KAT VON D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick


Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick (0.22 oz) retails for $19 USD ($24 CAD) and is available in 12 shades. It is said to be "a long-wear, full-coverage liquid lipstick with a smooth matte finish."

Bachelorette is described as a dark reddish fuchsia.
Backstage Bambi is described as a vivid hot pink. 
Bauhau5 is described as a deep raspberry. 
L.U.V. is described as a rich violet. 
Outlaw is described as a brick red. 
Vampira is described as a deep reddish burgundy. 
 
"This innovative Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is infused with vitamins A, C, and E for added hydration. The next-generation formula gives lips long-lasting wear and high-pigment color with a smooth matte finish."
The packaging is a long, basic plastic tube with a standard doe foot applicator. Depending on the size of your lips one dip is enough to cover your entire mouth. The applicator does a good job of applying but for total control and precision I would recommend using a lip brush.

The formula is highly pigmented and incredibly opaque. The color is rich and applies smoothly, evenly and clings to your lips. The finish is a true, flat, ultra matte with no shine whatsoever. The  formula was neither hydrating nor drying - it feels like bare, naked lips. If the lipstick starts to feel uncomfortable, you can apply a gloss/balm over top of this lipstick, but keep in mind anything too oily or thin can cause the color to move around. Layering products can also cut down on the wear time drastically.

On initial application the lipstick appears glossy but dries down quickly (depending on how much you apply) usually about 20-40 seconds. During the dry time you'll want to avoid pressing your lips together because any areas that aren't fully dry will move/lift the color making it appear patchy and/or uneven. If you need to touch up any areas, it's best to wait until the lipstick is fully dry and reapply a full coat over your entire lip.

These lipsticks wore well for +7 hours before very faintly fading around the center of my lips. They are extremely long-wearing and as long as you're not eating or drinking anything excessively oily/greasy these lipsticks will continue looking newly applied throughout the entire day with no touch-up needed.

Removal is easy once you're ready. Simply press and hold any makeup wipe or cotton pad with an oil-based makeup remover for about 5-15 seconds and wipe, the color will remove easily. Keep in mind, because of the rich pigmentation these lipsticks will leave behind a stain.

Bachelorette is a medium-dark, red coral with cool undertones and an ultra matte finish. This shade was richly pigmented and applied smoothly, evenly and fully opaque in a single coat. Bachelorette wore well for +7 hours before faintly fading towards the center of my bottom lip. (5/5)
Backstage Bambi is a vivid, light-medium fuchsia pink with warm undertones and an ultra matte finish. This shade was richly pigmented and applied smoothly, evenly and fully opaque in a single coat. Backstage Bambi wore well for +8 hours before faintly fading towards the center of my bottom lip. (5/5)
Bauhau5 is a medium-dark raspberry pink with warm undertones and an ultra matte finish. This shade was richly pigmented and applied smoothly. It was mostly even with one coat, but took two coats for a fully opaque coverage. Bauhau5 wore well for +7 hours before faintly fading towards the center of my bottom lip. (5/5)
L.U.V. is a vivid, medium-dark fuchsia purple with cool undertones and an ultra matte finish. This shade was richly pigmented and applied smoothly - however the color did ever-so-slightly feather lightly around the edges so a lip brush would help for precise application. It was mostly even with one coat, but took two coats for a fully opaque coverage. L.U.V. wore well for +7 hours before faintly fading towards the center of my bottom lip. (5/5)
Outlaw is a bright, medium red with neutral-to-cool undertones and an ultra matte finish. This shade was richly pigmented and applied smoothly, evenly and fully opaque in a single coat. Outlaw wore well for +7 hours before faintly fading towards the center of my bottom lip. (5/5)
Vampira is a deep, medium-dark maroon with neutral-to-warm undertones and an ultra matte finish. This shade was richly pigmented and applied smoothly - however the color did ever-so-slightly feather lightly around the edges so using a  lip brush  for precise application would help. It was mostly even with one coat, but took two coats for a fully opaque coverage. Vampira wore well for +7 hours before faintly fading towards the center of my bottom lip. (5/5)

Overall, these liquid lipsticks are truly the most long-lasting, smudge-proof, budge-proof, kiss-proof lipstick formula that I've found. As most of you know, I suffer from horribly dry, chapped lips so the thought of a liquid that dries super matte and "clings" to lips is usually a big no-no! but these lipsticks are fantastic! They're intensely pigmented, apply evenly, smoothly and they last an entire day with minimal to no touch-up! I highly recommend checking these out if a good, long-lasting lipstick is in your books.

* Stay tuned, I'll have an application tips video especially for liquid lipsticks coming soon!
