Kat Von D Holiday 2016 Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Mini Set

Kat Von D Holiday 2016 Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Mini Set
Kat Von D Holiday 2016 Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Mini Set

Kat Von D Holiday 2016 Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Mini Set ($49.00 for 0.80 fl. oz.) includes eight miniature sized shades of liquid lipstick. The Everlasting Liquid Lipstick formula is supposed to be long-wearing, have full coverage, and be ultra-matte. In my experience, most shades are pigmented, apply well, and wear all day long. Some shades are slightly drying to moderately drying, but they tend to fade evenly and are one of the most comfortable liquid lipstick formulas I’ve come across.

Six of the shades are from the existing, permanent shade line-up, while two (Plath and Roxy) are new. I had trouble applying two shades–Roxy and Echo–as they were sheerer, more watery, and ended up patchy and uneven on the lips. L.U.V. seemed a bit drier, almost powder-like, in its finish compared to the permanent version. I’m not sold on the set overall, but if you tend to like liquid lipsticks (or in particular, Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks) and take awhile to finish shades, I think these are sized right that you get enough product for many uses but will be able to finish them, too.

Mother is a medium-dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It was very nearly opaque in a single layer, and the color spread evenly across the lips and did not turn patchy or uneven. The color didn’t emphasize my lip lines or “crack” when I smiled, as the formula felt flexible on but still transfer-proof. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me and was slightly drying overall. Kat Von D Mother (LE, $21.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (95% similar).

Plath is a dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented and covered the lips with opaque, even coverage. The texture was less flexible to me after it had dried down, and it seemed prone to emphasizing the natural texture of my lips. The color lasted for almost eight hours and was drying after six hours of wear. Colour Pop Love Bug (P, $6.00) is more muted (85% similar). Milani Crush (LE, $8.99) is warmer (95% similar).

Backstage Bambi is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage and felt more watery when I was applying it. The color had some visible streaking, even after it dried (it didn’t self-level) and seemed a bit more matte than the permanent version I have. It wore well for six hours but faded somewhat unevenly and was a bit drying. Sephora Whipped Blush (LE, $14.00) is lighter, more muted (95% similar). MAC Flamboyish (LE, $17.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). Anastasia Party Pink (P, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Santa Sangre is a bold, bright, medium orange-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was very nearly opaque in one layer (a second dab would definitely finish it off) that applied easily with smooth, even coverage. The consistency dried down and didn’t enhance lips but didn’t emphasize the natural texture either. On me, the color wore well for over seven hours and was just a touch drying after four and a half hours of wear. Bite Beauty Braised Maple (LE, $24.00) is glossier (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Rei of Light (212) (P, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Fashion Legacy (P, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar).

L.U.V. is a bright, medium-dark purple with a matte finish and warmer, pink undertones. The color payoff was semi-opaque, but it was even, and it had a very dry, more powder-like matte finish. It did not seem as flexible or as forgiving as the permanent version to me, ase this one “cracked” slightly. It lasted for seven hours but faded unevenly starting from the center of the mouth and was moderately drying over time. Colour Pop Drive In (DC, $6.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Bittersweet (DC, $22.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). MAC Night Blooming (LE, $19.00) is brighter, glossier (90% similar).

Roxy is a bold, dark purple with cool, blue undertones and matte finish. It was semi-sheer, moderately buildable up to medium coverage (two layers), and it had a thinner, more watery consistency. This thinness made it prone to applying unevenly and streaky. The more layers I tried, the worse it look, as it would be pigmented in places and still sheer in others. It lasted for seven hours, but it had a splotchy fade going on as the areas that it was sheerer faded away more noticeably first. My lips started to feel dry after four hours of wear. Colour Pop Be-dazzled (LE, $6.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Lust Extract (LE, $17.00) is darker, glossier (80% similar). Illamasqua ESP (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). MAC Matte Royal (P, $17.00) is cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Echo is a deep, muted navy blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff paired with a thinner texture that was prone to patchiness, though it didn’t seem as streaky as other thin shades. I also felt like it was a bit more pigmented and easier to apply than the permanent version, though they both were shades I struggled to apply overall. The color lasted for seven hours and was somewhat uneven in how it faded over time. It was drying after four and a half hours of wear. Too Faced Who's Zoomin' Who (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). MAC Matte Royal (P, $17.00) is brighter, cooler, glossier (85% similar). Colour Pop Climax (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Urban Decay Heroine (P, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar).

