And here I go again with my Italian goodies! This is another one of the amazing products I brought home with me from this beloved country. I used to never have Kiko in my makeup stash and now for some reason, it has a permanent home in my everyday makeup routine. Being the gigantic blush hoarder that I am, I was so proud of myself when I didn't buy one blush in Italy. However, of course that changed the last day we were day. I didn't go over my shopping budget, but I wasn't going home without having spend all of my budget, right?! Right?! So in the end I did end up with a blush, how could I not..?
The Soft Touch Blush is a powder blush that is available in 12 different shades. They retail for €7,50 and contain 5g. The packaging is small, compact and matte black (the same finish as the Nars packaging). "Orange Coral" is, well, an orange coral! It has little hints of shimmer but the particles are so small that it's very subtle and natural. It has a silky, not too powdery finsh. Blending it out isn't the easiest, but with a few swipes of your brush, you should be just fine. It says it's "smearproof", and that's exactly right. It lasted on my cheeks the entire day, no touch-ups necessary.

I was pleasantly surprised by this blush! It could easily compete with some of the more expensive blushes I own and it stays in place the entire day!
