Review Overview

The fine-point tip of this eyeliner is similar in dimension to a tattoo needle—hence the name. The result of such a fine point is a very precise, smooth line. Whether or not you like tattoos, there's plenty to appreciate about this smudge-proof and water-resistant liquid eyeliner pen.

This eyeliner allows for very precise control, and is a good option for creating intricate eyeliner designs like double-winged liner. Also, if you want to venture outside the go-to black and brown options, there are a handful of other colors available.

Pros:
  • Fine-point tip is good for creating intricate eyeliner designs.
  • Very smooth, non-feathering line.
  • Smudge-proof and water-resistant.
  • Good shade range.
Cons:
  • Pricey.

Brand Overview

Kat Von D At-A-Glance

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.

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).

Not Smudgeproof, Not Water-Resistant

This smears, flakes, rubs off. It's not water-resistant, and it does smudge. I bought this pen and I regret it. It is the most over-hyped eyeliner on the market.

Easy to use and stays the day

A good eyeliner and easy to use. It doesn't fade during the day and dries quickly. If you do make a mistake, it's easy enough to take a bit of water and wipe the mistake off without it affecting the entire line. I recommend either the black or brown.
