Kat Von D Wolvesmouth Studded Kiss Lipstick ($21.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “metallic berry.” It’s a deepened, berry-red with subtle, cool undertones and a soft, metallic shimmer. Inglot #293 Lipstick Cream (P, $12.00) is glossier, no shimmer. Bite Beauty Bordeaux (P, $28.00) is darker, no shimmer. Illamasqua Shard (P, $24.00) has less shimmer. Urban Decay Venom (P, $22.00) is brighter. Milani Chilled Brandy (P, $5.49) is much warmer. Make Up For Ever #13 (P, $19.00) is slightly warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Studded Kiss formula boasts 10-hour wear with “one-swipe payoff” that “leaves lips supple.” Wolvesmouth has mostly opaque color coverage, but the natural lip color will come through slightly. The consistency was thin, lightweight, a little clingy, and applied with only a little drag/tugging–but at least the color went on fairly evenly. On me, the color wore well for seven hours, and the formula was somewhat drying over time. It had a sweet, creme brulee scent but no discernible taste.

I’ve almost purchased this three times now but something keeps holding me back. I love his the swatch looks on my hand – it looks so unique and complex, but I try it on my lips and it looks so dupable – none of the uniqueness shows up on me – it just looks like every other berry out there. It looks awesome on you though – on you I can see that uniqueness I see when swatching on my hand.

I’m actually glad I didn’t end up picking any of these up. All the colors I was interested in, don’t seem to wear very well, especially considering that they claim a 10 hour wear. :/

This one is a bit too “pink” for my tastes (and would probably pull even pinker on me!), but it is an overall beautiful shade. The Bite Beauty Bordeaux, however, is one I need to check out…

I would’ve loved it if the metallic shimmer was lessened and the pigmentation was greater. I have fairly large lips for my face so I feel like the metallic shimmer would overwhelm me completely.

Have you tried any of KVD’s metallic finishes? I feel like they’re not over-the-top – shimmery but not WHOA! metallic. Like OCC’s Metallic Lip Tars are very metallic!

while it’s look beautiful with metalic finished but I am somewhat disappointed with color,wish for more purple plum than dark red

I got this shade and that first week I was in love with it (and Poe) but since then I find myself reaching more for my standby OCC colors than these. They’re pretty colors, and they wear pretty well in the two colors I have, but I don’t think I’ll buy more at this price point. I am kind of hoping for a Christmas season sampler like she normally releases so I can try a few more and see if I fall in love with those. Your reviews have been very helpful, and saved me a ton of money!

I like the color but don’t like that its uneven. I’d probably wear a gloss on top to somehow reduce the dry look and boost that lovely shimmer!

This…will make my lips look like the Sahara!!Most metallics in general make my lips look so “liney” and “feathery”:s the colour looks so pretty on you Christine . I however…will be passing on this !

i like the look of this one, but it looks very similar to a wet n wild fergie lipstick i bought recently called ‘d-vinely chilled.’ glad i could save $18 ๐Ÿ˜‰

It is a very pretty colour.
I had Venom in my cart today, but removed it as I thought I had similar lipsticks. I guess I have to check, if I don’t I need to buy Venom. I would love to get my hands, or lips on Bite Beauty Bordeaux, it looks fantastic.
I get so inspired looking at photos here. My wallet is screaming, though ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m diggin this one, it looks like it has a duochrome-y sheen in the full face pic. Did you notice a grittiness while wearing it Christine?

How similar do you think this finish is compared with the Metallic OCC Lip Tars? I have Black Metal Dahlia and the finish looks sort of similar based on this picture.

I really like the colour, and I’m not opposed to metallic finishes at all, but this one kind of *looks* dry, which is a real shame. I think I’ll probably stick with Venom, which I have and LOVE. Now that I’m thinking about it, I might see if I can semi-dupe the effect by tapping a little metallic berry eyeshadow on top of Venom the next time I wear it…
