Fall and winter call for vampy lips so I make sure to keep my stash loaded with them every year. This year, I’ve been feeling a little daring with my vampy lips so I’ve been playing with different colors I don’t typically reach for. Like browns and now blue. Yes, blue. Blue lips are starting to become more acceptable in the traditional makeup world because they can actually be surprisingly flattering. Like Kat Von D’s Poe Studded Kiss Lipstick.
Poe is a deep blackened navy blue loaded with pink, purple and gold micro-glitter that gives its matte finish a funky metallic shift. It has a light sweet vanilla scent and really cute studded black packaging that makes Poe feel even more edgy and chic than it already looks in the tube.
Upon application, Poe glides across the lips smoothly and evenly with intense pigmentation and a creamy texture. Like most vampy mattes, Poe has a bit of trouble adhering to the inner part of my bottom lip. But it manages to stay put for around 3-4 hours if you layer it on a bit–unlike Estee Lauder’s Extrovert.
Minus the slight fading on my bottom lip, Poe manages to solidly stay put for around 6-7 hours before I start to notice slight signs of fading. It can get a little drying as it begins to wear off but I was dying for lip balm throughout the day so it really isn’t too bad. Kat Von D’s Studded Lipsticks seems to have a lot of mixed reviews but Poe is a complete win in my book. The color is extremely unique and it looks beautiful on a variety of complexions from fair to deep. Plus, it lasts me pretty much all day while racking up tons of compliments.
If you have the heart and confidence to rock out in a deep blue metallic matte lip then Kat Von D Poe Studded Kiss Lipstick is hands down the vampy lip for your this fall!
