The Italian makeup company, established and founded in 1997 by Antonio Percassi, (a former footballer and entrepreneur who is the president of Odissea Srl – the company who owns KIKO) is celebrating its 20th anniversary by releasing seven collections in 2017 – and here’s what to expect!
The first collection, which launched in March, was the Less Is Better collection created in partnership with the designers of award winning SuperDuper Handmade Hats. The limited edition collection focused on the ‘no makeup make-up’ trend while the packaging boasted light sea blues and pastal pinks.
The collection included highlighters, matte lipsticks, eye shadow pallets, single eye shadows and a cream blush all in very neutral shades.

The second collection in April was the Tropic Heat collection created by the founders of Leitmotiv, Juan Caro and Fabio Sasso.
The designers’ vibrant style is visible in the products’ floral and fruity theme, boasting hot summer days by the pool.
The collection included a setting spray in three different scents, liquid eye liners in neon, a lip and cheek tint, a dewy stick and cream highlighters.

Here are all the other upcoming collections and my prediction for what they might include:
Active Flou, coming May 2017 – I predict this will be an active or sports range with long wearing makeup – I’m thinking long wearing liners and lipsticks, contour kit, and maybe a sports bag.
Mini Divas, coming June 2017 – Dives definitely brings to mind ‘party’ and when makeup does party is normally always glitter, but for summer, I’m not too sure.
Asian Touch, coming September 2017 – I think this collection will include warm matte tones and fingers crossed for a warm matte eye shadow palette.
Candy Split, coming October 2017 – Please be candy scented; you know how much everyone loves the vanilla smell of MAC lipsticks. They may go bright with candy apple reds or tone it down to more bubblegum pinks and there are likely to throw in some lip glosses in the collection too.
Into The Dark, coming November 2017 – This is just shouting ‘smoky eye’ to me! Dark lipsticks, hopefully a smoky palette and maybe even some KIKO false lashes.
