Got to try Kat Von D’s new lipstick collection for free to sample from Influenster. Although I was given the product for free all the opinions in this review are my own.

I've been lucky, I have had many opportunities to try new company's lipstick products and I have to say I was a little disappointed that I got yet another nude shade with all the colours available...

Pros to this makeup:

- 100% Vegan, never been tested on animals. Coming from an animal lover this is very important to me!

- Price: At $23 it's a very affordable option as opposed to other brands.

I'm killing to try out the Plan 9 (green) or the Roxy (dark purple) 

Cons:

- Does not hold on. After about an hour after application I kissed my boyfriend on the cheek and most of the lipstick came off and was smeared all over his face.

- They sent me a nude color. I can only do so much with nude lipsticks (as I have 5 or 6 from other samples...) I would have loved to test out a real color to really see how vibrant it is.

I am tempted to purchase a different color to really see how the color holds up but the lack of hold concerns me.  This product has a lot going for it but at the end of it all I am just underwhelmed.

Review: Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Perfume

I was lucky enough to receive Kat Von D's new exclusive perfumes for free to review from Influenster! If you want to get the opportunity to review free stuff as well just click here. It's a lot of fun and you get a ton of insight over the newest products in beauty, food and more!

Saint

The saint scent is fresh and subtle... almost innocent? This was nice enough for everyday use without having to worry about being over bearing on smell. This definitely isn't your grandmother's perfume.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sinner

Now THIS is definitely not your grandmother's perfume. Sinner is bold and almost spicy like the cinnamon hearts you get at Valentine's Day.

The scent of sinner reminds you immediately of a promiscuous evening out wearing a little black dress and red hot lipstick.

 

 

 

 

 

The Verdict

Both are quality scents, I've worked in places that sold knock off eau du parfums (for $7) and they were the nastiest smelling bottle of chemicals my nose had every experienced. These were both appealing and worth their retail prices but my favorite was definitely Saint. It's relaxing scent is perfect for my everyday use.
