Hey dolls; how are you all doing? I hope you are all good and having a lovely April so far. I have been so busy because am working on a project and I will be done by the end of this month so I can get back to posting a lot more regularly as I have SOOO much to share with you.
Today I am reviewing the Kiko foundation sticks I talked about in this post; sorry about the Iphone pics but I am struggling with my camera lol *you guys know how technically challenged I am*
So I decided to try out the Kiko Full Protection foundation sticks; I bought 3 colours (12, 13 and 16) and they were about £3-4 each which was really affordable. I used all 3 for this look;
I used 13 as a base for my whole face; 12 for under my eyes as a concealer and 16 to contour.
So I went ahead and primed as usual with Smashbox Photofinish in Light and then applied the sticks directly to my face and then used my fingers to blend it it. I also used the beauty blender to blend it in even better to give a flawless finish. I then added my chosen blush and then finished it off with my chosen powder; Mac mineralise Skinfinish in Dark deep.
It felt a bit weird using a foundation stick as I am used to liquid foundation and I felt it was a very sheer foundation so I had to keep adding some more to get the coverage I wanted.
It is a 2 in 1 formula; the inner circle gives has an illuminating formula so it gives you a glow and the outer circle is a creamy texture that allows super easy blending.
Looking at the pictures I can see that it really did give me an amazing glow and it looks like a natural glow not an unhealthyFRIEDfish kinda glow lol
So the PROS;
- it applied really easily
- blended super easy
- gave an amazing glow
- it has an SPF 15 so you are protected
- I felt like the colour was a bit lighter than my face and I felt a bit washed out
- The coverage was very sheer and I had to keep applying
My duck face says heeeey!!
So overall; this is a perfect product if you want just a sheer coverage and an amazing glow.
I think I might give it another go, maybe just add it to my everyday routine so maybe add a stick to my current routine and not just use all the sticks on my face at the same time.
I also wore the Kiko mauvey pink lipstick hauled as well; it has a super satin formula so it goes on really creamy and it looks like a very natural everyday colour; it gives me that my-lips-but-better look.
So if anything Kiko is a great brand with lovely affordable products so you can afford to try their products and decide what you like best; I think their lip products are so far my favourite and the concealer stick is also part of my everyday foundation routine; I bought one in Italy and picked another up when I run out.
Have you tried any of these products mentioned? (p.s. these sticks are no longer been sold on Kiko but am sure you can find em online or try their other foundations; they have a new Matte Mouuse foundation that I am eyeing at the moment)
Have you tried any Kiko products?
