kiko fierce spirit summer collection review and swatches


KIKO have brought out a limited edition summer collection called fierce spirit - it's inspired by warm atmospheres, earth and fire.  Everything looks so warm and vibrant - it's the perfect collection to set off a tan, even if it's a fake one...


The *sun bronzing blush has a mix of three colours which you can use mixed together or separately.  The darkest is a matte terracotta type colour, then there's a warm coral and a shimmery pink.  Swirled together you get a lovely glowy coral rose colour.  I'm in love with the design of the compact on this one too.


*Glo touch is a duo product for both lips and cheeks.  I have the rather fabulously named bitter margarita - it's a bright pinky coral and you can use this for a subtle hint of colour or you can really build it up as I've done in this swatch.

The *colour shock long lasting eyeshadows gave me a bit of the fear when I opened the lids as they look so strong, but swatched they're gorgeous.  Both have a beautiful iridescence to them when they catch the light.  You can't see it as well with decisive stone, but it has hints of bluey-purple shining through the deep grey when the light hits - it's a lovely mysterious sort of shade - perfect for smokey eyes on summer nights.

Both shades applied really easily - they're a very creamy formula and they're highly pigmented so a little goes a long way.


I also tried the *sun pearl nail lacquers in two shades I'd probably never have picked for myself but I'm glad to have them in my collection now because they scream summer.  You literally need to put sunglasses on to look at amable chartreuse.  Both have subtle shimmery glitter running through which catches the light and adds to the whole glistening summer vibe of the collection.  These polishes were really opaque in two coats and very glossy too.  For some reason they make me think of being on a cruise ship - no idea why!


Lastly is this *sunproof BB cream which has a super creamy texture and high coverage for a BB cream but it still feels light on the skin.  It also has spf 30.  I have the shade medium which is a bit too dark for my face right now, but once I'm (fake) tanned I think it'll be just right.

There are lots of other products and shades in the fierce spirit collection - you can see them all here - KIKO cosmetics fierce spirit.

What do you think of the fierce spirit collection?  Sun bronzing blush and glo touch are my favourites.

  2. I've heard of Kiko but we don't have the brand over here. The product look amazing and cute though :) I like the nail polish but I don't really like the tiny bit of shimmer in it, haha - I'm just weird like that I guess :) Great review!

  6. The green polish is to die for I have such a thing for greens & blues, the slight shimmer going through is not too much either. Great post.
