Simply Lippy Challenge Day 257 | KIKO Smart Fusion Lipstick in Shade 428, Grape

It’s been quite a while since I’ve worn any KIKO makeup products, but as budget brands go, this is one of the better ones out there. I’ve always been partial to their powder highlighters but until now, hadn’t tried any of their lipsticks.


Luckily for me, my mum was away for a few days and picked up a few for me to put to the test and the first one I’m trying out today is this gorgeous red toned grape shade.


As with all my new lipstick choices for my challenge, I only wear each lipstick for one day so it’s hard to give a thorough, full review. So my posts are always more ‘first impressions’ than anything else and my first impressions of this are very good.


The pigment is lovely and very true to the colour you expect it to be. It has a sheer to cream finish which gives a medium coverage to the lips, and great colour pay off too.


One thing I really liked about wearing it was the super moisturising element; it reminded me very much of Catrice in this sense. The formula was very creamy giving it a balm like feel, and because of that my lips felt so soft all day.


The finish was maybe just a little sheer in coverage for me; when it comes to rich shades like this I love a full, opaque coverage on my lips. In saying that however, I was very impressed with it overall given the super cheap price point and look forward to trying out the other shades I have.
