Kiko Milano Wanderlust Limited Edition Collection

It is not often I see a makeup collection and yearn for it, but with Kiko Milano Wanderlust Limited Edition Collection, I very much wanted it because it is just stunning and I have already shared some of it on my Instagram. The Wanderlust design is just beautiful to look in all its coral gold glory and the collection is pretty impressive with over 15 different products and I was lucky enough to see them all on display in the Covent Garden Kiko Store last week, have a play with them and get advice from on-hand make-up artists about what would and wouldn't work with my own skintone.

In collaboration with Ross Lovegrove, the world reknown futurist designer, the Wanderlust collection is dedicated to people who love travelling and seeking adventure. Using a combination of elegance, sensuality, Femininity, cheerfulness and practicality, the term 'Kikoness' was born. 

The first item which stands out is the clutch bag, it is just beautiful and as I have got three weddings to go to this year, I am sure you will be seeing more of it! Featuring a rigid pochette with embossed KK logo, something you will see right across this range, is also a zipper closure. This clutch bag can be used in a variety of ways depending on what takes your fancy - a make-up bag, to accessorise with an outfit or just a clutch for a night out. It is quite a roomy bag with enough space for your essentials and for me it is the coral-tinged gold surface that stands out with its raised, three-dimensional design. RRP £16.90

The Desert Dunes Baked Bronzer is one of those 'wow' moment products. The compact is again embellished with a digital design, coral-tinged gold colouring and the KK logo on top. There’s a handy internal mirror which fills the entire lid and the powder itself is so silky soft, you literally only need to lightly swipe your brush across the powder to create your look and it is also enriched with jojoba oil and has a very light vanilla scent. Available in two shades, there is Warm Melange and Sienna Melange, of which I have the latter. RRP £22.90

The two foundations within this range are amazing. Sunshine Cream Foundation for Normal to Dry Skin or there is Sunshine Powder Foundation for normal to combination skin and both have SPF20. I have the cream foundation in shade 'Light' and again this is everything you need in a compact. It looks beautiful, it holds a mirror and a make up sponge. The formula is enriched with grape seed and cork oak extracts and literally glides onto the skin giving pretty impressive coverage, it is lightweight and manages to help hide the shine. RRP £15.90

Desert Dunes Baked Blush is an absolute thing of beauty. Once again the compact matches the rest of the collection and features a handy mirror and is very light to hold. The baked blush inside is is enriched with jojoba oil and vitamin E and is available in three different shades. I have Lust Coral and like the baked bronzer, the texture is light and silky and is a case of a little going a long way as it glides onto the skin. RRP £16.90

Endless Eye Volume Effect Mascara uses a formula whose ingredients instantly create a thick sheath that envelops, adds volume and helps to protect the lashes from base to tip. The texture is thick and creamy and it doesn't clump when applied. The Wand consists of a mixture of different fibers and colours the lashes in a brilliant, jet black, the only shade available, and the brush’s fine point even reaches your shortest side lashes. RRP £12.90

In The Shade Eyeshadow and Kajal is a double-ended eye-shadow kajal pencil with is said to give both intense colour and extreme hold. Available in six different shades, I am lucky enough to have two of those - Dark Brown and Gold plus Emerald and Petrol Green. 

If you like a formula which doesn't budge once it is applied, then these are well worth looking into buying because even swatching them, proves hard to remove. RRP £9.90

The lipsticks within this range are the products which caught my attention and I am a huge fan of Kiko lipsticks. The Mirage Lip Stylo is just stunning and I love everything about it from the hourglass shaped casing, the magnetic closure and the colour pay off is superb. There are eight shades to choose from within the collection and I have both Traveller Raspberry and Bohemian Sienna. RRP £9.90

Free Spirit Lips and Cheeks is a product which is not only versatile and multipurpose, but one which is perfect for on the go and has six different shades. The formula is creamy enough that it glides onto the lips, or cheeks and is something which is buildable so you can have as much or as little colour as you are comfortable with. This crayon also comes with a sharpener which is really handy to have. RR £9.90

Heatwave Lip Oil is in keeping with the current trend, I am sure by now most people will have bought, seen, heard about or used a lip oil.  I am a big fan of them and Kiko now have their own nourishing, coloured lip oil with a coconut, vanilla and grapefruit scent that smoothly coats the lips and leaves a glossy but not tacky or sticky finish. The formula is enriched with jojoba oil, shea butter, wild mango butter and vitamin E. They glide onto the lips and work well to moisturise the lips. RRP £10.90

The final item that I have from the collection is the Wanderlust Face Brush. Designed to be the perfect sized for travelling, this Kabuki face brush is ideal for applying and blending all kinds of baked and pressed powders. The fluffy, dense synthetic bristles ensure the powder is dusted on evenly, smoothly and without blotches. RRP £16.90

How beautiful is this collection? Everything about it screams luxury and yet it is priced so competitively you would be hard pushed to just purchase one item from the collection, which is much more vast than this.

  1. I find the packaging to be the only really innovative part of this collection, since a lot are re-branded products from old collections (I've been using Kiko products for around 6 years now I think)..the blushes and bronzers are the bits that caught my attention the most
