KIKO Rebel Romantic Review

Hello! I'm back with another review, and I must admit, I'm really enjoying writing up about products and introducing you guys to what's good on the market! 
As a complete and utter beauty junkie, (and hoarder), I'm like a moth to a flame when it comes to new releases of products, especially when it comes to brands that I'm head over heels for. 

Today's post is going to be chatting about a few new released from the KIKO 'Rebel Romantic' range. I'm not sure if any of you are familiar with KIKO, if you're not, you definitely should be! The quality of the products is the same you'd find in MAC, (I've been told by a former MAC employee myself), yet the price of products you'd find in the drugstore, (in some cases cheaper!). 

First, I'm going to talk about my favourite product of the bunch, and that's the 'Glowing Potion'. Sounds magical, doesn't it? It's a serum, but essentially it's a primer, or at least that's how I use it! Although I have oily skin, I've recently discovered it's my T-zone that's the issue. The rest of my face could certainly use a little extra glow, and this does the trick completely. This is my favourite product I've tried from the range so far, and it also has hyaluronic acid in it, (getting ahead of the game with anti-aging!).

Next up from the range, is the 'Colour Defenition Eyeliner and Kajal'. I got mine in the shade 'Cuddly Marsala', which is unmistakably a brown, but definitely has a slight maroon tinge to it, at least it does on me! This glides on the waterline like a dream, and wearing a soft brown instead of opting for black creates a gentler look. They have 6 shades of these, and for £5.90 a pop, who's complaining?!

This palette is a neutral lovers travelling dream. I personally opt for brighter shades for my lids, but for every single look I do, I definitely use these shades. Whether it be for the crease, transition shades, deepening the outer corners, or highlighting my brow bone, every shade has it's purpose to pull every look together. The shadows themselves are super buttery and pigmented. This quad is in the set 'Harmonious Beige'. 

Apologies for the not so flattering swatches, but my skin tone on my arms never compliments a swatch, haha! PS! They do this palette in four different colour-ways, and let me tell you, I NEED 'Fiery Rose'. It's so beautiful!

The last product I received from the range, is a bronze & highlighter combo in 'Light to Medium'. If you ask me, it looks similar to the Charlotte Tilbury 'Cheek to Chic' blushers, but I haven't tried that, so I couldn't say for sure. I personally struggle a little with products that are mixed together, but these two shades are perfect for me. I'm not someone who likes a heavily bronzed look, and I steer clear from deep, red toned bronzers. The bronze side of this is very subtle as you can see in the swatch below, and the highlight isn't shimmery, so I have no problem blending the two together to create a natural, sun-kissed glow.

I really hope you enjoyed this post, and found it useful! I highly recommend checking KIKO out. They don't have many stores in the UK, but even have a little browse on the website and I guarantee you'll find it irresistible. As far as the Rebel Romantic range goes, I couldn't recommend it enough. The packaging alone is absolutely to die for, and not something you'd expect for the price you're paying! I don't own everything from the range, but I went into the store and left covered in pretty swatches, and a long, long shopping list!

Have you tried anything from the range? Are you a fan of KIKO? Let me know!

  1. Seriously love the packaging of KIKO within this range! Once my debit card is sorted out I'll be ale to try these out for myself! I can see the pricing of these isn't too bad. I recently found out that KIKO and MAC actually use the same formula for their lipsticks, eyeshadows etc. So you are only paying for the name! So I'll definitely be going towards KIKO instead of MAC now!
