KIKO Milano, the uber popular Italian makeup brand opened their very first store in Dubai last week. The brand which was founded in 1997, features an extensive range of high quality makeup and skincare products which that rival some of the high end brands.
The store, located in Dubai’s Deira City Centre Mall was packed to the rafters when I went there! The store was quite large and the range of products was immense. There were quite a few products that I wanted to check out (that were recommended by my favourite bloggers) I did find some of them but I was a little disappointed that they didn’t have some of the products like the cushion foundation and the Metallic Shine Eyes (which has some amazing reviews online).
I had a really hard time checking out all the product ranges because of the crowd but they had every type of products imaginable from skincare, foundations to lipsticks, eyeshadow and contouring /highlighting products. There was also a range of limited edition range with beautiful gold packaging but I couldn’t try them out except for a lovely lip oil. And the best thing was that all of them seemed to priced very reasonably which is very rare in Dubai as most drugstore products are marked up quite high compared to their original prices. The most expensive item I saw was the Second Skin Foundation which was priced around AED120.
I like to shop for makeup at a leisurely pace so all that crowd made my mind go a little blank but I did managed to pick up two products – a pencil lip gloss (no 12 a pretty brown hued nude) and a Long Lasting Stick eyeshadow (no 38 a shimmery mink).
I love both products (specially the eye shadow stick) and I am definitely going back to the store. I am just praying it won’t be crowded 🙂
