I'm annoyingly picky when it comes to choosing eyeliners because they have been my staple since my first day of makeup. Pens are my favourite so I'm always looking for the perfect one.Alas this one isn't. I'm aware that KVD products are vegan and so on, but cruelty-wise all industries are under strict control and animal experimentation is obsolete at this point of progress. So, I expect this claim to compete with more "industrial" ingredients..but no.I mean, it stays on for hours and hours, but the pigmentation is so off I have to use this pen just as a base for making a more perfect line, and then I write on it with another, more pigmented liner. I guess this is a bit expensive for being just a base.So, I might recommend this only to people who are not looking for the darkest line ever, but a pencil-like intensity.

Since I'm usually in a rush when doing my makeup, I love liner pens, and I prefer those with brushes rather than felt-tips--I think they give a slightly softer look. I'd been using MAC Brushbrown (has a slightly shiny finish) and LORAC Pro Liquid (unreliable component). Enter KVD. Mad Max Brown is a deep, extremely (and I mean extremely) matte brown that isn't too red-based. The component is very nice--the brush is great, the flow of product to the brush is reliable, and the size makes it easy to apply. However, I find the consistency of this liquid liner fairly thick (maybe the one I got was not very fresh), which means the brush doesn't glide across the lid as Brushbrown does. Because of this, mistakes are far more noticeable (although, in the interest of full disclosure, I have a fairly heavy hand). If I make a mistake and correct it with a micellar-water-soaked Q-Tip, what's removed can flake and fall under the eye. Also, the extreme matteness of the liner is something of a black hole--it seems to suck the light from my eyes if I do a slightly thicker line. I wish I could combine the MAC and KVD liners, because it would make the perfect formula for me. Overall, though, this is a very good, high-quality product with a great brush, and well worth the price. I don't do winged liner, but I think the brush and formula would be ideal for that. I will continue to use this in the hope that practice will improve my technique, because I really think the issues I'm having are caused by me, not the product, and will alternate with Brushbrown depending on the look I'm after. I have already repurchased.

This is one of the few quads I own, as I was able to buy it at a discount. The shades in the quad are beautiful and are flattering for many different complexions. My only complaint with the colors is that the highlighting and base shades are too similar for the intended contouring effect. That aside, the shadows are soft and easy to apply and blend. There is quite a bit of kick up when picking up the eyeshadow. The shadows are very long lasting and last even longer with primer. I would consider repurchasing this quad.

I have pale warm toned skin, dark brown hair and pale green eyes. This product gives me life! It’s certainly not for the faint hearted. Is more suited to a simple eye and cheek look. But oh my, this is a stunning lip product. Makes me feel so vibrant and gorgeous! Try this if you dare! 💋💋💋

Beautiful colors ( I have the red and the dark orange). However, I can't say I would buy these again. This does not last forever by a long shot. Left stains on my coffee cup and flaked off by lunch. I attempted a meal when I had applied this fresh, and there was none left, perhaps a super light stain, after I ate. Very creamy when applying but very tight feeling once it dried. Adding balm seems to disturb staying power further. I feel like I got totally different lipsticks than everyone seems to have purchased, because everyone else seems to love these. Bought mine at Sephora, so I have the real thing. Pretty packaging. The only reason I am not returning these is I do like the overall look of the product when I first apply it.
