Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

I can tell you the moment I fell in love with liquid liner; I saw Kylie Minogue on the front cover of some flashy mag (I can’t remember if it was Elle or Madison, but you get the drift) and her eyeliner was ON. FUCKING. POINT! I had to know what was going on with her eye make-up game. Now at this stage, we’re talking about 7 or 8 years ago, I wasn’t wearing make-up on a daily basis and I certainly wasn’t brave enough to try liquid liner. I’d tried it when I was working back in Japan but I just couldn’t get the hang of it and ended up like the classic meme:

I quickly honed my eyeliner game and it’s been my go-to eyeliner ’til to this day.  That’s not to say I cheat on my Rimmel – I do, A LOT! I love getting recommendations for good liquid liner and I know from experience that Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner is the SHIT!

Here’s the spiel from the Sephora website:

Achieve eye perfection with this high-pigment, waterproof liner that stays put all day for a fade-, melt-, crack-, and run-resistant finish. The superfine and flexible brush tip glides along the lashline for incredibly fluid application, allowing you to create a variety of looks with ease. Unlike traditional felt tip liners, this brush tip will not fray.

The applicator pen is super easy to use and the fine tip helps create delicate lines and an effortless flick – something the chunky nub of the Rimmel liner doesn’t really allow for. I love wearing this liner when I’m wearing eyeshadow and want to finish off the look with a simple cat-eye to change up my usual thick liner. It does last all day so it’s fade resistant, but in saying that if I were to rub my eyes then it’d definitely smudge – so it’s not 100% budge-proof.

Now my only issue is that I only bought one of these at my last Sephora haul – WTF was I thinking?!

  1. That’s my next liner to try since my beloved Tarte has been discontinued. I’ve heard nothing but great things about KVD!

  2. I’ve never tried this liner. I just realised that I haven’t been using my liner much lately because it is running out. I don’t know if I’m the only one, but if I’m running out of something, instead of buying a new one, I start saving it. Yep, I’m a weirdo.

  3. Ahh sweet! I wanna try her foundation as well. Don’t think it’s available in UK so would have to buy from US Sephora site! Could not find it in NYC though (didn’t look hard enough?!) Nice post 🙂

    • I haven’t really seen much about her foundation but if it’s as good as her liners and lipstick then I’m sold!
      Sephora is just about to open its first store in Oz, so we’re all super excited 🙂 xo
      Thanks Amy!

  4. Urgh this liner is the shiznit! Why did I only buy two on our trip?? *sobs* Ooh I love the pics dahling, they are so gorgeous! Teach meeee xo p.s. I love the subtle eyeshadow on you!
