I’m gonna review the Kat Von D liquid lipstick in Lolita today. I have always wanted to try Kat Von D lipsticks because I have mostly read good reviews about them. I don’t know what I would do without liquid lipsticks really. I honestly can’t believe I didn’t try them sooner. Moving on to today’s lipstick review the shade Lolita from the KVD range is a colour I always wanted to try. I also looked for a dupe which is quite close as well but still couldn’t do without the Lolita shade. The dupe is NYX Liquid Suede lipstick in Soft Spoken which I have reviewed here. There will be a comparison swatch at the bottom of the post.
Price – $20
Availability – www.sephora.com, Instagram stores
I can for sure say that Lolita is one universally flattering shade. It would suit almost all skintones skin it is neither too dark nor too light. I think it was Kylie Jenner that brought back such shades in fashion. I love trying out a variety of different colours and I love the brown/berry lip colour family a lot. They look especially nice on Indian skintones.
The packaging of the Kat Von D Lolita shade is very sleek and chic. I love the tattoo kind of design at the bottom. I used to love watching her Tattoo Nightmares show and I am glad she has such an excellent range of makeup as well. The applicator is a standard Doe foot one which spreads the colour evenly.
This lipstick is one of the best liquid lipsticks that I have ever tried. It is very pigmented and non drying. It goes on smooth and does not crack or make your lips look flakey (I am looking at you Chambor :-|). Inspite of having dry and lips that often have rashes, this one suits me a lot. I think the formula is excellent. It is transfer proof and does not leave a mark on all cups and spoons. I find it quite easy to line and fill my lips with this and don’t really need a matching lip liner much. It lasts 6-7 hours easily and does not need frequent touch ups. Does survive a full meal with some fading around the inside of the lip.
Overall I love the Kat Von D Lolita lipstick and I think if you want to try one colour from her range you should surely check it out.
Coming to the dupe- the closest colours to it are Nyx Liquid suede in Soft Spoken, Colourpop Frick n Frack, MAC Whirl. The Nyx one is slightly on the peachy side but on the lips they look quite similar. I have reviewed the Nyx one on the blog already if you want to see the full review and the swatches (link).
