KAT VON D EVERLASTING LIQUID LIPSTICK


Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade 'Poison Apple'. Link here

I've recently returned from dancing the night away at Benicassim festival, which was amazing to say the least. There's something about waking up in a ridiculously hot tent and sharing a communal makeshift shower every morning that you can't help but love, especially when it means you get to see your favourite bands live (shoutout to muse and biffy clyro). After the first leg of our holiday, we were on our way to Barcelona for a further four days and naturally, the thought of a comfy hotel bed and an actual toilet were the forgotten luxuries I was dreaming after. In the midst of my daydreaming, I completely forgot that Barcelona is one of the best cities for shopping, even the Zara flagship store flew from my brain. Luckily, Benicassim was a ridiculously cheap festival and it left me with plenty of euros to shop till I drop with and given that it was going to be my first experience of a Sephora, I made sure I had more than enough to part with.

Honestly, I was a tad underwhelmed at Barcelona's Sephora. I feel like my expectations were way too high as I assumed there was going to be endless amounts of brands to choose from, but realistically it was pretty small and pretty basic. I've heard so many things about Sephora's branded makeup, but since I was already in a sulk, the busy crowds of people hovering over the Sephora section didn't appeal to me (which I instantly regret now I'm back home, sigh). Doom and gloom aside, my sadness lifted when I spotted the Kat Von D counter and my poor hands were swatched to pieces. An assistant must of spotted my excitement as she came over and offered to do a full look for me, which was incredible to say the least. I wish I had my camera to show you my makeover, but I didn't want to risk bringing anything expensive with me at the festival so I had to make do when I was in Barcelona.

The items I fell in love with the most were definitely the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks, but honestly, I have a list as long as my arm with Kat Von D products I need to buy. I decided to be reasonably sensible and purchased a single shade for the time being, which is the shade 'Poison Apple'. The name is more than fitting as the minute I tried this colour on, I instantly felt like Snow White and needed to purchase it. This lipstick reminds me so much of Mac's 'Ruby Woo' but the finish is so much better.



These images are taken with my iPhone and are completely unedited because I wanted to show just how pigmented this lipstick is. The longevity is great, my boyfriend loves it because he can give me a peck without getting lipstick all over his chops. It's almost too good, because it's quite a pain to get off! The only downside to this lipstick is that it can get pretty tacky. I'd suggest getting a similar shade liner to line the lips before use because liquid lipsticks are really difficult to get even and the more I applied to try and get my line right, the stickier the lipstick became.

Kat also released the most loved shades in a standard lipstick line which are the 'Studded Kiss Lipsticks' (the packaging is beaut too). So I will definitely try these in the future too as I usually prefer a normal lipstick, but this item was too good to go amiss! As far as first impressions go, I love this brand and I can't wait to get my hands on some more products from Kat.. especially the infamous Lock it concealer. This experience has left me wanting to buy more and slightly disappointed at how difficult it is to get hold of here in the UK. Have you tried anything from Kat Von D before? What are your favourite products? thanks for reading!

  16. Yes oh my god yes, I literally screamed when I saw Sephora in Barcelona. And when I went in I was so so disappointed because a lot of the brands you can easily find in the UK and all the other brands weren't there. Such a let down, however, this colour on you is magic. Magic, you're stunning x

  24. That shade suits you so perfectly, love how the bold red compliments your hair colour as well. I've actually never tried any Kat Von D makeup products but that's probably because they're not easy to get a hold of in Aus unless we buy online, but that liquid lipstick looks so perfectly pigmented that it definitely makes me want to see what else Kat Von D has on offer because there's nothing I love more than when you buy makeup products and they're all super pigmented!
