Kiko Milano Welcome Offer

I’ve heard wonderful things about Kiko Milano, the lipsticks in particular, but I’ve never owned anything from the brand. Someone was kind enough to alert me to a promotion (which is still running). There are so many items on sale. Most of the sale items are over 50% off. They were even offering free shipping with any order when I placed this order on 12/21/15, but there is a $15 minimum now. The code WELCOMEKIKO takes $5 off any order.

I knew I had to order a lipstick, so I can see if they live up to the hype. My foot scrub was almost out, so I decided to order a foot scrub as well. The scrub and lipstick already put me over the discount amount, but the foot socks look moisturizing. They needed me to buy them.

After tax and discount, all three items cost $6.16. I seriously could not have done that well at a drugstore, so I was extremely pleased with this order. Once I try the items in the order, I will edit this.

The hand & foot stone scrub looks nice. My favorite foot scrub to date looks similar, so I hope this works as well. It is 2.53oz, which makes it a little over $1 per ounce with discount (less if I apply some of the $5 off to this).

The intensive foot socks are moisture masks for my feet. I have not used one since last winter. If these were more affordable (in general), I would apply them multiple times every winter. At $2.90 each, I probably should have bought more. That price is very reasonable. These were incredibly moisturizing. My feet were very soft. The added moisture even survived one extra shower.

They have an extensive collection of lipsticks, and I was unsure which one was the one everyone raved about. Turns out it was probably the Intensively Lavish Lipstick. Someone posted on Beautytalk that this is similar to Guerlain Rouge G Lipsticks. Well, that is not the one I ordered, so I will probably need to pick that up at some point to try it myself.

I bought the Luminous Chrome Metallic Lipstick in Violet. While scrolling through the sale lipsticks, this finish caught my eye. There are not a lot of metallic lipsticks in my collection, so the chance I already have a metallic violet lipstick is slim. From swatch alone, I am very impressed with the color and finish of this lipstick.

This lipstick looks and feels incredible on. It does not accentuate lip lines or highlight dry patches. I also find it somewhat moisturizing. If the Intensively Lavish Lipstick is allegedly better than this, I have to try it.

If you’ve ever wanted to try this brand or are already a fan, now is a great time to shop. This was my first order, so I cannot say whether the welcome code would work on existing accounts. You could always open a second account though. I like having multiple accounts on certain brands anyway, because certain accounts get email offers others do not. Having more than account increases your odds of receiving special offers.

    You inspired me to try the moisturizing socks – I hope they work! I also bought yet another eye shadow stick, because I cannot get enough of those.

    I was thinking of trying the socks to ring in the New Year at home tonight. That’s right. I love a “relaxing” party. Once I try them, I will report back. Shadow sticks do not get along with my oily lids. Admittedly, I love the way they look and always hope I will find the perfect formula that will not crease. Maybe I will try these at some point. Thanks for the tip.

  3. Dear, TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT SALE WHILE YOU CAN! Kiko Milano is (at the moment) one of the best kept secrets stateside. Their Luscious Cream and Intensely Lavish Lipsticks are just AMAZING (so much so that I’ve been raiding all the Kiko Milano stores I can get to to grab them)!

    Once people find out how good the stuff is at nearly drugstore prices… believe me, Kiko’s gonna sell out!

    I was going to try the moisturizing socks last night, but I never got around to it. Once I try some of the items I purchased, I will grab some more if I love them. I am really considering grabbing an Intensively Lavish Lipstick before I try anything though. Thanks for the tip.

  5. No problem! Strangely enough, I didn’t see any moisturizing socks in the stores in my city, so I was a little perplexed lol. But seeing as how they only opened 3 stores on the East Coast, Kiko’s still testing out the waters since Sephora’s dominated the scene for some time.

    There is at least one Kiko store in my city (Las Vegas), but I have not been there (yet). I know from most of the stores from any brands I have been in, they tend to carry more makeup than skin and body care inside the stores. There are also a lot of items that are online only.

  7. When I found out they have a store in Las Vegas, I almost bought a plane ticket, show up at my uncle and aunt’s house to spend the night, and somehow make my way to that branch. From what I’ve noticed – West Coast gets the better stuff than East Coast x – x, so I was curious to see how different the Las Vegas one would be from the NYC ones (that and I do miss Las Vegas from a sightseeing point of view. I could go there for just a day and be done lol).

    As for the makeup, yes, that’s very true. I try not to veer too much towards the online-only items because I have to see the product in person or I will never buy it (it’s the whole buyer beware thing. Which was proven right when a tripod that I bought online broke and I bought it blindly).

    If I love the products as I am predicting I will, I can do an article touring the store in the future. It will save you the planet ticket (unless the tour makes you want to see it in person). My husband was just telling me last night (while watching the New York ball drop) that we need to go back to New York. It has been a while since our last trip, so I am always down to return.

    I prefer to buy things I’ve swatched or sampled, too. I do not really return things, so I find less disappointment that way.

  9. Amen to that! I’m not big on buying cosmetics online unless I’ve seen them in a store (that’s probably the only plus of living in NYC – Sephoras everywhere) because I don’t dig returns. There’s at least 2 Kiko Stores here but they are far, far different from the one I visited in Upstate New York. I think Kiko is very specific about the products that their store carries based on the geography and customer demographic. I found me a nail polish that I bought in Upstate New York but was not available in NYC. > . >

    I’ll admit, though: the main thing that I like about the company are the lipsticks, lip pencils, and Water eyeshadows. The individual eyeshadows are eh for my color preference – I’m more of a palette person because I like having more colors available to me than to buy individuals and risk losing one when I’m looking for THAT specific color (my stash is enough to cover my twin-sized bed lol).
