KAT VON D Autograph Liner Set


Kat Von D Autograph Liner Set retails for $32 USD ($38 CAD) and features eight pencil liners (0.028 oz.). The set itself is limited-edition, but all of the shades are part of the permanent range. It is said to be "an eight-piece, limited-edition set of mini waterproof eyeliners in an array of versatile shades."

Immortal Love is described as a espresso. [P] 
Puro Amor is described as a matte black. [P]
Black Metal Love is described as a black w/ silver sparkle. [P]
Piaf is described as a gray-purple with pink pearl. [P]
Homie is described as a bright purple. [P] 
D.R.A. is described as a electric blue. [P] 
Proud Peacock is described as a deep gray-green. [P]
Eyegasm is described as a iridescent mint green. [P]

"Sweep on ultra-bold, pigment-packed eye looks with these long-lasting eyeliners. Formulated with moisturizing, natural antioxidants, Autograph Liners are infused with jojoba to nourish the delicate skin around eyes, vitamins E and C to protect against signs of aging, and cottonseed oil for that extra touch of conditioning power. These mini Waterproof Autograph Pencils are velvety smooth, and glide along the lash line for effortless application that's layerable and easily blendable—leaving a vibrant, run-resistant finish that will last for up to eight hours. From natural earth tones to vibrant brights, these stunning shades can be mixed and matched to create completely unique eye looks. Packed with natural hydrating ingredients, these ultra-portable eye pencils are perfect for on-the-go application."
The Autograph Pencils retail for $10 USD ($13 CAD) and contain 0.028 oz. of product. The pencils in this set are the same size, making this an $80 USD ($104 CAD) value  which is a steal.

The set came packaged in a cheap, clear plastic bag with the brands logo printed on the front and a black back. In a whole, it gives off a very last minute, thrown together feel  like they wanted to push out left over stock. All of the pencils are wrapped in a safety wrapper which is nice though, as it reassures you weren't mistakenly sent returned or used products. (Not going to lie, I considered this at first, too!)

All eight pencils have a waxy texture, making the product glide-on easily without tugging or pulling at the skin. But while they are waxy, I did notice they broke easily and not in the soft, creamy pencil kind of way. Two of the eight pencils broke during swatching, like the product had started to dried out. They do require quite a bit of building for a more opaque coverage, but the majority still applied uneven in areas regardless to how much you layered the product. The pencils do last well and they hold up against humidity without budging, bleeding or excessive fading.

Immortal Love is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. This shade applied waxy, uneven in areas and took several passes for a mostly opaque coverage. It lasted +7 hours before fading. (3/5)
Puro Amor is a dark black with neutral undertones and a creamy, matte finish. This shade applied waxy, uneven and clung to the skin. It took several passes to have decent color payoff and wore well for +8 hours. (3/5)
Black Metal Love is a dark black with neutral undertones and silver sparkle. This shade applied extremely waxy, uneven and had atrocious pigmentation. The texture was rather dry, but the silver sparkle was noticeable. It lasted +6.5 hours before fading.  (1/5)
Piaf is a medium-dark, purple grey with cool undertones and multicolored glitter. This shade applied waxy, slippery, uneven in areas and took a dozen passes for a mostly opaque coverage. The iridescent finish was noticeable and wore well for +6 hours. (1/5)
Homie is a medium-dark, vivid violet with cool undertones and a metallic pearl finish. This shade applied waxy, uneven and took several passes for a mostly opaque coverage. It wore well for +7 hours before fading. (3/5)
D.R.A. is a medium-dark, vivid blue with cool undertones and a metallic pearl finish. This shade applied smoothly, mostly even and had great pigmentation in a single swipe. It was the best performing shade of the bunch, wore well for +8 hours and left behind a stain. (4/5)
Proud Peacock is a medium-dark, blackened green with warm undertones and a metallic pearl finish. This shade applied waxy, uneven and took several passes for a semi-opaque coverage. It wore well for +6.5 hours. (2/5)
Eyegasm is a light-medium, seafoam green with cool undertones and a metallic pearl finish. This shade applied waxy, uneven in areas and took several passes for a mostly opaque coverage. It wore well for +6.5 hours. (3/5)


Overall, the quality and performance of these pencils was disappointing. Like I said, a couple of the pencils broke during testing and the waxy texture made it difficult to layer the product since it would slide around rather than build onto itself. The Kat Von D Autograph Pencils are definitely a hit or miss judging by the majority of consumers experiences. If this set is something you'd be interested in, the value is definitely there but keep in mind, there are a lot more affordable and better quality eye pencils out there.
