The line is called Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks and it lives up to every bit of that name. The lipstick goes on like velvet and dries down to a beautiful matte finish. I really wanted a few shades, but knew I was just being a psycho and told myself I was only allowed ONE. I wanted Lolita but they were sold out. Lolita is a shade that would look great on almost anyone (think like a Kylie Jenner shade) so I can totally see the appeal. (Type in Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Lolita on Pinterest and see how many photos pop up). There’s 28 shades so there was a lot to pick from! I settled on Backstage Bambi which is a beautiful hot pink shade. I’m wearing it today with a royal blue dress, and this lipstick POPS. It’s bordering on being neon pink because it’s so bright, but less tacky if that makes sense. You still with me? Good.
I love this lipstick for a few reasons.
1. I love the texture. Any matte finish lipstick that I’ve tried always has a horrible drying effect. If you have dry, flakey lips like me, this is your nemesis in lip color form. This lipstick has minimal drying and that is after hours of wear.
2. I love that you can paint it on like a lipgloss. I feel like I have more control over where the product goes on my lips. I didn’t even use a lip liner and don’t think I need one. It’s very pigmented so precision is key.
3. I’m always a packaging whore and this one doesn’t disappoint. I also like that it’s super skinny and doesn’t take up a lot of room in your makeup bag.
4. The shade Backstage Bambi is shockingly pink – and it’s awesome. I, like most makeup addicts, seem to buy the same shade of pink from every brand under the sun. Enough already!! I wanted something different and fun and am happy with my choice.
After reading seemingly hundreds of reviews on Sephora.com about this lipstick, I was finally convinced to try it. And I’m so glad I did. The reviewers online said they went back to get more shades – I get it now. If Lolita ever comes back in stock, I’ll be at the nearest Sephora begging the cashier to take my money.
