Swatches | KAT VON D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Project Chimps — Available Now!

Shop now at Kat Von D Beauty!

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Project Chimps (0.22 oz.) retails for $20 USD and is described as a "warm brick red." The shade has returned and is available for a limited time exclusively at Kat Von D Beauty!

The shade first released back in August of last year and was created as a charity shade to raise money for Project Chimps—an organization that helps retire biomedical research chimps to a life of freedom—20% of the retail price originally went towards benefiting the cause and has been stated on the official Kat Von D Beauty Instagram that they will continue to donate proceeds towards the non-profit.

As usual on this blog, if you're interested in seeing how it compares to other shades from the brand, here are some comparison swatches—hopefully they're helpful to you! 🙂

Swatches | BITE Beauty Nearly Neon Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Nearly Neon Purple

Shop now at Sephora & Sephora Canada!

Bite Beauty Nearly Neon Lipsticks (0.15 oz.) individually retail for $26 USD ($30 CAD) and are available in six, limited edition electric shades in the brand's signature Amuse Bouche Lipstick formula. 

I found the performance to be pretty darn consistent with the other Amuse Bouche lipsticks I've tried from the brand—it had buildable pigmentation, was creamy, comfortable and felt lightly hydrating. Nearly Neon Purple is currently the only shade from the collection that I own, so I thought it wouldn't hurt to share some comparison / dupe swatches! 🙂

Kat Von D Coven ($21 USD, 0.10 oz.) is a lavender. [P] — review
Urban Decay Twitch ($17 USD, 0.11 oz.) is a soft purple w/ blue undertones. [P]
NYX Playdate ($6 USD, 0.09 oz.) is a bright lavender. [P] — review
CoverGirl Cosmo Kitty ($9 USD, 0.12 oz.) is a lavender. [P]
Bite Beauty Nearly Neon Purple ($26 USD, 0.15 oz.) is a electric purple. [LE]
Bite Beauty Lavender Jam ($26 USD, 0.15 oz.) is a electric blue-violet. [LE] — review
MAC 4EVA ($17 USD, 0.10 oz.) is a creamy light purple. [P]
MAC Galaxy Grey ($21 USD, 0.12 oz.) is a light blueish grey. [P]
Kat Von D Ayesha ($20 USD, 0.22 oz.) is a rich lavender. [P] — review
