Monday Must Haves: Kiki Cool Citrus Setting Spray

Hello World. How exciting is it that I get to Break Out another Monday Must Have post. Well it is for me anyway.

Lets get into it. Today I’m introducing you to the Kiki Luxury Skincare brand and more specifically the Cool Citrus Setting Spray. This is another item I received in my BSS Beauty Expo swag bag, along with a sample of the Natural Radiance moisturizer & Face Primer ( shout out to Coco for going out of her way to arrange my swag bag & ticket after it sold out).

Description taken from the website:

KiKi’s Make-Up Ready Cool Citrus Setting Spray is a gorgeous, light and silky, citrus enriched product which is sprayed over your make-up in order to set and hold it for longer periods of time. KiKi’s Make-Up Ready Cool Citrus Setting Spray, Step 5 of the Make-Up Ready process, not only locks down your make-up, but spraying on this extra fine mist also gives you a refreshing boost. Don’t let those dry days get you down. The Cool Citrus Setting Spray can also act as a secret weapon to provide instant moisture and hydration. Just whip it out of your handbag, any time, any place, give yourself a quick spritz and immediately find a new, more radiant and moisturised you. This product is free of synthetic fragrance and suitable for both dry and oily skin types. It contains aromatic, natural grapefruit oil to cool and calm the senses.

Let me just say out of the bundle the Cool Citrus Setting Spray is my favorite. To test it I used it before foundation, after foundation, after my make-up was done and spritzed my face once more during a night out. Obsessed much?! I also used it on a brush to intensify my highlight & eye-shadow.

The smell firstly is a biggie for me, because of my sensitive skin & sinus, the citrus tone is not overpowering as I feared.  The Cool Citrus Spray also covers the two p’s. Price & Packaging. It’s reasonably priced , at 245ZAR for 100ml. And then lets not forget about the gorgeous packaging, I can hardly believe this is a local product. Simply put I’m so impressed by this local brand , I will be repurchasing it when I run out.

As always thank you for reading. If you have tried and absolutely love any other Kiki products please let me know.

I kept the mask on  for 45 minutes. 40 minutes into the mask I started massaging the serum into my skin. It is advised to keep sheet masks on for no longer than 15-20 minutes . When I removed the mask my skin felt tight like a tiger, smooth & super velvety. The best was yet to come the next day when a few people commented on how “glowy” my skin looked and this ,let me just add this was without an ounce of make up on. I’m soooo impressed I’m incorporating this into my weekly beauty routine.

These masks are available from Timeless Truth Mask and usually retails for 69 ZAR but is currently on SALE for 49 ZAR.

Monday Must haves: Slays for days Palette

Hello World! Today I’m Breaking Out a “Monday Must have” eye shadow palette post.  I’ve had this palette since it launched but only recently had a chance to sit down & play around with some new looks. I say new looks because it is new for me as I tend to wear the ‘same old same old’ look on my eyes.

The Slays for Days palette from the infamous Swiitch Beauty has 35 matte & shimmer shades. Said to be a dupe for the Morphe 350s eyeshadow palette it’s easy to see why this is a cult favourite.

What I love about this palette besides the colour pay off, is the versatility. I use my palette to contour, highlight & to fill my brows,besides the obvious use.

Using my cost per wear ratio one pan works out to R 10.00  that’s less than 1 USD or 0.75 cents to be exact. Compare that to the nett weight of 56.2g/1.98oz and it screams affordability.

As always thank you for reading beauties.Will you be getting this palette? Also,share your looks with me ,i’m always looking for inspo!xxx
