Random Product Reviews - Kat Von D, Urban Decay, NARS

KAT VON D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Homegirl 

An innovative lipstick that coats lips with bold color, long-lasting wear, and luxe comfort. Drench your lips with bold color and unstoppable femininity. Designed to look as rock ‘n roll as its wearer, this revolutionary lipstick is formulated with Color Cushion Technology™, which combines lasting-wear, one-swipe payoff, and velvet-touch comfort. This color-true lipstick leaves lips supple, and its wide color spectrum offers stunning shades, including red for every skintone, statement-making colors, and classic, everyday neutrals. 

Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss Lipstick is infused with an antioxidant complex that leaves lips feeling soft, and the Crème Brûlée scent provides a subtle, sweet experience when you apply it. Designed by Kat to resemble one of her favorite bracelets, the black, monochromatic casing is uniquely studded and topped with her KVD monogram on the outer crown and bullet.

First off, I am terrible at putting on lipstick without a liner. Don't ask me why I didn't. While I adored the color, the formula seemed a little dry. I bet after a sugar scrub and good balm, it's probably even nicer. These lipsticks are available at Sephora for $21 each.



URBAN DECAY Revolution High-Color Lipgloss in Bittersweet

A high-coverage, ultra-pigmented lip gloss. Get audacious lip looks and lay down all the color you crave in one swipe of this highly pigmented formula. This range of must-have, cream and sparkle textures comes in show-stopping bold brights, nudes, and deep, dark shades. Urban Decay’s Pigment Infusion System™ gives each a super creamy texture for an irresistible finish. Enriched with Hilurlip™, these glosses define and hydrate lips, making them appear fuller and plumper. Each gloss is encased in a clear barrel to make the shade visible, and features an applicator that provides full coverage in one quick swipe. 

Urban Decay modeled the flat, pocket-friendly profile of the Revolution Lipgloss case after its vintage, cult-favorite lip gloss. Then they gave it gorgeous facets and a metallic gunmetal cap design that’s reminiscent of their Revolution Lipstick case.

I really liked the smooth texture of the lipgloss. It felt remarkably moisturizing. The color is fabulous too. Not nearly as shocking as it looked on the packaging. The full-sized lipgloss is $22 at Sephora.


NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Cruella and Rikugien

A selection of high-impact, fashion-forward shades in a rich, creamy satin finish that stays on all day. The Satin Lip Pencil dresses up lips in statement shades that seduce with rich, color-bright pigments, while drenching them in decadent moisture. This modern, long-wearing, vitamin-enriched formula for lips looks sumptuously saturated and dramatically defined.

The Satin Lip Pencil Category shade designations are all named for parks and gardens around the world.

I love lip crayons. They handle both the liner and lipstick duties. These were smooth and stay-put. I don't know if the colors are for me though.

These NARS lip pencils were sent to my as a birthday gift for being a Beauty Insider with Sephora. Sephora always sends out high-quality gifts with purchase during the month of your birthday. These pencils are available full-size for $26 each at Sephora.


ROSEBUD PERFUME CO. Rosebud Salve in a Tube

A cult-favorite, multitasking miracle balm in a convenient tube format. This beloved multipurpose essential deeply moisturizes and soothes dry lips. Versatile and comforting to skin, it calms and heals irritation, soothes the sting of minor burns, helps heal cuts, tames mangled cuticles, helps fix ashy elbows and knees, and minimizes diaper rash. The slight hint of rose scent adds a delicately aromatic touch without overpowering or cloying.

This is an incredibly moisturizing lip salve. Ohmigosh... so smooth. Even after I wiped it off, I kept feeling the softening effects of it.

HOWEVER, the smell and taste of roses is STRONG. I found it very hard to get past, which is why I wiped it off. Maybe if I'd used a thinner layer it wouldn't have been so overwhelming. I do intend to use every last drop though because my lips just never felt so amazing. This is available at Sephora for $6.


I got all of these products from Sephora. If you've never shopped with Sephora, you should. You get free shipping on orders over $50, free gifts on orders over $25 which you select from their Weekly Deals usually consisting of deluxe samples of amazing products, three free samples of your choice which includes perfumes, colognes, makeup and skin care products, AND, once you've spent enough money to become a Beauty Insider you get points to spend on luxury samples or full-sized gifts. It really can't be beat.
