Feeling caliente: Kat Von D Lolita Collection

Did you know that Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita is sold every minute?

To celebrate one of the most iconic shades in the beauty world, the vegan cruelty-free brand has released a three-piece collection which extends the shade into a plethora of products.

The Lolita Capsule Collection is comprised of a liquid eyeliner, an eyeshadow palette, and a shimmery lipstick that gives you multiple ways to wear the chestnut rose shade. When the brand originally released the colour in 2015 it sparked a frenzy and became an instant favourite for so many people thanks to it being universal for any skin tone.  In fact, when a manufacturing error produced the shade a little differently, it instantly sparked a controversy and the brand dubbed the new shade Lolita II.

Anyways, if you are a fan of the OG Lolita, then you must look into this collection. Up first is the Lolita Eyeshadow Palette (C$46), which includes the original Lolita eyeshadow, which sold out in a few hours when it was originally released as an individual shade.  Open up the fuchsia palette to reveal eight matte shades that were inspired by Lolita’s rosy tones. If you haven’t tried Kat Von D shadows before, they are very high pigment and blendable, so a little goes a long way.

If you have blue or green eyes, then you’ll find that this palette really makes your eyes pop.  They are all rose-toned shades, so there isn’t a ton of ways to wear this (I prefer more neutral and gold-toned shadows). They are also matte shades, which I love for the crease, but not so much for the lid. I ended up putting a shimmery pigment on my lid after I played around with this palette and photographed swatches, just so I could make the eyes pop a little more.

Up next is the Ink Well Long-Wear Matte Eyeliner in Lolita (C$25), which is a matte eyeliner that provides 24-hour wear and waterproof, transfer-proof, and smudge-proof wear. The product is applied via the thin-tipped applicator that comes out of the pot.  At first I didn’t get the appeal of this liner, but after using it a couple times, I actually really ended up loving the shade and how it made my eyes pop. It’s something different than my usual black or brown and very wearable for daytime. My only complaint on this is that sometimes when I take the applicator out it tends to drip since it is a very wet product.  I do love how it dries ultra matte and quite fast.

Finally, if you want to wear Lolita on the lips in a different way, then take a look at the Everlasting Glimmer Veil Liquid Lipstick in Lolita (C$30), which is a rich, glimmer lipstick that is long wearing and weightless on application. Since the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks are matte, this one adds a beautiful glimmer finish, without the usual grit that comes with a normal glimmer lipstick usually. I’ve tried this formula before and the colours were all very bright shades that I wouldn’t normally wear, however, this one is incredibly wearable and every time I have worn it I have gotten compliments on it. If you love Lolita, then look into picking this up. It’s the iconic shade, but in a glimmery format.

I actually ended up liking these products more than I thought I would. Although I am a fan of the original Lolita, a whole collection based on the iconic shade is a little much, but it totally works with all these products.

If you were to choose just one item out of the three, I would say to go with the Everlasting Glimmer Veil Liquid Lipstick as you would probably get the most wear out of it and the formula of this lipstick really is beautiful.
