Kat Von D Vampira Everlasting Liquid Lipstick , $20, available at katvondbeauty.com
I had wanted to try one of the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks by Kat Von D for a long time now, so while my sister decided to go on a mini vacation to Las Vegas last year, I asked her to bring one of these for me and ever since have regretted not asking her for more. Read on further to know why…
The Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick comes in a transparent tube with a black cap and gorgeous silver lettering of the Kat Von D logo. Honestly, I just love the packaging. Its dark and mysterious and absolutely stunning.
The lipstick has a consistency that is neither runny nor creamy, but somewhere in between. It spreads beautifully on the lip and one dip is enough to completely coat the lips. A second one is still required to make the finish fully opaque. It takes about a few seconds to set after which it is completely smudge proof and transfer proof. Also, given the fact that 99% of liquid lipsticks are drying, this one definitely hit me by surprise because this was NOT drying on my lips at all so yays to that. Also, you don’t necessarily need a lip liner with this lipstick because it stays well within the lip lines and doesn’t bleed.
The shade Vampira is described as a deep reddish burgundy. It is a very warm toned burgundy with deep red tones and a slight sheen when it dries. This shade is not exactly unique in my opinion. From what I reckon, MAC Diva, ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip LAX or Maybelline Burgundy Blush are quite similar shades, though not exactly same.
Overall, I really loved using the Kat Von D VAMPIRA Everlasting Liquid Lipstick which is one of the most comfortable liquid lip formulas with complete matte finish and non-drying texture that I have tried. I do wish to try more from this range soon too. Vampira is one of those shades that you can find in many other brands, however, its the texture and finish that makes it a really unique shade to wear.
