Review Overview

If you like getting too much of a good thing all at once, this mascara is definitely for you. Within a few quick strokes this mascara defines lashes and leaves them with noticeable volume—it even holds a curl. Well done, Kat Von D!

The full brush easily sweeps through lashes, layering well without clumping. Once this mascara sets, it wears all day without smudging or flaking. If you're going to over-spend on mascara, you want one that performs as well as this one!

Pros:
  • Defines lashes, and leaves them with noticeable volume.
  • Promotes and holds curl.
  • Full brush is surprisingly easy to use.
  • Doesn't smudge or flake once dry.
Cons:
  • Pricey.

Brand Overview

Kat Von D At-A-Glance

Strengths: Excellent eyeshadow palettes and trios; long-wearing cream and liquid lipstick; High Voltage Skin eyeshadow primer; truly lasting powder blushes and bronzers.

Weaknesses: Several pricey products; Tattoo and Dark Circle Eraser is disappointing; Lock-it Tattoo Foundation is average at best, and, unfortunately, is the only foundation option; Autograph Pencil is the only eyeliner pencil, and it’s not worth the money.

Celebrity makeup lines are nothing new—we’ve seen dozens of them over the years—but this one is a first in that it shocked us a bit. Kat Von D’s main claim to fame was her successful tattooing enterprise, and her role as a former reality TV show star. Now, she's a makeup entrepreneur, and a good one.

The line launched in 2007 with only two eyeshadow palettes, cream lipstick, and eyeliner, but since has expanded by adding several new products, including the High Voltage Skin eyeshadow primer and Everlasting Liquid Lipstick—both of which received our top rating. Also worth checking out are Sin-Full Mascara and Painted Love Lipstick. Just like most makeup lines, this is one to shop carefully; for every great product, there’s one that under performs or ends up being a waste of money.

Kat Von D’s line of makeup products is actually quite good for the most part, and far better than we were expecting. This is definitely a brand to consider assuming you’re OK with the prices and the knowledge that in most cases you can find similar and even better options available for far less. (We are not okay with doing expensive when less expensive can knock your socks off!)

All Kat Von D makeup products come packaged with the line’s signature images of roses and thorns (perhaps to reinforce Von D’s love of tattoo design), which definitely makes these products stand out among a sea of blandly packaged makeup containers.

Great "light" mascara

My lashes are very long,not thick, fine but blonde so you can't see them at all. So,found this to be a great quick mascara,just to darken the light lashes without having to be especially careful of too much going on too quickly and having clumps to "comb" out.Also a great daytime look ( esp. being 52 ), so that eyes "pop" are defined,but just make you look more awake,not overly made up.Think the nice fat long brush that comes with this might have something to do with it.Also feels very light.

This one really works well for me. You definitely do get a lot on the brush, so I find it helps to wipe the excess off . I have quite fine eyelashes with some natural curl, so I can't really comment on the mascara's ability to curl lashes. I do find it lasts quite well.
