On the shelves right now: the KIKO 3D Hydra Lipgloss. A gorgeous design and a promise of bright, shiny and plumped lips gave me an instant like for this gloss. I am trying out the 27 Pearly Lavender this week. Curious to know if KIKO stays true to its promise?
KIKO 3D Hydra Lipgloss
Glamourous and classy is what first comes to mind when I think of the packaging of the 3D Hydra lipgloss. The design is sleek and modern with a see-through body and metallic cap. As a finishing touch, the KK logo is embossed on the side. I am such a big fan of this packaging: it oozes femininity and elegance.
The lipgloss is available in 30 different shades what makes choosing a favorite really difficult. And KIKO wouldn’t be KIKO if they didn’t offer various finishes such as: transparent, pearly, shiny and highly pigmented. I finally decided on the 27 Pearly Lavender, a light and soft color.
But the best is yet to come! KIKO promises the gloss will hydrate your lips and make them look smooth, bright and plump. Sound pretty perfect, right?
Pulling the applicator wand out of the tube, I felt instantly happy. The wand design is just right: soft bristles, slightly bend and an angled tip. It easily spreads the gloss over your lips and nicely outlines them. Plus, the wand took out the right amount of liquid to evenly cover my entire lips. No messy business here. Happy me! 🙂
In the tube, the Pearly Lavender lipgloss has a light lila colour with a good amount of glitters mixed in. Once applied to my lips, the color edges more to transparent with a hint of lila. The finishing sheen and glitters gave my lips a wet and shiny look. Plump? Maybe with some imagination 😉
Right after I applied the lipgloss, my lips definitely felt soft and smooth but the gloss quickly started blending into my lips which gave them a rougher feeling when rubbing my lips together. Using a primer did help me to keep the creamy feeling a bit longer. The finish holds for a good two hours which is great for a lipgloss. My lips felt nicely hydrated during and after the lipgloss covered my lips.
The KIKO 3D Hydra Lipgloss in 27 Pearly Lavender is a beautiful lila-coloured lipgloss with a nice sheen and glittery finish. The gloss quickly blends into your lips but keeps its finish for about two hours. The texture takes some time getting used to, especially the grainy feel of the glitters on your lips but my lips looked so pretty I gladly oversee this small flaw 🙂
