If you’re in the market for the cutest makeup around at the moment, I’d seriously suggest you take a look at Kiko’s stunning new Candy Split collection! Filled with candy coloured staples as well as some absolutely adorable makeup sponges which look like macarons, it’s a fun way to update your makeup bag! I’ve been loving the Candy Split Lipsticks in 01 and 03 for day and for night! Not only are the colours just beautiful, but the candy striped packaged is just adorable!
Candy Split Lipstick in 01 Cherished Rose is the most perfect bubblegum pink! Applied direct from the bullet, the lipstick gives an opaque wash of colour. I love the shade for a fun pop of colour throughout the day, and even patted onto lips with a finger gives a stunning ombre effect. Since the lipstick has a glossy finish, the wear-time isn’t the longest, but I can get around an hour and a half per application. (And when the lipsticks themselves are as cute as these Kiko offerings, who minds pulling it out for a touch up?)
The second shade in my collection is 03 Violet Glaze, which, for a hardcore neutrals fan like me, is a really dramatic choice! Worn with a natural, low-key tanned makeup look, it’s a fun and modern update for the festive season. The cool toned lipstick leaves teeth looking surprisingly white, and it can be patted on for a sheerer, more subtle effect. The texture is incredibly soft and balmy, so wearing a punchy colour like this feels far less intimidating than normal! It’s also perfect for disguising winter-ravaged lips. Both lipsticks also have a dreamy vanilla scent which is super delicious!
The line includes another two fun shades to choose from (a lavender and a seriously dramatic sage green) and the lipsticks are priced at £5.90 each and are available here.
