Today I would like to talk about something that a lot of us had been waiting for for a while. Something that had our hearts racing and had us dreaming of fun, funky lip looks!
That’s right! I have gotten my hands on 3 different shades from Kat Von D’s Everlasting Glimmer Veil Liquid Lipstick collection! I was beyond excited at the announcement of these because I love everything I have tried from Kat Von D in the past!
From left to right: Reverb, Rocker, and Thunderstruck.

So, I swatched these on my arm, and will show a picture with flash, and without (respectively).
I also took some pictures with them applied to my lips (with and without flash, respectively):
Rocker (Which I wore for the day):
I had to reapply the lipstick several times throughout the day. I wore Rocker by itself with no lip primer. Here is a picture after eating lunch:
And at the end of the day when I got tired of messing with it:
Trying Reverb over the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Dagger (as an accent and full coverage, with and without flash, respectively):
And after using a makeup wipe to remove it (First pic- Rocker, and reverb after swatching, and scrubbing off):
I absolutely fell in love with the colors, the glitter, and the idea behind these lipsticks. However, upon swatching and applying, they appear to be streaky and uneven. The darker colors leave hard to scrub off stains on chapped portions of the lips, and on skin, and the drying time makes it difficult to clean up mistakes. By themselves, the lipsticks don’t apply and wear well. I have not tried them with any type of lip primer yet. Applying Reverb over Dagger seemed to help with the coverage and streakiness, when applied all over, but trying to wear as an accent did not work out well.
The applicator was short and easy to handle, compared to the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, but the streakiness and short drying time made it challenging to get a good line. The lipstick was still not set in place after drying either. It rubbed off a little when touched to a finger and definitely rubbed off after eating and drinking with a straw.
I am still willing to keep trying these bad boys with other techniques. I would like to find a good lip primer to use and a few more lipstick colors to try underneath. But, at the moment, I no longer crazy about the lipsticks and I am feeling disappointed.
What are your thoughts? Have you tried these? Do you have any tips or tricks to overcome the issues I experienced?
