Love, love, love this!!! It's a very delicate color with a highly pigmented metallic sheen that gives the lips an incredible 3-D quality without overpowering the rest of the face. Works great with a smoky eye. If they ever discontinue this, I hope I have ample notice so I can buy at least ten tubes. HG!!

Forever & Ever is a golden peach shade, that has a matt finish. The shade is in the Foiled Love collection, which means that the lipstick has a metallic gleam to it.
I bought the Star Kissed Lipstick Set last month, which features this shade. This is the only reason I own it; if I saw it on it's own in-store I wouldn't look twice at it. The gold tones and foil finish do nothing for my cool, pale skin - I look as though I've been sucking on a doorknob if I'm not careful [see above pic for my full-on look]... If I apply it lightly and blot carefully I can just about get away with it, so I've given it 3 lippies as I'll still occasionally wear it.
I love that the matt lipsticks by Kat Von D all seem to have a long-lasting finish that dries like a stain. I put in on in the mornings, eat and drink, but colour is still on my lips up to six hours later - there is no feathering, no transfer on cups, and the colour still looks even. My lips are dry, but the formula doesn't flake.

This is a very dry, opaque, metallic lipstick. I guess it's supposed to look like foiled pigment on the lips, and it does. I feel bad taking a star off because it says foiled right in the name, and I think it's unreasonable to buy one clearly described thing and expect something else, but honestly, the lipstick is a little uncomfortable.
Colorwise, it's very pretty. I am very very pale with pink-toned skin and dark pigmented lips. This covers up the color in my lips, and the effect that of a medium-light rosy nude. It's pretty, but again, the texture is kind of hard to work with. By itself, I feel like it needs to be used in a very dramatic look. Fortunately this is a near-perfect color match to Tarte's Lipsurgence in Glitzy, which is sheer and glossy. Layering them together gets me something close to a "normal" metallic lipstick, and I'm a big fan of wearing the two together.

This metallic shade is matte (needs gloss over it), very dry, and highly pigmented. I'm NC30 and this color tuned out very natural and beige on me. The only difference between this and a standard natural shade lipstick is that this one has a metallic finish. If you have my skin tone and you want a natural look, this color is good (but wear a gloss over it). Perhaps it would appear more pigmented and pinkish on a paler skin tone.
