Kat Von D Basketcase Anti-Precision Eyeliner, $23, sephora.com
The claim (in our own words): “This unique formula glides on creamy with plenty of play time so you can diffuse it and achieve your favourite look before it sets in place.”
The conclusion: “I really liked the tip of the liner! It was tapered, so I found the application line to be pretty precise. The colour was the perfect deep black; I didn’t have to layer it. That said, I wanted to test out the smudging power, so I *did* end up layering it—and it more than one sweep of my finger to smudge it in a way that I was comfortable with. All in all though, I definitely like the product and will use it again.” —Javan Keels, fashion & beauty intern
