Kat Von D was made for me


I must confess that a very odd part of me caused me to avoid the Kat Von D makeup display at Sephora.  “How can she possibly be attracted to Jesse James?  That girl must have NO sense at all!” I thought.  Somehow, this translated in my mind to, “I refuse to buy Kat Von D products!”  

Of course, the Ludwig Eye Palette called my name, especially since my friend, Erika, strongly recommended it.  However, I managed to stay away until a friendly visiting makeup artist at Sephora told me about the ridiculous staying power of the new Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick ($19 for 0.18 fl oz).

She said, “I was looking for a sheer, bright pink to wear on vacation.  I thought *this* would do it, but it’s ridiculously opaque!”  She then proceeded to point to a swatch on her arm of the Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick in Jeffree.  She wasn’t kidding!  It was bright!  Then she added, “Oh, and that’s been on my arm for eight hours already, by the way.”

I was hooked and I had to have one.  According to Sephora’s website, “The liquid formula goes on wet for smooth, precise application and then dries to a matte, velvety finish. Once applied, there's no need to worry about smudging or migrating.”  They couldn’t be more right!  This product glides on totally effortlessly and the doe-foot applicator allows for precision application.  Give it about 30-45 seconds and the colors dries down to a seriously velvet-looking matte.  It is AMAZING.

I picked up a tube of Berlin which I LOVE.  Sephora describes it as a “warm rose” which I can definitely agree with.  My swatches make it look awfully red on the lip but it really isn’t – it’s definitely a warm pinky-rose.

Oh, and the product wears like a magnet.  The reason I hated lipstick for many years was because I felt like it disappeared after an hour.  However, this stuff is the real deal:  Check out this cell phone picture that I took after five hours of wear, 60 oz of drink, a sandwich, and a cup of yogurt.  Ummm…amazing!

I tried on Bow & Arrow, which was absolutely terrible on me.  The Sephora employee I was working with even asked, “Who can pull off that color?  I mean…what skin tone do you need to make that look right?”  (I should add that I’m super pale and she is very dark-complexioned so neither of those skin tones work, apparently!)

However, I do have my eye on Jeffree (“bright coral pink”), Backstage Bambi (“vivid hot pink”), and Outlaw (“brick red”).  I want them ALL.

Do you need this product?  YES.  Go buy one NOW.  Remember that matte lipsticks can be a little drying and this one is no exception so you may want to apply some balm beforehand.  Also, if you're not crazy about the matte look you can swipe some clear gloss over this.  However, that will compromise the wear time by quite a bit.

You can nab one HERE or in Sephora stores.
