Kat Von D Thin Lizzy Studded Kiss Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “sparkling brick copper.” It’s a lightly brightened, copper-red with gold and copper sparkle. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Manhunter (P, $18.00) is brighter, more orange. Kat Von D Gothica (P, $21.00) is lighter, browner. Milani Bronze Beauty (P, $5.49) is lighter, more orange, less red. Givenchy Rouge d’Exception (308) (LE, $36.00) has less shimmer, brighter. NARS Moscow (P, $26.00) has less shimmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Let us rejoice for a moment, because Thin Lizzy had a lightly creamy consistency that applied evenly, smoothly, and didn’t tug or drag on the lips. It isn’t a slippery feeling, so it still retains a mostly matte finish on the lips, but it is comfortable to wear and isn’t a struggle to apply. It had good color coverage, and though it says “sparkling,” it is a finer shimmer that is less present than some of the other more metallic/frosted shades in the range. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours, and it was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

LOL @ “Let us rejoice for a moment”. Talk about a hit or miss collection. Thin Lizzy is very pretty and I’ll check it out next time I’m at Sephora.

Huzzah! I think this colour looks nice on you, too πŸ™‚ And now let me be picky, and grumble about the fact that this pleasantly ‘high’ ranking KvD Studded Kiss lipstick is not really the colour for me πŸ˜› I guess in a way I should thank this line for only really tempting me with one (Poe) so far, given how much of a lipstick fanatic I am! πŸ˜€

I am ridiculously happy that you (comparatively) liked this one. On the one hand, as you always kindly point out when you reply to people, none of us should need validation just to enjoy something we love. On the other hand, as one after another of her brethren have been felled, I come to feel very protective of Thin Lizzy, and hoped for a good outcome for her so that some of your readers might be moved to try.

Fair/light redheads, I’m looking at you. This shade is *killer* on us.

I was afraid to get this one because I didn’t like all the glitter in Gothica, and I felt like its base color didn’t have good coverage. So is this formula closer to Adora than Gothica?

Well, I’m glad this one had a good rating otherwise she’d be failing Thin Lizzy. Don’t bring down the band with a terrible lipstick, KVD!

On the one hand, I’m sooo happy this one is actually quite decent; on the other, I’m still sorely disappointed that the shades I was actually interested in are so horrible… The color is very pretty, and wearable, but just not “me”.

This is pretty, but i thought it’d be shimmerier. This does look like an excellent everyday colour. Very wearable. I love how it looks on you.
I do think I prefere Gothica, though for the glittery shimmer πŸ™‚

Glad to see this one had a better result than the last few disappointing lipsticks from Kat Von D. There is a brand in Australia and New Zealand called Thin Lizzy that makes concealers and foundation (mostly designed to be thick and cover tattoos) and when I saw this review I briefly thought you were reviewing something from them and was quite surprised! haha
