Kat Von D Lullabye Studded Kiss Lipstick
Kat Von D Lullabye Studded Kiss Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “sparkling iridescent magenta violet.” It’s a vibrant, fuchsia pink with cool-toned, magenta-fuchsia shimmer/sheen that gives it a slightly metallic sheen over a matte finish. Melt Cosmetics Shady Lady (P, $19.00) has no shimmer. Too Faced Melted Fuchsia (P, $21.00) has no shimmer, brighter. MAC Pink Poodle (DC, $16.00) is glossier. MAC Midnight Mambo (LE, $22.00) is less matte. Revlon Lollipop (P, $7.49) is sheerer, glossier, more muted. Milani Violet Volt (P, $5.49) is purpler, more shimmery. MAC Show Orchid (P, $16.00) is less matte. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Yaoi (P, $18.00) is pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
The consistency was very lightly creamy-just enough that it didn’t tug or drag and the color went on evenly–and yielded rich, opaque color coverage. The texture was lightweight, thin, a little clingy (but not in an uncomfortable way), and I didn’t feel the shimmer/sparkle in the shade while I wore it. The color wears and wears like iron; I managed to get eight hours of wear with a fairly noticeable stain that lingered for a few more hours (but it’s supposed to last for 10 hours). It was a little drying towards the last two hours I wore it, but it was moderately comfortable to wear overall.
