The new Kat Von D Lash Liner is formulated for the inner rims of your eyes. I guess you would say it’s a pre-made version of the Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Liner as its fully liquid with a soft ended stick that picks up the liner.
When I was being shown this I was advised to dot the liquid onto my inner rim rather than swipe the stick across. I didn’t listen and got an eye full of black liquid that took a little while to clear as well as stinging a bit because I’d put far too much on (and in). So, please do, if you decide to buy it, listen to the instructions and gently dot along the rim.
I’d also say that if you have sensitive eyes, this gel/liquid liner isn’t for you – although it does give the most intense black line you’ll ever have. In terms of last, it didn’t do too badly but I think inner rim product performance, kohls or whatever, depends on how ‘wet’ your eyes naturally are. I use my Clarins kohl every day but I do have to re-apply it often more than once a day. An inner rim liner that lasts all day is the stuff of holy grail – it doesn’t exist – but these days I don’t care if it all goes a bit Chrissy Hind and smudged. It definitely has more last than a standard kohl because (thanks to clay) the product sets on the line – but like any inner rim product, it will need a bit of attention as time goes on.
It’s already launched in the US but we have a few weeks to wait til it comes here.
