KAT VON D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks | New Shades!


Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks (0.12 oz.) individually retail for $20 USD ($24 CAD) and are available 28 shades. The brand recently introduced 16 new, permanent shades into the line. They are said to be "a long-wear, full-coverage liquid lipstick with a smooth, matte finish."

"Now with 16 additional, bold shades of Everlasting Liquid Lipstick for all-night wear, this innovative formula gives lips long-lasting wear and high-pigment color. Its creamy, color-rich formula glides over lips like a gloss but dries to a true matte finish. It’s infused with natural comfort-enhancing ingredients, including vitamin E and sunflower seed so you can flaunt lasting matte color that leaves lips feeling comfortable."
The packaging is a long, thin plastic tube with a velvet, doe-foot applicator. Depending on the size of your lips, I feel the applicator holds the perfect amount of product in one go to cover your entire mouth evenly and easily. It does a great job of applying color cleanly, but for those looking for total control and precision, you could definitely use a lip brush. The lipsticks also don't have a noticeable scent or taste.


The formula is highly pigmented and dries within 20 - 40 seconds of application. During dry time you will want to avoid applying more product or pressing your lips together as this will likely cause the color to lift in areas and appear streaky, patchy or uneven. With most liquid lipsticks, the color does cling to lips but never feels overly drying or uncomfortable. They typically wear between 6 to 10 hours on their own, but layering products, like glosses, can cause the wear time to be cut down drastically.



Ayesha is a medium, purple mauve with cool undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, mostly even and for the most part, opaque. It had good pigmentation but I noticed my natural lip color did show through in some areas, especially once the product slowly started to fade over time. Regardless, it was never streaky or patchy. wore well for +7 hours before fading. (5/5)
* MAC Men Love Mystery was lighter, brighter, warmer and more pink. 

Bow N Arrow is a medium, muted brown beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly, fully opaque and had rich, opaque pigmentation. It had excellent performance throughout wear; it wasn't streaky or patchy once dry and it didn't crack or flake over time. Bow N Arrow wore well for +7.5 hours before fading. (5/5) 
* Kat Von D Lolita was warmer, more pink.  MAC Stone was darker, cooler, more grey.  MAC Velvet Teddy was lighter, warmer, more peach.  MAC Whirl was darker, warmer, more brown.

Damned is a deep, darkened burgundy with cool undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, semi-even and mostly opaque. It was definitely a trickier shade to apply due to it's darker nature, as it appeared darker in some areas, lighter in others—even with properly prepped, moisturized lips. Damned wore well for +7.5 hours and left behind a stain. (4/5)
* Kat Von D Homegirl is brighter, less opaque.  Kat Von D Motorhead is brighter, more red, less opaque.  Kat Von D Exorcism is lighter, cooler, more plum.  MAC Studded Kiss is brighter, warmer.  MAC Antique Velvet is lighter, more brown.  MAC Sin is brighter, warmer, more red.

Double Dare is a medium, dusty coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and had opaque color payoff. This was another shade that had excellent performance throughout wear; it wasn't streaky or patchy and it didn't crack or flake once dry. Double Dare wore well for +7.5 hours before fading. (5/5)
* Kat Von D Lolita was muted, more brown.

Echo is a darkened, royal blue with hints of purple, cool undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, mostly even and opaque. It was a slightly more difficult shade to apply, as it tends to be lighter and more sheer in certain areas. I found the quicker you applied this shade, the more opaque the coverage was—you can always go back and fix anywhere needed once it's dried. Echo wore well for +7.5 hours before fading. (4/5) 
MAC Matte Royal was brighter, creamier and leaned more purple.

Exorcism is a medium-dark, red plum with cool undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, mostly even and opaque. While it had nice pigmentation, it did appear lightly darker in some areas, but it wasn't as noticeable or nearly as troublesome as Damned. This shade was actually quite easy to work with. Exorcism wore well for +7.5 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)
* Kat Von D Damned is darker, more red.  Kat Von D Homegirl was brighter, warmer, more red.  MAC Instigator is cooler, more purple.

Lovesick is a medium, dusty rose pink with cool undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and had nice, opaque coverage. It had good pigmentation and the color was never streaky or patchy. I also didn't experience any flaking or cracking during wear. Lovesick lasted +7 hours before fading. (5/5)

Melancholia is a light-medium, pale bubblegum pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, mostly even and had opaque color payoff. While it was never streaky or patchy, my natural lip pigmentation did show through ever-so-slightly in some areas due to the more pale nature. Melancholia lasted +6.5 hours and lightly cracked throughout wear. (4/5)

Mother is a medium, watermelon pink with cool undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and had ultra rich, opaque pigmentation. The color coverage and performance was great. Again, it wasn't streaky or patchy once dry and it didn't crack or flake over time. Mother wore well for +8 hours before fading. (5/5)

 
Noble is a light, pale peach with warm undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, mostly even and semi-opaque. It seemed to have a thinner consistency and sheerer pigmentation which caused my lip color to show through in some areas. This could be easily corrected by applying a second coat once the product had dried fully for a more opaque coverage. This was also a more troublesome shade to apply due to it's lighter nature. Noble wore well for +6 hours before lightly fading. (4/5) 
Kat Von D Nobel (Lipstick) was more muted, pinker.

Nosferatu is a medium-dark, crimson with warm undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and had opaque color payoff. Once again, it wasn't streaky or patchy and it didn't crack over time. My only complaint is it can look darker in some areas in certain lightings, but it wasn't. Nosferatu wore well for +8 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)
* Kat Von D Outlaw is brighter, more vivid.  MAC Studded Kiss is darker, warmer.  Bite Braised Maple is brighter, lighter.  Bite Mulled Maple is warmer, glossy.  Bite Black Cherry is warmer, glossy.

Requiem is a muted, pale lavender pink with cool undertones and an ultra matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and had ultra opaque pigmentation. Despite it's lighter, more pale nature, this lipstick was surprisingly easy to apply . Although it could end up looking streaky at times if you don't smooth the product out fast enough, or try and apply more before the first layer has dried completely. Requiem wore well for +7 hours before fading. (4/5)
* Kat Von D Coven is cooler, more purple. 

Susperia is a medium-dark, purple fuchsia with warm undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and semi-opaque. There were a few areas that seemed lighter but that never caused my lips to look patchy, streaky or uneven. It was richly pigmented and I appreciate that it's one solid color on the lips and doesn't separate like LUV—which tends to look more fuchsia around the edges. Susperia lasted +7.5 hours and left behind a stain. (5/5)
* Kat Von D LUV (Liquid) is brighter, more vivid, pink.  Kat Von D LUV (Lipstick) is cooler, more purple, less pigmented.  MAC Heroine is brighter, more vivid, pink.

Witches is a dark, true black with cool undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied smoothly, evenly and had rich, opaque pigmentation. This shade was surprisingly easy; I found the quicker you spread the product across your lips, the more opaque and even the coverage was. For any sheerer areas, you can always go back and touch up once it's dried. Witches wore well for +8 hours and left behind a faint stain. (5/5)
 * MAC Hautecore was similar, less pigmented.  Kat Von D Slayer was similar, less pigmented.

Overall, the additional shades were such a nice, long awaited surprise and I hope to see some more unique shades and finishes—like metallic! I am a huge fan of the Kat Von D formula and these are by far my favorite, go-to liquid lipsticks out there. Of course with that said, I highly recommend checking them out and if you have, let me know your favorites in the comments!
