Since I wrote my first makeup post on the Natural Eyes palette, you asked me to review the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks. Ask and you shall receive, my friends. The KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipstick line are the first liquid lipsticks I’ve ever tried out, and now I’m obsessed. Hopefully, by the end of this post, you’ll see why and maybe consider checking them out yourself.
The Kat Von D Beauty official site says the following about these lipsticks:
THE life-proof lipstick that will not wear off! Yes, you can eat, drink, make up, break up and mouth-off knowing your lips are gonna stay flawless through it all!
In 31 to-die-for shades, this creamy formula glides over lips like a gloss and sets to a true matte finish. Along with 24-hour wear and high-pigment color, the next-generation formula is packed with natural moisturizers, including Vitamin E and Sunflower Seed Wax. All-day wear has never felt so comfortable!
Live happily Everlasting!
Similar to my last post, I will be going over the ingredients, do some swatches, and then show you how each color looks on my lips. Unfortunately, I do not currently own ever single lipstick in this line, which is why I will make more posts as I add more to my collection.
These are the shades I will be reviewing:
- Bow N’ Arrow
- Underage Red
All of these shades are matte. Sorry to all those who are metallic/glitter/shimmer fans.
According to Kat Von D Beauty’s website, the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks are made with Vitamin E and Sunflower Seed Wax.
They are also vegan and cruelty-free.
Each Everlasting Liquid Lipstick retails for $20 and can be bought off Sephora or Kat Von D Beauty’s official website.
Let’s get on with the swatches!
Noble is currently the lightest shade I own from the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick line.
On Sephora’s website, it is described as a “pink petal nude.”
I don’t know how this color would look on people with darker complexions. This would probably look good on people with neutral and warm skin tones. I think this would be a great lipstick for people who are huge fans of softer, more “natural” looks. It might be too light if you’re looking for a lipstick to complement a dramatic design. But in the end, it’s all based on your personal preferences.
Personally, Noble looks a bit too orange on my fair complexion, so it’s not a lipstick that I usually gravitate to whenever I do my makeup. Aside from that, it didn’t seem to be streaky upon application and I didn’t need to retouch it too much.
“Noble” is definitely a color that I think would look best in the spring or summer due to its lighter undertone.
Bow N’ Arrow
Bow N’ Arrow is described as a “fawn nude.”
On my skin, it does look like a warm, yet light brown. It almost reminds me of pudding, which might seem odd, unless you like pudding. In all seriousness, I believe that this color will look beautiful on all skin tones, and should be a really good nude for those with darker skin tones.
I absolutely love this color because it’s not too light, yet not too dark. Whether I want to create a soft, “natural” look, or do a dark and dramatic smokey eye, this shade is versatile and goes well with both looks. It’s also not very streaky and does not need much reapplying.
I freaking love this color!
Whenever I use this lipstick, Danzig’s “Mother” always pops in my head. Which makes sense given that this lipstick was probably named after the iconic song.
Mother is described as a “dusty mauve pink.”
This shade looks like a more neutral, muted pink compared to the other shades. It will probably look good on a variety of skin tones. Bauhau5 also didn’t look very streaky when I applied it to my lips.
At first, I didn’t really like how this shade looked on my pasty ass skin. I can’t recall exactly what it was that made me dislike it. I think it was because I thought it looked too warm on me at first.
Mother isn’t a shade that I wear consistently, but it has grown on me.
At first, I didn’t know how the fuck to pronounce this shade, but I’m grateful that Google is a tool I can use for instances such as these. Pronounced as “bow house,” I believe that this shade was named after the artist Ms. D dated awhile ago, but don’t quote me on that.
Bauhau5 is described as a being a “deep raspberry” shade.
But what’s weird about this is how this shade looks online. I’ll show you what I mean:
In case you can’t tell from the picture, Bauhau5 looks like a rich shade of red. However, in person, this shade is more on the pinker side of the color spectrum. It still has that raspberry tone, but I just found it strange how much lighter and mauve-y pink it actually is compared to the picture.
