Kiko Velvet Touch Blush 07 Natural Rose

ponedeljek, april 27, 2015


Though I'm a fan of cream blushes, I've only owned one in a stick form before this one, which I rarely used. This Kiko one caught my attention because of the shade as I wanted something more natural looking and not bright peachy or pink like a lot of cream blushes are. I'm a huge fan of shades like Catrice's Rose Royce and I'm Nuts About you, so a natural dusty rose colour and Natural Rose reminded me most of both these blushes, though there weren't many swatches of it online.


Contrary to what I expected, Natural Rose is in fact quite pink on me. It's a natural pink shade on my cheeks and I like it despite not being what I wanted. It's a nicely pigmented colour and one swipe leaves me with enough colour for a nice flush, while if I apply it with a brush, it ends up looking brighter and pinker. The finish is natural, so not dewy nor matte.


I also tried this on the lips and I think it's one of the most beautiful nude shades for my complexion. It's a nude shade, but not corpsy nude and it has a touch of warmth to it. It feels a bit dry on the lips, but it's not too uncomfortable and you can always wear a lip balm under it. I forgot to do a full face picture with this on the lips. 


The texture is buttery and transfers well on the cheeks in an even swipe, however, I find it's not as easy to blend it evenly on the cheeks with fingers. It's nothing major, but since you're swiping it directly on the skin and blending later, it moves the foundation around, so it can give a bit of a patchy effect, especially when it's fading. I find that it works a lot better if I use a stippling brush to blend. 

Staying power is quite a strange thing at this blush. If I use fingers it fades a bit patchy and fast, while if I use a brush it stays put a lot better and fades evenly. 


Packaging look nice and expensive, but the mechanism broke fast and the blush won't go back in unless I push it.

This is one of those blushes that is neither spectacular nor horrible and I do like, just not love it. I actually prefer this as a lip colour despite the dryness, but as far as cream blushes go these don't beat my favourite ones from Bourjois. I got this type of blush so I would have an easy-and-quick to apply product, but since I have to use a brush for a nicer finish, it turned to be not so quick. If you really like any shade of these, they are a nice buy. These cost 7.90€. 

Have a great day!

  1. Is this what love at first sight looks like? Čisto me je prevzel ta odtenek. Mislim, da bom kmalu morala naročiti par stvari, ali pa se odpeljati do Italije :D

  3. Se bom še jaz pridružila. Tudi meni je ta odtenek začuda všeč:). Sicer nisem fanica cream blushev, včasih pa bi si kakšnega želela za kakšen hiter makeup. Je pa res, da ima Essence potem npr. vedno neke žive odtenek. Takih res umirjenih nevtralnih težko najdem pri poceni znamkah.

    1. Bolj nevtralne kremne blushe je res težko najti. Vsi so živo koralni ali pa barbie roza, kar sicer izgleda lepo, ampak umirjene variante so bolj priročne :).

  4. Really interesting, since I never looked into the cream blushes from Kiko. I just started applying my cream blushes with a brush and find myself loving old ones every day more and more since the more creamy ones apply like a dream with a brush.. and my old favourite gets better on with my fingers, still (because it is a real cream-to-powder formula).
    Just today, the mechanism of one of my Kiko Eyeshadow sticks broke like litterally into pieces! Why, Kiko, why? This seems to be a common problem with this brand... *grrrrr*

    P.S. I know you mentioned the Maybelline Cream Blushes a lot and I wanted to buy one.. but they are no longer available here in my corner. :-(

    1. The eyeshadow's mechanism works fine on mine, but the blush's broke after third or forth use :/ It's not so cheap that I could just forgive them for poor quality of packaging as 8 € is a lot for a drugstore blush.

      Yes, I talked about Maybelline cream blushes a lot in the past, but Bourjois' have an almost identical formula and better packaging, especially if you like using a brush to apply it. Maybelline's are still sold in places like Feel Unique :).
