KIKO Rock Idol Lipstick

If you like sheer lipsticks with a satin like matte finish then this one by KIKO will be right up your street. It's got a lovely velvety texture and while it's not the best for chapped, often ignored lips - it's quite a lovely one to wear after a good slapping of 8 hour cream on the lips at night. 

Not the most long lasting of formulas especially if you're a regular coffee/tea drinker like myself, nonetheless it leaves a gorgeous hint of pigmented stain that works at giving that pop of colour on the lips mid-day.  Just the time when you want to avoid looking corspe-like. I know that's the time I usually start looking, well...yellowish you see. Think Simpsons! This particular shade is a peachy one with a milky neon, almost pastel like hint to it. Perfect for Spring/Summer and more importantly to pair with a gorgeous tan. 

The crayon is particularly thin this time compared to your usual chubby crayons that can be difficult to manoeuvre and line the lips. This is somewhere in between a kajal pencil and a chubby stick making it a perfect product to apply precisely for an evening out or perhaps even cheat a fuller lip shape Lisa Eldridge style. It's not as intimidating as a full on orange lipstick and quite easy to touch up in case of smudging emergencies really. 

Priced at £7.90, it's not something I can fault. If you're over glossy lip stains and are looking for a matte lip offering that isn't as scary as the regular lipstick, then this is worth a try.
