My Current Favourite Lip Combo

Kiko lipstick review


It's no secret that I love a good nude lipstick and I'm forever on the hunt for the perfect nude lipstick and liner combination. Recently I've been reaching for the same lip products and I thought it would be rude not to share the details with you.

My cousin picked up the Kiko Gossamer Emotion creamy lipstick in the shade 102 along with a lip liner called 303 in Spain. I knew the moment I got a whiff of their gorgeous vanilla scent (even better than Mac in my opinion!) that I would become obsessed! I had never tried any Kiko products before my sister brought back an eyeshadow also from Spain but it was love at first swatch. I'll leave all the details of the eyshadow for another post (stay tuned for that one!).

Shades & pigmentation:

I would describe the lipstick shade as a muted nude pink. The swathces aren't great as the lighting was dreadful today and I'm a little behind with the ol' blog scheduling ;-) As you can see from the swatches it's a little bit lighter than the liner but the two paired together blend in really nicely, giving a fuller appearance to my lips. The lip liner is a deeper rosy nude  The pigmentation of both are incredible! I only apply one layer and I get a lovely colour pay off which you can see in the picture below.

Texture, finish & lasting power:

The texture of the lipstick is very creamy and smooth to apply, it doesn't drag the lips even when they're at their driest. It's comfortable to wear and they're surprisingly long lasting. The liner quite literally doesn't budge - whenever I swatch it, it takes days to come off! It does fade after a good few hours but it still remains visible, even after lots of eating and drinking! The lipstick lasts about 4 hours - It remains if I just have tea or water but whenever I eat it does come off slightly so I like to reapply it then. But I don't know a lipstick that doesn't come off when you eat so it's all good!
I would describe the finish of the lipstick as satin, it's very similar to Mac's satin lipsticks.

Where to buy Kiko products?

Unfortunately you can't get Kiko products anywhere in Ireland but you can order online!

You can get the liner here and the lipstick here.

The lipliner is €4.90 & the lipstick is €8.90

What's your favourite lip combo?
