During my visit to the DLF Mall OF India Store I picked quite a lot of stuff from Kiko, and some of them are still pending for review. One of them is this gorgeous Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick No 314, the shade caught my attention immediately. There were over 20 shades to choose from and I picked my favourite hue – Plum
The creamy, easily blended texture gives the lips an intense matte look. The application awakens your senses, leaving the lips feeling wonderful. The colour glides on effortlessly and is revealed right away. The lipstick is long lasting.
Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick comes in a distinctive, brushed aluminum tube with the KK logo on the top. The magnetic closure ensures that the lipstick is perfectly preserved. Its special square tip allows for a quick, easy application. Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick is available in 20 shades, with one to suit every complexion, for lips that are always made up perfectly.
Packaging is beautiful ! Grey & Gold, classy & chic.. The grey cap is magnetic and comes off easily, but shuts with a click which means it wouldn’t open in your handbag. It is sleek & feels sturdy.
Shade – No 314 is a pretty plum, it is muted but bright enough to brighten your face. I love such shades since they work with my complexion well. The shade would look good on all skin tones especially medium to deeper skin tone.
Texture & Formula – As the name suggests it is a matte lipstick with velvet finish. Texture is smooth but not creamy, it glides on smoothly but doesn’t feel creamy or buttery. At the same time the formula feels nice and moisturising on the lips. Kiko 314 Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick doesn’t feel or look crumbly and gives you opaque finish in 2 strokes.
The formula doesn’t get patchy or flaky even after meals. I really like how soft & matte it looks and doesn’t emphasis lip lines too much.
Pigmentation – Shade 314 is very pigmented. It covers and evens out lips in one stroke which means that the color would look the same even if you have pigmented lips.
Staying Power – You can get a wear of good 5-7 hours. I have worn it multiple times and it survives meals , you would have to touch up the color a bit afterwards.
Kiko 314 Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick is priced at Rs 950, available at Kiko Milano Stores Delhi
If you love mattes and a velvety finish then do give Kiko Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick a shot. There are so many shades , I am sure all of you can get one of your choice. The case is classy and formula feels high end.
