Let’s step into the cat lady confessional for a moment, shall we? Because I have a couple things to get off my chest…which is currently covered in tabby fur.
First: sometimes I think about kidnapping my neighbor’s cat Harris, and I may or may not have already concocted an elaborate plan to lure him into my home.
I know this is wrong, but I can’t help it.
Second: mostly, I like using Tarte Sex Kitten Liquid Liner because there’s a cat head on the end of it.
Look how cute he is!! He looks kinda grumpy, too, which speaks to my soul, especially in the morning.
OK…now I’m looking closely at this cat head, and I just realized that he looks a little beat up. My bad for not taking pictures of him (yes, he’s a boy) sooner.
Beauty blogging is weird, man. Most of the time I choose not to use a product until after I’ve taken pics of it first, but sometimes — LIKE WHEN YOU HAVE A CAT HEAD ON THE CAP OF YOUR LIQUID LINER — I get so excited that I forget to take the “before” pics. Then I end up with a slightly tow-up cat head.
BTW, this thing is really good! It’s a lot like Clinique Pretty Easy, which I think is the most user-friendly liquid liner out there now.
Like Pretty Easy, Sex Kitten is intensely pigmented, black and shiny, and it has a flexible felt tip that’s easy to draw thick or thin lines with. Figuring out how to do flicks with Sex Kitten was a little tricky, though. It’s slightly longer than Pretty Easy.
Sex Kitten also dries in about 30 seconds, so you won’t have to sit there humming Sweet Caroline forever with your eyes closed (ugh, don’t you hate it when wet liner transfers up into your crease?). And once it dries, not even the abrasive caress of a cat’s tongue licking your lid will remove it. Tabs can attest to this.
I like this as a cruelty-free, vegan alternative to Clinique Pretty Easy. On that note, isn’t it amazing how we have so many makeup choices these days? Like with liner, back in the day, you had two choices — black or brown. And maybe one brand. That was it.
We live in extraordinary times, people. Extraordinary times. 🙂
