Kiko Mineral Compact Foundation

I probably
don’t have to tell you once again that I’m very new to the whole make-up thing.
To slowly build a little collection, I pretty much splurged on everything I
could get my hands on while in London. Now that that’s
almost a month ago, time really flies,
I thought it would be the perfect moment for a review.

The product
I’ve been most interested in using was the Kiko Soft Focus Compact Mineral Foundation. Now
I’ve never, ever, worn anything on my
face other than some BB cream every now and then. Therefore going straight on
to foundations seemed a bit too much for me. The next best option was a foundation in a powder form, which
gives you a softer and more natural finish, especially if it’s mineral make-up.

At first I
had a lot of trouble with finding the right shade for my skin tone, the girl in
the store really helped me figure it all out. At the time I was pretty tanned
as the sun was shining in London (I know
unbelievable) so that didn’t make things easier. Fortunately Kiko has such a
wide variety of shades, and eventually we came to the decision that shade 11 Caramel was a perfect match. 

Now as you
can see from the photos, you can barely tell the difference! The foundation is
really buildable, besides it can be used either wet or dry. I personally always
use this product dry and apply with either the Flat Foundation Brush or the Real Techniques. The girl from the store recommended those brushes to me, as I really wanted a
sheer finish.

I don’t
wear this product on a daily basis, but I can really tell the difference when I
wear it. Sometimes you just want a little more coverage, or sometimes you
really need it! All in all, I’m very
happy with this foundation and I will definitely buy it again when I run out.

Lots of Love,
