Kat Von D Holiday 2016 Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Mini Set

Kat Von D Holiday 2016 Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Mini SetKat Von D Holiday 2016 Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Mini Set ($49.00 for 0.80 fl. oz.) includes eight miniature sized shades of liquid lipstick. The Everlasting Liquid Lipstick formula is supposed to be long-wearing, have full coverage, and be ultra-matte. In my experience, most shades are pigmented, apply well, and wear all day long. Some shades are slightly drying to moderately drying, but they tend to fade evenly and are one of the most comfortable liquid lipstick formulas I’ve come across.

Six of the shades are from the existing, permanent shade line-up, while two (Plath and Roxy) are new. I had trouble applying two shades–Roxy and Echo–as they were sheerer, more watery, and ended up patchy and uneven on the lips. L.U.V. seemed a bit drier, almost powder-like, in its finish compared to the permanent version. I’m not sold on the set overall, but if you tend to like liquid lipsticks (or in particular, Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks) and take awhile to finish shades, I think these are sized right that you get enough product for many uses but will be able to finish them, too.

Mother is a medium-dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It was very nearly opaque in a single layer, and the color spread evenly across the lips and did not turn patchy or uneven. The color didn’t emphasize my lip lines or “crack” when I smiled, as the formula felt flexible on but still transfer-proof. It wore well for seven and a half hours on me and was slightly drying overall. KVD Beauty Mother (DC, $21.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (95% similar).

Plath is a dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was richly pigmented and covered the lips with opaque, even coverage. The texture was less flexible to me after it had dried down, and it seemed prone to emphasizing the natural texture of my lips. The color lasted for almost eight hours and was drying after six hours of wear. ColourPop Love Bug (P, $6.50) is more muted (85% similar). Milani Crush (LE, $8.99) is warmer (95% similar).

Backstage Bambi is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage and felt more watery when I was applying it. The color had some visible streaking, even after it dried (it didn’t self-level) and seemed a bit more matte than the permanent version I have. It wore well for six hours but faded somewhat unevenly and was a bit drying. MAC Flamboyish (LE, $20.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Radiant Rush (LE, $18.00) is glossier (90% similar). Anastasia Orchid (P, $18.00) is lighter, more muted (90% similar).

Santa Sangre is a bold, bright, medium orange-red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It was very nearly opaque in one layer (a second dab would definitely finish it off) that applied easily with smooth, even coverage. The consistency dried down and didn’t enhance lips but didn’t emphasize the natural texture either. On me, the color wore well for over seven hours and was just a touch drying after four and a half hours of wear. MAC Reddy to Go (P, $20.00) is cooler, glossier (90% similar).

L.U.V. is a bright, medium-dark purple with a matte finish and warmer, pink undertones. The color payoff was semi-opaque, but it was even, and it had a very dry, more powder-like matte finish. It did not seem as flexible or as forgiving as the permanent version to me, ase this one “cracked” slightly. It lasted for seven hours but faded unevenly starting from the center of the mouth and was moderately drying over time. ColourPop Drive In (LE, $6.50) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 (LE, $20.00) is lighter, glossier (95% similar). KVD Beauty L.U.V. (DC, $21.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Buxom Ultraviolet (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Roxy is a bold, dark purple with cool, blue undertones and matte finish. It was semi-sheer, moderately buildable up to medium coverage (two layers), and it had a thinner, more watery consistency. This thinness made it prone to applying unevenly and streaky. The more layers I tried, the worse it look, as it would be pigmented in places and still sheer in others. It lasted for seven hours, but it had a splotchy fade going on as the areas that it was sheerer faded away more noticeably first. My lips started to feel dry after four hours of wear. KVD Beauty Roxy (P, $18.00) is brighter (95% similar). KVD Beauty Roxy (P, $19.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Fenty Beauty Violet Fury (P, $18.00) is lighter, glossier (90% similar).

