Kat Von D Hilda & Julia Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks Reviews, Photos, Swatches

Hilda

Kat Von D Hilda Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. The consistency was creamy, a little thicker than other shades, and it applied easily and evenly with intense, opaque coverage in one stroke. I loved the way it felt and applied, but the dry down didn’t appear as forgiving on the lips and looked a bit dry and “cracked” when I smiled. It wore well for seven and a half hours and was lightly drying after five hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.22 oz. – $90.91 Per Ounce

It is supposed to be a “long-wear, full coverage liquid lipstick with a smooth, matte finish.” Of the liquid lipsticks on the market that go and have a full dry-down, Kat Von D’s formula remains my favorite, as it is the easiest to apply with the kindest learning curve and lasts awhile.

Some shades are more drying than others, but typically they don’t get drying until after five to six hours of wear. They often wear anywhere from six to ten hours, depending on what you’ve had to eat or drink during the day. This formula is thin but not watery, has a longer dry down than most liquid lipsticks (but I noticed some of the newer shades dried to a mostly dry finish faster), and layers better than most (you can touch-up or add a second layer for more coverage).

It takes about a minute for it to mostly set, but it will remain a little tacky in places for up to three minutes so you’ll want to avoid pressing your lips together if it doesn’t seem totally dry initially. There isn’t a noticeable scent or taste. If you don’t mind the trade-off between very long, near-pristine wear and being drying, it’s worth checking out. As a bonus, these also come with one of the most generous amounts of products within the realm of liquid lipsticks!

Julia

Kat Von D Julia Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a medium, pink-coral with warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had good color coverage, though it wasn’t opaque in one layer. The texture was thinner and felt a bit watery compared to the other shades in the formula, and it did not apply as well either–there were slight streaks (even after it dried down) and wasn’t as easy to control overall. It lasted for seven hours and started to feel drying to me after five hours of wear.

Giorgio Armani Holiday 2017 Lip Maestro Mini Set Review, Photos, Swatches

Holiday 2017

Giorgio Armani Holiday 2017 Lip Maestro Mini Set ($55.00 for 0.45 fl. oz.) contains four miniature-sized Lip Maestros. This was another set that was devoured by the end of Sephora’s recent sale! I already had everything ready to go, and luckily, all the shades in the kit are available individually, so hopefully, the reviews can be of some help for anyone looking for specific shades rather than the set (and I’ve definitely made mental notes to cover the high-end lip sets earlier next year). The Lip Maestro formula is supposed to have a “luminous matte” finish with “8 hours of wear” and “high pigment.” All those things are pretty much on the nose–the finish has a noticeable sheen for the first few hours and eventually gets down to a mostly matte finish, and they are very pigmented and typically wear between six and eight hours on me. Most of the shades leave stains behind, but some of the very light ones don’t seem to stain.

Value

A full-sized Lip Maestro retails for $38.00 and contains 0.22 fl. oz. or costs $172.73/oz. The set contains $77.73 worth of product. Each tube contains quite a bit of product, and given how pigmented the formula is, the smaller sizes were perfect.

Art Deco (502)

Art Deco (502) is a rich, raspberry red with cool undertones and a cream finish. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, velvety consistency that spread evenly and easily across the lips and didn’t gather in my lip lines. The formula has a more emollient feel initially but then thickens slightly and feels more velvety and “clingy” on the lips (but never clingy in a bad way, as my lip lines weren’t emphasized and it did not feel drying). This shade wore well for seven and a half hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.22 oz. – $172.73 Per Ounce

The Lip Maestro Notorious formula is supposed to have a “luminous matte” finish with “8 hours of wear” and “high pigment.” The Notorious shades are inspired by “chic Hollywood glamour” but otherwise appear very similar in feel to the original Lip Maestro formula. The consistency has more slip and a velvety-smooth feel that softly “clings” to the lips, so while the finish has a glossier look for the first few hours, the color stays on well. If you’ve ever used a silicone-based primer, there’s a bit of that feel to the formula overall. Most shades last between six and eight hours on me, are non-drying to lightly hydrating, and comfortable to wear. The formula is unscented and has no discernible taste.

The Red (400)

The Red (400) is an intense, medium-dark red with cool undertones and a cream finish. It had very nearly opaque pigmentation (but I could see the shadow of my lip freckle peeking through!) that covered the lips evenly in a single stroke. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and velvety as it spread nicely across my lips and didn’t exacerbate the look of my lip lines. This shade was still going strong after eight hours of wear, and the formula felt comfortable and lightly moisturizing throughout the time I wore it.

Blush (500)

Blush (500) is a soft, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a natural sheen. The consistency was slightly more watery and thinner compared to the other shades, though I felt like eventually it thickened more like the others but took longer (an hour). It had excellent color payoff with a smooth consistency that applied evenly but there was a touch of color that sat in my lip lines initially. I was able to smooth out the color and have none of it in my lip lines after an hour of wear as the product developed. This shade wore well for six and a half hours and was lightly moisturizing.

Dolce (202)

Dolce (202) is a medium brown with warmer undertones and a soft sheen. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which went on evenly and smoothly. The consistency was lightweight with some slip and a velvety feel, though it was a bit more watery like Blush (500) compared to Art Deco (502). There was slight color in my deeper lip lines that I was able to smooth out after 45 minutes of wear, once the consistency seemed to thicken a bit. It wore well for six and a half hours before wearing away noticeably, and the formula felt hydrating over time.
