You've probably seen my ridiculous Sephora/Ulta haul by now, if you haven't you can find it here.
Today I wanted to share the Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks swatches and review with you.
Kat Von D Packaging
I've reviewed two other shades in the past, Backstage Bambi, a neon pink and Echo, a navy blue. 
Liquid Lipsticks
The two I'm sharing with you today are Melancholia and Damned.
Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks
Melancholia is a light pink shade, with neutral undertones. I was actually expecting and hoping for it to be lighter and more blue toned, but it's just not. This is a great everyday, rosy shade and will work well through the fall season for a day-to-day quick look.
The formula on Melancholia isn't the best. It's a little patchy and streaky, so it requires more work. This one also doesn't last as long on me as the others I've tried. It's the least favorite of the 4 I own.
Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks Swatches
Damned is a black-cherry color. It's very dark, and almost has a blackberry-ish undertone. It pairs well with MAC Nightmoth lip liner, and is kind of a cross between Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream 'Transylvania' and Lime Crime 'Wicked'. It's definitely darker than Wicked, but with only one thin layer it's closer to that than 'Transylvania'. I prefer two thin layers to deepen the color to that of MAC Nightmoth.
The formula on this one is good. It applies well and doesn't need to be layered, doing so only makes the color more intense. I recommend using a corresponding lip liner with this, not because it isn't opaque but because it's very difficult to get a clean, sharp line without one. This one lasts a very long time on me and applies great. It will be a staple for me this fall and winter.
The Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks are only available at Sephora and retail for $20 each.
I recommend grabbing a few shades, you won't regret it.
Thanks for reading!
