Kiko has recently opened its first store in India (Delhi) and I was so excited to take a look at the much raved Italian brand. I have heard so many good things about their makeup that I was ready to spend a fortune. However I didn’t spend much and picked a few of the products that caught my fancy. The moment you enter the store, the display on the right hand side has all the powder makeup products like foundations, bronzers, blush etc. I love applying bronzers and picked Kiko Flawless Fusion Bronzer Powder in shade 05.
Now lets take a moment to appreciate the chic packaging. The bronzer comes in a silver compact which is sleek and sturdy. It isn’t heavy and comes with a mirror. The pan isn’t magnetic and can move if isn’t glued properly, thats what is happening with mine. I thought the mirror is loose but when I looked closely, there was gap around the pan, when I tried to take it out, it was loosely glued to the case, with a duct tape. Well it was disappointing but now I will check if they offer refills , because if they do, it would save me some bucks next time. The cap has a magnetic closer which is obviously cool and saves nails from breaking.
Shade – I picked No 05, which was two shades darker than my complexion. You all know how much I love my The Body Shop Honey Bronzing Powder and the shade is mostly out of stock. So I picked this one to use regularly and TBS one for special occasions. The bronzer is warm toned but not orange. I have a mix of warm and cool toned and believe me warm toned bronzers look natural on medium skin tone. I prefer bronzer over blush for everyday use.
Texture & Formula – Kiko Flawless Fusion Bronzer Powder has smooth texture. The powder is finely milled and blends effortlessly. For daytime it is perfect as it adds just the right amount of warmth. I have worn it during hot and humid days and it stays put perfectly and doesn’t turn patchy. Formula is matte and thats what I prefer.
Sweeping the brush in the pan does kick off some powder, which is the only con I could find in it.
Pigmentation & Staying Power – The shade is quite pigmented and I need only a light sweep to get the desired intensity. Also it stays on for good 6+ hours.
Kiko Flawless Fusion Bronzer Powder is priced at Rs 1250 for 12 gm
If you love bronzers or looking for a good matte bronzer then do check out Kiko Flawless Fusion Bronzer Powder. The formula is smooth and blends seamlessly. It stays on for a long time and doesn’t turn patchy. Also let’s not forget how gorgeous the case is.
