I love a good black winged eyeliner just like any other beauty blogger out there. I draw it on my eyes every single day so I had to try out the most talked about eyeliner. That’s the Kat Von D Waterproof Tattoo Liner in Trooper (Satin Black).Let’s start with the pros. The BEST thing about it is that it has a brush tip which means it doesn’t fray and you can draw the most amazing wing EVER! The only thing I don’t like about the Kat Von D eyeliner is that it isn’t a true black. It is really more of a satin/matte black.
I have been a huge fan of Stila’s Stay All Day Waterproof Eyeliner in Black. This is probably the most used liquid eyeliner out there. It comes in a ton of different colors so it’s likely that you will find a color you love. However, the problem that I have with this particular eyeliner is that the felt tip starts to soften and fray which means I can’t draw that perfect wing after awhile. It’s like a marker, so after awhile it starts to shed a bit and lose it’s pointy-ness. The great thing about this eyeliner is that it’s the blackest black, and who doesn’t love that?
If you look at the picture where I drew the 2 liners next to each other, you can see how precise the Kat Von D line is. The Kat Von D liner is easier to control as opposed to Stila’s felt tip. Obviously I quickly drew the lines to show a comparison but it was much easier to draw a straight line with Kat Von D’s.

So which one am I going to stay with? This was a difficult decision but I really like the tip on the Kat Von D Eyeliner. You should definitely try it if you hate having your felt tip fray like me. Kat Von D also has an Ink Liner which has a felt tip. I think I will have to try that one out next month!
Let me know if you have used any of these eyeliners and what your thoughts are!
