Kat Von D Project Chimps Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

Kat Von D is someone I really respect, and I'm absolutely loving her makeup line! Kat Von D is a passionate vegan, and she brings those values to her makeup line, recently announcing that she is reformulating her products to a 100% vegan line. Today I'll be reviewing Kat Von D's Project Chimps Everlasting Liquid Lipstick* ($24 CAD). 20% of the retail price will be donated to Project Chimp, which is a nonprofit that works to end the use of chimps in biomedical research, as well as saving these chimps & providing them with a life of freedom and sanctuary.

"Featuring collectible packaging and an exclusive shade—called Project Chimps—this must-have lipstick is beautiful inside and out. The warm brick red tone was specially chosen because it's flattering on all skintones, so everyone can swipe it on to their lips and support the cause." - Sephora

This liquid lipstick formula dries almost instantly to a matte finish. While this isn't necessarily drying, I did find myself wanting to top up with a balm or gloss soon after applying this liquid lipstick. True to claims, this formula did last quite a while on my lips - I could go 6-8 hours before reapplying! However, this lipstick still does transfer - I was really hoping that it wouldn't!

The doe foot applicator picks up just the right amount of product, and makes application really easy. However, at times I do find myself reaching for my lip brush to get a more precise application, especially around my cupid's bow.

This brick red colour is really gorgeous, and I know that it's going to be a staple in my lipstick rotation this Autumn. I think that this colour would be flattering on most skin tones, as it's not too bright, intense, etc.

Just when I thought I couldn't love the brand any more, Kat Von D partners up with a really great cause! I absolutely love that Kat Von D is taking a stand against animal testing, as it's such an unnecessary & cruel practice that just needs to end already. This is a limited edition shade, so support an amazing cause now while also adding a gorgeous Fall lippie to your collection!
