The “Tattoo Liner” by Kat Von D comes in a sleek packaging with a snap on lid. The packaging is black with the brand and product information written in silver on it. The design on the packaging consists of silver tattoo-like artwork of roses and stars. The tip of the eyeliner applicator is quite sharp and precise. We found that the product travels well because of the secure snap-on lid and its convenient size.
The eyeliner has a liquid consistency and smooth texture.
The product has a faint smell.
This eyeliner is available in “Trooper Black” a deep black satin color and in “Mad Max Brown” a deep chocolate color. We tested the eyeliner in “Trooper Black.”
The “Tattoo Liner” by Kat Von D was easy to use because of the applicator brush. However, like all brushes, this applicator might not be suitable for everyone. In fact, it is not designed like a soft flatline paint brush but is rather hard pointed and narrow which is perfect for a cat eye application but not great if it is your first eyeliner.
The eyeliner is highly pigmented and is a true dark. The product is also very shiny and does not provide a matte finish if that’s what you’re looking for. The “Tattoo Liner” has a good lasting power, but it does tend to fade to a grey-black color after a few hours. The eyeliner is non-transferable and smudge-proof.
However, we found that the “Tattoo Liner” dries instantly which is not ideal when attempting to perfect a cat eye. In fact, it was very difficult to neaten and adjust the eyeliner once applied, even by using a heavy-duty concealer.
The “Tattoo Liner” by Kat Von D retails at an official market price of $20/0.5mL which is a very good price compared to other products in the same range like the “Eyeliner Stylo” by Nars which sells at $28/0.7mL and the “Darkside Waterproof Gel Liner” by Anastasia Beverly Hills which retails at $18/0.3mL. The “Tattoo Liner” by Kat Von D is also cheaper than higher end products like Chanel Makeup’s “Signature de Chanel” $35/0.5mL.
