So I got to review the infamous Kat Von D makeup.
If you're wondering and to put your anxiousness to rest, it is now available at Sephora Malaysia!
It came in a nicely packed box full black (black is my fav color), and fonts that looks oh-so-goth-like!
Even with whatever I said above, the packaging still had it's girliness to it. I'll show you more later.
So I was given three lipsticks, three liquid lipsticks, one eyeliner, two brushes, one face palette and one eyeshadow palette.
I was looking forward to the foundation cause I heard many good things about the staying power, but I was still pretty stoked with all that I've received.
Let's start of with the lipsticks from the Studded Kiss range.
Firstly, the packaging is super slick and edgy. Every stick of lipstick has Kat Von D's stamp too!
It's glides on smoothly, with a creamy texture and leaves hints of a nice luscious vanilla scent.
I received three colors, from left to right (pic below), Poe, Underage Red and Lovecraft.
My favourite colour would be Lovecraft, as I can wear it everyday. It's a beautiful dusty pink tone which is super in trend now and I am so happy to finally own one that is quite pigmented for a lipstick base as I've been using liquid matte ones and I was hoping for a creamy one. Underage red is a gorgeous deep red color, perfect for vampy looks and night outs. I haven't been wearing red for a while now and would probably sport it soon. Poe is a very experimental color, definitely something I would wear when I am feeling cheeky. However Poe needs a few applications as it's quite translucent on the first swipe.
I have a weak spot for liquid lipsticks. Also known as matte lipsticks to some, these babies are supposed to be long lasting throughout the day! In the Kat Von D makeup range, they're known as Everlasting Liquid Lipstick. I've had my fair share of different matte lipsticks so these were definitely up for a challenge. From the bottom up, L.U.V which boast a bright purple hue, again, a very dramatic experimental color. Suitable for times when you just wanna have fun! Next is Outlaw, compared to Underage Red, Outlaw is one shade lighter but since this is the liquid version it's more pigmented than the stick version. Last but not least, one of the best selling color, Lolita. Another fave of mine which I will be wearing daily! It's a darker dusty pink shade compared to Lovecraft and has a slight purple hue.
Also the Tattoo Liner in Trooper.
In a simple tube with an easy applicator, these lipsticks are my favourite for quick application and it is REALLY long lasting. Yes, I've tried it and it's great! It's not as drying as some I've tried before, it dries off matte and it glides on smoothly. Very pigmented and highly recommended!
Swatches of the Studded Kiss in Poe, Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw, and Tattoo Eyeliner in Trooper.
Look at how pigmented Outlaw is, and that's only in one application although you are supposed to fill in your lips with one! The Tattoo Eyeliner is pen like so easy application which you can also control the thickness and shape easily.
Moving on to the palettes, we have the face Shade + Light Contour Palette and Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad Palette.
Kat Von D makeup is known for it's contouring palettes and after opening these babies up I could clearly see why. With these shades you can easily transform any look to how you please. Higher cheek bones? Check. Defined nose? Check. Higher eyebrow arch? Done!

From her makeup range, you can easily purchase these brushes to assist in the perfect makeup application! I love how you get two brushes in one.
Here, I have the Shade + Light Contour Brush. On one side it's the Angled Bristles for Contouring and the other is the Tapered Bristles for Highlighting. Perfect combo, great for traveling! The other brush is the Shade + Light Eye Contour Brush. On one end is the Precision End for Contouring and Lining while the other is a Domed End for Blending and Highlighting.
The line will be available on Sephora Online on July 7th 2016 and stores on the 16th July onwards!
