As if a trip into Brighton wasn't expensive enough for make-up junkies already, with MAC, Shu Umera, BareMinerals and Space NK boutiques, KIKO has now opened a cosmetics haven in Churchill Square.
I went down on opening day to take a look around and familiarise myself with a brand that I'm sure to be getting a lot of use from, now that there's a store on my doorstep. The product range is absolutely massive, with everybody's tastes and skin types catered for.
There's foundations in every coverage and finish. Rainbows of nail polishes and lipsticks. Glitter, shimmer, matte, and sheen eyeshadows in every shade imaginable. Mascaras that lengthen, curl and volumise. Bronzers, highlighters and finishing powders. Make-up brushes and every make-up bag accessory you could need. And, to my surprise, a large skincare range. The core range is placed around the perimiters of the store whilst, in the middle, you'll find the limited edition collections, currently Miami Beach Babe, Modern Tribes and Generation Next.
Nearly everything is really affordable (a few of the skincare bits are slightly on the pricier side), you're looking at £5 - £8 for a lipstick or eyeshadow, and around £15 for a foundation. So, cheaper than MAC, Benefit etc but definitely matching up in quality!
As you can see, I got a little over-excited and walked away with a haul of new products to play with, so expect a closer look coming to a bloglovin' feed near you soon!
