Kat Von D Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick Review - A Bold & Beautiful New Collection

Being bold with one's makeup isn't always easy. It's easy to get comfortable in a routine of the same colours. I've certainly been guilty of it! But sometimes it's fun to shake things up a bit with something a little different!

The one beauty product I don't mind dabbling in different colours with? Lipstick, of course!
I tend to keep my makeup look pretty neutral, for the most part. When you have pink hair, you can let that do most of the talking. But sometimes I like to amp up the drama with a bold, punchy lipstick. Whether that's bright red, hot pink, or even a deeper nude, it's easy to incorporate colour into your everyday style with a new lippie! And when I think bold, I always think of Kat Von D.

The new Kat Von D Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick in 'OG Lolita' - $23 CAD
I've always applauded Kat Von D's line of cosmetics because it exudes originality & creativity. Especially her Studded Kiss Lipstick line. Before it came out, you'd be pretty hard pressed to find 'funky' lipstick shades like green and black, that were of a decent quality.
The gorgeously studded packaging, the literal rainbow of colours, I'm sure I wasn't the only one swooning.
While this lipstick line had it's uniqueness, it certainly had its flaws as well. As much as I loved the shade range, I didn't love the formula; it had a tendency to drag on the lips during application, and felt a bit heavy throughout the day. But I'll be damned if that ever stopped me from wearing iconic shades like Plan 9 (shimmery alien-green), A-Go-Go (flaming neon orange), & Coven (soft yet bold lilac)!

Kat recently announced her much-loved lipstick line was undergoing a reformulation, to not only introduce a creamier texture but to include even more shades! Some of which you might recognize from her Everlasting Liquid Lipstick line! Of course, the packaging remains the same; an iconic black studded tube.
Thanks to the lovely folks at Influenster, I received a new complimentary tube in exchange for my honest review. To say I was psyched is an understatement!

Lolita also happens to be my favourite novel. So this is pretty much a perfect pairing.

I received shade 'OG Lolita', and if you've been following the KVD beauty line religiously, you'll know Lolita is a cult-fave. This particular colour has been reformulated a few times, so Kat (being the genius that she is) decided to include ALL THREE Lolita varieties in this new launch; Lolita, Lolita II, and OG Lolita!

Comparing the old & new formulas, from top: Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in 'Lovecraft', Kat Von D Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick in 'OG Lolita'. I unfortunately don't own any of the previous Lolita formulations (which I'm actually surprised by).
Not only does the new formula glide on easier, I found it is much more pigmented as well.
'OG Lolita' is a gorgeous dusty rose shade. It's very feminine and easy to wear from day to night. I absolutely LOVE the new formula because it glides on so much smoother and feels very lightweight on the lips. The finish is a 'satin-matte', which I find gives it a soft but not flat appearance.
The collection also features 2 other finishes; metallic & shimmer.
And of course, the entire shade range is vegan!

I honestly cannot wait to get my hands on a few more shades, there are so many beautiful and vibrant colours to choose from! And at $23 (CAD) each, it's easy to stock up on these babies.

This new collection is available at Katvondbeauty.com & Sephora (online & in-store, US & Canada) as of today!
