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?
