Here’s my haul from my shopping trip in Milan, where I got a few lipsticks from Burberry and grabbed a few products to try from Kiko Milano.
For me, when I splurge on makeup, it’s always lipstick (and most often from Burberry). I’ve checked out a few of the other products Burberry sells (like this one) but I’ve never thought they were worth the money. I’m willing to pay $30 for one lipstick, but I would never consider paying $62 for this eyeshadow palate or $68 for this highlight.
Burberry is the most high-end brand I will ever buy (I discussed how I felt about Tom Ford here) and I just think brands like Dior and Chanel sell makeup that is so overpriced, you reach a point where you’re paying for packaging and only packaging.
Meanwhile, Kiko Milano is a new brand based in Milan with drugstore like prices. Their products are pretty cost friendly, but I’ve never tried any of the products so I can’t speak for the quality. However, they ship all over Europe and to the US which is great!
Let’s check it out!
