Since Kat Von D's brand just landed Sephora, I'm sure a lot of you are wondering if the product is good, what to buy, if the product suits you and many other questions. So far, I only tried 3 of the products - the Tattoo Liner, Ink Liner and Everlasting Liquid Lipstick. I also did a comparison between the Tattoo Liner and the Ink Liner <<here>>. But today I am doing a separate review on the Ink Liner only.
Texture & Tips:
The liner that I have is in Trooper which is the most intense black ink. The ink glides smoothly and very pigmented. However, after a few uses, the felt tip accumulate the concealer on my eyes and the performance deteriorates. This problem happens to every felt-tip eyeliner.
The eyeliner is long lasting. It lasts the entire day from morning til night. With its waterproof feature, the eyeliner withstands moisture that emits on the eyelid. One problem I encountered is the transfer of eyeliner onto my upper eyelid. I had a hooded eye and this problem happens whenever the eyeliner gets mixed up with my skin oil and transfer the product onto my upper eyelid. I'm sure a lot of people with hooded eyelid would understand.
This is not the best eyeliner that I've tried. Mainly because I don't prefer any felt tips eyeliner, which is hard to manage and also in a long term, the felt tips won't be as efficient compared to the first few uses. And also, the first few uses weren't that pleasant due to the felt tips was hard and keep poking my eyelids. On the other hand, the pigmentation and staying power are worth to be praised of. I would recommend the Tattoo Liner (which has brush tips) compared to this one. The full review next.
