Lipstick -Kat Von D -Everlasting Liquid Lipstick - Lovesick

This is my favorite liquid lipstick. This is my go to shade for neutral looks, it is a beautiful matte soft pink/mauve. It dries pretty quickly and lasts unless I eat something kinda greasy. Without eating I'd say it goes around 6 hours without needing a touch up, and it's the least drying brand of liquid lipstick I own. I pick up an extra nearly every time I go to Sephora!

Palettes -Kat Von D -Metal Matte

Probably my favorite palette from KVD. I love her metal formula and the sheer size and variety of the metal shades really made this palette worth it. I’m not a huge fan of her mattes when compared to some of the best matte formulas out there(Makeup Geek, Viseart, etc) but the lighter shades seem to be good(those are the only shades I like from the Shade + Light). The deeper shades definitely need some primer and patience though it’s nowhere near as bad as subculture. I love the colors and variety and this palette has been super versatile to create any look I wanted. However if you die for warm tones, this probably isn’t the best palette for you. I really wish this was a permanent part of her line!

Not satisfied at all. Half of the colors are ok the other half horibble. The matte blue and green shades are patchy, the black meah, also patchy, the mauve shades are ok-ish. I did not understand why tthis palette had 2 shades of white, for me one would have been enough The only shade that i love is Velvet. The metal shades are ok, the only one that I hate is Tinsel because of the fallouts, big chunky particles of glitter (I hate having glitter all over my face). Thank God that she only released with the mini palette the great shades from this one. Had great expectation but I was so disapointed of the quality of the palette.


Liquid -Kat Von D -Lock-It Foundation

My other favorite foundation other then Giorgio Armani, this is def. a drying foundation so put on some hydrating primer or do what I do and mix it with farsali gold oil. It does give you acne if you leave it on, so make sure to take it all off when you're going to bed :) if you have dry skin like I do make sure to exfoliate before putting it on and be sure to mix It with something hydrating


Blush -Kat Von D -Bellisima

This is, hands down, my favorite blush of all time! I have been using it for about 3 years, and being the makeup addict that I am, I have tried many other blushes along the way, but I always end up going back to Kat Von D in Bellisima. It has become a staple in my everyday makeup kit. It is a beautiful peachy pink blush that leaves a velvety finish. The color is buildable and it gives my fair, neutral-but-leaning-more-on-the-cool-side skin a beautiful glow. I absolutely LOVE the stuff!

While the price is a bit steep at around $25, depending on where you buy it, it lasts a long time. After 3 years, I still have yet to reach the bottom. I also like packaging. It's square and black, but with a certain gothic flair that stands out from other compacts. I highly recommend this blush!

Lipstick -Kat Von D -Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita

The color is a bit darker than I expected, but I love this a lot. It doesn't budge the whole day, unless you eat something really oily. I always take care of my lips before I put this on. I scrub and put on lipbalm then put this on. I also like to put this in layers. I put on thin layer first, put my lips together to spread it. After that, put another thin layer. I never have issues with over-drying if I do those steps. It doesn't feel like I am wearing anything. I am always surprised when I look myself in the mirror a couple hours after I put this on and it's still there full on color.

Contour -Kat Von D - Shade + Light Crème Contour Refillable Palette

foto

If you're a WOC I would be careful. Especially if you're warm toned on top of that. It'll pull very grey and look muddy or dirty. Go with abh I really wish I did plus that one has more product in it.

The lasting power is great it lasts all day in mild or cold weather at least. The blendability is good but not too slippery or bendable that you would lose the effect.

I only use the darkest shade on my cheeks as a blending color when I add my other color. I'll also use the middle shade on my nose but the rest of the palette is unusable for me. I'm not going to return it because I genuinely need this to work and I like the staying power but I wouldn't recommend unless you're lighter than an nc40.

Palettes -Kat Von D -Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette

It took me a while to purchase this palette as I had the Naked 2 basics, Tarte Matte, and the Viseart matte palette. All of the aforementioned are fine, but I had dislikes about each of them. However this one is something special!

The warm quad in this palette isn’t TOO warm, the neutral is neutral, and the cool isn’t TOO cool. Viseart has too many warm colors for my liking. Naked 2 basic colors are great, but the pigmentation wasn’t great. The Tarte matte had decent shades, but the formula falls short for me.

