I've been meaning to try Kat Von D's makeup items for a while now and when I hear that AliExpress stocked dupes of them for only £1.12 I had to get some to try them out! I believe the original price of them is £16 in the UK and $20 in the US, which is quite a high price tag so I thought I'd give the dupes a go first!

I chose the shades Lolita, Lolita 2, Bow n Arrow, and Vampira. I didn't expect much for a quid, but oh gosh was I pleasantly surprised when I got my parcel!! The packaging was amazing, it looked very high quality and I was so excited to finally open up the lipsticks!

The scent is incredible! They are vanilla scented, which actually reminded me of the Poundland liquid lipsticks so I believe that the ingredients are very similar, therefore cannot be harmful to your skin. I know that a lot of people get funny about buying fake products, however not everyone can afford to splurge £16 on a lipstick! Especially when you can get practically the same thing for a fraction of the price.

The opacity is great. I only swatched each lipstick once on the back of my hand and the colour pay-off was amazing. It was actually really hard to rub off!
The longevity is also pretty great, I find that it does come off slightly after meals however, you can always touch it up and ta-dah! Still looks great. I believe that the colours are also very similar to the real thing, however I've got nothing to compare the fakes to, but I really do like them a lot.

P.S. - I'm not trying to promote fake makeup, however, this lipstick has worked for me well - all of them have, and I'm pretty happy with my purchase. If you want to buy them, you can find them on the website. However, it is 100% up to you if you want to purchase these products and I would recommend messaging the seller and asking for the ingredients list before purchasing the products!

Have you tried any of the Kat Von D products? Do they look similar to the AliExpress dupes? Have you tried the AliExpress dupes at all?

Lots of love,

  1. Wow amazing, i didn't realise they had dupes for this cheap with similar ingredients! I agree, £16.00 is wayyyy to much to try a lip product you may not even like the colour of!
