Kat Von D Signature Brow Precision Pencil

This is my first experience of using Kat Von D make-up. Now, clearly  plenty of people have been very excited about the brand for a long time but still I’ve not actually had my hands on a single product from the range until now.

Before I tell you about my little piece of Kat Von D magic let me give you a bit of background to the brand. Kat Von D takes part in every part of her business from product development, testing formulas, naming shades, packaging design and artwork layout. It’s a bold, unapologetic, outspoken and different brand that’s long wear, high pigment and cruelty-free. She is a vegan and animal activist committed to creating hyper-performance beauty products, completely free of animal-derived ingredients, and never tested on animals.

All ethical values aside I’m always looking for products that work. So when I tried out the Kat Von D Signature Brow Precision Pencil in Taupe – I really wanted it to do a few specific things:

  1. Be the right shade. Do you know how hard it is to get a shade that will look good on fair/grey eyebrows with blonde/silver hair? No, I don’t want an orange or ash shade thank you.
  2. Come as a twist up pencil. I don’t want to waste time and product sharpening the think between each brow application.
  3. Not break when you press a little too hard. This is a difficult balance because it also needs to……
  4. Not be too hard so that you practically have to scrape off your skin to get the colour to transfer.
  5. Be fine enough to outline your brow and draw in some fine lines that replicate hairs where yours are sparse.
  6. Be broad enough to fill in colour.

So, I’ve definitely given the Kat Von D Signature Brow Precision Pencil a good work out. It’s passed enough of these measures to mean that it’s currently my go-to brow product. If I was to be super picky – and you know by know that I am – then I’d say that this would be best used along with the Kat Von D Brow Struck Dimension Powder for filling in.

I think now that I’ve started exploring the Kat Von D brand I’m likely to be trying out more very soon. Some of the 10th Anniversary range are particularly aesthetically pleasing.

Do you have any Kat Von D favourites?
