Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick - Lolita

I've been waiting to get my hands on this for what seems to be a small lifetime - it's always gracing my cousin Caitlin's lips and I always admire it, yet it's difficult to get your hands on. You may recall that in my Sephora haul last month I actually couldn't get this and so I settled for the deep red Vampira which I had mixed feelings about - however, this was in stock on Sephora when Caitlin made an order last week and so she threw one in for me because she's a little angel. So cue the newest addition to my lipstick collection - Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita.


I had read a lot about this and knew that the colour would look slightly different dependent on skin colour etc. but I'd seen it on someone with a similar skin tone to mine and so I knew that although this is marketed as a "Chesnut Brown" this would likely look a lot more brown than rose on me - something I was totally okay with. This feels a lot smoother on and considerably less chalky than Vampira, and definitely feels a lot lighter on the lips. This led me to worry, however, that wear time might be an issue in comparison to the practically impossible to remove Vampira. I have to say, wear time on Lolita is probably longer than Vampira - you don't get that dirty wash line as it's starting to wear off and so you get a lot more wear before you're actually forced to top it up.


Kat Von D appears to be the champion of taking traditional colours and making them like nothing you've ever seen before - in the same way as her previous offering stands alone with no close dupes in my make up drawer; I have to say Lolita does exactly the same. I might have just struck lucky with the colour choices, but I'd definitely be interested in trying the theory out further (which must mean that I'll have to buy more, what can you do - it's in the name of science).

I have to say that, whereas Vampira left me wondering whether it was worth the money I paid; with Lolita, I'm in absolutely no doubt whatsoever. I think Lolita is more forgiving in a number of ways - it's smoother and cleaner on, it goes on much much opaquely and evenly and it generally just wears better. In basic terms - Lolita is everything that I'd wanted Vampira to be that it fell short on; Kat Von D has definitely redeemed herself and her liquid lipsticks with this one, for me.

Have you tried any good liquid lipsticks?
