Beauty Rave: Kat Von D Tattoo

Several months ago, I purchased Sephora Favorites Draw the Line - eyeliner sampler with my 20% VIB discount. I had been looking for a perfect eyeliner - smudge proof, long-lasting power, straight black and ease of control - for a while, and now I can safely say that I have found my ideal liner. 

I started using eyeliner when I was in high school. I remember my very first eyeliner was this automatic pencil liner from Face Shop. It smudged like crazy after several hours and left me with panda eyes, but since I didn't know any better, I sticked with it for several years. Then I turned to Etude, still a Korean beauty brand, automatic pencil liner. It was more smudge-proof even though it didn't stay very long on oily eyelids ( I didn't know that eye primer existed!). 

I had always thought that I was more of a pencil-liner kinda girl because I didn't seem to get the hang of liquid eyeliner. It was messy and hard to control , at least for the ones I have tried. Years later, eyeliners keep getting better, and I am so happy that I have found pen liner.It's not pencil nor liquid. It's more like a pen liner. It runs on ink. It's like pencil and liquid in one!

This particular Kat Von D tattoo liner is very special for me. It is smudge-proof. I have worn this from rainy days for hours, and it doesn't smudge on me. Of course, using an eye primer as the base doesn't hurt either. The very fine-tip point allows you to trace a thin line across your eyes and creates beautiful perfect cat eyes effect. 

It dries within reasonable length of time, which means that it doesn't dry too fast so it is easy to erase with a q-tip when you make a mistake, but it also doesn't try too slow that it gets messy when you blink. I don't know if that makes any sense to any of you, but it works on me. All I have here is only the sample size, and I am buying the full size for sure. 

What's the best eyeliner you've tried?
