KIKO 100 Cookie Soft Touch Blush

KIKO Soft Touch Blush ($12.00 for 0.17 oz.) is supposed to be a “radiant and highly pigmented blush” with “long lasting colour.” It’s a powder blush that has a thinner, fairly smooth, blendable texture that ranges from semi-opaque to mostly opaque coverage. Most shades are matte to satin with the more matte shades still having a natural-looking finish to them (not flat or dry-looking applied). The wear has varied from six to eight hours depending on the shade.

Per readers comments, it appears these have been discontinued in some countries, though all shades except one appear to be available on the U.S. website. (It’s hard to tell if they’re just on sale, as they’re presently available for $3.90 a pop instead of $12, or if they are discounted to move, as I have seen KIKO do 30-50% off before.) I wasn’t intending to review these back-to-back but will be doing my best to get reviews out quickly in light of seeming to be discontinued. Readers have said the replacement is the Shade Fusion Trio Blush (which I haven’t tried, so I don’t know anything about), which would sure be a bummer, since it is more expensive and a trio of shades, so it is different enough that it doesn’t seem like a true replacement to me (boo!).

KIKO 100 Cookie Soft Touch Blush ($12.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium-dark, caramel brown with warm, yellow-orange tones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that applied evenly to the skin. This shade wore for seven hours on me before fading.

KIKO 102 Natural Pink Soft Touch Blush ($12.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy brown with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage that was easily diffused to sheerer coverage, if desired, as it was very blendable. The texture is thin, smooth but not dusty or powdery. It wore for seven hours on me before fading. Urban Decay Strip Blush (P) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Between the Sheets (P, $8.00) is darker, brighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Melba (P, $22.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). bareMinerals The Close Call (P, $22.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Tarte Exposed (P, $28.00) is cooler (80% similar).
