KIKO - Luminous Chrome Metallic Lipstick in 705
Recently my sister visited Leeds and saw that there was a KIKO store, so she kindly when and bought me to lipsticks that she thought were pretty. I was left waiting ages to see what she was going to return with. I originally asked for some eyeshadows but she didn't want to get me some in case I didn't like the shade so therefore wasn't wasting money as she doesn't really wear eyeshadows. 

So she picked me up this Luminous Chrome Metallic Lipstick in 705 (Pastel Pink), which cost £6.90 which is well priced compared to MAC lipsticks and considering how pretty the packaging is.

The lipstick: Is really creamy in texture and glides lovely on the lips. It is a lovely pastel pink with a nice shine. It's really moisturising on the lips! I don't love the finish it gives though, it reminds me of a MAC frost finish lipstick. It lasts a good few hours though!

The packaging: Honestly when I first got this lipstick it took me ages to work out how to open it (I didn't even notice the instructions on the box packaging). To get into this lipstick you have to push the top down and then pull it from the bottom, which I kind of like due to lid never really falling off.  The outer packaging aka the grey/silver part is slightly holographic which I think is pretty and is attached to the lipstick lid. The lipstick its self is haha kiko imprinted onto it which I thought was cute. Along with having a super cute metallic pink bottom. This is definitely one of my favourite designed lipsticks. 

I don't know how I feel about the Luminous Chrome Metallic, but I would definitely want to try the Velvet Mat - Satin lipsticks they do or the Luscious Cream lipstick which both have same design packaging to this just different colours. 

What do you guys think? Have you tried any KIKO products? 

see you soon, han x