This palette has both great shades and pigmentation. These shadows last a full 12 hour shift for me. Great Great Great for my hooded eyes. I seriously can carve a good looking crease!

Overall this is a great palette. As with everything, I feel the cost is too high but compared to the Viseart it is a fair price for a basic workhorse palette. I only purchase makeup when I can catch a sale. I can’t say I’ve ever seen Kat von d have a sale on her palettes on her website, so the biannual Sephora sale is when I purchased it. With that being said, now that I have tried it I must admit this is one of those items I would pay full retail for and that is a rarity for me to say!

Lipstick -Kat Von D -Everlasting Liquid Lipstick - Lovecraft

Color is sort of cool dusty rose, works very well with my fair skin. Awesome texture; feels a bit sticky for the first 15 minutes, then sort of sinks in. Stays on super well; stays on all work day and didn't need to reapply even after 3 course meal with drinks.

Eyeliner -Kat Von D -Tattoo Liner

The first time I bought this, I loved it. I had Mad Max and it was a beautiful dark brown and the pen style made it really easy to apply. It was dark and even and lasted almost three months with daily use.

Then I bought the black online, and it was dry and patchy and faded. A fellow makeup lover classmate told me that happens sometimes with this liner, but it's still the best. I bought Mad Max online and same thing!!

As a final test, I bought Mad Max in store to make sure it wasn't just because I had been buying online and that was the cause of those issues and unfortunately, it's the same thing. Patchy and dry. I'm really disappointed, I don't know if the first time I used it it was a fluke or the formula happened to change but I'm done wasting my money trying to make this product work

I don't know enough about perfume to be able to write complicated reviews but I so rarely find fragrances I love that I had to write about this one. This is one of those delicious scents that at first blush seems like a creamy floral but give it a second and a gourmand reveals itself with caramel-y vanilla, sweet juicy fruit and zingy citrus to balance out the sweetness. There's also enough of a hint of musk to keep this from being cloying from the sweetness but you don't notice musk as an individual note. I took off one lippie due to the fact that the sillage + longevity are both underwhelming. But the fragrance itself, I can't get enough of. Now I'm curious to check out Sinner too....

Palettes -Kat Von D -Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette

I've had this palette for a while and at first I really loved it, but the more I use it, the more I realize that the some of the shadows are kinda chalky and hard to blend out. Some of them go on a little patchy as well. I also don't like that there are a lot of similar shades in the palette- I don't think there needed to be a highlight shade in every quad in the palette. However, there are shades that I really do love in the palette- Lazarus, Saleos, Shax (extremely black), and Succubus. I like that it's all matte.

I'm conflicted as to whether I'd buy this again. As mentioned, I like the unique grey toned shades but I don't feel that there's enough of a variety of different shades. It's really not a bad palette- you have to be careful about which brushes you use, which primer you use (I tried using one of the lighter cream colored shades with the white NYX jumbo pencil and had to remove it because it was so patchy), and some shadows will require more blending than others. Overall, I think it's a good palette if you really like matte and neutral shadows, but I do think there are better formulas on the market.

Lipstick -Kat Von D -Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick in Ophelia

on 2/7/2018 7:37:00 PM

I've been looking for a nice clay-pinky nude to replace my Maybelline Daringly Nude, which looks beautiful but wears very badly on me - and this is the one!

I don't wear liquid lipstick because I have dry lips to begin with, so I'm glad that Ophelia has been brought out in a creme lipstick, because it's such a beautiful shade. It's more clay/brown than pink, but it's not too orange. The formula is gorgeous, and very comfortable. It's so, so good. Haven't tried the old Studded Kiss formula, but this new one is great. The wear time is pretty good, and the way it wears is flattering thanks to the shade (I'm light olive), but it doesn't last through pizza, that much I know for sure.

The packaging is cool, and the lid doesn't come off easily like the old lipstick lids used to. Although - the first lipstick I bought, the bullet fell out of the base after the first use, so I returned it and got a new one. The smell is vanilla-y, very like MAC lipsticks but a little less refined, perhaps - doesn't matter, because the smell dissipates pretty quickly.

It is good temporarily, for it does create a really nice wing with great pigmentation the first couple weeks of owning it but it quickly turns dull and the tip dries out making it impossible to create a thin wing.
