My apologies, once again, for the radio silence. Blogging is kind of a chore when you don’t have a desk in your room. Something about sitting up straight makes me write better — plus that would mean I have to unplug from Netflix. Anyway…
My latest obsession is long wear liquid lipstick. Highly specific. I’ve tried Anastasia Beverley Hills and loved it as well as some drug store brands that ended up peeling off, which is not ideal. But the numero uno long wear liquid lipstick in my opinion is Kat Von D Beauty’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick.
I’m always hesitant to buy any product with celebrity branding because I just feel like they are trying to make a quick buck from their fanbase — but this line is seriously quality. I’m obsessed with all of it because it’s all my aesthetic and actually works as advertised.
At first I wandered into Sephora and bought the brick red “Outlaw” to try it out. The lipstick is smooth and easy to apply, not goopy like Stila’s version. After drying it maintains a vivid matte look for hours!
It truly actually stays on and maintains crisp lines. I wore the pink “Berlin” for an entire day of running around New York City in 95 degree heat and all of my makeup melted off…but the lipstick!
Since then I’ve added several more shades to my collection and crave the whole set. I also love the shade names because I have a deep appreciation for dark stuff and goth culture (though my mall goth days are behind me). Thus far I have “Berlin,” “Outlaw,” “Bauhau5,” “Exorcism,” and “Susperia.”
The line is exclusive to Sephora so you have to drop into a store or shop online (though I doubt that would be a problem for the beauty obsessed). They are $20 each which is reasonable, in my opinion. Get shopping! Next on my list is “Lolita” and “Ayesha.”
