Kiko Luscious Cream Lipstick – a MAC Amplified Finish Dupe?

In Barcelona I came across a Kiko store in the shopping centre near our hotel. I had heard some good things about Kiko products so I was excited by the place! I managed to restrain myself to buying just a single lipstick though, but it turned out to be a good’un!

I bought the shade 503 Hot Cocoa. I find this formulation very similar to MAC’s Amplified finish, which is my favourite! So I loved this, very creamy. They’re half the price and probably I would say, last longer on the lips!ย 

Also, Kiko appear to be a cruelty free company, which MAC are not! So that’s another great plus to choosing these over a MAC lipstick. After looking into cruelty free beauty one night I was shocked, and slightly horrified, how many brands I use still condone animal testing. Mainly through their decisions to sell in China, which require by law that products be animal tested before being sold in the country. So I’m going to try and be more informed in my choices with future purchases!ย 

The packaging is pretty quirky. It took me a while to figure it out, but the lipstick is basically in a case and you push it out the top! Very unusual. A bit bulky… But it’s cool. I would definitely consider buying this lipstick in more colours, and it’s also intrigued me as to the rest of Kiko’s lipsticks and their makeup in general! Very impressed by my first experience of them.
