Today, I am back with a review on a Kiko makeup product. This time, it is on the double touch lipstick, which is a liquid lipstick. Liquid lipsticks are all the rage at the moment and it seems that every single brand in the market seem to be coming out with them! I am personally a great fan of liquid lipsticks because they are so easy to apply and use. To know more about my thoughts on this product, please keep reading!
Liquid lipstick duo with shining effect. Lasts up to 10 hours*. An extraordinary combination of colour base and lipgloss with an intense, luminous finish. The colour adheres to the lips and stays on for hours. Colour base: its formula, enriched with a combination of film-forming polymers, ensures maximum comfort, exceptional adherence to the lips and an even, ultra long-lasting colour. Its soft, flocked applicator follows the contour of the lips and outlines them with maximum precision. Special no-transfer texture that is smudge-proof and dries very quickly.
Lipgloss: a soothing-action formula to give the lips a luminous and shiny finish. Its bristle applicator makes it easy to apply and ensures the use of just the right amount of product.
My Experience with Kiko Milano #113 Black Cherry Double Touch Lipstick:
The double touch lipstick comes in a double-ended tube, with one side containing the liquid lipstick and the other side containing a gloss. I like the idea of this packaging, it is pretty unique and it means that you can experiment with a matte lip or a glossy one. The gloss is clear and quite thick and comes with a brush applicator, whilst the liquid lipstick comes with a doe-foot applicator. That being said, it does mean that there is a smaller quantity of liquid lipstick compared to other products on the market.
I often prefer to have matte lips though, so I don’t use the gloss often. The shade of this liquid lipstick is a deep warm toned red, almost maroon, and I think it will look beautiful, especially on darker skin tones. There are fifteen shades in total in this range, which include a mixture of pinks and reds. Not all lipsticks are matte, there are also a few shimmery shades in this range.
The texture of the lipstick isn’t as creamy as say, the NYX Matte lip creams, it is a little more liquid in formula but it still applies easily onto the lips. Since the formula is a little more fluid, it does mean that there is a greater chance of it getting onto your teeth, so make sure to let the product dry fully. This liquid lipstick dries quickly, which is great. I have found that one application of this product isn’t enough for an opaque matte finish, it applies on a little patchy in places and so I think that 2-3 coats of this lipstick is essential for a matte finish. I also like to line my lips underneath and I find that this helps the lipstick last on longer. As for the smell, it reminds me of a vanilla cupcake, which I am definitely happy with!
The product claims to be a 10-hour lipstick and I’ve actually had this lipstick on for near that time; I found that it does stay in place for a long duration and most of it did remain on my lips, although there was a fade of colour. Unless you don’t eat, drink or talk for 10 hours than I don’t think this lipstick will remain looking the exact same for such a long period!
As for the price, here in the UK it is £6.90, so it lies within the typical drugstore price range, making it pretty affordable.

Cons of Kiko Milano #113 Black Cherry Double Touch Lipstick:
