Review: Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick

I’ve been eyeing all of the Kat Von D products (the foundation, the contour palette, the perfumes) for such a long time and I was literally over the moon when I’ve got my PR sample of the Studded Kiss Lipstick! I’m telling you, the excitement was so real!


The full price of the lipstick is $21, which stays more on the higher end. As far as I know, it could be found in Sephora (or Debenhams for those in the UK). For the price point, I’m going to compare it to my MAC lipstick in terms of how it applies and wears throughout the day.


First, let’s appreciate the packaging! It’s gorgeous, in my opinion, and you could definitely notice the KVD personality in it. There’s this beautiful stamp on the lid, and it could be also found on the full sized lipstick itself. The only thing that I don’t fancy about the packaging is that the cap is a bit loose and opens too easily. But I can live with it, I guess 😀


The shade is stuuuuning! I’ve got my lipstick in Cathedral, which is such a lovely mauve shade! It stays wonderfully on my skin tone, especially now when I’m a little bit tanned. It’s amazing for wearing both in day light and for a night out. It quickly became one of my favourite shades, and I couldn’t find a dupe of it in my collection.

Now, in terms of the quality… truth to be told, I’m a little bit disappointed. Probably I’ve had higher expectations, because of the sound of the brand.

For example, it’s not kiss-proof and it’s very easy to  be smudged everywhere. It fades fairly quickly from the middle of the lips, especially if eating or drinking (or even just talking). My MAC lipstick definitely performs better, and in terms of staying power, I kind of expected a little bit more.

Now, I can’t lie, it stays and feels beautifully on the lips! It has a matte finish, but at the same time it’s not super drying and makes your lips look almost velvety! Here I can also compare it to MAC, and both perform equally well!

Would I buy more shades of the Kat Von D lipstick? Perhaps not at the moment, I don’t really need any more but for the price, I’d prefer another MAC lipstick or even invest a little bit more and get a Charlotte Tilbury one.

Is it worth trying? Yes, absolutely! It’s a lovely shade and the packaging especially makes it worthy for your make up collection.

Thank you for staying with me for this lipstick review! Have you ever tried any Kat Von D product and if not, which one would you like?

    I’m a bit in love with purples and mauve shades at the moment, but I have my eye on KvD’s ‘Saint and Sinner’ eyeshadow palette! xx

    That shade looks absolutely stunning! I have one Kat Von D studded kiss lipstick too, but it’s really purple which just doesn’t look good on me (when I swatched it to my hand it looked beautiful nude) 🙁 xx

      Oh no! That’s happened to me a few times as I really don’t wait to try ‘public’ lipsticks on my lips. 🙁
