Swatches - Kat Von D Everlasting Mini Liquid Lipstick Set (Holiday 2016)
I know this set has been out a while already, but I knew that Sephora would eventually do their BI/VIB/Rouge Loyalty Reward, so I ended up getting this for $25 off, which is pretty sweet :)
I've been a big fan of KVD's liquid lipsticks for a while, and I especially love picking up the mini sizes because it allows me to try a range of colors without committing to a full-sized tube (and the full-sized price). This particular set is a great sampler set of the color range, and also includes two brand-new exclusive shades. (I have no idea if they will eventually be permanent or not.)
In general, these lipsticks are highly pigmented, long-lasting (but not uncomfortable to remove, unless you're trying on eight at a time like I did), and are more of a "soft matte" than a total cracked-scorched-earth dry matte. I know I've said before that ColourPop's Ultra Matte Lips are my favorite for the price, but if price were no issue, I would totally go with KVD.
Some swatches for you:
(By the way, I apologize that I'm not more glammed up in the follow pics - the temperature outside is in the 30s, and not much warmer inside.)
So yeah, if you've never really given KVD's Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks a try, and you would like to see what this line is all about (especially with the "weird" colors), I HIGHLY recommend picking up this set. If you end up with any Sephora giftcards for the holidays, all the better!
