Truth be told, you won’t too often find me donning a dark lip with a smokey eye but today we’re letting my inner vampiress come out to play. Hmm..something about that either sounds creepy or inappropriate but let’s just roll with it.
I’m excited to have the opportunity to team up with Sephora (umm..freakin’ awesome!) and try out some of Kat Von D’s newer products. I’ve always thought her eye shadows were great quality and that the overall aesthetic of her brand looked really edgy glam and rocker chic. You guys know that I love me some lippies so naturally I was intrigued by her Studded Kiss line. The packaging is definitely eye-catching.
I had the chance to try the shades Lullaby and Motorhead (pictured). This Fall I have totally been loving the deeper and vampy lip shades so Motorhead inspired me to do a Face of the Day. I’ve worn it as a sheer wash on the lips as well as with a barely there eye but today I felt like going bold.
Motorhead is described as a matte black cherry and doesn’t swatch quite as dark as it looks. Initially I didn’t expect as much of a reddish tone to come out of this guy but was pleasantly surprised. I can see why this one is a cult favorite. Keep in mind that for any matte lipstick it is always best to properly exfoliate and moisturize the lips beforehand as application can be a bit more tricky.
I was also able to try out her Monarch palette and I am yet again impressed with the eye shadow quality! This palette has the perfect shades for Fall and are really easy to work with so I of course had to incorporate it into the look as well.
