Kat Von D Satellite Everlasting Lip LinerKat Von D Satellite Everlasting Lip Liner ($18.00 for 0.009 oz.) is a bright, medium blue with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color coverage in a single pass, though it was harder to get really even, opaque coverage when I tried to fill in both my upper and lower lips with the pencil. I noticed that while it had felt creamy on the very first use, the outer edge dried out a bit for the next use (even though I put the cap back on!) so I had to get through that layer before it felt creamy again. There isn't a lot of product in the tube (most twist-up liners have similar amounts of product), so wasting any is less than ideal! The color applied with moderate unevenness, but I was able to press my lips together and minimize some of it. It started to break down after seven and a half hours of wear, and as soon as I ate, over half of it came off (not a particularly greasy meal). The upside was that the formula was lightweight and non-drying.
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.
