Get in the NYE mood with Kiko !

Kiko Milano not only stands for affordable cosmetics, they also have a keen eye for nice-looking products and packaging. The Arctic Holiday collection has been designed by the famous, award-winning artist and industrial designer Ross Lovegrove. The North Pole, wide open spaces with intense light, icy crystals and frosty glaciers inspired him to create these limited editions with a glacial touch. These are the stars of the collection.

Kiko’s Baked Powder comes in an elegant compact case with an inner mirror. I like the smooth, silky texture of this face powder. It mattifies the skin and has a soft-focus effect which blurrs small imperfections.

The Tree Make Up Blender is a nice-to-have rather than a must. I found the tree shape not so easy to work with, however, the pointed top is great for blending the undereye area! The Arctic Holiday Eyeliner is a long-lasting duo eyeliner pencil, available in two versions. 01 is a pearly white, combined with an intense matte black on the other end. The black shade is ultra-creamy, which made me doubt the lasting power, but not to worry. It sets quickly and stays put, just as it should. It also comes in 02, a stunning Brown & Metallic Copper.

If you’re not very handy in applying mascara, you might like Arctic Holiday Volume Mascara. The teardrop shape of its wand is more tapered than most mascara wands and it’s shorter as well, which makes precise application easy. This mascara contains fibers for a lengthening and volume-enhancing effect, and thanks to the waxes in the formula it goes on effortlessly and it doesn’t flake. The Arctic Holiday Matte Lipstick comes in an elegant casing with a handbag-friendly magnetic click-closure. If you go for shimmery and intense eyes, soft matte lips are a nice contrast. 01 Blushed Pink provides your lips with an opaque, pinkish nude color with an ultra-matte finish.

There is more to discover in the Arctic Holiday collection: you’ll also find a baked blush, a holographic highlighter -which I really like-, single and trio eyeshadows, sparkly nail polished and a glitter kit.
