|01 Lusty Peony|
|05 Heavy Cherry|
Now, let's focus on the colours for a moment - Heavy Cherry is a fairly standard cherry red with a pinkish base, which makes it a little easier to wear than your average blue toned true red. I put it immediately into my 'give away to friends' pile after I swatched it, because I have a lot of lipstick in this kind of shade. Lusty Peony though... it went straight into my handbag, and hasn't yet come out. Kiko are a great source of neutral or cool toned, pink based nude lipsticks - and Lusty Peony is a great example of a nude which isn't too nude, too beige or too golden - it's just a perfect match for a slightly darker or richer toned eye. I LOVE it. If you struggle to find nudes which aren't too beige or too dead or too golden, it's well worth a try. At £6.90, you can't be disappointed.
