Review: Welcoming New Kat Von D Lippies
Kat Von D's new Fall shades in her Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks have been sold out for quite some time. Right when I got the 'in stock' notification on my phone, I quickly added the items to my cart and in doing so bumped into a pole as I was walking to work. T'was worth, and now y'all get a review!
Swatches left to right: Beloved, Melancholia, Mother, Bow N Arrow
1) Mother (Currently sold out) - You'll be impressing everyone and their mothers with this gorgeous dusty mauve pink -- the spawn of Sephora's 13 Marvelous Mauve and Kat Von D's Bauhau5. Mother compliments all complexions and provides the perfect pop of colour, while still muted enough for everyday office wear.
Yay or Nay? Yay, only if you don't already have Marvelous Mauve, Bauhau5, or a similar shade. Let's be real, $24+tax is a lot for a shade twin.
2) Bow N Arrow (Currently sold out) - Bow N Arrow is very picky with who she makes friends with. This shade is hard to pull off and I haven't decided if I can or not. If you have a paler complexion, pair it with some blush and a smokey eye and you'll be shooting men right in their tracks. Otherwise, you'll look half dead.
Yay or Nay? Yay if you're a true 90s baby, don't have brown lips naturally, and on the fairer side.
3) Beloved (Currently sold out) - Easily my favourite shade out of the bunch. The coral is soft enough that I'm not afraid to wear it out in public (unlike Sephora's 04 Coral Crush). This is a must-have in your purse, and is great all year round.
Yay or Nay? Absolutely yay! All you need is one layer and then get ready to pucker up.
4) Melancholia (Currently NOT sold out) - I love love love this shade! Not sure why it was named what it was, as it's the complete opposite of deep sadness and gloom. It's a classic pale, mod pink that makes you appear more tanned.
Yay or Nay? Yay, only if you don't suffer from chronic dry lips. Exfoliate prior to application, or your lip lines will be very prominent. Also, who doesn't want to look more tanned in the middle of winter?
I recommend adding your email to the waitlist online at Sephora so you're notified the moment the lippies are back in stock. Let me know in the comments which ones were your faves!
Now off to Turks & Caicos!!!
