My Experience with Flower That’s So Kohl! Eyeliner in Electric Volt:
Packaging: The eyeliner comes in a crayon format and the color of the packaging matches the color of the kohl itself. The packaging is attractive and effective. It has a sponge smudger on one end which can be used to create smudged blended looks. Both sides have a transparent cap.
The kohl comes in a retractable format. It doesn’t come with its own sharpener. So, once the tip becomes too blunt, you would need to find a sharpener to do the job.
Shade/Pigmentation: “Electric Volt” is a bright electric blue. It is a gorgeous color and instantly reminds me of all things sea side. If you are into blue eyeliners, you are bound to like this color. But, I have to admit that this is a bright shade and not everyone would be able to carry it off easily. The kohl is strongly pigmented and one swipe is enough to deposit color on your eyes.
Texture/Finish/Staying Power: The texture of this eyeliner is very creamy. It glides smoothly on the lash line and is very easy to use. This eyeliner does not have any shimmer and the finish is matte. It can be safely used on the waterline and does not irritate the eyes.
The staying power is decent; it lasts for around 4 hours on my water line. On my upper lash line, it stays for around 5+ hours, but it lasts nowhere close to the advertised 12 hours. It also smudges quite easily which is fine if you are creating a soft smudged look but not if you want a sharp line.
Pros of Flower That’s So Kohl! Eyeliner in Electric Volt:
- Gorgeous shade of blue.
- Creamy texture.
- Nice matte finish.
- Strongly pigmented.
- Glides smoothly.
- Easy to use retractable format.
- Does not irritate when used on waterline.
- Paraben-free, Talc-free, Phthalate-free, GMO-free, sulfate-free.
Cons of Flower That’s So Kohl! Eyeliner in Electric Volt:
- Staying power is nowhere close to the advertised 12 hours.
- Smudges very easily.
- You will need to find a way to sharpen it once the tip becomes blunt.
Would I Repurchase Flower That’s So Kohl! Eyeliner in Electric Volt?
I would recommend you to go for it only if you absolutely love the shade. It is a decent eyeliner but nothing extra-ordinary. I already have other shades from this range and will not repurchase the same shade.
