Who doesn’t love a Kiko collection? Just when you think Kiko have released all the prettiness possible, we have Generation Next, a modern, fun and extremely pretty line of the usual feminine and mostly wearable shades.
The full collection consists of a new CC Cream Cushion Foundation – the next thing big thing in foundation which provides the benefits of a liquid foundation in the convenience of a cushion-soaked compact – available in six shades, £15.90 each, Masterpiece Bronzer for £14.90, Mosaic Blush in four shades, also £14.90, Mosaic Highlighter, again £14.90. For the skin there’s a Crystal Fusion Super Moisture Face Serum designed to brighten and hydrate for £15.90.
Eyes have two new arrivals; the Cool Touch Eyeshadow in in 8 shades for £8.90 a go and the Crystal Eyeliners in six shades for £6.90 a go. Two new arrivals for lips too; the Frosted Look Lipstick in six shades for £7.50 a pop and the Glassy Lipgloss in six shades for £7.90. Lastly there’s a Face Brush designed to work with the bronzers, blushers and highlighters for £15.90. Phew! Quite a collection.
I’ve been playing with a few bits and bobs and my favourites are the Cool Touch Eyeshadow (wearing in the picture) which I had in the shade Ingenious Taupe – a very cool, grey-leaning taupe – the Glassy Lipgloss (wearing in the picture) in shade 05 – a coral pink with gentle shimmer – and the Mosaic Blush (wearing in the picture) in Inspiration Rose Coral, the latter of which I didn’t expect to like, as even though it’s beautiful to look at, I thought it’d be too orangey red for me. However, as you can see in the swatches, it’s a lovely, gentle, pinky peach.
The Crystal Eyeliners are also gorgeous and highly pigmented with some great shades available. The two shades I have are 02 and 03 which are both very wearable nudes with a little bit of shimmer. I haven’t tried them on my inner eye yet, but I would say tread carefully as obviously the shimmer might prove a little uncomfortable so close to your eyeball! The strangely named Frosted Look Lipstick provides serious colour payoff and I really like the lipstick style tip. The colour I have is 03, a punchy coral. It’s a lovely collection with great packaging – so the usual from Kiko then! I’m not too sure when it launches as it doesn’t seem to be online yet, but it will be very soon.
That eyeshadow is very pretty!
It’s lovely isn’t it? I’m always really digging the pencils xx
