Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner VS. Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

After a couple of years religiously using gel eyeliner, I had decided to give liquid eyeliner another try near the end of last year (2015). Since Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner was featured on a couple of my favourite Beauty Guru's YouTube videos AND had been (still is) the first eyeliner listed on Sephora's eyeliner page, I decided to give it a go. As I was still new to liquid eyeliners, I wanted to continue to explore and find the perfect one. This brought me to the decision of trying out Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner that had also been seemingly popular and a favourite of many other beauty gurus as well. Since I had used both the products for some time now, I thought it'd be a great time to do a review on the two eyeliners.

Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner

BRUSH TIP: flexible, soft on the eyelids, superfine tip and doesn't fray


BRUSH TIP: firm (feels a little harsh on my eyelids) and thin marker like tip

WATERPROOF: Yes - However, when I apply wing eyeliners, the ends do tend to wear off a little by the end of the day.

WATERPROOF: Yes - It stays on very well for the entire day!

SMUDGE: No - There is absolutely no smudging throughout the entire day.

SMUDGE: A Little - I notice a little bit of smudging each time I use this eyeliner, however it is still do-able.

LINER APPEARANCE: Dark pigment and finishes matte

LINER APPEARANCE: Very dark pigment and finishes glossy

PRICE: $23.00CAD

PRICE: $29.00CAD

My Choice:  Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner

I love how this liner has a lighter pigment and finishes matte. As I like to stick to a minimal and natural look on a daily basis, this allows me to do exactly that! In addition, since I am not the best at applying makeup, the flexibility of the brush tip allows me to apply the liner at ease. As for the wings being a little rubbed off by the end of the day, it's not a big deal to me - as long as I don't have smudges underneath my eyes, I am happy!

On another note, if it was for an event or a business meeting I would definitely go with Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner to obtain that bolder look.

I hope this review was able to provide you with a little more insight of the two eyeliners and was able to assist you on deciding which product to try out.

I'd love to hear all about it!
