Kiko Cosmetics Intensely Lavish Lipstick Review & Swatches

Kiko Cosmetics Intensely Lavish Lipstick6

Kiko Cosmetics Intensely Lavish Lipstick is all the proof you’ll ever need that Kiko is by far the best budget brand around. What if I told you I paid $9 each for Kiko’s new and sadly limited edition Intensely Lavish Lipsticks? What if I told you that are JUST as fabulous as a Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick?

Well they are.

Kiko Cosmetics Intensely Lavish Lipstick

Recently, Kiko Cosmetics started opening US stores in a variety of malls! Apparently there are a few right here in New York but the one I first visited was at the Palisades Mall and it was how I learned that this European brand was coming here to the US.

More recently Kiko Cosmetics launched an online store that ships within the US. And better still, we get all the limited edition collections from Kiko both online and in stores.

How’s that for cool?

Kiko Cosmetics Intensely Lavish Lipstick launched with the limited edition Rebel Romantic Collection in six gorgeous shades (why I only purchased three is killing me right now! How stupid! I should have gotten them all! I have to go back and get them all ASAP!).

Intensely Lavish Lipstick comes housed in a weighty rose gold barrel that looks and feels very high end (0.12 oz). Kiko describes them as a creamy lipstick with an intense and bright colour. I call them simply amazing. They have a smooth, creamy, delicious formula that glides on lips like butter. This buttery texture is decadent and feels very, very high end. The lightweight texture wears beautifully with absolutely no fragrance or flavor. They glide on without skipping and feel lightly moisturizing with excellent pigmentation in a single swipe. I have a cold so my images below do not do these justice as my lips are a bit drier and cracked. But I promise, this is truly an incredible creamy texture that I’m having a hard time believing I paid a mere $9 bucks for. The wear is just as good at five solid hours without migrating or feather.

The sad part about Kiko’s Intensely Lavish Lipstick is the fact it is limited edition so I suggest grabbing them up before they disappear. At $9 each they feel apply, feel, and look like I paid triple that amount.

Simply a gorgeous five star lipstick formula.

Great job Kiko you win a Muse Approval.

P.S. I ordered from Kiko’s website on a Monday and my order arrived Wednesday so they are very fast to ship as well!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    For me lipsticks and eyeliners are what Kiko is best at, so a new formula is always exciting! They have an even newer lipstick that has launched in Europe, can’t wait for it to get to the US.

  • Kayo

    I have 2 of the lipsticks (Lusty Peony and Pretty Mauve) & they are $10 each. The matching lipliners are $9 each.

    • Isabella Muse

      I paid nine, not sure why they are tend now, but looking at my receipt right now and it says 9 weird!

  • Audrey

    You had me at Rouge G lol. Those are some pretty lofty claims! 😉 Just hopped on and ordered all 6 but I paid $10 each. Thanks for the heads up!!

    • Isabella Muse

      My pleasure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Weird, I paid $9! But still 10 is good too! Stop back tell me what you think please?

      • Audrey

        Hi, Muse!! I’m happy to report back that these lipsticks are amazing. Though they’re not as emollient and have the delicate shimmer that the Rouge Gs have (you can only expect so much from a $10 lipstick vs a $50 one!!), these glide on like a dream with opaque color, settle down to a satin finish and just hug my lips for the rest of the day. The packaging is elegant and understated and the color selections are gorgeous for fall – very much leaning in the berry family. Thank you so much for bringing these to our attention 🙂

        • Isabella Muse

          YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so happy you like Audrey! True, they def aren’t exactly Rouge Gs formula but lord knows they are pretty fab 🙂 My pleasure and I’m happy you like them 🙂

    I went to Kiko for the first time Sunday (they *just* opened one here in South Jersey). I got (among other things) the Ultra Glossy and Luscious Cream lipsticks. Really liking them so far.

  • Jay

    I love the weight of these lipsticks! I bought 2 of them from the website a few weeks back. The colors are kind of meh, but the formula is soft and beautifully pigmented without being slippery. I stalk Kiko’s website for sales lol and I always have to hold myself back!

    • Isabella Muse

      oh no you don’t like the colors? I thought they were beautiful! Sorry to hear it! I agree! The formula is delightful 🙂 haha! I understand it is an addictive, cheap and awesome brand!

  • Jessica

    Hey Muse, thanks for the tip on this, I bought today and love the formula! Today everything was buy one get one free in store, so I got one for myself and one to gift! Also #02 is a dead ringer for KVD Lolita!

    • Isabella Muse

      OMG wish my store had that Jessica! I’m so glad you like them! Ha I didn’t even notice that but you’re right 🙂 Enjoy!!!!!!!!

    I picked up the lusty peony shade yesterday on your suggestion. It looks so good! Very hard to find shades that look amazing on a redhead with blue eyes. I love it. I was curious because I have never purchased a lipstick that was high end. This one is so nice and in a different class. I got the matching lip pencil to layer with gloss and also a lip scrub. So excited! New brand for me. Good store in the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City for DC folks.
