Akoko is described as a fuchsia red. It looks different on my lips than in the pan though, it's a sheer berry red with a satin-matte finish. The staying power is surprisingly good for such a sheer lip color, but the texture isn't really my cup of tea. It feels a bit waxy and it's hard to build up the color.

That being said, this lip color can also be used as a blush and I immediately fell in love with the color when I applied it on my cheeks. Akoko gives a translucent berry flush, it's gorgeous and it last all day! The texture is a bit waxy on the cheeks too but it doesn't feel overly greasy. I simply apply it with my fingers and it blends easily!

You will like it if you love a sheer lip color, but I personnally prefer a highly pigmented and opaque lipstick. To me it feels more like a tinted lip balm than a true lipstick. I did love it as a cheek stain though and I'm glad I gave it a try because I know it will be on my cheeks quite often this fall!

The Boxx Cosmetics Lip Color in Akoko retail for $18 CDN for 1.5g.
