Stash Status: Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks

Ah the plight of the beauty blogger...plan to talk about a lipstick range and what does the company do? Release a crap tonne more shades. Sigh.

Well before Kat Von D expanded her Everlasting Liquid Lipstick range to an amazing 43 shades, I was gifted L.U.V by Heidi. That was the hot colour at the time and I was very happy to try the formula. I was still new to this liquid lipstick thing and these ones were being raved about all across social media. Now that we're inundated with so many options from so many companies, the Everlasting formula is still a favourite of many. As I said, with that impressive shade range there's bound to be a favourite colour for everyone.

The formula dries to a complete matte finish. Some people can't stand that and some love it so it really is a matter of preference. It's not a mousse texture like the ones from Pretty Zombie Cosmetics therefore they'll be less instances of transfer. I've found that opacity varies by shade.

'Lolita' and 'Plath' are definitely my favourite but 'Bow N Arrow' is surprisingly wearable. 'Plath' was the easiest to reach full opacity. 'Roxy' gimme licks; every time I put my lips together the product would transfer my bottom lip to the top.

As you can see, these show every line on yuh mout. Exfoliation prior to application is a must. This isn't the type of formula that favours reapplication. Also, topping later with a gloss will cause the product to break down. That said, 'Lolita' wears away gracefully and stands up to a few drinks and finger food.

I'm happy that the brand allows consumers to try the products via mini sets and duos; cause $20USD a pop is seyin serious.

The wand features a typical doe foot applicator on both versions (full and mini sizes). I like the curved tip it comes to since you can use that to outline your lips.

The colours dry down a bit darker than when first applied but the shade shown in the tube is still a good indicator.

All in all I think this is a solid entry to the liquid lipstick game if you don't mind the price. I gotta mention the shade range again; massive! And a good set of those are nudes 😍

***update***

I forgot the most important information: full size - 6.6 ml / 0.22 fl. oz. At $20USD per that's a way better deal than the Stila ones (0.10 oz. / 3 ml for $24USD).

'L.U.V' ingredients from its box: Isododecane, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Hydrogenated Styrene/Isoprene Copolymer, Polyethylene, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Wax, Propylene Carbonate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Pentaerythrityl Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Dicalcium Phosphate. May contain (+/-): Red 28 Lake (CI 45410), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Yellow 6 Lake (CI 15985), Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090), Red 6 Lake (CI 15850), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492). Made in Italy.

The minis are 0.10 fl. oz. / 3.0 ml and often come in duos or the occasional set. Price range: $20 - $49 USD. If my eyes ain't in a wobble that means a Kat Von D mini contains the same amount of product as a full size Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick 😲
