Kat von D Lightning Sheer Lip Gloss — Stormy: Swatches & Review
I love lip glosses from Kat von D, version with full coverage is my favorite . Such as Hellbent, which I’ve reviewed some time ago. So I decided to go for sheer version of this gloss. I took sheer but darker color — Kat von D Lightning Sheer Lip Gloss — Stormy.
I feared there’ll be too much shimmer or too dark color, I don’t really like shimmering lip glosses. Still this particular one was above my expectations:
+ sheer texture (as promised), light coverage but visible color;
+ applies easily;
+ nice shimmer which you don’t feel and don’t find around your lips in a while;
+ berry scented, no taste;
— could be more lasting, but it really depens on how much you eat or drink;
Stromy — is a sheer plum color with golden and magenta shimmer. It is not very dark and no drama in it as it is sheer, still you can see the color. Shimmer makes overal look softer and it doesn’t go away around your lips or elsewhere (I hate when this happens with shimmer) and you don’t feel it on your lips.
Availability Sephora US exclusive.
Price: 18$ for 8 ml.
Limited edition? No.
Summary: I love this lipgloss — it applies smoothly, lasts for a while, has a beautiful color. Shimmer is fine and as the gloss is sheer the overal impression is charming and not so dark as you could expect from plum color. The packaging is nice also.
I think Sephora is selling them out, but still you can buy this color and more with a great discount.
