[productsample/affiliate] Kiko is bringing a vinyl twist to their Pop Revolution collection – it’s pop art inspired so it’s all about colour but the brand has kept them wearable and versatile.
I like the fact that each disc has two eye colours – I think it would have been easy just to settle for one so it does feel that the brand has gone the extra mile on this. Kiko always, always swatches like a premium brand – their eye shadow formulas are seamless and I don’t have a bad thing to say!
The pink and gold duo (£9.99) is Bordeaux-Gold and the bronze gold duo is Brown-Shell. You’ll see in the swatch that they just gleam on the skin.
I’m not so excited by the matte satin lip stylos (£9.99) – shown here in Beige Peach and Brick. They’re nicely pigmented with a smooth glide application but once the colourful packaging has gone, they’re just not terribly interesting.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
The Blush To Go cheek (£9.99) shades – very pretty but hard to work with. The blush is in the lid so every time you put the lid back on the sponge tip touches the blush and re-loads. But as you apply by dotting your cheeks you’re very reliant on the powder being immediately blendable with a brush and it just isn’t. Once you’ve dotted, it’s then very hard to merge the product evenly. There are much better – and easier – blush products out there.
So much of the appeal of this collection is in the visuals – but when you drill down to the basics, the stand outs are the eye colours which I’d really recommend. Kiko puts out many collections each year and I loved their last one so I think we can forgive a miss every now and again. You can find the collection HERE.
