Kat Von D Rosary Painted Love Lipstick

A few months ago I purchased Kat Von D's Starstruck Lipstick Set. Regretfully, I never had the chance to wear them because the majority of the shades aren't too "work" or "casual" friendly, with the exception of a few. I decided to do posts on each of the individual lipsticks because they're too different in texture, finish, sheen and staying power.

Here I am wearing the shade "Rosary". This picture was taken directly under artificial light. This is one of my favorite shades in the set and it's also the darkest. It's described to be a burgundy shade, but on my NC25 skin, it's more of a very deep blood red. It's not a true red, but it isn't a true burgundy either. It's a beautiful mix of both.

I noticed that it is slightly darker in certain lights. Depending on how you wear it, it can turn out looking anywhere from sultry and vampy to classy and sophisticated. I wouldn't say this is appropriate for a work setting unless you're working at a fashion/beauty setting. It's a bit dark and I find that it can look a bit overwhelming. 

The lasting power is about 4-6 hours. The texture is creamy, smooth and it gives of a semi-matte sheen. 

As you can see, parts of my lips look lighter. This is what happens when you don't have super supple lips and wear Kat Von D lipsticks...I find the KVD Lipsticks don't have moisturizing formula's. The entire line will either dry out your lips completely, or do absolutely nothing for you. But, because the colors are to die for, extra lip exfoliating and moisturizing makes it worth it. 

In comparison to the "Foiled Love" Collection, KVD's "Painted Love" Collection is much more hydrating.
