Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks

This week I’ll be focusing all my attention on this one product. I know liquid lipsticks have exploded on the beauty scene in the past year; multiple affordable options are now available but I will always be loyal to the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks. You may or may not be over the whole matte lip trend but let me tell you about these! You need to know this!

It all started with my first ‘perfect’ liquid lipstick, the Lime Crime Velveteen. It was my first introduction to a liquid lipstick and I was floored, what a brilliant concoction. Of course, Lime Crime has an outlandish shade range, is hard to get and the website has sketchy credentials which led to an epic google search to find the perfect liquid lipstick formula.

After discounting similar options from Stila and MUFE, I went ahead and purchased Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bauhau5, a deep raspberry pink. The formula won me over! It’s lightweight, thin in consistency, pigmented and long wearing. What more could you ask for. It ticked all boxes but my main motivation behind it was the famed ‘transfer resistant’ quality. Around 10-15 minutes after it sets, it turns truly matte and is very much transfer proof unless you rub hard at it. It will last through an entire meal though it will come off if it comes in contact with oily/greasy food. Even so, it will leave a stain behind and not flake or crumble over time.

It sits well over a thin lip balm layer while applying and doesn’t feel overly drying. It’s by far my most comfortable liquid lipstick I’ve used. Happy with the $20 I spent on Bauhau5, the next purchase I made was Lolita which is the perfect mauve nude! It’s very hard to capture the exact shade because the lighting can make it look more brown or pink. Although it’s described as a chestnut rose, I feel like it leans more cool-toned on me. If I’m going out for dinner or movies and I want a long wearing lipstick, Lolita is my go to! The pigmentation is even and like BauHau5, the colour deepens as you add more layers.

I wasn’t satisfied with just two though. Last year I picked up Double Dare when the shade range expanded, it’s almost a shade in between the two Lolitas but lighter. It’s hard to describe it, but it’s almost a coral leaning nude on me. And possibly the last addition to my mini collection, is Lolita II, a terracotta nude. I think I’m covered when it comes to nude liquid lipsticks now.

Out of the other liquid lipsticks in my stash, these are my favourite. A more affordable option like the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet has a good shade range and comfortable formula but I find it lacking when it comes to transfer resistance. I’ve also tried the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams which are comfortable but feel heavier on the lips and again, not quite transfer proof. Something similar like the Hourglass Opaque Rouge have a more drying and tacky formula and my lone Sephora Cream Lipstain is quite drying as well. Maybe I should do a more thorough post comparing these?

What I do like about this range are the colours and that the formula is pretty consistent among the lot! I also love mixing shades, Lolita and Lolita II together brings out the perfect nude! They’re also lightly vanilla scented which is nice. I feel like the $20 price is justifiable for the product in terms of quality and packaging, it’s worthwhile but not obscene. I also like the long doe foot applicator but I do usually go over the edges with a lipliner brush to get a more defined look. You can cover the entire lip with just one swipe of product. My only disappointment stems from the fact that you can only buy this at Sephora or the Kat von D website. It’s hard to get a hold off but if you can, it’s worth it!

So are you a liquid lipstick fanatic too? Keep me away from the Kylie Lip Kits!

    • I’m glad you like it! It would look amazing on you! xx

  • Seriously need to get these! I missed the lolita duo they came out during Christmas! 🙁 I like Lolita II a bit better than Lolita I think!

    • I wish I had gotten that too but I had already bought Lolita so I skipped it.

  • These lip colours look amazing! I love Double Dare and Lolita, they look incredible! x

    • Thanks! It’s hard to pick a favourite for me! 😉

  • They definitely look good! I like the colors. It’s great that you can even mix then if you want.

    • Yea, they’re thin enough to be mixed, it’s slight very lightweight on the lips. 🙂

  • Even I am all about liquid lipsticks these days and I love that these are transfer resistant 🙂

    • I know! I don’t know how I was managing before them! 😉

  • Bauhau5 & Double Dare are my favourites, although Lolita looks beautiful too! I’m definitely going to pick some up when I get to Sephora! xx

    • Bauhau5 is definitely one of my favourite brights!

  • Double Dare looks gorgeous, I’m a complete liquid lipstick addict, I have way too many I my collection but I just can’t stop buying them haha 🙂

  • To be honest, I haven’t even started to venture into liquid lipstick territory yet, the only one I own is the Sephora one, which doesn’t feel too drying on my lips.

    • I Sephora one is good but it just looks drier on me than KvD.

  • Wonderful shades! ♡

    ~^^ Happy Easter! ^^~

    ♡ Monday summary & haul ♡

    • Thanks! It’s long gone now but Happy Easter to you as well! xx

  • I have yet to try any Kat Von D liquid lipsticks but I have tried a few from other brands. I am surprised how gorgeous Lolita looks on your lips, the swatch looks extremely brown. I have read that NYX Suede lip cream in shade Soft Spoken is a great dupe for Lolita, maybe I’ll pick that up and hopefully it’ll suits me.

    • That’s the thing with Lolita, it looks so different based on the lighting! Even in photos sometimes it’s dark or lighter, either way I like it! 🙂

  • Bauhau5 is seriously stunning. I haven’t tried the liquid lipsticks from Kat’s line but I love that they’re now cruelty free. :]

  • Wow so stunning shades. Love it! Bauhau 5 is my fav in these 🙂

    • Ohh I’m glad you like it! I feel like it suits a lot of people! xx

  • Ahh, I really want to try these as they look amazing! It’s such a shame we can’t get them in the UK! xo

    • Yea it’s a shame but I guess you could get it from the Sephora website. 🙂

  • Ooh they’re so gorgeous! I have one in a peachy shade and I love it xx

    Gemma ♥ Miss Makeup Magpie

    • Ooh nice! I’m stopping myself at four but I’m always eyeing up the red shades!

