Beauty Haul: KIKO MILANO Lipsticks


I am totally going out on a limb here and NOT going to write about Black Friday because to be honest, I don’t think I can bear reading another blog post about all the amazing deals we should take advantage of. We get it, it’s Black Friday but how much stuff do you actually NEED? I can understand buying a few things but spending like there is no tomorrow sounds a bit ridic to me. 

Anywho, let’s get down to why we are here. I recently popped into a KIKO store and decide to peruse around the lipstick section as I have cleared out my make-up stash because believe it or not, lipstick does have an expiring date. Change in colour, texture or smell are all big warning signs that your lipstick has expired so I checked all of mine and quite a few simply had to be tossed. Throwing out make-up hurts but it also meant I could go out and buy a few replacements. I did think about popping into MAC but every time I step into a store I manage to get the worst (or no) customer service so I chose KIKO instead. They are cheaper, still amazing quality and the girl was very patient with me whilst I picked out the following shades.



Luminous Chrome Metallic Lipstick 714 Violet | £4.80

As suggested by its name, this collection aims to give a metallic finish for full coloured lips with shimmery brightness. Violet is a vivid intense purple colour with silver micro glitters in it. Its texture is very creamy and thus, incredibly comfortable to wear. As with any other creamy textured lipstick, this isn’t as long lasting as a matte lipstick would be, but I much prefer sheer lippies for the winter as my dry lips don’t suffer as bad. This is enriched with K2 Repulp (whatever that is) which according to Google assists in stimulating the production of Hyaluronic acid, keeping the moisture level of the lips ideal and increasing their fullness, not that I need any help in that department. Despite being a wearable shade I know it’s not for everyone, but the collection is quite contemporary and I'm sure that for less than a fiver you are bound to find a shade you will love.

Glossy Dream Sheer Lipstick 205 Wine£6.20

Another sheer lippie, see a pattern here? I confess that I was drawn to this due to its packaging, don’t judge me because I know you guys do the exact same thing. The bullet looks gorgeous and despite having a few other plum shades in my stash, I wanted something softer for winter that could be worn to work for example where I can’t really rock a bold wine matte lipstick because of weird looks I will get from people. This is the perfect very sheer wine shade; moisturising and easy to wear are amongst its qualities and thus by far my favourite purchase on this haul. 

Rebel Romantic Intensely Lavish Lipstick 06 Melodious Wine | £4.80

Again amazing packaging, who doesn't love a bit of gold?! A deep burgundy shade screams fall and that is exactly what I decided I needed when picking this up right at the till when I was about to pay for my other lipsticks. The packaging is lush, with a magnetic close lid and despite being a rather creamy bullet, the colour pay -off is gorgeous with a slight sheen finish. Pigmentation is noticeable from the first swipe; the colour is fairly long wearing (5 hours before re-application is needed) and it does not settle into fine lines. I remember something about these being limited edition so if you like the look of this or the other shades make sure you hurry.

Gossamer Emotion Creamy Lipstick 110 Wine | £6.20

I know what you are thinking, another Wine shade and my friends, that is exactly right. I loved number 2 so much that I wanted a similar colour but with a brighter and bolder finish and this is the perfect wine-pearly burgundy colour. This is a lot more pigmented than the Glossy Dream and despite not being in the slightest matte; I find it to be quite a good dupe for MAC’s Rebel as well (which has been on my wishlist forever) but for a fraction of the price, this was a sweet deal to pass. To some, these wine shades I picked up may look completely similar but they are really not. 

Right to Left: 714 Violet, 205 Wine, 06 Melodious Wine and 110 Wine.
Have you recently picked up any new shades that I should know about? Let me know below!
Happy Friday beauties and I hope you all have a nice weekend ahead!

  1. Yes, finally someone shares my views on Black Friday. I mean, I might get it if you buy electronics, but what`s the big fuss when you buy a lipstick 2£ cheaper than the original price? Anyways, now that you mentioned it, maybe I should check my lipsticks as well..I think some are about 4-5 years old:)) hoarder alert! Aaaand, you`ll totally love these, KIKO lipsticks are simply amazing!

  9. OMG, you aren't kidding about Black Friday, I have stayed away from reading anymore posts on the matter, I mean enough already! LOL! Kiko ships to US but not Canada as I know, for some stupid reasons we always get left out. Great haul, Pam and I adore all the shades!

  25. I completely agree with you about Black Friday! Then before you know it you've spent more than you ever would if there wasn't any deals on - kind of defeats the object lol. I just bought a couple of Christmas presents and myself a coat of course haha, but that was all. Also I love the shade 205 Wine, it looks so smooth and glossy (well they all do). I'll have to check these out as 2 Kiko stores have just opened near me.

  31. I went to KIKO yesterday, and although I agree with you on the whole Black Friday topic, KIKO had a buy 3, get 3 free offer, so I definitely took advantage of that! I got a few Christmas presents and two lipsticks for myself. The Smart lipsticks are so good, I love the shades and they are only £3.90! The shades you got are pretty, I like the look of 110 especially x

  33. Hahah yeah, I totally get the Black Friday thing! I only picked up one thing from the sales so I'm pretty proud of myself. I guess the thing with MAC is that the sales associates are busy tending to other customers, and they tend to always be helping someone too! The finishes on these lipsticks look amazing, like the kind that'll give you a super juicy pout.

  46. Actually, my favourite red lipstick is by Kiko. The only thing that annoys me about it is that it is so matte that you really can't go wrong with it becayse it'll mess everything up and you have barely no way to fix it.

    But it's a beautiful tone that I wear almost every week. I can see why you love these so much. I'll have to drop by the nearest store and check them out on me.
