Hi Loves! One of my recent purchases from Sephora was the Kat Von D Lip Vixen duo.
I really like buying minis because you get the opportunity to give a product a good test run before committing to the full size and the price tag that comes along with it. Not to mention minis are super cute and travel friendly!
OK, onto the Duo! So what you get in this little vibrant red box is a limited edition mini lip of Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss Lipstick in “Noble” and Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in “Outlaw”. Awesome right?!
I love pinky nude lips so when I saw the shade “Noble” I just had to pick it up! The color is absolutely GORGEOUS and it wears exactly as it’s described, a matte petal pink nude. AMAZING packaging as always by Kat Von D with the studded black cylinder lipstick tube, seriously too cute! I love the shade and the color payoff, but I wasn’t a fan of the formula. I found it to be a bit drying on the lips as with most matte lippies so don’t forget lip balm before applying! Also, since it is a bit drying, I found that it accentuates any lines and dry areas on your lips, so I definitely recommend exfoliating your lips beforehand.
Aside from a few minor dislikes, I love that it is long lasting lip color and I will certainly use this baby up because its color is so darn pretty. Unfortunately, I will have to think twice about purchasing its full size version since the formula is difficult to work with.
Outlaw is a stunning “brick red” liquid lipstick. Even though this is a mini version there is nothing mini about its performance. The formula of this liquid lipstick is creamy when first applied and dries to a soft matte finish that wears comfortably throughout the day. It’s SO pigmented and its staying power is simply phenomenal. As with most liquid lipsticks a small amount goes a LONG way and don’t forget to moisturize your lips beforehand!
Overall I am happy with this purchase since I was able to try 2 different Kat Von D products for only $18 since the full size of each is $20-$21. Although I wasn’t thrilled with the formula of the Studded Kiss Lipstick I couldn’t be happier with the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick and can’t wait to pick up some different shades!
