I do not know how the Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Backstage Bambi ever escaped my eagle eye for bright pink lipsticks, but it did. Until recently.
I was aware of the Foiled Love Liquid Lipstick version of it, which I swatched here and was none too impressed with because of the oh-so-80’s finish. But this, THIS is what I’m talkin’ about!
Love these tubes with the clear bottom so you can see the actual color inside.
Backstage Bambi is a cool-toned hot pink creme. It’s fairly creamy and nicely pigmented. It settles just a tiny bit into lip lines, but you really only see it when super close-up.
It has a matte finish and stays put nicely. It does start to feel a little dry on my lips after awhile, but wearing it over a lip balm helps. It doesn’t have a taste but a very slight lipstick-y scent, which isn’t very noticeable.
I’m glad I found it and own it now!
Availability: Sephora only.
Pricing: $19.00 for 0.11 oz.
