I have had my eye on the Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks for quite some time now, and this particular shade (Lovesick) seems to sell out at Sephora almost instantly. I had registered interest in this shade online, and when I had the email to say it was in stock decided that was the time to do my first Sephora shop of 2016!
My Sephora order arrived very quickly and I was planning on doing a haul post and sharing with you what I had ordered including the Kat Von D makeup setting mist. Unfortunately however this leaked all over my order and ruined the contents of it which is a real shame, but on the upside this lipstick survived!
The lipstick comes in a relatively long tube with an extra long applicator to match. This made applying the lipstick relatively easy. I would say it is important (with any liquid lipstick not just the Kat Von D’s) that you apply very neatly to your lips and avoid the temptation some people have to enhance the lips by applying slightly beyond the lip line. This is because when the lipstick dries it becomes very apparent!
Lovesick is a lovely rosey pink that is very flattering to wear. It reminds me ever so slightly of Sandwash Pink by Bobbi Brown with its earthy tones.
I applied this lipstick in the morning and it lasted relatively well. It did need a top up to keep it looking tidy but this was more out of choice than necessity.
A little tip I would give to make this lipstick look its best is to ensure you have exfoliated and moisturised your lips well before application. The very nature of this lipstick is that it is drying and this makes it unforgiving to any rough patches.
Getting my ‘kiss’ swatch was rather difficult as it dried and wouldn’t transfer at all! It was also difficult to wipe off my hand after I had swatched it.
I would recommend this lipstick to all, and I can certainly see why this shade is so popular. I wouldn’t necessarily rush to buy another one purely because there are not many muted colours to choose from. I would however love it if you could recommend any other pretty shades for me to try.
You can purchase the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick for $20.00. It feels so good knowing that us Brits are no longer excluded from the delights that Sephora has to offer!
Talk to you all soon x
