First of all how pretty is this packaging? I love rose gold and the fact the casing has rose gold on it was the first attraction for me! The rose gold is mixed with a metallic pink with the name of the brand written on the front and the number of the colour written on the bottom. I think the packaging is really simple yet really attractive. I love the way you open the lipstick as well as it is not a simple lift off lid. You need to push the top of the rose gold part downwards and the lipstick then pops out the bottom and to put it back in you just insert the lipstick into the bottom of the casing and pop it up.
I have been looking for a perfect matte brown lipstick and I feel this is the one for me! Kiko do a range of lipsticks so don't feel put off if the matte isn't for you. As you can see I have used this lipstick quite a bit as the top is rounded but that just goes to show how much I love it! When the lipstick is applied it has a creamy texture so it goes on really smoothly but within seconds it dries to a matte finish. Over the December/January period I used this lipstick pretty much every day it is the perfect autumnal colour and goes with everything!
Like I said the shade I used was 603 but they do many more colours if you feel you wouldn't suit a brown or you fancied more of a vibrant colour. The only downside to this lipstick is the fact you do need to reapply the lipstick quite a bit throughout the day unless you use the trick I use. If my lipstick is one that doesn't last I will put on a face primer on my lips first (probably isn't that great for you but im ok so far!) then I apply the lipstick as I normally would, then I get some setting spray, spray it over a tissue or wipe and dab it onto my lips. The lipstick doesn't come off when dabbing with the setting spray and then it lasts all day! (If you would like a review of my primer and setting spray let me know in the comments.)
The lipstick is called "velvet mat- satin lipstick 603" and is £6.90 so isn't too pricey! I would highly recommend this colour if you wanted a matte brown or even if you wanted a different matte lipstick I would highly recommend Kiko. Thank you for reading, let me know in the comments what you would like me to do a review on:) x