  • Loving the look of these matte lipstick and the shades you have are so gorgeous, especially Bauhau5 and Lolita. I heard a rumour a while back that the brand might be coming to Boots in the UK and I REALLY hope it’s true x

    Beauty with charm

    • What?! Imagine a Kat Von D 3 for 2!! I really hope you try it! 🙂

  • i am a matte girl through and through and i cant pick one out of these.. they are all so lovely on you. i have the revlon matte balm in sultry and the revlon just bitten kissable lip balms, which i apply as matte stains – both get a lotta love from me, i’ve never tried liquid lipsticks before but i’m itching to get my hands on one now! xx

    The Quaffle and the Snitch

    • Ooh I don’t have Sultry but I’ve seen on loads of people, looks amazing! I hate the minty feeling of those Revlon balms but Smitten is so good. Love that shade, really made me see that I do like darker, magenta shades. 😉

  • I only have a few liquid lipsticks however I want to get a few more. I’ve been lusting over KVD products and liquid lipstick is one of them. They look different on the lips and kinda dry too, are they drying or it is the way they look? Last three are beautiful x

    • Doesn’t feel drying if you’re moisturised before. I usually wear my Nuxe lip balm for around 5-10 mins and then remove it before applying. I suppose up close the lips can look more dry but overall it does look smoother and matte. Lolita is perfect!

  • Claire Cavanagh

    These look so gorgeous – I actually haven’t tried ANY Kat Von D products and these look like a brilliant place to start 🙂 xx

    • I know there are tons of options out there now but it has the best shades of you like neutrals! x

  • These shades are absolutely stunning! I’ve been wanting to try the KVD liquid lipsticks for so long! Unfortunately we don’t have a Sephora store where I am so I would love to swatch them in person, but this post really helped me narrow down what shades I want to get online! Thanks for sharing!

    • Yea, unfortunately I had to buy most of them online as well. Particularly with Lolita it’s hard to tell how it’ll look unless it’s on the lips. Sometimes it leans more brown or more mauve.

  • Love the swatches and LOTD’s
    Would love to try it out, they are so powder matte. Awesome post

  • stunning! love double dare…and all of them are very flattering on you.

    • Thanks Fiona!! How are you doing? xx

      • I wanna try Lolita for sure! Double dare is out of stock.

      • Guess what!!! I couldn’t find double dare but Lolita is beauty too! You are enabling a lot of my purchases

  • I love all of these colors and have them all because I’m a liquid lipstick junkie haha!

  • LOVE these as well! I have Lolita and Bow n Arrow. They are such a gorgeous formula! Loving the look of Bauhau5 on you!

    • Bow n Arrow is really pretty but light for me. Lolita is holy grail!

  • I actually got my first one of these this week! I’d been looking at the shade Nosferatu ever since it launched (it came out with the new lot of shades a while back) cause it’s the perfect blood red which is my favourite shade to wear. I’ve tried a lot of liquid lipsticks in my time and the formula on these is awesome! Especially because darker shades can often start to apply patchy or with uneven colour but this one is really good, and it’s definitely transfer resistant! I love the Sephora ones as well and I think the Stila ones are awesome too, but I definitely agree that the formula is lacking on the Hourglass and Bourjois ones. Lime Crime are great too (I have Red Velvet & Wicked) but I don’t like any of their other shades and probably wouldn’t buy anything else from them anymore. But as far as liquid lipsticks go I can definitely see why these get so much hype and I’m so glad I finally picked one up!

    • True! They’re pretty consistent among all shades which is lacking in a lot of the other lines. Being transfer resistant is what really drew me in initially. And now I have four!

  • I’ve heard so many great things about the LOLITA. it’s really like a your lips but better type lipstick x

    http://www.fionnac.com

    • Yea I love that goes with any kind of makeup as well!

  • Samileen

    I have heard so many good things about Kat Von D lipsticks, that I need to check them out soon, I think I’m going to make use of my VIB sale coupon 😀
    Lolita and double dare looks like tempting shades.

    Sam || Beautydetour

    • That would be perfect! Did you get anything from the sale? xx

  • I’ve thought about picking a KVD liquid lipstick a few times because ~LIQUID LIPSTICKS ALLLLLLL THE RAGE~ but at the same time, I’m also terrified of applying opaque shades on my lips because it requires too much precision–a skill that I seriously lack (even with concealer brushes) ._. I managed to swatch Lolita and II, but they looked weird on my skintone, so I passed. If I ever do bite the bullet (heheh), it would probably have to be with Nosferatu. I love a vampy red.

    • A couple of others also mentioned that shade, I had to check it out! It’s gorgeous!

  • I want this like now
    Not even owning one , definitely going to add to my wish list

  • Hao

    I love the KVD Liquid Lipsticks! They’re so amazing and I feel like the doe foot applicator is one of the better ones because it’s not as fuzzy.

    Also, these colors look great on you!

    Hao | haodoyoungo

    • I agree, I feel like the tip also really holds the right amount of product. Thanks Hao! xx

  • Double Dare looks so pretty in your lip swatch !

  • Lovely swatches! I’ve recently picked up lolita and double dare – will try them after I’ve photographed the haul haha, but this post has made me so much more excited to try them all ^_^
