Kat-Von-D-Everlasting-Liquid-Lipstick

I‘m a huge fan of Matte Lipstick. I’m an even bigger fan of Liquid Lipstick. Put the two together and yeah, it’s pretty much my dream come true. Now I have been eyeing the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick for a while now, but I’ve avoided purchasing them due to my huge disappointment with the Studded Kiss Lipstick formula. A couple of weeks ago when I was roaming around my local Sephora, I decided to swatch a couple of these just to see what they were all about. Well, let’s just say that it was a huge, huge mistake for me to wait so long to pick up a few of these. They are, in short, ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!

So why are they so amazing? Step into my parlour said the spider to the fly…!

Bottom Line: Well worth the price for stay all day matte lip colour. And if Bahau5 and L.U.V. are not the shades for you, have no fear, there are plenty of other shades to choose from!

Pigmentation: Like most Liquid Lipsticks, the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick range doesn’t disappoint on the pigmentation front. The colours are insanely pigmented and what you see in the tube, is the exact colour that applies. If you are looking for a sheer wash of colour, then these are not for you.

Texture: Like other Liquid Lipsticks, this one goes on wet and dries matte. What is different, is that when you put it on, it is not super wet like the Lime Crime versions for example. As a result, when it dries, it doesn’t feel like it is drying into a hard crust of a shell on your lips. Once it’s on and it dries completely, which takes about 5 seconds, you don’t even notice it. Trust me, I fell asleep with it on while I was testing it and woke throughout the night none the wiser. I most certainly did not have that ‘ugh, I forgot to take off my lipstick feeling’.

Longevity: Let me say that the certainly did name these right. They really are everlasting. I did mention that I fell asleep while testing these. And I’m not talking about a nap or anything. I mean full on, out cold, down for the count 10 hours of sleep. I woke up the next morning with perfect lipstick. In fact, I kind of shocked myself when I looked in the mirror and saw that I still had the lipstick on. I forgot that it was there. But in any case, it was just as perfect as when I put it on. No amount of nighttime drooling, or middle of the night glasses of water spilled all over my face made a lick of difference to this stuff. There was no transfer with the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick at all. I sleep on while pillow cases, and there was nary a lipstick mark on them at all in the morning. I even had to use make up remover to get it off when it was all said and done. The bottom line with this stuff is that it stays on, until you take it off!

Ease of use: You know me, when it comes to my makeup I like things to be easy. So I don’t really need to have my products be difficult or require a college degree and a manual in order to use them. The Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick lives up to that simplicity. It is basically a long skinny tube of lip product with a doe foot applicator. And really, that is all I need. The doe foot applicator ensures that I am not needing to overload my brush with product in order to get good coverage. With this stuff, less is more and a little really does go a long way. I only had to dip the applicator in the product once for each lip, and I really didn’t even need to do that.

The Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks retail for $24 and currently come in 12 different shades.  You can pick them up online or in-store from Sephora.

      I love these. They are so much better than the revamped Lipsticks that they did. I have to resist buying them all!
