Kiko is a brand that I’ve never really looked into, as I mentioned in a previous haul. I’m not too sure how easily available Kiko is, but I have to shop online as there isn’t a store near me.
Let’s get into the Kiko 404 Rosy Biscuit Lipstick Review!
Rosy Biscuit is a warm peachy nude with some brown tones. It’s a beautiful nude that has quickly become a day-to-day shade for me. It’s not the most exciting shade, but rather a classic nude that I love a lot.
This lipstick is incredibly pigmented with full colour being built up with two swipes. Even though it’s pigmented and creamy it still builds really nicely and doesn’t feel heavy after a few layers.
There is a scent to these lipsticks and to me it has the same Vanilla scent as MAC lipsticks. It’s not a strong scent, but it is there. I personally love it, and think it’s good for an affordable lipstick.
This is a creamy lipstick, so if you’re still loving the matte trend then this will not be for you. It glides on easily without tugging, and due to the pigment it’s a quick process. I for one love the creamy finish, as it feels nourishing on the lips instead of dry like some matte lipstick. It never dries out my lips, which is why it’s great for day-to-day.
The Lasting Power
The lasting power isn’t brilliant due to the creamy finish. I know I’ve been raving about the comfortable finish, but due to that it doesn’t last long. Where as matte lipstick can last for the majority of the day, a creamy one cannot. I can get around four hours of wear from this, but it comes off easily when eating and drinking. Reapplying isn’t really an issue, especially as it is so easy to apply.
The packaging is a simple black tube with Kiko Milano printed on the side. I love the simple packaging and how the sticker has the shade on the bottom. The only thing I don’t like is how the name isn’t apparent anywhere. This could be due to translations if it was originally Italian. I have no idea; that was just a reach. The number is there, but not the name, which can get a little confusing, when you’re trying to talk about them online.
This lipstick retails for £3.99, and I think that is great value for money. With it costing that much I’m not too bothered about the lasting power. It seems like a typical creamy lipstick, and it’s a good price.
According to the website there are 36 shades so there should be a colour for everyone. I’m talking like this is a foundation, but I always love a wide variety of lip colours to pick from.
Here is an unedited photo of the swatch. The only edit is the background being lightened, in order for you to see the true colour.
Overall I really love this lipstick, and I may have just placed another Kiko order…
