Everlasting Lip Liner by Kat von D in Homegirl

I wasn't too excited when I heard Kat von D was releasing lip liners, but when I realized the line had the perfect shade for my brows, I just needed to give them a go. I bought this one from Vancouver. I always use lip liner when I wear traditional wax-based lipsticks, to get more wear out of them. My go-to liners are Mac lip pencils, but occasionally I use an OCC liner or a Nyx one. The Mac liners are very dry (I mostly use Nightmoth and Cyberworld) and stay on my lips well. Kat von D's liner is very different. Where the Macs, Nyxs and OCCs are waxy and will eventually melt, the Everlasting Lip Liner goes on just like a wax based liner, but then sets and stays on much better. Much like the Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks, it is very resistant to smudging and can be removed only with oil-based cleansers (or actual oil).


Homegirl was my choice of shade, as I just never get bored of dark reds! I own a lot of dark red lipsticks so the shade works with many lipsticks, but I also do my brows with lip liner so I wanted a shade that works also for that. I have to say that for brows the liner sets a little bit too fast. I would need more time to work the pencil. The skin on my forehead is also much more oily than on my lips, so the liner doesn't stay quite as well as on lips, but it's still very good.


The pencil is made of plastic and is of the twist up variety.

The tip straight out of package.

I have to say I'm quite impressed with how well the liner stays! The shade is lovely and the packaging works well. I could happily buy this product in another shade too!

  1. I've only recently started to wear lip liner with regular lipsticks more frequently :P I might consider buying these to wear with some darker shades with which you notice fading more quickly.

  2. Good to know. I often use MAC liners, and recently I've tried NYX but I will have to give this a go. Sounds like it has a lot of staying power!
