Cruelty-Free Beauty: Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick


The other day, I went to Sephora with one of my beauty-obsessed sorority sisters and came across Kat Von D Beauty. I've been hearing a ton of great things about Kat Von D lately, so I decided to try out one of her lip colors since my lipgloss had worn off. I picked a dark tan color called Sanctuary, and as soon as I tested it, my sister started freaking out. "HOLY SHIT! YOU HAVE TO GET IT!" 

I've been looking for a deep tan lip color for a while, and this one was absolutely perfect. It really was my shade. I'm in love! I wasn't planning on buying anything at Sephora, but I had to buy this. And it wasn't super expensive, just $20. 

One of my least favorite things about matte lip colors is putting them on, because it can get ridiculously messy. This lipgloss went on like a dream. I was able to layer it and reapply without it looking or feeling gross. I will admit that it did feel a little sticky, but not enough that I was grossed out. In fact, I think the slight stickiness contributes to the fact that this lipgloss stayed on so well for a really long time. 

And the best part is, it's cruelty-free! I really admire Kat Von D for her firm stance on animal rights. Her line further proves that amazing beauty products can be made without harming animals.

I'm so excited to wear this lipgloss again, especially in the Fall! I'm so happy that I treated myself with this lip color. I'd 100% buy more of Kat Von D's products in the future!
