The Perfect "Kat" Eye in Under 30 Seconds

I used to be quite intimidated by the cat eye.  The first few times I tried, one eye flicked up and the other down, one was longer or wider.  It was just a mess.  I tried tons of black pencil liners, liquid liners, felt pen liners, online tutorials, and each time I could never get both eyes cohesive, and there'd be liquid liner all over the place.   You know what I mean if you've ever been a cat eye rookie.

About a year ago I picked up Sephora's Favorites value kit for eyes, I believe it was called Walk the Line or something clever like that.  It had five most popular Sephora liners and one happened to be Kat Von D's tattoo liner in Trooper.  It changed my cat eye life!!

I cannot say enough good things about this liner!  It has the BEST tip that makes application  a snap.  It's like a hybrid felt tip and liquid liner tip, and  it  has a super fine point but a wide base. Depending on how much pressure you use and how you hold it when applying, you can get a thin or thick precise line.  

This stuff stays put! It's never smudged, smeared, sweated off, rubbed off, faded, cracked, caked, or anything else liners do.  You put it on, and it stays that way all day. 

It's so easy to use.  You just drag the brush from the outer corner of the eye to the inner and it goes where you want it.  I can now do a once difficult, time consuming cat eye in under 30 seconds, sometimes under 15.  You can create just about any shape liner super fast and easy with tattoo liner.  It's easily my absolute favorite liner!!

It's $18 at Sephora and comes in four different colors.  I can't wait to try Lapdance, a gorgeous plum. 

Have you tried this?
What do you think about Kat Von D's makeup?


  1. nice !!

  2. I love cat eye makeup! At the moment it's my go-to look, I don't suit heavy eye makeup so it's perfect for my eyes :-) I struggled for ages so I feel your pain, I've started using Eyeko eyeliner and I love it, but I really wanna try that Kat Von D one now cause your makeup looks amazing! xo

    1. I've heard of Eyeko and its awesomeness. Can't wait to try that one next! Thanks!

    2. I'm a big fan of the Eyeko liner as well. I have some of the Kat Von D lipsticks but I haven't really worn them that much. I have the Lock It foundation too but very rarely use it. Full coverage is an understatement!

  3. So pretty! i love a good cat eye! x

  4. i like the cat eye , together with some smokey eye makeup , make perfect ^.^

  5. I got the same kit and I couldn't agree more! The Kat Von D liner is quite impressive. I also have her Lock-It Tattoo concealer, which is pretty limited in shades, but if you find your match its very good!
