How’s life going on? It rained here last evening and I was so happy and dancing in the rain like a little kid. My last weekend was a huge shopping one. I bought lot of high-end products (yea yea). Reviews will be shared soon 😉 One of them is the Clinique Kohl Shaper for Eyes Black, which I am reviewing today. I have super oily eyelids and all brands of kohl have smudged on me except the Lakme Ultimate Kohl, which fades away after few hours of application. I entered the Clinique store and picked up a few eye pencils and this kohl. While most of the products were good, this one turned out to be a dud. Read the detailed review below for more info 🙂

My Experience with Clinique Kohl Shaper For Eyes Black Kohl:
The Clinique Kohl Shaper for eyes comes in a regular green and white cardboard packaging, which is the traditional packaging of Clinique. The packaging contains all the relevant information about the ingredients, the shelf life, price, usage tips. The pencil comes in a jet black matte finishing which is triangular to hold and has a grey colored cap. The cap has an in-built sharpener, which I love in the pencils, as I can use its own designated sharpener for the product. I was super excited to see the dark black tip of the pencil. The kohl is super creamy and the blackest black I have ever seen. It just requires a single stroke to line the water line in the smoothest way.
On the eyes, it shows up as a super black jet glossy kohl, beautifully lining up the eyes and instantly brightening up my face. I tried the kohl at the store and loved it thoroughly, and without second thoughts, picked it up. Well, the review takes a U-turn here, after I got home, I saw that my eye area was the worst ever, the kohl had stained my under eye area in a patchy style and was nowhere on the water line. I gave the product a benefit of doubt that may be accidentally, I would have rubbed my eyes as I returned home after 4-5 hours of shopping.
The next time I used the kohl, I made sure that I had dusted my eye area with loose powder to absorb any kind of oil and to get a neater look. I applied the same on my waterline and left for work. After I reached my destination around an hour later, I saw panda eyes again! I hated myself so much for not carrying any wet tissues with me to help clean the eye area. Even an eye shadow over the kohl could not help me from the “panda effect.” I hate this kohl so much, I very disappointed with Clinique for creating such a dud product.
