Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick: Gothica

When I first laid eyes on Kat Von D's Studded Kiss Lipstick in Gothica it reminded me of crushed bronze dipped fall leaves, and I still stand by that! I was really drawn to this lipstick especially for the fall. Something about bronze, burnt oranges and glitter that just take me to a typical crisp cool NYC  fall afternoon, strolling around, Starbucks Pumpkin Spice latte in hand...Ahhhhhhh....

Ok, enough with the tangent, aside for my obvious love for this color in the tube, the packaging is eye catching too! It is a plastic studded lipstick tube, very rock n' roll and original. Overall, the packaging seems sturdy and the lipstick does close well, so I don't foresee any problems with it possibly opening in my purse while rolling around in there.

As for the formula, it is a drying formula, but not so drying where I would find myself with desert parched lips  by the end of the day. The formula is a long wearing formula, which explains the dryness and lasted a good 4-5 hours without me feeling like I really needed to reapply and without that very parched lip look or feel. In addition, even with the glitter that is in this lipstick it still manages to feel pretty smooth on the lips, and not gritty at all. This lipstick is a glitter bomb, but in the best, most grown up way possible.

The pigmentation is sheer, the base color being a bronze-orange-copper. The formula is build-able and doesn't take much to reach my desired look. The glitter and the color do transfer a bit during wear, and if you go to wipe your mouth after eating, expect that you will be left with some flecks of glitter. It is just the nature of the beast with a lipstick that is this chuck-full of glitter.

Overall, I was really impressed with this lipstick, I absolutely adore the color, and the long-wear aspect to it is just the icing on the cake. This lipstick is gorgeous alone and also can be used a topper to other lipsticks that you would want to add some dimension to. I have to say KVD, I'm impressed! and I would definitely recommend this lipstick if glitter and copper-orange colored lipsticks are your thing.
