I always remain in search of good pencil kohl liners which I can use on the lower lash line and if they accidentally come in contact with my waterline, they should not sting me. Very rarely are such pencils made which do not irritate me when used on waterline. So, I bought two more liners online in a hope of getting my dream waterline safe kohl liner. Here is this one from Maybelline which now falls in my favourite’s list. Read further to know why.

My Experience with Maybelline Khol Express Eyeliner Pencil – Glam Black:
Maybelline Khol Express Eyeliner comes in a black body and black cap. The cap tightly fits and will not get off while it stays in your bag. So you can carry it around anywhere. The tip of the pencil is soft, glides on the eyes, absolutely no tugging or pulling. At the same time, it is firm enough to resist tip fracture. I swiped it 3-4 times back and fro like we usually do on the lower lash line, but it remained intact. The pigmentation is quite impressive too. Like it may not be the blackest black you have seen till date, but the color comes on your lids with 1-2 swipes and if you want it to be darker, you can swipe more. I have sharpened it twice by now, there is less product wastage compared to other pencils I have used.
The best part about this pencil is that it does not sting my eyes or cause watering at all when used on waterline. This is what I was looking for and I got it in this pencil. Also, it does not smudge or feather in any case, just give it a few seconds to set and then it will not budge at all. Also, it is waterproof, true to its claim.
Coming to the staying power, on the waterline, it will not survive for more than 3 hours. After 3 hours, it will remain as a faint thin line, but it will not spread down. On the upper or lower lash lines, it remains till you want. On the lower lash line, it may lighten after say 5 hours, but on upper one, it does not even lighten. I removed it with a make-up remover after 7 hours. Overall, I wish the shade was more intense black, but otherwise it has all the perfect features at a nominal price.
Pros of Maybelline Khol Express Eyeliner Pencil – Glam Black:
- Safe to carry along.
- Smudge proof.
- Water proof.
- Stays for quite long.
- Very soft on application yet resistant to tip breakage.
- No tugging or pulling.
- Waterline safe; does not sting at all.
- Fairly priced.
Cons of Maybelline Khol Express Eyeliner Pencil – Glam Black:
- No cons, I just wish it was the darkest black (greedy me 😛 )