KVD Beauty Roxy (LE, $21.00) is lighter, glossier (85% similar). Anastasia Violet (LE, $20.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). MAC Lust Extract (LE, $20.00) is darker, glossier (80% similar). Melt Cosmetics Mariachi (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). Illamasqua ESP (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (80% similar). MAC Matte Royal (LE, $20.00) is cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Echo is a deep, muted navy blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff paired with a thinner texture that was prone to patchiness, though it didn’t seem as streaky as other thin shades. I also felt like it was a bit more pigmented and easier to apply than the permanent version, though they both were shades I struggled to apply overall. The color lasted for seven hours and was somewhat uneven in how it faded over time. It was drying after four and a half hours of wear. KVD Beauty Poe (P, $18.00) is more muted, cooler (90% similar). MAC Matte Royal (LE, $20.00) is brighter, cooler, glossier (85% similar). Too Faced Who's Zoomin' Who (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar).

Maybelline Midnight Blue (DC, $7.49) is more shimmery, darker, glossier (85% similar). Sephora Violet Vertigo (103) (P, $14.00) is brighter (80% similar).

Too bad about the purples, maybe a lip liner would help, but this could be a nice option for those who like a variety of colors and can’t finish a full size.

Roxy is such a beautiful color, it’s a shame it performs so poorly πŸ™

Can I say how happy it makes me to see how many dupes there are now for Echo? Just a couple years ago that wouldn’t have been the case! it warms my heart to see unconventional lip colors catch on.

HMMM I thought the purple and blue would perform better. The pinks are too bright for me πŸ™ and with the underperforming blue and purple theres no point for me to get this one. I was thinking about it so thanks for saving me from making a return trip.

No problem, Mo! Echo wasn’t great when it was released into the permanent range, but I had higher hopes for Roxy πŸ™

Almost bought this on impulse when I first saw it on Sephora. Glad I waited for your review, doesn’t seem worth it with many of the colors I’m interested in underperforming and too many pinks for my taste. Definitely reaffirmed my need for Santa Sangre though. And I’d be interested in Plath as well if it were made available separately.

They made it sound like Plath/Roxy were coming, but it wasn’t 100% clear. Sephora has, “including an exclusive preview of just-released shades, Plath and Roxy” in the description on their site – makes it kind of seem like they are going to be released? But like I said, unclear!

Yeah…. ROXY is very sheer formula which is a shame but I still found I could build it up without going too thick. and Echo still needs the same TLC as the full size. πŸ˜‰

Thanks for the review, Christine! This has been in my cart since it came out, but there are only a couple of colors that ended up looking like they would work for me. I’ve been really excited about this formula since I got a deluxe sample of Lolita II. I think I’m better off buying two or three full sizes in colors I know I would wear! The Metal Matte palette, on the other hand—your review for that one made me click the order button πŸ˜‰

No problem, Jaime! πŸ™‚

Yes, I’d say that it’s better to buy shades you’d wear vs. a set that is just a better “value” so-to-speak. There’s more value in a shade you’d use, wear, and finish!

When I saw that first photo I said to myself, well, I thought, “this I must have!”
Now, after reading the review, I can just say, Thank you Christine of saving money for me! Echo and Roxy was the star colours for me, along with Santa Sangre and I can buy that anytime.

I love the idea of this set, but it only took one look at the swatches to realize that I would never wear them. I find the Bite Lip Lab too drying to wear in practice and that is just ‘neither drying nor hydrating’!

Kat Von D in requiem was my first “luxury” makeup purchase, so I have a soft spot in my heart for the brand. But I’m not super impressed with the new colors or the texture lately. I’m satisfied by seeing your reviews instead of running to sephora to test now. πŸ™

Thought I would like these more than I do. Disappointed. Forgot whether the newbies would be perm or not. Plath is fine. No surprise in that, given my preferences. And it would save me from Birkin Brown…. For navy, I’d go maybelline, though squid ink is so marvelously complex…just would not get enough use to go higher end. Santa Sangre is great, but way overduped in stash. One of the best aspects of mini sets is the ability to access small sizes of less usual shades, but the purples underperform. The pinks look less wearable, swatched, for me, than I thought. I’m out. Money saved. Now the kvd shadows are a very different kettle of fish. Ordering tomorrow. I’ll deceive myself into thinking that metal/matte is 49$ less, by not getting these. Love inane rationalizations. If I put the thought into ‘deep things’ that I put into m/u, i’d be brilliant. I did explain to a coworker today that her problem with purple liners was prob carmine allergy and sent her a list of the culprit ingredients. So, overthinking this stuff isn’t all bad!

