Kat Von D Fall 2014
Kat Von D Lightning Liner is a richly pigmented liquid metallic liner with a precision brush tip to help define the eyes with intense shimmering colour for unforgettably bold eyes this season. The exclusive design helps deliver sparkling colour, for a stunning metallic effect that you’ve never seen in any other liquid liner pen before. Kat Von D Lightning Liner has a click-activated pen dispenser that helps provide the perfect amount of product onto the attached brush for easy application and lining control. The ultra-fine, flexible, slightly blendable, bristles come to a fine point for precise and easy control. Its creamy, somewhat drier texture glides across the eyelid with ease to create a smooth, even line each and every time. It doesn’t pull or tug making it effortless in contouring to every eye shape. to deliver multiple looks. You can easily achieve a thin, barley there look to an intense, bold and dramatic line. It dries fairly quickly, but allows you enough time in between layers to apply a second coat for stronger colour payoff. It’s highly pigmented, with true opaque colour, with a metallic finish. Its long lasting formula provides smudge-proof and budge-proof looks that last throughout the day without fading or cracking.
Upon opening Kat Von D Lightning Liner, it’s important to read the directions on how to put it together and activate it for the first time. Although not very difficult, it is, unlike any other product I’ve tried before, so I wanted to make sure it was opened correctly. You first must remove the protector ring between the body and cap, then turn it upside down and push the cap into the body until it “clicks” into place. When going to use it, simply open the cap, twist it a few times until you see the colour appear on the brush and apply as normal. When closing the cap, make sure you hear it “click”, to help prevent it from drying out.
I often find that liquid pens don’t give the true opaque colour that I’m looking for, but after I got used to the packaging and application process, the Kat Von D Lightning Liner was a breeze to work with and the pigmentation is what I look for in a good eyeliner. Another thing I dislike about liquid pens is how quickly they dry out, I’ve been using this liner for a solid month and it’s as good as the day I opened it. I love that you only need to twist the cap once to bring enough product up onto the brush. It’s smooth, creamy, easy to apply and the pigmentation is truly out of this world. It is a wear all day liner, it doesn’t smear, fade or budge for a solid 12 hours.

Its monochromatic casing is also studded and topped with KVD monogram on the outer crown and bullet. It has a lightweight, creamy texture that almost glides and melts onto the lips. It doesn’t cling, pull or tug on the lips and applies with an even, opaque colour in a few easy swipes.
