Kat Von D Melancholia & Lovesick Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks

Kat Von D Melancholia Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “rose blush.” It’s a brightened, light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had rich, opaque color payoff that went on smoothly and evenly, which was a nice surprise. The texture was soft, dried down quickly enough not to feel like it took forever to dry but gave you enough time to work with it to get crisp edges. It lasted for six and a half hours on me with light fading along the center of the lips but not enough to be jarring. It felt a bit drying after five hours of wear. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Tease (03) (P, $50.00) is warmer, glossier. Colour Pop 1st Base (P, $6.00) is darker. Colour Pop Fetch (P, $5.00) is darker, brighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Pow (600) (P, $28.00) is darker, glossier. Too Faced Melted Peony (P, $21.00) is warmer, glossier. MAC Sweet Experience (LE, $16.00) is lighter, glossier. Kat Von D Lovesick (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Estee Lauder Shameless Violet, Stronger, Unattainable Matte Sculpting Lipsticks

Estee lauder Pure Color Matte Sculpting Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new formula that features “rich saturated color” with a matte finish that is “luxuriously comfortable.” I bought three to try out the formula, and this post features those three. The formula is comfortable to wear with a light-medium weight consistency that is creamy and smooth with good pigmentation, though some shades are more pigmented than others. They’re more semi-matte to satin with none of the three I tried having a really flat, matte finish (like a liquid lipstick), so keep that in mind on whether it aligns with your preference for mattes. All three shades were easy to apply, comfortable to wear, and long-wearing. They reminded me of formulas like MAC’s newer Mattes, Urban Decay Matte Revolution, and NARS Audacious.
