Kat Von D - Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, Lock-It Setting Powder
Updated: Oct 9, 2018
I've been waiting for a long time to try some products from Kat Von D (mainly her liquid lipsticks). Fortunately, I had an opportunity to buy some products from this brand during our trip to Prague. I was sure that one of the products I'll try will be a liquid lipstick, but I was looking for something which I could use every day. Setting powder is something I wanted to test from different brands and that's why I decided to purchase one (I was hoping that it will be a lucky choice).
Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
Price: 22£ - 20€ - 20$
The Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is available in 55 shades. The brand has a colour for every taste. I love the variety of unusual colours this line offers. I wanted to buy only one shade and I chose the Double Dare. It looks like that it was a good decision, because it has a remarkable shade in my opinion.
The liquid lipsticks comes in black package with rose detailed design. The box itself is made of a thin cardboard. The thin tube is elegant and easy to travel with. It is transparent with some black roses printed on it.
The first time I saw the long wand I thought that the application won't be easy, but fortunately I was wrong. I was surprised that this long wand was perfect for precise lines. I wore this lipstick all day and didn't have to reapply it. I could drink and eat (except greasy food) and it stayed on without any major colour transfers. It was comfortable to wear and doesn't make my lips look dry. The lipstick is pigmented and I'm quite sure I'll buy more colours sometime in the future. The formula is creamy and you have just few seconds to apply before it sets and turns into matte.
If you're a big fan of liquid lipsticks you have to give it a try.
Lock-It Setting Powder
Price: 10£ - 16€ - 15$ (Travel) / 22£ - 35€ - 30$ (Normal)
Weight: 5.4g (Travel) / 19g (Normal)
It comes in black cardboard case. You can see the brand and a product name on the top. The powder is packaged in a plastic tub and the large Kat Von D logo is printed on it. The holes of the shifter forms the brand's iconic star. You'll find a soft sponge covering the mentioned shifter. I bought the travel sized Lock-It Setting Powder. This one has only a small sponge included, but I think the normal sized product comes with a bigger, well usable sponge (haven't tested).
The powder is translucent and it's perfect for light, medium or dark skin tone. It feels soft and smooth on the skin. It gives you a soft-matte look all day and is weightless on the skin. It sets the foundation and a concealer perfect and it is very easy to use. The product doesn't leave white finish on my face. That was the most important part of the test for me. I'll be honest, I was scared, because I had bad experience with setting powders I tried before.
I truly love this setting powder and I'm glad that I bought it. If you need a good powder or you like baking, I highly recommend this product.
All of these products are cruelty-free and free of animal-derived ingredients.
