The following is a press release from Kat von D Beauty:
Kat Von D’s iconic Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick is back to rock your lips with a covetable new formula, explosive new shade range, and reimagined new look! When Kat set out to create the perfect lipstick – romantic yet edgy, classy yet sexy in unbelievable colors – she created the iconic Studded Kiss. Today, Studded Kiss Lipstick is more badass than ever with a higher pigment formula that delivers luxuriously rich texture and intensified color payoff with Kat’s signature long wear and commitment to cruelty-free makeup that’s completely vegan.
The new Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick launches with 40 incredible colors in three rad finishes: Satin Matte, Glimmer, and Metallic. Kat’s largest, most disruptive shade range ever includes timeless best-sellers, resurrected fan-favorites, beloved icons from her Everlasting Liquid Lipstick collection, and the all-new White Out, an artistry-inspired opaque white to use as a base or to mix and customize your own perfect lip shades. From nudes to brights to bold pops of color, Studded Kiss offers a full spectrum for any one.
As always, Kat personally tested and approved the formulation of each 100% Vegan, cruelty-free shade to ensure consistent pigmentation, and comfortable, virtually weightless wear. Kat was even involved in designing the iconic Studded Kiss Lipstick packaging and lettering. The Studded Kiss lipstick bullet case was inspired by the black studs on her favorite cuff bracelet.

Kat Von D Beauty Artistry Collective Artist Tara Buenrostro (@juscallmetara) shares her passion for the new Studded Kiss Lipsticks:
- “The newly reformulated Studded Kiss Creme Lipsticks are truly unlike any lipsticks out there. They are the longest-lasting lipsticks with the most insane color payoff. From the perfect nudes for any skin tone, classic reds, all the way to those weirdo-pops and Everlasting Liquid Lipstick shade faves – we have any color your heart desires!”
Tara dishes on creating the look seen on Kat Von D in the Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick campaign, which inspired the “Kiss Me All Over” tagline:
- “I always love collaborating with Kat on ideas for campaigns, so when she approached me with the idea of lipsticks all over her face, my first thought was that I was going to have to kiss her… A LOT. In order to accomplish the campaign look, I created custom stencils and with the help of the three other Artistry Collective members we filled them in with different shades of Studded Kiss to truly showcase the amazing color range, intense pigmentation and color payoff to give Kat the perfect, Studded Kiss Me All Over look.”
