As I'm sure many of you will know, Kat Von D's makeup collection has recently come to the UK. Launching in Debenhams exclusively in London, the collection is now moving northwards and has come to my local store in Birmingham.

So I recently invested in Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner because I heard it was the best thing in this mortal world. As I walked out of Debenhams £16 lighter I thought yes, my blackened smeared eyelids are a thing of the past. No longer will I have to touch up by makeup 2 hours into my shift because my eyeliner is somehow now on my eyebrows!

But, er, I was wrong.

But before I begin, I wanna say some good things about this liner: I really like this applicator, like it's the perfect shape and it's super flexible and you'll not really have a problem applying this even if you're cursed with shaky hands.
That's pretty much all I have to say, and that is at a push because I have also experienced applicators I get on better with than this.

BUT ANYWAY. I thought the clue was in the name with this liner: 'TATTOO'. But no, this gal smudges all over your eyelid just like the every other liner in this oily eyelidded woman's life. Not to mention if you try putting setting spray over this, before it dries there is gonna be black everywhere.

Not only the smudging, but this eyeliner seemed to dry out about 2 weeks after I bought it. I tested it in the shop, the line was perfect jet black and I thought fab, a black to match the look I'm going for. But alas, after 2 weeks of daily usage it's pretty much grey. Even on the odd day I can shake it enough to get a darker line, it continues to fade throughout the day. Henceforth, going against this whole 'tattoo' lark.

 Overall, £16 isn't hugely expensive for a high-end eyeliner. I'd easily pay £11 for a cheap drugstore version so this didn't break the bank like other liners might've. But compared to my old friend the Supercat by Soap and Glory, I wasn't falling in love. I don't think I'll be buying this liner again, or recommending it to a friend.
