Back in June, whilst in Sydney getting my makeup done at Sephora, I caught a glimpse of Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Echo. It’s a gorgeous deep navy blue shade and I fell a teensy bit in love. Navy lipstick?! I’d never even contemplated wearing “non-conventional” shades of lippy before, could I possibly pull of blue lipstick? I mean, I know I’m cool, but blue lipstick cool? Suffice to say I didn’t think I was and I popped it back and crept out of the store feeling sorry for myself.
Ever since then I can’t stop thinking about it (of course!) and I’ve been wanting to pop into Sephora here in Melbourne and snap it up, but the $30 price tag deters me. $30 is a lot to pay for lipstick I may potentially only wear once! It just so happens that I was online shopping (when am I not?!) at Cotton On and I spied that they had a sale on lipstick for $3 and they had a shade called Horizon Blue – BINGO!
Hmmmmm my first thought was thank god it was only $3! This shade does nothing for my complexion and I felt completely washed out by it. It looks like I’m suffering from hypothermia! I would love to see this shade on someone with darker hair as I think being blonde doesn’t do it justice. The plus side is that it’s balm-like in texture and very moisturising and not very long lasting and came off with a gentle swipe of a face wipe – HURRAH!
It’s definitely a lot lighter and frostier than the KVD shade so it’d be like comparing apples and oranges and I’m not entirely convinced I COULDN’T pull of the darker shade. What do you think, would navy lippy would suit me?
This’ll go straight to my dress up box for any future costume parties where I’d play an alien…or Laura Palmer!
Have you ever tried non-conventional lipstick colours? Does anyone know a dupe for the KVD shade that’s a little cheaper on the ol’ hip pocket?
