One of the new products that I've picked at the opening of the new KIKO London store was this KIKO Universal Fit Hydrating Foundation* (RRP £6.90). I am always very wary of trying new foundations, I like to stick with what I know and what works for me, so I usually go for Bourjois or Revlon. But talking to super-friendly sales assistant I was persuaded to go for something new and it seemed an ideal product for me - who doesn't want a perfect coverage and hydration at the same time? 

Foundation comes in ten colour shades, so everyone can find their match and I was told to go for shade 05 - Light Beige. It is rather easy to apply with my fingers (that's how I always apply my foundation), but be careful not to apply too much, because it is thick and settles rather quickly, so you may not be able to blend it in easily. You need a small amount to cover the entire face and that's why I don't like that it is not in a pump bottle - I think with this formula pump bottle would be better to dispose a perfect amount of the product. 

The other thing I didn't like is that the fact that although it claims to be fragrance free, it does have a distinctive 'beauty product' smell - I am not sure how to describe it, but all I know is that I'm not enjoying it. On the plus side, the coverage is really good and I only needed a slight touch up of concealer in strategic places and gentle dusting with No7 Perfect Light Loose Powder to finish my make up.

  1. I like the sound of this, especially with it being in 10 shades, but do prefer foundations in pump bottles too x

  3. Ooh I'm quite interested in this! Definitely prefer foundations with a pump, but I've been struggling to find a foundation that I love - everything seems to be light and dewy at the moment but I feel like I need a higher coverage. Will look into this, thanks :) x

  4. For £6.90 this sounds lovely - I'm always on the lookout for new foundations to try. I don't mind products that have a slight smell to them, so I will definitely visit the Kiko store next time I'm in London.
