As budget brands go, KIKO is one that I’ve always quite liked. A few weeks back I tried my first lipstick from them, and today I’m trying out my second in this lovely rich, rose shade.
I’ve become such a big fan of rose shade lipsticks, but apart from loving the shade, the pigment is so good. It is rich with full coverage, very blendable with great colour pay off, and a little goes quite a long way.
The formula is very creamy and has a gorgeous vanilla scent, similar to the scent that Charlotte Tilbury matte lipsticks, and I absolutely love it. It kept my lips smooth and hydrated all day, and they felt very soft throughout.
I don’t often talk about packaging unless it seriously impresses me, but this one definitely does. The bullet shape is very sleek with a silver metallic finish, and the gold button at the top releases the lipstick from the bullet to open.
The best thing about KIKO lipstick is the super affordable price point which allows you to splurge without breaking the bank. But also, the quality of product you get for your money is really very good.
