I was lucky enough to be selected by Influenster to test out the new Kat Von D Beauty Everlasting Lip Liner in LOLITA! Since I already own this shade in their Everlasting Liquid Lipstick I knew it would work well with my skintone. There’s a reason why it’s a cult favorite, it’s a universally flattering shade.

only 0.03g of product compared to other brands
Not only does this lip liner apply like a dream – no tugging – it stays on and doesn’t dry out my lips like other brands. I swatched it on my arm and had a difficult time trying to take it off. I ended up using two baby wipes and even then it left a stain on my skin – impressive!
However, on my lips, is another story. If you line and fill in your lips and then eat a meal, it will eventually wear away in the middle and you’ll be left with an outline of color. That’s pretty normal and I find it happens with most lip products that claim to be long-lasting.
Shade range is excellent! There are 30 (THIRTY!) shades altogether, so you’re bound to find one to suit any mood and skin tone. I do hope they’ll release other colors to match their Studded Kiss line, like my other favorite ‘Mother’.
As with all KVD products the packaging and attention to design is great. I appreciate the retractable pencil and not having to fiddle with sharpening it. As for the amount of product in the tube, there’s only about 0.01oz (or 0.3g). Unfortunately, that’s much less than other brands at this price point. If you’re on a budget (and who isn’t?) it’s something to keep in mind. The Everlasting Lip Liners are available on the KVD website and at Sephora for 18$ a pop.
