Hilda

Kat Von D Hilda Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. The consistency was creamy, a little thicker than other shades, and it applied easily and evenly with intense, opaque coverage in one stroke. I loved the way it felt and applied, but the dry down didn’t appear as forgiving on the lips and looked a bit dry and “cracked” when I smiled. It wore well for seven and a half hours and was lightly drying after five 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!

Julia

Kat Von D Julia Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had good color coverage, though it wasn’t opaque in one layer. The texture was thinner and felt a bit watery compared to the other shades in the formula, and it did not apply as well either–there were slight streaks (even after it dried down) and wasn’t as easy to control overall. It lasted for seven hours and started to feel drying to me after five hours of wear.

I was hoping that hilda would perform a little better because I absolutely love it. It looks super similar to the 1993 by UD that’s my go-to for a daily look and I was hoping that I could switch to this as I am enamored with the ELL formula. Five hours is pretty good, though. I might still give it a whack.

Sephora’s site describes Hilda as a “terra cota brick.” Curious as to how similar it is to Anastasia’s “Ashton?” It’s a beautiful color!

I think these two look fantastic. They are just my shades and as far as I’m concerned, the more matte the better. Plus the boxes have their adorable portraits on them! It’s a wonderful cause and I’m happy to get these.
