Continuing on my love of liquid lipsticks…
Kat Von D is an American Tattoo artist who turned her attention to makeup a few years ago, and thank goodness she did.
I first bought a Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick when I was in Florida last year, and I bought the shade Armageddon, which is a bright pink, not dissimilar to ABH’s Unicorn.
The shade is bright, stands out, and wears incredibly well.
Since then, I’ve bought Lolita, Mother and Lovesick (while I was in Barcelona in January this year)!
You’ve probably heard everyone rave about Lolita, and can I just say, it is so worth the hype! I ended up buying 2 because I loved the shade so much (at the time, I wasn’t sure when I would be able to buy KvD products again since Spain and America were my only options)!
Lolita is the perfect every day shade, a nudey chestnut colour that suits a wide variety of skin colours. Not only is it great to wear every day, you can pair it with a extravagant eye look too, so it’s the perfect shade to transition from morning to night.
Mother and Lovesick are stunning pinks, both very different as you can see from the swatches. I love wearing them when I have soft makeup on, just to add a little kick!
The Kat Von D liquid lipsticks don’t have a smell (or none that I can detect!) and they wear well. The applicator is very long and thin, which can make it awkward to apply and easy to mess up. If you do mess up, it’s essential to wipe the mistake away before it dries as it can stain, especially the darker or brighter the colour.
The shades wear well, though not as long lasting through eating etc as Jeffree Star.
You lucky Americans and Australians can buy these liquid lipsticks from Sephora, or directly from the Official Kat Von D site (US only).
Fellow Europeans, if you’re in Spain, you’re so lucky, you can buy them from Sephora Spain. I’ve heard a few rumors that KvD will be coming to Sephora France soon, but there isn’t a concrete date yet.
The liquid lipsticks cost around $20 or €19.90, so are in the same price range as ABH or Jeffree Star.
With such a wide variety of colours that can be worn with practically any look you can imagine, as well as their stay power, it’s definitely a great purchase and a great brand.
Oh! And for the animal conscious makeup lovers out there, Kat Von D is a cruelty free brand, with many vegan products. Not all the products are vegan however, but if you check the official Kat Von D website, the info is all there on which products are/are not vegan.
