Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Review

Hey everyone it’s time for another Kat Von D review with this post focusing on three of the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks in the shades Nahz Fur Atoo, Exorcism and Crucifix.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

I love the sleek packaging with the rose design, these liquid lipsticks retail for £17 each and come in a wide range of shades.

I normally wear nude shades but after a lot of Googling lip swatches I settled on the more ‘bolder’ shades Nahz Fur Atoo, Crucifix and Exorcism. I initially only wanted to purchase Exorcism after doing an exchange but they happened to be on a 3 for 2 deal in Debenhams so I couldn’t resist picking up two more.

My favourite shade is Nahz Fur Atoo which is a gorgeous bright red, they are long lasting like the name suggests and once dried they don’t transfer when eating or drinking which is always a bonus.

At first I did find them a little tricky to neatly apply without a lip liner but I soon got the hang of it. I have tried using a Revolution Vampire Night lip liner underneath but it didn’t last well throughout the day.

One of the great things about the liquid lipsticks are that you get enough product with one application and don’t need to re-dip into the tube.

They are not drying so comfortable to wear, last all day with the only downside being it can be a pain to remove them sometimes but I would say they are worth the money.

e.l.f Liquid Matte Lipstick Praline First Impressions

I love matte liquid lipsticks so I was excited to be sent one to try out for Superdrug’s Blog Squad. The lipstick today is by e.l.f  which admittedly is a brand I haven’t tried out all that much in the past. The shade I was sent is a gorgeous deep nude called Praline.

e.l.f’s packaging is pretty basic and generally the same for each item. From first impressions of the liquid lipstick I was quite surprised at how large the applicator is in comparisons to other brands.

I have found it quite hard to apply due to the size of the applicator and without a lip liner as I cant seem to get it neat around the lip line. I do absolutely love the colour though its just a shame its a bit awkward to use.

The colour is very similar to the shades in the new Revolution Nudes Collection: On Display and Stripped Liquid Lipsticks.  e.l.f Praline retails for £6 whereas Revolutions retails for £3. 

It is definitely not a long lasting liquid lipstick and does need touching up throughout the day but with that said I don’t think you can complain really for the price. Whilst I don’t hate the product I don’t love it either. 

e.l.f makeup is cruelty free and suitable for Vegans.

Revolution Nudes Collection: On Display and Stripped Liquid Lipsticks

Revolution formally known as Makeup Revolution has launched a brand new nudes lip collection consisting of four mattes, four metallics and four glosses. This review is about two of the new matte shades.

Revolution Stripped and On Display

I love nude liquid lipsticks with a matte finish so I opted for On Display and Stripped although all of the shades do look stunning.

All of the shades cost £3 each! I’ve always loved that Revolution is so affordable and offer good quality products for such a low cost.

Revolution On Display and Stripped Swatches

I love both of these shades and can’t decide which one I prefer, Stripped is a softer brown nude whereas On Display is deeper and has more of a burnt orange undertone on me.

They haven’t dried down fully on my swatches but they don’t take too long to do so either. If you have dry lips then it will pick up on these areas, however, it is comfortable on the lips and doesn’t feel too drying.

Revolution Applicators Stripped and On Display

The applicators are so easy to use, especially if you aren’t using a lip liner! The shape is different to the previous liquid lipsticks in the lip kits but I much prefer the newer wands.

Overall I’m really pleased with the longevity of these lipsticks, they just don’t budge! They are super affordable, pigmented and come in a great range of shades and finishes. I much prefer this newer range of liquid lipsticks formula over previous ones produced by Makeup Revolution.

Makeup Revolution Vampire Night Lip Kit 

It’s almost Halloween and to celebrate Makeup Revolution have brought out some new ‘spooky’ products including the Vampire Night matte lip kit and Ghostly highlighters.

The box design is no different to the usual lip kits launched earlier this year, I’m slightly disappointed the lips don’t feature vampire teeth to add that special Halloween touch.

Deep reds are such great colours for Autumn so I was excited to try this out. I have two other lip kits from MUR which I have reviewed here. Unfortunately the lip liner doesn’t fully match and is more pinky toned than the actual liquid lipstick so on application you can see the difference.

MUR Vampire Night Swatch
The liquid lipstick is a very good match to the box image which I know MUR have had problems in the past with incorrect shade images. Compared to previous kits I felt the lip liner wasn’t as creamy and felt more difficult to apply as it felt sharper.

If you’ve visited my blog before then you’ll know I absolutely love MUR but this lip kit just wasn’t my favourite. The liquid lipstick formula is not the same as previous kits and felt quite flaky to wipe away and didn’t feel as comfortable on the lips and personally I’d rather the lip liner was a matching shade.

For £6 you get a great vampy shade but it isn’t the best lip kit around.

Have you tried Vampire Night? 

Makeup Revolution Matte Lip Kits Review

Liquid Lipsticks are more popular than ever thanks to Kylie Jenner, for those of us in the UK the Kylie Jenner make up range isn’t as accessible to get without paying a large custom charge and of course it’s really popular and sells out fast!

Makeup Revolution has thankfully brought out a wide range of colour dupes with their Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit collection which retail at £6.

Makeup Revolution Lip Kits

This is my first experience using a liquid lipstick so naturally I went for the Nude shades, Echelon is a brown toned nude and Reign is a pink toned nude. I’m not sure why but my boxes do not match each other in terms of text layout… It doesn’t really bother me it just seems odd.

One thing I know people have commented on with these products is that the shade on the box doesn’t match the actually shade inside and I can agree with that so if in doubt always swatch first!

The lip kit contains the liquid lipstick and a lip liner, the lip liners do not match the lipsticks perfectly, however, it isn’t blatantly obvious when the product is on the lips and blended together.  The liquid lipstick as you can see just has your standard lip gloss wand.

Makeup Revolution Lip Kit Swatches

I found the lip liners creamy, very pigmented and glided on, however, my lip liner for Echelon has quite a wobbly tip and looks like it might break so I don’t know if mines just badly made or if they aren’t sturdy in general…

The liquid lipsticks are also very pigmented, comfortable to wear and last throughout the day, they don’t transfer and aren’t drying which is always a bonus.

I absolutely love both colours but Echelon is my favourite of the two!

I would recommend these lip kits if you’re after a matte lip product that lasts throughout the day without needing to re-apply your lipstick. For £6 you can’t go wrong unless you don’t swatch the product first as you may end up with a different colour to what you wanted.

You can purchase these from Tambeauty.com or from Superdrug

*Update: my Echelon Lip Liner has since broken inside the lid and I’ve barely used, they can be sharpened but mine was damaged beyond repair.