Nonetheless, I think that Bauhau5 is a beautiful color. It definitely is a shade that would be great to wear in the spring and summer because it’s so rich and vibrant. Whether you want to create a “soft with a pop of color” or very bright, out-there look, this shade could probably work in both scenarios. Bauhau5 is also pretty lightweight and doesn’t seem to leave any streaks when I apply it.
I definitely would recommend this to people who are tired of the pinks but don’t exactly want something as bold as a red lipstick.
I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that this way inspired by “Suspiria” the movie. If that’s the case, I’m surprised Kat Von D didn’t try to make this a red, given the fact that the movie is known for having beautiful colors, especially the blood. Moving on!
Susperia is a pretty bright shade of purple.
Sephora describes it as a “bright lavender,” which I guess is true. But from my perspective, it looks more like a light plum. But what the fuck do I know?
This shade seems to have a neutral undertone, which should make it good for all skin tones. I notice that despite how it’s a bright purple that it’s still very sexy. Sometimes bright colors come off looking like something a clown would wear, but that’s not the case with Susperia.
But what especially surprised me about this shade was how light it was after it dried. It felt like I wasn’t wearing anything on my lips. Granted, I have pretty dry skin so I have to make sure that I moisturize before applying, but even then the lipstick feels weightless.
Whether you’re a fan of purple or are just looking to put some variety in your lipstick collection, I definitely would recommend Susperia, as it’s one of my favorites.
Right now you might be thinking “Rebsy, what the fuck is this? THIS IS THE EXACT SAME COLOR AS THE LAST ONE!” Well, first of all, don’t yell at me, I’m very fragile and sensitive. Second, they’re actually NOT the same color, and I’m about to show you in a second.
L.U.V. is a “rich violet” shade, whereas Susperia was a “bright lavender” which is a huge fucking difference, bro.
But seriously, when comparing the two side-by-side, it’s noticeable how L.U.V. has more of a mauve-y pink undertone to it, whereas Susperia looks more muted. Even without the slight photo lighting enhancement, the richness of the violet is much more noticeable than with Susperia.
L.U.V. is an amazing color to wear in the spring, whereas Susperia could work in any season, even in the winter. However, L.U.V. might be a bit too bright for those of you that are fans of muted colors, especially if you’re either really pale or really dark.
Another thing that’s similar to Susperia is how lightweight L.U.V. feels on the lips. Like Susperia, L.U.V. feels like it’s barely there once it has dried up. It also doesn’t look streaky and doesn’t require much reapplication.
L.U.V. might be slightly similar to Susperia, but I would still recommend it to those who are huge fans of purple lipsticks and are looking to add more variety.
I’m not gonna lie, the name of this shade makes me a little uncomfortable.
Underage Red is supposed to be a “bright crimson.” I have to say that it does look like a bright neutral, classic shade of red.
I can’t help but think of Marilyn Monroe while looking at Underage Red.
This shade reminds me of MAC’s “Russian Red” in terms of how they both look like they have an orange undertone. I think that this color will go well with any skin tone. I realize I’ve said this about many of the shades on here, but this truly does look neutral enough to go well with any skin tone. It’s also very lightweight, like most of the other shades.
Personally, though, I don’t think it looks that great on me. Perhaps I’m just used to wearing darker shades, but it just seems too bright and warm for my skin.
But if you’re looking for a classic color, then you’ll probably like Underage Red.
I’m still not sure how to feel about the name, though.
Once again, you might find yourself feeling the way you did when I showed you Susperia and L.U.V. Again, you might be going “seriously, Rebsy, these are the freaking same!” And to be honest, I think I’d have to agree with you.
Unlike Underage Red, Outlaw is supposed to be a “brick red.” However, I really don’t see much of a difference between the two shades. The only time I see anything different is when I’m in a bright room, and it’s only then that Outlaw looks a tiny bit darker in its container. There isn’t much of a difference to be found other than that.
Again, I think this would look great on any skin tone. But it still looks a bit too warm for my taste.
If you’re debating on whether to buy Underage Red or Outlaw, I wouldn’t stress too much, because you’re basically getting the same shade.
This shade… oh my god.
Nosferatu is a pretty dark, rich, deep red.
