The Spain Haul: Kiko, Sephora & Wet n Wild

Did you miss me?  Did ya?!  In case you didn't know, I've been in the Costa del Sol in Spain for two weeks in July having some much needed R&R.  Apart from the small matter of getting married in Gibraltar in between sunning myself liberally (a post on the wedding will be coming as soon as I get all my photos) I of course did a bit of beauty shopping too.

I was delighted in the first couple of days in Fuengirola to find a Kiko Makeup store, and shortly thereafter found some other great beauty shopping too, namely Sephora and a beauty only TK Maxx type shop called Primor.  Read on to find out what I got (where items are available to purchase or for delivery to the UK I will link them)...

Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick in Bewitch Me and The Red, Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Colour in Coraline
Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick in Bewitch Me (here) - Seriously, how glorious is this deep purple?  It's actually far more purple than it looks in this bright sunny photo, it's definitely not one for the faint of heart but I'll be rocking this a lot I'm certain.  The formula of these lipsticks is ridiculously creamy, and incredibly pigmented making them so easy to wear.
Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick in The Red (here) - This is one of those classic bright reds, one I could imagine a screen siren like Marilyn Monroe et al wearing.  Oddly I don't have a colour too much like this in my rather extensive lipstick collection so it was a no brainer to grab it.
Wet 'n' Wild Mega Last Lip Colour in Cora-line (here) - I do love a good coral at this time of year.  To me this one leans more towards the red/pink end of coral, and again I don't have anything too much like it in my current collection of lipsticks.

Sephora Jumbo Liner 12HR Wear Waterproof in 04 Taupe, Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette
Sephora Jumbo Liner 12HR Wear Waterproof in 04 Taupe (here) - I don't know what it is about anything, bronze or taupe-y but if I see it I'll buy it, and this jumbo eye pencil is a case in a point.  Did I need it?  No.  Did I lust after it the moment I saw it?  Absolutely!
Wet 'n' Wild Comfort Zone Palette (here - although I think this is way too expensive) - I remember these palettes from Wet 'n' Wild being a huge deal on blogs a few years ago, so obviously I had to try one when I saw it.  And just look at those lovely neutral shades, so easy to wear on a daily basis.

Kiko Rock Attraction Blush in 05 Sound Coral, Kiko Velvet Stick Blusher in 01 Charming Peach, Kiko Loud Night Bronzer in 02 Silky Mat Tan, Kiko Glow Lips & Cheeks in 102 Wave Hibiscus
Kiko Rock Attraction Blush in 05 Sound Coral - although this blusher is a great neutral colour it's got a good hit of shimmer in there so I'd probably only wear it in the summer, I don't mind too much though as this blusher, like each of the ones I got from Kiko was less than 5 Euros.
Kiko Velvet Stick Blusher in 01 Charming Peach - Now I wouldn't normally look at this blush as it's a rather scary shade of orange, but I saw a girl with similar colouring to me swatch it in the Kiko store and it looked beautiful, really sheer and subtle, perfect for the warmer months!
Kiko Loud Night Bronzer in 02 Silky Mat Tan - I didn't expect to find a bronzer at such a bargain price, that I really enjoy using.  The pink splashes you can see running across it are actually shimmery colour so the bronzer can be used one of two ways, either swirling it all together or just picking out the bronzer from inbetween the pink.  Either way I love it!
Kiko Glow Lips & Cheeks in 102 Wave Hibiscus - Considering the price I am so impressed with the creamy, non-sticky formula of this multi-tasking product.  The shade I chose is a lovely pink, that just makes you look that little bit fresher, again it's perfect for a summery/light makeup look.

That's it for my haul of beauty products from Spain.  What have you been buying recently?  Let me know or leave me links in the comments below.

  2. OH MY GIDDY AUNT - How pretty is that first lipstick (Bewitch Me)? I need this in my life. I can always trust you to make me want more dark berry toned lippies. Looks like you got some amazing goodies and I am very jealous.

    Also congrats again my lovely and I cannot wait to see some snaps.
