While staying in Italy and having heard about the Kiko brand, I wanted to try some of their products. I promised myself to be good and not to spend too much on make-up since I had already done some damage in the shops…so I decided to buy a mascara since my current one was showing signs of old age…time for retirement I thought, so I bought a new one.
There were several mascaras to choose from, discounted too, so I opened the testers and let the wands do the talking…I don’t like to use a very large wand since I have quite a small face and I could easily smudge the mascara. I prefer small, thin wands that can elongate and separate the lashes. With this one I saw, I liked, I bought !
So I present you the Kiko 30 Days Extension – Daily Treatment Mascara ! But first something about the brand :
KIKO MILANO was established and founded in 1997 by the Percassi
Group. It is an Italian professional cosmetics brand that features a

Now back to our mascara. It comes in a golden tube with black writing on top. It contains 8 ml/0.27 oz of product.
new miraculous cosmetic with proven efficacy that acts on the natural
development cycle of the lashes bringing them to new length targets.
pro-growth complex acts like an out-and-out concentrated nutritional
supplement containing substances that are quickly assimilated by the
structure of your lashes. Thanks
to a sophisticated “mobile” micro-encapsulation system, the valuable
active ingredients penetrate into the lashes and move along them toward
their roots, where they can undertake their action.
Let’s try with two coats, not too heavily applied.
(Don’t mind my lovely dark circles…I’m still fighting them with concealers, but that’s another review). I love this lashy look, not very over the top but still enhancing the natural beauty.
Boy, was I happy!! I thought I would buy some more to have … the beautiful dream lasted until late at night when I arrived home looking like this :
|sorry about the lighting..the bathroom isn’t the best place to photo|
You see what I mean…the base of the eye is smudged with mascara fallen from the bottom lashes … I was not very happy since I didn’t fancy the raccoon look. I am still liking the mascara but I’ll try to wear it only on the top lashes and use another mascara on the bottom ones…
You can find this mascara at all Kiko shops in Italy and here : http://www.kikocosmetics.ro/make-up/eyes/mascara/30-Days-Extension—Daily-Treatment-Mascara/p-KM0030101000100#zoom
It costs 7.90 euros/ aprox 35 ron.
All in all, Kiko 30 Days Extension – Daily Treatment Mascara is a good mascara for the price, it gives length, definition, it doesn’t clump the lashes. Its only fault is the fact that it can fall under the eye at the end of the day. This is why I give it the B grade. If you don’t apply mascara under the lashes, it can be the perfect mascara for you so give it a go!
