Kat Von D Lash Liner

No comments :
I had high hopes for the Kat Von D Lash Liner. Sadly, my opinion is very up in the air about it. This is a liquid liner made specifically for the waterline - sounds great, right? Since I've been doing makeup, I've been on the hunt for a liner that will actually stay on the waterline. So of course I needed to put this one to the test.
The applicator is very soft and has a curve to it. I really don't have any issues with this part.

Before I even got my hands on it, I had seen a video on the KVD Beauty youtube page where one of the artists was showing how to use it. You have to use a dabbing/dotting technique and not just swipe it on. Fair enough. I did just that, and it wasn't going on very dark. I've tried several different ways to get it to work for me, and I've found that drying off the waterline with a q-tip before applying it yields the best results. However, it's still quite tricky.

The problem for me is, and I've heard plenty of others say this, it's just too damn watery. It's very, VERY liquidy and therefore just wants to bleed everywhere. I have tried scraping off most of the product that's on the wand, but even that doesn't help very much. 

The wear time is awesome where you can get it to stick - it usually wants to come off at the outer corners of my eyes first. I can get 8 hours tops out of it, which is much better than I could ever get out of other eyeliners on my waterline. In that aspect, it is definitely a winner. If it were a liiiiiitle thicker, or maybe even more of a cream consistency, I think it could be absolutely amazing.
You can see just by swatching it on my hand that it's not opaque, and that's because of how watery it is. 

Unfortunately this isn't a product that I can rave about and tell you that you need to go run out and buy. It's worth a try if you're looking for something new, but I hope they tweak the formula in the future because it's just too much of a pain to work with.
