Kiko Radiant Fusion Baked Powder1

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

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.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Muse, would you recommend using this powder as a setting, finishing or foundation?

    • Isabella Muse

      It’ll work great as a sheerer foundation Anna or just a little application over your favorite foundation. so either/or! 🙂

  • Laura

    I know this is a super old post, but for a fellow dry skin girl, would you recommend the Hourglass Ambient powders for setting rather than something like the Kiko?
