Hey my lovely people! A couple of music observations, tied to two of my current favorite shows – “The Voice” and “American Horror Story”. #1 – the new Gwen Stefani song/video – utter disappointment. I’ve tried, but I just can’t. #2 – Jessica Lange covering the fabulous “Gods & Monsters” by Lana Del Rey – yeah, give it to me Ms. Lange. I loved it. Despite the fact that AHS has used two current songs that are totes anachronistic. My trick-or-treat bag runneth over with that one.
So, onto my Kat Von D Agatha, Countess, Adora Lipstick Review!
This is actually part 2 of my Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick Set trilogy. Stay tuned for the final three!
I had to include another photo of the cool packaging.
Here they are up close! Again, totally beautiful colors. Descriptions from Sephora:
Agatha – “Matte Pale Peach Nude”.
Countess – “Matte Hot Orange Red”.
Adora – “Metallic Golden Red”.
Again, the descriptions are right on!
I am starting with Agatha. This color is definitely swoon-worthy for all of you nude lipstick fans.
If you are a regular reader, you know I cannot wear nudes. So keep that in mind!
I had a hard time even seeing where I was applying this. I actually think the shade is lighter than my skin tone.
!Boo! I think this is pretty scary (just in time for Halloween). This looked so gawd awful on me that did not even wear it long enough to see how it performed. I will say it applied very smoothly and did not skip at all considering it is a matte. I think it is a gorgeous shade (though not for me), and if you can pull of these types of nudes, I would definitely check this one out.
Aaaah, now you’re talking! My favorite out of this bunch!
I have come back to life!!! This is a super gorgeous color, and I think it would actually work on most skin tones, as it is not totally cool or warm. As with the other super pigmented mattes I’ve tried so far, this was very comfortable to wear, and lasted through eating and drinking throughout the day. Probably my second favorite behind Motorhead.
I do like Adora, but I wish it was a tad more red.
It is metallic, but not over the top. It has the most beautiful gold flecks throughout. You can see it better in the arm swatch. This is more of a satin finish, but it does have lasting power, and fades to a really pretty red/gold.
So far, I am in love with these lipsticks!
Again, thanks for reading! kxoxo
