“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.”
Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing wonderful, personally I am so excited right now, I have been wondering for a while now which would be my very first article for this blog, and I have finally decided that it would be about one of my favorite beauty products, the everlasting liquid lipstick by Kat Von D. I have been so obsessed with this product the for past few weeks that I just knew I had to write about it and share my love for this amazing lipstick with all of you.
“THE life-proof lipstick that will not wear off! Yes, you can eat, drink, make up, break up and mouth-off knowing your lips are gonna stay flawless through it all!
In 28 to-die-for shades, this creamy formula glides over lips like a gloss and sets to a true matte finish. Along with 24-hour wear and high-pigment color, the next-generation formula is packed with natural moisturizers, including Vitamin E and Sunflower Seed Wax. All-day wear has never felt so comfortable!
Live happily Everlasting!”
This is the description of the everlasting liquid lipstick I found on the Kat Von D beauty website, as you can see this describes the perfect lipstick every beauty junkie is looking for, included myself, so… is it to good to be true?
I have known about this product since its launching but I had never really been drawn to it, until I saw Shaaanxo´s swatch and review video of it and I became obsessed, the shades, the finish, I just loved it all, so I ran to my local Sephora store and got my very first Everlasting liquid lipstick. I went back home, I opened the packaging, which by the way is so amazing and beautiful, tried it, and fell in love. Actually I loved it so much I bought two more shades almost immediately, and the only reason I did not end up buying more is because a lot of the shades are not available here in Palma.
Let´s start talking about he packaging, i personally think they did an amazing job when creating it, I love it´s shape, it is long and thin which makes the application very comfortable and the black and silver detailing is just beautiful, overall it looks very sleek, very professional, not cheap at all, and user friendly.
passing onto the actual product, I am in love with it, it is a beautiful lipstick, incredibly pigmented with a really thin texture which helps with the application. I am kind of useless when applying liquid lipsticks, I usually find it very hard to get an even and non streaky application and I have never had this problem with this lipstick, it applies like a dream and dries very quickly to a matt finish, and the best of all, it is not sticky at all, zero, nada.
Talking about the finish, you should take in consideration that because it is matt and dry it is not the most forgiving lipstick in the world, so I would recommend a good lip scrub before applying it, I do not suffer of dry or chapped lips so it is not a big turn down for me, but it does tend to grab onto dry patches, and even tho the company says it is packed with moisturizers it can be a bit drying, so if you have dry lips I recommend using a balm after taking it off and scrubbing before applying it.
Now lets talk about the lasting power of this little baby, I have to confess that this is the only aspect of this product that did not live up to my expectations, at least on me, it is far from having a 24-hour wear, it is true that it is water-proof, talking-proof and of course kissing-proof ( actually this is the only lipstick wis which my boyfriend will kiss me), but I totally disagree about the eating-proof part of it, it does stay on if you eat some bread or maybe a cracker, but it will not resist a full meal actually it does not even resist a chocolate bar. The good thing about this lipstick it that it is very easy to touch up, which I have to do every time I eat something, so you can easily correct any fading, but yeah, the 24 hours perfect wear is still only a dream in my case.
- Texture: It is really thin, easy to apply and leaves you with a streak free application.
- Finish: Matt and non sticky.
- Pigmentation: This product is soooo pigmented, a little bit goes a very long way and you will not need more than one layer.
- Fragrance: One thing I am thankful for is that there isn´t any annoying or disturbing fragrance, I am really sensible to smells and this is a big plus for me.
- 100% cruelty free: This is such a huge plus for me, I think animal testing is so disgusting and it is something we should really work on and make disappear, their suffering is just as important as ours an we should protect them instead of torturing them.
- Long lasting: Even if it does not last as long as advertised it does last a lot longer than many others and it is indeed, water resistant and kiss-proof.
- Drying: The formula is a bit drying and not really forgiving on dry patches.
- Not eating-proof: It does go away very easily when eating, I have to touch up after every snack or meal.
- Price: At 19’90 euros and 20 dollars it is far from being the cheapest liquid lipstick on the market and it is indeed a bit pricy.
In conclusion this is an amazing lipstick I would recommend to everyone, no, it is not as perfect as advertised but it is still a damn good lipstick with a huge range of shades and which applies like a dream. It is a bit pricy but if it is on your budget I would definitely tell you to go for it, otherwise there are some other very good and very similar liquid lipsticks for a more affordable price on the market, like the sleek one on which I will do a review very soon.
