Kind of long review, so if you're up for that keep reading, if not, just know it's not worth your money. I originally went to purchase the tattoo liquid liner. I've never tried anything KVD before so after I purchased I was excited to try it, opened it in the car and went to test it on my hand and the felt tip was really dry. This can happen sometimes with a brand new felt too so I shook the pen, pumped it in the cap a few times and still nothing. I was still in the parking lot so I walked back in, the women at the register was very nice, tried it herself on her hand and said it must be a bad one. There were no more of the tattoo liner so I chose this one. Tested it in the store with the associate. It was dry at first but after a couple shakes ink started coming out. I was pleased, we made the exchange. Two days later, I go to use it this morning and I open the cap to find the cap full of ink, it covered my hands and was all over my sink. After I cleaned up I went to use it on my eyes, the tip was somehow DRY and when I tilted the pen down it leaked all over my hand. It's either so dry I can't get a line drawn, or leaking out so quickly it covers my hand. I will NOT be buying again.

This liner goes on so smooth and wears all day long. You can't go wrong

I've been using this brand for years because its the only eyeliner that doesn't budge when it's on my eyes but if i could find an alternative that would stay on i would stop using this. The liner dries out or runs out way to easily (I keep them flipped lid side down so they don't dry out as fast but they still don't last much longer) and the brush hairs lift way too easily making it hard to get my liner just right some times. I feel like if the company just put the slightest bit of care into this liner it could be significantly better.

I was hoping that with the new despicable formula for the tattoo liner, I'd find solace in the ink liner. I was wrong. Bad, if not worse than the tattoo liner. Do not get either. It's 2023. I've been using the tattoo liner for eight years. So disappointed.

I shopped around for a while but would always end up coming back to this eyeliner. It was my go-to for literal years. It was easy to apply, would last all day, was super pigmented and smooth. Plus, it made getting your cat eye flick nice and sharp an absolute breeze. AND, as a contact wearer the fact that is was waterproof (mostly) was a major plus. However, I'm not sure what the frenchtoast has happened in the last 6mos or so, but this is a hot pile of garbage now. You can't get a full line before it dries out. It's not pigmented anymore and if by some miracle you can get an entire eye, it flakes off within hours. Hot. Garbage.

Love the tip of the brush but this is def not waterproof. I bought this before vacation and it def smeared in water. The makeup forever waterproof will be my go-to

Hands down thee best eyeliner I've ever purchased! Last me about 2 months maybe?… and I use this eyeliner every single day. It's better for me money wise so that way I'm not buying eyeliner every 1 or 2 weeks for drugstore… I highly recommend the KVD liner, it's honestly the best eyeliner in my opinion! (:

Brittany from Bland, VA
I've been using KVD liners as my daily use liner since at least 2015 - I picked up a replacement in store a few days ago and it was already insanely dry as soon as I opened it. Applying it to my lids was impossible, though it would sort of swatch on my hand (but not well). After reading some other reviews, this seems to now be a common issue with these liners, which is unfortunate, because the formula was great for years.

I love it

I love this waterproof eyeliner!
I love the quality of the brush and the color.

Dry, no ink whatsoever in a brand new tube. Did they change the formula? I stopped buying this for a few years and it seems like this is remarkably different than it used to be. It's a shame, this liner used to be a holy grail item.
Nancy from Madison, WI
The ink doesn't flow well. It is too dry to put on. Also the brush is too hard, hurts by eyelid to try to apply it. Will be returning the item for a different liner.
Maddie from Toledo, OH
I really like the formula for this product. However, I didn't realize I bought the felt tip applicator- the brush is infinitely better. The felt tip does not apply smoothly and tends to pull on your eyelid, creating bumps and uneven lines. I would recommend based on the formula, but the applicaton is what knocks this down a few stars.

I was looking for an eyeliner that meets my needs and this one by far exceeded my expectations!! I had one that was given to me but it's at that stage where I had to get a new one. I wish they had more in stock because I wanted to purchase at least 3 more but thank goodness there was at least one left when I came to the store located in Regal Court.!! < 3

I have been using this for years. I even buy 2-3 at once because they go out of stock.

I had purchased one when it was Kat Von D and I loved it, but the new one did not go on at all, I was able to apply it on my wrist but only by putting alot of pressure but I could not get it to apply on my lid over my base and shadow. I had to return it,

I purchased one on my trip to MS for my 40th B day. One I ran out off .
Well it didn't work. After that I call multiple times n no help! I went to the store n did open one n try on my hand , well well it didn't work as well. While I was on my second one to open. There she comes…. I told her why n she immediately took that one off the shelf. Ok so I ask her to check another one her self. Guess what? They where all not right. She continue n found some more just like it. Now I'm standing there like I'm still holding one at home that never did work. So she blamed it on Covid. She said this one is brand new it's fine . Yes it did work for one eye then nothing. Here I am sitting with two brand new products that don't work properly.
