We did it.. this is the final lip to share from the Sephora gift set I thought might never end. I left the most festive of shades to share with you in December but honestly I think the bright pinks were my favourite. I will be doing a full review on my YouTube channel very soon so I’ll go through my hits and misses then but *spoiler alert* this one’s a hit. It’s a lot like the Hourglass in that it’s a creamy liquid lipstick that sets matte and lasts a long time.. the packaging and the applicator are different, the Hourglass definitely has it there but this one is $19 whereas the other is $28 and the Hourglass isn’t $9 better in my opinion. We can more easily get our hands on that one in the UK – £23 online here – but if you have the option and are looking to save some cash I think the Kat Von D is well worth the money. I wore it on Sunday to dinner at my parents and it was still perfect (there or there abouts) when I got back that evening. It had survived not only lunch but multiple cups of tea and biscuits.. colour me impressed.
These pictures were taken just after application and it hadn’t yet set, I realise now that I should have waited as this doesn’t give you a true idea of what it will look like but imagine if you will the above.. only dry.. not at all shiny and thus a touch darker. Sorry. I will definitely pick up more of these when I’m in the US next year but if you don’t want to pay shipping etc then the Hourglass is damn good. just more expensive.