Kat Von D MetalMatte Eyeshadow Palette

Kat Von D MetalMatte Eyeshadow Palette
Kat Von D MetalMatte Eyeshadow Palette

Kat Von D MetalMatte Eyeshadow Palette ($60.00 for 1.32 oz.) includes 22 eyeshadows in a slim–but mega-sized–cardboard palette. There are nine Metal Crush eyeshadows (each is 0.06 oz.) and 13 matte Eyeshadows (each is 0.06 oz.). I really liked that they included the Metal Crush formula into their holiday palette–most obviously because I think the formula is amazing–but it distinguishes the shimmery shades in this palette from a generic shimmer eyeshadow formula. The palette offers versatility in undertones, finishes, and overall richness as a lot of the matte eyeshadows can be used to tamp down the brightness of some of the shimmery shades. The only thing that I think felt excessive is the size; it is the largest palette I’ve come across–it measured 11.5″ across!

Worth noting is the stellar lettering job; the palette reads matte/metal depending on the direction (it flips), which I thought it was a very nice touch. The palette is also a tremendous value, even if accounting for the value of the matte eyeshadows is harder (there are no singles available), the value of the Metal Crush eyeshadows alone is almost double the price of the whole palette. I also think that regardless of a price-per-ounce valuation, $60 is a fair price given it is a mid-end brand and has 22 eyeshadows.

Overall, I was impressed by the quality, pigmentation, and application of the palette–mattes are very difficult to use without primer, so the fact that I could use the majority of them without tearing my hair out was exciting. It also has some more unique shades, some shades we’ve seen but not relentlessly, and then some workhorse shades that will help bring the palette together. It will also play nicely with other palettes and eyeshadows that you may have in your stash, too. It’s also a great way to play and try the Metal Crush formula without paying $21 a pop.

Watt is a muted, medium-dark teal with cooler, blue undertones and a metallic sheen. The color payoff was fantastic, while the texture was fairly soft, blendable, and smooth enough to sit well on bare skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours.

Ignite is a light-medium bluish aqua with subtle, warmer overtones and a metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation, but the consistency was noticeably chunkier and had a denser feel–it had to really be pressed and pushed into the skin to apply smoothly, so it wasn’t as blendable or as easy to use as the other Metal Crush eyeshadows in the range. The color started to crease faintly after eight hours of wear. NARS Bavaria (P, $25.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Deep End (LE, $29.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Tinsel is a sparkling, light-medium pewter gold with warmer undertones and a glitter finish. As you might expect, the glitter resulted in a looser, slightly chunkier texture and was the culprit of some fall out over time. For as glittery as it was, though, I think it held on and applied well, and the underlying base color was very pigmented, which helped it look better on the lid over time. It wore for nine hours with some fall out. Dior Constellation (864) #2 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Snow Flurry (LE, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar).

CoverGirl Ashen Glow Flame (335) (P, $7.99) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (80% similar). MAC Arctic Grey (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, more muted (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Glitz is a light, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The pigmentation was fantastic, while the texture was smooth, dense, and lightly creamy. It applied easily to the lid, and it blended out without issue. I noticed signs of fading after eight and a half hours of wear. Zoeva Handmade (P) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Twinkle is a light-medium lavender with subtle, cooler undertones and a frosted finish. It had great pigmentation that applied well to bare skin as the consistency was smooth, blendable, and dense without being too thick or too heavy.

Volt is a medium, plummy purple with warmer, brown undertones and cooler, silvery shimmer. It had rich color payoff with a smooth, lightly blendable texture that was soft but creamy, so it applied well to bare skin and retained its intensity when blended.

Synergy is a medium-dark, golden brown with warm, orange and brown undertones and a subtle, metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a very smooth, dense, and creamy consistency that was easy to work with. The color applied smoothly and blended out well on bare skin. This shade wore well for nine hours on me (a little longer than it did as a single). This shade is the only repromote, as it is part of the permanent range.

