Current Obsession: Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick

Kat was particularly excited about her new Studded Kiss Lipstick (as well as her current classical music obsession), but I admit I was personally skeptical of the new lipsticks—mainly because I can count the number of times I've worn real lipstick this past year on one hand. But as a loyal user of her Ink Liner (seriously, can't put it down), I was willing to give the lipstick a shot. And I am so glad I did. 

The Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick collection consists of 30 brilliant shades of lip color ($21 each) divided into three categories: The Classics, The Reds and The Pops. This July, she released 12 new shades to her already popular line, including Coven, a light matte lavender (pictured below); Sexer, an iridescent fluorescent pink; and Poe, a shimmery navy she named after her cat.

I'm currently still enthralled with her cult fave shade Lovecraft, a matte mauve pink, for its slightly darker than nude pop of color. I find myself applying this hue before big meetings, mid-week happy hours and before Sunday brunch. It's truly a good basic shade for every occasion. With that said, even this basic non-lipstick wearer is crushing on the new lovely lavender color, Coven. (I think we know what my next Sephora purchase will be.)

Not only do these lipsticks come in highly pigmented hues fit for every skin type, but they are formulated with vitamins A, C and E to leave lips feeling hydrated and supple. Most importantly, however, they smell like crème brûlée for an even sweeter payoff. What can I say, a lipstick that got even a non-lipstick wearing sweet-tooth to apply and reapply has got to be doing something right, no?
