Kat von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks need no introduction. Super pigmented, long-wearing, and perfectly matte without drying, these cult classics come in a literal rainbow of colours to suit everybody– from nudes to vampy goth greys and blacks to bright searing colours. And if that wasn’t good enough, Kat von D recently blessed us with even more additions to her already vast collection of shades!
We put 3 of the new shades to the test on 3 very different skin tones! Deputy Lifestyle and Features Editor Vasenta, Beauty Editor Sarah, and Senior Web Writer Yi-Di readily volunteered their lips to try on Kat Von D’s take on bright orange, deep brown, and smoky gray liquid lipsticks.
Yi-Di: “While I love warm colours to suit my own warm colouring, this one was just a little too orange and brought out the yellow in my skin too much for my liking. On the plus side, this shade magically made everyone’s lips look super plump and full.”
Sarah: “LOVE this colour and how it cheers up my skintone. Not a colour I’d wear everyday but will definitely pick it for a fancy occasion or for a beauty boost when I’m not feeling well.”
Vasenta: “I hardly use such striking shades of colour for my lips. This colour really popped and gave me a whole vibrant look! I found that I needed to apply lip balm before using this, but don’t use too much as the lip colour might look a li’l patchy. ”
