KIKO at the MTV EMA 2010 plus updates

It's official: KIKO Make-up Milano will be at the MTV EMA (European Music Awards) 2010!
For the first time ever, a cosmetic brand will be sponsoring the EMA's, for its cosmopolitan identity that has so much in common with the television network. The two, are in fact, crucial in setting trends, and pushing younger generations to style.

Look out for KIKO at the event, which will air on November, 7th!

Also, to celebrate this sponsorship, KIKO decided to give the opportunity to all subscribers of their site to win a weekend for 2 people in Madrid to see the show (including accomodation in a 5 stars hotel, free pass to see the show, and for the after-party!) - This contest, which has started on Aug, 1st will end on Nov, 16th, and the winners will be randomly selected each week.
Not only that, but KIKO is also giving away 5 "50€ gift cards" every day, randomly selecting customer who spend at least 20€ on the site! (gift cards can be either use online or in all stores around Italy).

Now for updates, after the launch of the Luxurious Lashes mascara, which I cannot wait to try out (seen so many great pics of its effects), KIKO has recently launched their foundation brushes, brush cleanser, and new lipgloss.

The Foundation Brushes include the Brush Face 105, which is one of those flat foundation brushes, made of synthetic bristles, and the Brush Face 106, that is a duo-fiber brush which I usually really love for blending my liquid foundation. THis last brush can also be used with powders, as we all know by now. I am really looking forward to try this brush, hoping that it won't shed a lot (most duo-fiber's do).
The foundation brushes retail for €12,90.
Along with these brushes, KIKO has also launched a Brush Cleanser, one of the spritz ones that you can use to clean your brushes instantly. I am particularly interested in this, because no other Italian brand has this kind of product. Brush cleansers are really hard to find here, unless you have a Sephora store near you (NOT MY CASE!). The cleanser retails for € 5,90 which I think it's a very good price.

No, it's not over yet: the brand has also launched a new collection of lipglosses called Extra Volume Lipgloss, which are supposed to volumize your lips, and also moisturize them.
The claim is that the moisturizing effect will reduce the appearence of dry lips even in mature lips, and level them out.
There are 14 shades to choose from, and some of them look amazing. They have a nice video on their site, which I suggest you watch: http://www.kikocosmetics.com/IT/negozio/addon/videoproiettore.html?ID=Extra_volume_lipgloss

I really really look forward to try them out!

Do these products appeal to you? What do you think? Are you going to grab some things from these lines, or have you already grabbed something?
Please, let me know :)

  1. I just discovered this brand while in Spain, and immediately fell in love with it.

    I always view their site in english and I see that their online store is only visible if I choose to view it in Italian. It seems like they don't even ship elsewhere, do they? Because when I want to registrate I see no other country than Italy. It would be great if they shipped to other countries as well!

  2. Non so...dopo le passate esperienze con i pennelli non so se mi fiderei... però di sicuro vorrei provare il cleanser, ha un prezzo piuttosto ridicolo se comparato ai suoi compari di altre marche (anche quello di sephora costa il doppio)... uhm uhm
