All of KIKO's new collections are to die for. Whatever they release, it's hardly every uninteresting or uninspiring. This time around, they've managed to introduce something young, modern and quite rock-chic like named 'Generation Next'. Although the shades are wearable, they've tried to keep the textures futuristic and punky by including a cushion system in their CC compact and giving their cool touch eye shadow a similar wet look, gel texture effect.
The Crystal Eye Liners in particular are uber cool! They come with a lovely velvety formula and the finish is almost like a wet look, glitter-shimmer concoction. I personally am not a fan of shimmer eye liners but this is something else with it's edgy appeal and such gorgeous shades. Perfect to flaunt during London Fashion Week. The Frosted Look Lipstick isn't as frosty as you'd think and is actually quite wearable and feminine. Must-have for spring-summer, especially as it's super pigmented and full value for money. The Cool Touch Eye shadows are easy to apply even with fingers and would work quite well for a quick pool-side look in the summer, topped with oodles of mascara or a graphic liner. The Mosaic Highlighter is too pretty to use and acts as a lovely colour correcting, all over finishing powder for the skin, with a bit of a radiant finish. Overall, the collection is just perfect for Spring and I cannot wait to start using it all come sunshine.
