DUPE for the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

Dupe alert!

The Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper has been a cult favorite since it came out. It is the blackest black waterproof eye liner with a brush tip that makes it easier to do a fleek wing that stays put for the whole day.

From hunting for a drugstore alternative, my sister and I have come across a very similar dupe for it which is the Physicians Formula Eye Booster™2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum.


This eyeliner claims to boost lash volume, length and thickness, but I don’t see any effect for that matter. I don’t really care because finding a good dupe is always a good thing.

Both eyeliners have an identical skinny brush tip. I personally prefer brush tipped liners instead of felt tip because it’s easier to do a sharp flick with it.



The Deets:


  • Brush tip
  • Super dark and highly pigmented
  • Waterproof and smudge-proof
  • Does not budge throughout the day (speaking from a person who has very oily lids)
  • Has a spring cap


  • Physicians Formula is a tiny bit more shiny than the Kat Von D
  • Physicians Formula retails for C$17 (goes on sale for C$11) with 0.016 oz of product
  • Kat Von D retails for C$23 with 0.02 oz of product


Here’s a fancy high resolution GIF to show that both eyeliners do not smudge (HAHA):

    Oh!!! Thank you, they don’t have Kat Von D in my country and while I’m now wrapping my mind around the fact that I’ll never be able to try her Shade & Light line, now I can find something comparable to the Tattoo Liner!
    Thanks! (The gif was pretty on point)

  5. […] 4. Physicians Formula Eye Booster™2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum in Brown– I didn’t wanna worry about my eye makeup while I was there enjoying the snow, but I still wanted to look put together. This is the best solution to that. Since it doesn’t smudge and stays on all day, I didn’t need to worry about it. I also did a review comparing it to the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner here. […]
