Kat Von D Changes Studded Kiss Lipstick Formula

Kat Von D Is Changing Its Studded Kiss Lipstick Formula — Here's Why That's a Good Thing

Who is ready for the limited edition @katvondbeauty #ROCKCANDY collection?! This limited edition collection of electric shades will launch in a set April 11! 💘 Yes, those are color matched studded components! But more importantly, this will be my way of introducing you to the new and improved #StuddedKiss formula I will be introducing! I know I haven't announced this yet, but for the last year, I've been working like crazy with my head of Product Development [@nmcg30] at @katvondbeauty to take my #StuddedKiss lipstick formula to the next level! I plan on relaunching the entire #StuddedKiss collection in a new and improved formula this next year [as well as adding many new shades]! So, this is what you guys can look forward to experiencing with the new formula: Intense pigment, smooth glide [no dragging!], full coverage, all-day wear, delicious creme brûlée fragrance we already love so much. And of course, like always this is a #crueltyfree and 100% #vegan formulation. *follow @katvondbeauty for more details on the #rockcandy launch! And special thanks to @juscallmetara for helping me test this formula and creating these immaculate swatches!

If you're a longstanding fan of Kat Von D's Studded Kiss lipstick formula, then have a seat — we have some tough news for you. Kat Von D herself recently took to Instagram to share that she plans on relaunching — i.e., changing — the entire range next year. She explained that she's been working closely with her VP of product development, Nancy McGuire, to take the formula "to the next level."

Don't be too nervous about the reformulation. In addition to keeping the product cruelty-free and vegan, there are some new features to look forward to. Kat rattled off "intense pigment, smooth glide (no dragging!), full coverage, all-day wear," but we're most intrigued by the newest upgrade . . . a creme brulée fragrance that Kat explained the team "already love[s] so much."

It sounds to us like the new iteration will be a solid bullet form of the basically semipermanent Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, so we're jazzed about the changes. Anything that makes an edgy pout even more durable and comfortable is a plus! Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
