I love Kat Von D’s Tattoo Eyeliner. It is definitely one of my holy grail products that I always have on hand. However, as with all high end department store products I try, I always like to attempt to see if I an find a more reasonable drugstore dupe. This Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner, which retails for $19 was no different.
The Kat Von D formula is great, it doesn’t smudge, stays put all day, yet still comes off easily with eye makeup remover. My favorite part of this high-end liner is the super fine brush applicator. Whether you want a very thin, dainty line or a dramatic cat eye, this eyeliner will complete the look flawlessly every time.
Enter the dupe…meet the Maybelline Precision Eyeliner, which retails for $4.79 . The similarities are quite remarkable. Here is my breakdown:
Kat Von D Eyeliner: Super fine brush tip, intense black line, easy to apply, easy to remove
Maybelline Precision Eyeliner: Super fine sponge tip, intense black line, easy to apply, easy to remove
As you can see the main difference is a super fine brush tip (the Kat Von D Eyliner) vs. the Sponge Tip Applicator (the Maybelline Precision Eyeliner). For everyday use my go to is the Maybelline Precision Eyeliner, however if I am going out or need to make sure that my cat eye is completely on point I will usually bust out my trusty Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner.
