Review Overview

Unless you have a white tattoo (Now that's rare!), this pale pink pencil is certainly not going to cover it up—much less "erase" it. The simple truth is that tattoos aren't easy to cover, and you'll need a product with more gusto than this dinky pencil to get the job done.

The best this pencil can do is make a black tattoo look an odd shade of gray, which is not very helpful. We don't recommend this pencil for covering dark circles either because it's stiff and tends to skip and tug as you apply. That's not only uncomfortable, but also unnecessary considering that there are many effective, full-coverage concealers available in a multitude of shades that are better suited for skin than pale pink.

Pros:
  • None.
Cons:
  • Needs sharpening.
  • Stiff texture skips and tugs on skin.
  • Ineffective at covering tattoos or dark circles.

Brand Overview

Kat Von D At-A-Glance

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

Weaknesses: A few products on the pricey side (this is a minor quibble).

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 very 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 remarkable lip products, blushes and more. Just like most makeup lines, this is one to shop carefully; for every great product, there are a few that could use improvement.

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.
