Kat Von D Thunderstruck Everlasting Glimmer Veil Liquid LipstickKat Von D Thunderstruck Everlasting Glimmer Veil Liquid Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a medium gold with warm, orange undertones and fine pink sparkle and larger gold glitter. It had semi-sheer coverage in a single layer, which was buildable semi-opaque coverage with a second layer (I felt a third layer started to feel thicker and uneven on the lips and was more prone to flaking off in chunks). The sheerer quality made it better for layering compared to some of the more pigmented shades in the range. This also had the least noticeable stain--slightly pinky but very subtle on my natural lip color. The texture was thin, almost watery, but it dried down quickly, though it could have applied a bit more evenly overall. It lasted for eight hours before fading too noticeably and needing a reapplication but did not feeling drying to me.
