Review & Swatches: Kiko Top Pairs Blush

KIKO are a brand that have only popped up on my radar in the last year or so, but one that I have fallen in love with pretty quickly. My favourite lipstick ever (post here) is made by them, and every product I’ve tried, I’ve loved. So, when I saw that they had opened up a new store within the shopping centre where I live, I headed down there, swatching away to my hearts content, and ended up leaving with a bag full of goodies. One of my favourite items that I picked up was KIKO’s Top Pairs Duo Blushes in the shades ‘02 Raspberry Rose & Peach’

This was actually on sale, so I picked it up for around £6, but it originally RRP’d for £14.50. I would have paid full price for this as I really do think it’s amazing.

Inside there is gold detailing, and the diamond is also patterned on the blushes, which gives a lovely touch. The compact feels really well made, fairly heavy and has a nice clasp on it so it won’t open in your bag. Each blush contains 6g of product, which is the same size as a Mac blush, so since you’re getting two, it makes it even better value for money.

kiko top fairs blush palette review 02 raspberry rose peach swatches blogKIKO offered two different shades of this blush palette but I only picked up ‘02 Raspberry Rose & Peach’. Raspberry rose is a matte hot pink shade, and Peach is true to it’s name, being a lovely satin peachy colour. Both shades are so gorgeous and really pigmented in person. They blend so easily, making application a dream. I think both of these shades would be suited to most skintones, and they’re buildable so you could just use a light hand if you are fair skinned.

    i have not tried this brand yet but it’s so pretty!

  • I love Kiko they are such a great affordable brand, with so many beauty gems. I remember eyeing up this beauty a few months back and then stopping myself as I’ve got more blushes than I can count but there’s no denying how gorgeous the shades are x

  • I really need to place my order for Kiko, they are getting rave reviews all over the beauty world.

    • You definitely should if you get the chance! They’re a great brand x

  • I really like Kiko too. I have discovered this brand last year or so and love the great quality, nice packaging and affordable price. My favourite products are the precision eyebrows pencil in 04 and their stick eyeshadows. I need to restock on blushes so I will definitely check this one out. It’s gorgeous. x

    Alexandra | Glam O’Clock

    • I haven’t tried any of their eyebrow pencils, or their eyeshadow sticks but I’ve heard such great things about them both! I will definitely need to have a look next time I’m in store. Thanks for reading! x

    I absolutely LOVE the look of that blush! I have only ever once been in a Kiko store when I was in Italy and as I stay in South Africa we don’t get it here at all 🙁 I was so lame and only bought a few items but if this had been around I so would have bought it. Raspberry Rose is GORGEOUS!!
    PS: I love that you have an entire ‘Hauls’ section on your blog 😀



    • It’s so gorgeous isn’t it! That’s such a shame that you don’t get KIKO where you live – hopefully they’ll branch out soon! Raspberry Rose is my favourite shade out of the two as well. Thanks for reading x

  • Those shades are so beautiful ad I just love the packaging!

    • They are aren’t they! I’m a big fan of their packaging it’s always gorgeous! x

  • I love blushers that blend easily! These sounds lovely, my favourite thing from Kiko is their eyeshadow sticks 🙂

    Rebecca Coco

    • I haven’t actually tried any of their eyeshadow sticks! But I definitely will next time I go in store – thanks for the recommendation x

  • I picked up a few things when I was last in the UK, and I’ve loved everything so far! Really quality products. I don’t really like visiting their stores though – they’re always so busy! I love the packaging on this, and the shades are both gorgeous!

    • They’ve recently opened up a store near me, which isn’t actually too busy yet, but I suppose when people realise it’s there it will become a lot busier! XX
