I’ve liked Kat Von D ever since I remember watching her on LA Ink and seeing her amazing tattoo creations and wonderful talent. Therefore, I may have skipped a heartbeat when I found out that her make up line was finally coming to the UK! Although currently only available in one of the stores in London, you can still buy online from the Debenhams website so everything is still pretty great.
I’ve heard such good things about her brand, especially her liquid lipsticks therefore, I was thrilled to receive my first one for my Birthday a few weeks ago. The shade I have is a beautiful bold red called Santa Sangre and is described on Kat’s website as being the colour of poison apple – loving the Snow White reference! Once again, as I’ve mentioned in many of my lipstick reviews, this colour is perfect for all the vintage lovers out there – red is a must!
As soon as I started to apply the lipstick I realized what the hype about the products was all about, it brushed on so smoothly! The shade was truly pigmented, very vibrant and dried ever so quickly. Plus, it didn’t feel uncomfortable on my lips as previous cheaper liquid lipsticks have which shows that a quality product is definitely worth the price. I’ve been wearing the product all day and I must admit, it has stayed on pretty well and doesn’t look crackly, I could get away with not reapplying it. However, it is described as lasting 24 hours and as much as I love the lipstick I definitely don’t see that happening.
At £16 I was pleasantly surprised by the price tag as I assumed it would be a lot more, it’s in the mid range money wise and I definitely think it’s worth it. The packaging is absolutely stunning and such a statement design, you’d know it was Kat Von D’s without reading the label! The lipsticks are also pretty big so you get a lot of product and won’t have to buy one every week – unless it’s another colour of course! I absolutely adore the beautiful bold pattern with the black and silver contrasting one another, you’re not just paying for the lipstick, you’re paying for the stunning design.
Not only is this product a must have but Kat also has stick lipsticks called, “Studded Kiss” which come in a stunning iconic case – I’ve not seen anything like it before! They are priced at £16, have the iconic KVD Logo printed into the lipstick and I definitely hope to try one out and review it for you all in the future! What I also love about her Brand is she really covers a huge variety of shades, ranging from your every day pink or nude to a green or blue! It is also Vegan and Cruelty Free which is absolutely wonderful.
