Juicy Springtime Red: KIKO Poppy Red Lipstick

KIKO Poppy Red LipstickNow that we are in the new year I am getting into the mood for bright colours. With the Christmas lights gone and the days still dark and dreary a juicy pink or red lipstick has the magical power to lift my spirits like nothing else. It helps that this one is a massive bargain!

I love KIKO as a brand - the quality of the products is amazing and the prices affordable. I picked up a few bits during my last trip to London (you can get shipping to Ireland from their website as well though) and the product that stood out to me most was this beautiful Unlimited Stylo Lipstick in the shade 06 Poppy Red, a gorgeous & fresh bright red.

The texture and consistency of this lipstick is a dream - it is smooth and creamy but sets to a semi-matte / satin finish and does not budge! I had this on during dinner recently and fully expected it to be gone by the time I was finished eating... but no, there it was, still perfectly intact at the end of the night! It is truly long-lasting, in fact, you have to give it a good cleanse to take it off (nothing a bit of Bioderma or cleansing oil can't handle). I also love the shape and size of the bullet, it's easy enough to apply even without a lip brush.

KIKO Lipstick in Poppy Red The Unlimited Stylo Lipsticks are €5.80 which is just insane for the fabulous quality you get! If you are in the market for a gorgeous long-lasting lippy, definitely check these out! I will be picking up more colours for sure!
