I am an avid “nudist” when it comes to lipstick, lip gloss even a lip Pencil. I am forever playing it safe these days with beiges and browns. I decided to give it a go with something out of my comfort zone… I mean, I need some type of life in this NYC Heatwave. I grabbed Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade L.U.V., a pretty vibrant violet. I prepped my lips with a coffee scrub and I applied 2 swipes of the lipstick and my face was brought to life with this pop of color. I felt confident and fearless when I saw what it looked like on me. This shade reminded me so much of the sought after limited edition MAC Lipstick in RiRi Boy (From Rihanna’s 2013 Makeup Collaboration with the brand) so if you wanted to grab that shade and didn’t have the chance to, this could be a pretty good dupe. I have not actually wore a “loud” shade in a really long time and a couple of swipes of this gorgeous floral hue made me wonder, why did I ever stop wearing Brights and Bolds on my lips. This product went on smoothly without major streakiness, however it wasn’t very bright with a single layer so I did have to double up for perfect, opaque coverage and vibrancy (As you can see the double layer swatch in both photos) .
