My Experience with Catrice Kohl Kajal 240 My Dream Of Caribbean:
The kohl is a wooden sharpenable pencil. The shade of the kohl is same as the color of the pencil and the cap. The plastic cap closes tightly and doesn’t open when kept in bag. There is some basic information on the pencil. The product comes unsealed and you need to check the product to ensure that if it has been used or not, and then pick the product. The slim convenient style makes the pencil travel-friendly.
The shade, “Dream of Caribbean” is a turquoise-teal colored pencil with a matte finish. When swatched, the color gets imparted very well but the case is not similar when applied to eyes. The product is not very creamy and it tugs the eyelids and you need to use a lighter to melt the product a little and then apply it over the eyes. Even though the shade looks beautiful in the swatch, when applied on the eyes, it doesn’t suit all skin tones. I guess this product would suit people who are on the fairer skin tones as it feels a little ashy on my eyes. The color doesn’t brighten up the face. Even though it is pigmented, to impart the color onto the eyes, you need to glide on 3-4 times and only then you can get the color built up.
The eyeliner doesn’t have any glitter or shimmer and is plain matte. The product sharpens well without any issue. The product doesn’t cause any irritation on my eyes and I guess it is suitable for sensitive eyes too. The product stays for around 30 minutes on the waterline and fades away, but on the lid, it stays for around 6 hours and fades very lightly and I think this is great for a drug store brand. The product stays put even on oily lids. I have been using this now to smudge at the corners of the eyes and it gives a good definition.
The product is very easy to remove too. With just a cleanser or makeup remover, you can get the product out. The product doesn’t wash away with water, but it is not waterproof. The product smudges very lightly. The product is okay, but I am not so fond of the color.
Pros of Catrice Kohl Kajal 240 My Dream Of Caribbean:
- Stays for around 5-6 hours which is impressive.

Cons of Catrice Kohl Kajal 240 My Dream Of Caribbean:

IMBB Rating: 3/5
