Rebel Romantic is KIKO’s limited edition collection for Fall 2015 (alongside Midnight Siren). After being very impressed with the quality of the eye products I reviewed a couple of months ago (you can find the post here), I decided to give the lip liners a go as well.
At €/£ 4.90, the Intensely Lavish Lip Pencils are super affordable, very creamy, long-lasting and non-drying. Pretty much anything you could want in a lip liner! There are six shades in the range and the ones you can see pictured above are:
- 06 Melodious Wine: a dark burgundy.
- 04 Mild Sangria: a berry rose.
- 03 Luscious Red: a neutral red.
If you like a completely matte finish, these are creamy and even enough to be worn on their own, provided your lips are in tip-top shape (check out my lip care routine to find out how to have smooth lips all day every day). Out of the three I have, 03 is the easiest to work with, while 06 is probably the driest and less even one, which is perfectly normal, as darker shades are (almost) always harder to use.
Despite being so creamy, these pencils last forever: once they’re dry, they don’t budge until you take them off. They don’t smudge or get on your teeth, which makes them a very foolproof bold lip option.
If you’re in the market for a new lip liner I highly recommend these ones. KIKO’s collections always go on sale at the end of the season, so they’re going to be even more of a bargain in about a month.
Have you tried these or any other products from the Rebel Romantic collection? Do you ever wear lip liner on its own?
