The packaging of the “Unlimited Double Touch” lip color by Kiko Milano is refined and elegant. The lipstick itself comes in an oval transparent double tube with the Kiko logo on it. On one end of the tube there the base lip color, and on the other end there is a transparent liquid that gives a glossy top coat finish. As for the brushes, there are two applicator blushes on each side of the tube. On the side of the base coat, it is spongy and has a flocked-tip for easy application, and the one on the top coat end of the tube, the brush is flat. The size of the “Unlimited Double Touch” lip gloss is rather larger and take up too much space in a wallet-on-chain or a clutch.
This lipstick comes in 24 shades, some are nude like “Soft Rose” and “Satin Rosy Beige” while other are darker-toned and come in shades of red, fuchsia, and plum like “Cherry Red”, “Hot Pink” and “Satin Grape.”
Rosy Mauve, a burnt rose color.
The base and top coats of the lipstick are liquid and are easy to apply as they glide on the lips.
This lipstick has a somewhat strong “sugared-donut” smell that can be annoying for those who have a sensitive nose.
When the base coat dries on the lips, it has a clean and matte finish. The color was well pigmented, so applying only one layer of the basecoat was enough. The advantage of this lipstick is that it can be used for both: matte, and glossy finishes. Applying the glossy top coat was easy, and simple as it is not sticky.
When it comes to wearability, the website claims that it lasts for “up to eight hours” and that it is “smudge-proof”. However, after testing the product, we noticed that the color does fade when eating or drinking. It does not wear off completely but will need to be retouched. Without eating or drinking, we found that it lasted a good 6 hours. we noticed that the color tends to fade and wear off when eating/drinking, so application needs retouching.
This lipstick comes in a 2 x 0.10 fl.oz container and retails at 16.5$ in Lebanon. The price is competitive given the two options (matte and glossy) it offers, and the size of the container. Compared to NYX Professional Makeup’ Lip Lingerie which retails at $7 for 0.13 fl.oz, “Unlimited Double Touch” is a bargain.
