Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick Review!

I must confess, I stumbled upon this amazing product by chance. I had no idea that Kat had made something so amazing! It all started when I was looking for a deal on a budget and came across Kat Von D’s Starry Eyed Makeup Pallet. I wasn’t paying attention because I had a terrible headache and was just on the hunt for something to share with everyone that was under $40. My eyes were attracted to the colors in the pallet and so after wondering around Sephora for a good 20 minutes I decided to check out with my steal of a deal! It wasn’t till I got home that I realized I had a treasure in my bag, these AMAZING Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks!

There are two different types of Liquid Lipsticks. One is the Everlasting Love which dries to a velvety matte finish and Foiled Love which dries to a metallic, foiled finish. These Liquid Lipsticks are highly pigmented and are NOT lip glosses. Many compare them to a lip stain but they come off with makeup remover wipes. They are meant for prolong wear and are pretty much non transferable (may need to re-aply after eating). The lip gloss want gives you easier application than a regular lipstick which makes it wonderful if you fight applying lipstick and tend to go outside your lip line! this is also wonderful if you want something that isn’t going to smear or transfer onto your teeth or cup, this is the product for you! I tend to drink coffee and always have issues with my lipstick coming off. This didn’t go ANYWHERE. I will keep one in my purse for work from now on!

Kat Von D Foiled Love Liquid Lipstick is insane! Not even kidding, it’s amazing! Like it’s sister, Everlasting Love, you only need a little bit and it dries very quickly. The finish is my favorite part, a metallic foil on your lips that everyone will be asking about. If you don’t like shine from your typical lipstick, this doesn’t have it! What it DOES have is an amazing metallic foiled finish! It adds a little pop to your every day look without being too bold or flashy! This liquid lipstick comes in many different shades for any skin tone so you don’t have to worry about it not fitting your skin color or needing to look anywhere else for something similar to this product!

Kat Von D’s Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick has some sort of amazing science built in that is given to us by the genius herself! I really prefer a matte lipstick during my work day and honestly, this product is absolutely wonderful! This goes on with wet but dries as a velvety matte finish! This Liquid Lipstick doesn’t transfer like your typical lipstick because it’s meant for long wear! If you’re looking for that matte finish and easier application than a lipstick, you’re reading about it! It feels like there is nothing on your lips so you don’t have to worry about it being on your teeth when you talk! Whats even more amazing is if you don’t like your lips feeling dry, apply a tiny bit of your favorite shimmery gloss to the middle of your lips, rub together and you’ve got a beautiful color with a hint of shimmer! I enjoy doing this for work and it can keep your lips moist! Don’t like the Foiled Love? Try this!

Whatever your preference is, Kat Von D’s Liquid Lipstick will give it to you. I have my preferences when going out with this on but always make sure your lips are healthy! Chapped lips and this liquid lipstick do not mix well from personal experience! Know that while wearing this, your face will make a beautiful bold entrance! Make your statement with this product!

Powder/Blush Brushes


Blush Brushes are probably my favorite brushes aesthetically. They are round circular brushes that are extremely soft and the bristles are very bendable. This allows for soft and smooth application of blush or powder. These brushes are specifically made for the convenience of blending. The correct blush brush should pick up an even amount of color and distribute it evenly on the cheeks. But which brush is best for you? Well, here are some reviews for you to take a look at for your options! The nitty gritty details below should point you in the right direction!

SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Angled Blush Brush #49– This is an angled blush brush. It does not look like your typical blush brush but it is becoming very popular with fellow makeup fans. This is a brush I use in my kit on my clients and personally. I love this brush for the contours of the face with blush or highlights. The brushes slanted circular cut gives you the simplicity in applying a contour shape that you may not naturally have with your cheek bones in a simple sweep or enhance your already prominent features which is why I prefer this brush for personal use because of my lack of prominent cheek bones. This brush is becoming more and more popular with those who are skilled in using the original powder/blush brushes. I recommend purchasing this after giving the original blush brush a go!

SEPHORA COLLECTION Synthetic Powder Brush– This is my “Go To” blush brush for my clients. It helps apply powder, blush, and highlights. Unlike the Angle Brush, this brush allows a soft lay of color on cheeks or a light application of powder after a foundation application. It’s excellent for accentuating the orbital bone with soft beautiful coverage. This brush is convenient for those who are new to using a blush brush. I highly recommend this for first time buyers or those who want an every day powder/blush brush to use.

One VS. the Other

The Angled Blush Brush is going to give you a strong contoured look with more ease than with the use of the rounded blush brush and is beneficial for photo shoots, film or for personal use if you want a more pronounced cheek bone. The Angled brush is fun for seasoned brush users and is my choice in applying my blush. A Rounded Powder/Blush Brush is what I recommend for those who are new to handling and apply blush with a tool. I enjoy the rounded blush brush because it is beneficial for a more natural look, every day use or if your cheek bones are already pronounced and you just want a bit of color added to them. Both are brilliant for highlights on the face and you can expect great results with both!

 

Sephora Pro Fan Brush #65– This brush is fan shaped to add finishing touches to your work. This brush is meant to swipe away any excess powders or fallout from shadow. It can also be used to redistribute powder that is left over. I love using this brush to apply my highlights on the face during my finishing touches or wipe away fall out from the powder brush i previously used. Many makeup artists keep this in their kit for photoshoots or movies. Not everyone is in need of fan brush but if you want to make sure your makeup has been applied evenly, this is a good brush to have in your brush bag!

How To Clean Makeup Brushes


I put together this tutorial to help explain the proper way to clean makeup brushes using a daily cleaner. This will help remove light amounts of makeup from the brush, but more importantly it will disinfect the brush. Killing the bacteria that accumulates on our brushes is extremely important! If we overlook this process, there is a high chance that you can spread infection.
