Liquid eyeliner can be intimidating. I know I avoided it for quite some time, but, it can be such a wonderful thing- once you get used to applying it. Granted, everyone has their off days, but practice does make perfect. One way to lesson the chances for disaster, is to opt for a pen style liner. They usually offer more control, and you don't have to keep going back for more product. One pen style liner I've been loving lately are the Kat Von D Ink Liners in Hemingway, Bosch, and Baudelaire. Black may be classic, but these shades give a little added interest to your basic cat-eye flick.


Kat Von D Ink Liners combine an easy to apply, no-fray maker tip with a highly pigmented, long-wearing formula. The felt tip is firm, but with enough flexibility to easily create smooth lines. The pointed tip is perfect for creating a precise edge and cleaning up lines, but I do find it can remove product if you go over an area while it's still wet. Luckily, these do dry quite quickly, so it's not much of an issue. The formula is said to be waterproof, ans while I do find these wear very well all day without smudging, fading, or transferring, I was able to remove swatches on my arm using water.

The Ink Liner range currently includes ten shades to suit a wide range of liner-lovers' styles. The shades I've been using are Hemingway, a medium-deep espresso, Bosch an olive green, and Baudelaire an inky navy. Bosch wasn't a shade I was totally sure of, but once on I ended up really liking it. It's a great alternative to basic brown.

Overall, I really like these liners. I've bee going through a bit of a navy liner phase, so Baudelaire has been my most used, but you really can't go wrong with any shade. I have my eye on Nietzsche, a periwinkle shade, because, well how could you not? What do you look for in a liquid liner? Tried these? Want to?
