When we were in Paris, the shopping centre beside out apartment had a Kiko store in it. Having heard a lot about Kiko recently on blogs and youtube, I couldn't resist having a look around and I was incredibly impressed with what I found.
The thing I noticed first was that the prices were so reasonable. This lipstick was €3.90, an unbelievable price for any lipstick. I wanted to try a few things since we don't have Kiko here in Ireland yet and I never like buying make up online unless I've had the chance to look at it in person first. I knew I wanted a lipstick and I had my eye on a red one at first but it was sold out and I'm so glad it was because I then spotted this beauty (914- Amaranth) which immediately reminded me of Rebel by MAC, a lipstick I've wanted the past couple of years.
On the Kiko site, these are described as a rich nourishing lipstick with full colour and total comfort and I fully agree with that. The texture reminds of the Estée Lauder Crystal lipsticks, the formula is thinner than that of the Revlon Super Lustrous lipsticks. They come in boxed outer packaging which I thought was an unusual addition to such an inexpensive lipstick. The packaging itself is simple, classic, practical black packaging and the scent is a lovely vanilla scent similar to MAC lipsticks.
I can't fault this lipstick. I got a couple of other things from Kiko that I will review soon. I'm really impressed with Kiko as a brand so far and I hope they make their way over to Ireland soon as I think they could do really well here.
Have you tried anything from Kiko yet?
