Kiko Cosmetics Daring Game Face Brush & Golden Game Sculpting Bronzer in Radiant Honey

Kiko's latest limited edition collection is entitled Daring Game, and to me it's basically Bond-Girl-in-Casino-Royale in a box.  It's a fairly hefty collection, with 11 products in a wide variety of shades, from eyeshadow to blush to nail polish to eyeliner.  There's even a face serum in there - weird, but I guess even Bond Girls need a pick me up after a night on the cards.

Anyway - here we have the Daring Game Face Brush, and the Golden Game Sculpting Bronzer.  The premise is that the heart shaped, dual-fibre brush helps you to apply the multi-toned bronzer and highlighter easily, for a sculpted look in a jiffy.

The bronzer/highlighter palette is encased in white plastic embossed with a Rorschach-inkblot like design.  I have no idea what it is.  If you do, let me know.  Despite the embossing, the palette feels very light and a bit flimsy in the hand. 

The product itself is also embossed, and contains two distinct pans - one for the highlighter, which is a pale champagne colour in the Radiant Honey colourway, and one for the bronzer, which is a two tone warm beige.

What, don't you apply foundation, lipstick and bronzer on a Sunday, leaving your eyes and brows completely bare?  No? 
I found the bronzer and highlighter duo really, really easy to apply with the brush.  I lined the black side of the brush up against the bronzer, and the white side against the highlighter, and then applied it to my face with the curve of the brush hugging my cheekbone.  Instant sculpting.

I'd be very, very much in love with this product if it wasn't too warm for my skintone - I find that Kiko bronzers tend to be a warmer, more golden tone than my skin can take.  If you're warmer toned, though, this is a very easy, affordable way to master the contour trend with minimal effort - both products are £15.90, which is reasonable for the quality and ease of application.  Find the brush and the palette at Kiko stores or online at their website.

  1. Oooh, the dual brush looks like a great idea! I think the embossing is a fancy swirly version of the clubs symbol on a pack of cards? :)

  2. This looks great, but like you I also wished it was a bit on the cooler or neutral side. Btw Rorschach is a town in Switzerland. But in this case it's the name of the creator of the inkblot test. You will find some more Information here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rorschach_test

  3. The bronzer looks beautiful on you. There are many who prefer the cool toned ones, but those don;t turn out as flattering . This bronzer looks perfectly balanced.

    By the way, I love your hair color.


  4. Looks like the embossing is a stylized leaf and flower patterned club, like the one found on playing cards!

  5. That is so gorgeous! But I fear it'd be too warm for my skintone too.
