Purple is a colour that seems so apt for an eye liner and I am constantly looking for a particular shade of purple, more like that egg plant colour. I picked this up hoping it would be what I was looking for.
Price: 320 INR
The Khol and Contour is an eye liner in pencil. It is the sharpening type and some people may find that is a waste of product. The name is written on the pencil and the entire pencil is a purple shade so finding it isn’t too hard if you have a whole bunch of eye liner pencils. There is a lot of information written on the pencil actually, so if you are like super bored you can just sit and read through it all.
The colour is the eggplant shade I like, but its not as pigmented as I would have liked. It is not rich and creamy. It can tug on your eye lids if you have dry eye lids. The pigmentation is kind of poor. I like coloured eye pencils to be super pigmented so that colour shows up bold on my eye lids. If you are the kind of person who is likes to play it safe with colour, you make like the fact that this eye liner is coloured but not so coloured that it grabs attention. For me well, it was kind of blah. Even after multiple swipes it just barely shows.
Not smudge proof at all. I like using this on my lower lash line and then I set it with a similiar shade eyeshadow so that it stays put. I have used it as a base for eye shadows. I smudge it all over my lids and since this smudges easily, it makes for a decent eyeshadow base. There is barely any colour when you blend it out but it does hold eyeshadows in place for about 4 hours.
I have pretty sensitive eyes and so I never wear this on my waterline like a kohl. It just irritates my eyes if I do.
Not water resistant or water proof. It comes off when you rub your eyes. The staying power at best is about 3 hours if you don’t rub your eyes. I never have any eye liner left in the inner corner of my eye when I use this pencil. So much for the 16 H claim!
Overall not the greatest eye liner pencil to invest in. Nice colour but average performance. If you are like me and want your eyes to make a statement, then you might want to look at some other eye pencil. Maybe it is a problem with this colour. I am not too sure as I have not tried any other colour from this range.
- Easy to use.
- Washes off easily.
- Can be used as an eyeshadow base
- I love the colour
- Not smudge proof or water proof
- Doesn’t stay on for long if you are an eye rub-ber
- Can tend to tug on your eyelids while being used
- Not pigmented enough for me.
Would I buy it again?
Absolutely Not. There are so many more eye pencils out there that I want to try.
Would I recommend it?
If you want a eye pencil that isn’t super pigmented, go for it. Otherwise you Can Pass.
3/5 (There is so much room for improvement with this pencil)
