Kat Von D Ink Liner
Kat Von D Ink Liner

Kat Von D Ink Liner ($19.00 for 0.019 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a waterproof liquid eyeliner that wears for up to 24 hours (I only tested for sixteen) with “bold lines with instant color lay-down.” None of the three I bought to try were that opaque, and they’re really very runny when applied to the skin, so they sometimes spread out into the “lines” on the skin (it will depend on your skin type and how your skin is in the area). The biggest issue I had with these is that you can’t intensify the eyeliner, and it’s hard to correct any mistakes, because if you go over the same area with the felt-tip, it erases the color and becomes even more difficult to get even, smooth coverage in that area.

Kat Von D Dali Ink Liner ($19.00 for 0.019 fl. oz.) is described as a “teal.” It’s a subdued, medium-dark blue-teal with a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage that wasn’t buildable to greater coverage. It is better applied over your eyeshadow (like winged eyeliner, after you’ve finished your eyeshadow look) than over bare skin, as it really had a tendency to bleed. Once dried, it lasted for sixteen hours with little flaking, and it did seem waterproof. MAC Siahi (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker. MAC Blue Peep (P, $16.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Take the Plunge (P, $16.00) is more shimmery, darker. Chanel Sweet Star (LE, $29.00) is more shimmery, lighter. MAC Mountain Air (P, $20.00) is cooler. Gucci Beauty Iconic Ottanio (P, $32.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler. Estee Lauder Electric Teal (LE, $20.00) is darker, less glossy. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Kat Von D Nerdrum Ink Liner ($19.00 for 0.019 fl. oz.) is described as a “sea blue.” It’s a muted, medium-dark blue with cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff, and it was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, but you have to be very, very careful or else it seems to erase what you put down. I had better luck trying to ramp up the coverage while it was still drying than when it had dried down. It had one or two flakes off over a sixteen hour period. MAC Deep Blue Sea (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery. MAC Mountain Air (P, $20.00) is warmer. Tarina Tarantino Glamorous Thief (P, $15.00) is more shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Kat Von D Nietzsche Ink Liner ($19.00 for 0.019 fl. oz.) is described as a “periwinkle.” It’s a brightened, cornflower blue that leans purple with a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage when applied, and it was sort of buildable, but it was difficult to get the coverage to be even if you used more than one stroke. It lasted for sixteen hours with a couple of flaked off pieces (hardly noticeable). MAC Royal Wink (LE, $16.00) is darker. NARS Most Wanted (LE, $24.00) is darker.

Kat Von D A-Go-Go Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
Kat Von D A-Go-Go Everlasting Liquid Lipstick

Kat Von D A-Go-Go Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright orange-red.” It’s a bold, brightened, neon orange with warm, red undertones and an ultra-matte finish. It’s insanely bright, and it seemed to make my entire face appear warmer/redder. It’s also intensely pigmented with little product needed for full coverage. The texture begins as a liquid and then dries down to a completely matte finish that doesn’t really budge until broken down by oil. There’s just enough time to apply and smooth out the color before it dries down. It was still going strong after eight hours, but it is somewhat drying over time. MAC Tomango (LE, $16.00) is darker, more muted, glossier. MAC Neon Orange (LE, $16.00) is darker, glossier. Illamasqua Flare (P, $24.00) is darker. NARS Iberico (LE, $25.00) is darker, more muted. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Kat Von D Jeffree Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “hot pink.” It’s a medium pink with warm undertones and an ultra-matte finish. It had good color coverage, and the texture applied with even, smooth color, but it seemed to dry down more “harshly” in a sense, as it emphasized the texture of my lips, while most shades in this formula have made my lips appear smoother. It was still mostly intact after eight hours of wear, and it started to feel drying after four hours of wear. NARS Natalie (P, $32.00) is darker, glossier. Kat Von D L’Ecole des Femmes (P, $21.00) is warmer. Anastasia Sweet Talker (P, $20.00) is darker, cooler. Kat Von D Berlin (P, $19.00) is darker, brighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Kat Von D Outlaw Everlasting Liquid Lipstick ($20.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is described as a “brick red.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark red with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and an ultra-matte finish. It had rich color payoff that went on smoothly and evenly without a fuss. It dries down quickly but you have enough time to work with the product to get clean, crisp lines. The color was still going strong after eight hours, but it began to feel drying after four and a half hours of wear. Make Up For Ever #43 (P, $19.00) is darker, glossier. Tom Ford Beauty Ruby Rush (07) (P, $50.00) is cooler, glossier. Anastasia American Doll (P, $20.00) is cooler. MAC Kinky (LE, $16.00) is glossier. MAC Opera (LE, $16.00) is cooler, glossier. Kat Von D Hexagram (P, $21.00) is darker. Kat Von D Underage Red (P, $19.00) is warmer. NARS Mysterious Red (LE, $25.00) is cooler. MAC RiRi Woo (LE, $16.00) is cooler, lower quality. NARS Cruella (P, $25.00) is darker, more muted. MAC Ruby Woo (P, $16.00) is cooler. Illamasqua Maneater (P, $24.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette
Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette

Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette ($46.00 for 0.60 oz.) includes twelve eyeshadows that are categorized into three “quads,” divided between neutral, cool, and warm (supposedly, at least). For the majority of the palette, the eyeshadow formula is consistent: very soft, finely-milled to the point where the shades feel smooth and silky, but they can be powdery at times, which means that some shades aren’t fully pigmented or may be prone to sheering out or turning patchy when blended. It’s just the type of consistency that really benefits from a primer, as it creates a smoother canvas for the shades to blend on top of, and I find that it eliminates any blending issues. They wear well on bare skin, and they tended to build well when they weren’t opaque in two to three layers. I think the palette leans warm, though there are a few cooler-toned shades in it (I categorized four as cool, eight as warm).

Laetus is described as a “creamy nude.” It’s a light beige with soft, warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a soft, finely-milled texture that was a smidgen powdery but sat well on the skin. It wore well for eight hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Lazarus is described as a “cool taupe.” It’s a light-medium, gray-leaning taupe with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a very soft, silky texture that was blendable on the lid and adhered well to bare skin (I wasn’t so sure, but I was impressed when I used it). It started to fade after eight hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Ludwin is described as a “peachy bronze.” It’s a muted, light-medium orange with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had fairly good pigmentation with a soft, lightly powdery texture that blended well but was prone to sheering out. It wore well for eight hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Samael is described as a “dusty fawn.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. The texture on this one was more powdery than other shades, and it had only semi-opaque color coverage. It didn’t layer as well, possibly due to the powdery texture. It lasted for eight hours before fading. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Solas is described as an “espresso brown.” It’s reddish, dark brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a lightly powdery, slightly thinner texture compared to other shades in the palette. I found this one to turn patchy when I worked with it, and it was difficult to really blend it out. It wore well for eight hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Lucius is described as a “soft beige.” It’s a light beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had great pigmentation with a soft, creamy, and blendable texture that stayed on for eight hours before fading. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Saleos is described as a “smoky brown.” It’s a muted, dark taupe brown with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage with a soft, but thin, consistency that wasn’t as blendable as I expected. The color itself wore well for eight hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Shax is described as a “jet black.” It’s a darkened black with cool undertones and a matte finish. The consistency felt silky, but it was dry and a little powdery for me, and in turn, it was harder to blend out. Once on, it stayed in place for eight hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Liberatus is described as a “pinkish ivory.” It’s a cool-toned white with a hint of beige and a matte finish. It was lightly powdery but managed to adhere decently to bare skin. On my skin tone, it is chalky, but it should work on lighter skin tones better. It lasted for eight hours before fading. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Succubus is described as a “rich rust.” It’s a muted, medium-dark coppery brown with warm, red undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had decent color payoff with a soft, silky texture that was a little powdery and prone to sheering out (it seemed more pigmented initially!). It wore well for eight hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Sytry is described as a “chocolate brown.” It’s a dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly powdery, silky consistency that blended fairly well but needs a little extra work. It started to fade after eight hours of wear. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Latinus is described as a “golden bisque.” It’s a yellowed beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation and a really soft, silky texture that was only a tiny bit powdery in the pan, but it didn’t look powdery on the skin. The pearly finish gave it a really luminous look blended out on the skin. It wore well for eight hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

The Spring 2015 Report Card:  The Best Products from Q1

There are so many products releasing each month that it can be hard to keep track of what was worth considering that I wanted to try putting together a quarterly overview that looks at the last three months of reviews with a best-of-the-quarter compilation. I’ve tried to group by formula when it makes sense to, and other times you’ll see specific shades or a collection. I’ve only included products that scored at least A- or higher (or else we’d be here all day!).

You can always browse all of my past reviews by rating and choose your threshold (or go diving for those F reviews) as well as view any Temptalia Recommends products. For a list of all my all-time favorites, see my Editor’s Choice Awards.

Clinique Cheek Pops
Clinique Cheek Pops are now available in eight new shades! You can check out the full roundup here, but they performed extremely well and in line with the original four released last year. All of the new shades rated A- or higher: Fig Pop (A+), Heather Pop (A-), Melon Pop (A-), Nude Pop (A), Pansy Pop (A-), Pink Pop (A+), Rosy Pop (A), Cola Pop (A+).

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer (A) is a fantastic, medium-to-full coverage concealer that covers evenly, smoothly, and wears long. I’d love to see the brand expand their shade range, as I have to mix two shades to get a good match (there are only four shades).

Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette includes three highlighters and three sculpting powders in a slim palette. The palette had really soft, silky textures, which made it easy to blend on the skin. It may be more or less useful depending on your contouring application and coloring as the palette runs warmer.

Kevyn Aucoin Medium The Sculpting Powder has an unbelievable texture that’s very soft, smooth, and blendable. The color is more taupe-like, which makes it one of my favorite hues for contouring. I wish they had more shades.
