I do love the feeling of opening an expensive pot of face cream, the click on a golden blusher palette or the scent of a lipstick that’s set you back more than a three course dinner – but I also love the buzz that accompanies discovering a dupe for a fraction of the cost of some of my premium favourites. Kiko Cosmetics are still flying somewhat under the radar, thanks to their limited flagship stores and predominately online presence, but their makeup is some of the best. They identify trends, push limits, curate beautiful collections and wrap it all up in an affordable package – this stunning ‘Generation Next’ mosaic highlighter will only set you back £14.90, while channeling the vibes of something nearly three times the price.
Containing lilac, pink, turquoise and golden shades, the combination
provides something incredibly radiant and natural on practically any
skin tone. You may not think that the colour quad could provide your complexion with something balancing and glowing, but they actually enhance the tonality in the skin while minimising redness. Better still, the Guerlain Meteorites Light Revealing Pearls of Powder (£37.50) contain all the same tones as this beautiful powder, only in fiddly ball format, for a much higher price point. If you don’t want to add anything too shimmery or dark to your skin until the summer months, this is a great product to bridge the seasons – just brush on to the top of cheekbones and along the bridge of the nose to add definition and reflect the light.
The Kiko Cosmetics ‘Generation Next’ Mosaic Highlighter is available in their flagship stores, as well as online, priced £14.90.