Flash is a bright, medium-dark gold with strong, warm undertones–very orangey–and a soft, pearly shimmer finish. The color payoff was good, but the texture was slightly thinner and drier to the touch compared to other Metal Crush shades in the palette. It still applied well, and I didn’t have any real issues working with it, but I noticed some of the shimmer pulled away from the base when I tried to blend it while the color didn’t move as much. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading on me. Makeup Geek Gold Digger (P, $6.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Milani Bella Gold (22) (P, $4.49) is more shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Summerfly (P) is lighter (95% similar). Makeup Geek Untamed (P, $9.99) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Bronze Dunes #5 (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Linen is a stark white with cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a soft, silky texture that was also a bit dusty and prone to sheering out. It lasted for seven and a half hours before fading. Urban Decay Bump (LE, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). Sugarpill Tako (P, $12.00) is more muted (95% similar). Bobbi Brown White (LE, $22.00) is more muted (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M126 Chalk (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). Viseart Chroma #1 (P) is more muted (95% similar).

Jet is a dark black with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a soft, blendable consistency that wasn’t too soft or too firm. It wore well for eight hours on me. Laura Mercier Noir (P, $23.00) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Cookies and Cream (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Anastasia Noir (P, $12.00) is warmer (95% similar). Guerlain L'Heure de Nuit #5 (P) is warmer (95% similar). Guerlain Crazy Paris #6 (LE) is warmer (95% similar).

