"Swipe on bold, eye-catching lip color with coveted Studded Kiss Lipstick. This innovative lipstick is formulated with Color Cushion Technology™, which combines long wear, bold color payoff, and ultrasoft comfort for audacious, feminine lip looks. Now in the exclusive, Gold Blooded shade, a remixed red with subtle gold shimmer, it features a sleek, studded white casing. This set includes seven mini Studded Kiss Lipsticks in show-stopping shades with attitude."
The packaging is a round plastic lipstick tube with a square stud design—the miniature versions mimic the full sized lipsticks perfectly. They also have a creme brulee, vanilla type scent that can be noticed, but not tasted. The deluxe sizes tend to be easier to apply due to their ever-so-lightly creamier consistency, but color payoff and performance typically didn't vary much.



Bachelorette is a medium-dark, reddish pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and mostly opaque. While it did have a drier texture, it didn't tug or drag during application and was moderately comfortable to wear, especially for this matte formula. Bachelorette lasted +6 hours and was lightly drying. (4/5)
* Kat Von D Bachelorette was similar but matte.  MAC All Fired Up was lighter, more pink.  Sephora Collection Strawberry Kissed was warmer, matte.

Coven is a light-medium, lavender with cool undertones and a matte finish. While this shade performed better than the original full sized version, it still had it's fair share of issues. It had a drier texture that tugged during application and the pigmentation was only semi-opaque. The color appeared uneven in some areas, mostly towards lip lines and flaked off, rather than faded over time. Coven wore well for +4 hours and was quite drying. (3/5)
* Kat Von D Ayesha was darker, warmer, matte.  NYX Playdate was warmer, more pink.  MAC Lavender Jade (LE) was lighter, more pink.  MAC Men Love Mystery was darker, warmer, more pink.

Gold Blooded is a medium, brightened red with gold sparkle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It applied smoothly, evenly and had nice, opaque pigmentation. This shade was creamier than the others which made it comfortable to wear. The gold sheen wasn't as noticeable once applied, as it was when swatched. Gold Blooded wore well for +7 hours before fading. (5/5)
* Kat Von D Underage Red was cooler.  Kat Von D Outlaw was more red, matte.  Sephora Collection Always Red was more red, matte.

Halo is a medium, brightened orange with gold shimmer, warm undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. This shade applied smoothly, mostly even and opaque. It had nice pigmentation and the shimmer was very noticeable, which left the lips with a nice frosted sheen. It was one of the more comfortable shades to wear due to the creamier formula. Halo lasted +6 hours before fading. (5/5)

NaYeon is a medium-dark black with silver sparkle, neutral undertones and a creamy, frost finish. This shade applied smoothly, mostly even and semi-opaque. It had quite a bit of slip which I felt caused the color to gravitate towards lip lines and imperfections. This shade would likely benefit best being paired over a lip pencil or matte lipstick. NaYeon wore well for +4 hours before fading. (4/5)
* Kat Von D Slayer was darker, more matte.  Kat Von D Witches was darker, opaque, matte.  MAC Hautecore was darker, creamier.

Noble is a light-medium, peach nude with hints of pink, warm undertones and a matte finish. This shade lightly tugged at lips during application due to the drier consistency and had mostly opaque pigmentation. The color really liked to cling and accentuate any chapped areas or imperfections on the lips. Noble lasted +4 hours and was drying over time. (4/5)
* Bite Beauty Retsina was muted, less pink.  Kat Von D Agatha was lighter, muted.  Kat Von D Noble was more orange, matte.  Clinique Beige Pop was creamier.

Sexer is a medium, brightened fuchsia pink with hints of iridescent blue, cool undertones and a frosted, metallic finish. This shade had a drier consistency, but applied smoothly, evenly and mostly opaque—the pigmentation was buildable. Sexer wore well for +7 hours and felt drying over time. (5/5)
* Kat Von D Bauhau5 was darker, matte.  MAC What's Going On? (LE) was warmer, glossy.  MAC Flat Out Fabulous was warmer, more pink.  Too Faced Melted Fuchsia was brighter, more pink.

Wolvesmouth is a medium-dark, berry red with multi-colored shimmer, warm undertones and a metallic finish. This shade applied smoothly, mostly evenly and semi-opaque. It had similar performance to the original full sized version—the shimmer texture was noticeable on the lips, but it was comfortable to wear nonetheless. Wolvesmouth lasted +6.5 hours before fading. (5/5)
* Bite Beauty Aubergine was warmer, more pink.  MAC Rebel was lighter, cooler.  Sephora Collection Blackberry Sorbet was darker, muted, matte.

Overall, this is a nicely valued set that offers a good variety of shades and finishes from the range. If you've been wanting to try out the Studded Kiss Lipstick formula, this set is an excellent way, as you're getting to try eight shades for the price of two full sized lipsticks. The metallic shades typically perform and apply easier than the mattes, but they are a longer-lasting formula overall!
