Kiko Ph Lip Enhancer Review & Swatches

I have a super soft soft for color changing lipsticks so when I noticed Kiko Ph Lip Enhancer ($14) pop up with the Summer 2.0 Collection I was all, “Oh I need that in my life!” I know, I know, how much pH Lipstick does one girl need in her life! But who can resist?

Here’s thoughts and review on Kiko’s Ph Lip Enhancer!

You know, I must sound like a broken record but allow me to say once more how impressive Kiko’s packaging is. Their pH Lip Enhancer comes in a gorgeous light rose gold (or light pink beige if you will) barrel with a ridge design that’s simply stunning. It’s a lipstick worthy of your vanity. It’s just a stunning packaging!

This formula is pretty basic and quite nice if you want a very light, sheer wash of color on your lips that won’t turn into a hot bubblegum pink shade. The bright orange-y translucent shade applies as a sheer rosy pink on my lips. Many pH lipsticks end up turning neon pink on my lips but this enhances my own natural lip color without overpowering it with bright pink. The color was super easy to wear and natural looking.

The texture is very dense at first pass! So dense in fact that it tugged during application! But no worries, it warms up after a few strokes and the “harder shell” disappears after a single use to reveal a much softer formula. I find the texture lightly hydrating with a light balmy consistency that hugs lips nicely. I find the color lasts for about three hours. For sensitive users, I didn’t notice a flavor but there is a subtle scent which is sort of sweet but I can’t quite identify exactly what it is.

If you like a quick splash of sheer, natural color on your lips you should get on well with Kiko pH Lip Enhancer.

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.

    I might need this. I had a chance to try the eye shadow I bought from Kiko and I’m impressed. I don’t understand how a European drugstore brand is so much better than US drugstore brands! It’s affordable without feeling cheap. (Although, I feel like Korean “road shop” brass are too.)

      Zoeva seems mid-end (had a price hike) but they suit me wonderfully, only having tried eye products. They started as a brush company, as you probably know. Europe DOES a far better job with less than HE m/u for sure.
