It was such a sought after product that almost every brand has launched a fine exquisite of their own range in liquid lipsticks. From LimeCrime to Stila to Colorpop to KYLIE's range, the market is flooded with the sublime ranges. But having so many options means you have to opt for whats best for you and your pocket. I have tried a few brands (which I will be reviewing very soon too) but haven't spotted my best friend for life. Scroll down to know my thoughts on this lip duo by Kat Von D.
About the Product:
Kat Von D Beauty is basically known for, as it says on their website
We are bold, unapologetic, outspoken and different in our own way. We are artists, poets and lovers. We are the outsiders and the insiders.
100% Cruelty Free Forever
Their bold, fun, loud and wide range of products makes you crave for getting your hands on it. And when we talk about their liquid lipsticks, they are one of the kind. The product claim to be, as on their site
THE life-proof lipstick that will not wear off! Yes, you can eat, drink, make up, break up and mouth-off knowing your lips are gonna stay flawless through it all!
In 28 to-die-for shades, this creamy formula glides over lips like a gloss and sets to a true matte finish. Along with 24-hour wear and high-pigment color, the next-generation formula is packed with natural moisturizers, including Vitamin E and Sunflower Seed Wax. All-day wear has never felt so comfortable!
Live happily Everlasting!
In this post I will be reviewing Kat Von D's limited addition Lolita Lip Duo which contains minis of her Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks in Lolita and Lolita II. These are 0.10 tubes (full-size tubes are 0.22 oz. for $22). It was part of 2015's holiday limited edition.
Packaging:It comes in a matte black box with two liquid lipsticks inside packed in black matte paper. The back of box has lip swatches of both shades, with the description of the shade's tones
*2 MINI EVERLASTING LIQUID LIPSTICKS IN LOLITA, A CHESTNUT ROSE, AND LOLITA II, A TERRA COTTA NUDE.*
LONG WEAR. FULL COVERAGE. VELVET MATTE FINISH
On one side of the package there is an other statement which says
ON THEIR OWN, THEY'RE ICONIC, TOGETHER THEY'RE INVINCIBLE.
DISCOVER THE SHADE THAT REDEFINED THE CLASSIC NEUTRAL LIP. THIS DUO OF COVETABLE FAVORITES FEATURES TWO TAKES ON CULT FAVORITE LOLITA; THE ORIGINAL CHESTNUT ROSE, AND LOLITA II, HER BRIGHTER ALTER EGO.
Both the shades are equally beautiful and totally compliment Asian skin tones. What makes this duo worth buying is Lolita II which is the recent addition to the Lolita set with more beautiful tones. Both the shades are flawlessly universal but I personally prefer Lolita II over Lolita. As the it is more nude than brown. Now coming towards the formula, it is the most comfortable one i have ever tried (Trust me). it doesn't made my lips tight or too dry. The color of these liquid lipsticks look same on my lips too, as on the tube unlike other brands liquid lipsticks I have used. Both LL are quite pigmented and one swipe of product was enough to get the required shade. Finish is truly matte as it also appears in the swatches and once it is set, its doesn't move for well about 6 hours with little snacking and drinking, as claimed on their site. But make sure you exfoliate your lips before applying any liquid lipstick as they tend to cling in your dry patches. I don't really feel the need to line my lips before applying these, as the shades are nude and don't bleed. To remove this I use my Olay makeup remover and I was surprised to see that it came off pretty easily. So far hands down this formula is the best. Will definitely buy some more shades as it is worth every penny.
