Kiko Milano Asian Touch Collection


To celebrate the milestone of 20 years Kiko Milano are collaborating with emerging designers selected by Vogue Talents. There are to be seven limited edition capsule collections. The Asian Touch collection by Isa Arfen, a London based womenswear brand, is the fifth in the series.

About the Collection

Created by Serafina Sama, a young designer from fashion brand Isa Arfen, the collection evokes Eastern culture, offering high-definition makeup products with a focus on fiery red lips and eyes accentuated by eyeliner – the perfect look for a metropolitan geisha. The collection is topped off with super defined eyebrows and a glowing complexion, which can be yours with the perfecting mask made from 100% natural fabric extracted from bamboo.

I have some of the key pieces from this collection to share with you today.

The first thing that struck me about the items was the packaging. It is simple in design, yet the clever little details make it beautiful and elegant.

Kiko Milano Asian Touch Holographic Eyeshadow Duo Palette - Limited Edition - Signature Brown - £11.90

The eyeshadow duo contains two shades one being full coverage and the other a duo chrome, holographic shade. The holographic eyeshadow can be used alone or on top of the full coverage brown shade.

The duo chrome really steals the show for me out of the two. It looks white in the pan, but shifts to a stunning hot pink. The shadows are really creamy making them easy to blend. I absolutely love the duo chrome on top of the brown shade, it makes the hot pink pop.

Kiko Milan Asian Touch Matte Liquid Lipstick - Limited Edition - £7.90

These are a ultra-matte liquid lipstick with super intense colour which provides full coverage and easy yet precise application. I have the shades 01 Plushy Red and 02 Silky Burgundy. There is also a shade 03 Velvety Black in the collection.

These certainly live up to expectations when they say full coverage. I was particularly impressed with the burgundy shade which is perfect for autumn.
