Berry Lips - Kiko

I am not really a bold lip colour kind of girl. I don't always feel I have the confidence to wear them and when I do I find them quite high-maintenance. But I have found myself drawn to the recent bold pink/berry lip trend and when I was in Kiko looking at more lipsticks to add to my quickly growing Kiko lipstick collection (see previous post here) I just had to pick up this beautiful shade (shade 914). 

I would say that it is a bold pinky purple colour with blue undertones which in some lights can even look more on the red side. It is a raspberry toned pink which I think would work perfectly all year round. It looks very dark in the bullet but much lighter when swatched and applied to the lips. The pigmentation is fantastic though and the colour seems to stain the lips slightly meaning that it actually lasts a reasonably long time. 

It is very easy to apply and doesn't seem to bleed at all. When applied straight from the bullet you get a strong bold berry lip colour but for everyday I prefer to swipe gently and then pat the colour in to the lips for a softer easier to wear look, meaning that this lipstick is very versatile. 

Patted in to the lips for a softer look.

I have been so impressed by the Kiko Smart Lipsticks so far, especially considering that they are only £3.90! I do prefer them to other high-street brand lipsticks that I have tried and I am sure I will be purchasing some more in to the not too distant future. 

Have you tried any of the Kiko Smart Lipsticks? What berry coloured lipsticks would you recommend? Let me know by commenting below...
