Kat Von D Painted Love Lipgloss in Lolita Review and Swatches

I <3 the sale section at Sephora and while I was browsing, i noticed the Kat Von D lipgloss which is normally $18 was on sale for $9.  Never one to pass up a sale, I purchased Lolita, a dusty rose color.
The packaging is adorable and has "tattooed" roses on the outside.  It has a slightly rubberized feel comparable to NARS packaging.

This is really more of a liquid lipstick than a lipgloss.  Good coverage and amazingly pigmented.  In comparison to a MAC lipglass, it's much better.

Formulated w/o parabens and has a light fruity scent that fades after a while.  The site said you can layer it over a lipstick, but I think it stands alone well enough.  It's only a little sticky, but nothing that was over bearing (especially in the summer heat!).   It also had a decent few hours wear

Overall, I'd recommend this to those of you looking for a thicker liquid lipstick with stronger pigmentation.  The color selection isn't great right now in the sale section and I'm not sure if being in the sale sections means it will be discontinued, but at $9 I'd purchase it again.  I'm not sure I would do $18.  While you get a decent amount of product, I think $15 would be a decent price.

Rating: 4/5
Repurchase: yes for $15 or under, $18, unsure (maybe if I had a 20% off coupon)

  2. That color is gorgeous on you! I have never tried any of the Kat Von D line... I've heard bad things about the eyeshadows but good things from the eyeliners.
