Kat Von D Noble Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “petal pink nude.” It’s a brightened, light-medium peach with a hint of pink and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage, but it was one of the harder-to-apply shades in the range. It was sheerer and thinner, so it was prone to streaking, but the formula would allow for you to apply a second coat to get better coverage out of it (and probably minimize some of the streaking). The color lasted for almost six hours, but it had more noticeably faded from the center after four hours for me, so it doesn’t fade as evenly as you’d like (especially with a lighter/brighter shade such as this one). It was slightly drying after four hours of wear. Burberry Pink Apricot (301) (P, $30.00) is darker, glossier. Melt Cosmetics Summer! (P, $19.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. MAC Riot House (LE, $16.00) is lighter, brighter. Anastasia Pure Hollywood (P, $20.00) is cooler. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lament (P, $18.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier. Maybelline Daringly Nude (P, $7.99) is darker, more muted, less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Kat Von D Bow ‘n’ Arrow Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “fawn nude.” It’s a muted, medium-dark beige-brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and an ultra matte finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly. It was soft when dried, and it didn’t “crack” or look split down the lip lines after it dried down. The drying time was a little faster than many other shades I’ve tried from the formula. The color lasted for six and a half hours on me with little breakdown but was slightly drying after the fifth hour of wear. MAC Velvet Teddy (P, $16.00) is warmer, glossier. Burberry Antique Pink (303) (P, $30.00) is cooler, glossier. MAC Nude (LE, $16.00) is darker, glossier. MAC Whirl (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Stone (P, $16.00) is darker, cooler.

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 love Bow & Arrow on you!

Question: When you test lipsticks that are extra long wearing, do you avoid eating / eat extra-carefully / just eat normally? I’m guessing that when you test something that you expect to wear <4 hours, you just don't eat a full meal – but maybe I'm wrong. I find that most longwearing lipsticks last beautifully until I start eating, but are a mess (or at least significantly faded) after eating. So, I'm just curious as to how you handle that when testing.

Hi Emi,

Anything that lasts beyond 4-6 hours will probably go through a meal. Something like a liquid lipstick, I wear through meals for sure. I don’t NOT eat, because that would be unhealthy in the long run (so unfortunately, it’s not something I can do for testing), but for more typical products, then I apply early in the AM and then I have lunch after I’m done testing, same with after lunch and before dinner, and then after dinner. I’m usually up 6-7, so I do my first test then, and I have a 4-5 hour gap between lunch and dinner, then another 4-6 hour gap after dinner.

hi Christine!!I How close would you think Bow and Arrow to Colourpop Parker? as that one (parker) is my mlbb shade and I’m looking for a long wearing lipstick. Thanks! šŸ™‚
I look forward to your lipstick review/swatches in particular with the Kat von D! I’m eyeing a few shades as I trust that you said you favor this brand of liquid lipstick out of all the ones you tried. šŸ™‚

I was wondering if noble was close to Colourpop Vice but with the swatch search is definitely lighter.

I still want one of the two shades though as light mattes are so hard to find!!

What I find amazing is that I want Bow ā€˜nā€™ Arrow even more now, it’s not too brown and has enough roseiness to be wearable. Completely different than Colourpop Trap as well.

I’m wearing Bow n Arrow today! I love it so much. It’s been lasting better than the other shades I own (“bad batch” Lolita, Armageddon, and Ayesha). It lasts longer and fades less than the other three I have and it’s gorgeous! On myself, it kinda reminds me of Velvet Teddy but slightly browner and much more matte.

I think they were in some stores before they launched online, but I don’t know if/when/which stores will have what amount of stock.

I found mine in an in-store JCPenney Sephora, the regular Sephora was sold out! They weren’t on display but the sales associate grabbed a bunch of the new shades from a drawer. Hope that helps!

I’m not especially keen on liquid lipsticks, but Bow&arrow is too beautiful to pass up!!! I wish there were more dupes! (Especially non-liquid lipstick ones!)

I have had my eye on Bow “n” Arrow. It looks great on you! I have some form the initially released shades. I love them on for about 3 hours and then they just get uncomfortable for me and I have been putting BITE’s Opal lipstick over them. I have been making myself wear them more to try to decide if I am going to invest in some of the new shades. I’m not sure yet. I just don’t reach for them that much.
