Matte liquid lipsticks are all the rage right now and here I am, craving a beautiful lipgloss. I picked up this Kiko Milano 3D Hydra Lipgloss when I was in Italy back in September and I am absolutely in love with everything about it.
First off, the packaging. It comes in a box… I chuck this out anyway so Kiko doesn’t get any points for that, BUT… the lipgloss tube itself! The shape of it is beautiful but what’s better is that you can see and feel when it’s closed because the shape of the wand lines up with the shape of the tube and it makes a little click. This packaging is perfection, aesthetically pleasing and practical.
Now here’s the thing about lipgloss… Not everybody likes it (no shit). I like my lipgloss to be thick and to feel a bit sticky on my lips. When a lipgloss is a bit sticky, I find that it lasts a lot longer on my lips. I love the Mac Lipglasses for this reason, they’re very thick and very sticky but they last a really long time. This Kiko lipgloss formula doesn’t quite beat the Mac Lipglasses but it comes in pretty close!
I love how this is thick enough to make my lips look a little bit plumper and as for the “hydra” bit of the name, yes, it is indeed very hydrating.
I love this particular colour, shade 07. It’s a perfect pinky nude colour that’s just perfect in my eyes. It’s the colour that I wish that my lips could be.
I love everything about this lipgloss, it’s really truly stunning and it exceeded all of my expectations.
This is certainly worth picking up if you’re at a Kiko store and you’re into thick sticky lipglosses.
PS: My boyfriend hates it.
