My Experience with KIKO Pink Flamingo #803 Ultra Glossy Stylo SPF 15 Lipstick:
Flamingo Pink is a cute sheer Pink shade. The bullet looks like a mauvish pink but on application it is a very natural pink. The kind of color we all dream to have as natural lips.
Pink Flamingo does not have any shimmer s in it. Since these belong to the glossy family these lipsticks have a glossy finishing. But the glossiness is not over the top and looks quite sober. Pink Flamingo is buttery soft. The texture is creamy and soft. The moment you see the bullet you will know how soft it is. But the bullet is strong enough to not break easily. It glides on the lips easily and does not tug or pull while application. Since these are very creamy and soft they might crumble on rough and unexfoliated patches. They are neither too drying nor too moisturizing. But I would recommend a lip balm always.
The pigmentation could have been better, at least in my case. Pink Flamingo basically gives a sheer pink tint to the lips. My lips being a little pigmented this shade is not that very evident on my lips. Although the shade can be intensified with multiple layering, but too much layering feels a little heavy on the lips. The staying power is good enough for 5-6 hours after which the glossiness starts fading away but leaves a pinkish tint to the lips.
This color is amongst those that when used gives you a no makeup look. You can see in my pictures that Pink Flamingo imparts a very natural glossy sheer pink shade to the lips and I am using it daily to office.
