Kat Von D Foiled Love Lipsticks

When my sister came to visit back in November, we went to Sephora. A picture on the Kat Von D display caught my eye and I decided I must have whatever lipstick she was wearing in the picture. I am not sure which one it was so I got two of them (JUST IN CASE, lol!). They are the new Foiled Love lipsticks and they are frosty as all hell!! Perhaps frosted lipstick is coming back in style? I'm actually kind of feelin' it, It is nice to have darker lipsticks with a different finish.

THE PACKAGING

 
Very nice, as usual. The lipstick tubes are metallic silver.
 
THE SWATCHES
 
The first picture is more colour-accurate, the second picture just shows how frosty they are.

 
Top: Oh My Goth
Bottom: FTW

 
I could not resist the names of these as you may have guessed. They apply slightly sheer but they look fine that way. If you wanted full opacity, you could wear a lip pencil under them. They are not particularly long-wearing, but due to the fact that they are somewhat sheer, they are quite forgiving for such dark colours. The colour Adora is also part of this line but it was released a long time ago (swatch here).
 
Has anyone tried any of the lighter shades of these?

February Theme: Outerwear


 
 
I just about wrote "underwear" for the theme title when I was typing it in. LET'S NOT GO THERE! Anyway, in the spring and fall, I like to wear faux leather jackets to keep warm. I like them because they add a bit of edginess to an outfit. I enjoy how they look like a part of an outfit rather than just a jacket; in my opinion, they really pull an outfit together. Here's a few pictures of me "mainstreaming"
about in my favourite faux leather jackets.



JACKET: Le Chateau. It can also be worn open, it has a nice drape to it.
SCARF: World of Trout (A store in my hometown, Zara has similar ones.) I LOVE wearing scarves with my jackets!
Top: Plastik Wrap.
Skirt: Target.
Socks: Walmart.
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell.
 


 
JACKET: Bebe. I tend to get the side-eye from people (not that I care, I've become quite accustomed to getting the old side-eye) when I wear this. Perhaps it's a bit loud? I suppose it does have shoulder pads and it IS bright red....
Top + Tights: H&M.
Necklace, Skirt, + Cuff: Le Chateau.
Watch: Nixon.
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell.
 
 
JACKET + SUNGLASSES: Le Chateau.
TOP + JEANS: Guess.
NECKLACE: Aldo Accessories. It has tiny little spikes, perfect for daytime!
SHOES: Shi by Journeys (Found these on one of the shoe posts on Coffin Kitsch!)
 
I love jackets and scarves!! I'm off to check out everyone else's theme post while drinking as much coffee as possible!
