After grabbing the shade Berlin a couple days ago, I decided this and the Sephora cream lip stains are my favorite formulas of long-wear liquid lip colors. They never fail me. Which is why today, I went back to Sephora to scoop up this shade (Outlaw) after seeing it swatched online and falling in love.
This is the perfect red. It's not too cool-leaning, but not super orange either. It's a true red, through and through. It's bright, but still has a good amount of depth to it, which makes it perfect for the vampy red Winter lips that I crave. Also, this makes my teeth look hella white.
The formula is consistent with the rest of the shades in this range. It's very thin and liquidy, but dries very quickly and sets to a pure matte finish. No bleeding outside my lipline, very little transfer, and the color stays true even through meals (unless it's a greasy meal, against which no lip color stands a chance). It doesn't dry out my lips too badly, and when it does start to fade (after FOREVER), it does so evenly.
The packaging, as is the case with all KVD cosmetics, is gorgeous. It's got this hard-edge chicness about it that I adore. I do like the applicator of these liquid lipsticks more than others - I feel like it grants the most control. With this shade, some detailing around the edges with a lip brush is recommended, but it won't amount to a massive amount of fail if you skip that step. Just don't apply these in a moving vehicle and you'll be fine.
$19 at Sephora, which I consider to be decent considering how long-lasting they are.
Now if they could just start stocking the shade Vampira again, I'd be happy.
I adore is liquid lipstick. It goes on as a liquid and sets in to a matte finish. I have other matte lipsticks. This by far is better than the ones I own. The ones I have goes on Matte. But my lips tend to look dry. Mine you, I exfoliate and put a little lip balm on before I apply. It is essential to exfoliate and use a lip balm before applying lipstick. Especially matte lipstick. This lipstick is matte and my lips don't look dry. They look smooth and plump. My lips feels semi moist as well. It was a clever idea to create a liquid to matte lipstick. There are an array of colors. GO TRY IT LADIES‼️🎀
These lip glosses didn't work for me, the colour ended up being patchy in some places and it looked dry and clumpy after 5 minutes.
I've been wearing red lipstick since 6th grade, at 24 years of age that's most of my life (or certainly feels like it). I've been through the good, the bad, and the oily. While the composition of Liquid Everlasting Love seems to have changed since when I first bought it (now it seems watery, although the colour is still very good) it has to be one of the best reds that I have bought.
This is the perfect pin-up/rockabilly/psychobilly/vintage red. The price point ($18 at my local Sephora) is fair and the tube lasts me a while with almost daily wears. The colour is mostly stay put however eating greasy food will take the colour off. At first I found the product to be drying, but I suffer from really bad dry skin anyways and I have found that exfoliating my lips helps.
Normally I am a one shade woman, but I have branched out and bought this product in a more neutral colour (Lolita). I will remain a loyal fan of Outlaw until the very end.
I absolutely love this product! It lasts all day so I never have to worry about touch-ups and there is also very little transfer. And it's super pigmented as well. Although since it is matte, it is a bit drying, but I always put on a lip balm before I apply it so it isn't much of a problem. Overall, it's a great product, it's a bit expensive, but it is so worth it!
This is a lovely red lip product. I own this in Berlin, and Backstage Bambi also. They are the most vivid well made lip shade ever.
I LOOOOOVE this product! I really wanted a fresh, intense, RED, lipstick! My cousin showed me this one, and it's exactly what I wanted! I find it best works with applying A LITTLE BIT of lipbalm, filling in your entire lips with lip liner, and then applying the product. It's absolutely beautiful. <3 Also, it lasts a long time, and when you stain your face with it, clean it immediately.
As much as I love kat von d, it's better to invest in l'oreal infallible or cover girl outlast which comes with an amazing glossy and fruit scented top coat. This stuff is very drying and accentuates lines on the lips. It peels if you over apply. You can apply your own Chapstick or balm underneath but there are cheaper variations of these types of lip color. Sephora even has a matte creme lip stain for $12 and works the same.
The first 2 times I wore this lip product it was absolute love. I'm a mature redhead with fair skin and major pink/red undertones and I haven't had a true red lip colour that I could wear for probably 20 years. I'm becoming frustrated with the lip liner/lip stick/lip gloss combo that I normally wear, when I try it these days in dark colours, because of all the bleeding and running into lines that's going on with my aging lips that turn down in the corners (my mother is 22 yrs older than me, and has no bleeding lines - not even in the corners ... what's up w/ that?!). I went on a search to find a stain in the burgandy red colour that I like as a go to winter colour, and came across this True Red.
On me, this really is a true red; no orange, and just a hint of a cool undertone, and very wearable on me. I strutted out of the house in this feeling fierce!! Got compliments! Loved how it brightened my whole face! I haven't got such a pow of good mood and confidence from a cosmetic in ages.
Then today I went out to lunch wearing it. Epic fail. Normally, before eating out I discretely wipe off my lip colour, then I eat, then I reapply. Nuisance, but what happened today was horrid. You *can't* wipe this off. So I start eating - dim sum - and by the end of a meal of somewhat greasy, moist food, this stuff had smeared all over my bottom lip line, bled down in the corners, and bled up into my vertical upper lip lines. OK, so I have to repair. Can't. It's now stained where it's bled and smeared too, and when I try and wipe it off, it stains my fingers. I finally had to do a major job of careful wiping with tissue, replacing foundation, redoing the whole lip, and there was still some minor staining from the bleeds, especially above my upper lip.
What good is a beautiful, fierce colour ... that ends in clown face disaster after a meal?
So so sad, but this is going back.
I love this liquid lipstick! It is the only product I have ever worn that strangers have stopped me and ask me what I am wearing, where I purchased it, and have even asked me to pull out the packaging and show them what it looked like! I personally think the packaging is all wrong, so I gave it a one. I have deemed the applicator usless and I use a lip brush to apply it. I commend you if you can use the applicator but I find it too messy and inaccurate. Also when I first purchased it liquid would seep out the top because it was too full of product! Super messy to have a bright red staining liquid all over your hands!
It can feather so I recommend using a Fresh brand sugar balm over it to keep your lips looking supple and soft. A gorgeous bright red, "Classic Hollywood glamour" as a perfect stranger described it to me!
