I. Love. This. Liner.
After the total dumpster fire that was the entire KVD lipstick range for me, I figured the whole brand was comprised of utter garbage. But I saw the reviews on this liner and then saw it on my friend at her wedding (where she did her share of crying [good tears, okay?]) and decided to pick it up. Given Sephora's lenient return policy, I didn't have anything to lose except five minutes of my time in the event that I needed to bring it back.
But I am NOT returning this. It is hands-down the best liner I've ever used. Beats PF, Milani, Jordana, Stila - you name it.
The brush tip instead of fray-tastic felt makes for smooth, even application in every line and shape you can imagine. Twiggy-inspired thick cat-eye? Check. Barely-there lash boosting? Check. Plain ol' simple slim line? Check. So many options are opened up by using this wonderful liner.
I'm normally a loyal user of the Physician's Formula lash boosting liner because, like the Tattoo Liner, it has a pen-style package with a brush tip. But I find it just is not waterproof enough. Now that we are approaching the cooler months, my eyes get quite dry and then overcompensate by tearing mercilessly, so I need something that can stand up to that. I also have the oiliest eyelids known to man.
But this stuff doesn't budge. On top of having the easiest application on the planet, it's also truly waterproof. Oily eyelids are no match, even if I skip a primer. Tears? No worries. It doesn't flake off or smear when my eyes water. Not one bit.
The packaging is cute. I really enjoy the design quite a lot. The KVD packaging in general is quite nice.
The price is a tad steep, but with all the reviews stating how long users are able to keep this without it drying out, I imagine it'll be worth the money. And the fact that I don't need to reapply at all tells me that I'll be able to use this liner for a long time before replacing.
100% recommend, even if you are like me and have faithfully stuck to the higher-quality drugstore brands. This really is worth a splurge.
Does anyone know of anywhere in the UK who sells this please?
Can't even find a UK seller on ebay ;-(
This liner is amazing!!!! so pigmented, a true dark black. There is a slight reflective hint to this, but it appears very matte black at the same time. Honestly, one lasted me for OVER A YEAR. A FREAKIN YEAR PEOPLE!!! It's so pigmented, doesn't dry out for months and months. STAYS ON ALL DAY, I'm not even kidding. Seriously, even though this is a little pricey this actually SAVED me so much money. You get what you pay for!! 10/10!!
I have this liner in the black one called Trooper and it is amazing. The pen applicator is so easy to use ( it does take a while to get used to thought), and it has such a fine tip that it can create the smallest most precise lines. What I love most about this liner is the formula. It is so long wearing! I've actually swatched it on my hand and washed my hands throughout the day and it wouldn't come off. I wear contacts so I often use eye drops and this liner does not fade even after getting my eyes all wet. Great eyeliner overall. I would especially recommend to those who love winged eyeliner.
I got this as a sample and fell in love. SO easy to apply, the tip is thin but really sturdy and that's what I like most about it, it's nearly impossible to mess up. Color lasts all day and it's just really a great eyeliner.
I picked this eyeliner for one of my free samples recently and I love it. I haven't worn liquid eyeliner in years, mainly because my hands aren't as steady as they used to be. This eyeliner goes on smooth and it's easy to apply. With most liquid eyeliners, I would have to wipe the applicator on the edge of the tube so that I wouldn't apply too much or get too thick of a line. That's not a problem with this eyeliner because (I think) when you put the applicator back inside the tube, that's how you get more of the product. Most of the time, I can do both eyes, upper and lower, without even having to re-insert the applicator for more product. It stays on all day and well into the evening. No flaking or smudging either. Yet, it comes off easily with make-up remover wipes.
I love thissss! It so easy to work with and u can make very thin and very thick lines. It creates very black crisp lines and lasts on my eye forever until I take it off. It's super easy to take off with just soap yet it lasted on me during my sports tournaments and I was so surprised. Its absolutely a perfect eyeliner and is probably the best one in the market. The only downside is it doesn't have a completely matte effect on the eyes. From a meter away no one would ever really notice so no big deal at all but omgg I can't get over how good this is. Only 27 or so which isn't too bad since its heaven in a pen liner product :)
I bought this eyeliner for the sole reason of replacing my previous favorite eyeliner Kiss Me Heroine Liquid Make Smooth Liquid Eyeliner I got from Japan. It is almost identical to that one from the packaging to the brush and the formula. I bought this one for the obvious reason that I can no longer buy the Kiss Me liner in the United States. Previous to this Kat Von D eyeliner, I'll be honest, I've never heard of the brand. I haven't ventured out to Sephora to find new makeup brands for awhile, because I've been satisfied with all my current beauty products. However, this was a really great find. The sales associate at Sephora was really helpful and she recommended this when she saw me browsing the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. I've heard the Stila eyeliner was great for many years especially from my Asian friends. However, the sales associate was also Asian and I trusted her advice because I'm sure she understands the frustration of endless smudges (I can't wear pencil eyeliner for this reason- I've tried them all, and none of them are waterproof/smudgeproof on me). She claimed that both were the same in quality, yet Kat Von D was a bit cheaper, which is why she used it.
I know many people have complained that "this isn't waterproof" and well, it isn't. Rather, it's a really great eyeliner that smudges WAY LESS than any other brand I've used, YET it comes off well with warm water (which is the bonus because I hate using makeup remover). I find that it lasts the longest with powder/eyeshadow on my eyelids before I put on the eyeliner.
One more point, I have sensitive skin and eyeliners tend to make my eyelids a bit inflamed, but this one doesn't bother me at all! I've been using it for about 2 weeks now.
okay so I saw that these were at sephora for the rewards points and I had recently gotten amazing kat von d lipsticks so I thought why not give them a try and I got 4. These are seriously amazing. They dry super fast, dont smudge AT ALL, and are super easy to use. Just a few weeks ago I had an equally amazing experience with Kat's lippies. And im going to be honest I never really shopped the line because I thought it would be gimmicky crap but seriously it may become one of my fave brands. I really reccomend going out and buying this liner and other products from this line because they are all really well formulated and they wear like a dream :-)
It is the most AMAZING liquid liner I've ever bought (and I've bought many) it gives you the perfect cat eye with out even trying!! I tell everyone to go out and but it cause its the best ever!!
