Hello beautiful ladies,
I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter and a well deserved break if you were able to get the long weekend off work. I apologise for the lack of posts in the last month and I appreciate all of you that have been so patient with me. I’m hoping to get back into my normal routine now of posting Tuesdays and Fridays.
I have been asked (quite some time ago) to swatch the Kat Von D lipsticks I had photographed on Instagram so I decided to swatch my collection on my blog rather than change my feed. I usually just post swatches on My Story but again, it can be missed.
From top to bottom: Studded Kiss Lipstick
Noble: pink nude with a matte finish. I really love this colour because it matches so many different eye looks without overpowering them. The perfect pink nude for my skin tone.
Lolita II (limited edition): warm medium brown with a matte finish. This colour is great for the cooler months when I use deeper shades. This will become a winter staple.
Cathedral: chocolate brown with a matte finish. This colour turned out darker than I was expecting but I’ve been using it as an ombre look with a lighter shade in the centre to make it a bit less overpowering.
Noble and Lolita II apply smoothly and evenly on my lips but I found Cathedral to be patchy and required quite a bit of effort. I would recommend a lip liner with this one. This range doesn’t have a long wear and does need touching up throughout the day.
Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
Bow N Arrow: cool brown nude with a matte finish. Omg, this is the most perfect drama nude (there’s a range of nudes that have their place) I’ve come across so far. Its darker than my usual lip colour but I love the slight dramatic feel it gives my looks.
The everlasting liquid lipstick does just that – it stays on. Compared to the studded kiss range, I would reach for this one more just because I don’t have to reapply. It is slightly drying (I use lip balm before applying) but if you’ve ever tried Kylie or Colourpop, then you’ll think this is gold.
From top to bottom: Everlasting Liquid Lipstick minis (all matte finishes)
Lovesick: mauve nude
Mother: mauve pink
Backstage Bambi: hot pink
L.U.V. : violet
Roxy: deep purple
Echo: navy blue
Santa Sangre: cherry red
Plath: rich warm brown
I think I bought this set more because it was so cute because so far I’ve only worn Lovesick and to be honest, its probably the only one I will wear. As you can see with these swatches too, some of the colours are quite patchy and I tried my hardest not to have patchy colours. Plath and Backstage Bambi definitely performed the best out of these colours.
So, while I love the gorgeous packaging of the studded kiss lipsticks, my go to out of the Kat Von D lipsticks is the everlasting liquid lipstick in Bow N Arrow. This shade would even make it into my top 5 nudes (and that’s saying something because I have what seems like 50 at least).
If you’ve made it this far, I thank you and I really do appreciate your support, even when I have been so busy that I’ve neglected my blog.
Until next time,
