Top to bottom, left to right:Kat Von D Studded Kiss lipstick in Lovecraft you were warned that these would be cropping up! 

Smashbox Photo Finish Light Primer after the news that maybe Smashbox are ok and cruelty free after all I’m desperate to try this primer! It always comes recommended and well reviewed for those with oily skin.

BareMinerals BareSkin Pure Brightening Foundation This is new from BareMinerals this year and I’m very intrigued about it. Skin care serum and mineral foundation in one, sort of like a super bb I guess? 

Mask of Magnaminty I used to use this allll the time but had to cut it out as I just couldn’t afford it on a regular basis. My skin is really starting to miss it though so might have to cave and get a new pot.

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Swatches

I reblogged a lip swatch post that’s been cropping up a lot recently with a few of the Kat Von D Studded Kiss shades and it inspired me to look into the line a bit more in depth. I’ve never bothered with Kat Von D before because I was under the impression it wasn’t available in the UK. Wrong!

I found this website (which I am yet to use myself but does come with some good recommendations and reviews) so anyone in the UK who’s after US brands that are yet to jump across the pond should check it out! The prices are a little more expensive bit still fairly reasonable; one of these lipsticks is £24.99 which isn’t too much more expensive than say a Lipstick Queen or Nars Lipstick. Considering that covers import fees and getting it from the US to the UK I’d say thats not bad at all.
And I hear they also take requests if you post to their Facebook page!

Anyway, onto the point of my post, I found a great blog post here featuring the following swatches for the entire Kat Von D Studded Kiss range:

I’m not sure there needed to be 30 shades as several of them are very similar but there should definitely be something for everyone amongst all this. And the design of the bullet is fantastic! Black and covered in studs, whats not to like?! Expect a few of these cropping up in my Weekly Want’s soon…

Again, to be totally clear these fabulous swatches are *not* my work and were from the link posted above!

Whether Kat Von D make up is cruelty free or not seems to be a sticking point for a lot of people - its listed as ‘not cruelty free’ on Logical Harmony but some bloggers such as My Beauty Bunny say it IS still cruelty free. I can’t find an original source from where this information comes from but I’d trust her researching and opinion.

Derp face! All I can see in this photo is my nose; hilarious.
Love my new Lipstick Queen lippy in ‘Natural’! And I love even more how it’s a Natural Sinner haha
I think I tried every red shade in the range looking for a subtle red, yet all of the Lipstick Queen reds come out pinky on me! Who’d have thought a shade named natural is exactly what I was after the whole time?!?

FOTD for the wedding I went to on Friday! I went for a subtle red lip, grey smoky eyes and matte black nails. 

The background in this pic is my gorgeous Hearts and Roses 50s style halter neck dress that I wore 

I did have a photo of my face but accidentally deleted it in a drunken stupor on the way home.
