Kiko Milano Smart Fusion Lipstick

Hello beauties, I recently went to visit the Kiko Milano store in Bristol to pick up their new Gold Waves highlighter. (I’ve recently reviewed it here) I also picked up five of their Smart Fusion lipsticks as I was in the market for some glossy/sheen lipsticks for the spring/summer, most of my lipsticks seem to be matte and I wanted something lighter and more hydrating for my summer looks.

Rich and nourishing lipstick.

The creamy, enveloping texture leaves the lips feeling wonderful and incredibly soft for a long time.

The lipstick glides on easily and the colour is revealed immediately.

Available in 36 striking colours. Medium to full coverage.

Dermatologically tested.

Packaging

Each lipstick is housed in a very basic looking black plastic tube with the Kiko logo printed on the front. I really like the simple packaging, sure it’s not very eye catching but it is very sleek and sturdy. The lipstick itself comes in a standard twist up bullet and has a pretty KK engraved into the lipstick which I think is snazzy.

Formula

When I swatched these in store I was immediately sold at how creamy the texture of these lipsticks were on my arm. They’re super soft, extremely easy to apply to the lip and have that gorgeous soft sheen finish I was after. Perfect for that soft hydrated ‘juicy’ kind of lip look.

Wearability

I didn’t expect these lipsticks to have a great staying power as they don’t have a matte finish and I was correct as they fade fairly easily after eating and drinking. That’s not a problem for me however as they are so light and creamy that you can just keep replying without it looking flakey or dry as the lips look so hydrated.

Swatches

I’ve included some arm swatches as well as lip swatches of the shades on. Each shade had great pigmentation for being sheer lipstick, the only shade that didn’t perform like I’d hoped was the violet/purple shade ‘435’ which was a little on the patchy side.

Shades- ‘404, 410, 414, 413, 425’

Price

Each lipstick costs £3.90 which I think is a absolute steal, a lipstick for under £5? Yes please. My only regret is that I didn’t pick up a few more shades.

What is your favourite shade out of these five? Let me know in the comments below!

Thanks for reading

  11. I have to say all these shades look fabulous. Of course I love the purple color which looks like it has that chrom…oh crap I forget the word, but it has a deeper color in the middle of the lips while the outer edges are a bit lighter looking. Anyways…excellent post!! ♥

    1. Thank you lovely! Unfortunately that effect is because it is patchy! But it’s a beautiful colour anyway! 😘

    oh, these look really nice actually. I have never been lucky when it comes to Kiko though…I got like 30 products from them in recent months and have been disappointed by almost every single one of them.. the same has been happening since I discovered the brand in 2015. Just my luck I guess. Will try again and make sure to add at least one of these to my list. They do look really pretty on you.

    1. Oh dear! That’s such a shame, I hope you find some that work for you! I haven’t dabbled enough with this brand to find many products that don’t work for me! I wouldn’t recommend getting the purple shade shown here because it was patchy! Thanks for reading lovely 😘
