Hope you all are doing fine. This review will be on another Kat Von D makeup item from my stash. I am utterly obsessed with her makeup line and can’t help picking up more items from her line in my every other haul. This review will be on the Kat von D ink liner in the shade Bosch. I have previously also reviewed the shade Nerdrum and Baudelaire here on IMBB.
An ultra-rich and waterproof, felt-tipped liquid pen eyeliner for up to 24 hours of instant drama and effortless, bold definition.
What it does:
Flaunt a killer line every time with Ink Liner. The innovative, no-fray marker tip holds the maximum level of formula, giving you bold lines with instant color lay-down and stunning intensity. Remarkably easy to use, the felt tip applicator provides total control for effortless eye lining. Rock your look around the clock with this waterproof formula that delivers a fade and run-resistant finish for up to 24 hours of wear. For effortless drama, put it in ink.
My Experience with Kat Von D Bosch Ink Liner:
Packaging & Usage:
This eyeliner comes in a simple, easy to use tube with a pen style brush. Applicators like these are my favorite to use as they help give the most precise lines. You can make the thinnest line or go as thick as you like. If you are someone who is a beginner in eye makeup or for some reason struggle with it this product will be your best friend that will guide you through it. The cap attaches securely with a click hence prevents the product from drying out. The product flows out of the tip with ease and there is absolutely no tugging or skip.
Shade & Finish:
The shade Bosch is a beautiful olive – khaki green. It’s not too bright hence it creates a very subtle pop of color. I do think that this shade compliments my brown eyes. I love using this eyeliner paired with a neutral earth toned eyes (see EOTD) and for some reason that look remind me of a hike through the forest.
The finish is mostly matte (free of shimmer) but it does have a subtle sheen to it which is only detected when it catches the light in a certain angle.
Though it does deposit 75-80% color in one swipe, due to the nature and dullness of this particular shade it is necessary to build it in 2 layers for the color to get saturated.
Staying power of this eyeliner is fantastic. It lasts all day on my eyes which is usually 7-8 hours for me without smudging, budging or fading. Though it is claimed to be waterproof I would call it water resistant. Upon contact with water it does not bleed or smear but it will transfer onto a napkin if you blot. I did find the staying power to be really good even on eyelids which tends to get oily like mine.
Overall I do really love this eyeliner from Kat Von D and I can for sure say these are my favorite eyeliners of all time and I will keep purchasing them. I already have 4 shades from this range and I plan to buy rest of the shades from the 10 available too. I highly recommend these!
