This was my first Kat Von D purchase. I’ve heard lots of good things & had some little minis here & there but when I saw this mini Kat Von D Waterproof Autograph Pencil in Eyegasm available for only $10 from Sephora I bought it on pure urge. Eyegasm looks like a gorgeous iridescent mint shade, one I’d easily fall for. Mint. Ah how I love thee. Keep reading to find out what I thought!
So I immediately swatched the pencil in excitement…& I wasn’t sure how I felt. I was expecting…more. I wanted to see a vivid pigment, like my Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Turquoise. But it isn’t…
The first photo is in natural light & the second is with flash. The left is multiple swipes to build up pigmentation. It looks sheer & patchy…not like a high end shade. In fact…not even like some of my favorite drugstore options. This just wasn’t a good texture. Maybe I got the wrong shade? Are they not even across the board? It lasted on my waterline which is great but it doesn’t really pop.
I paid $10 for my smaller size but they retail for $18 in a full size. I am wary to throw down that kind of cash after this. It looks okay on (take a look at Phyrra’s beautiful look using Eyegasm) but definitely a touch sheer.
What do you think? Have you tried other Kat Von D pencils that were better? Would you drop $18 on this shade?
