When the invite for attending the KIKO Milano Aberdeen store launch landed in my inbox, my heart raced with excitement. KIKO Milano is a brand that I only discovered for myself two years ago whilst on a trip to Florence. I only purchased a few of their items at the time, but I fell in love with the formula for one of their mascaras - so that bad boy was added to my basket straight away.
When I arrived at the store, there was already a small crowd of customers itching to get in but I was lucky enough to gain access straight away with a few other bloggers for our event. To begin with there was a wee talk on the company and what they have managed to achieve in just a couple of years. At the end of 2015 there was 15 stores in the UK and this Aberdeen store was the 47th in the UK - hopefully I remembered those numbers correctly.
After the introduction to KIKO Milano, we were offered some breakfast and the services of the make up artists. When it comes to make up, I love to try new products, so I asked the make up artists what their favourite products were and I asked them to apply it on me so I can see for myself. Every product that they used, I added to my basket.
The store is stunning. Bright and white with bursts of colour everywhere. Colour is something that KIKO loves to play with. Bold colour and a statement style. They have a great selection of products in store and their price ranges are fantastic. They carry a "Smart" range in store which carries eyeshadows for as little as £2.50 for those who want to start playing with make up, and they have their "Pro" range for those who feel a little more confident.

When it comes to doing something special, KIKO know how to do it right. A lot of brands will release a new collection one or twice a year but KIKO Milano launch a new collection every month. They never stop creating something new and exciting for their customers. Here is a look at some of the products created for this Season. I just love the red and gold packaging. So bold.
Have you shopped at KIKO Milano before? If so, what do you love?
