No dialog about liquid liner happens with out point out of Kat Von D’s well-known Tattoo Liner. It is a been a Better of Magnificence and Reader’s Selection Award winner many instances over, and just about any liner-wearing particular person has given it a go. It is simply actually good, going as far as to stay untouched by means of a automobile accident. It is so good that Kat Von D expanded the vary to incorporate three extra sorts of liquid liners. The girl is aware of what she’s good at, and she or he is aware of what the folks need: liquid eyeliner.

As they are saying, although, you’ll be able to’t please everybody. However that will not cease Von D from attempting. With the restricted preliminary launch of Liner X, Kat Von D will likely be crowdsourcing the brand new liquid liner’s closing components by way of suggestions from you. (I do know, it sounds complicated. It isn’t not complicated.)

So this is the low-down. Liner X is a piece in progress, a preview, a prototype. It is a pen with a versatile felt-tip pointed applicator. The ink is black as night time, waterproof, smudge-resistant and long-wear. It is much like the unique Tattoo Liner however with a barely fatter felt tip applicator — which I discover genius as a result of which means it could preserve pumping out a easy movement of ink whereas I am taking my candy time perfecting my traces and angles. I hate when liquid liner ideas dry out halfway after which one eye is streaky whereas the primary one was wonderful.

I wore all of it day, two days in a row. I prefer it. The end is a semi-gloss satin end. It isn’t that shiny per se however positively not matte. I discover that it does last more than my Tattoo Liner and the newer Dagger Liner as effectively. It barely smudged in any respect, and are available time to clean my make-up off at night time, my wings had been intact. Additionally price noting — it got here off simply with my oil-based cleanser (I am a staunch double-cleanser), which is good. Nobody likes scrubbing liner off their poor little eyelids.

It is very troublesome making use of eyeliner utilizing your cellphone’s front-facing digicam, FYI.

Actually, I’ve little negatives to report about this. The one factor I might like is for the felt tip to be a wee bit firmer. It is harder to sharpen my liner wings when the liner tip is bending all willy-nilly. The tip is a very powerful a part of a liquid liner, dare I say. That is really why I favored the Dagger Liner within the first place. Perhaps there’s room for a dual-ended liquid liner scenario — one aspect with a felt tip and the opposite aspect with a pointy brush tip. How cool would that be?

Liner X will drop solely on Sephora.com on October 19. For $20, you should purchase for your self a bomb prototype, fill in your suggestions in Sephora’s overview part and contribute to Liner X’s closing type. Kat Von D will solely be releasing a restricted quantity, which will likely be out there “whereas provides final” ( what which means). After that, you may have to attend after the trial and reformulation interval earlier than you should purchase no matter Liner X turns into in 2019. One factor for positive — it will be a vegan and cruelty-free components, as are all Kat Von D merchandise.
