Kat Von D has a new line of beautiful lipsticks out now in a range of 30 gorgeous colors. The Studded Kiss Lipsticks ($21) will catch your eye simply with the packaging alone. The tubes are black shiny plastic with a studded texture.
The color choices are a little on the vampy side as you may expect from Kat Von D. There’s a good selection of reds and deep wines with a few very interesting shades mixed in, including a black and a navy!
I decided to try out Lovecraft, described online as a matte mauve pink nude. The first thing I noticed when it came was the smell. Oh my goodness! It smells so good, just like a delicious vanilla cake!
The formula is soft and creamy so it easily glides across my lips. It gives my lips opaque coverage with just one swipe! The color is very much a nude pink with just a hint of mauve to it.
The finish is definitely matte all the way. It doesn’t feel drying on my lips at all though or make them feel tight. You could easily top this one with a light nude gloss for a bit of shine if you’d like.
I don’t find this to be a very long wearing matte lipstick though. It easily wears off with eating and drinking so it will need reapplied throughout the day.
Overall I’m pretty much in love with this one. The color is perfect for everyday wear and I get great color payoff and complete coverage.
