The buzz around liquid lipsticks doesn’t look like it’s going to calm down any time soon and as more and more brands dip their toes in the water, we’re starting to see a whole bunch of different shades, formulas on the market. The main player is the classic 90’s brown lip that the beauty world is obsessed with right now. I mean Kylie Jenner has built a cosmetics empire on the look, but having heard mixed reviews about KJ’s line (and not wanting to pay extortionate amounts on shipping), I opted for the OG, Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade ‘Lolita’.
Time for a little backstory, I have been obsessed with this shade for years and would always swatch this shade whenever I was in the states but the colour is slightly intimidating, especially for someone as pale as me, so I would leave empty handed and with a liquid lipstick shaped hole in my heart. Kat Von D has since made it over to our shores and is now stocked in Debenhams, so I decided to bite the bullet – and I’m glad that I did!
The shade is very brown in tone and whilst that put me off initially, I’ve found that I actually adore the shade. I usually pair this with my MAC Lip Liner in the shade ‘Soar’ to keep things neat, which adds a slight hint of pink. The formula is long lasting without being drying and the shade is pigmented so even when it does fade, it’s pretty even.
‘Lolita’ gives the perfect autumnal twist to my otherwise basic (read: boring) makeup routine, and whilst it’s slightly too dramatic for me to wear every day, it’s one that I look forward to cracking out on the weekends. Kat Von D, you are the ultimate babe!
