What it does:
The Everlasting Liquid Lipstick provides creamy long-lasting wear & highly pigmented color. It glides on like gloss but leaves a bold, matte finish. It has natural comfort-enhancing ingredients, including vitamin E and sunflower seed. It's one of the most comfortable liquid lipstick formulas.
This is the most comfortable liquid lipstick I've ever worn. It glides on so smoothly, dries fairly quick & looks amazing once dry! My obsession started with "Exorcism" - I got it last fall and still wear it every chance I get; I mentioned it in my January Favorites! Although the color is so dark, it doesn't apply patchy & is very opaque with one application. When applying liquid lipsticks, they're meant to be applied 1x because they are very pigmented, full-coverage products. If you want to layer, it's best to do so once the first layer dries. I find when I do that it pretty much looks the same, so I'd say it isn't necessary with this brand.
I'd stalk my local Sephora for other colors, but they were always sold out, so I finally decided, why not order online? I got the coveted "Lolita" and I loved it too, I kept wondering why I'd waited so long on these! When I went back into Sephora, they had Bauhau5, so I picked that up, but still no luck on any of the other ones I had on my wish list, so I did a little online shopping again & got: "Outlaw, Lovesick & Bow N Arrow" -- I was so lucky when I did because "Bow N Arrow" is always sold out, both in stores and online, it's a beautiful nude lip on me, but can be not so nude on other complexions. I definitely plan on expanding my collection slowly, but I love all the shades I have at the moment & they're all very wearable!
If you read my review about my experience with L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss, you know I said, I don't mind paying $20 each for a product that WORKS like it's supposed to vs. a $5 lip product that can potentially harm your lips... In this case it's true, you get what you pay for. The benefit of shopping with Sephora is they have a rewards program & I always use Ebates when shopping online for added bonuses, Sephora usually offers 4-10% cashback on your purchases!

The product definitely is long-lasting & doesn't bleed or feather. I can easily go all day without having to barely check it. If you're going out to eat, keep in mind that it can show wear, depending on how greasy your food is. Liquid lipsticks easily break down with oil based products, so keep that in mind when it's time to wash them off for the fastest & most gentle removal.
I think the doe-foot applicator is fairly common with products like this & it's pretty easy to apply. Sometimes I'll use a lip liner to line my lips, depending on the color, for a fool-proof application, but it's not necessary, it's all personal preference and what's easiest for you. If you don't like a matte finish, which is very popular at the moment, you can always add a gloss on top if that's the look you love! It would just no longer be long-lasting & transform into a very shiny yet opaque gloss, whichever color you were wearing!
The Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks don't have a scent that I've noticed, so that's a plus... Sometimes lip products can have a very chemical-like scent or be weirdly sweet & I'm glad this has neither, because my nose has been very sensitive while I'm pregnant. I love the packaging. I think the box is cute & the actual liquid lipgloss is too! I love the detail and think Kat did a great job with her entire line, I feel it's all very her, yet universally pleasing to the eye.
I hope the swatches are helpful, there aren't a lot of reviews on brown complexions & I'll admit the colors can look different on everyone, I think it also has a part to do with your natural lip color as well, but they're all gorgeous in their own ways. I can't wait to get some more & if you haven't tried this line yet & decide to, please share that with me! They're hands-down my favorite liquid lipsticks at the moment!
