My sister Lisa (@ladolcelisa) has just returned from a 3 month trip where she was visiting her boyfriend in Rome, Italy. Being the amazing sister that she is, she really spoiled me with Italian makeup goodies! She brought me back a few items from the stores “KIKO: Make Up Milano” & “Wjcon”. They are two very popular makeup stores from Italy. I know that KIKO is actually branching out – you can find it throughout Europe and I also heard that they have opened up one store in New Jersey which is cool! Here’s some photos and swatches of everything she bought me ❤
KIKO “Infinity” Eye Shadow
(She bought me three but bought a small 3 pan palette to put them in – you can buy them individually)
These shadows are beautifully pigmented and sooo buttery. I love them! They retail for EUR 4,90
Wjcon Baked Eyeshadow #205
Totally in love with this baked highlighter. Very pigmented and would also make a lovely highlighter I’m sure! It is EUR 5,90.
Wjcon “Soft Mousse Eyeshadow”
These “Soft Mousse Eyeshadow’s” by Wjcon are SO gorgeous. They are exactly that – a mousse consistency but it will dry completely waterproof on your lids. I seriously cannot wait to experiment with these shadows. Just look at the pigmentation! They retail for EUR 6,90.
Wjcon “Pulpy Mat Lip” #6
This color is such a gorgeous bubble gum pink shade and it is SO pigmented! I am not sure how much it cost.. but I do believe it is a limited edition item so that sucks! But I seriously love it ❤
Now I saved the best for last… My Whisper of Gilt dupe!
KIKO: Water Eyeshadow #208
(One picture won’t do it justice. Look at that beauty! I actually made my sister buy me two of them. This was the only makeup item I knew about and told her to get me – everything else she surprised me with!)
Here are comparison swatches of the KIKO #208 one, along with the two LIMITED EDITION and highly sought after M.A.C “Whisper of Gilt” & Estee Lauder “Heatwave” highlighters. The KIKO one is truly IDENTICAL to Whisper of Gilt & Heatwave. If anything Heatwave is slightly more white gold than the MAC & KIKO ones. Their textures and everything are identical. The KIKO one retails for EUR 8,90. I don’t believe you can buy these products online but you may luck out on Ebay or Amazon. If you live in Europe it should not be a problem finding these products as well as if you live in New Jersey. Hope you guys liked this post & check out my amazing sister’s instagram as she posts the most gorgeous photos (@ladolcelisa) ❤
