I’m down for anything with the word “glitter” in it.
You guys know I love Kat Von D Beauty, in fact, I recently did a review on their reformulated Studded Kiss lipsticks. So when the brand sent me four of their Everlasting Glimmer Veil liquid lipsticks, I was so pumped to give these a try. These are billed to give you the same long wear, weightless feeling as their famed Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks, which I also love, but with a multidimensional liquid-crystal glitter finish.
The first thing you’ll notice about these is the packaging. When I first opened the box, I totally thought these were thin lipsticks, but like the name says, they are liquid and have a doe-foot applicator to apply the product. The second thing you’ll notice is how sparkly these are. The formula is very glittery and will give you that statement lip you never knew you needed.
I received four shades, Rocker (copper with gold glimmer), Dazzle (crimson with pink and gold glimmer), Shockfull (fluorescent pink with pink glimmer), and Razzle (magenta with pink glimmer). Each colour glides on the lips and delivers bold, opaque colour. The wear on this is very lightweight, similar to the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks, and they dry down quite quickly. I will note that they also stain your lips once they are removed as the formula does have a liquid lip stain base, which is great if you don’t want to worry about your lipstick fading after eating or drinking (but bad when you want to remove it).
I have a lot of lipsticks in my collection, but I have to say that I don’t have anything even close to this formula. These deliver major shine and you can definitely tell that there are particles of glitter in some of them. Because of that, they are more suited for weekend wear or a party or special event, as I don’t think I could pull this off at the office (there’s also a blue one, definitely not for office wear). The brand also recommends that you can layer them over the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks for a truly unique look.
There are nine shades of these bad boys and they are currently all on sale on Kat Von D’s site right now for $15. Would I recommend this product? I think it’s a cool idea, however, I don’t think these would be something you would wear everyday. I do prefer her original Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks, however, some of the shades, like the red (Dazzle) or the nude (Thunderstruck) may be more versatile if you want to pull this off more often. Also, if you are looking for a liquid lipstick with a bit of shine, and love her original formula, then I would definitely look into these.
Have you tried Kat Von D’s Glimmer Veil lipsticks? What were your thoughts?
Please note, I received this product from PR. All opinions are my own.
