I know you know by now, I love love love Kat Von D. I loved her since her Miami Ink then LA Ink Days, and I love her more now that she's a vegan and she's gradually working on her cosmetics to make them all vegan!
Because my birthday is like a month or so long celebrating, I bought myself an early birthday present. I ordered this back in mid August, but my birthday just passed yesterday, September 3rd! I'm 29, but I'll fight for 25 tooth and nail lol.
I love the pretty black packaging, it's right up my alley lol. First, I got a free mini Tattoo Liner with my purchase. I'm excited to try it, I haven't yet, but I'll review it when I do!
First, I got this:
You guys already know this perfume is my jam. I decided to splurge on the medium size, and I just love the design of the bottle. It's so friggin pretty. I'll probably never throw the bottle away even after when it's empty lol. I do wish, considering the price, that the design on the bottle we're made from something other than plastic, it takes a beautiful design and makes it look a little cheap, but that's not really a deal breaker since clearly, it doesn't change how wonderful the perfume smells! It was $65 for 1.7 fl oz which is about average for the type of perfume in that higher end range. I love it!
Lastly, I bought this:
've mentioned before that I'm not really a lipstick girl. But, I've been trying some new things and some new looks, and I figured $19 for two half sizes of lipstick isn't bad. Furthermore, the one color is the one I was look at full sized, which is $20 for one. The colors are Melancholia, which is a rose blush, and Susperia, which is an purple shade. It's like a deep raspberry with a hint of purple. These shades were matched to so you you can do this pretty ombré type of look. I can't say I've tried that but I have tried the lipsticks. And I'm ready to review them!
Here's each shade individually:
I would never wear Melancholia (left) alone, way too light, but Susperia (right) I've been wearing alone often. And if you want get like a lighter shade, you just mix them. Take a little bit of Susperia, apply that first and let it dry for about a minute, then apply little by little of Melancholia, mush your lips together, and voila! These lipsticks dry pretty fast, so it's a quick process. You can do the ombré look this way too. Here's my ombre look I created, which is darker than the one on the box, because I prefer it darker than lighter.
These lipsticks are matte, not my favorite but they're not drying. I do apply lip balm, a little, and that does the trick. The staying power is pretty impressive too. I now want them in all the colors. I want black and orange for Halloween, since I'm gonna be the Pumpkin Queen! I would love to do an ombré look with those colors!
I've taken a few different photos of me wearing them, and I gotta say, I really love how bold the colors are, and how they make me feel. I always heard a bold lip increases your confidence, and I can honestly say I agree with that now!
I love these small sizes, they're perfect for your bag, since they're minis. This combo pack was only like $20. What a deal!
My vote: 👍🏼 Get yourself some!
