One of my favorite beauty products is liquid lipsticks. I love how they last long, come in all different colors, and can be used as eyeliner. But some liquid lipsticks stand above the rest. For me, Kat Von D Beauty, as a brand in general, just put out some of the best makeup products. The Everlasting Liquid Lipstick collection was the first liquid lipstick line that I tried out when I first started getting serious about cosmetics. So here is a review on the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks Part One.
KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks
The Kat Von D Beauty official site says the following about these lipsticks:
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 31 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!
Similar to my last post, I will be going over the ingredients, do some swatches, and then show you how each color looks on my lips. Unfortunately, I do not currently own ever single lipstick in this line, which is why I will make more posts as I add more to my collection.
These are the shades I will be reviewing:
- Bow N’ Arrow
- Underage Red
All of these shades are matte. Sorry to all those who are metallic/glitter/shimmer fans.
According to Kat Von D Beauty’s website, the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks are made with Vitamin E and Sunflower Seed Wax.
They are also vegan and cruelty-free.
Each Everlasting Liquid Lipstick retails for $20 and can be bought off Sephora or Kat Von D Beauty’s official website.
Let’s get on with the swatches!
Noble is obviously the lightest shade in this bundle of Kat Von D Beauty liquid lipsticks. It is described as a “petal pink nude” on Sephora’s website.
Although I can see the pink undertones in this shade, for some reason it looks like more of a yellow, peachy, almost macaroni shade on my skin tone. It also makes me look like I’m wearing concealer on my lips. Therefore, Noble isn’t necessarily my favorite shade. However, I think that this shade would look good on people that have a tanner skin tone. I’m not sure how it would look on very dark skin tones, but I’ve heard that a lot of people of color use darker lip liners when it comes to using colors similar to Noble.
Even though I’m not too fond of the color, I did find that Noble went on very easily, with minimal to no streaks, which is nice since I didn’t have to worry about reapplying the product.
Noble is definitely a color that can be difficult for fair skinned people to pull off.
It’s not a bad color, but I think that this would just look better if I apply it in conjunction with a darker lip liner. Because of its pink undertones, I think that this would be a lovely color to wear in the spring. It can also be a good color to wear if you want a softer, more doll-like appearance.
Bow N’ Arrow
This shade is said to be one of Kat Von D Beauty’s most popular shades, and after trying this out, I can definitely see why.
It is described as a “fawn nude” on Sephora. When swatching it on my skin, Bow N’ Arrow looks like a light warm brown. For some reason, it reminds me of some kind of pudding. But in all seriousness, I think that this color is very versatile, and can accompany any type of makeup look. I think it would also look good as a nude on darker skin tones. In terms of the formula, this shade applies beautifully, with no noticeable streaks, and doesn’t require any reapplication.
I think it’s obvious that I absolutely adore this shade.
One thing that I love about Kat Von D Beauty is how Kat also incorporates the band names, songs, and lyrics into her products.
Mother is described as a “dusty mauve pink,” and while I don’t see how Sephora thinks it’s “dusty,” I do think that this is definitely more of a neutral color on my skin. Like the other shades, Mother applies nicely on my lips with no streakiness. However, there was something that I just didn’t like about this shade when I first used it.
Thankfully, after using this shade a few more times, Mother has definitely grown on me. I think I’m gonna try and wear this more often, because it really is such a beautiful shade.
At first, I didn’t know how the fuck to pronounce this shade, but I’m grateful that Google is a tool I can use for instances such as these. Pronounced as “bow house,” I believe that this shade was named after the artist Ms. Von D dated awhile ago, but don’t quote me on that.
Anyways, Bauhau5 is described as a “deep raspberry” shade, but you know what’s funny? On Sephora’s website, the color looks like more of a red instead of a raspberry inside of the tube. Don’t believe me? Here’s a picture!
This was a big deal to me because when I tried this shade out, I was surprised by how much brighter than I anticipated. It’s also got more of a pinky tone to it than a red raspberry. However, I still think that this is a beautiful color. I can definitely see it as more of a springtime type of shade, because of how bright and bold it is on the lips. So whether you want to go with a soft look with a pop of color, or be colorful and dramatic, I think that Bauhau5 is a shade worth checking out. The formula for this shade also seems pretty nice, since I don’t see any streaks when I apply it. It also feels light on my lips.
