Kiko Haul: New Products and Packaging!Monday, April 18, 2016
Products from Kiko Cosmetics*
Now we're in spring I've been updating my makeup bag, and have been on the lookout for my spring staple products. I've tried a few products from Kiko now (many of which have ended up becoming all time favourites!) however I'd never actually tried anything from their regular cosmetics lines and had previously always fallen for limited edition collections. However their current generation of products have been given a modern makeover with gorgeous gunmetal packaging, and I was all for finding out if they were as good right across the range. Here's what I thought!
Weightless Perfection Wet and Dry Powder Foundation: £13.90
I was so excited to get my hands on this, I'm almost finished my Kiko Modern Tribes powder foundation from last summer and since it was limited edition I had no idea how I'd get it again or if Kiko would release a similar product. While it isn't identical (I find it has a slightly lighter coverage, although it is buildable) however it's a great replacement and a gorgeous product. I know this will be especially good for over the summer, perfect for when you want a bit of mattifying and coverage without putting anything too heavy on the skin- it even contains SPF 30 too which is an added bonus. This comes in a massive range of colours from very light to very dark as well as a mixture of cool and warm shades so no matter what your skin tone you're bound to find the perfect match here.
Shade Fusion Trio Blush: £10.90
The pigment of both of these is amazing, you really do just need a tiny dab. Pink blush is never the most flattering on me but actually both of these shades look nice on and are really wearable providing you don't apply too much. I think I can detect a slight sheen but the overall finish is pretty matte, so you get a healthy and natural looking flush without looking like a glitter ball. The formula is so soft and blends beautifully into the skin, they're enriched with vitamin E and argan oil making them gentle and beneficial for the skin. Because they're trios you can create lighter or darker shades, or mix them together on the brush. I'm amazed that these only cost a tenner as both the packaging and the product itself feels much higher end.
Invisible Lip Liner: £5.90 // Lip Primer: £8.90
This is such a great little duo, they create the perfect base for lipstick and because they're 'invisible' they go with any shade. They are especially handy to prep the lips with when you've got a darker lipstick that likes to smudge or bleed from the lip line. The primer creates a base for the product to grab onto and last longer, and it also neutralises the lip colour (a bit like a concealer) so the lipstick applies more true to colour.
