Recently I posted about my first impressions of the Sephora Give Me More Lip Ultimate Lip Sampler (read that post here), its an amazing limited edition gift set that Sephora released for Christmas and contains 16 different high end lipsticks/glosses/balms etc. I said I would review the products that stood out and the Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick definitely fell into that category.
This is the first liquid lipstick I have ever tried and I definitely want to delve more into that world now. I have a very unhealthy obsession with lip products, I easily have well over 100 (and still can’t stop buying them) but I have never come across anything like this before!
This is definitely one of the most pigmented lip products I have and also one of the most garish colours I own too, I would have never picked it in a million years, but I love it! This applies like a lip gloss, appearing slightly glossy on application but drying to a completely matte finish. Despite its ultra matte finish, this lipstick is not drying in the slightest and it is so nice to have found a matte lip product that doesn’t cling to my incredibly dry lips.
This liquid lipstick is ridiculously pigmented and does tend to stain the lips even if only wearing for a short time. This is also completely unscented which I know is something a lot of people prefer, I don't mind either way. The doe foot applicator makes application relatively easy although the strong pigmentation does mean you have to take some time applying it.
This is a sample sized version and although Kat Von D makeup isn't available in the UK, you can get it from Rose's Beauty Store, an incredible website (that I want everyone to know about, so never stop talking about) that enables you to get products in the UK from the US. You can buy 'Backstage Bambi' from Rose's Beauty Store here for £21.99 and there are also three other Kat Von D liquid lipsticks from the 'Foiled Love' range which have a metallic finish.
Here are some swatches:
As you can see the finish is completely matte and such a bright colour too, the pigmentation is amazing. I absolutely love this and the quality is amazing, I just think its a little too bright for me for every day use, I'm not brave enough to rock a bold lip like this...yet! But this is perfect for those of you that crave an ultra bright and bold lip colour.
This is my first impression of Kat Von D as a brand and I am really impressed so far, Rose's Beauty Store have a huge range of her products, so I am definitely going to try some different items very soon!
