Hello everyone! 🙂 Finally winter is here, in full force and freezing temperatures. In this weather your skin can become dry, sensitive and dull as soon as you go outside. So, you want your natural, healthy and glowing look back? A little bit of blush or bronzer on your cheeks will do the trick.Today we are going to talk about my favorite blush and contouring kit!
Let’s start with my favorite contouring kit:
•Kiko – Daring Game Collection – Golden Game Sculpting Bronzer n. 01 Radiant Honey:
This product, a limited edition from the 2014 A/W Daring Game collection, has an amazing packaging, but I can honestly say that it is more than a pretty package, as it performs just as well as it looks! It contains two contouring shades and one highlighter in the same beautifully embroidered compact with a mirror.
The two contouring shades match perfectly, if you are going to use them together, and they can give you a really beautiful and natural “sun kissed” tone. Moreover, this powder medium-bronze contouring kit is awesome especially for those who struggle to find a natural-looking shade for their skin tone, because this is not the least bit muddy or orange looking. I never use too much on my face, because I have a fair/light skin tone, but this product has a very good pigmentation and it will last all day without melting in a strange “foundation beard“… if you know what I mean. 😉
The powder highlighting side of this duo is equally amazing as it illuminates your skin with a light golden sheen of ultra-fine shimmer. I don’t use the highlighter powder very often, because I have oily/combo skin and unfortunately my face can become dewy during the day! (To prevent that I use my favorite powder, you can find the review here.)
The Golden Game Sculpting Bronzer is fragrance-free, and both the bronzer and highlighter have a soft pressed powder texture that applies and blends easily on every skin type.
So, this is a wonderful and affordable option if you want to give your skin complexion a soft candlelit glow and subtle dimension!
And last, but not least, the blush from the same collection:
•Kiko – Daring Game Collection – Top Pairs Blush n. 02 Raspberry Rose and Peach:
Another beautiful package that contains a duo of color-coordinated shades (one pink and one peach).
I use the pinkish one during the autumn/winter season to add a little bit of color on my cheeks, and the peach one in the spring/summer when I have a little bit of tan! 🙂
These blush are richly pigmented and blend easily on your skin—their degree of pigment means a little goes a long way (you really don’t need to re-touch the product multiple times a day with your brush or you’ll end up like a 1800’s doll)! 😉
Also, you will see that both shades work well on their own or mixed to create a great custom color.
The Top Pairs Blush blends really well on every skin type, provides an intensely pigmented and customizable coverage color and the wear time is excellent.
I’ve always loved Kiko special collections/limited editions range because, in my opinion, these products are excellent and they are super affordable especially during the sale season. I can honestly say that, if you want to try something from this brand for the first time, it’s better if you go for the special collections instead of the regular one!
I know that the Daring Game Collection is pretty old and not easy to find, but I can say that the new Kiko All Stars Face Palette, it’s good as well and a brand new collection… you can find it here.
