Hey there my fellow lipstick junkies!
I’m back again with another beauty blog. If any of you have been following me on here for awhile , you should know that I am a lover of all things lipstick, especially matte liquid lipsticks. Kat Von D has added 6 new nude shades to her Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Collection. The shades include:
- Muneca: Vibrant pinkish-apricot
- Ophelia: Peach nude
- Ludwig: Tawny rose
- Sanctuary : Cool sepia
- Hawkwind: Warm nutmeg
- Crucifix: Hickory brown
While they are all beautiful shades, I drew an affinity to three shades in particular: Sanctuary, Hawkwind and Crucifix. I was only able to get my hands on Sanctuary and Crucifix. Here is my honest opinion on both shades.
Crucifix: Crucifix is the perfect chocolate brown matte lipstick I had ben looking for the winter season. When lined with MAC Cosmetics “Chestnut” lip liner, this lipstick is the perfect earth toned nude for me who is of a darker complexion! One thing I find fault with with Crucifix, is that it is SUPER drying. Like most liquid lipsticks ( as well as the other liquid lipsticks from the Kat Von D brand that I own) your lips should be exfoliated and moisturized before you apply. But even after I did that, I still found that Crucifix was extremely flaky after a short period of time. Nevertheless, its a beautiful colour.
Sanctuary: Sanctuary is described as a cool sepia toned nude. It reminds me somewhat of “Lolita” another nude from the Kat Von D line. Sanctuary leans more towards a nude with a purple undertone( on me anyway) . I love this shade! I think that this shade is probably going to be my go to colour for the remainder of the season! It’s that perfect nude with a just enough wash of colour. I think that Sanctuary would be complimentary on all skin tones. This shade is really long lasting. I wore it through an entire day. I ate, I drank and took a nap and …. my lips stayed perfectly intact. 🙂
These lipsticks retail for $24.00 Canadian online and in stores. Im looking forward to the spring that will see this line release another batch of lipsticks, this time from the more vibrant family of colours!
