KIKO 103 Golden Peach Soft Touch Blush

KIKO 103 Golden Peach Soft Touch Blush ($12.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium, warm-toned pink with gold shimmer and a frosted finish. This was one of the more shimmery shades in the range. It had semi-opaque coverage with a soft, lightly powdery consistency that blended well but only wore for six hours before the blush started to breakdown.

KIKO 111 Classic Rose Soft Touch Blush ($12.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a plummy copper with warm, reddish-orange undertones and a soft, frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation with a fairly soft, blendable consistency that ran a little firmer in the pan than ideal, but it didn’t seem to impact the overall application. This shade wore for seven hours before fading. Surratt Beauty De Cherubique (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | 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!).
