Have you managed to catch your breath after Christmas yet? It feels like this festive season is going by in a bit of a blur, but I’ve loved every minute of it. All the Christmas parties and evenings out have been a great excuse to get some glitter out, and I’ve also managed to give Kiko’s new Creamy Stylo Lipsticks a good run!
Part of the brand’s 2.0 collection, the Creamy Stylo Lipsticks are the perfect choice if you’re in the market for a new lippie! Available in a choice of 5 shades, including a rather brave grey shade, I’ve been so impressed by the premium-feeling formulas and rich colours. 04 Deep Kiss feels like the perfect Christmas red lip colour. A rich, deep burgundy, it feels like such a premium choice! Applied straight from the bullet, the formula is incredibly soft and creamy, and the colour is perfectly opaque. The lasting power of the shade is equally impressive – I got nearly three hours of wear before I needed to touch up, and I’m obsessed with the satin finish.
For day wear, I’ve been heavily relying on 01 Innovative Nude. It’s a perfect dusky pink with a flattering peach undertone. Unlike some neutrals I’ve tried previously, this one doesn’t leave lips looking chalky, instead, it’s incredibly flattering. Since it’s a real your-lips-but-better shade, its a great option if you’re after that natural look. I like a little patted into my lips for a subtle daytime look.
It’s also a great lipstick choice to balance out a more dramatic eye look. The wear-time again is great. I get about two hours per application – and touching up isn’t an issue when your lipstick looks as good as this one does! Like the whole 2.0 collection – the lipstick’s packaging looks like shagreen, and the navy colour feels incredibly chic.
As if the lipsticks couldn’t get any better, they’re currently half price here, for a tiny £4.90 each
