This lipstick is pretty awesome if only because applying a lipgloss/balm on top does not ruin the lipstick underneath. It doesn't get cakey or patchy or budge in anyway. Sometimes a gloss or balm on top of other liquid lipstick will actually begin to break them down, so I'm happy to say this is not the case with this one!
No cracking or flaking at all! No transfer. Still looks perfect 7 hours in with no eating, just drinking water.
It does need reapplication after eating. I had a grilled cheese sandwich from Steak n Shake (aka the greasiest grilled cheese ever lol) and you could definitely see the product was fading on the inner parts of the lips. I could also see my lipstick marks on my food, just FYI.
It reapplies nicely though. It doesn't get cakey or act strange.
It is quite the task to remove, however. I have to use makeup remover or an oil of some sort. It will not rub off evenly with just a tissue and some scrubbing.
I wish I could get some more colors from Kat Von D but I'm not about to spend $20 a piece on a handful of lip products. So I began looking for dupes and came across quite a few positive reviews of LA Girl's Matte Pigment Glosses. I placed an order and shortly we will see how they stand up against Kat Von D. So if you're interested in that comparison post, be sure to follow this blog!
Thanks so much for reading about my new obsession! I hope you try out one of these liquid lipsticks for yourself! Let me know your thoughts.
