Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick review

Jordanna HarrisVeganize It blog0 Comments

I have great respect for Kat Von D because she is an outspoken Vegan and is an amazing artist. Over the years I’ve heard positive reviews about her makeup line and finally looked into it. All her products are cruelty free and have been since the creation of her line, and her makeup line is also moving towards becoming 100% vegan. I love supporting fellow vegans and it doesn’t hurt that her makeup is pretty great.


I think that anyone who wears makeup knows that liquid lipstick and matte lipstick have been huge over the past few years. But along with having beautiful matte lips comes a whole bunch of drawbacks. You always hear that matte lipsticks are super drying and patchy or bunch up weirdly. It is so hard to navigate which ones to buy when every makeup brand seems to be coming out with liquid lipsticks. I think that Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks are some of the best.  Even though I have very dry lips, I don’t find these lipsticks to be too drying and, except for a few shades they aren’t patchy. I only have six of her twenty-eight shades, but I probably will get more later. I own Lolita, Lovesick, Mother, Bachelorette, Nosferatu, and Exorcism. I bought all of these from Sephora for $20 each.  Below, I get into all the particulars about each of the shades along with swatches.



I know that the most popular color of her Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is Lolita and I always thought that it would be way too brown for my extremely pale skin and naturally rosy lips. I ended up buying it and it is now, by far, my favorite color that I own. It honestly is one of the only browny nude lipsticks I have found that doesn’t make me look like a ghost. This color I find very easy to apply and not too drying. It definitely gets a bit uncomfortable when you have it on all day, but in my opinion any lipstick does. Seeing how the color is fairly light, I don’t find that it fades weirdly and it generally stays on throughout all eating and drinking.



The next shade that I have is Lovesick, which is a pinky nude. This color is almost the same color as my lips. It really is a my lips, but better shade. Just like Lolita this shade is so easy to wear. Seeing how it’s pale and if anything, comes off (not that it really transfers or comes off with food) it still looks fine because it is so close to my natural lip color. I bought this shade and Mother because I love wearing pinks in Spring and Summer. I like that Lovesick brightens my look without being a super vibrant color that requires me constantly checking it. All in all I love this shade and wear it a lot.



Mother is a beautiful deep pink. This shade is fairly new to me and I haven’t worn it that many times. It is pretty easy to apply, isn’t patchy at all and is transfer resistant. I really love wearing bright lipstick during this time of the year and pink shades go with my skin color the best. It isn’t my most worn simply because it is a deeper color and I tend to wear lighter shades on a regular basis. That being said, I have nothing negative to say about this shade.



I have owned Bachelorette for the longest out of all of the shades. Whenever I go to buy lipstick I’m drawn to reds because I want to be one of those women who effortlessly wear red lipstick everyday. Unfortunately, I will never be that woman, I drink way too much water and eat without regard for my lipstick. But enough about me being a monster. I really like this shade, it is a mix between pink and red. I love wearing this when I’m going out for the evening. Much like the lighter shades I own, Bachelorette is transfer resistant, isn’t patchy, and is very long lasting.



My lovely fiancé picked out the shade, Nosferatu, for me because he knows how much I love dark vampy reds. The color on this is beautiful, but as you can see from the swatch it is a bit patchy. You can get a pretty even color when you apply a couple layers of the lipstick, but it doesn’t ever look perfect. I also found that this color transfers a lot. The other shades hardly transfer at all, but this came off any time I drank or ate. The other problem is that when it did start coming off the inside of my lips don’t have any lipstick so there is a noticeable line. It does reapply fine, but you look crazy until you get the lipstick back on. It doesn’t get my stamp of approval seeing how I can’t even kiss the man who got it for me without getting red lipstick all over him.



Exorcism is my newest addition and I have to say I’m disappointed. I haven’t worn this yet except to swatch it and it went on very patchy. I’m hoping that the reasons it was so difficult to apply and was uneven is because I had done five lip swatches before, but I’m not sure. I’m determined to make this color work because I absolutely love it. I’m really into dark vampy shades, especially in the cooler months, but if I feel like it, I’ll rock it year round. I think with a lip liner under this shade it should look fine, but I have to mess around some more.

Summer Target Haul

Gavrielle and Jordanna needed to spruce up their wardrobes for summer. They also decided to stop writing in the third person. So, naturally we decided to head over to Target to grab a few pieces. Target gets kind of a bad wrap, but the fact of the matter is their clothes are cute, affordable, and (for the most part) well made.  Believe it or not we aren’t sponsored by Target but we probably should be! Target please give us free stuff!



“I have a strange obsession with kimonos. It’s actually a problem, but I feel like they are the perfect piece for spring and summer (or any season in LA) because they are light enough that you aren’t super sweaty, but also protect my ghost complexion from burning. This gray tank top doesn’t look that interesting, but it is super soft and has a criss-cross pattern with the straps in the back. Of course I covered that with the kimono… but you should take my word for it. It’s cute.”

Tank top $12.99 from Target
Floral Print Kimono $22.99 from Target



“Flared pants! Flared pants! Flared pants! I used to think I looked short and fat in flared pants. But no longer. They are slightly distressed on the bottom. My legs feel so much freer than in a skinny pant. The shirt is very different than anything else in my wardrobe and I’m loving it. The cold shoulder and scalped sleeve paired with the pants make me feel like a 70 beaut. I’ve always dreamed of being a purse lady but in reality I’m a backpack girl all the way. This faux leather bag is a nice way to dress up a backpack.”

Cold Shoulder Top $19.99 from Target
Faux Leather Backpack $29.99 from Target



“Ever since going vegan I’ve had a terrible time at finding bags that I actually like and are faux leather. This purse is the perfect size for all my everyday needs. It is a beautiful pinky nude color that goes with every outfit. I love carrying a light colored purse in the warmer months because it brings something bright to any outfit. For a Target purse (which generally fall apart immediately) it is surprisingly good quality. There is a detachable long strap so you can easily wear it over the shoulder or by the short handles.”

“As you can probably tell I’m a big fan of this sleeve style. But the great thing about this shirt is it’s actually a romper (or playsuit if you are unamerican, like European or something).”


A romper is a great alternative to wearing a skirt or a dress because it’s still flowy and fun, but has the comfort of shorts. It’s dark blue and light pink, two of my favorite color combinations. I love the tie at the waist because it shows I do indeed have a waist. Basically I feel like a hippie rockstar and it’s all I could ever ask for.

Romper $24.99 from Target



“I almost purchased the white and floral sandals Jordanna is modeling, but the truth is while I find them adorable, I just wouldn’t wear them. I’m a fan of more muted tones. Making these black knock-off Birkenstocks perfect for me. Birkenstocks are super on trend right now but they can be pricy and they are also real leather, making them a no in my book. These are all man-made materials and just more affordable.”


“The second I found these faux leather white floral Birkenstocks I feel in love. I even tried to convince Gavrielle that she would wear the floral ones but she settled for the black ones. I’ve been searching for a comfortable sandal that is easy to just throw on and these fit the bill. I have always been a huge fan of granny florals and I don’t think I’ve seen anything that is more granny floral than these shoes. I love the fact that the flowers are on a white background so the floral print really pops.”
