#influenster Kat Von D Studded Creme Lipstick

Influenster was kind enough to send me the Kat Von D Studded Creme Lipstick in Lolita to review.  A few months back, they also sent me the lip liner (in Lolita as well) and I really enjoyed the liner.  While I appreciate everything that I receive to review, I absolutely hated this Lipstick.  Before I get to the reason(s) why, I’ll post the brand’s description.

A balm like no other-Kona Kare Essensual lip butter balm!

Living in Canada has afforded me the opportunity to try many different kinds of lip treatments/protectants. In addition, because my lips are on the ‘dry’ side-it is 99% likely for me to be carrying some kind of lip product on my person at all times. While I am not necessarily searching out “natural” products, I do focus more on ingredients when I am considering a lip balm/lip treatment. I try very hard *NOT* to wear products that contain petroleum (which I consider to be a ‘wool over the eyes’ type bandage solution). Petroleum jelly sits on top of my lips and doesn’t do anything else.  Unfortunately, that limits me from using the majority of lip treatments.

Until now….enter Kona Kare Essensual Lip Butter Balms!  100% Wonderfully natural and Made in Canada to boot!

NYC Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm 357 Apple Blueberry Pie

I’m not a huge fan of NYC.  I think it’s because nothing ever really grabs me from the line, which is strange because I don’t need to be forced to look at ANY cosmetics.  Add to that the fact that it’s called NYC and I am from NY….and it’s REALLY unbelieveable that I’m not more into this line.

Wardrobe Essentials workshop with Dior! And an Urban Ballet….curious? Read on.

I know I already did a video on this but I thought I would give you a better look at the products that I purchased.  I took a page from Alicia over at FunnyFace Beauty blog and let Mother Nature provide the perfect contrast! I feel that the snow really lets the shades ‘show.’  Some of these colors (well only the lipstick really) are from the Spring collection BUT never fear, I will certainly take the mono eyeshadows over to spring and maybe summer!
