Oh Kiko – you do suck me in everytime! Say hello to the Kiko Cosmetics Modern Tribes Collection for Summer 2015. The collection brings together warm earthy colours and bold energetic colours which resonates the majesty of noble tribal warriors. This concept behind the collection completely comes through the packaging, I love love the packaging – I vote for this to become their permanent packaging! The wooden packaging is light, and the products inside live up to Kiko’s usual high standards.
The collection contains ten limited edition products containing foundations, highlighters, blushers, bronzers, lip crayons, mascara and a brush. There’s something for everyone in my opinion, the beauty collector in me is screaming to get hold of the whole collection and just hoard it forever!
I’ve been trying out some of the products and wanted to share some of my favourites. First up, the Kiko Cosmetics Modern Tribes Sunproof BB Cream SPF30 (£8.90). I have the shade medium which is just a touch warmer than my face at the moment, but it’ll definitely match me in summer. Even now I’ve been wearing it, it just looks like I’ve caught the sun a little. The consistency is similar to a moisturiser and I like to apply it with a buffing brush for an even finish. It doesn’t give much coverage but evens out my skin and makes my acne scars stand out less. I still need to go in with concealer for my scars. I’ve been using this BB cream for the past few days and enjoyed it so much! I forgot how nice it is not to use a foundation when you’re out! The SPF30 means I don’t have to go in with an SPF as well. The finish is dewy but not too dewy that it makes you look greasy. With my oily/combination skin, I do have to powder a little, but only where I need it most. At under £9, it’s a really nice alternative to foundations.
The Kiko Cosmetics Modern Tribes Tri-bal Soul Baked Blushes (£14.90) are the star of the collection, in my opinion. The three coloured baked blushers offer a nice diffused colour with a sheen to match that of the Hourglass blushes! Although not a dupe, I do think these are very similar to the Hourglass Ambient Blushes. The pigmentation is amazing, as the colour is buildable. I have the shade 02 Mysterious Earth, which has a peachy pink colour, perfect for all seasons. The packaging is wooden and the closes magnetically. This a piece for the collection! I’m a beauty product collector (read: hoarder) and this is just my kinda hit. I don’t have the bronzer yet, but rest assured it’s going to end up in my collection soon enough!
