Hello all! I don’t usually wear lipstick, and if I do it’s normally a nude color. I decided to move onto new territory with a red shade. I went on a Sephora trip with Rocky and she helped me find two shades that I simply loved. One was called Stiletto, which is a bright orangey red and the other is Hellbent which is a “blood red”—the make-up line’s words not mine haha. I purchased “Hellbent” and I love it! I’ve only worn it one day, but so far it’s been pretty good at lasting through a lunch and short work day. It is a bit drying, but that may just be me because I tend to have dry lips and apply chapstick numerous times a day. I simply wore some chapstick over it to remedy the dryness.
Onto the packaging. While it is cute with the tattoo rose pattern, the clear plastic bottom did crack. I had to exchange the first one I bought b/c it was cracked right out of the box, but now my new one is cracking so I may have to exchange it once again. It seems to be very fragile :/
All in all, it’s a good lipstick and is definitely motivating me to try more! The small range of shades is very flattering, considering that I fell in love with the first and only 2 shades I tried. I’d say Kat Von D’s color choices are right on the money. They are also very saturated. I highly recommend you give it a try if you find yourself in her section :) I’d rate this product 4/5, even though I’ve only had it one day haha.
