I’ve heard so much hype about the Kat Von D Studded Kiss lipsticks ($21). There’s a huge array of shades (39 on Sephora’s website), from neutrals to brights, and the line even includes a green color, so there is truly something for everyone. The casing is really fun, as it’s a black studded design inspired by Kat’s favorite bracelets.
Lovecraft is described as “matte mauve pink nude“. I think it’s pretty dark for a nude color. It is definitely matte; I find it a little drying, but not the worst I’ve ever tried by any means. It has a very light vanilla scent that is not noticeable during application or wear.
The color is very pretty, but I do have some difficulty in application, as it tends to drag on my lips. My lips are typically very dry though, so you may have a different experience! Lovecraft is very long-wearing and doesn’t transfer everywhere while dining or drinking.
Lovecraft is a beautiful color, but I’m not completely sold on this formula. For 1/4 of the price, you can go with the Maybelline matte lipsticks, which are silkier and more comfortable to wear.
