I’ve never ventured in the “brown nude” lipstick section. It doesn’t get deeper than dusty-pink nudes and reds. But I’m currently ditching my lips but better, and opting for more defining shades. Enters Kat Von D’s Lolita Everlasting Liquid Lipstick.
As I was scanning Kat Von D’s booth with great admiration during my last trip to Sephora, I couldn’t help but notice gorgeous I’m-wearing-a-mask-not-a-face ladies swatching and getting backups of the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks. Quick, snatch one and run! And so I did.
Meet Lolita, the new member of the squad. I didn’t expect to fall in love with it and feared to end up looking like 90’s-Monica Geller: too dark for my liking. Surprisingly, the rose brown color is easy to wear on daily basis, the level of eye-look effort doesn’t really matter and could go from minimal to extravagant, it dries matte without leaving a what-is-chapstick look to the lips, and it lasts for a ridiculous amount of time (and throughout meals too, woo!).
Verdict? I’ve been slapping it on everyday. I really like it. I would categorize it as a wearable and flattering edgy-nude. However, I do believe it’s a bit flat: a pop of concealer in the centre of the lip should do the trick.
On a totally unrelated note, I’m heading back to rainy Beirut today after a month of holidays in sunny Dubai. Goodbye bikinis, and hello turtlenecks!
