Remember I said before that I love Kat Von D and basically everything she does? I still do. I got a gift card to Sephora for my birthday, and treated myself to a few things (as you see below, and don't worry, all will get reviewed!), one of which is Kat Von D's new mini Everlasting Liquid Lipstick set in "Smoke and Mirrors." The set contains two gray colors, "Woolf" which is a deep stone gray, and "Dagger" which is a cool dusty periwinkle gray.
You would think that these colors wouldn't be flattering on a lot of people, but honestly they're universally flattering. I love the darker gray the best, but adding the lighter gray does an ombre look, just like her other lip duo I bought. But what I love the most about it, is that I actually felt comfortable wearing such a bold lip! The light gray tones it down some so that it's not like in your face bold.
I will always have my inner goth girl inside me, and these colors bring that out, but not to the point where I feel like super goth. I've dubbed it "softcore goth." I was wearing a Beauty and the Beast shirt too, so that tamed it down some. Also, like 50% if not more, of my wardrobe is gray. The other half is black. BONUS! It will always match. Black and gray go together like PB & J, that rhymes, but it's also true.
This was $20, and worth it! Also, remember I complained before about that matteness of it? I mean, it's a matte lipstick, I knew what I was getting myself into. Applying lip balm on top works, but then your balm gets all miscolored, and I don't like that. So, I've been using a glitter lip gloss, just a smidge, on top to add a little shine and a pop of glitter, and it stays longer than the balm does that way too. The only problem is, it makes it bleed a little, not like that awkward old lady bleed where it's all over your lips, but like if your hair gets caught in it, and the winds blowing and it hits your face, you'll get little hair shaped lip color lines on your face. Minor inconvenience, especially because I like how the color looks better. The shininess from the gloss really makes your lips pop, and that bold lip becomes even bolder!
2 big gray thumbs up from me! 👍🏼👍🏼
