In early January 2018, Kat Von D relaunched her Star Studded Kiss Crème Lipsticks. Longtime users of these lipsticks may notice not much physical difference between the relaunch and the old ones, and this is primarily down to the fact that this is a re-formulation of the line.

Kat Von D Star Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick in OG Lolita

I was sent the shade OG Lolita from the Kat Von D Star Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick range from Influenster.

Influenster, for those unaware, is a web site where anyone can sign up to receive free product to try out. You can sign up here if you’re interested.

Kat Von D Star Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick

The lipstick packaging reminds me soooo much of the belts I used to wear back in the early 00s. (And honestly, it’s making me a little bit nostalgic for them!) The packaging is solid, but not overly weighty. It has a nice snap shut with an inner mechanism that ensures the studs on the outside of the packaging always line up when the lipstick is snapped closed. It’s a small touch, but a very neat one nonetheless.

The lipstick bullet has the KVD logo embossed on it and the lipstick itself has a faintly sweet smell – a little bit like vanilla, and a little like caramel.

The entire range of lipstick is vegan and cruelty free – which is always a huge point for KVD – she likes to ensure her products are harm-free for animals. The lipstick range also promises to be a high-pigment matte finish with long-wearability. (Although I can’t find the length of wear stated anywhere.)

Kat Von D Star Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick in OG Lolita – swatched

OG Lolita is described as a chestnut-rose shade and I’d say that’s the perfect description for the shade. It’s opaque in one swatch, but I did find the application was a little bit stiff as the bullet is quite firm.

On the lips it does feel pillow-y and soft, but also kind of thick to a certain degree. The colour is gorgeous though and it was very easy to apply. It wore well for six hours without needing to be touched up.

Final Thoughts

Although I can’t truly find much to fault with this lipstick, I just never really fell in love with it! I can only attribute that to the fact that it felt rather thick upon application which just made me feel a little bit uncomfortable with the lipstick. That being said… the shade is beautiful. The pigmentation was excellent and it did wear for a really long time. I even found that the thickness of the product died down after about two hours, which is really good… but for whatever reason… I’m just not in love with this formula. I know I won’t be reaching for this lipstick after I’m done reviewing it, so I guess you could say this one just wasn’t for me.

That being said… if my descriptions of the product are something you’re interested in, I would definitely go check out the product in stores at Sephora!

The Kat Von D Star Studded Kiss Crème Lipsticks are available in a wide array of shades at sephora.ca for $23 CAD each or on sephora.com for $19 USD each.

One of my purchases at IMATS LA was this is beautiful Violet Voss Hashtag palette – the colour combination is absolutely incredible!

Violet Voss Hashtag

Although the shade names are certainly based off of popular hashtags (as you would expect with the palette name!), I definitely get a lot more of a sunset vibe off of the shades.

Violet Voss Hashtag

Violet Voss is now also being conveniently sold at Sephora, so you needn’t rely on picking them up at IMATS or buying direct through their web site (which could cause customs charges for Canadians).

I’ll have a full review and five looks coming to my YouTube channel in several weeks, but in the meantime, please enjoy the swatches!

Violet Voss Hashtag Swatches Violet Voss – Fresh Violet Voss – Sauce Violet Voss – Savage Violet Voss – G.O.A.T. Violet Voss – ILY Violet Voss – Truth Violet Voss – Lady Boss Violet Voss – No Filter Violet Voss – Throwback Violet Voss – Lit Violet Voss – Vacay Violet Voss – Goals Violet Voss – FOMO Violet Voss – Low-Key Violet Voss – Living Violet Voss – Sunset Violet Voss – Relevant Violet Voss – TBT Violet Voss – Petty AF Violet Voss – Life

The Violet Voss Hashtag palette can be purchased on sephora.ca for $60 CAD and on sephora.com for $45 USD.

There is a absolutely beautiful provincial park north of Toronto that I have been meaning to talk to you guys about – it’s called Arrowhead Provincial Park and they have one of the most unique things: a 1.2 kilometer long skating trail that wraps through the forest!

Arrowhead Provincial Park Skating Trail

David and I went up there several moons ago, and I’d completely forgotten about the photos I had taken until I was cleaning up my harddrive recently and came across them. This place is too wonderful to not share though, so I’m getting this post up now, even though the photos are two years old!

Arrowhead Provincial Park is about a two and a half hour drive north from where we live in downtown Toronto. It’s definitely not the shortest drive out there, but if you live in Toronto you know you essentially have to drive an hour just to get outside of the core!

Arrowhead Provincial Park Skating Trail

The entrance area to the skating trail is set up well – there was a ton of parking, and we didn’t struggle to find a spot which is rather amazing given that we went on a weekend. They’re also set up with heated bathrooms, so that you can get changed if you’re in need of warmer gear. The entrance to the ice trail is really well laid out – there are benches to sit on and cubby holes to store your shoes while you’re off gallivanting. Once you’ve got your gear on, there’s a stretch of ice that leads you straight out to the wraparound skating trail through the woods!

Arrowhead Provincial Park Skating Trail

The path is 1.2 kilometers long when we went (not sure if it’s been extended now) and it was a beautiful mix of short stretches of straight skating alongside curves twisting around trees scattered through the woods. David pointed out that it likely follows a driving trail with campsites on either side – which absolutely makes sense!

Out on the trail!

We spent about an hour skating around the beautiful trail. The experience of it was unlike anything I’d experienced before – I’m so used to skating round and round a rink that this felt absolutely exhilarating!

If you’re considering heading to Arrowhead Provincial Park for skating, be sure to keep up with them on their Twitter feed (@ArroPark) – they’re excellent at posting updates on how the trail is doing because occasionally it’s closed due to weather conditions. While the park has day skating, they also have Fire & Ice night where they set up to torches along the trail. We’ll definitely need to go back there for one those of nights at some point. They also have cross country ski trails and snowshoeing paths if that’s more up your alley.

Some of you may have seen that I uploaded a short video of me figure skating this past weekend at a local rink on Ryersons’s campus. In case you missed it… here you go!

The item that I was the MOST excited to get my hands on at IMATS LA was this beauty: the Pinky Rose Bright Lights palette!

Pinky Rose Bright Lights

It’s been a long time since I’ve been this excited about a palette. So much of the palettes over the last year have been constant rehashes and I’m just bit tired of it.  I don’t need yet another warm, neutral palette, you know? What I *do* need is something that’ll make me excited about colour, and the Pinky Rose Bright Lights palette does exactly that! (And it only retails for $24.99 USD!)

Pinky Rose Bright Lights Swatches Pinky Rose – Smash Pinky Rose – Cupcake Pinky Rose – Punky Pinky Rose – Brûlée Pinky Rose – Pop Rocks Pinky Rose – Dreamsicle Pinky Rose – Boom Pinky Rose – Dazzle Pinky Rose – Glitz Pinky Rose – Cloud Pinky Rose – Lit Pinky Rose – Tiki Pinky Rose – Becky Pinky Rose – Tickle
