Khaki Eyeliner : My Collection
When I think of what eyeliners I can never give up apart from regular black; khaki eyeliners always come to my mind. I am wearing eyeliners (mostly black) for the past five years or more and the only color that I would safely wear any day, anytime except black is khaki.
My tryst with moss green liners began with the Avon’s tiny pencils in khaki shown in the picture. They were not from Avon’s regular line, but were on some sort of offer for less than 75 Rs. I think and since then I picked up khakhis. By the way, I have three of those khakis from Avon as back up coz I just love that perfect khaki for me at such an awesome price. Since then, I have picked up Chambor Long Back, Henna Gold in Lakme eye-glide, Colorbar Moss Green, and recently VOV Sea Green from Fashion and You. The last one is though a little goldeny khaki and we must be careful with that one. I usually put it on top of a khaki pencil, otherwise it’s only the gold that shows in the Sea Green VOV one.
Let’s start with my favourites:
Avon Luxury Eyeliner In Khaki:
I got these a year or so back from some clearance sale from Avon and picked up three as they were the perfect khaki for me at a perfect price. This is a greenish one with soft golden shimmers, easy-to-sharpen regular wooden pencil. I am still not sharpening it much as I really don’t know when those three will finish and don’t know when will Avon have them next or at least a close dupe of that. By the way, there is a “hunter one” already launched in glimmer sticks in the next campaign for Avon and I am sure to get that!
Colorbar Moss Green:
Colorbar eyeliner pencils don’t need an intro. The Moss Green is a mildly shimmery khaki and shows up very well on the eyelids. I loved this pencil so much before it started getting harder with time. I am still holding on to it to take it to the Colorbar counter to get a new one and till then I won’t throw this off.
Lakme Glide On Eye Color:
This is Henna Gold from Lakme Nine to Five and they say it can double as an all-over lid color as well. It’s the most beautiful goldeny henna color I could have. But, I very much want to get the new green that Rati got recently.
Chambor True Khaki Eyeliner:
This was a very very early find even before the Avon one. Till then, I had no idea about moss green eye pencils. This is a true khaki so to say with no shimmer, but just a pretty sheen to it. It is in a twist-up form and even has a sharpener at the base, which I love to use even for my other twist-up pencils. Wooden will still be my favourites as I love to sharpen them and keep them neat, crisp, and ready to use always.
VOV Sea Green Glam Shine Eyeliner:
I got this one from Fashion and You for Rs. 189 (which I think is overpriced, but never mind), it’s a pretty intense goldeny khaki and shows up too bright on the eyes. Mix it up with black or use it on top of a darker pencil, is what I say if you intend to get it; no doubt it’s a beautiful green!
If you are in the market for khaki pencils, here are my other suggestions:
• Avon Hunter Liquiglide Glimmersticks, recently launched in the new campaign 9.
• The one that Rati got in Jade, I guess (not sure, I forget) but it’s a very beautiful green again.
