Kat Von D Berlin Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
Kat Von D Berlin Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($19.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “warm rose.” It’s a vibrant, medium-dark pink-red with warm undertones and an ultra-matte finish. Lipstick Queen Play It (P, $50.00) is glossier, cooler-toned, darker. MAC Good Kisser (LE, $16.00) is lighter, pinker. Too Faced Melted Candy (P, $21.00) is glossier, cooler-toned. Guerlain Rose Grenat (864) (LE, $51.00) is cooler-toned,m glossier. YSL Rose Asarine (34) (P, $34.00) is glossier. Bite Beauty Crianza (P, $28.00) is cooler-toned, glossier. Revlon Vivacious (120) (P, $8.99) is glossier. MAC Impassioned (P, $16.00) is not quite as matte. Guerlain Girly (P, $51.00) is glossier, pinker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
It has a thin consistency that spreads well across the lips, and it’s important to apply in a very smooth, even layer in order to get the best coverage and end result. The color dries down fairly quickly to a totally matte finish–no shine at all–and locks onto lips. There’s very little transfer, and I get almost no transfer until I’ve eaten something with the formula on (then it is less durable). It does cling to lips, though it is a lot less clingy (and more comfortable to wear, as a result) than most liquid lipsticks that dry down like this. The color lasted easily for eight hours, and it started to feel drying after four to five hours of wear.
