The Remarkable Red Duo

Kiko are a brand which I've heard a fair bit about but have never been able to purchase anything from them until last month, when I went shopping with my best friend in Cribs Causeway. I was extremely excited when I realized that there was a Kiko shop right infront of me. My heart was pounding, my eyes were glowing and my friend was looking at me as if I was insane. After walking around the store a couple of times and swatching multiple items onto the back of my hand, I'd finally chosen the products which I wanted to purchase and that included two products I'm mentioning today.

The two products are Kiko's intensely lavish 03 lip liner and Kiko's intensely lavish 03 lipstick. These two stood out to me, not only because they were half price but because they would work so perfectly together to create a classic red lip, I just couldn't not purchase them. 

Like I said before, I haven't tried any of their make-up before so I didn't know what to expect for the first time when I applied them to my lips but I was amazed to say the least. I lined my lips with the lip liner and I was astonished at how creamy the consistency was whilst the pigmentation was second to none. It didn't slide around when applied onto my lips, meanwhile the longevity was remarkable. Considering the only other lip liners I've tried are by MUA I was pleasantly surprised at the difference between the two. All I can say is that I won't be going back to MUA lip liners for a long time!

From being overjoyed with the results from the lip liner I was even more enthusiastic to try out the matching lipstick. The lipstick had a very creamy consistency, just like the lip liner although when used without the lip liner I did notice that applying it to the lips was hard as it wanted to slide around but with the lip liner there was no problem at all. Throughout the day, I ate and drank and only noticed it started to fade after five hours, which thinking about it is a long time! When the fading began I didn't top it up and overall it lasted a hefty 6 and a half hours. One of the best longevity of lipsticks I own!

If you're thinking about trying Kiko lipsticks and liners then I'd say go for it, you have nothing to lose, they're incredible! Have you tried any of their make-up before? Thanks for reading,
