Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Kiko Shade Fusion Trio Blush, I have the shade 01 Natural Rose.
This blush came out when the whole draping (*) trend exploded so the idea is that you got three shades to create a gradient effect on the cheeks.
It comes in 6 different shades and you can get the Kiko Shade Fusion Trio Blush from kiko.com or in store for 12,00$.
(* Draping means doing contouring with blush, so instead of using contour and highlighter to sculpt the face you use two blush tones)
The packaging is absolutely stunning and luxurious even for a drugstore product (would you consider Kiko drugstore?).
It is this flat mirrored component with KK engraved in it. It has a magnetic closure and it comes with a mirror on the inside too. The outside packaging is a pain to keep clean but other than that is stunning and really sturdy. Overall I love it.
I got it a while ago so I don’t have the outside packaging but it comes in a cardboard box.
SHADES & PIGMENTATION
As you can see it comes with three shades that you can apply individually or mixed together.
Since the pan is so tiny it’s quite hard to use one shade only so I tend to mix all of them together or to use the top two or the bottom two depending on what shade I want.
The colour looks super natural and it pares with a lot of different looks.
- 1 is a slightly shimmery pink
- 2 is a matt browny pink
- 3 is a dark rose
The powder is really finely milled and soft to the touch, the effect on the cheeks is basically matt but not flat since the first shade is more shiny.
These shades are not the most pigmented but I don’t mind with blushes, I rather build them up instead of having clown cheeks.
They look a bit powdery on the face but they easily blend out.
APPLICATION & LASTING POWER
(You can see the details of this look here: Falling in Autumn #MakeupMonday)
It is really easy to apply and it blends like a dream, the colour is also easy to build up to the intensity that you want.
On me, it lasts for about 5 hours before fading, so it’s not the most long-lasting product but it fades really nicely and it’s not patchy.
- Colour: 9/10
- Longevity: 6/10
- Application: 8/10
- Texture: 9/10
- Pigmentation: 8/10
- Packaging: 10/10
This blush is really pretty. I love the colour and it pares with most looks if you don’t want your blush to clash with your eye/lip make up. It’s really easy to use and it blends really easily. Doesn’t last a long time but it never looks patchy or weird. I like that is not really pigmented but you can build it up to a full colour, it makes easier to use. The packaging is stunning even if it will always look dirty and for that price, in my opinion, you can’t go wrong. Definitely, something I’m happy to have in my collection even if I don’t use it daily.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
