Kat Von D Lightning Liner Swatches & Review

Kat Von D Lightning Liner

Kat Von D Lightning Liner is new to Sephora and it comes in four metallic shades.

This liner is different than anything I have used before because you have to kind of assemble it before you use it. More on that in a minute.

Currently the shades are Poe (metallic purple with violet shimmer), Hyde (metallic deep brown with bronze shimmer), Jett (metallic black with silver shimmer) and Hex (metallic deep plum with burgundy shimmer). They have a brush tip and a click-activated pen. Usually I am not a fan of the click-activated glosses or liners because it seems like you have to twist or click for an eternity to get the color out, or too much comes out. This worked really quickly and with just 1 or 2 turns you get the proper amount you need out. The precision brush feels soft and glides along the lash-line very smoothly and perfectly.

JINsoon Tess Giberson Collection Fall-Winter 2014

JINsoon Tess Giberson Collection Fall/Winter 2014 lands in stores this month and it has some seriously unique and amazing shades included.

Jin Soon Choi collaborated with designer Tess Giberson for this collection. They created shades that were “inspired by the transference of classic rugged American sportswear into contemporary, effortless, luxurious style.” In other words, they made normal colors stand out more by using shimmer and speckles, which gives them new dimension.
