But first, I'm thrilled to tell you that Kiko has finally opened an online store for US customers! Since Kiko Cosmetics stores in the US are only on the East Coast (for now), this is great news for the rest of us who have been wanting to try some things!
Thanks so much to reader @missjae1908 on Instagram for this tip:
Kiko Cosmetics US online store now open
Everyday free shipping on orders $35+
Along with the debut of the US online store, Kiko is currently offering 50% off everything on this page, plus you will receive a free gift box (to be clear, this is empty--it's a gift box + tissue) with any order. Since I'm a box fanatic, I can appreciate this freebie! Also, you get everyday free shipping on orders $35+, no code required.

Kiko Cosmetics is an affordable Italian cosmetics company that debuted in 1997. They have retail locations in eight countries across Europe, and recently expanded to the US (all of their stores are on the East Coast--you can view a store locator HERE). I'm guessing that they will expand beyond the East Coast eventually, but the great news for the rest of us is that we can now purchase Kiko products online.
You may have recently seen some buzz about Kiko on social media, blogs, etc., and I'm guessing this has a lot to do with their new retail locations on the East Coast. I have personally seen lots of in-store pics and product pics on my Instagram feed as of late, so I'm thrilled that I can finally order some things and see what all this buzz is about it.
Kiko sells their own house-brand cosmetics, nail color, skincare, beauty tools, and brushes (and they have LOTS to choose from). I've heard from some of you who have compared their products to Sephora's house brand, and also to brands like MAC, since they have an emphasis on bold colors. Their prices are affordable (even better with the current 50% off sale) but I do want to mention that I've heard from some readers who find some of their products can be hit-or-miss. This doesn't surprise me though, since their product line is so extensive--not everything can be fabulous, and it may take a while for us to sort out the "must-haves" from the "skips."
And that's where YOU come in! If you already own some Kiko Cosmetics, I would absolutely love if you would comment below and share your opinions with us! What do you consider a must-have? What would you skip?
I've currently got my eye on their Summer 2015 Miami Beach Babe Collection Deco Delight Lipsticks (polka dots!) which are now on sale for $4.90 each. Pixiwoo did a review with swatches HERE, if you'd like to see them.
Thanks again, @missjae1908, for the great tip about the new website!
