I first tried one of these smart fusion lipsticks from Kiko a few weeks back, and I really loved the moisturising, creamy feel that it gave to my lips. The colour pay off and formula was very nice, so today I decided to try a second shade from the range in a rich raspberry colour.
Though the name of this shade is Raspberry, when I first opened it, it looked very much like a cherry or deep red shade so I was a little dubious. However, as soon I applied it, the raspberrry shade came through and I really loved the colour pay off I got with it.
The formula is very creamy like I mentioned above, and it has a gorgeous vanilla scent that made me like it even more. The creaminess meant it was very easy to apply and blend, and a little goes a long way too.
For such a creamy lipstick, it does have a slight sheer finish, and is probably best described as a satin finish more than anything else. Because of its shine element, I didn’t think the staying power would be amazing, but it actually was pretty good considering.
As pink shades go, raspberry is definitely my favourite pink, and I really liked how this one looked on. For me, Kiko is one of the better budget brands , and these lipsticks are just further proof of that. It’s just a shame there are no Kiko shops here in Ireland!
