UPDATE (December 27, 2016 10:45 a.m.): The Vamp Stamp is finally (almost) here. It’s being called the Vavavoom Stamp and is available in both medium and large sizes, depending on how big you want your cat-eye to be. The tool is $25, and you can pre-order it now on thevampstamp.com. The brand told us it will be shipped to customers at the end of January (so soon!). We’ll be doing a Facebook Live with the stamp before it ships so make sure you’re following Allure on Facebook to check it out.

Some people use tape, others create a triangle and fill it in like a little diagram. The cat-eye struggles are really, really real. Well, the Vamp Stamp is now here to help you get a clean, even line on both eyes, at that perfect angle that’s so hard to do perfectly when you’re not a makeup artist. Well, the Vamp Stamp isn’t here yet, but based on some Instagram stalking we’ve done, we’re really excited to try it. The tool is literally a stamp that helps you create a perfectly even cat eye every time. If this little beauty tool does what it says it does (and it seems like that’s the case so far), it’s going to be a game changer.
All you have to do is dip the stamp into an eyeliner pot (a cream one would work best). Then you line it up to the outer corner of your eye and choose what angle you want your cat eye to be. Some people like a subtle cat eye and others want that supersharp angle–it’s up to you. Then you just stamp. It really looks that easy. See for yourself:

To get the full cat-eye effect, you’ll have to go in with regular eyeliner and line your upper lash line with the same color you used for the stamp—usually black. But it’s pretty much worth it to have the angle so precise without having to bust out the Scotch tape. Watch as other women get their perfect vintage cat-eye look in literally ten seconds.

We’ll be trying out this exciting tool soon and will report back. The brand tells us that it’s rushing production to get these babies out ASAP but are projecting a January launch. We’re really, really hoping it lives up to the hype.
