My Experience with Kat Von D Tattoo Liner – Shade Trooper
Wow. I cannot praise this product enough. Simply an Amazing product and How did I not find this earlier.This tattoo liner is from the makeup line of Kat Von D. If you do not know who Kat Von D is, she is an American tattoo artist, model, musician and television personality, who came up with her own makeup line.
Trooper is the described as an ink black shade which could not be any more true. The liner is highly pigmented and has a rich deep black shade. Looks wonderful on the eye. It does not dry to a complete matte finish. It stayed a little bit glossy and does not lose its depth of darkness. Also the packing is so chic. It has Floral design on the eyeliner which look so pretty and am pretty sure Kat von D must have created this design herself since she is the master of tattoo designs.
Best part about this product is the applicator. The liner is in form of a marker or a pen and has a very fine tip applicator. The applicator provides even and a very smooth application. Usually I still struggle with and have not mastered the art of the perfect “Cat eye” but this liner is an outstanding product to help with that. With this liner I am able to create the most perfect Cat eyes up till now. It is a great product for people who are new to eye makeup or who simply struggle with messy eyeliners. You can make the most dramatic cat eye with this or the simplest thinnest line on the without any problem. But I do notice that sometimes it does not have a very smooth appearance but has slight cracks in it.
The cap provided with the eyeliner is very secure and when you close it you can hear a click which means it seals completely air tight which helps to increase life of the eye liner and slow down the drying. Staying power of the product is outstanding too. It does not smudge or flake and stayed impeccable throughout the day. Just like as If I had not applied it to my eyelid rather I had “tattooed” it on there. Will only come off with a makeup remover.Overall Slightly more expensive but totally worth it. Highly recommend and I will definitely repurchase.
