Kat Von D's eyeliner survives anything


Shelby Pagan wrote a review for Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner after she got in an accident wearing the eyeliner. She claims she is "never buying any other liner again." Pagan's review was titled "I was in a car accident and my eyeliner didn't budge."

Pagan was in an accident June 2017. She was on the side of a highway in Massachusetts with her hazard lights on, calling roadside assistance, when a "distracted driver" hit Pagan's car going 55 mph. Emergency responders took her to the hospital, where she stayed for eight hours, according to the review.

“My mascara was running down my face from crying and all other products had been wiped off in the transfer to the hospital,” Pagan wrote. “But not my tattoo eyeliner.”

Pagan took the photo of herself for police evidence and then posted it to Instagram, where the photo started to receive fame for how well her eyeliner looked. Since then, the review has gone viral with more than 155,000 retweets and 400,000 likes, according to Fox News.

Kat Von D is a former tattoo artist who has created her own beauty line. Her makeup is well known for reaching the alternative look or even a dramatic look. The Tattoo Liner sells for $20 on her online store.
