Less is Better with Kiko Cosmetics.



I ruddy love Kiko Cosmetics. My blog is home to many a review of this brand and the past collections it has brought out. One of my most popular posts ever is this post here, back when I first started blogging – or even knew how to take a professional photograph. This year, Kiko is celebrating an amazing TWENTY YEARS OF BEAUTY. Their first ever store opened back in 1997, in Fiorucci. Now they have over 1,000 stores in 20 countries – a third of which are based in Italy. I first discovered the brand whilst living in Mallorca, over four years ago, and I have used them religiously ever since. One of my favourite ever foundations is this one here and I carry so many of their products in my professional make-up kit. If you have never tried this brand before, now could be your chance.

But first….

Kiko decided to team up with the one and only Vogue Italia, to celebrate this important occasion and they have selected seven international designers to create seven limited edition capsule collections. The first one of which, is this one: Less is Better.Β 

I am just going to throw this out there, this possibly could be my favourite EVER collection from Kiko. It is right up my street, channeling the “no make-up” make-up trend which accentuates our natural beauty. You all know that I am not one to wear loads of make-up, I prefer my skin to look real. Created in partnership with SuperDuper Handmade Hats, this collection helps you to create a sophisticated, ethereal beauty look.

So what can you get? It is made up of highlighters, a beautiful eyeshadow palette, cream blushers, matte lipsticks, ultimately a collection that focuses on your eyes and lips, and clean skin. There is a konjac sponge in this range, which I found quite odd hence why I have not even photographed it, and also a cool, clear bag to store your makeup in. Full of neutral, nude colours, it really is a stunning collection.


Where do I even start? The cream blushers come in a beautiful glass jar, that will look amazing sat on anyones dressing table. They give your skin a natural flush and the texture is lightweight, and easy to blend. The eyeshadow palette is immensely wearable, and one that will no doubt be a match for my Rosie Eyeshadow palette which I currently use daily. You can create a really subtle smokey eye or wear a wash of nude colour to keep your look fresh. The matte lipsticks are long lasting and I would wear at least 3 of the four shades available – the really nude shade is not my cup of tea, but a great option for those who do love a seriously nude lip. The fluid highlighters are my favourite, they are so pretty and so easy to apply and blend. Definitely ones to pick up for Summer. There is a golden shade for darker skin tones and a glorious champagne shade for paler skins. I will be taking both of these to Ibiza this Summer for sure. Then there are the long lasting eyeshadow sticks, available in 3 different shades, a gold, a pink and a copper shade. Again, all of these shades are super pretty and the formula is smudge proof and long lasting.

The best news?
