Confession time: I’ve actually owned a Kat Von D liquid lipstick for a disgustingly long time (ie: a year, check out this haul) but because the shade is outside my “dusty rose” comfort zone I haven’t actually used it. But when over a dozen new shades were added last fall, they definitely caught my attention, and among the few on my wishlist my number one pick was the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Dare*. Well, it’s finally mine, so it’s time to find out…is it everything I thought it would be?
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Dare is a medium pink with a peachy lean to it. It’s packaged in the same long slender tubes as the rest of the collection, with a really pretty “tattoo” design familiar to Kat Von D products. When I reviewed the MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour earlier this week I lamented the lack of neutral shades, so if you felt similarly, definitely check out the Kat Von D lineup.
The formula of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Dare is creamy and opaque. The small doefoot applicator makes it very easy to apply precisely, and I only need one coat for great coverage. It takes about a minute for the lipstick to dry which gives you a chance to press your lips together. This shade has a gorgeous, smooth, even finish.
On the lips, the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Dare does feel a little drying over time, but it also is totally smudge-proof. I got zero transfer, even when drinking and eating, as long as you avoid anything oily. The lasting power is incredible, it honestly still looked great when I removed it, I just can’t wear lip products more than 4-5 hours. I need an oil-based cleanser to remove it. (Psst– love my eye look? That’s the Kat Von D Metal Crush eyeshadows of course…review coming soon!)
I absolutely adore the shade and formula of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Double Dare. I think this shade is incredibly flattering and if you are looking long-lasting matte lip that applies flawlessly, you definitely need to check it out.
Now that I’ve fallen in love with the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick formula, what shade is next? Perhaps a nice pitch black like Witches? Or, more likely, that gorgeous dusty rose Mother that never seems to be in stock… Have you tried this formula yet? I double dare you to!
