January 2018 Empties

I woke up on Saturday morning with a sore throat. Ugh, I so don’t want to be sick this month!

I finished the 30 days for the Yoga True program, and have thus far managed to keep up with a daily yoga practice. I’m about to hop on the mat despite feeling sick, and then throw myself into a nice hot bath to try to steam away my cold.

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick (OG Lolita) Review

Hello, hello!

I was sent the Kat Von D Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick Voxbox from Influenster in the shade OG Lolita. If you follow me on InstaGram, you’ve seen a few photos that I’d posted. [all info in italics taken from the Sephora website]

What it is:
A breakthrough new lipstick combining super-creamy color and weightless, comfortable long wear.

What it does:
Introducing the new and reborn Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick—the creamiest, most cushiony and unbelievably pigmented lipstick to ever cross your lips.

Discover your new go-to color from Kat Von D’s biggest, boldest shade range. The collection includes 40 shades in three finishes, and features rich reds, bold berries, and neutrals for every complexion. You’ll also find beloved Everlasting Liquid Lipstick shades, now in the Studded Kiss formulation. 

See and feel the difference instantly. Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick features a high-chroma content for pure, vivid color in a revolutionary new base formula that’s crystal clear, super-soft, and virtually weightless. Made with smooth, spherical pigments and lip-nourishing ingredients, it’s never been easier to coat your lips in creamy, comfortable color.

I’d tried the original formulation a few years ago, and didn’t love it. I found it to be very drying on the lips which for me make a lipstick unwearable!

The new formulation is highly pigmented, comfortable, non-drying and long wearing. I received the shade OG Lolita, a dusty rose shade in satin matte finish – and you all know how much I love rose based shades! I’ve been wearing it non-stop since it arrived in my mailbox.

There are several shades that I’m adding to my wish list – Adora, Lovecraft, Sanctuary, Hawkwind, Cathedral, Misfit, Hexagram, Motorhead, and Gold Blooded (just to name a few, haha!)

Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner in Lolita Review

Hello, hello!

Today I have a little review of one of the new Everlasting Lip Liners from Kat Von D Beauty in the iconic Lolita shade. I was one of the lucky Influensters who received the VoxBox for testing and review purposes.

Description is taken from the Sephora website:

What it is:

What it does:
At last, a lip liner in a boundary-breaking spectrum of 30 shades, from classic nudes and reds to fearless bolds you can only expect from Kat Von D. Everlasting Lip Liner lives up to the promise of Kat’s beloved Everlasting Liquid Lipstick with comfortable, long wear and a matte, high-pigment formula.

I find that most lip liners are quite drying on the lips, but this one is surprisingly comfortable and super long wearing. Very highly pigmented – this stuff does not budge until you remove it!

Lolita is described as being a chestnut rose shade. I’ve worn it on its own, as well as combined with some of my fave lipsticks. Here it is swatched with a few from my collection:
