Review Overview

A long-wearing yet moisturizing liquid lipstick might seem like a paradox, but Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick exceeds expectations and lives up to its claims!

The tapered wand applicator makes it easy to control the thin liquid, but if you're not used to liquid lipstick, go slowly and dab on the color—a lipliner like Paula's Choice Anti-Feather Lipliner also helps to keep the fluid from migrating into any fine lines around the mouth.

Once you have the technique down, this lipstick is a breeze to use. Just one coat is enough to add full, opaque color to the lips. After application, the color quickly sets to a non-drying matte finish and stays vibrant for at least three hours before a touch-up is necessary.

Our one complaint?—We wish there were more than a handful of colors available. Still, the selection of pinks and earthy reds are versatile enough to provide options for all skin tones.

  • Sets to a non-drying matte finish.
  • Long-wearing, vibrant lip color.
  • Tapered wand makes for easy application.
  • One coat adds full, opaque color to lips.
  • Alcohol-free.
  • Pricey.
  • Tricky to apply.
Brand Overview

Kat Von D At-A-Glance

Strengths: Excellent eyeshadow palettes and trios; long-wearing cream and liquid lipstick; High Voltage Skin eyeshadow primer; Sin-Full Mascara.

Weaknesses: Several pricey products; Tattoo and Dark Circle Eraser is disappointing; Lock-it Tattoo Foundation is average at best, and, unfortunately, is the only foundation option; Autograph Pencil is the only eyeliner pencil, and it’s not worth the money; no powder or blush brushes.

Celebrity makeup lines are nothing new—we’ve seen dozens of them over the years—but this one is a first in that it shocked us a bit, and we are not easily shocked. Kat Von D’s claim to fame is her successful tattooing enterprise, and her role as a former reality TV show star—she also was once engaged to Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband. (You just can’t make this kind of stuff up.) Despite the ups and downs of her back-story, Kat Von D is now a makeup entrepreneur, and a 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 the High Voltage Skin eyeshadow primer and Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick—both of which received our top rating. Also worth checking out are Sin-Full Mascara and Painted Love Lipstick. Just like most makeup lines, this is one to shop carefully; for every great product, there’s one that underperforms or ends up being a waste of money.

Kat Von D’s line of makeup products is actually quite good for the most part, and far better than we were expecting. This is definitely a brand to consider assuming you’re OK with the prices and the knowledge that in most cases you can find similar and even better options available for far less. (We are not okay with doing expensive when less expensive can knock your socks off!)

All Kat Von D makeup products come packaged with the line’s signature images of roses and thorns (perhaps to reinforce Von D’s love of tattoo design), which definitely makes these products stand out among a sea of blandly packaged makeup containers.

Lovely but stains

I just got the Backstage Bambi shade and it wears well on the lips all day. It does feel dry after a couple hours but still looks great. I wore it for about 9 hours and I took it off with Paula's Choice Lip Exfoliant. My lips are still stained neon pink which looks hilarious since I went slightly over my lip line. I'll just wear a different lipstick tomorrow and it will be fine but keep the staining in mind! It doesn't have much of a scent and it goes away as soon as it dries.

I have not tried the product yet but interested. Only one thing would make me hesitate in buying it is, what is the smell like? Could this be added to the review? Thanks! Di
