Kat Von D Lullabye Studded Kiss Lipstick
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.

This color is amazing. When I was at Sephora looking at these lipsticks, this color immediately drew my attention. I am just afraid it might be too bold for me.

Based on your description that it “wears and wears like an iron” I’m kind of surprised you only gave it 8/10 on Longevity. What influences that?

Yeah, 8 is GREAT wear relatively speaking… but you know, when you claim 10 hours, well… (Just like the brands with their 12-, 16-, and 24-hour wear.) Some of the shades have lasted almost 10 hours on me, though.

Sure reminds me of Show orchid a lot! so an easy skip. Such pretty shades, just wish these were a little less drying and that the shimmer was tinier too! 🙁

This is the first one I tried at Sephora and I fell in love! I think the frost is completely wearable and really makes this a special shade. I love it on you!

Gorgeous! This is the first Kat Von D lippie you have reviewed that I like. The color is so pretty and FINALLY not neon bright!

More and more pearls and frosts seem to be coming out lately. Are they back “in”? If so maybe I’ll break out my wet n wild “fushia with blue pearl” that reminds me a bit of this shade.

I’m glad you pointed out that it isn’t gritty because that would be my first thought (didn’t get to swatch this colour). It looks fantastic on you!

I love this. Not sue I love it enough to buy it because I wouldn’t use it often but I like how bold it is without being over the top!

I was hoping you’d review this one, it stood out to me immediately. It might be my favorite color out of the range. It’s special! (The dupes you included are great too!)

Do these have any scent/taste, like a MAC vanilla or something of the like? I LOVE the colors in this line but am picky about scent!

I have this shade. There has to be variation in batches I guess, because unfortunately this only lasts on me for about 2 hours before it starts disappearing. Works better with primer, but definitely doesn’t last anywhere near as long on me as it does on you even with primer! And if I try to eat anything, even just a little non-messy snack with it on and it’s totally gone. 🙁

It’s a gorgeous shade though, and I didn’t find it gritty either. Easy to apply too.

On another note– You look lovely in it, Christine!

2 hours? WOW! I can’t even imagine how this could not last at least a few hours… it just doesn’t have that kind of texture where it should slip off!

I have no idea! 🙁 It’s frustrating to me, because I really love the color and I like the scent too. I don’t have this problem with MAC lipsticks, other than some of the lustres. They still stay on as long as I don’t eat anything. I’m thinking I had to have gotten a bum one, or maybe it’s something about this formula that just doesn’t jive with my lips.

This colour is so pretty, and I love the sparkles (of course, LOL!) I do still find myself wanting Violet Volt more though – I really wish Milani was available here!! I wonder how it compares to Revlon Whimsical (in colour and sparkle, not opacity/wear time)… *goes to look at dupes*
