Packaging:

The “Smart Essential Face Palette” by Kiko Milano is a sleek black rectangular box. It is convenient because of its medium size and can slide into a purse or a bag easily. While it contains a mirror, the palette does not carry an applicator with it.

Available Colors:

There are 6 different powders in the “Smart Essential Face Palette” by Kiko. To be more precise, there are 3 blushes, 2 bronzers, and 1 highlighter. There are 3 different palettes in this Kiko “Smart Essential Face Palette”. “The Smart” palettes gradate in intensity of color from light (“Smart- 01”) to deeper tones of the blushes, bronzers, and highlighter (“Smart- 03”).

Tested Palette:

We tested the “Smart- 02” palette which is medium to dark. It has a gradation of pink blushes: from light coral, to a richer pink, and a deep almost earthier maroon. The 2 bronzers gradate from camel to a dirtier brown. The highlighter is a soft gold. While the blushes and bronzers are matte, the highlighter has a metallic shimmery finish.

Effect:

This palette is convenient because the blushes can be interchanged from day to night. For example, during the day, for a more natural look, we used to light coral blush. Using the same palette, we opted for the richer pink and the highlighter for a better-defined night look. The texture of the shades is powdery. However, they are easily applied and don’t need a primer.
The “Smart- 02” palette is too pigmented for a “medium to dark” palette. For example, the deeper earthier maroon blush was too much for fair and medium skin tones. Bu the highlighter was the right amount of pearly gold. The bronzers were also very convenient, the camel can be applied in the winter and the deeper brown in the summer, to accentuate a tan.
After trying this palette, we noticed that the blushes, bronzers, and highlighter have a long tenure. On average they lasted for 4 to 5 hours without needing to be retouched.

Application:

For a subtle fresh look, applying the camel bronzer or the light coral blush is recommended. For a more defined look, consider applying the maroon bronzer or the deeper pink blush. However, if you have fair toned skin, defining your eyes with some eyeshadow and liner is recommended to accompany the medium tones of the blush and bronzer. The highlighter can come in handy during the day or night. As for the darkest blush tone, it is a very daring look that we thought was too much for lighter skinned women,

Price:

This palette is sold for 32.4$ in Lebanon. Net weight is 0.56oz/16g, which is fair compared to its size and the number of face shades in the palette. However, we would have liked for a two-sided applicator brush to be included in the palette.
