FINALLY! I may or may not have said I'd review this lipstick "next week" which was about a month ago. Possibly two months. Yikes. I don't know why I waited because these (the other lipstick will be up soon!) are ah-mazing! I'm talking about the Kat Von D Everlasting Lipsticks - this post is about Bachelorette!

Kat Von D Everlasting Lipstick in Bachelorette

Bachelorette is described as a dark reddish fuchsia liquid lipstick. I know in my Sephora haul video I had the hardest time coming up with how to describe this (I blame it on pregnancy brain!) but "reddish fuchsia" is perfect. 

The consistency is a smooth, creamy and easy to apply. The applicator is doe foot which is sometimes not ideal when applying a super pigmented and opaque lipstick but it works and I didn't seem to have any issues using it. The formula is infused with vitamins A, C and E for added hydration which is nice because this has a matte finish. Personally, I didn't expect a huge difference with the infused formula but this didn't dry out my lips in the long run so maybe there's something there. I also recommend exfoliating and applying a lip balm before applying a matte lipstick just to be on the safe side.

Let's talk wear time - and how awesome it is! This lasts forever, guys. About 8 hours. Through the day, through countless glasses of water, downing a cheeseburger and fries (um, pregnant cravings?) and well into the night with barely any fade and no transfer whatsoever. It's seriously one of the best longest lasting lipsticks I've ever come across. Every time I wear this my mom fumes because it always outlasts her lipstick and she has to re-apply and I don't. I'm heading to the casino this Saturday for my dad's birthday and plan on wearing this (or Mau5 - I haven't decided) because I know I won't have to reapply throughout the entire night.
