Right! I think this new collection from KIKO is going to go down extremely well! The packaging is lovely, the products offer some innovative twists and once more we are getting high performance at really accessible price points. Here’s a look at the KIKO Artist Collection.
I love this white packaging with the artist’s watercolour brush stroke across it. It is so pretty and really expresses the theme of the collection well. Lip pencils look like artists’ tools, the powders in pans look like watercolour pieces and there’s excitement in the product choices too – I was particularly drawn to the cushion highlighter!

KIKO Artist Glowing Pearl Cushion Highlighter
Ooh I love this. You probably know that I am obsessed with highlighter and I really like this delivery system. It’s a clicky pen and the product dispenses via a cushion tip. There are 2 shades – I have 01. It contains very fine glitter so great if you like a bit of sparkle.
KIKO Artist Blending Wave Multicolor Blush
Oh this is so pretty! It’s a blush with 2 shades that you swirl together for a fresh healthy glow. There are 4 shades. I have 01 Creative Peach.
KIKO Artist Signature Eyemarker
KIKO Artist Stroke Mineral Loose Eyeshadow
This has a super fine texture and delivers a really intense result. There are 6 shades and I have shade 02. It is hard to capture the glimmer this gives, but it is impressive!
KIKO Artist Fine Art Lip Pencil
I love the shape of these pencils – just like the ones I used to use in school art lessons. KIKO always do lip liner really well. There are 6 shades and I have 04 and 06.
KIKO Artist Colour Click Lipstick
These have a click opening system (I think I have seen something similar from Chanel), and the texture is smooth and creamy. I have the shade 05 and there are 5 others.
KIKO Artist Brushes
I love these brushes with their ombre bristles!! And they are super soft! This is the foundation brush and the powder brush.
KIKO Artist Blooming Glow
Now this looks very Guerlain! This is a revitalising serum for hydration, smoothness and radiance. I haven’t tried this properly, but I like the few bits of KIKO skincare that I have tried. It is super affordable and this promises to be a great base for foundation.
It feels very hydrating and give the skin a nice subtle glow.
So that’s the Artist Collection! What do you think? It’s available from February 2016. Find KIKO HERE.
