      A amazing brand - very highly recommended! :) A***********

      Compact Pressed foundation

      I got this product again from Taormina in Sicily like the other kiko products I have reviewed already. I already had a pressed powder foundation but it was too dark but this one is a really great match for my skin and I just LOVE the kiko brand! But unfortunately they don't have an online store, they only have stores in Germany, Spain and Italy.

      *About the product*
      It comes in, again like the others, the black and white packaging which is really similar to MAC's packaging and it looks really nice and it looks a lot more expensive than it actually was! It comes in a 10g compact.

      The outer case of the actual compact is not plastic like you would think, but it is a kind of rubber (or it feels that way to hold anyway), which is a bit odd. But it makes it easier to grip - so that it is less likely for you to drop it which is good.

      Inside You get a small circle mirror (like on the picture), you get a small foam powder puff thing for applying the powder and you get a small clear plastic protective cover for the powder too.

      *My opinion about the product*
      I really love this foundation - it is the best pressed powder foundation I have ever used! I have this product in the shade 100 and it is just the best match for my skin ever.

      It applies really evenly, smoothy and it covers most of my little blemishes and it almost covers all of my redness. It is a mineral pressed powder and so it does not affect my eczema (but everybody's skin is different) and it does not dry out my skin like some other powders have done in the past.

      It is really lightweight so it does not feel heavy on my skin and it does not even feel like I have any powder on either - but it gives great coverage! It gives amazing coverage! I have just used the excess of what was on the foam applicator on the back of my hand and it actually almost fully covers the dark eyeshadow that I have (as a swatch) on the back of my hand - which is rather amazing!

      It foam applicator is really good too, I don't really use things like this I prefer to just use a brush but this is really good. It is super soft and it applies the product just where I want it evenly, smoothly and really softly.

      It is also super long lasting - lasting for most of the day! Even in the 45 degree heat of kusadasi in Turkey and in all of the other places I visited. It has amazing full coverage but it looks really natural on - it does not look obvious that I have any powder or foundation on!

      I bought it from one of their two stores on Sicily and I payed Euro9.90 which is the most expensive thing I bought from the store and it is a amazing price for a fantastic foundation! It roughly converts to about £8! And it even has KIKO printed on the actual foundation too.

      Conclusions
      Good points
      *Really affordable
      *Amazing full - but natural looking coverage
      *Long lasting coverage
      *Great match for my skin ton - but for this specific powder they only have four shades to chose from I think
      *Cute mac like packaging
      *Light on my skin
      *mineral foundation
      *An amazing brand

      Bad points
      *They don't have an online store

      The best pressed powder foundation ever! I would love to give it more than 5 stars!
