Kiko launched their Spring collection at the end of January, and it’s the Tuscan Sun Collection with ten different products but my standout has to be the Kiko Tuscan Sunshine Blush.
The collection has been created to leave the “greyness of winter behind and let yourself be pampered by the first rays of sunshine on your face, by the fragrances and colours of summer that burst among the rolling Tuscan hills.”
Kiko have created the collection to have Italian charm, with innovative and sensorial textures and a mix of fresh shades to enhance the features, revitalise the complexion and give a radiant appearance.
Kiko Tuscan Sunshine Blush
It’s special because:
-it harmoniously combines two vibrant spring colours, for a sophisticated and radiant degradé effect;
-it has a silky and highly pigmented texture, infused with the delicate scent of iris;
-it’s easy to blend, allowing you to build up the effect from light to intense;
-its handy compact mirror makes it perfect for on-the-go touch-ups.
Apply the blush to the cheekbones with the flower-shaped end of the Tuscan Sunshine 2 in 1 Brush, blending outwards.

The Kiko Tuscan Sunshine Blush is available in three different colourways; 01 Florence Dream, 02 Tuscan Iris and 03 Square of Miracle.
All three shades are £14.99 each, and contain 9g of product within a beautiful duochrome effect pink rounded compact with a peony design on the top of the compact. The same peony design is engraved into the powder, which looks so pretty especially against the ombréd design in the pan.
Florence Dream is the shade shown in the image above, with a matte peach and pink design, Tuscan Iris is a matte peach and bronze design whilst Square of Miracle is a matte rosy pink and plum design.
All three shades are beautiful, and the pan’s large enough that you can use each side individually or blend them together giving you three different ways to use them. £14.99 does seem a little too expensive for Kiko, but the design is very pretty so it might be worth holding out for one of their discount weekends to save some money.
