Skully

Kat Von D Skully Everlasting Lip LinerKat Von D Skully Everlasting Lip Liner ($18.00 for 0.009 oz.) is a deep black with neutral undertones and a smattering of silver micro-sparkle over a matte finish. It had good color coverage in one pass, though it took two layers for full opacity. The texture was drier initially but became creamier as I used more of the product. It did not apply evenly, though it wasn’t the worst that I have tried in the range. The color stayed on for five and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating while worn.

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.

Lemmy

Kat Von D Lemmy Everlasting Lip LinerKat Von D Lemmy Everlasting Lip Liner ($18.00 for 0.009 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark forest green with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque coverage in a single layer, which was was somewhat buildable. The texture was slightly drier, and I had bits of the lip pencil crumble off as I was attempting to apply it all-over my lips. It applied decently, but I wasn’t able to fully even it out, despite trying to gently rub my lips together to blend out the color after I did the best I could with the liner itself. This shade started to fade heavily from the center after five and a half hours of wear and was non-drying.

Hey Christine, just FYI, the title mentions “Lolita” in it, even though there’s no Lolita shades swatched here. Thought it might’ve been a little mistake.

Oh no, scores are so low for this line 🙁 It seems some shades are ok for outlining lips, but terrible at filling them in. Do you think it makes sense to have 2 scores, one just for outlining and one for filling in?

I consider both aspects when rating the product since they mentioned it for both – I would not separate the two, however, since the rubric has to be applicable to a group of products. It would get really hard to manage 100s of different rubrics!

I wouldn’t recommend these even for just lining. They wear far too quickly. I’ve never run into a lip liner that wears this fast before. And the tip squishes down quickly as well so even just outer-lining becomes a chore. You’d be better off carefully lining with the complementary ELL shade than these sadly. They just don’t wear like liner should wear even as an edges-only line.

This is too bad, these could have been a really great matte lip product. I am going to steal your black lipstick + blue eyeliner look though!

I love the SHADE of these both. But the formula sounds like it’s not for me.

You look so beautiful, Expecially in the green face shot Christine!

The shade “Lemmy” failed its namesake.
And my hunt for a green, or better yet, teal-green, lip liner for my CP Crystal Ball lip gloss. I did see posts on IG that Bite has a green lip liner coming, though! And many other shades that I believe will do way better than these. ?

NYX has a green one called “Revolution” in their slide-on lip pencil line, and I’m going to buy it next time I stop in Ulta.

Christine, will you be testing these with the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick and/or Studded Kiss Lipsticks to gauge performance as liner paired with another product?

I did! They don’t add to the wear time with Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks and it varies with the Studded Kiss (some are more matte than others).

It’s such a shame that the colors in this line don’t seem to be living up to even the most basic of their claims. :/ Buying a liner like this only to outline lips is not enough bang for my buck, unfortunately.

I’ll say that with these twist-up types of liners, I feel like the value is only there if you use them for outlining – you’ll go through one so fast if you fill in!

Lack of wear is heartbreaking. I got Lolita 2 during the VIB sale. Tried for 1st time today. Color was outstanding, maybe more beautiful than my beloved Lolita 2 ELL. But the wear time!! Applied (as liner only – not fill in) at 7:30 am, was fading & patchy at by 9:40am, and was mostly gone by noon! And I wore it with the matching ELL, so it wasn’t like another product messed it up!

Sorry, my budget did not allow me to buy that many of them – I only purchased eight or so (I don’t remember the exact number!).
