Should This Liquid Lipstick Be Outlawed?

The seasons in London change every day. I wake up one morning in the midst of summer. The sun shines brightly in the clear blue sky, while a gentle breeze softly blows, keeping me fresh in the heat.

The next day, summer’s over. The sky is cast, temperatures have dropped, and a fierce wind is blowing. It’s on days like that that I like to wear Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw.

Outlaw is a vivid medium red, with neutral-to-warm undertones, and a matte finish. Its brightness is perfect to add a touch of colour to even the darkest day, while its mattiness screams fall. It’s the ideal shade for this kind of gloomy weather (but, of course, you can rock it in summer too).

Just make sure you have time to apply it properly. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick is a liquid stain that promises – and delivers! – full coverage. It’s incredibly pigmented, and the tiniest amount is enough to achieve an intense, opaque coverage.

That’s the pro. The con is that you have to be very careful when you apply it. You can’t just take the doe-foot applicator out of the wand and swipe it on your lips. At least you can’t if you want crisp, clean lines, which I’m pretty sure you do. For that, use a brush.

Don’t worry, you have time for that. Outlaw dries down pretty fast, but not so fast you don’t have time to work with it to achieve a pretty red lip. Outlaw is high-maintenance, but not too fussy.

Its thin texture goes on very smoothly too. It’s quite comfortable at first, but after three hours of wear, my lips start to feel dry. They don’t peel or flake, just thirst for some moisture. That’s why I like to apply Outlaw after lip balm. My lips thank me for that.

I thank Outlaw for its impressive staying power. I’m so glad I don’t have to reapply it every five minutes. Outlaw doesn’t budge until I eat, and even then it fades only from the center of my lips. Not the most flattering of looks, but it makes touch-ups easy and quick.

Now, the real problem is, what other shade should I try next? There are 27 more in this range, and they are all so tempting!


Pros: Bright matte red; Very pigmented; Longlasting; Goes on smoothly; Feels comfortable on for about three hours.

Cons: Starts to feel drying after three hours of wear; Fades unevenly after a meal.

Summary: Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw is a bright matte red with outstanding pigmentation and staying power. But it feels a bit drying after a few hours of wear.

I love the Kat Von D line! In fact I love everything about her style. The lipstick I want to try is a shade called Lolita. In fact you may have inspired me to finally go to Sephora and pick it up. 😉

Laurie, go for it. Her lippies are amazing!

Beautifully pigmented and so bold! I don’t like high-maintenance lippies! I prefer to have them fade nicely or not get around my mouth when I eat or wipe my lips because that’s happened. x.x

Janessa, it’s beautiful, isn’t it? High-maintenance lippies can be a pain, can’t they? But when they’re this good, they are hard to resist. 🙂
