Sephora has exclusive lip products from both Kat Von D and Sephora + Pantone Universe for this fall season. And the glittery, metallic shades are all you need for holiday lips.

Do you have a go-to holiday lip look? I know, it’s not even Halloween yet. You can’t even begin to think about what you’re going to serve for Thanksgiving, let alone what you’ll wear to the dinner. Or your outfit for Christmas or New Year’s Eve, for that matter. It’s just too much thinking ahead! Too much!
But because I’m a sucker for metallic and glittery lips, I had to test out Kat Von D’s new Foiled Love Liquid Lipstick, recently launched at Sephora, and Sephora + Pantone Universe’s Lip Luster Lipstick, also available since this summer. They’re both packed with shimmer—which I consider synonymous with holiday cosmetics—and so I wanted to test out how they both fared. Would they survive third helpings of string bean casserole? Two pieces of cheesecake? A few glasses of Champagne on New Year’s Eve? (Also, sorry for just sharing with you my ideal diet.)
And, well, I was pleasantly surprised! Each product is great in its own way: Foiled Love Liquid Lipstick is absurdly pigmented and dries super-fast, setting for hours, while Lip Luster is ridiculously glittery and shiny (so much so that it was nearly impossible to take swatch pictures of). Both are worth checking out—read on for swatches and my reviews!
