Hope you all are doing well. As you all are aware, I love Kat Von D and her makeup line, which is sold exclusively at Sephora. She recently released a lot of new shades in the popular “Everlasting Liquid Lipstick” range. I picked up 2 shades from the newly-released colors and this review will be on the shade “Double Dare.”
What it is:
A long-wear, full-coverage liquid lipstick with a smooth, matte finish.
What it does:
Now with 16 additional, bold shades of Everlasting Liquid Lipstick for all-night wear, this innovative formula gives lips long-lasting wear and high-pigment color. Its creamy, color-rich formula glides over lips like a gloss but dries to a true matte finish. It’s infused with natural comfort-enhancing ingredients, including vitamin E and sunflower seed so you can flaunt lasting matte color that leaves lips feeling comfortable. It is formulated without parabens.
My Experience with Kat Von D Double Dare Everlasting Liquid Lipstick:
Packaging: Comes in a sleek tube with a long doe-foot wand applicator. You can see the color of the lipstick through the tube. The lipstick is travel friendly.
Texture/Consistency: I love the texture of these liquid lipsticks by Kat von D. They are not too thick nor too runny/watery (like the Lime Crime Velvetines) . They are the perfect in between.
Shade/Finish/Pigmentation: The shade “Double Dare” is described as a cocoa blush. On me, it’s a gorgeous gorgeous shade of MLBB – deep mauve with a hint of coral and brown undertones. This shade is one shade deeper than my natural lip color. I can wear this color with almost any makeup look and it will complement it. This shade is appropriate for everyday wear and/or for evening party makeup. I absolutely love this color. This lipstick applies creamy wet and dries in 30-40 seconds to a full matte finish without any hint of shine or shimmer. These liquid lipsticks have full opaque pigmentation in 1 swipe and will cover even the most pigmented lips. They glide on super smoothly and evenly on the lips.
Feel on lips and Staying Power: This liquid lipstick is very comfortable on the lips even more than the Lime crime Velvetine (which used to feel a bit powdery on my lips after a few hours of wear). These do not feel drying and do not feel like they are sucking moisture from my lips. As is required with every liquid lipstick, these will look best if you prep your lips with exfoliation and moisturizing before use.
Tip: You can use a hydrating skin serum on your lips and wait for it to fully soak into your lips before applying liquid lipstick. This helps your lips from getting too dry and also avoids the lipstick slipping around like it would with a lip balm underneath. You only need the thinnest layer on your lips to get full coverage. I find if I apply more than one layer with any liquid lipstick, my lips feel extra dry. I do have a lot of fine lines on my lips, which this liquid lipstick does seem to exaggerate, but this is the issue I face with all liquid lipsticks. That being said, even with that quality, it does not make my lips look too horrible.
There is no flakiness throughout the day. It does not transfer at all. It wears flawlessly through the day. I usually get 7-8 hours of wear with no fading. I usually only wear makeup for this long, but I am sure, it would wear longer if I didn’t remove it.
It survives through multiple drinks and snack breaks and even will get through a whole meal provided it does not contain any oil. If you are eating something which is oily, this liquid lipstick breaks down and becomes prone to smearing, and then transfers. At this point, I find it best to wipe my lips clean and reapply after eating.
Fragrance: There is a very faint makeup-y scent which fades quickly.
Overall, I am highly impressed with these liquid lipsticks by Kat Von D and will absolutely recommend them. If you had to pick any one shade from this range, I would highly recommend the shade “Double Dare.” I think it will be very flattering for desi skin tones. The texture and staying power is absolutely fantastic.
