As promised, here is my review for the new Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipsticks that I purchased. I figured these three shades work the best with my skin tone, especially any color that's within the orchid family. I'm really tempted to buy a few of the earthy fleshy shades next. Sephora sent me a VIB Rouge gift certificate in my email allowing me to buy the extra two saving me money so that was an added plus. Some of the colors are from her permanent collection and the only quality which differs may be the formula and the fabulous rock n roll studded lipstick case. Rock on! Stay Beautiful! XOXO
An innovative lipstick that coats lips with bold color,10-hour wear, and luxe comfort. Drench your lips with bold color and unstoppable femininity. Designed to look as rock ‘n roll as its wearer, this revolutionary, hybrid lipstick is formulated with Color Cushion Technology that combines 10-hour wear, one-swipe payoff, and velvet touch comfort. This color-true lipstick leaves lips supple, and its wide color spectrum offers stunning shades, including red for every skintone, statement-making colors, and classic, everyday neutrals. Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss Lipstick is infused with vitamins A, C, and E, an antioxidant complex that leaves lips feeling soft, and the Crème Brûlée scent provides a subtle, sweet experience when you apply it. Designed by Kat to resemble one of her favorite bracelets, the black, monochromatic casing is uniquely studded and topped with her KVD monogram on the outer crown and bullet.
Formula: Firstly, the lipstick is stamped with her KVD initials and scented with a sweet creamy vanilla caramel flavor. The taste stays on the lips for a long time even though it dissipates during wear. I chose the shades Wonderchilde (iridescent orchid, same as the polish) Wolvesmouth (irridescent berry) and Lullabye (iridescent shimmering magenta violet). While they all have a gleam, Lullabye is the only one with actual glitter although the glitter is micro-fine. I also want to mention that Wolvesmouth isn't a bright berry but more like a deep berry/wine color. I love them all but Wonderchilde is my favorite! It has a gorgeous blue/violet shift effect. The formula here is moist yet not slick, I feel it could use more moisture but I guess with strong hold lipsticks they tend to be slightly drier because of the long wear. I'm glad I didn't buy any matte shades because those are probably drier and need to be worn with a lip primer or some type of balm underneath. The staying power is super! They last all day without bleeding and when the shimmer starts to dull your lips still have that nice stain look. The lipstick case is so sexy! It's a fat thick plastic studded case that captures the light with the way the pattern is designed all over. Love it! I usually don't get that excited about lipsticks but these are really amazing and less the cost than the designer brands found in a department store. They're definitely worth the splurge!
