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 gorgeous blush duo is from last seasons ‘Daring Game’ collection, so unfortunately you won’t be able to order them online anymore, but if you have a store local to you, they may have some in stock (like mine did). 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.
Doesn’t it have the most gorgeous packaging? It’s a pearly white compact, decorated with a pink diamond shape and KIKO’s logo. 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 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.
Have you tried anything from KIKO before? If so, what’s your favourite? Would you like to see more of the items I bought?
