Liked and Dislikes :

  • Look and Feel : It is a sharpenable pencil with black outer covering. The outer covering is semi matte .  The lettering on the pencil is done with white. It looks quite classy , sleek and pretty.
  • Texture : The texture is slightly powdery. It’s like a dry-black-ultra-smooth soot is made a little creamy and somehow moulded in a pencil form..if that makes sense? It’s not the creamy creamy eye kohl. It’s like velvetty powdery and one swipe of kajal will give you loads of color on your waterline. Feels super smooth when applied. Also, it never tugs the eyes and feels soft.
  • Staying Power : It goes pretty strong on my waterline for good 3-4 hours but my eyes have become quite watery of late.Even when I laugh my eyes water a lot. 😛 If you don’t have such watery eyes this may even go longer. 
  • It smudges but it does not travel all the way down to your under eyes. Just set it with a powder eye shadow and you’d be sorted. 
  • I like the semi matte finish it gives in the waterline. 
  • Beautiful for doing soft smudgy smokey eyes – just glide this khol one your upper lash line , water line and lower lash line. Pick some black. brown eye show on a pencil brush and smudge it. Not only it would set for long but would give a beautiful soft black effect to your eyes. 
  • It sharpens pretty well without breaking. 
  • Never ever irritated my eyes. 
  • It comes off easily with an eye makeup remover. 
  • This contains parabens. Don’t like.
  • Acc to the SA, it is safe for contact lens wearers as well.

The eye khol comes witha sharpener, which is of very good quality. It sharpens other eye pencils also pretty well.

Chanel noir comparison

MAC Feline by far is the blackest black I have come across. Then is the Lakme Sheer Satin Kajal (may sting your eyes), The Urban Decay Liner in Zero and Chanel Eye Khol are more or less the same as far as blackness goes. Chanel’s texture is a little powdery while Urban Decay’s one is on the creamy side.

If you are looking for a soothing “pure” kajal , this may not be for you. If you are looking for a super duper intense black, this may not be for you.

If you are looking for a medium black kajal that stays long on waterline, this may be a good bet. I prefer to swipe the khol 3-4 times on my waterline to make it super intense. It is a great black kohl but even blacker kohls than this are available in the market.It goes more intense on the lash line than the waterline. I do like it a lot. It is a good quality basic eye kohl. Looks classy and feels luxurious. 🙂

  1. This looks really good on your eyes !!! :thumbsup: I really loved your way of writing review !!!The sharpener looks better then kohl though ! :toothygrin: I have lakme kohl ultimate and I really love using that though I seriously doubt whether thats a kohl? ?:) 😐

      1. Ohhhh really, sooo bad for those who had stinging issues after paying 650 for lakme kohl !I was soooo angry when i felt the stinging in my eyes after using deborah kajal !!!

        1. that sucks. Totally hate it when these eye pencils sting on waterline. :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: You could have easily got a smolder with a few bucks more and it would have been so awesome. 🙂

  2. Hey Rati…this looks nice on your eyes.. :preen: and yes a nice way of putting up things No wonder you started this Blog.. :waytogo: 🙂 I have tried Kohl 2-3times .. it makes my eyes red and watery ..So I prefer mammas homemade kajal only.

        1. radhika umm.. how do i explain… see on its own it is quite black okay… bt there are pencils that are more black than this… does this make sense ?:) and if you apply more swipes of it it does get super black but if you apply just one swipe of feline it is super black in a swipe only. I mean It is a very good eye pencil bt there are darker options avaible as well.

            1. haan exactly. on waterline na the tears kinda soften the actual color. On lash line the smokey eye is like a dream. i goes soft super black on lash line. smudge it and you done. i did eye makeup with this pencil when i went to meet nufur…and we had loads of stuff na.. the same day i did :preen: :preen: :preen:

                1. hehhehe no i dint do red lippy. 😀 yesterday i went out I wore a red lippy and my pati is totally used to it now :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

  3. Its just medium types black naaa..ya the lancome one is definitely darker

    And you knowww I tried to search for those OPI dupes of colorbar..but they are not here yet :(( :((

  4. but is a nice soft black……sometimes you want that naa instead of that harsh black look…your eyes look so prettty :green: :green: eye looks pretty, rather

  5. kyu rati kyu…why are u doing this to me…… :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes:

    1. thanks vaishnavi. I met nupur na recently so i was laughing a lot and my eyes started watering. she was wondering why was i crying. 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

            1. oh..that way!! mine are naturally watery…a single swipe has me looking like i have bawled my eyes out! my mom begs me not to apply kohl just before going out! she says people’ll think she :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: me :toothygrin:

  6. It looks very nice! :thumbsup: But I can live without it! 😀
    And I must say,I’m more interested in the sharpener than the kohl. :dumb: 😆
    And the pics for this review are awesome! It gives off a very professional vibe! :woot: You’re getting better at photos by the day! :puchhi:

      1. Mujhe paancil nahi chayie,Madam! I only want the sharpener. Mere paas waise bhi achha kajal hai,ab ke liye :whistle:
        And You’re Welcome! 😀

  7. 1250 :pigtail: i’ll stick to my max factor 1, which is 340 n gives intense dark black and also stays on my eyes for 5-6 hours without smudging a bit 😀 this is very tempting though! Especially the cute sharpner :-* i’ll have 2 save 3/4th of my monthly pocket money to buy this :worship:

