Beauty | Review of Tattoo Liner by Kat von D in Trooper.

I love wing eyeliner. Or let's say, I love eyeliner and how it looks on 99% of the people I see.
On me, somehow, it is always a struggle.
Sometimes one eye looks right on the spot but then I go try to do the other one the same way and it all goes down the hill... badly!
Or I can't get the line straight and it all becomes a hot mess and I end up looking like a raccoon. And I do not appreciate this look.
It is also worth to mention that I am really bad at making straight lines, on any type of surface (paper for example...) so it comes as no surprise that on my eyes, it is also a hard task for me to accomplish.
Oh, and let's not forget, I'm not 15 yo anymore, so my skin isn't as firm as it used to be.

Therefore, for a very long time, I stopped doing eyeliner because I just couldn't get it right, and for my day-to-day makeup, I simply couldn't make it subtle enough.
That's when I heard about the so famous Tattoo liner by Kat von D.

€20.55 (PT price) - Available at Sephora
Everyone talks wonders about this liner; it doesn't budge, it's very fine, easy to work with, and so on.
All characteristics I look for on an eyeliner, so I knew, that eventually, I would have to give it a shot.

While I was visiting Sephora, back in Lisbon (talked about it in this post), I grabbed one and gave it a little swatch. It all most "cut" my hand of so fine and precise it was.
Gave it a few seconds to dry out, and I went on my stress test: if I rub my fingers over it, will it budge or will it stay put?
Yes, it passed!!!

Throughout the day, I have the tendency to forget I wear eye makeup, and you might find me rubbing my eyes. Not cool when you do this and your eyeliner can't stay in place... Raccoon, anyone?!...

I have used it a few times by now, and I am able to do a very soft, yet precise, eyeliner look for daytime, which will stay put the whole day!!

Thanks to this liner, I have been practicing on making my wing liner more precise and even (as in, equal looking on both eyes), and even though I still have a long way to go, it gets better as I practice.
Having slightly hooded eyes doesn't make my task easier... Oh, and a not steady hand.
All things to practice and get better at.

Overall, I am very happy with this eyeliner!!
Black as black, sharp, precise, water and budge proof, and easy to handle.
Ladies & gentlemen, we have a winner!!

What is your favorite eyeliner? Do you keep your eyeliner look soft and precise or are you more of an extreme eyeliner look kind of person?
