Kat Von D Lolita is iconic. How can one rosey terracotta be so universally flattering? And versatile? I’ve worn my Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita out at night, during the day, and to several special occasions. It’s just that good. The only downside? It’s a little pricey, at $20USD. If you’re looking for a budget alternative to the shade, keep reading.
COLOURPOP CRÈME LUX LIPSTICK – LA LADY
Guess what Colourpop’s shade LA Lady is described as on the website? Rosey terracotta. Yep, it’s almost identical to Lolita. While the formula is different, the shade match is totally there. Obviously, the KVD Everlastings are long-wear, matte, and transfer-proof while Colourpop Luxes are creamy, nourishing, and satin-finish. You will get the same high-pigment look with both.
I know there probably are a ton of Lolita dupes out there, but the Colourpop Lux formula is amazing. For $7USD, you really cannot beat the quality. If you’re interested in reading more, I posted a blog with some pictures of the six shades I picked up from both the Crème and Matte Lux lines HERE.
ASIDE FROM FORMULA DIFFERENCES…
Here you can see the shades side by side. Lolita is swatched on the left and LA Lady is on the right.
Lolita is slightly darker, slightly cooler. LA Lady has more of a warm orange-pink tone. If you’re one for more warm lipstick shades and you’ve been eyeing Lolita, LA Lady would be perfect for you! If you just want that gorgeous rosey terracotta without shelling out $20USD (can’t blame you!), LA Lady is a fantastic alternative.
What are your favorite dupes for Lolita? Or, are you a die-hard KVD Lolita kind of person?
