Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick
Every now and then, because I evidently find it entertaining to try to sabotage myself, I glance over Sephora’s sale section. This time, I noticed that Kat Von D’s Studded Kiss lipstick line is clearanced for $12 each. In spite of both my No Buy and my lipstick-unfriendly Invisalign, I immediately threw Adora in my cart in hopes that it would hold out. Unsurprisingly, it didn’t; just two days later it was out of stock, along with a ton of other popular shades.
The last time this happened was with their Painted Love lipstick line a few years back. The idea of Adora going away saddened me – but then it was brought back with Studded Kiss.
This markdown and clear-out means that the only lipstick Kat Von D’s line will have are the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks and the outlying sets of Studded Kiss that remain. Although there are plenty of people who really enjoy liquid lipstick, some people (like me) just aren’t interested and won’t bother with them unless they are something exceptionally special. I find it unlikely that Kat Von D will remain without a more, “conventional,” lipstick format.
The Bottom Line
It isn’t common for me to do, but I am holding my breath for this release. If nothing else, I’d like to have Adora back in my collection. It is the most unique red I’ve encountered to date. Once my Invisalign treatment is done, I’d definitely wear the hell out of it! Fingers crossed that they don’t let this awesome shade (at the very least) die off like so many other products that were great.
