Review of Guerlain Loose Kohl by purplepengiunz
Click on "continued" to see TWO videos on how to apply the kohl!!
I had been lemming these forever until I finally caved and now own Noir, Brun, Blue, and Oriental Bronze. When I got my first one, I was very frightened at first because of the stick applicator.. It can get a little tough learning how to use it. But with some good practice, you should be good to go in a day or two!
Past that, the colors are gorgeous. Noir is a slightly shimmery more medium black, Brun a beautiful golden bronze brown, Oriental Bronze a sparkling khaki with a touch of bronze, and Blue a shimmery radiant blue. The only one that isn't really glitter is Noir, so if you're a contact lens wearer, I would probably go for that one. They don't actually irritate my eyes, but I'm a careful one!
The lasting power is AMAZING. These are the closest to real kohls that I've found in terms of lasting power. They really do stay on the waterline, kind of smudge and meld, but look so stunning. I have cried and rubbed my eyes wearing these with no serious smudging or wearing off. They give that middle-eastern look (especially the black one).
IMO, the Brun actually looks deeper on application, but the rest generally apply like in the bottle.
Would def repurchase as I love how luxurious these seem and how well they actually work!
I also have a youtube video of me applying one, so here it is!
And another one on application:
