Skin Type: Normal-Dry
I love colored eyeliner, especially blues and purples. Here is an one I bought a long time ago, but have not used much. Why though? Read on to find out.
GBP 6.90 (Around INR 900 in India)
Automatic eye pencil for the waterline and lash line that delivers a precise, even and long-lasting stroke.
The deep colour is revealed instantly. The soft texture glides on and may be blended using the pencil’s built-in applicator.
The modern, unique packaging features the KK monogram embossed on the top, an applicator and a soft ergonomic grip section, which allows for a quick and easy application. The pencil’s colour is easily detected thanks to the colour-coordinated cap and a band around the pencil.
Available in two different finishes: matte and pearl.
My Experience with Kiko Lasting Precision Automatic Eyeliner And Khôl 07 Cobalt:
I like the packaging. It comes in a long retractable pencil form. The packaging is color-coded; the cap and the band on the pencil depict the shade. The retractable mechanism works fine and keeps the product safe. The other side of the eyeliner has a smudger, which is decent enough. It is comfortable on the eyes. It also came with a cap but I lost it, since it was kind of loose for this pencil. I do not have any issue with the packaging, basically.
“07 Cobalt”, as the name suggests, is a matte bright blue shade. I bought this eyeliner solely for the shade. But, of course, you can get this shade in some other brand as well. I feel that this shade flatters my brown eyes very well. This kind of blue also makes my complexion look brighter.
Now let’s begin with the negatives. I’m giving this range a benefit of doubt and assuming not all variants are bad. The formula of this one is creamy, but not in a good way. The eyeliner tends to break way too easily during application. I have lost more eyeliner than I’ve applied so far.
It sets to a matte finish immediately but it is neither long-lasting nor smudge proof. It fades a lot, spreads around the eyes a lot and makes the eye area look messed up. It lasts and leaves a stain by the end of the day on the eyelids, but it fades way too much. I’ve been using this one since summers and this formula just isn’t working for me.
Also, the application is too uneven. If I apply even a little pressure during application to even out the liner, it just breaks. It even broke when I was swatching it on my hand today. Overall, this one disappointed me and I would not purchase any product from this range. The Sephora Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner has the same concept and costs pretty much the same but it’s much better, so I’d go check that one out next time.
Even in the picture, you can make out how much it had smudged around my eyes and it was just after 2 hours of wear time. So disappointed.
