Kat Von D Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick Review: Cathedral

Hello friends! It feels so good to be writing on my blog again. I moved to Virginia a week ago, and I am already getting ready to move to Missouri in just a few weeks. Life has thrown me a curveball, and I’m pretty damn overwhelmed. More on that in a later post. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Anyways, today I am going to be reviewing theย  new Kat Von D Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick. This is a reformulation of the original Studded Kiss lineup. I have partnered with Influenster and received a PR sample in exchange for an honest review. If you haven’t head of Influenster, definitely check it out! You really don’t need to be an “influencer” to review products; you just need to have a passion for sharing your opinions. Click here to find out more.ย Anyways, I was very excited to see that I would be receiving this lipstick, because I had never tried any makeup from Kat Von D. Her Lock-It Tattoo Foundation is on my to-buy list, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet. I figured this lipstick would be a good way for me to gauge the quality of her products, and I can continue purchasing from her if I enjoy it.

The Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick range contains 40 shades in 3 finishes: satin-matte, glimmer, and metallic. One of the shades, “White Out”, is a pure-white mixer and can be used to create customized shades. The entire range is vegan, and each lipstick costs $19. I received the shade Cathedral, which is a satin-matte coco rose.

I received a little pamphlet that shows the other colors in the range. There are a lot of shades! I just wish there were more blue lipsticks. I adore a blue lip, and it would be nice to see a cerulean, a sky blue, a midnight blue, or maybe an electric blue. I understand blue isn’t a traditional lipstick color, but it would be nice to have more options besides navy (Poe).ย  That being said, I can see about 15 shades that I want in my lipstick collection RIGHT NOW!

I usually don’t pay much attention to lipstick boxes, but this one was quite cute! It had little studs embedded in the cardboard, and it was embossed with a gorgeous Gothic font.

The shade color and name was on top of the box.

The lipstick tube is also studded, and it looks quite unique. I appreciate that it stands out from all my other lipsticks!

The top is embossed with the Kat Von D logo.

Look at how gorgeous this lipstick is! It looks lighter and rosier than the color shown on the box, but it applies much darker.

Here is Cathedral, swatched on my hand. This went on opaque in one swipe, and it had a gorgeously creamy feel!

Here is Cathedral, swatched on my lips. HOLY smokes, this formula is incredible. It is so creamy and cushiony, and it just makes my lips feel amazingly plush. I did notice that it feathered a little bit near my Cupid’s Bow. I would recommend using a lip liner with these lipsticks if you want a precise line.

I worked the Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick into my makeup of the day. I kept the rest of my makeup light and simple, and let my lips steal the show.

Okay, let’s talk about what I loved about the Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick, and what wasn’t so great. First of all, I love how creamy the formula is! It felt like a dream, and I could definitely justify paying $19 for this product. I also thought the shade Cathedral was gorgeous. I didn’t like that it feathered into my Cupid’s Bow, but using a little lip liner is an easy fix. I also wasn’t too keen on the smell. If you guys have been following me for a while, you know I’m a bit weird about the way makeup smells.

I found that it was quite long-lasting! I applied it around noon, and it lasted until 4:00 p.m. It probably would have lasted even longer, but I ate a snack and needed to reapply afterwards.

Overall, I really loved the Studded Kiss Creme Lipstick, and I would like to add some more of the shades to my collection. Let me know if you try one out for yourself! I hope you found this review helpful. ๐Ÿ™‚