Here’s hoping that your coworker can figure out why purple eyeliners are a problem!

I wanted these to be better, because it’s a decent set, but I’m just not enthused when you have a shade as bad as Roxy in the set.

Overall I am very pleased with this set. I feel like Roxy was a big letdown for me as a standalone shade (mainly because I was SO SO excited for that gorgeous slightly blue toned purple) but even the shades that don’t perform well alone seem to do very well as support/ombre shades and all the colors play together nicely, which is an expectation I tend to carry for a brand product line. The shades that perform well perform VERY well, and the ones that don’t, at least, work well with those that do. Definitely worth the price tag considering there are more hits than misses and the misses aren’t terribly severe. (besides Roxy — man I had high hopes for her!!) Santa Sangre is my favorite shade on you, Christine — it looks like such a gorgeous bright tomato red!

Happy to hear it works well for layering/ombre lip looks. At least Roxy was more comfortable than ColourPop’s version, which was the closest dupe πŸ™

I would have been severely disappointed if the quality wasn’t there — I understand if it’s streaky or whatever (not really, actually — Roxy was terribly patchy) but if it was REALLY bad (cracking/flaking off the lips, etc) I would have returned the set. That’s what I meant really: that generally speaking, the formula isn’t bad — maybe just the pigmentation isn’t as opaque as I would have dreamed.

I’m not buying anymore liquid lipsticks. I notice I only wear the ones I have occasionally. And I always end up applying a gloss over them because they are so drying. They do last a long time though.

I understand, Denise! I am the same way – I only reach for a liquid lipstick that’s drying if I need 100% long-wearing color that is almost no maintenance.

I was so excited when this came out. I bought it immediately. I was so disappointed with the patchiness of roxy and echo. The pinks and red are too bright for me. I love Plath and the lightest pink, but 2 minis aren’t worth $50 so I returned it. I’m thinking of getting the Sephora favorites most coveted Trending set.

Whilst I love the brownie shade, I think they would end up making your lips feel dry. They certainly don’t look very comfortable on you Christine – I feel sorry for your lips.

I really want to try out this formula but these examples aren’t doing it for me. I’ll probably just choose one or two full-size shades I know I’ll wear. As a side note, I really like your eye makeup in these shots ☺️

I’m always intrigued by the ‘liquid lipstick’ concept. Isn’t that just another description of lip gloss? Seriously, though, what’s the difference?

I find that with Roxy and Echo I have to apply initially a thin layer to outline my lips then go in and pat pat pat a heavier amount on, not swiping, not closing my lips until it dries. It’s kind of a pain, but I get a really nice, flawless smooth look without the patchiness!! Trying to teach myself to not close my lips prematurely was quite difficult, but I find gently blowing out air onto my lips to speed the drying process keeps my lips occupied. πŸ˜€

This stuff is incredible. I picked one up for the first time yesterday, in the shade Santa Sangre. Gave it a test run by wearing it for a couple of hours and then sleeping on it. Woke up the next morning and it hadn’t budged (and I sleep on my stomach!) Non-drying, and that’s coming from a girl with some of the driest lips this side of the Equator. Gorgeous shade of red for my extremely pale, natural redhead skin (not overpowering in the least). This will be a daily wear for me. Way to go Kat von D!

Thanks, this review was so helpful! I have a few questions, though… how many one-layer applications of lipstick would you estimate are in each tube? And about how tall are the tubes? Thanks in advance πŸ™‚