It almost looks like blood (or tomato sauce if you wanna be less creepy). I believe this shade is also neutral, but it could be on the warmer side, depending on how you look at it. For people with lighter skin, you might not like this shade because it is very dark and dramatic. I believe that this color would look amazing on people with darker skin. Nosferatu is also pretty light. I wouldn’t say it’s as light as Susperia and L.U.V., but it still feels pretty light nonetheless.
Personally, I love this shade.
It is my go-to red. I wear it no matter what look I’m doing with the rest of my face. It’s just such a deep, rich, sexy red and I feel amazing whenever I wear it.
If you find that Underage Red or Outlaw are too bright for you, then I would definitely recommend trying out this shade.
As far as I know, Echo is the only blue that’s currently in the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick line.
Rubbing off all these liquid lipsticks has caused my skin to look irritated at this point. Therefore, Echo looks like a blue with a purple undertone.
However, Echo is supposed to be a “satin navy blue.”
This is a very pretty color, but it is very dark and dramatic. It’s not something that I think would be good to wear at work, church, or at some other formal event. I would say that this color would look good with almost any skin tone, but again, this is a color that not a lot of people wear on a consistent basis, myself included.
Another thing I should mention is that this seems to be one of the few shades that are a little streaky. Therefore, you might have to reapply a couple of times in order to get the full pigmentation.
I like Echo, but as I said before, it’s not a color that I wear every day. I only use this shade whenever I want to go with a more dramatic, mystical-mermaid look.
If you want some bold, blue-ass lips, by all means, go ahead and check this shade out. It’s definitely a nice color if you want something dark and vampy, yet fun.
This is perhaps the most amazing name ever given to lipstick.
Black lipstick is probably the boldest of the bold. A lot of people seem to be afraid of wearing black lipsticks, which is understandable to an extent. At the same time, I feel that this black lipstick, in particular, looks great on all skin tones. It all is just a matter of how brave/bold you are when it comes to makeup.
If you’re someone who doesn’t like to wear bold colors, then I would not recommend this lipstick to you for obvious reasons.
No matter what kind of look you’re doing, whether you want soft or dramatic eyeshadow, this color is going to stand out. If you’re pale like me, you might look a little gothic, or like Brandon Lee in “The Crow” (R.I.P.), but if you’re okay with that, then you should have no problem wearing this lipstick.
But what I particularly like about this lipstick and black lipstick, in general, is how good it is to use for creating ombre looks. I’ve used this with purple, blue, and red. No matter what I use, I always fall in love with the results. But again, it always does end up looking very dramatic.
The only complaint I have about Witches is that it is a bit streaky.
I do find myself having to apply a few extra coats just so that the lipstick will look smooth and even on my lips. Of all the black lipsticks I’ve ever owned, this one doesn’t seem to be the blackest, if that makes sense. It does look a little faded until I add more layers on top of each other. This, in turn, makes the lipstick feel more weighty because of the numerous applications, but that’s the price I’m willing to pay for Brandon Lee lips, damn it!
Feeling bold? Wanna release your inner goth? Or do you want to try some Brandon Lee inspired make-up? Then Witches would probably be great for you.
I really like Witches, it’s not the best lipstick, but it’s definitely a lot of fun!
My lips feel like they’re on fire.
Here are my final thoughts on the KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks.
- I don’t understand why there are basically two of the same shades in the collection (looking at you, Underage Red and Outlaw)
- A couple of the shades are streaky (Echo and Witches)
- I wouldn’t say they stay on perfectly for 24-hours; the shades do fade a little after a few hours, especially if you’ve been doing mouth-oriented activities
- These are expensive
- The packaging is gorgeous
- Pretty much all of the shades have a lot of pigmentation
- The applicator has a nice shape and makes outlining the lips very easy
- Most of the shades are very lightweight, especially Susperia and L.U.V.
- Based on a little research, the shades seem to suit a wide variety of skin tones
- Doesn’t make my skin itchy or feel like it’s burning
- Overall, the formula is pretty high-quality

That concludes KVD Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks Part One
As I said at the beginning, I’ll make more posts as I add more shades to my collection. Until then, I really do think that despite how expensive these lipsticks are, they’re really good quality. I plan to do a post on inexpensive lipsticks in the future.
