I love lipsticks and I could buy them in every possible color and brand possible, but I have to stop myself a lot. I love them more if the lipsticks are matte or satin or velvet matte finish! So I keep trying lipsticks of such formulas from different brands and then I got this new lipstick. Kiko Milano Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick 310. I have been using this lipstick off and on for some time now and I would like to share my views on it today!
About The Looks!
The lipstick comes in packed in a black box which kind of resembles like that of MAC, the only difference is that MAC lipstick boxes don’t have a lot printed on them, whereas KIKO one has a lot. It has the name of the brand with its logo, the name of the product, ingredients, price, quantity, etc. The top flap of the box has the shade number. There are no names for these lipsticks only numbers which makes it difficult for me to remember them. I can remember names a lot easier than numbers. The lipstick itself is gorgeously packed! I love the design and color of it! The lipstick case is round shaped and the top part or the cap is of metal gray color and the bottom part which has the lipstick bullet is of gold color. When it’s opened the gold part has a small gray part which is uniquely placed. The lipstick has a magnet in it which makes it close securely. I love this part. Only Nars lipstick had such a feature earlier, or that is what I know. I really love the beautiful and unique design and metallic and chic packaging!

My views and thoughts on the Kiko Milano Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick 310!
I love the color! It’s a beautiful warm pink or coral shade. It’s a dark bright pink with red undertones which makes it warm. This color is perfect for fall/autumn and spring time. Though you can totally play with it in summers too as it’s bright. The shade is such that it will suit all Indian skin tones. This is due to its warm undertone. It will look slightly different on different skin tones, but it will certainly look nice.
The formula is what I am a huge fan of! It’s amazing! When it says velvet matte finish outside, it says the truth! The formula feels matte when you apply it on the lips but does not dries out the lips like other super matte lipsticks. It applies evenly without any tugging and gives a beautiful velvet like finish which is matte but makes your lips feel hydrated all the time. This formula does not accentuate the fine lines on the lips instead, it blurs them out! This is the amazing part! It keeps my lips soft, supple and hydrated!
The shape of the bullet top is also unique and good, as it makes the application pretty precise and easy. The lasting power of the lipstick is pretty good too! It lasts on lips without any meals for about 6 – 7 hours and with meals around 5 – 6 hours, depending on the type of the meal. It does transfers but not too much.
