Kiko '605' Lipstick Review

A kiko store recently opened up near to my home town and I couldn't wait to pop in and have a look around at the collection. I'm a huge lipstick fan and so that was my first pit stop, and I was not disappointed. I didn't leave empty handed of course!

I was instantly sold by the 605's packaging; silver, gold AND rose gold?! Love, love, love it! The next thing of course that grabbed my attention was the colour. I am a big red lip lover, I adore MAC's Ruby Woo and other variations on the shade red. I wanted a more warm orange toned red and was actually going to buy MAC's Lady Danger, until this little beauty caught my eye- and it was cheaper too! Bonus!

It is a Matte Velvet Lipstick and is therefore very wearable and has excellent longevity. You don't need to worry about it smudging like you do with most reds. I am still on the hunt for a good lip liner to go with it, so if you have any recommendations for an orangey red lip liner then please pass them this way!

The application is lovely and I only needed to apply it in two coats to get a lovely opaque matte finish.

This is the colour pay off when swatched onto the back of my hand and this is how the lipstick looks actually applied to the lips..

I really love how lovely the colour looks against my skin tone, and particularly think it would look good when I have a 'smidge' of fake tan on and a golden bronze eye make-up look. It is the perfect summer red. Very warming to the skin tone.

I give this lipstick a 10/10, the packaging is stunning and easy to clean, the colour pay off is impeccable and the longevity is good too. What more could you ask for in a lipstick really?!

Have you tried any Kiko Products?
