essence Cosmetics has a new collection. When it does, I look at their lipsticks and glosses. Nine out of the ten times I put it in the shopping basket. If I urge myself, I don’t need it I put it back. If not, I lost to the urge.
