Everyone seems to be going down the Vegan path these days and although it’s not for me I think it’s great that cosmetic brands are doing their bit too. So Kat Von D has relaunched her popular Studded Kiss lipstick range and claims it’s an even better Vegan lipstick range with the creamiest, most cushiony and unbelievably pigmented. There are 3 different finishes; satin-matte, glimmer and metallic and a total of 40 shades.
I tried out all three finishes to see if they really are the creamiest, most cushiony and unbelievably pigmented lipsticks ever. Here are my thoughts.
SATIN-MATTE – This really is very well pigmented and it feels silky and smooth on the lips. I preferred the finish of it after a couple of hours wear as it was less satin and more matte but then that’s my personal preference. It felt cushiony on the lips and creamy enough for me to notice.
GLIMMER – The pigment is not as good as the satin matte. It lasts well on the lips however I do feel you need to put balm on before hand. I personally don’t like the finish but again that’s a personal preference. I feel like it’s more of a dull glitter than a shimmer.
METALLIC – Definitely would not be my choice but I’m sure some people would like it. I generally don’t like Metallic finish with lipsticks and think if you’re opting for Metallic finish then why not go for a high pigment liquid lipstick formula than a stick form. The pigment is less than the Glimmer finish so don’t expect too much of a color payoff. Again you need to moisturize your lips before but I guess that goes for any lipstick. Feels comfortable on the lips but eventually feels dry.
My personal favorite is Lolita II…image below.
