KIKO | Long Lasting Colour Lip Marker in True Red

Hello My Lovelies,

Hope you are all doing well! I am super excited as i jet off to Barcelona in the early hours of the morning. Its a mix between business and pleasure so i cannot wait to escape to the sunshine. Barcelona is a beautiful city and i have been a few times now...the Sephora there is one of the biggest in the world! Stopping by again is deffinitely on my list of things to do haha. 

I will still be active on all my social media whilst out there but i thought i would try and get another post up before i leave...may even be cheeky and upload something whilst i am out there haha. If you have been i would love to know your favorite places to stop by around the city!

I decided to post about another favoured lip product of mine...the 'KIKO Long Lasting Colour Lip Marker' in 'True Red'. If you read my blog then you know how much i love my pink lip combos so this was something completely different to try. Red lip shades used to scare me as i never used to think they suited me...but i have been adventurous and have loved going brighter on the lips!

These are the innovative, extremely long lasting a no transfer lip markers. First impression when i first swacthed the lip marker...OMG it seriously did not budge! These bad boys have serious staying power and i had a mark left on my arm for a good day and a half haha. Not complaining thought...that is exactly what you want in a Long Lasting Lip Marker such as this so a huge thumbs up to KIKO for the super long lasting formula. I also tested the transfering and it did not budge or smudge throughout the day which is perf...i hate nothing more when your eating and your lipstick goes everywhere (shock horror) haha. The Lip Marker did not dry out my lips, although i would suggest making sure they are scrubed and moistursed before hand as the formula dries instantly on your lips...and you dont want it drying on chapped lips as it will not budge haha. I used my LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub with my EOS Strawberry Sorbet Lip Balm before applying the Lip Marker. 

The water based formula, combined with special filming polymers guarantee a natural effect on the lips whilst maintaing a weightless feeling on the lips which is fab...not sure about you but i do prefer something that feels light ont he lips. The Lip Markers offer maximum comfort during application, immediate adherence to the lips and an adaptable intensity colour release. The fluid texture dries extremely quickly leaving behind an ultra-fine film on the lips. The formulas are also paraben free and are hypoallergenic to ensure minimum instance of allergic reactions.

As these are designed around the Lip Marker trend the slightly rounded percision tip allows you to outline the contour and fill the lips with the desired colour intensity, for an effect that goes from semi-transparent to full on intensive bold shade. The amazing part is that the formula is enriched with moisturising active ingredients which leaves your lips smooth and super soft to the touch. It has a slight fruity scent which makes it even more fun apply! It is not overpowering as some lip scents can be...its very subtle and refreshing. 

These little beauties are available in 8 resistent matte shades -

Orange Red
Peach Red
Deep Pink
True Red
Apple Red
Hot Pink

As you know i love my pink lip shades and corals for the summer i am ever so tempted to purchase and try out "Peach Red' and 'Hot Pink'...and for £6.90 you can't go wrong! Which ones would you try?

I hope you enjoyed this post, i would love to know yours thoughts and if you have tried out the KIKO Long Lasting Colour Lip Markers! If you have any questions or requests pretty please do not hesitate to contact me or leave me a comment below!

Lots of Love

  1. Thats a beautiful colour! It looks quite sheer swatched but i imagine on the lips it comes up a lot more pigmented, would you say that's the case?
