Looking for the perfect Summer blush? Might I recommend Kiko Summer 2.0 Baked Blush? Available in three shade selections these two toned baked blushes are incredibly beautiful and packed with pigment. I think sometimes people are a bit wary of baked blushes for fear they are pigmented but no worries, Kiko packs these blushes with intense color and a silky formula that pops on cheeks.

Take a look at my review and swatches below.

Kiko Summer 2.0 Baked Blush are $19 each and come housed in a gorgeous beige rose gold boxed. Inside you’ll find each blush wrapped in tissue paper and sealed closed with a Kiko emblem sticker. I know, I sound like a broken record but you really have to give props to Kiko for packaging their products so beautifully. If you gave this to someone who was unfamiliar with the brand they’d probably think it was priced at around $35-$40 when in fact it’s a mere $19 bucks. Each compact has a swirl design, full-size mirror, and is the same gorgeous beige rose gold as the box it comes in. These are a generous 0.26 oz in size as well.

I happen to be a lover of baked blushes so when I got these I was terribly excited to dive right in and use them. I know not everyone is a fan of baked formula but I promise these are super pigmented, super silky, and oh so easy to blend. Don’t tell Laura Geller I said this but they have an even better formulation than Baked Blush-n-Brighten.

Kiko has them available in three Summer-y shades. If you’re looking for warmth and color I’d go with Coral Bay or Red Sunset. If you want a little more subtly and a lot more glow I’d choose Natural Beach. My favorite was Red Sunset as this contains a gorgeous terracotta coral shade and a stunning coral raspberry when combined create a super pigmented vibrant burst of coral pink on cheeks. Word to the wise, use lightly because as I said these pack pigment! If you’re seeing more warmth the combination of bronze and dusky orange in Coral Bay are perfect to add a touch of warmth and color to cheeks. Natural Beach is the lighter of the shades and would be best for fairer skin types. This is made up of a light luminous creamy beige and has the texture, consistency, and finish of Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder where as the blush shade is a pretty light pink. This shade is the most shimmery of the three. Below I swatched each shade individually and the last swatches is one of the two colors combined.

The formula on all of these is soft, silky, easy to blend, and has an airbrushed finish. I just can’t rave how beautiful these look on my skin. They don’t adhere to drier areas nor do they look cakey. They are incredibly smooth and beautiful. I was also very impressed with the wear time. I applied at around 7AM and it remained vibrant until 10PM. It just didn’t budge, fade, or lose intensity through the wear.

All in all, I can’t rave Kiko Summer 2.0 Baked Blush enough! These are gorgeous and well worth a pick up!

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 I really love the red sunset shade. I am trying not to buy anymore makeup including blushes. I just got the new Becca & Chrissy palette yesterday. It is very pretty. How much is shipping? Thanks

    I’m really loving Kiko! Have eyeliner&Cocoa shock blush I just got 2 Ambient blushes to try in that Sephora sale, ugh..I think I like these better

  • Andi

    I fell in love with Kiko last summer and I think I need to pick up either the natural or coral or both LOL

  • Brandy

    There’s a Kiko store in the mall by me. I might just stop by and pick one of these up. I’m just scared I’ll go in for one blush and leave with ten more things.
