this is the blackest black Kohl pencil I have ever bought, I got tired of my Inglot gel liner and was looking for something that will give me the same dark eyes. This one is super soft and creamy to apply, doesn't put any strain on the delicate eye area, sets really fast and absolutely no smudges, which is my biggest problem using a Kohl pencil. One thing is that it doesn't last that long, the inglot gel liner lasted for about 6 months for me but I don't think this one will go beyond a month as I wear it everyday.
I will definitely by again, unless something better comes along.
I like this eyeliner and bought it because you can twist it without sharpening. Well my kohl eyeliner does not give me any new liner to work with! I am not the face of happy right now!
To pay R99,95 and only have a point of product is not very economical.
Am I wrong? Is there someting wrong with the liner I bought.
Until i find better this is it. Got it in ultra black and let me tell you, it is ULTRA BLACK! It sets very quickly. I had no smudging in my oily upper lid. Lining the lower lid is a dream. Unfortunately it's not great on my waterline. It stays put but makes me tear up and the claims of it causing a filmy build up us true sadly. I prefer lining my waterline but I'm not having luck with this product. I'll keep buying it for the extreme creaminess, rich pigmented color and staying power but will keep looking for something that stays put and doesn't irritate my eyes.
Update: Still think this is pretty cool but I have found a better, longer lasting liner from MAC. The MAC liner isnt anywhere near as black, which is a downer, but on my lids and waterline, it can't be beat. I also find on my unpreped lids there is smudging after about 5 or 6 hours which is still incredibly decent and about the same wear I get from the MAC liner under the same conditions.
Standard eyeliner. Doesn't last very long, doesn't tight line. One pro is that it's twistable and doesn't need sharpening but other than that it's not worth it.
I've been using this steadily for the past 2 yrs or so. I always purchase in inyx and it gives me the desired effect: large noticable eyes. The lasting power is far better than anybother liner I've used in the past. It goes on snooth and does not require several laters. If it's hot out, no worries this will stay on. Id you exercise vigorously no worries again.
I loveeee this so much fav makeup ever so pigmented !?!?
I had really high hopes for this eyeliner, and I bought it especifically for my waterline. It is extremely creamy, doesn't tug and it is really black, so soft that it has to be applied with a light hand. BUT it smudges on me. It doesn't go all over my undereye area, but it smudges to the side, right under where i do my winged liner. I've even tried not to eyeline my eye all the way to the end of my waterline, but still, most of it just disappears and some goes to the side of my eyes after about 5 or 6 hours of wear.
This is great for lining your top lashes, but it itches like crazy when applied on the waterline. My eyes are kind of sensitive, but they only turn red from other khol liners. This literally itched.
When used to line the lashes though it didn't smudge at all. Has a good staying power also, but I will not repurchase probably.
I love black eyeliner and this one is pretty decent. very creamy, glides on without pulling or anything. doesn't smudge -big plus here! my mother has watery eyes and all the other kohls I got her end up under the waterline after 10 minutes!!!-
I use this mainly on the waterline and it's a matte dramatic black that I love. it lost one lippy with me because it irritates my eyes just a bit. they are very sensitive though so the fact that they are only mildly irritated rather then blood red and watery tells you alot.
won't repurchase as I'm still looking for a brand more suitable to my sensitive eyes
Iíve been looking for a decent, well pigmented purple kohl liner for a while. this is the best Iíve found. I have this liner in Deep Purple/Ultra Violet: itís super pigmented and creamy and long lasting (and cheap at £4.49 ). It also has a lovely sparkle.
I applied it on my lower waterline and it stayed put for about 10 hours in hot and humid weather. It did smudge a little bit, but not too much.
I also used it as a base on my upper lid with a purple cream liner on top, and it made the cream very intense. This also lasted all day :D
Itís also very easy to apply with a brush, if you want a winged look. Make sure you set it or use a primer!
Unfortunately, this pencil is difficult to sharpen as it is so soft. I found that I had to put it in my fridge before I could sharpen it. Iím not sure how long this pencil will last as it is so soft!
Apparently you have to twist this pencil at the base to open it up - i tried to twist it, and the end of the pencil was definitely some kind of twisting thing, but if thats the case my mechanism is broken! Bad packaging!
That said, I will definitely buy this again, maybe in a different colour, as it is cheap and pigmented. The purple really is pretty though!
