I’m late to the Kiko party I know but I really like everything I’ve tried so far. I think the products are well priced, excellent quality and I think they do packaging both exterior and interior, exceptionally well. They make products that look exciting and enticing.
Step forward the Neon Glow Light Effect Serum (£13.90) from the current Dark Heroine collection. This limited edition product comes in a very glamorous box and inside is quite the pretty thing.
My husband laughed when I was showing him this because all I could manage to blurt out was “It looks like science!!!!”.
Okay so I thought this was just primer the give you glow but apparently there’s more to this. Essentially what we have though is a clear gel, the gel promises to hydrate and smooth whilst the helix suspended in the clear gel contains the brightening reflective pearl particles. Combined the two should hydrate and give you that glow but if that’s not enough they’ve bunged some anti ageing ingredients into the mix too.
When you pump the bottle the the two parts of the serum combine to give you this…
Once blended out on the skin it is a little on the shimmery side, but magic happens when you put your foundation on top. It masks the shimmery aspect leaving only the glow and it’s really rather lovely. It is not a primer, in that it won’t mask your pores or promise to help your make up stay put longer, but that said it makes a lovely smooth base for your foundation.
A really nice product. I’m not sure it’d work too well if you were to wear a heavy foundation such as Double Wear but for anything light or medium coverage, this will add some nice glow to your skin. Neon is a bit of a misnomer though, but that’s a good thing. No one should look like a human disco ball!
The Kiko Neon Glow Light Effect Serum is £13.90 and is available from the Kiko website.
