Warning: controversial post ahead!
The internet is singing the praises of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick. It can be purchased from Sephora for $20. I feel like I gave it a really fair chance, but I just can’t stand this lipstick and I feel mildly traumatized by the experience of wearing it.
Above is a picture of the neutral pink shade that was okay. It dried out my lips and faded really fast, but I didn’t hate it. The one I hated, I threw away before I could take a picture. It was one of the bright red shades. I had tried it once and really liked it. While it dried out my lips, it had stayed in place for several hours while I was working (but not eating). I decided to wear it out when I had lunch with a dear friend. We went to a local restaurant and I ordered a sandwich. The first bite I took, I could feel the lipstick smear. Now, this was two hours after I had applied the lipstick, so it should have had a chance to dry. But no, I now had bright red lipstick smeared all over my face. I looked at my friend whose eyes had gone wide with shock. “Is it everywhere?” I asked and she nodded. I grabbed a mirror from my purse and my face was even worse than I imagined – it looked like a crime scene. I tried wiping it away with the back of my hand, but that somehow made it worse. It was then that I realized that our table was as far away from the bathroom as possible. I was just too vain to walk across the restaurant where anyone could see the catastrophe. I grabbed the bright white cloth napkin (I know I ruined it – I felt so bad!) and dabbed it in my water glass and was eventually able to salvage my face.
So, that’s my Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick horror story. I know these are holy grails for some people, but I just wanted to share my experience too.
