I am always overwhelmed by the range of products that Kiko stores offer and I totally fall in love with their good quality products with such reasonable price tags. This store offers products that closely resemble some of those on the higher brand shelves which I love as I can get the same type of product for a fraction of the price. Recently I have fallen for the whole lip liner craze and matte lips therefore I wouldn't pass the Kiko store without making a purchase. To be very honest, I wanted all the colours and quite alot of the shades in the lip liner ranges were beautiful. However, I have to constrain myself and be good by picking out a couple of standout shades: A nude and a nice wearable pink colour.
[ Automatic precision lip liner in 501 ]
This shade is almost the same as my all time favourite Rimmel 'nude delight' lipstick so I was quick to swatch and pick up from the display stand. Although this is like the general twisty up type pencil, it has a hidden encased mini sharpener which you can remove from the end which is quite handy. This however I can imagine to be a bit messy and I feel that I wouldn't use sharpen it much. The product is really creamy and melts onto my lips. As expected with a lipliner, it was a bit drying but a bit of vaseline on top did the trick. Lasted a fair amount of time (1-2 hours) on my lips before it started peeling away but I do have very dry lips in general so not sure if its the same for everybody.
[ Creamy colour comfort lip liner in 302 ]
When I first laid eyes on these, I instantly thought of the Charlotte Tilbury lipcheats as the packaging is very similar. The array of shades in this range is so lovely that I wanted to pick up all the colours. This is almost identical to my Rimmel 'eastend snob' lip liner as I found out when I swatched it back at home. However, I do find that this one by Kiko is less drying and the formulation is alot nicer to work with. This liner is a bit more drying compared with the automatic lipliner as mentioned above but the colour is so gorgeous that I am willing to compromise and add a more moisturising lipbalm on top to help with it.
If you haven't tried out products by Kiko, I highly recommend you guys to check out the stores and see what goodies there are especially the lipliners which are high quality and with a reasonable price tag.
