KIKO | Velvet Matte Lipsticks + Discount Code
February marked a new love affair with KIKO's free shipping. Naturally, the beauty blogger inside wanted one of everything, in every shade possible and most of all to get my hands on one of their Velvet Matte Satin Lipsticks. So much so that after two excessive orders I am off to visit the store today to purchase, yet again. Yes, they are really that good.
The first thing I have to rave about (Read: come back to see more of my KIKO stash) are these stunning matte lipsticks for less than half of the price of everyone's beloved MAC Mattes. The packaging is a beautiful click system in gold and opalescent rose that looks very chic and expensive; whilst the shades range from nudes, browns, reds, oranges and berries. Though I would love to see them bring out some more kooky shades soon.
I picked up the shades Orange Red  and Pink Carnation . Ten points if you can guess what Orange Red 's a dupe for (if not, see my upcoming post). Whilst Pink Carnation reminds me a lot of one of my favorite every lippies, Topshop's Beatnik [discontinued], though in a matte instead of satin finish.
The formula is rich and not too drying and, to use it as a benchmark once more, is slightly less pigments and and long lasting than my MACs but for the price I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another. Have you tried and tested out KIKO's beauty range yet? They currently have 20% discount using the code 4ALLWOMEN until the 10th March, so now may be a good time to try!
