Kat Von D is a dedicated vegan who doesn't test any of her products on animal. Also she's trying her hardest to find the best products so she can replace every product that is animal derived so the brand can be 100% vegan.

I don't know if this particular product tests on animals, but I know for sure that tarte's eyeliner doesn't. Tarte's "emphasEYES" eyeliner also doesn't have parabens or any other harsh chemicals, nor does it use synthetic dyes or fragrances. It's the same price as the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and has been easier to apply (from my experience). I haven't had a problem with how long either of them stay on for, despite the fact that the Tarte liner is a pencil, as opposed to the Kat, which is a liquid. Tarte still has great colours for their liners, too.. :) Hope this helps.

I haven't delved too much into it, but I believe I watched a make up guru on youtube review this liner and she said something about it not being tested on animals. I can vaguely remember because she was sort of happy about that.

Kat Von D does not (loudly) promote that they do not utilize animal testing. Most mid-range to high-end cosmetic companies no long test products on animals. A simple google search will show you a VERY long list.

No. I read that Sephora's private label cosmetics line do not test on animals and Kat Von D's makeup line is part of the Sephora private label. Also, Kat Von D is a vegetarian and just did an ad campaign for PETA, so I wouldn't think her make-up would test on animals.

It is 23$ CAD. The prices on the Sephora websites are never the CAD prices. To see the CAD price, just add it to your basket and go there and click on "Canadian Checkout". There you will see the price in CAD. It is bizzare because sometimes prices are almost the same (like for the Naked2 palette it is 50$ USD and 52,50$ CAD) and sometimes there is a BIG difference (for the Naked 1 palette, it is 48$ USD and 58$ CAD).

Mine was $18. Also, Canadian rates don't transfer straight across to the USD. Another reason for your "inflated" price could be you didn't realize shipping was added to it.

My lids are so oily that I often don't have to remove eye shadow or liner at the end of a long day - it's all gone! I wear Tattoo liner most days and always have to remove most of it - I don't usually wear an eye primer, either. It wears very well on oily skin.

You could go primer-less with this liner. It's really resilient and smudge-proof, and once the liner is dry the only way you are moving it is if you wipe it off with makeup remover. I've worn this liner on naker lids many times, and it always stays in place.

I tend to have oily lids too. I use Two Faced Shadow Insurance, but you don't have to. You can apply directly to lids or over shadow (my favorite way). It stays put and doesn't blurr or smudge off.

How can I get more of the liquid to come out of the brush upon application?
This liner is great, but for some reason i find that very little comes out of the brush tip, unless it "dab" the brush into the cap to convince more of the liquid to come out. Does anyone know how to get more to come out? I just got this product, its brand new.

Try placing the cap on and shaking it. You will hear the ball on the inside clicking. If it doesn't come out then the liner is defective. Take it back to a sephora store and exchange for a new one, you shouldn't have an issue with it.

I have noticed if you lay it across your eye using the "side" instead of the very tip you get more liquid. I don't know how you like your eyeliner, but doing it this way causes a bit thicker of a line, which I don't mind because that is how I wear mine.

I use it every day and it has lasted 3 months already and shows no signs of drying up. I am amazed at how great the tip is, it is still like new. It is black, but you can control the width of the line making it very thin and subtle or thick and doe eyed.

It is really dark and matte when dried, and it has lasted me a really long time. I was worried because this style usually runs out fast, but I'd say this one lasts longer than average. I've had it for 4-5 months and it's still going. I don't wear it everday but probably at least three times a week.

I have been using this liner everday, but since I just started using it, I don't know how long it can or will last. So far it seems to be better than any other liner I have used. depending on the look you are going for, you can put it on as light & thin or dark and think as you like.

probably not, as the product is extremely bold and inky-black. If you're looking for a Kat von D product though, leather (dark brown), and Lucifer (black) are in two of her palettes, and they both work pretty well.
