Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks (Review & Lip Swatches)

These liquid lipsticks have been around for awhile but the packaging has changed. These are claimed to be long-wearing and pigmented lipsticks with matte finish. They're infused with Vitamin A, C and E for added hydration. Each lipstick retails for $24 CAD ($19 USD) and contains 0.22 oz of product.
UPDATE: Here's my latest video with lip swatches of 12 shades (Lolita, Bow N Arrow, Lolita II, Susperia, Double Dare,  Berlin, Beloved, Bachelorette, Oulaw, Nosferatu, Vampira, Exorcism).
I initially bought the shade Lolita and I was in love with it (I can see why everyone raves about it), so I ordered 3 more: Outlaw, Bachelorette and Vampira. I also have a deluxe sample of Berlin.
List of Colors

It has a doe-foot applicator that makes it easy to apply.

How to Apply: Draw lip outline with applicator tip and then fill in color. When you first apply it, it looks glossy but then it dries down to a matte finish in less than a minute. Try to work fast because when it dries out, you get less control.
Tip: If your lips aren't smooth or feel dry, then exfoliate and moisturize your lips before applying these. That will give a better application. 

How to Remove: These come off easily with waterproof makeup remover!

Here are the swatches of the five shades on my hand:


This is my favorite out of all of them! It's their most popular shade and it's usually sold out online. Many people noted that the color has changed though and that it's darker than the original one. However, that color will be re-released as "Lolita II" along with other new shades in 2015. I love this shade as it is but I'd love to buy that one as well just to see how it compares to this one.

This is such a vibrant color! I'll most likely will be wearing it during spring/summer because it's quite bright.


This is such a beautiful shade! I like the fact that it's not too bright and I'd  personally wear this throughout the whole year.


I love red, so there's no doubt I had to get this one! It's a must-have! I find red looks great on almost everyone.


Vampira - deep reddish burgundy
True to it's name; this is definitely a vampy lipstick! It reminds me of a lot of MAC Diva. This is also another of their popular shade!
I love these liquid lipsticks! They're very pigmented, matte and long wearing (that's exactly what I look for in lipsticks). They can be a little tricky to apply but I don't mind. I'd love to own all of the shades. I've been trying to get my hands on Bauhau5 but it's usually sold out! I'm also very excited for the release of new shades in 2015.
    • Pigmented: These lipsticks are very pigmented! In just one swipe, you can cover most of your lips. 
    • Matte: These apply like a gloss but dry down to a matte finish. 
    • Long-wearing: These last me at least 6 hours even when I eat. I barely need to touch up. Keep in mind that if you eat oily/greasy food then these will start fading away quickly. 
    • Fade away nicely: They fade away beautifully. By that I mean it doesn't leave a line around your lips like some lipsticks/glosses do.
    • Little or no transfer: Once these liquid lipsticks dry out, there's barely any or no transfer at all. You won't have to worry about having lipstick on your teeth later on (it can happen only when you apply them).
    • Slightly uncomfortable on lips: Although these don't dry out your lips, they certainly do feel dry. It bothered me a little at first but then I got used to it.



  1. These are great swatches! I'm definitely after one of these and Lolita looks beautiful!
