REVIEW & SWATCHES OF KIKO MILANO HIGHLIGHTERS AND LIPSTICKS



It has been a long time that these pictures were waiting to be up on my blog from KIKO MILANO. Now, this is one brand which I think comes at an affordable price when it comes about comparing their regular products and limited edition products of high-end brands.

This brand can easily compete with MAC.  So, today I am up with swatches of my one of favorite highlighter along with a miracle product(3in1 product) and with two new lipsticks that I picked recently.





So let's start with the highlighter. The highlighter is from VALENTINE COLLECTION OF 2019. It is pretty dupeable one but the packaging and shape of the highlighter look so tempting that I grabbed it in Valentine.


The dupe of this highlighter is already mentioned in my DUPE LIST HIGHLIGHTER POST here 







  
SMART RADIANCE CREAM 3 IN 1:-
This is actually a primer come moisturizer come highlighter. A perfect cream highlighter for winter. One can use it mixed with foundation or as a highlighter on cheeks. It gives a subtle glow which looks awesome with daily makeup.

Price:- Rs.1750/-
Available:- In 2 shades. I pick shade 03 GLOWING ROSE.






KIKO MILANO VELVET PASSION LIPSTICKS:-

Moving on to the lipsticks. The two lipsticks that I picked are from their KIKO MILANO VELVET PASSION LIPSTICK range. These lipsticks are from a regular range of lipsticks of KIKO MILANO.

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 the store here



Packaging:-

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 a little unusual. The lipstick comes out in a twist up the pattern (who don't know that?...silly me...). The embossing of the initials of the brand "KIKO" on the lipstick made it look really classy and royal.

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. 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 comforting matte lipstick that transfers a bit in your glass or cups while drinking drinks.

The staying power of lipsticks is 5 hours with a little bit of transfer. 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 hydrate your lips either moisturize 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. Moreover, it is not true matte but a comfort matte lipstick that I can happily wear in winter too.



So that's all for today. See you in my next post.
Love Sammy :*
