The makeup collection from Kat Von D is one of those collections that has shot to major popularity levels over the past year or two, and one that’s been on my list to try for quite a while. So when I was in Madrid last weekend, I of course paid a trip to the holy grail that is Sephora and picked up one of the liquid lipsticks to try out.
I opted for a brownish berry shade for something different and it was love from the moment I applied it. The colour itself is quite unusual for me, but I loved the richness of the tone and pigment, and still can’t get over how little I needed to get such a good colour pay off.
It’s very easy to apply with the thin angled brush applicator, and once you’ve got it on your lips, this baby is not budging for the day. Seriously! No matter what I ate or drank, the staying power was incredible so it most definitely lives up to its ‘everlasting’ title in my opinion.
I also loved how it didn’t dry out my lips at all, especially considering the long last formula. I only reapplied this once throughout the day and it wasn’t because my lips felt dry, but more because I wanted to keep the intense colour.
It’s a liquid lipstick so it’s not moisturising and it’s not really hydrating, so if you’re looking for something creamy or balm-like then this won’t be for you. However, if it’s longevity and colour pop you’re after then this is definitely a good option.
Thankfully for us Irish gals, Kat Von D launched in Debenhams a few months back and I’ve already treated myself to a few little bits that I’m waiting to use. But after using this lippy today, I’ll definitely be going back for more soon.
