After reviewing the shade “Tropical Juice,” I am back with the review of another shade from Kiko Milano Deco Delight Lipstick – Margarita Dreams. Read on to find out more about this lipstick.
Shiny, wet-look lipstick decorated with contrasting polka dots. The formula containing the most advanced oils melts onto the lips for a soft and shiny look. The lipstick awakens the senses, leaving your lips feeling wonderful. The supple texture with bright, semi-sheer pigments brings out the smile’s sensuality. The color is buildable. Deco Delight Lipstick comes in a contemporary, purple case decorated in the “Miami Beach Babe” style. Gently fragranced with a vanilla aroma. Available in six colors.
My Experience with Kiko Margarita Dreams Milano Deco Delight Lipstick:
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a cute purple polka dotted case. The cap clicks shut tight. Only the number of the lipstick is printed on the sticker at the bottom of the tube. The name of the lipstick appears on the outer plastic packaging. The lipstick bullet also has polka dots on it which look very adorable, but these polka dots are there only for decoration purposes and they do not add any extra color or shine.
Shade/Pigmentation: Margarita Dreams is a lovely purplish pink shade. The pigmentation is very sheer and almost balm like. It gives a lovely barely-there touch of color to my lips. I personally like more pigmented lipsticks, but those of you who like light sheer lipsticks will enjoy wearing this. Since this is such a sheer shade, it will look good on all skin tones. Kiko says that the color is buildable, but I did not find so.
Texture/Finish/Lasting Power: The lipstick is very creamy and glides on the lips. In fact, it is a bit too creamy and there is a danger of the bullet snapping due to heat. The finish is glossy and satiny. The lipstick feels moisturizing and does not dry out your lips at all and this can be attributed to the presence of advanced oils.
Since, this is such a creamy lipstick, its staying power is pretty average. It does not last on me beyond 2-3 hours, but it manages to keep the lips hydrated for a long time. It transfers a little too.
To summarize, the formula and pigmentation of the lipstick is just okay but it is the packaging which steals the show.
Pros of Kiko Margarita Dreams Milano Deco Delight Lipstick:
- Adorable and unique packaging and lipstick bullet.

Cons of Kiko Margarita Dreams Milano Deco Delight Lipstick:
