Hello, dear readers!

 

For a long time, I was telling myself that I won’t write a review of these lipsticks. And the reasons for that were rather earthy - at first I was too lazy, then I actually started to doubt whether I needed to write about them or not. After that, I remembered I lost their packaging somewhere and here we are.

Now I decided that I can’t keep quiet and have to tell about these lippies to the world. Here is a set of minis from Kat Von D Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick!

As you have already seen from the picture, I have 4 of them. But I have to tell you that I used to have 6 shades but I just can’t find 2 of them now.

 

Packaging: it’s a small plastic case which is color-coded with the lipstick inside.

And here, I start being picky. You see, when I look at these lippies, it always feels like kid’s makeup, that costs big bucks, by the way.

 

Price: I have no idea and even feel lazy to google the price of the set because I was presented with it. But I know that a full-sized lippie from Kat costs $20!

Size: 3.4g for the full-size, while my minis have 1g each.

Shades: #BABE, #ZIGGY, #CRUSH, #ROXY, #ZERO, #OZZY

 

What do they say about the product:

See and feel the difference instantly. Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick features a high-chroma content for pure, vivid color in a revolutionary new base formula that’s crystal clear, super-soft and virtually weightless. Made with smooth spherical pigments and lip-nourishing ingredients, it’s never been easier to coat your lips in creamy, comfortable color.

My thoughts:

 

1. #BABE

This is one of the piggiest pink shades that I’ve ever had. Distracting from the color, that doesn’t flatter me, I can say that the product applies well and covers my natural lip color fully.

What bothers me about it is the dry and not-gliding application. I used to have another lipstick from some brand with almost the same characteristics and it didn’t last long with me. It quickly found its way to the trash bin.

 

2. #ZIGGY

KVD Lipsticks aren’t said to be lip tints. But they stay on really well.

 

3. #CRUSH

The small stick is more convenient than the big one! By the way, this shade is said to be satin-matte but it’s difficult to assess because I always wear them over a lip balm that devours all the matte finish. It’s tough to apply over non-prepped lips, alas.

 

4. #ROXY

The lipstick does dry out my lips a lot. I haven’t found an adequate lip liner for this shade and others, so don’t be scared to see my pathetic lining.

Oh, Gosh!

I’ve found the other two shades!

Let’s have a look at them too:

 

5. #OZZY

I tried to apply it over my nude lips but the lip edges gave me some shock, so it took me some time to tame it. By the way, in the picture, this shade seems weird. In life, it appears more mauve or even lavender, while here it’s more like a dead-pale lilac (maybe that’s because of me not wiping the previous lippie off thoroughly).

 

6. #ZERO

The wear time of the lipsticks is phenomenal. They stay put the entire day and never stain anything. I love kissing people’s cheeks. Smile

 

What do I get to say about these lipsticks? As all other makeup from Kat Von D that I’ve tried, these ones are perfect for media people, I think. If you’re part of a performance or take photo shoots a lot, you’ll fall for them. They are not good for daily wear, but it’s never been aimed at that either.

I give it 5 stars and a thumb up!

 

Thanks for your attention!