  8. awesome pictures !! …you photographed them well with that pencil shaving 🙂

    9 out of 10 liners sting my eyes …i have stopped wearing anything on waterline as it endsup being a nuisance.This definetly looks like it will sting as you have mentioned in some comments here…too bad for me :smug:

      1. aila …yes …thanks for pointing out
        i read it in this super fast mode which skipped manythings …now reading like this :specs: ..This looks gud for my waterlin as i dont have which stays for a long time and doesnt sting.However I should try this before purchasing as its little steep on price.nahi tho kisiko aise hi dena padega :scream:

    1. May factor colour perfection eyeliner 🙂 it stays on my waterline totally intact atleast till 5 hrs :yay: btw, its looking awesome on you :puchhi:

      1. ratidoooo waiting for you to review and swatch the MAC lippies.. me getting bonus this month so have to update my MAC lippy collection :secret2: :secret2: :secret2: :secret2: :secret2: :secret2:

        1. Oh wowiee!! I will start doing super soon suma. I know the textures and effects of a lot of mac lipsticks that I have bought so wouldnt take long to review these. Already trying stuff. I would ahve loads to say on lots of things. :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1:

  9. Awesome review Rati..I prefer pitch black kohl so I dont think I would buy happy with the MAC technakohl..Have u tried it?

  10. I just have MAC engraved black pencil. Which is not very intense like smolder. Thought of picking smolder next. Which one do you like more Smolder or this one ? which stays better on you ?

  11. Sharpener is nice na 😀 m not super impressed by this one :smug: Mac one looks more ofnow will stick to my oriflame intensity pencil..keeps all day on my waterline..sometimes more than 12 hours also :yahoo: :yahoo:

      1. Its not completely a kohl na 😀 i use it as kohl..and its pretty safe..never stung my eyes even when I wear contacts 🙂 also may be my eyes are not that watery ?:)

          1. yup 😀 me tried simple neutral eye makeup today..looks quite dhinchak in office i think as the eyshadows are little on shimmery side..still trying hard to carry it off with confidence 😉
            All thanks to you for inspiring us beginners :thanks:

            1. awww!! that’s nice parita. I like when women get dressed up for office. I go to office and when i come downstairs for chai or something , i start feeling over dressed and made up. I wonder why a lot of women dnt get dressed up nicely for office. 🙁 Bt in my office me and navpreet are mostly dressed up and have done our bit of makeup. It’s nice. :)) and yo! do carry it with confidence. :-*

              1. Thank you Rati..m still learning some subtle ways of doing eye makeups without looking like a clown especially this happens a lot with warm skinned gals like me..its very easy to go over remember few weeks back i used to ask you regarding your eye makeup? i loved them..they were so subtle and looked fab..i didnt even feel they look weird at all..but if i do try the same on me..i’ll look weird or probably i feel i am not used to seeing myself so made up 😀
                None of the gals in my team dress up…hardly u’ll see a kajal or a liner also :nababana:
                LOL..I am definitely gonna try to do so 🙂
                :thanks: for your encouragement :puchhi:

                  1. Nah nah rati…she just needs to visit symbi in lavale once in a while!!! :toothygrin: :toothygrin: most of the engg crowd ki bandiyan don’t believe in dressing up on a regular basis, so if u r with them, u stand out :methinks: :methinks:

  12. Rati, FAB review and AWESOME photos!!!!!!!!!
    Ok, how is this when compared to the technakohl? Which would u prefer personally…?
    Technakohl was gifted to me n I like it. Now I wanna decide which to buy…

  13. Ohhh thanks u summed it up nicely 🙂 I’m LOVING ur creative pics these days..
    I stare at them so long.. Longer than I take to read to read the review 😀

  14. i am loving the look of this kohl pencil!! :love: :love: :love: :love: don’t really care abt how black it is…m finding it difficult to look beyond the pretty packaging only! :dumb: :dumb:

  15. u actually wasted the pencil by sharpening it first n then u took pics with tht.. :snicker: :snicker: :snicker: :snicker:
    gr8 review Rati.. :puchhi:

  16. Getting too tempted with the products but it makes me so SAD :waaa:
    as none of these brands are available in Gujarat. Wish could buy them! Especially this LANCOME kajal or MAC feline :smug:

  17. Chanel makes some amazing liners and they are quite performing…what bothers me is that they still use parabens in their products ( i know they might not in the future do that)………….I liked the way they glide and they are not the most expensive ones in the market with Guerlain on its way (overtly priced and horribly underperfoming)…MAC feline is such a good one instead!

    1. oh is guerlin coming to India… didnt know that. 🙂 Never tried anything from guerlin though saw their lovely counters during my travels. Oh yeah the liner is really nice bt parabens really scare me actually. I mena chanel can totally do without them. I agree about the price. mac eye kohls are around 800-900 and a few more bucks you can totally pick up a luxury brand and pamper yourself. 😀

  18. i have to buy a new kohl…thinking btw lancome and chanel..plz recommend..
    im not concered how it looks..more on how it feels my eyes are really sensitive

    so plz pour in ur valuable inputs
