Liquid lipsticks are something that I cannot live without now. As all you would know by now, they are like a gloss but settle like a matte lipstick on the lips. They are long lasting, well, most of them, and give a very flawless, opaque coverage. Liquid lipsticks are my go-to option for a long day, when I know that i will not be able to touch up my lipstick very often.
Almost every single brand now has launched liquid lipsticks. Last year I tried out Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks for the first time. I picked one shade up from Dubai and when I came back, I regretted not picking up more. I saw a friend of mine wearing this beautiful coralish nude shade Double Dare and decided to get one for myself too.
Double Dare looks different on everyone I believe. It looked coralish on my friend, it looks dull-muted brownish nude on my sister, it looks muted brownish red on me. I had gone for a 8-9 day trip to Bali recently, and I wore this lipstick every single day, without fail. It pairs perfectly with almost every outfit.
The formula is very thin and light-weight. It lasts for a good 8-9 hours without touch up. I have had proper meals with this one on and still find it on my lips. However, after about 4-5 hours, I have noticed that my lips start flaking a bit. My lips are generally very dry. So I just apply a coat of lip balm and it looks as if I have re-applied the lipstick.
Kat Von D’s Liquid Lipsticks are one of the best that I have tried. I am definitely picking up more when I get the chance. I hope each day that we start getting these international brands in India too.
