After reviewing the shade “02 Glare Poppy Red” from the Kiko Milano Colour2 lipsticks, I am back with another shade – 03 Hearty Magenta. Read on to find out more.
Innovative lipstick duo that combines glossy color with a full shade formula. The creamy texture melts onto the lips creating intensely radiant shades. Enriched with antioxidant lychee extract and argan oil with a hydrating action.
My Experience with Kiko Milano Colour 2 Lipstick in 03 Hearty Magenta:
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a sleek silver metallic cylindrical tube packaging. The cap has a magnetic closure mechanism and smoothly clicks shut. The packaging feels and looks classy. Kiko has only the number printed on the sticker at the bottom of the tube. The name of the lipstick appears on the outer packaging. The colour2 lipstick bullet itself is quite unique too as it is in a duo format – it has a full shade lipstick and a glossy lighter shade both fused together.
Shade/Pigmentation: “Hearty Magenta” as the name suggests is a deep magenta shade. It also has a lighter red shade lipstick on one side of the bullet. As you can see from the hand swatches, the lighter red shade can hardly provide any coverage on its own. Also, it is kind of awkward to apply only this part of the lipstick due to its shape. The two shades are meant to be used together and the lighter shade adds a nice sheen to the finish. The lipstick is decently pigmented and manages to cover even pigmented lips in one swipe. Honestly, when I had first looked at the bullet, I was not expecting it to be such a beautiful shade. It looks almost maroon in the bullet, but on the lips, it gives a nice pink hue. The lipstick looks beautiful and would look good on Indian skin tones.
Texture/Finish/Lasting Power: The texture of the lipstick is quite creamy and it applies very smoothly on the lips, but the downside is that there is a little slip while applying this lipstick and I would suggest using a lip liner.
The finish is a glossy crème and makes the lips look juicy and plump. The lipstick feels moisturizing and does not dry out your lips at all and this can be attributed to the presence of Argan oil in the ingredients.
But since this is such a creamy lipstick, its staying power is pretty average. It does not last on me beyond 3-4 hours, but it manages to keep the lips hydrated for a long time.
It transfers to cups and cutlery and you would surely need touch-ups over the day.

Would I Repurchase Kiko Milano Colour 2 Lipstick in 03 Hearty Magenta?
This is a lipstick with a nice creamy formula and a beautiful glossy finish. If you do not mind the poor staying power, you can try this lipstick. I own one more shade from the range and would not buy more.