Velour is a bright, medium-dark blue with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage, though not fully opaque, that was buildable on the lid. The texture was soft, lightly dusty, and thinner, so it didn’t apply as evenly or blend out as easily as one would like. It wore well for eight hours before fading. Illamasqua Sadist (P) is lighter (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Unabashed Eyeshadow #3 (LE) is darker (95% similar). NARS Outremer (P, $25.00) is darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #159 (DC, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Dynamic Duo 2 #2 (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Royale (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Inglot #388 (P, $6.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Zinc Blue (P, $16.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Stone is a muted, medium-dark gray with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was decent to good, and I felt like it was buildable to mostly opaque color on the lid, but you would need a primer to get you there, as the dustier, thinner texture made it more prone to sheering out on bare skin. The color blended out without a lot of work but required extra effort compared to really great matte formulas. I noticed fading after seven and a half hours of wear. Laura Mercier Steel (LE, $23.00) is cooler (95% similar). NARS L'Amour, Toujours L'Amour #4 (LE, $25.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Nehru (DC, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). Kat Von D Smoke (Define) (P) is darker, cooler (95% similar). MAC Typographic (P, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). NARS Transvaal (P, $25.00) is glossier (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Ice Queen #4 (P) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Soot (DC, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Moss is a muted, medium-dark green with very subtle warm undertones and a matte finish. It had fantastic pigmentation with a smooth, silky texture that applied beautifully to skin. It blended out easily but still retained its depth and opacity where it was needed. This shade wore for eight hours on me. Sleek MakeUP Tree of Life (P, $9.99) is more shimmery (95% similar). Inglot #333 (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Inglot #331 (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Ribbon is a muted, dark purple with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a powdery texture that was finely-milled but harder to use, as it sheered out easily and was hard to layer. I would use this one with a primer, as it was much improved over one when I tried it. Without it, it’s a color that would be better suited for crease work or to darken/mute other shades. The eyeshadow started to fade after seven and a half hours. Smashbox Orchid (LE) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Indian Ink (P, $16.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Mulberry (LE, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Faded (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Kat Von D Venom (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Anastasia Violet (P, $12.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Silk is a medium-dark, purple-mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The pigmentation was very good, but the texture was dustier and a bit thin, so it sheered out very easily on the skin and was hard to keep it opaque without a good primer underneath. It showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours of wear. Colour Pop Tang (LE, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). LORAC Violet Gray (LE, $19.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Makeup Geek Petal Pusher (P, $6.00) is lighter (80% similar). Guerlain Rose Barbare #3 (P) is lighter (80% similar). Urban Decay Nooner (P, $19.00) is warmer (80% similar). LORAC Dusty Mauve (LE, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Ciate Jet Setter (LE) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Fringe is a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage paired with a lightly dusty texture that blended out easily. This shade seemed to have a stronger white base to it, so it might look chalky on some skin tones. The color wore well for seven and a half hours on me. Urban Decay Reflection (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Makeup Geek Beaches and Cream (P, $6.00) is warmer (95% similar). Natasha Denona Vega (111CM) (P) is darker (90% similar). Laura Mercier Ginger (P, $23.00) is lighter (90% similar). Viseart Minx #1 (P) is lighter (85% similar). Anastasia Soft Peach (P, $12.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay ABC Gum (P, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar). Too Faced Lace Teddy (P, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Feather is a soft, light-medium yellow with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. The color payoff was mostly opaque, but it had such a powdery, dusty texture that it sheered out so easily that I could not get it to look true-to-pan at all. Regular primer was not enough to help it bind and stay together, so I’d recommend using it with a lightly tacky or creamy base. Wet 'n' Wild A Regular at the Factory #1 (LE, $2.29) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Bright Yellow (DC, $16.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Hello (DC, $5.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Sephora Puppy Love (LE) is more muted (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Oak is a medium-dark, olive brown with soft, warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was a touch firmer in the pan, but it wasn’t actually firm or difficult to get the product out of it. It had intense, opaque color payoff, and the powder applied well to bare skin. It blended out with just a little extra effort required, but it wore for eight and a half hours, which made it one of the better-wearing matte eyeshadows in the palette. theBalm Woodie (LE, $16.00) is lighter, more muted (95% similar). Tarte Dreamer (LE) is cooler (95% similar). Giorgio Armani Taupe Smoke (19) (P, $39.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Eiffel for You (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Anastasia Ash Brown (P, $12.00) is darker (95% similar). Hourglass Obscura #2 (P) is darker (95% similar). Lancome Couture (P, $19.00) is lighter, less pigmented (95% similar). MAC Deep Brown (P, $21.00) is cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Faint (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Becca Ombre Nudes #4 (P) is lighter (90% similar). Buxom Big Spender (P, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Viseart Cashmere #2 (P) is lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Suede is a darker beige-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation with a lightly dusty, but was blendable, consistency that sheered out a bit when applied to bare skin. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading on me. Too Faced Jingle All the Way Eyeshadow #11 (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Fab Accent (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). LORAC Black #3 (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals Daydream (LE) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Bone is a very light, brighter beige with a semi-matte finish. This one seemed to be more satin-like in finish, though it was still rather flat/matte on the skin unless really buffed out. The texture was silky to the touch, smooth, and blendable, but it was soft enough to kick up excess powder in the pan and fall out during application if I wasn’t careful. This is the one shade that I think could have been replaced with another shade, as there is already a very light (white) shade in the palette. This shade started to fade after seven and a half hours on me. Sephora Put a Bow On It (LE) is more muted (95% similar). L'Oreal Paris Beach (P, $5.99) is lighter (95% similar). Too Faced Glaze (LE, $16.00) is more muted (95% similar). Makeup Atelier Nude #1 (P) is warmer (95% similar). NARS Give In Take IV (LE, $29.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). bareMinerals Chance (P) is darker, more muted, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Frosty Nog (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). IT Cosmetics Peaceful (P) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Velvet is a muted, dark burgundy with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, while the consistency was more powdery and had a tendency to apply unevenly on bare skin. The color blended fine over a primer, but it was harder to diffuse and blend out on bare skin as it would stick to one area and not want to budge. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me. NARS Indes Galantes (Right) (LE, $25.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Too Faced Charming (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Deep Damson (P, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). LORAC Eggplant (LE, $19.00) is cooler (90% similar). Anastasia Beauty Mark (P, $12.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Sneak Peek: Kat Von D MetalMatte Palette Photos & Swatches

Kat Von D MetalMatte Palette
Kat Von D MetalMatte Palette

Kat Von D MetalMatte Palette ($60.00 for 1.32 oz.) includes 22 eyeshadows–each one a whopping 0.06 oz.!–that are split into two finishes: Metal Crush(top row) and matte (bottom row). The palette is massive; it is easily the widest palette I’ve seen, though it is fairly slim. I’m pretty sure that for every palette I review, I swatch two more… so what’s another set of swatches while I keep trying to work through that pile o’ palettes? :)

P.S. — Synergy is available permanently, which is why the photo is pulling an individual compact, but it is also included in the palette.
