At the beginning of the year, Kat Von D re-released her Studded Kiss lipstick line with a new and improved formula and an expanded shade range. When I received this lippie, complimentary from Influenster, I was very curious at how different the new formula is compared to the old one. So without further ado, let's find out!
The new Kat Von D Studded Kiss Creme Lipsticks* (CAD $23) are said to combine "super-creamy colour and weightless comfortable long wear." The new formula is supposed to be creamier and more pigmented and the shade range is a lot larger than before. I received the shade Misfit, which was not a shade that was available in the old Studded Kiss line.
This product is formulated without parabens and is not tested on animals.
The new Kat Von D bullet has the same edgy and chic studded packaging as the old lippies, with the exception of the colour of the barrel. The old lipsticks had a silver barrel the contained the lipstick while the new barrels are black. The packaging is very sturdy, so you can throw one of these into your purses without any worries.
One lipstick has 0.12 oz of product.
Kat Von D has truly outdid herself with this reformulation. The new Studded Kiss Creme lipsticks are much creamier than the old formula - they glide on effortlessly onto the lips with zero tug. This is a huge improvement from the old lipsticks as the old formula did tug on the lips when being applied and was a tad bit drying on the lips. This formula is also feels very moisturizing on the lips. By the end of a 6-hour wear test, my lips did not feel dehydrated whatsoever.
The shade Misfit is a beautiful and vibrant scarlet red. The colour lasts for about 4-5 hours on the lips before fading is noticeable. Reapplication is super easy as the product does not build-up or get cakey on the lips.
To say that I am obsessed with this new formula would be an understatement. The new Kat Von D Studded Kiss Creme lipsticks are creamy, rich, and extremely pigmented. They last for a very decent amount of time on the lips and fades beautifully. I will most definitely be picking up more shades from this line, and I highly recommend everyone else to pick a few of these gems up as well.