In general, I’d recommend Bauhau5 to people who are looking for something different from the pinks and the reds.
I wonder if Kat Von D named this shade after the movie?
If it was, I’m surprised she didn’t make it a bright, vibrant red, since the film is known for being gory and beautiful at the same time. Oh well, we can’t always get what we want.
Anyways! Susperia is described as a “bright lavender,” and I do think that it is a very pretty, bright shade of purple. In fact, it almost looks like a light plum to me. Honestly, purple is one of my favorite colors, which is probably why this is one of my favorite colors. But I really do think that purple is a color that can look good on all skin tones, and Susperia is no different.
What I found especially surprising, however, was how light this shade felt on my lips. I honestly couldn’t even feel this on my lips. Granted, that could’ve been because I exfoliated and moisturized the living hell out of my lips between each swatch, but I noticed it still felt light on my lips even when I didn’t exfoliate or moisturize. I don’t believe I saw any streakiness when putting it on my lips, which is amazing because usually purple liquid lipsticks are hard to create, and therefore usually a little patchy or streaky.
So yep, Susperia is perhaps one of my favorite colors from the lineup. So far, anyways. If you’re looking for something bold, but “wearable,” then I’d definitely check out this shade.
Right now you might be thinking “Rebsy, what the fuck is this? THIS IS THE EXACT SAME COLOR AS THE LAST ONE!” Well, first of all, don’t yell at me, I’m very sensitive and my blood pressure is high enough as it is. Second, they’re actually NOT the same color, and I’m about to show you how they’re different in a second.
This shade is described as a “rich violet,” whereas Susperia was a “bright lavender” color. Huge difference, bro.
But seriously, when comparing the two side-by-side, it’s noticeable how L.U.V. has more of a mauve-y pink undertone to it, whereas Susperia looks more muted. Even without the slight photo lighting enhancement, the richness of the violet is much more noticeable than with Susperia.
L.U.V. is an amazing color to wear in the spring, whereas Susperia could work in any season, even in the winter. However, L.U.V. might be a bit too bright for those of you that are fans of muted colors.
Another thing that’s similar to Susperia is how lightweight L.U.V. feels on the lips. Like Susperia, L.U.V. feels like it’s barely there once it has dried up. It also doesn’t look streaky and doesn’t require much reapplication.
So there. L.U.V. might be similar to Susperia, but THEY’RE NOT THE SAME. It’s a great shade for all the purple fanatics that are looking to add to their collection.
I’m not gonna lie, the name of this shade makes me a little uncomfortable.
This one is supposed to be a “bright crimson.”
I have to say that it does look like a bright neutral, classic red. I can’t help but think of Marilyn Monroe while looking at the swatch.
This color should work well with any skin tone. I realize I’ve said this about many of the shades on here, but this truly does look neutral enough to go well with anyone, no matter what their undertones may be.. Underage Red is also very lightweight, like most of the other shades, and does not appear to be streaky during application.
Personally, though, I don’t think it looks that great on me. Perhaps I’m just used to wearing darker shades, but it just seems too bright and warm for my skin.
But if you’re looking for a classic color, then Underage Red might be for you.
I’m still not sure how to feel about the name, though.
Once again, you might find yourself feeling the way you did when I showed you Susperia and L.U.V. Again, you might be going “seriously, Rebsy, these are the freaking same!” And to be honest, I think I’d have to agree with you.
Unlike Underage Red, Outlaw is supposed to be a “brick red.”
However, I really don’t see much of a difference between the two shades. The only time I see anything different is when I’m in a bright room, and it’s only then that Outlaw looks a tiny bit darker in its container. There isn’t much of a difference to be found other than that.
Again, I think this would look great on any skin tone. But it still looks a bit too warm for my taste.
If you’re debating on whether to buy Underage Red or Outlaw, I wouldn’t stress too much, because you’re basically getting the same shade.
This shade… oh my god.
Nosferatu is a pretty dark, rich, deep red.
It almost looks like blood (or tomato sauce if you wanna be less creepy). Personally, I believe this is a color that will look stunning on any skin tone. It’s just a matter of whether you’re feeling bold and fierce enough to wear it. In terms of formula, Nosferatu also feels pretty light. I wouldn’t say it’s as light as Susperia and L.U.V., but it still feels pretty light nonetheless.
