Kiko Smart Lipstick Review + Swatches


Kiko Smart Lipstick Review | 918, 913 and 909

It's been a while since I reviewed a product, and I feel like it was about time I talked about my small collection of Kiko Smart Lipsticks.

It's no secret just how much I'm in love with these bad boys, they're the most comfortable lipsticks ever (and I have the driest lips in history), super creamy, but still manage to have a pretty decent colour payoff. They also have a good staying power, usually three to five hours, depending on the shade you have.

I currently own three shades: (from left to right) 909, 913 and 918.

909 (Cherry Red) is a gorgeous red, perfect for an everyday bold lip. However, it's very versatile, and with a more dramatic eye makeup, it also works perfectly for a more glam look. I'm absolutely in love with this shade, it lasts a good two and a half/three hours on my lips, which I know isn't a lot, but keep in mind this lipstick is a creamy formula. It's definitely not matte, but it's not glossy either. Plus it's very pigmented, I only need a couple of swipes to get a very nice colour pay off.

913 (Rosewood) is a lovely pink colour. I find it less creamy than the other two, but also more pigmented. I think it would be a perfect everyday shade for darker skin tones, but it also looks good on lighter skin tones like my own, even if it's a little more bold. It's definitely not a matte finish either, but it does stay on the lips a good three/four hours. It's still a very comfortable lipstick to wear, even if it transfers a bit (like all of these lipsticks do, actually).

918 (Classic Rose) is probably my favourite of the bunch, mostly because it's a perfect MLBB shade. It's a lot less pigmented than the other shades, and it gives a more lustre finish than the other ones. It's the one that lasts the least as well, but it does leave a nice stain on the lips. Weirdly enough, it's the least creamy of the bunch as well, but it's still very comfortable on the lips.

Here's the swatches! From top to bottom: 909, 913, 918. As you can see, 918 is the least pigmented. Overall, they all have lovely consistencies, they don't cling to dry patches much, nor do they apply uneven. For only 3.90€ (they're currently 2.50€ on their website), I think they're way better quality than the price suggests. I'm definitely getting my hands on more shades soon, and I recommend these for anyone who is struggling to find comfortable lipsticks with a decent colour payoff!
