Today I would be reviewing 2 Lip Pencils from the KIKO Smart Lip Pencil Range. I am so glad that KIKO is now available in India and honestly, it is quite an affordable range of makeup with a really wide selection of colors.
Creamy and blendable wooden lip pencil.
An innovative formula, the result of the perfect balance between blendability and precision, to define lips with a natural finish.
The intense, high-coverage line adheres perfectly to the lips from the first application with a no-transfer, smudge-proof hold.
Hypoallergenic product = formulated to ensure minimum instance of allergic reactions.
Available in 16 colours.
Being a lipstick lover, I am also equally attracted to and love to hoard Lip liner pencils in all kinds of shades and colors. On my trip to Rome I had picked up these 2 KIKO Smart Lip Pencils hence I have mentioned the price in euros, I am not sure about the price of these lip pencils in India but I am sure they would be very affordably priced.
The KIKO Smart Lip Pencils come in a simple sharpenable pencil form with a silver cap and color coded ends. So its quite easy to pick your shade when you have many of these. Also, I personally prefer sharpen-able pencils more than retractable ones so yays to that!
The 2 KIKO Smart Lip Pencils that I have are #709 Magenta and #712 Rose Mauve. Many people think that KIKO products have only number and not names, however, if you do refer the KIKO International Website, you can find all shade names along with the numbers.
KIKO Smart Lip Pencil #709 is a beautiful Magenta Pink with strong warm coral undertones. On the other hand #712 is a beautiful nude-ish mauve shade with cool grey undertones.
The texture of KIKO Smart Lip Pencils is soft and blendable just as mentioned in the product description. However, I do wish it was more creamy because there is slight stiffness in the way that it moves over the lips.
The KIKO Smart Lip Pencils are medium pigmented. To cover the lips completely with color, the lip pencils need to be swiped over a couple of times.
The Smart Lip pencils from KIKO not only provide a good base for lipsticks but also stops them from feathering or bleeding. But when used on their own, these lip pencils may look a little patchy and uneven.
Overall, the KIKO Smart Lip pencils offer great value in terms of quality and performance. They make your lipstick stay, are available in a variety of colours and are affordably priced. The only drawback if I may say so is that they can’t be used on their own since they may look a little uneven when worn that way.
