Kat Von D Sexer is one of my absolute favorite pinks! It is a super bright, saturated fuchsia color with strong blue undertones and a slight metallic sheen. If you look closely enough, you will see a very fine, barely there blue shimmer all over this lipstick. Once on your lips, it will not look shimmery at all. Instead, it will have this semi-matte blue-toned bright, almost neon fuchsia look that is great for a statement lip or to complement an outfit. It is one of those screaming, bold colors that speaks for itself.
When launched her studded kiss lipstick collection, Kat Von D came up with interesting and unique, yet wearable colors. Sexer is one of them. While there are a ton of bright pink lipsticks on the market, none of them is quite like Sexer. It is the blue metallic sheen that makes it stand out in the crowd. For that reason, there are really no good dupes for this shade, but I still found one (see below).
It is easy to apply, even though sometimes you may experience some pulling and tagging on the lips, which is easy to prevent with a good lip primer. I found that it stays for 10+hours, even if you are eating or drinking, which makes it a perfect night out color. The one that you can just throw on and forget about for the night, because even by the end of it, it will still look good and stay put. However, maybe that explains why it is so drying. By the end of the day, I usually end up with my lips all dried up and chapped and it is not good. It smells divine, like a vanilla bean chocolate, so good, that I want to eat it! It leaves a good, even stain on the lips, even if it is completely gone, which is nice.
Overall, despite the fact of how super drying it is, I still love this shade and this lipstick and will definitely repurchase.
