KIKO Milano - Unlimited Stylo Lipstick Review

KIKO Milano, the Italian born makeup brand has taken Europe by storm and has opened up stores in London and my hometown Brighton, so of course I have visited a few times! When I last went into the store I just had to buy these beauties. The sleek silver design of these lipsticks instantly drew me in and after swatching pretty much every colour on my hand I decided to purchase four.

My first impression is: these lipsticks are straight up MAC dupes and for £6.90 each you can't really go wrong.

Zoeva Makeup Brushes - The Complete Brush Set

I have been relying on a few two year old Real Technique brushes and a Beauty Blender to apply my makeup and I decided I needed to step up my game! However, nothing haunts me more than the thought of spending £22 on a single eyeshadow brush. Luckily, my prayers have been answered by discovering Zoeva Cosmetics

After reading a few reviews I decided to take the plunge and order the 'Complete Brush Set'. It retails at around £90 and comes with 15 brushes in a sophisticated leather pouch. 

I've been using them for a week now and the brushes are amazing quality, plus I've yet to see any bristle fall out. There is a brush for every use from carving out the bottom of your brow, to buffing and setting concealer.
