I swatched the new kohls from Chambor and was head-over-heels in love with the beautiful colors. Today’s review will be on Chambor Extreme Eyes Long Wear Kohl in the shade “Peacock Blue.”
This richly pigmented pencil glides on smoothly to create a sensual eye look and deliver intense definition for hours. In an instant, eyes are perfectly lined, defined and contoured for a smoldering effect that’s absolutely irresistible. It is waterproof & smudge proof and can be used on the waterline.
My Experience with Chambor Extreme Eyes Long Wear Kohl Peacock Blue:
Packaging: The packaging is more or less similar to the Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil. The kohl comes in a sleek pencil form having a color-coded body. Instead of a transparent cap, it has a shiny silver metallic cap which is sturdier than a plastic cap. The product comes in a cardboard packaging which houses product details, ingredients etc. The pencil is very travel friendly.
Color: The colors though not very uncommon are somewhat different from the regular offerings by drugstore brands. They give the feel of precious jewels with the sheer brightness and intense color. Peacock Blue is a gorgeous sea-green shade shade with shimmer. I was totally smitten with this color. I love emerald, turquoise shades and this seemed such a rocking combination of both green and blue. The shimmer particles are not chunky and do not look over the top. The shade reflects differently under various lighting conditions and I cannot stop admiring it. I won’t call it an anytime color, instead I would reserve it to kill someone with my eyes. 😉 😛
The texture is creamy, beautiful creamy and smooth eyeliner to work with, especially if you have sensitive eyes which water with slightest pressure. It glides on easily on eyes. Easy to work with this on the delicate eye area. The pigmentation is good, it delivers the color with 90% opacity in one swipe, but I tend to swipe it twice to get the full rich peacock tone.
This can be used as an all-over the lid color too, and it looks beautiful both as a liner and eyeshadow. It is a very noticeable color, which instantly jazzes up your eyes. You can play around with this shade. It sets quickly, so you have a few seconds to smudge it if you wish. Once it sets, it is difficult to remove it without a makeup remover. It doesn’t come off just on touching or slightly rubbing. I often use it as a liner, smudge it completely to get a glittery color on my lid and then line my eyes again. No eyeshadow needed!
It stays for 7 hours or so on my oily and non-primed lids. The concern is that since it is a glittery color, the glitter particles tend to travel down if you are wearing it in very humid conditions. I generally keep a tissue handy for this to remove excess oiliness from my under-eye area. It wears well on the lower lash line and waterline too, with no irritation or noticeable smudging. I would definitely suggest using a mattifying powder in the eye area to prevent a disco ball mess. You can remove it with any good makeup remover. It’s a sharpenable pencil which can be easily sharpened with any eye pencil sharpener and gives a workable tip.

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Chambor Extreme Eyes Long Wear Kohl Peacock Blue?
If you are really in love with the colors, go for them. Otherwise, Maybelline gel pencils are much more affordable and offer the same quality. But definitely this range has some shades worth checking out. I might buy this again as I am swooning over this shade.
