Loreal Paris Color Riche Le Kohl – Pure Espresso

Today’s review is going to be about one of my recent favourite kohl pencil. I bought Loreal Paris Color Riche Le Kohl because I was impressed by the shade. It is called Pure Espresso and it is a beautiful deep brown shade. It flatters the eyes when worn as kohl and suits almost all the Indian skin tone. This is my go to kohl these days and I am in love with the shade and texture. Please read on to know my experience with this beautiful kohl pencil.

My experience with Loreal Paris Color Riche Le Kohl – Pure Espresso:

The kohl comes in a brown colored pencil form which is to be sharpened. I like the packaging, it has a golden strip at the top of the pencil and the name of the product is written in golden letters and it looks very sleek. The shade name is written at the bottom of the pencil. The texture of the pencil is very smooth and buttery. One has to be very careful while sharpening this pencil, as there are chances that you might break the tip off by mistake by putting more pressure. I have already broken the tip twice. But it is very easy to apply and it literally glides on the lids. The color is intense and comes off very well in one swipe itself. It is a very lovely deep chocolate brown and looks good on waterline. It stays on for around 5 hours on water line and then starts to fade off. On upper lid, it stays bit longer if it is set with similar color eyeshadow. This kohl can be used for neutral eye makeup. It suits very well for brown eye makeup as well. I have Loreal Contour Kohl as well in Dark chocolate. Compared to that pencil, they have really improved the texture and pigmentation of this kohl pencil I must say.  And I also like the price of this kohl pencil range.
