The Kiko Generation Next is their spring entry – lots of vivid shades and interesting textures (and a cushion CC) – but the item I like best is this mosaic blush. I know mosaic has been done before but this is just a gorgeous looking version that made me literally smile when I opened it. There are four shades to this and the colour I have here is Luminous Baby Pink (£14.90).

Pay-off isn’t amazing but it’s perfectly buildable for pretty spring cheeks.

The Cool Touch Eyeshadow (£8.90)! I said they were coming, and here’s the first I’ve seen for the UK market. A cushion eye-shadow. It’s not quite the same texturally as cushion foundation or blush in that it isn’t as liquidy or bouncy but there is definitely a slight creme/liquid element to it, hence the name ‘cool touch’.

As you can see, the pay-off is off the scale! This shade is Alluring Turquoise. It ends up as a dry finish and you can use it as liner or shadow – or actually, as a wash because the texture is quite versatile. There are 8 shades in this selection.

It’s anyone’s guess why this is called Frosted Look – although it’s billed as shine, I thought it erred to the side of matte, but I like how they’ve pointed the nib.

The nib gives a lipstick effect to a lip pen. My sample isn’t named, but it’s 06 in number (£7.50).

Kiko is basically King of Liner – I’ve never had a Kiko Liner that I didn’t like. For the Kiko Generation Next collection, there are six Crystal Eyeliners (£6.90).

The pay-off is great; they’re soft and creamy but stay well on the eye. The shades I have here are 04 (dark grey) and 06 (green).

The Kiko Generation Next collection hasn’t quite made it on-line yet, but it’s launching any day now.
