Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
A long-wearing yet moisturizing liquid lipstick might seem like a paradox, but Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick exceeds expectations and lives up to its claims! The tapered wand applicator makes it easy to control the thin liquid, and the color is richly pigmented.
Kat Von D included a nice range of color options, with something for every skin tone and preference among its shade range of rose pinks to deep violets.
The formula is quite fluid, so it may take a bit of practice if you aren’t experienced with such formulas—but once you have the technique down, this lipstick is a breeze to use. After application, the opaque color quickly sets to a non-drying matte finish and stays vibrant for at several hours. Everlasting Liquid Lipstick lives up to its name in some respects, as we found this lasted well through eating and drinking and it was several hours before a touch up was needed.
For its beautiful and versatile color range, comfortable feel and longwearing performance, Everlasting Liquid Lipstick earns our praises and top rating.
- Sets to a non-drying matte finish.
- Long-wearing, vibrant lip color.

Kat Von D At-A-Glance
Celebrity makeup lines are nothing newweve seen dozens of them over the yearsbut this one is a first in that it shocked us a bit. Kat Von Ds main claim to fame was her successful tattooing enterprise, and her role as a former reality TV show star. Now, she's a makeup entrepreneurand a very good one.
The line launched in 2007 with only two eyeshadow palettes, cream lipstick, and eyeliner, but since has expanded by adding several new products, including remarkable lip products, blushes and more. Just like most makeup lines, this is one to shop carefully; for every great product, there are a few that could use improvement.
All Kat Von D makeup products come packaged with the lines signature images of roses and thorns (perhaps to reinforce Von Ds love of tattoo design), which definitely makes these products stand out among a sea of blandly packaged makeup containers.
Strengths: Excellent eyeshadow palettes and trios; long-wearing cream and liquid lipstick; truly lasting powder blushes and bronzers.
Weaknesses: A few products on the pricey side (this is a minor quibble).
