White Out

Kat Von D White Out Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright white with a matte finish. It was one of the most matte shades in the range, and while the color can be worn alone, it was also included in the range to be mixed with other shades. It was a terrible mixing shade, as it was just so dry that it did not blend and merge with other colors well. It had a tendency to cake up on the lips when I used it as a base, and it just stuck to my finger if I tried patting it on top of something else. When I tried to use a lip brush, it was a bit better, but it was still difficult to get the shade to go on evenly and blend with whatever I wanted to layer it with. On its own, it lasted for four hours but settled into my lip lines quite a bit and was drying. Frankly, it was easier to wear it alone than it was to mix with anything else as the texture was just so stiff.

$19.00/0.12 oz. - $158.33 Per Ounce

Per the brand, the new formula is supposed to be "the creamiest, most cushiony and unbelievably pigmented lipstick to ever cross your lips" that is "comfortable" to wear. I don't know if the brand has actually tried the plethora of other lipsticks on the market, because I can tell you that after swatching all 40 shades back-to-back, these are nowhere near "the creamiest" or "most cushiony" or even "unbelievably pigmented." They were, on average, much creamier than the original formula, but a fair number of shades were firm and dense enough that short strokes was better for application otherwise there was noticeable tugging. Some shades were pigmented, some shades were uneven or sheer. The mid-tone shades seemed to be the best overall in terms of application, pigmentation, and how they looked on the lips, whereas the shimmery shades were often sheerer, gritty, and drying while the deeper, vampy shades were lacking pigmentation and could apply streakily.

They seemed to have longer wear than most lipsticks (five to eight hours) but have been lightly to intensely drying, depending on the shade, and I found that wearing them back-to-back made the drying aspect more pronounced. They had a strong, sweet, burnt sugar kind of scent that was noticeable when initially applied, but I didn't detect during wear.

I did not review all shades in the original Studded Kiss formula as it wasn't feasible for me to purchase all of those at the time, and after trying what I did purchase, they weren't promising (often very dry, stiff, and painful to use with a drying formula). From what I can tell, some are better (see: LUV (Original) vs. LUV (New); Coven (Original) vs. Coven (New)), some are worse (see: Gold Blooded (Original) vs. Gold Blooded (New); Poe (Original) vs. Poe (New)). The shimmery shades seemed worse for the reformulation, and the glittery shades are like the grittiest sandpaper across one's lips; I felt like I was ripping my lips off when applying both Gold Blooded and Piaf with Poe not being far behind.

Nayeon

Kat Von D Nayeon Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium black with cool undertones and flecks of sparkle and shimmer in it. It had semi-opaque pigmentation at most, and the texture was a bit thinner and had a bit more slip than others in the line, I could feel every particle as the lipstick scraped across my lips. The color did not go on evenly and pulled into my lip lines, which did worsen and become more and more apparent as it wore on. It stayed on me for about four hours and was lightly drying over time.

Slayer

Kat Von D Slayer Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark black with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer and was somewhat buildable to greater coverage, but I would recommend a liner and a lip brush. The texture was drier, firmer, and dense, which made it difficult to apply to the lips as it tugged a lot and did not lay down color evenly. I had issues with getting product to adhere well to the center of my lips (where it can be wetter), which only made the end result worse. It lasted for five hours but was moderately drying within two hours of wearing it and product gathered in my lip lines over time.
