Hope you all are very well and enjoying this transition from winters to spring. I love Spring and as soon as it comes, I like my makeup to look fresh , dewy and just very healthy. I keep my matte lipsticks in and take out my creamsheen and satin lipsticks. My nails usually have pastels or some bright fun colours…yeah no more neutrals 😉
Today I want to talk about Kiko Milano smooth temptation – Limited edition lipsticks. Kiko Milano is an Italian drugstore brand which is so under-rated but has so many hidden gems. I did not know about these amazing lipsticks until I got my first parcel from Kiko, Italia. I have tried one of their lip liners (which I love so much) before but I bought it from some other website.
First of all, I love the packaging. It came in black card type box (just like Mac lip liners) and its not conventional lipstick bullet. It is a very sleek and modern stick kind of lipstick. So easy to travel with and looks more like a thick pencil (just like many metallic eye shadow pencil bases). It comes in twist-up form so you need to twist the bullet for the lipstick to come up like you do with the conventional lipsticks.
These lipsticks are very moisturising on the lips, glides effortlessly and are very pigmented. The staying power is 3-4 hours which is quite decent for a drugstore creamsheen lipstick. Even high-end lipsticks of this texture stays almost for same period. These are Dermatologically tested, Non-comedogenic and Paraben free.
I have shades ’04 English Rose’ and ’06 Rosewood’. Both are so beautiful and can be worn every single day. You can see the swatches below. I am sure such shades are liked by so many women. 04 English Rose is more on a peachy side and 06 Rosewood is a tad bit darker and comes more in mauve family.
Price, Quantity & Availability
These lipsticks have 1.2 gms of product and retail for £7.90 and are available from www.kikocosmetics.com or you can buy from any Kiko stores (if you live nearby to any Kiko store). I know, there are very limited Kiko stores in the UK so I ordered these online and it arrived in 8 days from Italy :).
At the moment, these are at discounted price so you can grab these at just £2.30 (yes, you read it right). Have you used these lipsticks before? Let me know in the comments section below 🙂
Lots of love, Akanksha (Ash) <3
