Sorry for the long hiatus….but I am BACK and ready to talk about some more fantastic products!!
I’m not sure what took me so long but I have finally discovered Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick. I am always on the hunt for a nice, long-lasting lip stain or lipstick but have had some disappointments. As much as I was initially into Lipsense, it has recently fallen out of favor because of its drying effect on my lips. No good.
Bold and Beautiful Lolita!
I actually ended up getting a sample of the Studded Kiss shade ‘Lolita’ at Sephora as a birthday bonus gift. (woohoo!) I noticed right away that the application was very smooth with a very creamy finish. I didn’t give it too much additional thought until I checked my makeup in the mirror much later -and it did not disappoint! The color still looked very bold and beautiful! My lips were still fully hydrated at the end of the day and there was no feathering effect that you sometimes see with other long-wear lip tints. I also noticed the shade was light and breathable.
Smooth and buttery application for the win!
Lolita is the perfect lip shade for professional life but also can fit right in for a night out. I lightly apply for work and then go bolder for evening wear. It does lighten a bit as the day continues and is not completely transfer-proof, but I find it to be very buildable. Reapplication is no issue at all, as it can be with Lipsense. There are no caking problems or uneven application issues. Also it is forgiving enough to allow for easy correction. Studded Kiss is my go-to lipstick of choice at the moment. It’s so smooth and buttery to apply that it almost applies itself. I can’t wait to try more shades in the collection!
Paraben-free, Cruelty-free and Vegan
Also BONUS-Kat Von D is always cruelty free which I pay attention to! Hooray.
