I decided to write a review of Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick after Wednesday’s post. These lipsticks are opaque and highly pigmented. When first applied, this lipstick feels like a gloss, but it sets to a matte finish. Applying more than one layer of the lipstick achieves a darker color, but it does not feel heavy on the lips.
Liquid lipsticks can be dry. These are not. If your lips tend to dry, it may be helpful to wear a lip balm underneath this lipstick. Upon application, the lipstick is creamy while remaining liquid at the same time. The lipstick dries quick, leaving the lips velvet-smooth.
After about 6 hours of wear, the lipstick tends to feather slightly in the middle. Despite this, the lipstick is still long-lasting! The colour lasts on my lips for 8-10 hours.
Below are swatches of the two shades I purchased from Sephora. I own Backstage Bambi and Bauhau5. The colour Backstage Bambi is a vivid hot pink, while Bauhau5 is a deep raspberry colour. The shades may appear a shade darker, or lighter, on different skin tones. In the first photo, the lipstick is still wet. In the second photo, the lipstick dried to a matte finish.
