Hello my dear pumpkins!
Before diving into this review, I want to apologize in advance because I won’t be very active on WordPress these coming few days as I have an important exam on Wednesday. Wish me luck guys, it’s so important that I succeed, it’s the GMAT exam, I need it to enter Concordia University in Canada.
Now let’s talk about this foundation that I got from Kiko Milano while I was in Spain.
This foundation came out this fall, it’s a creamy matte foundation and retails for 22$ but I purchased it for 11 euros [it was on sale]. This jar contains 30ml of product, it comes with a miniature pro-foundation brush and comes in 8 shades. I have the shade Warm Beige 15.
I absolutely love the packaging of this foundation, it looks very luxurious and fancy. I love the fact that it’s a glass jar and I love the color of the packaging, navy blue, it matches very well with the color of the foundation that we can see through the matte glass. I think the miniature brush looks very nice as well, it’s very practical for traveling.
“Creamy matte foundation. The soft and ultra-sensory texture ensures a luminous matte finish and silky soft skin. Works into skin easily and perfectly hugs the contours of the face. The product’s lightness on the skin provides a feeling of comfort that envelops the face, leaving it as smooth as silk. Transform the skin in one simple step: skin is radiant, the face glowing and the complexion perfectly refined. Imperfections are visibly minimized. Its perfect medium-full coverage is buildable, for porcelain-like skin that lasts. Suitable for all skin types.”
So this is what Kiko claims the foundation does however when I tried it, I did not like the finish at all: my skin did not look radiant and it didn’t leave my skin as “smooth as silk”. Moreover, I don’t think this foundation is suitable for all skin types because it looked super dry on me and it even looked cackey.
I admit that this foundation offers a medium to full-coverage and it does minimize the appearance of imperfections, I just didn’t like the finish at all.
Moreover, the shade swatches are misleading: warm beige looks SUPER pale on me, it’s supposed to be warm and on the jar it looks quite dark but when I applied it on my face, my skin looked pale and dull. what?
By the way, the foundation brush that comes with it is actually very good!
I was hoping this foundation would work one me but sadly it didn’t [I do think it can work for oily skin]. For 22$, the formula is not amazing but the packaging is on point, you get 30ml of product, which is good and you get a brush that is actually good. Another thing, their shade range is too limiting, I think I can easily find my shade but it’s too limiting for a person who has a really light skin tone or really dark skin tone or a person who has a different undertone than yellow and pink.
I usually love Kiko’s beauty products but this is a major flop for me!
