Kat Von D Noble Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
Kat Von D Noble Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

Kat Von D Noble Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “petal pink nude.” It’s a brightened, light-medium peach with a hint of pink and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage, but it was one of the harder-to-apply shades in the range. It was sheerer and thinner, so it was prone to streaking, but the formula would allow for you to apply a second coat to get better coverage out of it (and probably minimize some of the streaking). The color lasted for almost six hours, but it had more noticeably faded from the center after four hours for me, so it doesn’t fade as evenly as you’d like (especially with a lighter/brighter shade such as this one). It was slightly drying after four hours of wear. Burberry Pink Apricot (301) (P, $30.00) is darker, glossier. Melt Cosmetics Summer! (P, $19.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. MAC Riot House (LE, $16.00) is lighter, brighter. Anastasia Pure Hollywood (P, $20.00) is cooler. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lament (P, $18.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. Maybelline Daringly Nude (P, $7.99) is darker, more muted, less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Kat Von D Bow ‘n’ Arrow Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “fawn nude.” It’s a muted, medium-dark beige-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and an ultra matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly. It was soft when dried, and it didn’t “crack” or look split down the lip lines after it dried down. The drying time was a little faster than many other shades I’ve tried from the formula. The color lasted for six and a half hours on me with little breakdown but was slightly drying after the fifth hour of wear. MAC Velvet Teddy (P, $16.00) is warmer, glossier. Burberry Antique Pink (303) (P, $30.00) is cooler, glossier. MAC Nude (LE, $16.00) is darker, glossier. MAC Whirl (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Stone (P, $16.00) is darker, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “long-wear, full coverage liquid lipstick with a smooth, matte finish.” Of the liquid lipsticks on the market that go and have a full dry-down, Kat Von D’s formula remains my favorite, as it is the easiest to apply with the kindest learning curve and lasts awhile. Some shades are more drying than others, but typically they don’t get drying until after five to six hours of wear. They often wear anywhere from six to ten hours, depending on what you’ve had to eat or drink during the day. This formula is thin but not watery, has a longer dry down than most liquid lipsticks (but I noticed some of the newer shades dried to a mostly dry finish faster), and layers better than most (you can touch-up or add a second layer for more coverage). It takes about a minute for it to mostly set, but it will remain a little tacky in places for up to three minutes so you’ll want to avoid pressing your lips together if it doesn’t seem totally dry initially. There isn’t a noticeable scent or taste. If you don’t mind the trade-off between very long, near-pristine wear and being drying, it’s worth checking out. As a bonus, these also come with one of the most generous amounts of products within the realm of liquid lipsticks!
