Beauty | Intensely Lavish Lips With Kiko Milano

I've been favoring a nude lip recently, but when I saw the intense pop of colour from Kiko Milanos' Intensely Lavish Lipstick in the shade 05 I knew I had to be brave & embrace it. I've had this sitting in my collection for a little while now along with a couple of Intensely Lavish Lip Pencils (shades 04 & 05) - I actually won two of them in a blog competition & the other I picked up in the sales, so I've done exceedingly well so far with this brand & I couldn't wait to pop the intense pink/red shade onto my lips.

Top - Intensely Lavish Lip Liner (04)
Middle - Intensely Lavish Lip Liner (05)
Bottom - Intensely Lavish Lipstick (05)

The colour pay off, of all three Kiko products is amazing! That intense pop of colour brightens & completely transforms an everyday makeup look into one that's much more fun & very much Spring/Summer ready! Both lip liner shades work amazingly well with with lipstick however I do prefer shade 05 as it has a darker more vampy undertone too it & I think this works well with my skin tone.
The formula of the lipstick is probably the creamiest I've ever used! It feels really lovely on, however I did find it quite difficult to apply just due to how slippy the formula is. It took quite a precise hand to complete the look but the colour pay off is worth it! The lip liners work amazingly well & apply perfectly, they're a complete dream.
As much as I love the colour of the Kiko Lipstick, I'm half tempted to just wear the liners on their own - Especially as the longevity of the lipstick isn't that great. Maybe it's due to the formula, but as soon as I ate or drank, the colour just wiped off & I had to reapply. Completely contrasting the lippie, the lip liners won't budge! Even when it came to removing my makeup before bed I had to be really rigorous with my cleanser to remove the colour.
Packaging wise, it's rose gold... It's amazing... Duh! I don't think this army of rose gold packaging we're seeing everywhere is going to stop any time soon... And I'm pretty sure I'm okay with that! My dressing table certainly looks more instaworthy!

I love the shade of the Kiko Milano Intensely Lasvish Lipstick however I think it's a product you need to be careful wearing. If it's an intense pop of colour you're after for a day out or even just for capturing that awesome selfie then this lipstick is amazing. If you're after something a little more hard wearing it's not one that I would recommend - But the lip liners! I'd recommend those till the cows came home!

Have you tried any Kiko lippies before? I'd love to hear your thoughts if you have.
