Oh Hi Under $10 Kiko Blush Cocoa Shock That Smell Like Vanilla!

I purchased this item and I receive a small commission if you shop using the links in this post.


Kiko Blush Cocoa Shock Palettes are on sale for $9.90 each at today so, I thought, haul out the pictures!

I purchased these a few months ago when they were $18 each. Why, yes, I am kicking myself! I honestly don’t regret the purchase though.


Why? Because they are great for heavy handed peeps like me. These contain two shades of baked blush with a matte finish. They simply can’t be overdone. I’m really heavy with blush application. I mean my blog is filled with horror story face of the day photos where I have severe clown cheeks. This is my beauty blogging life, welcome to my wild and crazy world. I’m not exactly America’s Next Top Makeup Artist unfortunately. So yeah, formulas like this=Makeup God Sent.





These are soft, sheer but easy to build and honestly, I can go wild with them and never overdo the color on my cheeks no matter how much I apply. You gotta love that!

They were originally offered in four shade selections but Kiko has three on stick. For ten bucks, they are well worth a haul. They do have a very faint vanilla scent but don’t worry, it’s barely noticeable.

Go haul at (Free Shipping for orders $15 or more). PS Use promo code HOLIDAY30 for an extra 30% Off any items that are not already on sale!

P.S. It’s New Year’s! Almost! I have a lot of mega plans going on for the New Year but if you’re sticking out at home and Netflixing and chilling your way into 2017 (You lucky dog! Nothing like sitting cuddled up with friends, family, and loved ones and watching a good show or movie during on the telly during the Holidays) you should totes look up the Living and the Dead. I watched it back in October on BBC America and was so sad they weren’t going in for a Season 2. It’s a supernatural period series that had has this brilliantly creepy atmosphere that isn’t over the top scary. A friend of mine recently watched, so, I was like, “Oh wow! I really need to recommend this to friends on the blog!”

Also, if you’re a film buff, go see Elle! OMG! I saw it last night and Isabelle Huppert was so good in it. I’m actually very partial to The Piano Teacher with her because I absolutely adore Benoรฎt Magimel. I mean, putting Isabelle and Benoรฎt in the same movie is like freaking fan girl overload for me. But I have to admit Elle might be my new fav film with her. It’s quite a compelling film.

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.

    I need to stay off your blog for the rest of the day as I’ve placed two orders already! Tried Kiko blushes last summer for the first time and loved them so HAD to get these.

    I think we should start a thread with people recommending shows/movies. Almost everything you mention I have already watched and loved and if I haven’t seen it I make a point to watch it and become obsessed!!! I am constantly looking for new/similar things to watch but it’s hard when most of my family friends don’t have the same (good ) taste as me.

    • Isabella Muse

      YES! let’s haha ๐Ÿ˜€ I love that idea and I LOVE that you actually read when I’m babbling about new tv shows/etc…! Did you see/watch The Living and the Dead? If so, we must discuss it hehe! And Elle? ๐Ÿ˜€ I can’t express enough how much I love you read those little blurbs I leave about tv shows/movies. People come for makeup so I’m always worried I’m boring everyone to tears when I start fangirling out over a new tv show haha!

        I adore it!!! I haven’t seen either and am so excited to have two new things to watch and will probably start The Living and the Dead tonight! You actually have turned me onto so many shows/movies. For example Poldark…ahhh…swoon. I seriously live for masterpiece classic but somehow managed to miss that one! Thank goodness you talked about it here. Have you seen North and South??? Seriously my favorite BBC ppriduction EVER. Made me fall in love with Richard Armitage…double swoon.

        • Isabella Muse

          UGH don’t talk to me about Richard Armitage! North and South is lovely ๐Ÿ˜€ hehe! I’m so so glad you have two new things to watch now hehe! LMK what you think of the Living and the Dead! I loved it. Romantic, slightly creepy, and quite an interesting twist! I live and breath Masterpiece ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m so glad you discovered Poldark! You should watch the old version too if you have some time! It’s quite lovely as well! You, of course, probably watched Colin Firth’s P&P right? ๐Ÿ˜€ That’s another one to add to your list if you never watched it.
