Hushed whispers, revered tones, gasps of excitement – beauty addicts know what it’s like when you come across a cult-favourite product. Over the years, we’ve heard fabulous reviews and tons of praise about Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks but somehow we never got around to trying them out. All that changed on our last trip to Sephora! With shaky hands and pulsing hearts, we purchased the ever-coveted ‘Lolita II’. Here is our review.
On the packaging front, Kat Von D has kept this product functional, with a hint of edginess. The transparent, plastic tube may not feel luxurious, but allows you to see the exact shade of the lipstick. The black cap bears a silver rose design, which adds to the chic factor of the product. The lipstick comes with an attached doe-foot applicator, which is slimmer than the norm, but manages to reach every corner of your pout. The shade name is printed on a sticker at the bottom of the tube.
In terms of formula, this lipstick definitely lives up to the hype! The thick, creamy texture glides easily across lips to provide full coverage. As instructed, we refrained from smacking our lips together and allowed the lipstick to dry down completely to its ultra matte finish. ‘Lolita II’ is a beautiful terracotta nude with orange undertones, that magically manages to suit all complexions. Whilst one swipe is enough to evenly coat your lips, you can layer on more to get a deeper colour.
The brand claims that this lipstick will stay on for 24 hours and although we didn’t test it out for that long, we were thoroughly impressed with the results! The colour stayed true throughout the 8-hour period in which we wore it, without any fading or bleeding. However, those with drier pouts will notice a minor amount of flaking, which can easily be remedied by applying lip balm. The formula stayed strong against water and coffee, but does breakdown a bit when faced with oily food.
Long lasting, pigmented and universally flattering, this baby is worth all the adulation! Swipe it on for comfortable, plush lips that look as good as they feel.
