I must admit that lipstick is one of those makeup essential items for me that I just couldn’t live without. I’ve not had the opportunity to try a single Kat Von D product before so I must admit I was a little (a lot) excited when I herd they had recently launched in Debenhams. Of course, I had to head over there asap to have a browse of her makeup collection and I just couldnt leave without purchasing the Everlasting liquid lipstick that’s been raved about by so many. I was tempted by a number of the gorgeous shades on offer but in the end I settled for ‘Bow N Arrow’ and ‘Lolita I’. I immediately couldn’t wait to see for myself why Kat Von D’s oh so famous Everlasting Liquid Lipstick stands high and mighty above so many others in the market at present.
The product is housed in a tall, thin 6.6ml lipstick tube with some beautiful and stylish patterned detail printed around the neck of the tube and on the lid. The wand style applicator is slightly longer in comparison to other liquid lipsticks I have in my collection but this wasn’t an issue for me. I found the product easy to apply, it glided onto my lips with absolute ease and I found it covered well with both shades being highly pigmented. The product didn’t feel drying on my lips, I found it felt ever so velvety and smooth on application and it dried down in no time at all – leaving a stunning, smooth matte finish.
The Everlasting Liquid lipstick by Kat Von D really stood out to me on initial application purely because it felt so moisturising compared with others. In my own experience with liquid lipsticks, I’ve found that there definitely has to be compromises in the formula to really please us avid makeup lovers. I’ve tried some lipsticks that have felt so nourishing on my lips but have never fully dried down properly which doesn’t do much for longevity of the product nor it’s non transferable notion. This actually leads me back to that one embarrassing time that I walked through the city unknowingly with purple smeers of lipstick transfer on my face which I have to say, really wasn’t one of my better moments and I most certainly learned from that experience. I’ve tried others that have completely dried down to a beautiful matte finish that has stayed firmly put throughout my day of eating, drinking etc. but has left my lips feeling very much like a desert which just really isn’t ideal despite the great lasting power.
Kat Von D has got her Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks absolutely spot on, incorporating Vitamin E and Sunflower Seed Wax into the formula so your lips feel just as good as they look. These lipsticks feel so nourishing whilst drying down to a matte finish thats completely none transferable. I’ve found the product to have some incredible lasting power and I can really see why this liquid lipstick holds such an outstanding reputation in such a competative industry.
Bow N Arrow – A fabulous fawn nude shade, perfect for adding a touch of spice to your everyday makeup.
Lolita I – A beautiful, yet striking chesnut rose that will bring your makeup look to life from day through to the evening.
I absolutely adore these liquid lipsticks from Kat Von D’s makeup collection and I think they are certainly a new found favourite. I’m already impatiently waiting to get my hands on more shades and I can’t wait to experiment with even more products from her ever-growing makeup collection.
