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.

Kat Von D Lovesick Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “mauve nude.” It’s a muted, medium-dark pinky-plum with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had fairly opaque pigmentation, though there was a hint of the natural lip color coming through. The color applied evenly, though, and was easy to work with. The texture was lightweight, comfortable to wear for the first five hours, and then drying for the next few (total wear of seven hours). Maybelline Blushing Pout (P, $7.99) is lighter. Kat Von D Melancholia (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer. Maybelline Ravishing Rose (P, $7.99) is lighter, brighter. Maybelline Lust for Blush (P, $7.99) is darker, warmer. NARS Anna (P, $32.00) is warmer. MAC Nouvelle Vogue (LE, $16.00) is brighter, warmer. MAC Steady Going (P, $16.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) 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!

I can’t wait for this trend to be over, everybody and their mother are releasing liquid matte lipsticks and I have the driest lips ever. lol 🙂

Lovesick is gorgeous, but I already know that liquid mattes will kill my lips because it’s always so dry here and I am one of those people who licks their lips whenever they feel too dry. Ok, so now I *know* that I must have Nars Anna after seeing it compared to Lovesick! I love this shade of light, well light for me anyway, pinky-rosy-mauvey color.

Am I the only one getting tired of matte finish lipsticks? I’m not a high-gloss girl, either, but I think I’m ready for satiny more natural finish lipsticks.

I thought I didn’t need any more pinks in my collection, but then I saw your swatch for Lovesick and went “aw, crud”. Guess I’ll be playing with that on my next Sephora run…

I love the way these look on you, Christine! Lovesick is so pretty but… all you need to do is mention the word “drying” and I’m running in the opposite direction! It seems that all of the long-lasting, liquid lipsticks are drying to some extent. I’m going to wait and see if someone figures out a way to make them moisturizing. =)

My best advice is to try patting a little lip balm on before and later on when it feels a little drying, but yeah, they tend to be drying 🙁

Oh..Lovesick makes me wish I could tolerate this formula a little better! It looks so pretty on you Christine! I have Blushing Pout and Nars Anna. I know if I bought it, I would never wear it, so I’m going to resist the urge and save my $ for the tons of other stuff on my wish list!

Lovesick looks gorgeous on you! I’m so glad – we have similar skin tones so I was worried it might pull too cool-toned. Definitely putting it on my wishlist (:

Which one should I buy? I’m an nc15 skin tone..that I’ve been told I have pink undertones. I need a pink lipstick that I can wear besides kvd outlaw.

It pulls more toward purple on me though. I got it and idk about the color. I’d like something that looks like more like MACs Angel lipstick but in a liquid lipstick formula..
