Kat Von D's Lipstick Names Inspirations???

Sorry if this doesn't exactly fit in this group but I tried searching all over and I am hoping someone could help out or provide some sources. I love Kat Von D's lipsticks (both liquid and studded) and their names, but I was wondering if there was somewhere out there that listed each name's inspiration.

KvD's explanation for Underage Red: https://jezebel.com/kat-von-d-to-critics-of-underage-red-lipstick-its-femi-1692602453

 

from her Facebook message:

 

I clearly remember wearing a variation of this shade when I was 16 years old. I also remember the feeling of wanting so badly to go see a specific concert at this age, and not being able to get in to the venue because I was underage. Back then, I was already deeply in love with punk rock music, and although in the eyes of many (including my parents), it may have been inappropriate for me to be wearing lipstick. But i did.

 

"Underage Red" is not a girly, pink shade. It is not a sophisticated, deep red either. It is an unapologetic, bold red. To me, "Underage Red" is feminine rebellion.

 

edited to add: ok, I found a list from her facebook: https://www.facebook.com/notes/kat-von-d/the-name-game/10150190769721162

 

HELLBENT- overtime I think of "hellbent" I think of Judas Priest, Hellbent for Leather!

ADORA - Latin translation: Beloved One.

LOVECRAFT - one of Lemmy's favorite authors. (and mine too)

LOLITA - initially inspired by the Lolita fashion style in Japan, but later dedicated to Denise Richard's daughter, Lola.

HOMEGIRL - I did a tattoo of the word, "Homegirl" on one of my oldest friends, Naheed. This color reminds me of her beauty.

MISFIT - My first tattoo was the logo for The Misfits when I was 14 years old.

RITUAL - Me being obsessive Compulsive by nature, Ritual seemed like a good name.

A GO-GO - Inspired by The Cramps.

AGATHA - the woman who makes all my leather pants and jackets, Agatha Blois.

CATHEDRAL - after visiting Prague, this name was absolutely necessary.

CORAL CASTLE - if you've never read about this castle, do yourself a favor and google it! you'll be AMAZED at this unsolved mystery!

 

I'm pleasantly surprised about the Lolita one. here are the liquid lip inspirations: https://www.allure.com/story/kat-von-d-everlasting-liquid-lipstick-inspiration

lol, don't tell me that's a new lipstick name! google tells me expellation is slang for a certain kind of flatulence.
