This was a very disappointing purchase. It was very hard to apply and is hard to get a dark enough color. After about an hour and a half it all wore off! Not worth the money at all.

I got this from a friend to try out since she didn't like it and I have to say I understand why. It is not very smooth and I feel like I have to press really hard to be able to apply and and I think it's simply not worth the money.
It also smudges and doesn't stay on your eyelids especially when you have oily lids like mine.
If you want to have an eyeliner that's truely black go for the MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack or if you want to have a pencil eyeliner try out the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil.

The visiting Lancome makeup artist who did my makeover made little strokes over my eyelids in the white Blanc shade after applying their Effacernes concealer in Beige Neutral (which he used as an eyeshadow primer as well as concealer). He said it would bring forward my deep set eyes when he brushed on the ivory powder eyeshadow. It sure did!

This eyeliner smudges easily if you have watery eyes. It's not the darkest black but it's still a little harsh to use on your eyes, unless you want them to be very dark. The color fades pretty quickly after a couple of minutes, so you would have reply your eyeliner throughout the day.

I purchased the noir in non waterproof andts a large pencil but very over priced ($25) It looks and goes on great but smears almost immedietly and makes my eyes water like crazy when used on my water line. But...buuuuut I must say using this over an eyeshadow base or alone to do any smokey eyes as a base works amazing! Since its a a soft pencil it glides and blends effortlessly and greatly increasrs the color intensity and helps it stay super dark. I now use a pencil from ulta w the same intensity and super blendable but at less than half the price n double the staying power n no watery eyes allergic reaction

I have been using eye makeup products for years. From drugstore brands like Maybelline, Revlon, L'oreal, to expensive department store brands such as Lancome, Clinique, Urban Decay, Elizabeth Arden, Estee Lauder. Lancome Le Crayon Kohl is among the worse eyeliners I have ever used. It smudges very soon after applying, although the color is very intense and pure. Who would go for a liner that smears within one hour?

i have this in #06 macadamia grey. The colour is gorgeous and the texture is nice and smooth. Glides softly without tugs or pulls and the colour shows up really nicely. However the big downside is the staying power. It smudges like crazy even after i set it with powder. But because i paid so much for it i still use it occassionally on my lower lash line. I make a very very thin line so when it does smudge in a few hours, its end result is this nice smoky eyes effect.

I received two Lancome Le Crayon Kohls in black and bleu marine as a gift from an aunt.
I should state: I'm not one to splurge - on anything, really!
I was, nevertheless, rather excited to try these ludicrously over-priced kohl pencils.
They glide on very easily and smoothly. The colours show up vividly on my medium-ish olive skin tone.
However, the staying power of these pencils is so utterly horrendous!
Yes, it seems a tad bit melo-dramatic to use the epithet "horrendous" , but no kohl pencil I have test-driven in the past has smudged so awfully.
Admittedly, I do have an oily eye area, but my current 20 ZAR ($2.50) Essence kohl/kajal pencil does not turn my eyes into a smudgy mess.
I personally don't believe it's justifiable to shell out such large sums of money for so called legendary names.
But that could just be me.
I've rated it two lippies because I will be replacing my current kohl pencil plastic cap with Lancome's gold cap.
"Status" without the smear!

IMPORTANT NOTE: I PURCHASED THIS EYELINER IN THE WATERPROOF FORMULA (LANCOME LE CRAYON KOHL WATERPROOF EYELINER).
I'm an eyeliner freak with oily, hooded eyelids and very high eyeliner standards.
The only thing that really pleased me about this eyeliner is its staying power. Out of the tons of pencil eyeliners I've tried, this one has the best staying power. It doesn't stay as well as liquid eyeliners do, but I don't expect it to. Like I mentioned before, I have oily, hooded eyelids, so pencil liners tend to really smudge and transfer on me. This one, surprisingly, doesn't. This eyeliner lasted me a good 6 hours before it started to fade.
But I don't really like anything else about this eyeliner. It doesn't show up on the waterline (a lot of eyeliners don't, so this wasn't really a surprise), and the pigmentation isn't exactly the best. I got this eyeliner in Raisin Noir, which is just a regular black, and instead of the rich, intense black I was hoping for, I just got a dull black. The thing I really dislike the most about this eyeliner is that it tugs and pulls...a lot. Since I have hooded eyelids, I have a lot of extra skin on my eyelids, so tugging just means uneven application and having to hold my skin taut, which I dislike.
The smudger on the other end of this eyeliner is pretty much useless. I don't really like to smudge my eyeliner (I want the opposite effect, actually), but out of curiosity, I tried using the smudger, and it didn't really work because the staying power of the eyeliner is truly immense (it stays put)!
I got this eyeliner for $25.50 at the Lancome website (http://www.lancome-usa.com/), which, I must admit, is pretty pricey, considering that this isn't even a really good eyeliner.
Would I repurchase? No.
