Review: Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner in OG Lolita

DSC04378

When I heard that Kat Von D FINALLY decided to introduce lip liners in her coveted makeup line, I was ecstatic! I’m completely obsessed with her liquid liners and lipsticks, so picking this baby up during the Sephora spring sale was on my to do list!

I love wearing lip liners by themselves, especially in the summer because it’s a super simple way to give your lips a stained-lips look. I decided to pick up the shade “OG Lolita” because the lipstick version of this shade is probably one of my favourite to wear. It looked pretty online and I figured you can’t go wrong.

What I love about the packaging of this product is the fact that I don’t have to sharpen the lip liner to get more product, all I have to do is twist it (I’m all about the easy way out with makeup). The colour of the shade resembles the colour of the lip liner packaging, which is also pretty awesome because if you’re on the go, you don’t have to waste time reading the package for the names or shades.

When I first saw this in the flesh, I loved everything about it instantly. I promise I’m not being biased because this is genuinely one of the best lip liners I’ve ever tried. This product states that it’s 24 hour wear, water-resistant and super weightless when on your lips. It’s supposed to be super comfortable and not drying at all, so that you can wear it by itself or layer with other products.

When I swatched this product, I was floored by how smooth it felt. It glided on my lips so smoothly and it didn’t dry them out. When I layered it with the Lolita lipstick, I was astonished by how gorgeous it looked together! Hit up my Instagram for pics (shameless promo). The shade is a matte dusty rose, which is a gorgeous nude for me! What I loved about this the most is the fact that I did everything throughout my day and NOTHING moved. The shade stayed intact and I didn’t even feel the need to apply lip balm. I’m so impressed by this particular shade that I cannot wait to pick up more of her other shades, she’s got like 30 of them to choose from! The colour is SO pigmented. If you need a new lip liner, THIS IS IT! It retails for $22 (CDN), which is a pretty decent price for the quality of product you’re getting!

Pros:

  • Weightless
  • Matte, pigmented
  • Smooth, not drying at all
  • Great price
  • 24 hour wear, water-resistant
  • Long-wearing, doesn’t move from your lips until you use makeup remover

Cons:

  • NONE

Beauty Diaries: My Favourite MAC Products

 IMG_4724

So if you don’t know this already, now you will: I am a certified MAC cosmetics addict! This was one of the first beauty brands I had ever used, when I got into makeup and I’ve continued to use their products until now. Although, they have their hits and misses, there are a few staple products from this brand that I cannot live without. Here’s a list of the products that are absolute must-haves:

IMG_4723MAC Penultimate Eye Liner Rapidblack

This is one of the best liquid eye liners I have ever used! The colour is opaque and the best thing about this product is the fact that it’s simple and easy to use. It’s designed like a marker with a felt tip that’s super easy to control. It takes me less than 20 seconds to line my eyes with this liner and I use it everyday!

IMG_4720IMG_4721  MAC Studio Fix Foundation (NC43)

I know that a lot of people have a love/hate relationship with this product. I’ve had nothing but good experiences with this powder foundation. Since I have combination oily skin, this product keeps my shine at bay while giving me great coverage. This is one foundation I always end up using because it works great with my skin!

IMG_4715MAC Lipstick in Bombshell

This has to be one of the most unique pink coloured lipstick I have ever used or owned. It has a very nice gold sheen to it, which is what I think makes this product unique. The formula, as always, is great on my lips and I find that I reach for this particular lipstick whenever I am in doubt about what lip colour to use. I find it goes with any makeup look!

MAC Mineralize SkinFinish Natural (Medium Deep)

If you must only purchase one product from MAC, then this has to be it! This is one of the best light coverage foundations I have ever used. I use this to set my liquid foundations as well as I wear this on top of BB creams. Since it’s light coverage, it’s not cakey and it sets everything perfectly. Plus, as the name says, it looks super natural and just blends with your skin!

IMG_4718MAC Eyeshadow in Shroom

I love this eyeshadow because it’s super versatile and the shade is absolutely gorgeous! The texture and formula of this shadow is awesome. You can use this as a highlight colour for your brow bones, cheek bones and your cupid’s arrow. As you can see, this is one of my most used eye shadows because it looks very natural on my skin and it looks pretty on my lids!

IMG_4705MAC Lipstick in Relentlessly Red

I bought this coraly pinky red matte lipstick colour on a whim and I’m so glad because I’m in love with this bold lip colour! The colour is pretty unique and it’s a matte lipstick, which is slowly becoming one of my favourite formulas I gravitate towards now. Everything about this lipstick is perfect, from the colour to the longevity on my lips!

IMG_4709MAC Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in High Energy

Wearing lip liners on its own is slowly starting to become one of my favourite things to do. This particular lip liner is one of the creamiest liners I have ever used. Since it’s matte and pro longwear, I was surprised to see that my lips didn’t dry out at all. I love the colour. It’s a beautiful orangey bright poppy red, which is a perfect colour for a bold lip look!

IMG_4716MAC Nail Polish in Spice

I have been obsessed with this nail polish for a while now. This has to be the perfect blush/nude coloured nail polish I have ever come across. It looks amazing with my skin tone and it literally goes with anything. The formula is creamy and opaque. You will most likely find this shade on my nails anytime you see me, since it’s my most used!

IMG_4710MAC Mineralize Concealer (NW 35)

I’ve tried my fair share of concealers and this has to be my favourite! I use it for my undereye circles, any discoloration and blemishes. The coverage of this formula is incredible and it’s not drying at all! I love the brush tip that comes with this liquid concealer but I use a concealer brush to blend out the formula. It’s not cakey and literally binds to your skin!

IMG_4719MAC Lip Liner in Spice

Best. Lip. Liner. Ever! Seriously, I cannot even stress how much I love this lip liner. I wear this alone, I pair it with other lipsticks and it looks great! Everything from the longevity of this product on your lips to the colour is perfect! If you are looking for the perfect nude lip liner, then this is definitely it!

IMG_4712MAC Lipstick in Ruby Woo

I’m pretty sure everyone knows of this cult favourite lipstick! Ruby Woo has to be one of the best red matte lipsticks out there. I find that this shade works with pretty much every skin tone and it looks amazing on everyone! The formula of this product isn’t drying and the colour is incredibly opaque, which is why this is one of my favourite red lippies!

IMG_4704MAC Lip Glass in Pink Lemonade

I’m not a huge lip gloss girl, although I used to wear them a lot when I was younger; but this particular lip gloss is one gloss I reach for because it looks so pretty on my lips! It’s a coraly orange colour with shimmer so it’s perfect to wear on its own or layer on top of other lipsticks (which looks pretty great). I find that this is one lipgloss I use the most from my stash.

IMG_4708MAC Powder Blush in Blunt

This product is a new edition to my makeup drawer and all I can say is that it is quickly becoming one of my most used products! This powder blush is mainly used as a contouring powder. The reason why I love this is because you can control the colour to contour your face really well. One swipe of this shade gives you a natural looking contour, but you can also build it up for special occasions!
