When the Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipsticks (CAD $26, now $15) went on sale, I probably looked like the kid who got her dream Christmas gift. I was sitting on my couch, screaming at my housemates to get on Sephora since they're equally obsessed with makeup. Unfortunately, I was quickly reminded that I was on a no-buy, but THANKFULLY, my sister ended up picking one up for me in-stores to add to my collection. Keep reading for my review on these studs (haha get it?)

The three shades I have are:
KVD lipsticks are infused with an antioxidant complex, leaving the lips soft. They are formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
The Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipsticks are housed in a super chic black plastic studded case. These aren't the most convenient to carry around because the packaging is a bit bulky, but if you tend to throw your lipsticks in your purse, it shouldn't be a problem. The KVD monogram is embossed on the top of the lid and on the side of the lipstick. A sticker, the colour of the lipstick, with the lipstick's name is on the bottom of the case. Each lippie is 0.10 oz.
The three KVD lipsticks I have are creamy and super pigmented. They apply smoothly and evenly on the lips. I did notice that the matte shade (Lovecraft) applies with a bit more tug on the lips than the two metallic shades. Lovecraft is also a tad bit more drying on the lips. I have to make sure my lips are hydrated before applying Lovecraft to make sure the lipstick doesn't accentuate the flakiness and lines on my lips. However, these are very minor when you compare them to the quality of these lipsticks.
Lovecraft lasts longer on my lips as it is drier, but these typically last about 3-4 hours on the lips before fading. When it comes time to touch-up, these can be easily reapplied on top without it feeling chunky or heavy after.
The KVD lippies are definitely worth picking up while they’re on sale. I'd recommend the metallic and shimmer finishes over the matte ones since they are more comfortable. With the 15% off, these lipsticks are definitely a steal!
