Saint

Kat Von D The Saint Everlasting Flash Lip Set ($38.00 for 0.29 oz.) is a limited edition set that was available for 48 hours. Now, normally the Everlasting sets seem to be a way to preview shades that will be released in full later on, but per the brand’s Facebook, they stated it was “an exclusive shade that won’t be available after the flash sale is over.” It seems bizarre, since the set was to celebrate the relaunch of the brand’s Saint and Sinner fragrances, and it would seem fitting to have coordinating liquid lipsticks. I thought it was going to come back, so I tested it as soon as my order arrived, but I guess this post just serves to provide dupes…

The set also came with samples of Saint and Sinner fragrances, but I’ve excluded them from the set for review purposes (fragrance doesn’t get rated on a rubric like lip colors are!).

Saint

Saint (Everlasting Liquid Lipstick) is a brighter, medium pink with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly but a bit of product pulled into my lip lines as it was drying down. I suspect the runnier quality of the formula made it more prone to pooling in my lines, and it did seem to take longer to dry down than the average shade in this formula. It lasted for seven hours and was non-drying.

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!

Saint

Saint (Everlasting Lip Liner) is a medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was creamy and smooth, and despite being a twist-up liner, it was pretty comfortable to apply all over the lips as well as getting sharp edges for just lining along the lips (rather than filling in). The liner seemed to be warmer and not as bright compared to the liquid lipstick. It did emphasize imperfections on my lips a bit, but it went on quite evenly and lasted for five hours. I noticed that it seemed to shorten the wear of the liquid lipstick when I wore it under–instead of seven hours it was noticeably more faded after six hours of wear. Oh, and no, it was nowhere close to the 24-hour wear promised by this formula.

Formula Overview

$18.00/0.01 oz. - $1800.00 Per Ounce

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.

Mine appear closer just swatched but definitely not on – I don’t know if it’s just how matte/opaque it appears on the lips (I took the swatch photo after five minutes, and it still was a bit wet along the edges, which is unusual for KVD), but it was noticeably brighter and less yellowy to me.

Mine was fine (matching) on and I didn’t notice an extended dry time so it has to be batch issues. The ones you got sound very different. Most likely a good thing she didn’t make it permanent (yet) if there’s production issues. I think many would be disappointed! It’s baffling how these bigger brands seem to continually run varying batches. (I would have LOVED to have gotten your Lolita and your UD Relish!)

Drat! I didn’t realize it wouldn’t be available after the flash sale- must have missed that detail. Thank you for the dupes!

Meh, they said that about Serpentina. Then a year later…it’s back…

I mean really who only sells a product for 48-hours? Nobody, or they’re selling snake oil. Seems more like a test-the-market first-run batch no matter what the soc says.

I don’t think Serpentina was fully brought back – they probably just found extras or stores sent back unsold palettes and they released the rest online. It definitely did not feel like they did a re-release of it from what I remember!

What a shame that this was a “48 hours only” deal! Especially since this is that *perfect* warmer pink that looks flattering against my olive skintone! Hoping she resurrects this beauty down the road.

Drat, the only reason I didn’t get this is because their online swatches looked pretty similar to a Double Dare (come to see it’s not similar at all!). Now I wish I had gotten it. Oh well, it’s not like I don’t have a zillion other lipsticks! Besides, the lipliner would have gotten no use anyway.

I had this in my basket (and I actually really enjoy the scent, which I got a sample of, though it does not last very long on the skin) but didn’t pull the trigger. It’s a lot more like a baby pink so I’m glad I passed.

That liquid lipstick shade looks so beautiful! I can see how it will look great on pale girls like me. Definitely will be including this liquid lipstick into my wish list!

When I read it’s not available after.. my first thought was ‘it must not be any good then’

Stupid marketing IMO.

I don’t really like the finishes of this lip set – there is something off about them. But then the shade isn’t something I would wear either.

Personal differences aside, I was willing to give the brand another go (I have very mixed feelings when it comes to “boycotting”…), but this really turns me off. The real kicker is the fact that she goes on and on about going vegan, supporting vegan/CF brands, how every little change helps, etc…, yet how many people are going to miss out…? Newbies are going to be turned off, especially if they think this is how the brand operates; longtime supporters are going to feel unappreciated. A lot of her base doesn’t necessarily have extra money laying around, so they have to save (or she goes on a rant about having her “art stolen” by cheaper brands), then she turns around and releases not one, buy TWO “extremely LE” products right before another LE palette… Then there was her post about NARS, who at least makes their products available. There are people who don’t care about a brands “ethics”, so all she’s doing is pushing people to NARS, MAC (who actually had to drop prices big time in order to compete…), or other brands that sell in China, as that seems to be a direction many are going.

I wasn’t interested in this shade (or the liquid lipstick formula, I’m over sandpaper lips), but it’s so weird to me that they would release it for such a limited time. I get putting out a little stock as a test run, especially because it’ll make people who wanted it and didn’t get it want it more, but for the life of me I cannot fathom only releasing a product for such a limited time and never bringing it back afterwards, especially because like you said, Christine, it makes sense to have a shade that coordinates with one of their relaunched fragrances. On one hand, I hope it comes back so those who wanted it can get their hands on it, but on the other if it does that seems like shady marketing meant to create false scarcity, and it always angers me when a brand does that. They sort of worked themselves into a corner with this one.

Yeah, it just doesn’t seem like THIS should be a shade you’d go all-in on the LE strategy with. It’s a more wearable shade and named after what’s going to be an ongoing, core fragrance? Just seems so weird to me.

How odd, this shade looks so much darker on me. It’s more peachy and muted than on you. I also didn’t find much difference between the liner and the liquid lipstick. I love the set but I did find that the liner shortened the wear time of the liquid lipstick a bit. I think I got the better batch! 🙂

I just received this in the mail and wish I would have passed on it. The shade is a little to bright and pink for my skin tone. Lesson learned about going off of the colors on Instagram.

I got this set on Monday and I love the colour, it’s less bright/vibrant compared to other shades in her line that I have. I found the lip liner looks lighter on the lips as well but warmer on my skin compared to the Liquid lipstick.

My Liquid Lipstick also didn’t seem that thin but it was slightly thinner compared to some of the other shades in the past. The brand has been doing a few of these flash sale products apparently on the app in the US, this is the first one I’ve seen in Canada as well.

I can totally see it fitting in her range with the rest of the shades – no idea why they’d want to make it ultra LE.

Really glad I didn’t get this – the colour is very different from how it was described/pictured on Sephora and the KVD site. It was depicted as being a medium/deep peachy nude, but this bright pink is WAY off! I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a drastic difference between the promo swatch and an IRL swatch. Wow!

My experience was the same as your’s, Christina. I immediately noticed the colour difference between the liner and the liquid lipstick. This wasn’t a fave of mine.
