Sephora Long Lasting Kohl Pencil product review

THE PRODUCT

An ultra-pigmented, long-lasting kohl pencil for lining the eye contour and inner rims of the eyes.

COMPANY CLAIM

Intensify your eyes by enhancing the eye contour and inner rims with deep, lasting color. This kohl pencil provides a brightening effect by creating contrast, making the whites of the eyes appear brighter and the rest of the eye more dramatic. The creamy texture glides on, blends easily, and provides optimal comfort for all-day wear.

WHAT I THOUGHT

Pros
  • Has a very rich black color.
  • Applies well and smudges easily.
  • Cheap. I bought it for $10 SGD at Sephora.
  • Can be applied as is yet already very intense.
  • It gives you bigger and bolder eyes.
  • Lasts long even if I rubbed on my eyes a couple of times. (I don't recommend you to do this. I only did it for the purpose of this review. But I did it gently as the skin on our eyes are very sensitive.)

Cons
  •  Some of the kohl eyeliner pencil residue falls into the natural lines and folds on the upper eyelids which makes it appear like dirt building up.

Here are the results of my experiment.

This is how it looks like when I applied Sephora Long Lasting Kohl Pencil in the morning.

After 12 hours, below is how Sephora Long Lasting Kohl Pencil looks like. I didn't do any retouch to see the difference. The makeup residue usually falls into the natural lines and folds on the upper eyelids which looks like a dirt buildup so it's important to smudge it using a smudge brush  or a even fingers as long as it's clean so that it won't look gross.

It looks like I just applied the Kohl pencil on my eyelids.

Check out my post how to apply kohl eyeliner.

CONCLUSION

Its my first kohl eyeliner pencil so I cannot compare it to other kohl eyeliner pencils available in the market. But I actually like the product except for the build up on my eyes which is not really that bad since it's smudge-able. For me, I like the product and it's a value for money.
