Story behind these purchases:
I was in Paso Robles at Tooth and Nail Winery and one of the girls pouring tastings was so pretty and her makeup was flawless that I [naturally] had to ask her about her makeup. Her lip color was what I was really curious about, and she said it was Lovecraft by Kat Von D. For whatever reason, I assumed it was Kat Von D’s liquid lipstick, so when I went to Sephora to look for it all I saw was Lovesick (thinking I had misheard the name). After swatching it at Sephora, I didn’t really love the color (and I didn’t love the consistency of the last liquid lipstick I bought from her), so I didn’t purchase it. After 2 month when I was in Sephora again looking for lipgloss, I happened to notice that Kat Von D had some lipsticks with cute packaging and I saw Lovecraft. I FLIPPED out got super excited when I swatched it ANNND of course it was sold out. I went to every Sephora remotely close to me and nada. I even spoke to to all the sales associates and they all said that they hadn’t received it in months. At that point I gave in and bought it on the Kat Von D website and paid the shipping. Then I saw that Sephora launched the Studded Beloved Lip Trio, so I bought it and Lolita. 3 full sized lipsticks for $45 was way too good to pass up.

All the trio colors are available separate as well.
I did wear Lovecraft the other day, and I LOVED it. It’s very pretty on (I was worried it would be a little ashy). It’s very silky for a matte lipstick, and it’s not very drying. I wore it from about 12pm to 8pm. I ate and drank and it held up pretty well. I only started wishing I had balm around 6/7pm ish.
If you have any questions, let me know!
