This is a very famous and hyped up eyeliner. A friend of mine was travelling to Northern America, and she kindly brought me back of the the Kat Von D Ink Liner in "Trooper" - I might have mentioned that it looked amazing and I wanted to try it so badly!-. Now it's actually available on Sephora in France (only online for now?) so it's gonna be easier to get!
I'm so used to liquid eyeliner with a little brush, the applicator on the Kat Von D one is a bit harder than a brush, but is nice and pointy and not too thick - I never understood the point of a huge fat eyeliner tip -. You can achieve a very precise line!
I usually am not a big fan of the "non liquid"/felt tip eyeliner, because I feel like the it dries so fast and I hate buying something that dries in 30days, I get so frustrated with it, but this one did not! This lasted me a good 4/5months before was dry. Impressive!
It does not bleed on my eyelids, and I do have hooded eyes - it's often a problem with makeup -. It stays in place until I take my makeup off with oil at the end of the day. Every time I knew I was going to have a long day, or it was raining, or my eyes were particularly watery, I would use this product to do my winged eyeliner. It's very reliable!
Swatch & water test!
I wanted to show you a little test that I did. I applied the eyeliner on my dry arm, let it set, and then ran my arm under cold water then warm water, and rubbed the product with my finger!
As you can see on the first picture, it's nice and black, but definitely not the blackest eyeliner I have ever tried! On the second picture, you can see that I really rubbed it, and it still stayed on! Very good point.
+ It lasts forever and it's waterproof, does not transfer
+ Is nice and black
+ You can create a very sharp line
+ Does not dry out too fast
+ Very cool packaging
- Hard to get your hands on
- A bit more expensive than a drugstore product
- When it gets a bit drier (after a month) can hurt your eyelids if you have sensitive skin
