Back in January, I bought Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade L.U.V. It’s a rich violet shade, and I hadn’t been brave enough to actually wear it until quite recently. Purple lipstick has become more popular in recent years, and I see people wearing it all over beauty blogs and forums, but I don’t often see people actually wearing it in person. However, last week I finally gathered the nerve to wear it out, and this post is the result of that! I’ll be sharing my thoughts on its performance, and whether I am in LUV with it or not.
Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipsticks have quite nice packaging, I like the detailing on the tube and the handle of the applicator wand. I do wish the tube was shorter and wider, because I thought the long wand made applying the lipstick precisely a bit difficult, being closer to my face would give more control. The doe foot wand was good for filling in my lips but I think in future I will use a lip brush or perhaps a lip liner to outline, especially for the cupid’s bow.

It was reasonably long wearing, and not drying unlike some other matte liquid lipsticks – by that I mean the Australis Velourlips which was terrible on me. It faded evenly, but I imagine if I had any dry skin on my lips it might not have done the same, so using a lip scrub and lip balm before applying would be a good idea. I like the cool tone of this, and how it’s not as pastel (or chalky) as TO-KI-O Australis Velourlips which I thought would be similar.
Kat Von D is sold exclusively in Sephora, in their stores and on their websites. There is now Sephora NZ and Sephora AU in addition to the the USA online store which ships to selected other countries.
Overall, I am in LUV with this lipstick, although I can’t quite promise my LUV will be everlasting. I would like to get more shades from the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick range, particularly Berlin (warm rose) and Bachelorette (dark reddish fuschia)
