 Hey friends,
I am back again with another product from KIKO MILANO...

When any new brand launch it's first product or store or line of makeup, my first concern is "what's in their lipstick? or do they have lipsticks?"..so when KIKO MILANO launches its first store in India (read the store review here) I decided to check their lipstick along with their eye shadows (reviewed the eyeshadow here and eye pencils here).

KIKO MILANO  has the huge range of lipsticks, from matte to satin and from creamy to glossy. As I am a sucker of matte lipstick so I decided to pick one matte lipstick from their lipstick collection.

I found an amazing fact regarding KIKO MILANO  lipsticks range that most of the lipsticks of KIKO MILANO  are the closest dupe of MAC lipsticks (Girls! can you hear me? ).

The lipstick I bought belongs to KIKO MILANO VELVET PASSION LIPSTICK range in shade 314.

Ahh ! you see this number...well, it is beautiful berry pink kind of shade.

Price:- Rs.1050/- for 3.5g.

Expiry:- 4 years from the year of manufacture.

Availability:- KIKO MILANO STORE IN DLF MALL OF INDIA  (read the review of store here)

Okay, don't scared hearing the price of the lipstick, as KIKO MILANO  has a huge range of lipsticks starting from Rs.390/- (approx.) to Rs 1050/- (approx.) quite affordable right? ;)



The lipstick comes in the beautiful silver-gray metal and rose gold combo color case. It shut down with a magnetic closure, thus it is secure in your travel bag. The shape of the tip of the bullet is square which is little unusual. The lipstick comes out in a twist up the pattern (who don't know that?...silly me...). The emboss of the initials of the brand "KIKO" on the lipstick made it look really classy and royal.

My experience:- 


KIKO MILANO VELVET PASSION LIPSTICK is the matte range of lipstick from the brand KIKO MILANO. It is the most comfort matte lipsticks that I pick after a long time (right now I am in a liquid matte lipstick mode). I picked the shade 314, which is a beautiful berry tone pink that will suit everyone. The shade is a versatile one. It belongs to those bright lipsticks category which instantly brightens up your complexion.

Coming to the pigmentation part, the lipstick has awesome pigmentation as one swipe is enough to get the actual color. The bullet of the lipstick has a square tip which creates a little bit problem while applying the lipstick on my thin lips, so I prefer using lip brushes to apply the lipstick on my lip line edges. The lipstick glides super smoothly and the texture is satin which turns into semi -matte after some time of application of lipstick. The lipstick doesn't turn out true matte which causes drying of lips. It is comfort matte lipstick that transfers a bit in your glass or cups while drinking drinks.

The staying power of lipsticks is 5 hours with the little bit of transferring. It fades evenly and leaves an even stain on your lips that can be carried one more hour in that way but I personally prefer to re-touch after the meal. It doesn't hydrates your lips neither moisturizes your lips but stays nicely on your lips without making your lips dry. The lipstick is actually perfect matte for dry lips people as it turns out comfortable matte on them. 

I applied the lipstick without lip liner for testing and found that it slightly smudge after a meal, so the proper lining of lips is suggested before the application of lipstick.

Over in all, I quite like the lipstick, they are pocket-friendly compare to all international brands that we have in India. The bullet still stays intact after it falls from my hand(i am a careless person...I admit) and moreover it is not true matte but a comfort matte lipstick that I can happily wear in winter too. 


There is nothing exact dupe of this shade, but still, I found it is quite similar or you can say this shade belong to the family of MAC FLAT OUT FABULOUS, MAC HAVE YOUR CAKE, MAC TAILORED TO TEASE.  



As winter is approaching so I guess I need few more comfort matte lipstick in my stash and I am definitely going to grab a red(which I  was eyeing last time I was in the store) and a neutral shade next time I visit the store.
