Kiko Radiant Fusion Baked Powder is one of a few new Perfecting Powders and Blush that Kiko launches for Spring 2016.
Radiant Fusion Baked Powder is a baked mineral powder with a luminous finish that’s available in six shade selections and quite reminded me of Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder at a glance.
Let’s take a look!
Kiko Radiant Fusion Baked Powder ($18) weights in at 0.35 oz and comes in a gorgeous gunmetal compact with a full size mirror inside. I think the presentation, as with most all Kiko Cosmetics offerings, is stunning. It’s a very elegant compact that has a nice bit of weight behind it.
Sadly, this isn’t a formula that works well for me at the moment as my skin is terribly dry and it accentuates drier areas on my face even though the formula is apparently rich in Vitamin E and Argan Oil. If you do purchase it just use a bushier brush to apply it as this will sheer out the powder and make it stick to those drier areas on your face more easily.
I wouldn’t say this is a dupe of Hourglass’s formula but I will say for the price the texture and consistency is gorgeous. This is a very soft, silky consistency that has just enough sheer pigment to brighten up a complexion and give a soft focused finish. Apparently micronized pigments give a soft radiant finish but I didn’t really notice any luminosity here and I felt like the finish more demi-matte.
I’m not really a powder kinda girl in all honesty but Kiko Radiant Fusion Baked Powder should make powder users quite happy at this price. It’s presented in gorgeous packaging and not only has a higher end look but a higher end formula as well.
Kiko Radiant Fusion Baked Powder is launching now in stores and at kikocosmetics.com.
