Kiko Luminous Chrome Metallic Lipstick Review & Swatches

Kiko Luminous Chrome Metallic Lipstick1

Kiko Luminous Chrome Metallic Lipstick ($9) is yet another great testimony to the brand’s power to create incredibly formulated lip products at a very, very affordable price tag.

I was recently at the Kiko Store at the Danbury Mall and picked up a shade of Kiko Luminous Chrome Metallic Lipstick on a whim. Because, well, I can’t say I ever left one of their stores without buying at LEAST one thing (that’s a lie, typically it’s a bag full of things).

Kiko Luminous Chrome Metallic Lipstick shouted out me because of the rather Sci-Fi packaging. The long iridescent silver-ish pink barrel with the metallic pink push to release button had me thinking River Song must surely be carrying this around through all of time and space.

Kiko Luminous Chrome Metallic Lipstick has a multi-reflecting, intense pearly effect finish that gives lips a chrome-like effect. Personally, I didn’t really get the chrome or metallic finish here but I did get super shine.

I think lipstick formulas like this are such a joy to work with. They practically apply themselves! This formula is thin, slick, and lightweight. It melts as you slide it across lips and leaves behind gorgeous luminous color that looks shiny and feels lightly moisturizing through the wear. I had no issues with the color migrating or feather and it wore for a four hour period with a very moist feel through that wear. The texture is really super light and looks smooth, soft, and even on my drier lips without clinging to drier areas.

If you’re looking for lipstick with a high feel and a little price tag Kiko Luminous Chrome Metallic Lipstick is a delightful little formula that’s sure to please available in a huge variety of shades.

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.

    Wow, you were in my neck of the woods…I live in the Danbury area! I love that they have a Kiko now…I went in the first day they opened and got some great deals. Sadly, every time I’m at the mall, there’s rarely anyone in the Kiko store. I’m not sure if it’s like that everywhere or just here but I feel like not enough people know about it. It’s a shame because I don’t want them to close!

      awesome! 🙂 I went up for a little Christmas shopping! No, seems to be the same everywhere 🙁 the kiko at the rockland county mall is so sadly lonely!

        Why?? I would LOVE to have a Kiko store near me, I would spend all day in there

  • Andrea G

    Love it! I’m sure River would have a few, maybe even a sonic screwdriver hidden in one of them

    Well, Muse…there you go creating another lemming. You FORCED me to get all the Intensely Lavish lipsticks after your last review lol. Their lipstick formula is phenomenal for the price tag. I liken it to the way a chocolate truffle melts in your mouth. Except for these it’s on your lips haha. Will have to check them out now!! Happy New Year 🙂

    • Isabella Muse

      ha Audrey I love that! A chocolate truffle 🙂 I’m so glad you enjoyed them! I think they are amazing! I hope you like Luminous Chrome just as much 😀 xo Happy New Year!

    That’s a nice red on you! I have such a difficult time wearing true reds, i usually wuss out and go for raspberry or rosey shades instead.

  • zVintageFashionizta

    WOW, another fabulous shade of red to add to my wish list!
