This is my second bottle - this is absolutely the BEST foundation I've ever found for oily skin. It is the ONLY foundation that I don't get oily breakthrough after only an hour. In fact, I never get shine through with this product which is why I wish I had it years ago, I'll never use anything else as long as this is available, and I love it. I know everyone says this, but I have tried way more than my fair share of oil-free, shine-free, mattifying, etc. foundations and none work at all. Then this comes along and works so completely it's amazing.
I have tried so many lipsticks and stains and you name it trying to find something that I can wear all day and not worry about. Well this is it!! I do touch it up after lunch as it is has started to fade just a bit and I want it to look fresh again. BUT here's the thing. It fades well! It doesn't give you that embarrassing and cringe worthy ring around the outside of
This lipstick is exactly what I was looking for. It's the perfect amount of shine! It stays on for a long time, and it stains your lips so even when most of it is off your lips, you still have a little bit of color on. The color I have is pretty pigmented. The packaging is absolutely gorgeous, and it smells/tastes amazing. I'm in love! Will purchase in more colors.
Perfect Fig is the perfect color for me. As it wears off, it turns to a lighter pink. Not a bright pink, just a little pinker than my natural lips color. When eating - no ring around the lips. I'm always searching for lipstick. Find one and the manufactures discontinues after a few years. This is a keeper and hope that Lancome keeps it in their lineup for a long time.
The Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick is 40 SHADES of vanilla-y, marshmellowy, creamy goodness. It passes the totally arbitrary and legit coffee test I made up, meaning it doesn’t all smear off on my pretty coffee mugs and survives me spending half a day sipping the 16 oz of liquid I brewed in the morning. In all seriousness though, this lipstick stays on and stays pigmented for a good half of the day, and even after that you’re only barely touching up. All 40 colours of the Studded Kiss lipsticks are well chosen. I adore how creamy they are to apply, and how comfortable they are to wear all day. 10/10!
I probably own about 20 different shades of this lipstick. I don't understand why some reviewers are saying it's sticky or too drying. I've never experienced those issues with it. It glides on great and the applicator is easy to work with. With any liquid lipstick (or any lipstick, really) you want to make sure you're taking care of your lips before applying it. That way you avoid your lips looking flaky or cracked. My routine is this: I use a lip exfoliating scrub to get rid of all the dead skin on my lips. That dead skin is what will make your lips look flaky. Then I apply a lip moisturizer. I've used regular chapstick and products made specifically for this. I usually just put on whichever one I find in my mountain of makeup products first. If using chapstick though, I recommend using a thinner layer. That way, if you plan on putting the lipstick on soon after, you're not trying to put it on top of a goop of chapstick. Most of these KVD liquid lipsticks don't need a lip liner used with them but in my experience, the really dark berry shades could use it. I like that the formula is thinner compared to some other liquid lipsticks I own. It makes it easy to apply and fix any mistakes you could make while applying it. You can use a lip brush to apply this lipstick but I just use the applicator that it comes with and get great results.
I fell in love with this line of lippies due to the creaminess and color payoff. They have so many colors to choose from and they have something for everyone. They don't smell or taste bad (in case you accidentally get it in your mouth) and they are perfect for everyday.
