Coven

Kat Von D Coven Everlasting Lip LinerKat Von D Coven Everlasting Lip Liner ($18.00 for 0.009 oz.) is a brighter, medium lavender with subtle, cooler undertones and a matte finish. It had good pigmentation in a single stroke, but the fine tip and the thinner texture made it hard to apply evenly and opaquely across my lips as a standalone shade. It would work fine for lining the edges, but I had a lot of trouble getting it to adhere and apply to the center of my lips. The texture was lightly creamy but still pulled on my lips a bit as I used it. The color lasted nowhere near 24 hours; it had started to break down noticeably after six hours of wear. It was darker than the Coven Studded Kiss Lipstick.

The Everlasting Lip Liner is supposed to have “24-hour wear” with “water-resistant wear and weightless color” that has the “ultimate pigmentation.” It was created to be paired with Kat Von D’s liquid and regular lipstick ranges but also “worn on its own.” The formula has been fairly creamy, which made it easy to line the edges of my lips, but the skinnier pencil made it less practical for really filling in the lips. I also felt like that, while creamy, some shades still skipped when I attempted to fill in my lips. The texture was more of a soft matte initially, which enabled me to press my lips together and even out some of the product before it fully dried down. It was water-resistant, and I had no trouble drinking water or coffee, but I’ve yet to try one that actually made it through a meal particularly well–they all wore substantially away from the center of the lips and turn patchy by the end of a meal. The Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks tend to wear longer on me, actually. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating. Some were more wearable (in terms of evenness) on their own than others.

Roxy

Kat Von D Roxy Everlasting Lip LinerKat Von D Roxy Everlasting Lip Liner ($18.00 for 0.009 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark purple with cooler undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had medium, buildable color coverage, but the lip liner was almost as patchy as the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick of the same name (which is very similar in color). The lip liner had a tendency to skip, drag a little, and bunch up (where layering resulted in greater unevenness as the product was thicker in places) as I tried to fill in my lips with the pencil. It was decent for lining the edges, but the lack of opacity made the edges appear pinker and less purple, so I didn’t feel like it was giving really crisp, true-to-color edges either. On its own, the lip liner lasted for seven and a half hours–it just did not make it through my first meal at all but held up fine to water and coffee. The formula was a little drying after six hours of wear.

I don’t understand why any brand would put a 24 hour wear claim on a lip product (or any makeup product but especially not a lip product I mean come on).

Also the patchiness and trouble filling in the whole lip makes me sad, as I always use a primer and fill in my lips with a pencil to even out my lip texture.

I decided against buying Lemmy during the 15% off sale. I’m going to pick up the green NYX lip pencil next time I order from ulta instead.

I feel like it’s there to be like, “Hey! I’m SUPER, SUPER long-wearing! No, I mean it, I’m SUPER long-wearing!” 24 hours just seems silly – there are absolutely some people who might need it (I initially thought about some doctors who work incredibly long shifts and then have days off at a time), but it’s still just a very lofty claim to make. And as you said, for a lip product, if it’s going to last 24 hours – that’s at least two meals, if not three, plus routine drinking (and/or snacking, depending on one’s eating habits) – that is a very, very tall order given the lip liner still needs to be removable when you want to get it off, LOL!

🙁 No, not the purples again!!! So sad 🙁 I ordered the pinky purple, L.U.V., supposed to come today, hoping it swatches ok. For Roxy, NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner in Amethyst is close in color, but it’s a harder, drier pencil, so only good for outlining the lips, but it’s much cheaper, and I don’t mind a drier pencil for outlining, as purple lippies tend to be slippery suckers!

Nope. And nope. Beautiful shades, but that formula leaves much to be desired. I’m thinking that Nyx may have a dupe or two in their new edgier shades they released recently. I’ve never had any issues with theirs or UD’s lip liners.

I wouldn’t be surprised if NYX had some dupes!

UD’s lip pencils are definitely much waxier, so they glide a bit more, though I have found that they can be less pigmented in one stroke/line – in a way, better for filling in but not as sharp/defining for edges compared to twist-ups!

I’ll be getting roxy in the ELL formula, and I’m hoping to get Poe in this formula!!

But I gotta say the fact that these lip liners can’t last through a meal, is pretty disappointing to me. I do want Poe still though, just for crisp edges with the lipstick.

(>_>) Boo…
I have a dozen of these in my cart right now (trying to whittle down). They are, however, all from the neutrals and reds range. Do you find they perform better? Have you compared performance under lipstick?
I use liners to (very slightly) over line and either fill in or blend into my lips. I then apply lipstick on top.
Wasn’t expecting 24 hrs. (bah), but was hoping for a really long wearing and budge proof formula.

What lip liner have you found to be most opaque and long lasting? I’ve had pretty good wear from UD 24/7 & Charlotte Tilbury lip cheat.

It depends on the lipstick, I don’t think they help the ELLs at all. If you are trying to blend and fill in, I don’t think you will be enthused about this. Both UD and CT formulas are creamier – if you like that style, I’d skip these or else just get one shade!

I picked up Roxy with my Sephora sale purchase and even without the silly 24-hour claim it performed very poorly. And as a warning it also messed up how the ELL Roxy performed for me. Mind you, Roxy is not the most stellar ELL but it’s absurd that a lip liner applied beforehand lifted the liquid lip it’s intended to work with right off my lips. Such a shame as Coven and Roxy are both great colors (love the Coven SK formula). It wore in the center almost immediately, tugged for an extra annoying application experience, and just all-around did not do what a liner should. I definitely recommend the NYX liners over these (and most other liners in general since they’re a great price for a product I’d readily compare to MAC’s and in some cases out-perform MAC’s). Between those and OCC’s liners you’ll be able to find all the fun colors you need without getting dry, craggly, butthole-looking lips (sorry but you all know what I mean when a product is just not sitting right or layering well and makes your lips look parched and chapped). Disaster.

Also application just in terms of the liner itself was a pain due to the very tiny tip that retracts and wears down easily. This liner won’t last you. My bold-colored NYX and OCC pencils kick this line’s butt. Disappointing as I was so happy she was finally releasing complementary liners. But they’re duds. Even removing the 24-hour claim which so negatively impacts things this is not a good option for you colorful lip lovers like me.

I’m sad to hear that you had a similar experience, Celia! 🙁 If I’m remembering correctly, OG Lolita was the one shade that applied fairly well on its own but a lot of the more “unique” shades have not.

Yeah, I tested OG Lolita in store and would definitely consider picking that one up. Seems like the colors failed unfortunately. Thanks for the super helpful reviews as always, lovie <3!

After I read your Poe and Satellite reviews I watched a Utube swatch and review on JessicaHazeMUA’s channel.She is an Australian Utuber living in Detroit who has been on Kat Von D’s Utube channel doing videos with Kat’s recently debuted artistry collective artists.She gave the same opinion as you on colors like Roxy and Satellite.Saying they were slightly patchy and not as creamy as the others.She said making a true vegan blue like that is extremely difficult and super hard to formulate.I was impressed with her honesty(even though she kind of made the excuse that they are lip pencils and are supposed to used under a lipstick or another lip product)since she has been so close with the brand.I was interested because I wanted to see if she was going to tell the truth like you or lie because she is friendly with the brand.

I’m happy to hear that you found another person who gave an honest review! 🙂 I think OG Lolita, one of the few neutrals I picked up, applied better than most of the shades, so there might be hope for at least a few shades in the range.

OCC makes true vegan blue lip liners 🙂 I’d give them a try for those disappointed in how the bright colors performed here. They’re 100% CF/Vegan, certified, and make fantastic blues.
