My Experience with Kiko #706 Classic Red Smart Lip Pencil:
Smart Lip Pencil #706 as the name suggests is a pretty red with more of an orangish tone. It tends to look more orange on the lips. Of the three lip pencils that I have bought from this range, this one is my favorite. It is a wooden pencil that will need sharpening to get that precise tip.
The tip does not need sharpening till 4-5 times of usage. It’s very creamy and soft in texture and the application is very smooth. Although it is creamy and soft, it does not break due to the soft texture. It has this perfect balance of being soft and strong to be able to apply neatly without breaking or crumbling.
The pigmentation is awesome. One application brings out the true color. Also, you can manipulate its intensity as and when required. I did not experience any tugging or pulling during application. The finish is completely matte. I have dry lips and so I could not use this lip pencil on the entire lips as a base just like that.
Although in the pictures, I have used the lip pencil overall on the lips, but it started to feel dry within 10-15 minutes, I had to use a lip balm. So, I can use a lip balm and use this pencil as a base for my red lipsticks, but the color on its own is also pretty and if one does not have the problem of dry lips, then they can use this lip pencil on its own as well.
The staying power is around 4-5 hours, but it would not survive much through snacking, water, and definitely not any meal. It starts fading away from the center of the lips, but if used only for lining, then it stays on pretty well.
Also, it does not seem to bleed outside the lip line. It is definitely not waterproof and can be removed easily with water. Overall, a good lip pencil.
