Trust Sugarpill to come out with ridiculously cute packaging. It looks like an adorable toy! When I opened it to have a cheeky play, I was a bit concerned with the applicator- it looks quite shaggy. Thankfully, it doesn't compromise on getting clean lines, and applying the colour is actually really easy. This is mostly because the doe foot is shaped so it hugs the curves the lips while you glide it along. It's a sensual experience, not gonna lie.
And speaking of senses- the product smells like donuts. Honestly. Yum.

And there's ya swatch! What a unique shade. Its a pastel mauve-grey which is definitely a 'statement' colour (on my skintone anyway) despite bring pale. I personally love it as it is, but you could easily pair it with a purple lipliner to make it more wearable.
Now, Kimchi is supposed to have subtle aqua shimmer. On application, it doesn't come through at all. It looks pretty much like a standard matte shade. But rub your lips together, or run your finger lightly over it, and the sparkle shyly comes to say hi. To be honest I would have preferred it had the shimmer been more obvious, but it does become more and more sparkly the longer your wear it. Talking, drinking tea, kissing your cats etc... these things increase the pretty.
As for comfort, it's a straight 10/10. Lightweight, longwearing and not the least bit drying. Sugarpill, you guys smashed it! Well worth the $18.
