I’m trying my best to come up with a blogging schedule I can fit in my routine without ending up wide awake at 3am describing eyeshadow colours (I blame the late afternoon coffee). So far I’m striving for one post per week, every Friday/Saturday, but stay tuned for changes. Today, following along with my resolution to review everything from last years holiday collections haul, I’ll talk about the Everlasting Mini Liquid Lipstick Set from Kat Von D Beauty. Fun fact – although it came out as part of last years Christmas collection, this wonderful set is still available on the Kat Von D Beauty website for mere 49$ (Kat Von D Beauty ships worldwide and orders to Bulgaria do not get held at customs).
Тhe Everlasting Mini Liquid Lipstick Set includes 8 mini versions of the infamous Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks. The shades included are Madrid, Exorcism, Lovecraft, Ludwig, Sanctuary, Hawkwind, Damned and Witches. All of the colours are part of the permanent line with the exception of Madrid, which is new and exclusive to the set. The mini packaging contains 3ml of product as opposed to 6.6ml in the full size. Kat Von D Beauty is a cruelty free brand and I believe this set is vegan.
Here are the swatches (left to right) – Witches, Damned, Hawkwind, Sanctuary, Ludwig, Lovecraft, Exorcism, Madrid. All of the lipsticks dry matte on the lips.
Witches – Cool black. It applies a bit streaky and the formula is a bit thinner and sheerer than the rest. I find myself having to go over at least twice for an opaque coverage. I’ve never owned another black lipstick before this one, but where was that when I was 14.
Damned – Deep blood red. Also a shade which needs two coats, but this one applies a lot more even on the lips.
Hawkwind – Warm medium-dark brown with just a bit of pink undertones. Opaque and even with one coat.
Sanctuary – Cool medium-dark mauve. It dries a bit greyer than the swatch and is a bit watery, so I do two coats. The shade is very unique and was a nice surprise, as I did not imagine to like it as much as I do.
Ludwig – Light pinky beige, a bit on the warmer side. Opaque and even with one application. This shade is the only nude lipstick I’ve found which doesn’t make me look like a pale zombie version of Snow White. I’m repurchasing this in the full size for sure.
Lovecraft – Cool medium-dark pink. It’s pretty bright. Applies smoothly and evenly.
Exorcism – Cool deep cherry. It needs a second layer, but applies evenly. I love it. Don’t ask me why – I do not wear dark shades in my day to day life, but I’m a sucker for them. They make up 2/3 of my lipstick collection. Go figure.
Madrid – Warm dark greyish-plum. Dries greyer and darker than the photo. Another unique shade, but it’s a bit watery and needs two layers.
In terms of wear time, I consider the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks second best only to Jeffree Stars Velour Liquid Lipsticks(I need to reapply after eating), but unlike them, they do not feel dry on my lips at least for the first 3-4 hours. Although some of the shades have a bit thinner consistency, I have not experienced any transitioning around the lips and I did not use a lipliner.
Here is the back of packaging and the full list of ingredients.
Overall I am very very pleased with this set. For someone with enough lipsticks to drown in, the mini sizes provide plenty of product to play with. The value is also pretty good – you’re getting almost 75$ worth of product for 50$. I think the shade selection might not be everyones cup of tea, but I love it. With the exception of ‘Lovecraft’ and maybe ‘Ludwig’, most of the shades are not ones I’d be willing to buy full sizes of (although I kind of fell in love with ‘Sanctuary’ and ‘Exorcism’) and these minis allow me to try something outside of my comfort zone without breaking the bank. If you’re feeling adventurous or you just want to expand your liquid lipstick collection, I do recommend getting this while the stocks last.
