Kiko Lipstick – Hit A Miss


I actually bought these lipsticks back in January during our little anniversary break to London and it’s taken me this long to post about them.. one of them has been sitting in the packaging waiting to be photographed for all those months so you’d think I’d be glad to get it in to circulation but that’s the dud of the pair. They’re two very different formulas, one is creamy and glossy and the other is..well it’s just rubbish. It’s supposed to be matte but it just comes off horribly on the lips and I’m sure it’s not just me. You have to really work at it to get an opaque looking finish, if you don’t it looks patchy but if you do it doesn’t layer well.. it’s strange. Anyway.. I’ll let the swatched speak for themselves..


Smart Lipstick (matte) 11 Candy Pink – £2.50 here



Ultra Glossy Stylo 813 Apple Blossoms – £4.90 here

The Ultra Glossy Stylo range is more expensive but I will definitely pick up another next time I’m near a Kiko store but the matte “Smart” Lipstick did not do it for me at all so that will be relegated to my ‘disappointing products bin’.

Have you tried anything from Kiko?

    I have one from both these ranges. I really like the glossy one, but it still patches cus I have rubbish lips (don’t really scrub them) and I’m not a fan of the smell. the matte one is horrible. I only use it in combination with something just to use it. and I have another one from a different range but it doesn’t say on the label, so I don’t know which, but I love it, creamy, doesn’t patch.

    from Kiko I also tried 2 of their mascaras, the one I have now is Luxurious Lashes extra volume brush mascara. it’s fabulous. big brush & doesn’t clump unless you put like 3 coats, but you only need one. I love it. (I cried with it on and it stood in place even if it’s not waterproof)
    the other mascara I had was waterproof, the effect was better than the one I have now, different brush, but it wasn’t waterproof at all. I don’t really have oily skin, but that was not pretty, my eyelids had black marks several times a day after I would wipe them. I forgot it’s name though.

    also have a liquid eyeliner Ultimate Pen long wear eyeliner. it really is long wear even in the summer. the only thing that bugs me is that you have to shake it several times when you’re using it. 4 or 5 times until I make a line. other than that, I like it.

    their nail polishes are pretty, I have 2. they dry pretty quick. you can get away with one layer. I don’t know if they have different ranges here. but I love their bottles.

    and finally I have some lip liners & eye liners. the ones I have are pretty creamy, but not too creamy and I like them.

    Love the Glossy Apple Blossoms lipstick. Looks so good on you! Shame about the matte one 🙁
