KIKO 106 Beige Rose Soft Touch Blush ($12.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium brown with warm, reddish tones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation with a very smooth, blendable consistency. It wasn’t stiff, but the texture was firmer relative to a lot of the other shades in the range (which tended to be a little powdery in the pan). This shade wore well for seven and a half hours before fading.

KIKO 107 Tomato Soft Touch Blush ($12.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark reddish-coral with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, fairly blendable texture. It could have been easier to apply and diffuse on the skin, but it wasn’t a fight to even it out–fairer skin tones may prefer something more foolproof, though. The color lasted for eight hours on me. MAC Flirting with Danger (P, $29.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Savage (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Milani Bronze Burst #3 (PiP, ) is brighter (95% 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!).

Some pretty shades but yeah, this blush formula no longer appears on the UK site so I would guess discontinued. The Shade Fusion Trio and the stick blush are the only permanent collection blushes I can see now.

My favourite KIKO product would have to be the long lasting stick eyeshadow. Giant range of shades and they’re awesome!
