Sigh. My wallet is going to hateeeee me. Have ya'll seen this year's holiday sets and exclusives? I'm legit drooling over so many. *cough* I'm looking at you Smashbox Double Exposure Palette *cough* Personally, I love holiday sets because they're a fab way of trying out products you've always been interested in or wanted to try out.

I've been dying to try out Kat Von D's Studded Kiss Lipsticks for the longest time. Kat always comes out with the most insane colors and finishes but sometimes I'm a little nervous to commit to a full size. When I spotted this holiday set, I ordered immediately! 

The Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick Set includes nine 0.04 oz lip shades including four reds, three statement colors and two classic colors in metallic, matte and shimmer finishes. Each is infused with Vitamin A, C and E and has a nice creme brulee scent. The packaging is totally badass with a black studded finish!

Agatha is a matte pale peach nude. Bachelorette is a matte reddish fuchsia. Wonderchilde is an iridescent neon lilac. Countess is a matte hot orange red. Sexer is an iridescent fluorescent pink. Hexagram is a matte blood red. Adora is a metallic golden red. Mรถtorhead is a matte black cherry. Lovecraft is a matte mauve pink.

Out of this entire set, I only had issues with two of the nine lipsticks. Agatha clinged to every single dry spot on my lip. I definitely recommend exfoliating before using that one. Wonderchilde was a bit of a bummer. It was a bit more sheer than I thought it would be and was a bit patchy. The rest of the lipsticks were an absolute dream to work with. Both Adora and Sexer (metallics) were way smoother on the lips than I thought they'd be given the finish. Besides Agatha, the mattes weren't drying nor did they cling and settle into my lips. My top three faves would definitely be Bachelorette, Motorhead and Lovecraft. Which ones are yours?
