I am always into three phases when I am buying stuff, like shoe phase, lipstick phase, jewellery phase. Anyone out there like me? But, there are certain things which I love to buy anytime like shoes and blushes. Today’s review will be on KIKO Milano Rebel Bouncy Blush in the shade 04 Passion Red Wine.
Price: GBP 4.90
Blush with a new sensory aspect and a satin matte finish. A lightweight powder combines with a new consistency that’s extra soft, supple and highly blendable for a unique product. Surprisingly velvety and pliable to the touch, the blush goes on evenly and creates a natural matte effect. The formula’s rich pigments provide excellent coverage and a professional-level look. True to the style of the “Rebel Romantic” collection, Rebel Bouncy Blush comes in a case with a fan-shaped design and an internal mirror. Available in four amazing shades:
01 Velvety Peach.
02 Adorable Pink.
03 Treasure Rose.
04 Passion Red Wine.
Dermatologically tested. Non-comedogenic. Paraben free.
My Experience with KIKO Rebel Bouncy Blush 04 Passion Red Wine:
Packaging: The Blush is packed in a gorgeous classy pink case with the details such as the number and the shade name written at the bottom. It is small, compact and easy to carry around. The blush case is packed in a plum coloured cardboard box that bears all the above details and the ingredients list. There is a small but useful mirror inside the blush case. The lid of the case shuts with a click and is steady and will not open on its own.
Shade: This shade is called Passion Red Wine. It is a gorgeous plum shade, which tends to bend over to the house of pinks. It is a colour you will fall in love with, the moment you see it. There are three other shades in this range and this is the one that kind of calls your name out. It is a colour that will complement the Indian skin very beautifully. It might look a tad brighter on the fair skin, though. This is a colour I generally look out when I want to buy blushes. It will give a nice, bright, healthy glow to the cheeks.
Texture and Pigmentation: The Texture I must say is a total WOW. Now it is not powdery, but at the same time, it is not very creamy. I would say it is a perfect blend of powder and cream which gives it a consistency that is soft, supple and blendable. You can notice it in my pictures that, it looks like a sponge when seen from close. It is not too soft in the pan and neither is it too hard. Just the perfect consistency. The Pigmentation is super duper strong. One has to be careful as even a small amount is enough to get that blush effect. And since it is super blendable its intensity can be worked on, as needed. There are no shimmers in it and when applied it gives a soft velvety matte finish. In no way is this blush chalky or dry. When blending with my fingers, I noticed it gave me better results. I could not get really get good results when I used a blush brush as I needed more product to get the desired intensity. I have not tried it using a sponge. I just loved the way I could use my fingers around to build the intensity.
Lasting power: The blush lasted for around 4-5 hours. While fading away, you can notice a pretty pinkish red tint on the cheeks. The tint remained really long until I used a makeup remover to remove it. Overall, I am in love with this blush.

Will I Recommend/ Repurchase KIKO Milano Rebel Bouncy Blush – 04 Passion Red Wine?
Yes to both. I have previously used three shades from KIKO normal blushes which I have already reviewed here on IMBB and I was totally impressed with them. This one is going to be my new favourite. You must try at least one of these if you can get your hands on them.
