When I first began teaching myself makeup, I always felt more comfortable in darker, dramatic styles. I went years without finding my perfect products and favorite items because no one really made them. When Kat Von D entered the beauty world and released her line with Sephora, it literally was a god send for me! Her entire line catered to everything I had always wanted in a beauty brand, and the quality was beyond what I ever could have imagined. The detail and dedication she puts into her brand and the products she releases have been a huge part of why I love her line. She caters to those who are the outcasts just as much as the everyday beauty lovers. She makes versatile products that work as more than just what it’s intended, and the products have more meaning to them with their unique and specific names, along with the packaging and what it all represents.
You can always find Kat Von D products on Allure’s Reader’s Choice awards, Sephora’s Favorites and Top Sellers, and among the best of the vegan beauty brands out there. After years of being passionate for finding vegan beauty options, Kat Von D Beauty is now completely vegan and cruelty free. She has expanded from being sold only at Sephora to being sold in Debenhams and on her own storefront website through Kat Von D Beauty. She even has her own Pro program now! So, what are the best products in this eccentric and unique line? There are so many personal favorites that it is hard to narrow the list down, but I have below what are the best of the best of Kat Von D Beauty!
In the photo above, I used all of the below mentioned products!
This liquid eyeliner has been my go to since the moment it was released. The long-wear formula was the brush bristle tip makes it so much easier to use than any felt tip liner I have ever experienced. For beginners, it’s perfect to learn from as the release of the liquid liner is controlled by the functionality of the product. The pen form makes it easy to do the perfect cat eye or the ever-growing popular graphic styles. I have never found an eyeliner that I like more than Tattoo Liner. Don’t take my word for it! It’s also won the Allure’s Reader’s Choice Award in 2017 & 2018, and it has been in the top selling eyeliners at Sephora since it first came out. My only complaint is when I’ve run out of product!
When new colors are released in the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick formula, I can hardly contain my excitement! While I have recently learned to expand to other lines of liquid lipstick, this one will always be my favorite. No primer needed to make this product stay all day and all night. With over 40 colors to choose from, the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick has set the bar with an incredible long wear and a creamy formula that stays. Some of my favorite colors are Nahz Fur Atoo, Bow and Arrow, Hawkwind, and Plath.
Coming up with a palette that can be used by everyone, no matter skin color or age, is a lot harder than it might seem. The Shade and Light palettes for both face and eyes did just that with neutral tones that are pigmented, creamy, and universal. The eyeshadows are all gorgeous matte colors that will help you understand how shadows and lighting all comes into play when you’re working with makeup. Whether you want to define, contour, highlight, these two palettes have the perfect colors for anyone who wants to play!
One of the most recent releases of the Kat Von D line has taken the brow game to the next level! Finally, we have pomades that are brightly colored and can match any hair color you want to have! The 16 shades you have to choose from can be used on their own or mixed together to ensure your custom brow color matches to the exact color you want. Not only are the colors amazing, the product itself is long-wearing and waterproof meaning your brows are going to last. For my custom dark red brows, I mix two colors from this line, and I have a perfect match every time! I remember when these were announced, and I could not wait to try them after years of looking for something better than what I was using. (I was using Too Faced Bulletproof Brows in Taupe with Sugarpill’s red eyeshadow, Love+ on top. It worked, but I wanted better!) They surpassed the hype, and I really don’t know what I would do without this pomade!
While I could go on and on about how amazing the Kat Von D line is and how fantastic the products are, this is it. These are what I have found to be the best of the brand in Kat Von D Beauty.
