Ok guys, you know I’m a lipstick junkie. But I don’t really ever branch out from the world of MAC cosmetics or the occasional drug store lip product. But then.. Oh then, I was introduced to Kat Von D’s liquid lip stains and man where have they been all my life????!!! I am 150,000 percent completely obsessed with this lipstick line!
This line includes 12 shades that range from a light dusty rose shade to a deep reddish-burgundy shade.I started out with buying one shade and ended up returning to purchase 3 more. This will be a quick and honest review on this product line. The Everlasting Lip-stains are described on the Sephora website as such:
.What it is:
A long-wear, full-coverage liquid lipstick with a smooth matte finish.
What it does:
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.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
The first lip stain that I purchased was Lolita. Lolita is described as a dusty rose shade. Basically its your quintessential pinkish nude. If you are trying to achieve the “Kylie Jenner” lip this is a product that can help you do that. This can be worn with or without a lip liner. I wear it with Mac’s chestnut lip liner because I am of a darker complected skin tone, it helps to transition this colour better. I absolutely love this shade. It is a shade I can wear seamlessly in the day or glam it up with a va va voom eye and transition into night.
The next one I purchased ( because I’m a sucker for a purple lip) was L.U.V. This is a rich violet shade very similar to the ever so popular shade by Mac “Heroine”. This needs no liner. Applies seamlessly 🙂
Next, I purchased Bauhau5 ( yes I spelled that correctly and no I have NO IDEA how to pronounce that correctly 😛 ) Described as a deep raspberry shade very similar to MAC’s “Flat Out Fabulous” which is probably one of my favorite lip shades ever! This shade can be worn independently but i like to play around with it and occasionally i pair it with Nightmoth lip liner ( MAC) or Vino or Chestnut lip liners ( also by Mac)
Lastly,i purchased Outlaw a brick-red shade. I was a little conflicted on this shade. It was pretty similar to Ruby Woo but even more drying ( if that is even possible. Anyone who has worn Ruby Woo will find this hard to believe.) It wasn’t my favorite purchase. I then tried it again using a red lip liner all over my lip first before applying it and it was a little bit better.
So let me break down the pros and cons of this product
- super long-lasting ( I mean it takes divine intervention to remove these!)
- extremely pigmented
- compliments all if not most complexions
- very drying formula ( easily rectified with a lip scrub/vaseline primer prior to application. If you don’t moisturize your lips beforehand, it will show every crack and crevice on your lips.
- You need a very steady hand to apply because if you make a mistake, you will have to start all over. It will stain your face too lol
- Really wasn’t a big fan of Outlaw( brick-red shade) didn’t last very long, the only one that feathered and faded.
I like these lipstains much more than the NYX lip creams which have a similar formula. I would definitely recommend this product for anyone to try. I would like to add “Vampira” to my collection but that colour STAYS sold out online in store… le sigh lol :p I do have the shade Vampira in the Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick- same shade different formula. I want the Everlasting Lipstick formula… yeah so that’s that! Two Thumbs up on this product!
