An innovative lipstick that coats lips with bold color for up to 10 hours of wear. This hybrid lipstick is formulated with Color Cushion Technology, which combines 10-hour budge-proof wear with vibrant color. Featuring a color spectrum for every skin tone, this lipstick lets you glide on velvety-soft comfort and eye-popping colors that range from classic everyday neutrals to bright shades.
Kat Von D has just released 30 Studded Kiss Lipsticks, which the company claims will coat the lips with color for up to 10 hours while giving you comfortable wear. This review is for the shade Bauhau5, which is a matte deep raspberry.
The Studded Kiss Lipsticks come in reflective, black tubes with a studded design all over them. The bullets are also embossed with the Kat Von D logo.
Bauhau5 is a blackberry shade in the tube, but applies a lighter shade of deep raspberry on the lips. This shade has a completely matte finish and is very pigmented.
The good pigmentation is the only thing I really like about this shade’s formula. The lipstick does not let you “glide on velvety-soft comfort” with its formula, as the product description claims. The formula is dry and uncomfortable to wear. It wrinkles the lips, emphasizing the lines on the lips.
Granted, this lipstick wears for longer than most (3-4 hours) due to the dry formula clinging to the lips. But it’s not nice to have the dry feeling on your lips, and the dry formula also means that this shade fades more unevenly than other lipstick formulas.
Ease of Use: 7/10
This lipstick tugs, drags, and skips across the lips because of its dry formula. It’s difficult to apply in an even manner and can’t really be blended.
For $21.00 you get 0.10 ounces of lipstick.
