Kat Von D Haul : Slaying with the Slayer Lipstick

As a lover of all things dark and gothic, you’d think that owning and wearing black lipstick would be a non-event, and in fact, a given fact of life for me. Like System of a Down eloquently put it ‘Wake up, grab a brush and put on a little goth make up!‘.


Well nope – every time I have tried black lipstick I have ended up with either :

Beetlejuice lips: streaky, dry and crazy looking;

♦ Looking like Ace Frehley from KISS, the carbohydrate crisis years: I HATE THIS BAND SO MUCH. And I’d rather look like a masked dude from Slipkot rather than any of the KISS band members.

However things changed after last weekend … After I swinged by the Kat Von D counter at Debenhams and went HAM on her make up products.

I indulged in a make up session and was curious to see if I could pull off black lippy … The lady at the counter was super helpful and she picked the Studded Kiss Slayer Lipstick for me – I am not gonna lie I squealed with delight when I saw it (I think Slayer started playing in my head as well).

Here I am pouting in black :


This lipstick :

♦ lasted ALL DAY and even survived a lunch at Leon – where these selfies have been taken (this is what happens when a girl has gotta eat AND immortalise make up)

♦  Did not streak a la Alice Cooper;

♦  Felt hydrating, and I have dry lips which tend to reject a lot of lipsticks by committing micro-suicide (yes, am talking about you picky skin particles leaving me every day)

I will be reviewing the other products in the coming days. In the meantime, here is a pic of me not giving a damn about the rain and still trying to pose with my newly painted face.


Well done Kat Von D!

    Ooh! I have been eyeing this lipstick forever but never tried it because black has just always looked messy, even when applied perfectly. I own a black lipstick from Hard Candy but only ever used it to do a black and red ombré lip

    But this looks amazing and has me seriously considering a purchase! Thanks!

      Exactly the same problem I had ! They are usually streaky and uneven looking. Try it out in store, you won’t be disappointed:) x
