You Can't Just Have One: Kiko Ultra Glossy Stylo in 806 Tangerine
I mentioned in my last KIKO post that I stumbled upon a KIKO in Cologne, Germany and had to pick up a few more shades of the products I loved from my first haul. The KIKO Ultra Glossy Stylo in 807 Red Coral really stood out to me and I wanted to add another bright shade to my collection. I prefer having an even number of shades of a certain product and when I have an odd number, I'm constantly itching to "complete" the set. This can be a problem when it comes to luxury beauty products but the Ultra Glossy Stylos retail for €4.90 for 2 grams or .07oz so you're not going to break the bank with these.
Looking at the entire line up of shades, I almost couldn't pick a shade that I wanted. There were several nude and my lips-but-better shades but I already have multiple nude lipsticks that I need to use up. Some other shades had glitter particles in them and I prefer cream finishes. Then I spotted 806 Tangerine, a beautiful and bright true orange shade. The rest, is history.
The vanilla scented lippie glides on smoothly and leaves a glossy finish on the lips. The product does not settle into lip lines and feels incredibly comfortable on. The sheer lipstick fades in about two to three hours and disappears evenly, never leaving weird white patches of gunk like some other products might. The formula also contains SPF 15 which is helpful to prevent sunburn.
The KIKO Ultra Glossy Stylos are a great lip butter type product that come at an affordable price. I highly recommend them and hope that KIKO expands and brings its products to the Americas!
