The Only Glitter Liquid Lip You Need | Kat Von D Everlasting Glimmer Veils


If you've been on the blog long enough, you'll know I don't generally see eye-to-eye with Kat Von D lip products. I really want to like them, but I just don't - you can see my thoughts on the Studded Kiss lipstick here, and the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick here - so I wasn't jumping through hoops to try the new Everlasting Glimmer Veils that released towards the end of last year. 

I bought the shades Televator (rich purple) and Reverb (cobalt blue) on a bit of a whim a little while before Christmas. I was treating myself after payday and decided to give them a shot - I was really excited to try out glitter liquid lips, but I was worried they were going to end up being lip toppers, even after I'd Googled swatches and see the opacity of the formula.

I was definitely not disappointed when they arrived. The packaging is divine, the name of the product on the bottle is clear, so what shows through is the actual product which looks so nice. These are shorter and stubbier than the usual KVD liquid lips which I love because I find the normal Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks are just much too long in the wand for real control. The doe-foot is a nice size and shape for easy application, and I find the liquid lipsticks are opaque and don't take long to set. They don't feel drying or uncomfortable, even upon re-application, and they last well through eating and drinking - although I do top them up, they need very little work. 

I tend to use two layers for a nice, even coverage, as although they are opaque, I find they can darken a little upon second and third layers of application.

The third and final Glimmer Veil in my collection so far is Dazzle, the true red of the bunch. I bought it with Christmas in mind but ended up wearing something different. Nonetheless, I wore this when I met up with one of my BFFs just before Christmas, and it stayed on as well as the others and applied effortlessly too. So far, so good - none of the shades have any weird differentiation in formula. 

Overall, I'm thoroughly impressed with these liquid lips from KVD. Finally a line of hers I can get on board with - now I want all of them.
