Current Obsession: Kat Von D Beauty

Our picks from the latest Kat Von D launch at Debenhams here in the UK! - Words by Hayley / Pictures by Hayley...

Soooooooo, some tres exciting news for us UK gals (sorry to my non-UK pals reading this, but we’re all just so excited about this!) – Kat Von D beauty hit Debenhams last week and we all just *kind of lost our shit a little bit. Well, actually a lot. I headed down to the Oxford Street store on the night of the launch to check out the stand, and to pick up some tips and advice from Kat’s makeup artists on counter. I had a browse on counter (albeit a slightly stressful browse) as the counter was absolutely jam-packed, which confirms one thing – you girls are just excited about the launch as I am!

Let me tell you a lil’ summin summin, last month in New York I was fan-girling so hard over the Kat Von D counter; I wanted literally all of the things, but managed to refrain myself and walked away with just a liquid lipstick in Lolita (AKA the best shade in the world), for about 2 weeks it was all I wore, my other lipsticks just didn’t get a look in at all. Then I went to a wedding, got crazy drunk and lost it. I was actually DEVO and realizing the next day that I’d lost it, just tipped me over in my hungover state.

THEN… the Kat Von D counter launched in London and I picked up another Lolita and all was right in the world again (I jest, but I was well chuffed). I also picked up some tattoo liner which I bloody love, some matte foundation and some concealer!

So, here’s a little overview of my favourite products and why…

'Everlasting' Liquid Lipsticks... 

 So, I’ve already explained my love for Lolita but it’s honestly my BAE and go-to when it comes to lip product, I hardly wear anything else since I’ve got it and always receive so many compliments on it. It has a lovely matte finish but doesn’t crumble like some lipsticks (aint that so sexy tho?!), the colour is super pigmented too! The only thing I find is that I have to re-apply a couple of times a day (although, I find that with most lipsticks too!).

'Lock It' Liquid Foundation...

 I abso-bloody-lutely love this stuff! I’d heard loads of people raving about it so thought I’d give it a whirl and oh boy I wasn’t disappointed, it’s quite unlike every foundation I have to – in the fact that it’s just so god darn amazing. The finish is matte but it doesn’t look cakey, the coverage is super full so even when my period is giving lots of lovely red, angry spots – this foundation covers a multitude of sins and doesn’t budge all day. I wore it out to London the other day and was so surprised that my makeup looked fresh AF when I got home! My skin is naturally oily so most foundations tend to leave me super shiny or just slide off, this one genuinely stayed put all day, and with a press of powder, it lasted all day, shine free… all hail Kat Von D – the makeup goddess!




'Lock It' Cream Concealer

I never really know what to say about concealer, other that it conceals pretty darn well. I’ve been a little stressed and over tired lately so eye bags are NOT my friend right not, this concealer is super pigmented and helps to sort out my eye bag pals. Along with my other pals; the spots *inserts crying emoji*, my skin has been SO bad lately; I think after I was ill and travelling a lot it just all came out in my skin and made me feel so insecure. I’ve been using this ever since I bought it and am loving it so much!

'Tattoo Liner' Liquid Eyeliner

I was first introduced to this around a year ago when my best friend had ordered it online (she’s a MUA and heard some amazing things and wanted to give it a whirl herself), I genuinely couldn’t believe how good it was… like R U REAL LIFE HUN?! I’ll be honest with you gals, I’m so useless at applying liquid eyeline but the application is super easy on this, so you’ll love it if you’re a liner novice like me! The lasting power is unreal – this will not budge from your face girls until you ready to cleanse like 3 times post night out, K?

    I’ve been thinking of buying her liquid lipsticks this May, but am apprehensive about it because Lolita and Lolita II doesn’t look too good on my skin tone. Might give it another swatch to see if I should get it or not. I LOVE her Studded Lipsticks though, they’re so creamy and moisturizing! Lovely review, Hayley. 🙂

      Definitely give it a whirl love because I swatched it on my hand and it’s completely different on my lips and I LOVE the shade! x

    I’ve bought some bits for my friend’s birthday – she’s a big fan of the woman herself, so thought she’d love this make up. It looks really good, and I’ve heard such good things about it’s staying power!

    I’ve actually never tried Kat Von D products before, mainly because they haven’t been available in the UK so I’m super excited they’re finally coming so I can try some out!

    I went into the store today not planning to buy anything and just browse but then I saw the liquid lipsticks that dry matte in the colour Outlaw and I am a sucker for red matte lippie so of course I had to get it. I love how vibrant and intense the colours are!
