REVIEW // KAT VON D BEAUTY // EVERLASTING LIQUID LIPSTICK

When my sister and I were younger, we would spend hours just watching Miami Ink and LA Ink all because I'm pretty sure we were just obsessed with Kat. She became an idol respected for her ruthless dedication to her passion and unique style. Kat's appearance plays a big part in who she is and what she stands for. Her tattoos tell stories, big or small and her makeup has always played the star.

For all my Vegan girls and boys out there, Kat Von D Beauty is the holy grail. The company is now 100% vegan, as their previous lines a few years ago were not, so they worked hard to change their formulas to remove any form of animal product. Kat is committed to the vegan lifestyle so Kat Von D Beauty features vegan products that do not contain any animal products or by-products, and have not been tested on animals.

When Kat Von D released her makeup brand, I was so excited to get my hands on her products. Living primarily in Portugal and the UK, this hasn't been easy as the shops here didn't sell them before (Even in Sephora, Portugal to my disappointment). Now Kat Von Beauty is stocked in Debenhams, UK and Sephora, Spain my wallet is going to be drained.

Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks are very popular on Instagram. I'm always seeing amazing makeup artists creating inspiring looks with them so I knew I had to get some. At the moment I'm really loving a lot of different nude shades and burgundy (well, me and everyone else at the moment). I bought the shades: Bow N Arrow, Exorcism, Noble, Melancholia, Lolita and Lolita ll. We won't mention I also have the discontinued shade Jeffree because it's a bit of a touchy subject...

These Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks apply to your lips in a smooth formula and dry on your lips matte. They are a long-wear, full-coverage lipstick that glide over like a gloss which makes the application so much easier than a regular lipstick or brush when you are out and about. I always use a lip scrub before applying them as the texture from your lips can sometimes be seen through the product (As with any matte lipstick). The word 'everlasting' on the product is probably the most accurate name to give it. If you go out for dinner with one of these bad boys on, you'll never have to be conscious about licking your lips or transferring the product onto a glass (or your date!) I genuinely still find it fascinating how well they stay on and how easy they are to remove at the end of the day with a makeup wipe. I reapply twice in day wear and once in an evening. I get complimented when I wear the shades I own and always have girls say "how the hell have you gone through the whole meal and your lipstick hasn't budged?!" This product makes you feel like you're Kat Von D's best friend who knows all the makeup secrets and looks as good as she does with lipstick on.
