Makeup Review: Kiko Make Up Milano Skin Evolution Foundation In 101 Ivory.

So on this post I'll be reviewing Kiko's Skin Evolution Foundation and how often I wear it. These are 100% my own honest opinions and criticisms about this product. I don't often see Kiko being reviewed so I think it's quite nice to review something different. I have to say I wasn't impressed at first with this product but as I've begun to use it more and more in my routine, I've grown to like it.

It is is great for all skin types, available in 18 shades, making it suitable for all complexion types and skin colours. 

My chosen shade is Ivory 101 as I am pretty pale and I have to say it does the job pretty well despite there being some yellow undertones. It's a nice liquid foundation that has a medium-full coverage with an almost matte finish. It is pretty creamy and thick which can make it tricky to blend but it does sink into the skin well enough to my standards. I use about two layers of it and I have to say, the coverage is pretty good and feels fairly light. I have some dry patches on my face and this foundation doesn't cling to those places like other foundations do. It creates quite a nice natural look for me and has none of the 'caked-on' business.

The advertisement says it lasts up to 10 hours and I have to disagree. I use this foundation for daytime and use my L'Oréal's True Match for nights out (which I also reviewed if you want to check that out as well!) and I have to say Kiko's foundation does wear off after a few hours, definitely not a 10 hour long wear. But nevertheless, it does do the job fairly well if you're not planning to be out for long. There is some sort of scent to it but that fades after a little while so I can't fault it for that too much.

I like the overall look of the bottle, it looks very professional yet simple in black. Problem is, and I don't know if it's because mine is faulty from ordering online, but the pump doesn't.. well pump properly as it doesn't push the product out properly leaving me to pump it at least 4 to 5 times! Thankfully it has a hypoallergenic formula to prevent allergic reactions (I don't need anymore spots, thankyou!), no parabens and has sun protection factor 10 to protect you
Overall, after quite a few tries, I have finally come to like the product even though I'm not a huge fan of the thick, creaminess of the product. However, it is acceptable and nice to wear during the day.
You can buy it from Kiko's online store for £12.90
