I am so sorry for the delay in posts! Just got back from New Orleans a few days ago and I’ve been playing catch up with my life. The trip was amazing, to say the least. My mom and I had a blast – and since the weather was so great, I got to pretend it was really summer for a few days. While there, I also got to revive one of my favorite lip colors that I discovered at the end of last summer, Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss Lipstick in L.U.V. ($21)
Some of you may have seen me rocking it in my About Me page, but I haven’t really had a chance to put it to good use in recent months, since I feel it’s more of a spring / summer hue.
I initially discovered Kat Von D Beauty one day when I was frantically searching for a new red. I had gone to 3 different Sephora locations to find my favorite Stila Liquid Lipstick, but the color I wanted was sold out everywhere! A very kind sales employee at Sephora reassured me that Kat Von D had a very great equivalent in one of it’s reds, I tried it and loved it.
Since then I decided to check out the other colors the brand has to offer and fell in love with the L.U.V. color. I really would never have thought that such a vibrant purple would actually work for everyday wear, but this one really works for my skin tone and it keeps my lips super soft. With a cream based finish, the Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick is formulated with Color Cushion Technology to make sure it doesn’t dry out or cake on your lips. Also, the color is very long lasting and transitions well from day-to-night.
Bonus note, all of the Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipsticks are 100% Cruelty Free with no animal testing, #VeganAlert !
