Kat Von D Beauty in Love Me Beauty box September 2016

October 16, 2016

As we all know by now, Kat Von D Beauty launched here in the UK last month and opened their first UK beauty counter in Debenhams Oxford Street London on October 5th. I can't wait to get down to London to shop on the counter and get shade matched for the highly recommended 'Lock It' foundation.

Last month Love Me Beauty had KvD Beauty products available, this was before the official launch so it was very exciting to be able to get my hands on some of the products early.
Love Me Beauty is a monthly subscription box that lets you choose your own products so you'll always receive products you want, each month you get 60 credits on your account and can choose from lots of different beauty treats. I tend to always pick up the makeup items but I have had Tangle Teezer hair brushes and Eco tools makeup brushes in the past from this subscription. Each month your items come in a small makeup bag, I received an Aztec printed bag which is big enough to fit lots of makeup in.

Of course I wanted to get my hands on the KvD Beauty products so made my beauty picks as soon as possible, with my 60 credits I was able to get all 3 of the KvD items including; an Ink Liner in shade 'Trooper', an Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in shade 'Outlaw' and a Studded Kiss Lipstick in shade 'Magick'. Each product is a sample sized which are the perfect size for popping in your handbag.

Ink Liner in shade Trooper (black)
In September I also purchased the special edition KvD Beauty London Calling set from Debenhams (read my post here), this set had a Tattoo Liner included which is very very similar to this Ink liner. I was impressed with the high quality of this liner from first application, the calligraphy shaped tip makes applying the product easy and effortless. After just one stroke I was left with a black line on my eye lid that did hold up against my current liner however there was a little shade fading throughout the day which I didn't get with the Tattoo liner. I will continue to use this liner but will probably opt to purchase the Tattoo liner not this Ink Liner in the future.

Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in shade Outlaw
This is a bold and bright red shade which is just gorgeous, I do enjoy wearing a red lip especially when I'm going out. To achieve an amazing red lip look you need a product that's long-lasting, applies smoothly and feels comfortable; this everlasting liquid lipstick does just that! The wand included in the lid gives me smooth application and theres no need for any other tools. I also found I didn't need to use a lip liner when wearing this lipstick although liner is useful it wasn't needed, the liquid lipstick drys within a few seconds leaving a matte finish; my favourite. I can't wait to try other shades in the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick range.

Studded Kiss Lipstick in shade Magick 
This is my favourite product of the 3 I received mainly because of the packaging, usually with mini/sample sized products the packaging is different to the full size items but not with KvD Beauty. This Studded Kiss lipstick is in the same beautiful and edgy packaging as the full size, its complete with a stud-like design all over it and the KvD logo on top of the lid; all the art work for KvD Beauty's products is drawn/designed by Kat Von D herself. As for the shade, it's pinky nude shade which would suit anyone I think, it's an perfect everyday shade because its not an in your face colour. The lipstick has a satin finish and is super easy to apply, actually the size of the lipstick makes it even easier to apply than a full size lipstick so this was an advantage. I will be purchasing a full size lipstick in this shade as soon as this mini has run out.

This month Love Me Beauty have Benefit, Makeup Forever and much more for you to pick from; items range from 10 to 30 credits each and you can always buy add-on credits if you want more beauty treats. Interested? Sign up here.