Personally, I love this shade. It is my go-to red. I wear it no matter what look I’m doing with the rest of my face. It’s just such a deep, rich, sexy red and I feel seductive, powerful, and amazing whenever I wear it.
If you find Underage Red or Outlaw to be too bright for you, then I would definitely recommend trying out Nosferatu.
As far as I know, Echo is the only blue that’s currently in the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick line.
Rubbing off all these liquid lipsticks has caused my skin to look irritated at this point. Therefore, Echo looks like a blue with a purple undertone on my lips.
However, Echo is supposed to be a “satin navy blue.”
This is a very pretty color, but it is very dark and dramatic. It’s not something that I think would be good to wear at work, church, or at some other formal event. I think that Echo would look good with almost any skin tone, but again, this is a color that not a lot of people wear on a consistent basis, myself included. Another thing I should mention is that this seems to be one of the few shades that are a little streaky. Therefore, you might have to reapply a couple of times in order to get the full pigmentation. This becomes a little problematic, because adding more product makes my lips feel a little heavier and drier.
I like Echo, but as I said before, it’s not a color that I wear every day. I only use this shade whenever I want to go with a more dramatic, mystical-mermaid look.
If you want some bold, blue-ass lips, by all means, go ahead and check out Echo. It’s definitely a nice color if you want something dark and vampy, yet fun.
This is perhaps the most amazing name ever given to lipstick.
Black lipstick is probably the boldest of the bold. A lot of people seem to be afraid of wearing black lipsticks, which is understandable to an extent. At the same time, I think black lipstick looks great on all skin tones. Again, it’s all just a matter of how bold you are.
If you’re someone who doesn’t like to wear bold colors, then I would not recommend this lipstick to you for obvious reasons.
No matter what kind of look you’re doing, whether you want soft or dramatic eyeshadow, this color is going to stand out. If you’re pale like me, you might look a little gothic, but if you’re okay with that, then you should have no problem wearing this.
But what I particularly like about this lipstick and black lipstick, in general, is how good it is to use for creating ombre looks. I’ve used this with purple, blue, and red. No matter what I use, I always fall in love with the results. But again, it always does end up looking very dramatic.
The only complaint I have about Witches is that it is a bit streaky.
I do find myself having to apply a few extra coats just so that the lipstick will look smooth and even on my lips. Of all the black lipsticks I’ve ever owned, this one doesn’t seem to be the blackest, if that makes sense. It does look a little faded until I add more layers on top of each other. This, again, makes the lipstick feel heavier because of the numerous applications, but that’s the price I’m willing to pay for Brandon Lee lips, damn it!
I absolutely love Witches, it’s so much fun!
My lips feel like they’re on fire.
Here are my final thoughts on the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks.
- I don’t understand why there are basically two of the same shades in the collection (looking at you, Underage Red and Outlaw)
- A couple of the shades are streaky (Echo and Witches)
- I wouldn’t say they stay on perfectly for 24-hours; the shades do fade a little after a few hours, especially if you’ve been doing mouth-oriented activities
- These are expensive
- The packaging is gorgeous
- Pretty much all of the shades have a lot of pigmentation
- The applicator has a nice shape and makes outlining the lips very easy
- Most of the shades are very lightweight, especially Susperia and L.U.V.
- Based on a little research, the shades seem to suit a wide variety of skin tones
- Doesn’t make my skin itchy or feel like it’s burning
- Overall, the formula is pretty high-quality
If you want to purchase any of these lipsticks, then check them out at Sephora
or at Kat Von D Beauty’s official site. The lipsticks retail for twenty dollars each, which is a bit expensive, but I personally think that the quality is worth the price.
That concludes my review on the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks Part One.
As I said at the beginning, I’ll make more posts as I add more shades to my collection. Until then, I really do think that despite how expensive these lipsticks are, you are paying for great quality. However, I plan to do a post on inexpensive lipsticks in the future.
In the meantime, let me ask you: what lipsticks have you tried and loved lately? Do you prefer liquid lipsticks or regular bullet ones? Do you base your entire look on your lipstick or your eyeshadow? Let me know in the comments!
