Kiko Free Soul for Spring 2018 just launched and there are so many things I need from this collection! I know we had some rather sad news about Kiko going bankrupt and closing many of their US store locations but they still have their online shop and the bankruptcy news hasn’t stopped them from launching a stellar Spring 2018 Collection.
Here are five things I need from that collection ASAP.
P.S. You might need them too!
Kiko Free Soul Baking Powder ($16) is a new matte face powder available in banana and peach shades which of course, had me at hello. I don’t bake my under eye area nor my face but I am an avid user of banana shaded powders to set my concealer as I like their effect under my eyes since they provide a nice brightening effect and the perfect finishing touch under my eyes. This is available in banana and peach shades and they actually look a lot like the Kat Von D Lock-It Brightening Powder.
Another item to catch my eye is the new Kiko Free Soul Concealer which is a mere $12 bucks and promises a fluid formula. Fluid? I’m in. Fluids are typically easier to blend and that’s exactly what they promise. Apparently it has a baking finish effect hmmm…! And provides full coverage. We’ll see! Speaking about things for your eyes there is also a new Free Soul Blurring Eye Balm! Let me take things way back for a minute here! Anyone remember Clarins Instant Smooth Line Correcting Concentrate and L’Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Eye Smoother? That’s exactly what this reminds me of! Although they do say it provides instant radiance which gives eyes a fresh look. Hmm wonder if it’ll make a good prep for concealer?!
Speaking of blurring there’s a new Free Soul Blurring & Moisturizing Face Cream ($28) which appears to be a dupe of Clinique Pep-Start HydroBlur Moisturizer which I happen to like a lot. This smooths, hydrates, and contains collagen and hyaluronic acid to prep skin prior to makeup application.
And finally the Kiko Free Soul Eyeshadow Palette ($22) in Free Spirits looks like a gorgeous selection of warmer dusky roses!
With all the silliness of unicorns and mermaids making the rounds this Spring I’m happy to see a brand who actually put out a Spring Collection of wearable shades that contains not only some great color cosmetics but some great prepping items as well.
