Kat Von D Foiled Love Liquid Lipstick ($19) launched in four shades for Fall 2012. These are a dramatic liquid lipstick with a rich color pay off.
I was a little scared of the shade I tried, Adora.
Take a look!
Adora is a candy apple red that I’ve always wished I could rock. It was originally introduced as a regular lipstick in the collection and has since extended to a gloss and now a liquid lipstick. It’s sadly a little clown-y on me but SUCH a gorgeous candy apple metallic red shade that just begs to be worn….perhaps not out of my house though!
About the only thing I’d rant about regarding Kat Von D’s Foiled Love Liquid Lipstick is the lack of shades. With a mere four shades to choose from this collection really lacks variety.
I have no great love for liquid lipstick but these are very comfortable to wear. The formula is lightweight with a slick silicone-like texture that glides across lips in an even, smooth finish. It does have a foiled or metallic finish with a dramatic color pay off so the name is justified. Pigmentation is excellent as a single stroke over lips produces rich color pay off.
Although not necessarily hydrating the formula doesn’t suck moisture from lips either and wears for a solid three to four hours before showing minor wear and fading. But even after it fades you’ll still be left with a nice bit of stain.
Typically liquid lipsticks have a matte or velvety formula that sometimes proves a little heavy and drying. Foiled Love Liquid Lipstick was a refreshing change from the norm with a lighter texture and killer pigment that really pops!
The shade selection, as mentioned above, is lacking otherwise these would gain a Muse Approval. A few more natural colors maybe a peach or two and I’d be a happy girl. Because even though I loved Adora, I simply can’t rock it.
These are available now at Sephora and Sephora.com
