Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick now comes in 28 shades and 16 new shades are available now!
The new shades just launched a few days ago and I knew it would be hard to narrow down the ones I wanted to buy. I *kind of* managed to control myself and chose just 7 of them. I still sort of wish I had chosen one of the red shades, but I have SO many red lipsticks already it’s hard for me to justify buying any more.
So yeah, liquid lipstick is definitely the new thing. Seems like every single company is coming out with a version. Basically it applies wet and glossy and dries into a matte lipstick finish. These dry pretty quickly but I have swatches of what they look like wet and dry below. They contain vitamin E and sunflower seed oil, which is supposed to help with hydration but honestly, these feel pretty darn dry on my already parched lips. It helps to use a primer or lip balm underneath them but they really aren’t very hydrating at ALL, and anyone who tells you different either has super moisturized lips or is lying (in my opinion).
The applicator is a small, soft angled sponge and works nicely. The one thing I don’t love is that the wand is rather long so controlling it isn’t as easy as a normal length wand. But it’s not really that hard – it’s makeup, not rocket science. 😉
So here you can see the shades as they come out wet and glossy.
Requiem is a light lilac/pink.
Melancholia is a rose pink.
Jeffree is a hot pink/coral.
Ayesha is a medium lavender.
Susperia is a bright lavender.
L.U.V. is a bright violet.
Echo is a deep navy blue.
Here you can see just about 30-45 seconds later they have dried completely matte.
As you can see, some of the more pale shades settled into my lip lines just a bit more than the others, but nothing bad when you aren’t super close-up. They dry rather quickly which is good I suppose. But as mentioned above, when they dried they started immediately feeling tight and dry on my lips. But because I really like them I’ll still wear them but probably with a balm either under or over them. A couple of them (mainly Ayesha and Echo) needed to be gone over a few times to get them even. The shades I really like the best on me are Jeffree, Ayesha, L.U.V. and Susperia. Echo is a million kinds of amazing but I don’t wear shades like that much anymore unless I am going out at night (which never happens anymore).
You can find these only at Sephora and they are $20.00 each.
Are you going to be picking any of these up? Which are your favorites?
