So back in 2014, Kat Von D released newly formulate lipsticks in the form of the Studded Kiss Lipstick.  Of course, at that time, the blogosphere was abuzz!  These lipsticks were supposed to be awesome.  More awesome than the original Foiled Love Lipstick, which apart from their tacky packaging, were really good.  So yeah, expectations and hopes for the Studded Kiss Lipstick was high…perhaps too high!

A huge disappointment in both shades and texture. Skip these, unless you like the feel of sandpaper on your lips!

First, let’s talk packaging.  Unlike the cheap and tacky packaging that was used for the original Foiled Love lipstick, the packaging used for the Studded Kiss Lipstick is very luxe and well done.  As you can see from the pictures, the lipstick cases are ‘studded’ just as their name suggests.  What is very surprising is just how heavy the lipsticks themselves are.  They are not overly heavy, but they could do some damage if you decided to throw one at somebody.  Huge thumbs up on the packaging.  Unfortunately, it is all downhill from there.

The formula of these lipsticks is just horrible.  I mean, way to screw up your reformulation.  They have got to be the dryest, scratchiest, and most difficult to work with lipsticks that I’ve ever encountered.  They are just so, so, so very bad.  Which, when you think about it it’s pretty sad.  They somehow managed to take what was a very good product (the Foiled Love Lipstick) and turn it into a crappy product (the Studded Kiss Lipstick).  Way to go guys!  The colours themselves, baring a few shades, aren’t that unique.  You can find similar shades from a number of brands with a better price point, formula and product.

If you are interested in trying out the Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick line, you can find them at your local Sephora for $26 CAD.
