When The Color is Nice, But the Formula is Butt: Kat Von D Echo Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

                                       


I just want to start out by saying that I am normally very pleased with Kat Von D's liquid lipstick formula...however, I went through hell to get this particular color to work. It was patchy, I had to put on multiple layers, and if my lips even went as far as to gently pat each other during the drying process...the color would lift from one part of my lip and transfer to another...leaving a hot mess of patchwork behind.


Now what I will say is that blue lipsticks are often hard for companies to pull of...and I was able to make it work, but for $21 I am disappointed.



Its really a shame about the patchiness of this lipstick. I mean lmbo, imma wear it. I am definitely going to wear it. But Kat Von D needs to reformulate this. 

Now the color is a little deeper than what my pictures show because I use flash photography. Echo is like a navy blue with very slight purple undertones. Like a liquid matte version of Mac Royal from Mac Cosmetics. 


I don't know. I guess I can give her a 6. Just cause she's cute? But no boo boo. I shouldn't have to spend 15 minutes trying to get a lipstick to work. Do you sense the ambivalence? Ugh, the escapades of a lipstick junkie.
Till next time. Peace Out
