What happened to Kat Von D’s Glimmer Veil?

I have long touted my love of Kat Von D’s Glimmer Veil, but when I went to pick up a replacement of my favourite shade… it had disappeared… so had my second favourite and those left behind were on sale!!! But why would they discontinue such an amazing product?

Then I saw a name change on Sephora’s website, no longer was it Kat Von D, but KVD Vegan Beauty. Was the Glimmer Veil vegan? I asked myself. I was pretty sure it was, so surely that wasn’t why is was disappearing. Then of course I consulted the illustrious Google with phrases like “has Kat Von D’s Glimmer Veil been discontinued”, but alas there were no answers.

So fast forward to today, after extensive online and instore searches for glittery lipsticks and I have found a couple. But they seem far more prone to smudging and don’t last nearly as long. And I am left wondering, where did my precious Glimmer Veil go?

Clothing

Ideally pick a character you are channeling first. I chose a witch and wore a cobweb inspired top and black skirt to channel a little inner witch.

Jewelry

It’s Halloween, so naturally I pulled out the gothic choker. There are also plenty of novelty Halloween earrings, bracelets and rings that can instantly change the mood of an outfit.

Shoes

With a witch inspired outfit, pointy shoes were essential.

Hope you feel inspired and Happy Halloween

Kat Von D Glimmer Veil Review

I love a good lipstick. But I did not love liquid lipstick until I came across Kat Von D’s Glimmer Veil at Sephora.

televatorIt comes in pretty gothic packaging and the tube reflects the product inside. The wand has a tapered end for easy application. And it can be used as a shimmering top coat or as a full impact lipstick.

I have it in the shade Televator at the moment. But I’m sure my collection will grow. It sparkles, it stays in place, it’s long wearing and just plain gorgeous. Every time I wear my Glimmer Veil lipstick I get at least one compliment on it.

I tried NYX’s Cosmic Metal Lip Cream as a cheaper dupe. The color was similar and it looked similar. But it was tacky, didn’t dry and while long wearing in a way, half of it was caught on what you were eating and drinking.

So while more expensive, Glimmer Veil is the answer for me. Plus it’s cruelty and paraben free.
