KIKO bronzer cruelty free make up review

I think I may be the last person to have heard about KIKO being cruelty-free, but when I did I thought it was time for a little treat!

I decided to treat myself to a new bronzer and brush for the spring and to replace my old non-cruelty free bronzer. The KIKO bronzer is enriched with moringa seed and cotton flower scent. It is meant to be full coverage with a concealer incorporated into it. Although I love my new bronzer I do not think this is full coverage at all! It's a very light and natural bronzer, just giving light definition to the cheekbones.

I love the compact's design, the colour is beautiful and I like any tactile compacts. This was designed by Ross Lovegrove and I would defiantly say it's a success.
To accompany the bronzer I got the face blush brush as it was on sale and I have never owned a blush brush (shock horror!). This is designed to accentuate cheekbones, blend flawlessly with a perfect finish. The brush has a matte black wood handle, which I personally really like. This is the first time I have really used my own blush brush and it does improve the application. The brush was much softer than I expected for the price and doesn't feel rough or itchy on my skin.

A definite little thumbs up for my treat and first experience of KIKO!

As KIKO sell and manufacture all makeup in the EU it is all cruelty-free, but I'm unsure whether they are vegan. As far as I know, they are not leaping bunny certified or PETA certified, but when I tweeted them they explained that they are cruelty-free. There is a section on the website that explains their policy on animal testing very briefly.

  1. I love Kiko, it's the first cruelty free brand i tried last year when i started my quest of everything cruelty free and even my mum (who is very sceptical about "cheap" beauty products), loves them and has tried almost every skincare they have! I personally recommend their lipsticks, i love them all! Thanks for that review i still haven't tried out bronzers from them, i might now (as i'm very fair, a light bronzer is perfect for me ;) )

  2. I had no idea Kiko were cruelty free either, I remember being so excited when they opened a store in my town. I haven't tried their bronzers yet but I do love the eyeshadows.

    1. Yes they don't seem to publicise it much! I couldn't even find where it said on their website I had to tweet them in the end! I think I may have to try those next then :) xx
