Brandefy Review

Kat Von D brand is $20 & NYX is $9. You actually get a bit more product in the NYX liner as well. Both colors are very black. They dry down quickly and do not smudge. The liner still looks great after a 12 hour work day. Kat Von D's tip is a bit longer, therefore a little bit easier to do detail work but it doesn't make the NYX any less desirable. I would definitely suggest skipping Kat Von D's liner & just buying this one.

The nyx ink liner is the closest thing to trooper that I’ve ever found. I’d say the only difference is that trooper stands up to watery eyes better than the ink liner. But the brush and the consistency and color pay off is spot on. And it’s way cheaper!



I love both of them. The trooper liner just applies a bit better for some reason. The felt tip on the KVD just is smoother. Both worth great though. The NYX is the closest to the KVD that I have tried so far. When I can splurge I’ll buy the trooper liner. If not NYX it is! Great price for a great liner.



Both of these liners are at the top of my list. I feel like NYX has the edge here, just because it is virtually the same product, for half the price. Plus, I feel like my NXY lasted longer than my KVD



YES! I just started using this app so I typed in one of my favorite prestige items, only to find that the recommended dupe is the same exact budget-friendly product I switched to almost a year ago. These are both great products. I’m a Beauty Consultant at Target and recommend this often when we have guests looking for a great liquid eyeliner.

I think the Kat Von D is better than the NYX. For some reason, about a month or so after purchasing the nyx, it starts leaking everywhere. I'm not sure why this happens but it's super frustrating.



I love the NYX Liner. I used NYX before switching to the KVD liner (I’ve tried all her liners) and I switched back to NYX. It’s easy to put on and very black like KVD. The one thing that I didn’t like about the KVD liner is that it would Erase when I would apply another layer of the liner, it dry out fast, and would finish fas as well. The NYX doesn’t do that and I get a lot for my money.


the KVD tattoo liner used to be my all time fav, then i realized i would go through a whole one in such a short amount of time and i couldn’t afford to buy a $20 liner every couple weeks! i tried out the nyx epic ink liner and WOAH it’s just like the kvd tattoo liner but cheaper! i find it to be much more pigmented and glides smoother, and i don’t have to purchase them as often! the only problem i have with the nyx one is the packaging, the lid of this liner will sometimes pop off/not stay on tight, and most of the time, part of the brush gets pushed down into the cap and causes the product to leak a little. not something i can’t deal with though considering it’s only like $7!


My main issue with epic ink is that the tip begins to fray pretty quickly. But it’s still the best and blackest affordable liner I’ve found, and I love it! Very easy to use, and a good dupe for kvd


KAT VON D!!!!! I have both of these liners and NYX bleeds badly and is not workable. Kat Von D liner is so matte and pretty and it REALLY LOOKS LIKE TATTOO INK! You can work with it if you mess up and the pen is very precise. You get what you pay for! ?


I have both of these liners, and they’re somewhat equal. Where KVD loses out, for me, is the fact that there are no pretty brown shades in it. I’m a pale natural blonde, and look like death warmed over in black liner.


I like nxy because vaccinate your kids


I like the Kat Von D slightly better because it is more matte than NYX. Also I’ve noticed the NYX runs sometimes and Kat Von D doesn’t. Tip is easiest I’ve ever had on Kat Von D brand.


I prefer NYX. I get the waterproof liner and it goes on beautifully. Doesn’t smudge and looks great with lashes. Don’t spend the money on Kat Von D, NYX is a better product


Loving this nyx!


I had a huge issue with Kat Von D’s tattoo liner... the product inside didn’t last. The tip dried out within a couple months of using it. Mind you i put the cap back on after using. I wasted my money honestly. I love my Nyx liquid liner, but i prefer it to be waterproof. Don’t spend your money on Kat Von D when Nyx is the better product
