I’m very picky (and nitpicky) when it comes to eyeliners. If you wear contacts, I’m sure you understand when I say that I loathe it so much when the color migrates and clouds my vision. Secondly, it doesn’t help to possess sensitive eyes because it kills the fun out of makeup *insert tears here, haha* But telenovela aside, today’s post is a continuation of my VIB Rouge Sale haul so sit back, scroll down and decide if Kat Von D Waterproof Autograph Pencil is for you.

Individually sold for $10 (0.28 oz), I paid $32 for 8 full size eyeliners last VIB sale (unfortunately, this set is permanently out of stock… snooze you loose, le sigh)
These eyeliners are supposed to be waterproof with phenomenal pigmentation and superb staying power. They are soft and creamy, thus they are tug-free but break easily.
For color reference, Puro Amor is matte black; Eyegasm is iridescent mint green; Black Metal Love is black with silver specks; D.R.A is metallic teal; Immortal Love is matte brown; Piaf is metallic purple-gray; Proud Peacock is metallic olive green; Homie is purple.
Pigmentation-wise, all eight liners did not disappoint. They are true to description and indeed pack a punch. They don’t budge when used along the upper lash line but they do fade and migrate when applied on waterline. Waterproof claim is relative because that would depend on several circumstances: Do you wear makeup when swimming? I don’t so it’s a useless addition. Do you rub your eyes when you wash your face? I do and yes it rubs off so again, it’s not applicable to my habit. Does water equate to sweat? not exactly but if you ask me, the eyeliner I applied on my upper lash line did fade a little after 1.5 hours of non-stop fitness routine (treadmill and hiphop dance). D.R.A. and Eyegasm are my favorites because they compliment my eye color but Piaf is the fanciest. Thankfully, my eyes tolerated these eyeliners, no tears and irritation doc!
For this FOTD, I used Eyegasm on upper lash line and Immortal Love on waterline.
Have you tried these eyeliners?
