Product Review: Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner in Lolita

Where to purchase: Sephora and online at katvondbeauty.com
Price: $18 for 0.25 g/ 0.009 oz

Made in Germany

Description from the website:
What it is:
A lip liner that combines 24-hour, water-resistant wear and weightless color, in 30 shades matched to Kat Von D's iconic lipsticks.

What does:
At last, a lip liner in a boundary-breaking spectrum of 30 shades, from classic nudes and reds to fearless bolds you can only expect from Kat Von D. Everlasting Lip Liner lives up to the promise of Kat's beloved Everlasting Liquid Lipstick with comfortable, long wear and a matte, high-pigment formula.

Kat pushed the limits of performance and experience to combine 24-hour, water-resistant wear with a weightless glide formula to offer ultimate pigmentation, immediate dry down, and effortless definition. Just like its liquid lipstick partner in crime, this liner is so comfortable it feels like nothing. Say farewell to dryness, skipping, and dragging for good.

Kat hand-picked the versatile, bold shade range so there's a perfect match for every single Everlasting and Studded Kiss Lipstick. This liner was designed to pair perfectly with both formulas, or to be worn on its own, for a smooth, even application. Choose from all-time cult favorite, including Lolita, Bow N Arrow, and Vampira, or discover new classics.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens

What else you need to know:
The 30-shade range contains a match for every single Everlasting Liquid Lipstick and Studded Kiss Lipstick. Each lip liner shade features a custom formulation to max out pigmentation while maintaining the high-performance you expect from Kat Von D.

Everlasting Lip Liner is completely free of animal-derived ingredients.

Ingredients:
Thoughts: When I first heard about this product on Instagram, I was intrigued. So when I realized I was getting this product (I never received an email), I was extremely excited.
Here's a closer look at the color.
I retracted as far as it went and here's the total quantity of product you get.
Here's a swatch of the lip liner Lolita on the left and Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita on the right.
Here's how the lip liner Lolita look on me.
Here's an overall look on me. I have ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in I Heart This on the lid and MAC in Mulch on the crease and outer v of the eyes.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying. I just sniffed the product and there's no scent whatsoever. Secondly, the packaging is nice. I like that the design matches with her other Kat Von D products. I also like that the coloring of the packaging matches the color of the lip liner. If you own more than one, you can distinguish them apart. With that said, it's well-made and sturdy. The top is also sturdy. It makes a clicking noise when I pull and close the top. I cannot see it open unless you open manually, as well as, break unless you are rough with the packaging. For that reason, it's travel-friendly. It's small enough to toss in your purse/bag and even your pocket. I also like that it's retractable, and it's easy to pull up and down. Third, the consistency is creamy and glides on. It does not tug on the lips. With that said, it's easy to use. Since the liner is thin, it's easy to outline the outside of the lips. If you're only using to outline the outside of the lips, this is a good pencil. It's also good to fill in the rest of the lips but it takes a lot more effort than a chubby pencils. It is all up to the individual. I don't mind either but since the liner is thin, it's easy to finish. I noticed a decrease of product after one usage. Again, it's up to the individual if you're willing to pay $18 for a thin liner. Fourth, the color is gorgeous. I compared it to Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita and this is slightly darker. It's a perfect match in my opinion. You want a darker lip liner than the lip product. I also think the lip liner in Lolita is more a neutral mauve color, whereas, the liquid lipstick in Lolita is more a reddish-brown. Even though they're slightly different, they're close if that makes sense. With that said, the lip liner is great all year round. If I use it with the liquid lipstick in Lolita, I would only wear it during the fall/winter season. When it comes to pigmentation, it's pretty pigmented. I like how pigmented the lip liner is. Lastly, I'm so thankful for being able to try this lip liner. It lasted until I ate/drank. I also have a tendency to wipe my mouth after I eat. That might be another reason it only lasts until I eat. With that said, it's extremely comfortable and not drying. I didn't see any white residue in the center of the lips from dryness.
