Ever since Kylie Jenner released her lip kits, lip products have been taking centre stage in the makeup world. If you asked me two years ago what I thought about lip liners, I would have said that I thought only old ladies use them. I didn’t see the need to line your lips. Fast-forward two years and that’s all changed.
I find myself regularly reaching for lip liners to line my lips before applying a matte liquid lip. Since these set so quickly, I like to line my lips first and then fill them in with the product. I have uneven lips, so this lets me stay within the lines easily and makes application just more simple in general. Lining your lips also makes them look larger.
Since the Kylie Lip Kits come with a lip liner, a lot of other brands have been releasing the liners to coincide with the different shades in their lipstick line. Kat Von D is one of the newest ones to release these products.
Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick have reached cult status, and for good reason. There’s an assortment of different shades and the formula stays on your lips for a long time, giving you a matte texture with a colour so opaque it’s crazy. Their Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks are so popular that it’s a no-brainer that they released a lip liner to pair up with the lipsticks.
The Everlasting Lip Liners are available in 30 shades that are matched perfectly with the Kat Von D lipsticks. There’s favourites like Lolita, Bow N Arrow, and Vampira, as well as many other shades to choose from that run the gamut of cool-girl colours. The lip liners are retractable (no sharpener needed) and offer up 24-hour, water-resistant wear with a weightless colour and matte texture.
I received the colour Lolita free from Influenster and was so excited to give it a try since I have Lolita in the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick as well. In case you don’t know, Lolita is Kat Von D’s most popular shade and also one of the best-selling colours in Sephora history. The colour matches the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick to a T and feels so comfortable when applied.
The texture of lip liners in general can be hit or miss, some of them drag on your lips and give you a faint colour that you really have to press down to apply, others glide on your lips smoothly. The Kat Von D ones are the latter, they apply so creamy and buttery that you definitely need to apply these with a light hand.
I have a bunch of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks, and all of them are unconventional shades or darker ones (browns, blues, blacks, reds, purples), so I’m totally going to look into investing in a few more shades since it will be easier applying the lipsticks if I have a liner on hand. I don’t know about you, but have you ever used a lipliner that was slightly off from the shade of lipstick you were applying? Yeah, it looks very ’80s.
Overall I’m totally digging these liners, they apply so pigmented and give you a comfortable wear. You can even just wear these alone if you don’t want to invest in both products. They retail for C$22 each and the lipsticks go for C$24.
