Here is what the box looks like…


When you pull out the plastic tray, this is how the lipsticks are nestled in.

You receive 7 mini’s, with the traditional black packaging, and one limited edition exclusive shade in white packaging.

The KVD logo is on the top of each studded lipstick tube.

I really wanted this lipstick set, along with the eyeshadow palette, because I mean just look at all the pretty colors…..

Here are the swatches of all 8 shades next to each other.


Now let’s talk about each individual shade, because my opinion on them really varies shade to shade.

Let’s start with the one full sized lipstick, Gold Blooded.

This lipstick comes in white packaging instead of the standard black.

The shade is described as a remixed red with subtle gold shimmer.

Gold Blooded went on pretty nice, especially considering it has shimmer in it. There is a slight grit feel if you’re really trying to find it. The color itself isn’t my favorite; it pulls very warm/orange on me and is very vibrant in real life. Seeing as how this is the only full sized lipstick, I was hoping to love it more.



Noble is described as a matte petal pink nude, and is a cult favorite.

Before receiving this lip set in the mail, I was sure I would love the shade Noble. However, sadly, I don’t. This shade is described as petal pink nude, but on my lips the pink really doesn’t come through strong and instead it looks like concealer lips. Just not flattering on me, but I have seen this shade on many people and it looks beautiful. I wish I could pull it off, especially since I was excited to try this shade.

This shade will look horrible on your lips if they are not in perfect condition. My lips are dry year round, and you can see how it clung to every single dry patch it could find on my lips. It also goes on a bit patchy, but does even out easily.



Halo is described as a neon clementine.

If you like bright orange shades, Halo will be your jam. It’s pretty close in tone to the full size lipstick from this set, but more orange and none of the glitter. It does have a slight metallic finish. I do like orange lipsticks, but don’t wear them near often enough to justify getting a full size — which is why I liked the minis in this set. I just don’t even know if I wear bright orange enough to justify a mini size either.



Bachelorette is described as a matte reddish fuchsia, and is a cult favorite.

I actually really liked this shade! I’m not a red lip wearer, but I will rock a bright pink lip like it’s my natural lip color. Bachelorette is the perfect “red lip” for those of us that don’t wear red but are full on comfortable in bold pink shades. It’s just pink enough, even though it looks way more red in the tube. I liked the formula on this one too; it went on smooth and felt comfortable. It also has a nice finish and wasn’t patchy.



Sexer is described as an iridescent fluorescent pink.

I’ve heard so much about this shade and was excited it was in this lip set. This is definitely a bright pink; not for the faint of heart. In the pics it doesn’t show just how neon bright it is… it looks a bit more fuchsia in these pics, but t
