Kat Von D Dagger Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark grayish blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation and would benefit from a second layer of product to ensure smooth, even, and opaque coverage. The texture was thin, very fluid, and spreadable but some color slipped into my lip lines--it just did not seem to apply as evenly or as flatteringly as a lot of the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks have for me. The color wore well for six and a half hours and was lightly drying after five hours of wear.
