Kiko Smart Lipstick No.908 swatches and review

Kiko Makeup Milano is a drugstore brand from Italy. Dear Lunaface from Lunaface The Flintstone Loves Pretty picked this up for me during her epic trip to Europe. It makes me happy to know that someone is thinking of me during their trip, thanks Luna!

I think it is an absolutely great idea to gift makeup addicted friends with more makeup especially stuff you can't get in your own country.

Knowing me very well, Luna picked a red lipstick. One can never have enough red lipsticks in my opinion.

Rich, nourishing lipstick. Full colour, total comfort.

Dense, nourishing texture with an ultra-silky and immediate smooth-gliding quality. The extreme sensoriality and soft consistency enhance the application experience and the resulting feeling of comfort. Thanks to the large drop-shaped lipstick tip, the colour is easy to apply and immediately adheres to the lips, defining them with precision. The adaptable intensity of the colour allows for a careful control of the finish and an immediately intense, long-lasting coverage.

The combination of cutting-edge ingredients in the formula makes the texture comfortable, velvety and emollient. The extremely radiant polymers guarantee a pure, radiant effect, while the delicate vanilla fragrance makes it pleasant to use.

The design is simple and elegant in terms of colours and shapes. The ergonomic shape of the lid, with an upper hollow, facilitates pack closure.

Available in 24 shades, from the most natural and delicate to the brightest and most intense, with 3 different finishes: full, satin and pearl.

Hypoallergenic = formulated to ensure minimum instance of allergic reactions.

Paraben free.

The black no frills plastic casing is sturdy yet light.

No. 908 is a pretty warm cherry red. I love how it looks on my lips. It is emollient and applies smoothly on my lips without drying my lips out.  It is also pigmented and gives great colour in one swipe. For 2.50 pounds what a great steal!

I don't normally wear white because I hate how transparent white can be but I wanted to try out my new white T-shirt. I really love how red lip stick instantly glams up a simple white T-shirt. I generally like to keep my eye makeup simple but I cannot leave the house without my eye liner. 

Anyways, you got to pick up a Kiko Smart lipstick if you are in Europe. For its price, it is a great lipstick.

Ratings: 5 lipsticks

I leave you with some food porn. These were some of the dishes Luna and I ate when we met up. I love Cedele and I love pasta! Did I mention how we love our desserts.

Beef ragout pasta
Crab pasta
Earl Grey and Salted Caramel ice cream
Chocolate fudge cake
Nothing beats good food and even greater company.


  1. you look great in red lips as always! the pics of the pastas are making me drool!

  2. What a lovely shade of red. You should wear white more often, it brings out the lip color :)

    1. I'm always hunting for white dresses and shirts that aren't too transparent but it's hard to find good ones.

  3. SALTED CARAMEL ICE CREAM!!! Salted caramel is my favorite thing in the world!

    That aside, what a pretty lipstick! It's absolutely stunning on you! I've heard a lot about Kiko, but we don't have a shop here. I need to find one in the Netherlands soon tho :)

    1. Luna just passed me a kiko cream shadow stick and blush that are awesome too Sunny, too bad they are quite inaccessible for me, I would love to try more cream shadow sticks.

  4. Yay! it looks awesome on you!! Now i wish I'd lugged more Kiko home.. hahaha

    1. Luna, Kiki is such an awesome beauty find, ok next time you go back to Italy you can lug back on the cream eye shadows :)

  5. That's a lovely vibrant shade on you :) I have to say I am eyeing up the ice cream and fudge cake....leans in and has a bite...


    1. Clare, I think we would have loved for you to come and share the calories with us. :)

  6. You look truly gorgeous in white shirt and red lips. I love that bright red, I think there's a pink tone in it and it looks so good on you!

    1. Dear Meryl, you are too kind, thank you my sweet.
