A makeup look after a long time and in this one, I used two very popular products. Kat Von D‘s Lolita Everlasting Liquid Lipstick has reached cult status. Everyone raves about this shade and the texture so I finally gave in to the mania and got myself one. The other product is an eyeshadow from ColourPop and its called Coconut. I would have imagined something called Coconut to be a white or a brown color but ColourPop is not as unimaginative as I am so they created a bright peacock teal. Lets get down to the reviews first.
Kat Von D Lolita Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20)
I now get why this lipstick is so popular. The shade is described as a ‘chestnut rose’ and is a universally flattering color. On me, it is a light brown. It has a lightweight, mousse like texture, applies really well and settles to a matte finish. Gives good color coverage and the best part is that it does not dry out lips and you don’t feel uncomfortable. MAC’s Whirl, Spice and the more affordable Maybelline Lip Gradation Mauve 1 are close dupes though none of them are liquid lipsticks.
ColourPop Super Shock Shadow Coconut ($5)
I’ve become a fan of ColourPop eyeshadows. They are so well pigmented and have a unique texture. Coconut is described as a ‘bright peacock teal in a pearlised finish’. On me, the color looks more blue. The Super Shock shadows feel soft, creamy and kinda ‘wet’ to the touch and they are best applied with fingers. They blend easily though. The color stays for nearly five hours without creasing.
And here is the breakdown of the makeup look.
Eyes – I’ve used Coconut on my lids and water line and a warm brown shadow from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette on the crease. To highlight the brow bone, I used TheBalm Mary Lou-Manizer highlighter. Used the L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara.
Face – Mixed Bourjois Happy Light Foundation in Rose Beige with the Faces Illuminator in Champagne. I also dusted a bit of Mary Lou-Manizer on the cheekbones and used MAC Hipness blush.
