Kat Von D Foiled Love Liquid Lipstick in Backstage Bambi

I have one word for this stuff: crazy. I have never encountered a lip product that lasts so long and doesn't come off. I am in love.

The Foiled Love liquid lipsticks come in silver packaging, as opposed to the Everlasting Love ones. I'm pretty sure the Everlasting ones are all matte shades, while the Foiled ones are all very metallic. It seems like they kind of cheaped out on the tube, though - it's a flimsy type of plastic. I would have thought they'd use the same tubes that the old KVD Lightning glosses used to come in, but oh well.

These have doe-foot applicators, but in all honesty it is a lot easier to work with them if you use a lip brush. You want to get really precise with it, because it is a SUPER pigmented lip product, and very liquidy. It is like paint for your lips! The best way I can describe them is like the OCC Lip Tars, only more liquid-y. There is no scent to this lipstick, and once dried it feels like you have nothing on your lips - it isn't sticky or tacky, and doesn't even gather in the fine lines of your lips! It can be a bit drying, but I haven't found it to be too annoying. A balm underneath fixes that problem.

These swatches are with and without flash. As you can see, it's a pretty bright pink! Pretty much like a pink foil for your lips lol.

And now, are you ready for the real test? The following picture is what it looked like after being on my lips for 6 1/2 hours - no touch-ups, even after eating, drinking etc:
It pretty much doesn't even fade! It stays vibrant, and the metallic part of it doesn't even wear off. This is pretty much the perfect lip color and I can't believe there's not more of a hype in the beauty community about these. No matter how many "long-lasting" lipsticks I've tried, they always rub off, smear, wear-off, etc within a few hours. They have truly found a long-lasting formula with these KVD lipsticks!!

Watch my YouTube video about the lipstick so you can see me do the "kiss off" test on the back of my hand!
