Today I have a review for you all. A few months ago, I bought some Kiko products while I was in Tenerife. The matte powder is also one of them. I got to test it out for some time now so time to get this product reviewed!
What is it?
A white fixation loose powder that mattifies, reduces shine and sets your make-up.
What does it promise?
It reduces too much shine without a leaving a dull finish. With his high technological formula and micro particles, your skin will be soft, smooth and mattified. It gives your skin the perfect texture and a silky touch. The product is perfect for touchups during the day. It will not dry out the skin.
The product definitely reduces shine, as you can see on the pictures. It takes away every shine but I think it looks a bit dull. It leaves my skin very powdery and if you use a generous amount, you can feel it laying on your skin. I love that the color is clear, so it doesn’t change the way your foundation looks, it only sets it. As a setting powder, it would be perfect, especially under the eyes.
The packaging is a bit unpractical. The applicator it comes with is very hard and not very compatible with your face. I most likely prefer a brush than this applicator. The probleem is that when you take the powder with you, some powder is hanging on the applicator, which is also the lid, so you can’t remove the applicator. Than you have to brush off the applicator onto your brush which is quite inconvenient.

I would recommend this product for people with a greasy skin, that need a good shine and oil controller. If you are that person, this product will be your best friend. If you want to set your under-eyes, this product would be good as well. If you like supermatte make-up, I would go and buy this one!
If you have dry skin, this is a no go. It would be very bad for your skin to use as it will dry out more and leave it flakey. The skin would look more dull and unhealthy.
I like the product for setting my under-eyes. It helps cancel out discolorations when you had not much sleep. It has a lightening effect. On my face, I use a small amount since it looks so powdery and I do not like this at all. Will I purchase it again? Probably not. I will definitely use it up, but I wasn’t blown away by it and the disadvantages weigh a bit more than the advantages. I’d rather try other setting powders!
I give this product a score of 5/10.
That was it for today everyone! I hope you enjoyed and let me know in the comments if you think this review was helpful and if you have tried out the invisible powder by Kiko.
See you next time!
