Kiko’s latest limited edition collection has just launched, and as ever, it’s just to die for! The Summer Trend collection is simply beautiful, and in my opinion it’s one of the best limited edition collections from Kiko as yet…
The Summer Trend collection is inspired by the passion for travel – it’s about finding your inner free-spirit and embracing adventure. The products focus on a flawless, sun kissed complexion, with well-defined eyeliner, brightly coloured eyeshadow and volume-boosting mascara. Lips are accentuated by the shiny, bold lipsticks and hydrated with glossy lip oils. This collection also includes two EDT fragrances, as well as brushes and makeup bag.
The packaging created for this collection really is everything. Designed by Ross Lovegrove, the product casings are finished in a warm metallic gold with a delicate, textured pattern. This makes the products feel wonderfully luxurious, with small additions such as the magnetic closure on the lipsticks adding that special touch.
Let’s start with the Desert Dunes Trio Baked Blush in 01 Lust Coral (£16.90) – this is a gorgeous and generously sized baked blusher combining three different shades for a customised effect. The baked formula is enriched with jojoba oil and vitamin E, and lightly scented with vanilla. 01 Lust Coral is a beautiful trio of coral shades, giving and intense yet sheeny flush colour on application, which can easily be built up and intensified, or worn with a light hand for a sheer look.
The Desert Dunes Baked Bronzer in 210 Sienna Melange (£22.90) is a wonderfully large bronzer, comprising of two different shades mixed together in a single product to give the face a natural, tanned look. Again, the formula is enriched with jojoba oil and vitamin E with a vanilla scent. 210 Sienna Melange is the darker shade of the two available (and too dark for me unfortunately) but it gives a lovely sheen and sight sparkle when applied. This would be perfect for those with mid to dark skin tones.
Next is the Mirage Lip Stylo in 09 (£13.90) – this is a beautifully bold pink shade with a high shine finish. Kiko has designed this lipstick to offer the benefits of three products in one – the colour payoff of a lipstick, the shine of a gloss and the comfort of a balm – and I think they’ve succeeded really well! The formula is creamy and comfortable on the lips, and the finish is glossy and intense. This is going straight in my makeup bag.
The In the Shade Kalaj & Eyeshadow in 06 Black & Shell (£9.90) – this is the first of two In the Shade Kajal & Eyeshadows I have, one end of this one is a deep black Kajal and the other a light nude skin tone pink eyeshadow pencil. The kajal pencil is perfect more smudged looks rather than precise lines, just because it’s chunky in size. The liner is a gorgeous deep black, I’ve worn this applied quickly and smudged out for a smokey look.
And the In the Shade Kalaj & Eyeshadow in 03 Turquoise & Pearly Brown (£9.90) – I love the shimmery turquoise shade here, it’s so pretty and summery! It also works really well with the brown eyeshadow too, which has a hint of gold sparkle to it. It’s worth mentioning that these pencils also have great staying powder – I’ve worn each of them for a day without the product moving at all.
And lastly the Out of Bounds Eyeliner Pen (£8.90) – I’m a big fan of ‘felt tip’ style eyeliner pens for precision eyeliner application rather than liquid liners. The Out of Bounds Pen is just perfect – I can’t even tell you how much I love this! The product formula is an intense, jet black, with a flexible pointed tip that makes application as easy as it it possibly could be. The product itself has a thin, liquid formula much like an actual felt writing pen, it also dries quickly and lasts all day – perfect!
Well, what a stunning collection! Remember these are all limited edition – so once they’re gone, they’re gone. You can pick them up now from Kiko stores and Kiko.com – go treat yourself!
