Hello everyone! Today we’re going to check out the last swatch in my makeup hand me down haul from my sister. Recently, we swatched all kinds of good stuff from L’Oreal and Revlon to Kat Von D and we will be checking out the final shade in her sample pack called Vampira in this post. Similar to the other Kat Von D colors that we looked at, I would not wear the shade Vampira. But, it actually is my favorite one of the three so take a look and let’s discuss:
Upon first inspection of the marketing and sample pod, I thought that Vampira was going to be a really dark purple. But, once swatched, I realized it was more of a mulberry with some deep red garnet thrown in for good measure. I absolutely loved the shade once I knew what it actually was and the color reminded me of the stain you get on your lips when you drink way too much red wine!
Despite appreciating the color, I would never wear Vampira. I have only tried lipstick in the purple family one time and ended up looking like a living dead girl and I am definitely not going through that again!
I consider myself an extremely edgy girl but I thought that, for the most part, each Kat Von D shade that I swatched was too bold for my liking. And I literally never say that. I felt like all of the colors were way over the top for my fairly simple makeup routine and I wouldn’t feel like myself if I was wearing one of the lippies.
I think the Kat Von D Studded Kiss collection is great for the makeup risk takers and I commend them for using such shocking shades. But, for gals like me with only a few signature lippie colors, I don’t think I would recommend the collection. The “wow” factor of each hue is just too much to feel comfortable in, no matter how fierce they are!
What is your favorite bold makeup to wear? What is the craziest color of lipstick you own? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
