Kat Von D Bruno Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a vibrant, deep cobalt blue with cool undertones and a fine, metallic shimmer strewn throughout the lipstick. It had opaque color coverage in one layer. The consistency was smooth, thin without being watery, and it dried down quickly but gave me enough time to maneuver along the edges and go back to spread out the product in places. It dried down comfortably and did not feel clingy nor did it emphasize the texture of my lips. On me, the color stayed on well for nine hours and was slightly drying after six hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.22 oz. - $90.91 Per Ounce

It 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!

Magnetic Attraction

Tom Ford Beauty Magnetic Attraction Lip Color ($54.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly across the lips. With the lightly glossy finish, it appeared translucent and more like a lip stain than a lipstick on the lips. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy, and thin with moderate slip. I was surprised that it didn’t pull heavily into my lip lines. It wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$54.00/0.10 oz. - $540.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed have an "ultra-creamy texture" with "smooth application" that will deliver "pure color." The lipstick tends to have semi-opaque to opaque coverage with a natural to luminous finish with some shades with very fine pearl and others with more metallic shimmer. The consistency is typically creamy, lightweight, and has moderate slip, which makes it comfortable to wear and to apply but is not the most long-lasting lipstick formula. The wear tends to range between four and six hours with some shades performing above and below that range. There's a vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Pat McGrath Attitude LuxeTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, rosy undertones and a cream finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, creamy texture that was a bit emollient compared to the average shade in the formula. I didn’t have any issues applying it, though, and the color still adhered well to the lips for long-wear (six hours). The formula felt hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.14 oz. - $271.43 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "intense color payoff" with "comfort" and "rich hydration" that has a "satiny sheen." Of the shades I've tried, they are richly pigmented, long-wearing, incredibly comfortable to wear from start to finish, hydrating, and generally flattering on the lips. The texture was smooth, velvety, and creamy enough to glide across the lips with ease but never felt slippery or too clingy. Most shades performed exceptionally well, and while pricey, they at least lived up to a lot of the claims. There was no discernible scent or taste.

Love Crime

Tom Ford Beauty Love Crime Lip Color ($54.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium berry with subtle, cool undertones and a soft sheen. It had good color coverage in a single layer, though it wasn’t quite opaque. The coverage was even, though, so it had a very flattering look on on my lips as my lip lines appeared more smoothed out. This shade stayed on well for five hours and was lightly hydrating while worn.

Pat McGrath 35MM LuxeTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation–just shy of full coverage–with a creamy, smooth consistency that felt a bit thinner and more emollient than other shades in the range. The majority of the shades in the formula apply well and look flattering on my lips, but I felt that this one was more prone to gathering in my lip lines, though it wasn’t too noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The color stayed on well for seven hours and was hydrating.

Dressed to Kill

Tom Ford Beauty Dressed to Kill Lip Color ($54.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a bright, medium red with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. The consistency was smooth, almost silky, and thin without being too thin, which gave it a more natural appearance on the lips–almost like a lip stain–when paired with the soft sheen it had. The pigmentation was nearly opaque and lasted for five hours. It felt lightly hydrating overall.
