My Experience with Kiko Milano Precision Eye Pencil 300 Black:
The eye pencil comes in a black cardboard case, which has some basic information. I like the fact that it is packaged so well. The pencil is present in the box. There are six shades available and I picked up the black one because I wanted a pencil for tightlining as I am skipping my eyeliners these days. The pencil is silver in color and the bottom depicts the color of the product. The aluminum like metal cap fits well. There is some basic information on the pencil too. The pencil is very sleek and travel-friendly.
The shelf life of the pencil is 24 months, which is pretty decent. One of the first things you notice when you pull out the pencil is the woody smell. The pencil is made with real wood and there is that dark wood smell, and I love the smell. The pencil is pretty small but is very easy to hold and allows me to draw precise lines. The pencil is easy to sharp. The lead is not very delicate and it doesn’t break off while sharpening, but you should use an eye pencil sharpener over the traditional pencil sharpener.
The eye pencil can be used to draw very precise lines and it glides smoothly. It doesn’t pull the skin and is very delicate. However, it is a bit difficult to draw even, single lines. You need to connect the line. I tried using the pencil for a single line and you can clearly see that in the eye swatch. The smooth texture and creamy application makes it easy to smudge while creating smokey lines.
The product is pretty pigmented and you can build up the color to intensify it. The product doesn’t cause any irritation and is suitable for sensitive skin. The product is waterproof and smudge proof. Once you let it settle a bit, it cannot be smudged. I love this property of the eye pencil. I have to really rub hard to get the color off. I usually have a tendency of touching my eyes, and with normal kajals, I always end up with raccoon eyes. Even though this spreads over period of time, it doesn’t create black mess everywhere.
The product stays for around 2-3 hours on my waterline and for more than 6-7 hours on my lids. I have oily lids and this duration is fine with me. I haven’t tried it with a primer or foundation and I use it on moisturized eyes. The product fades evenly. It can easily be removed with an oil, a face wash or a good makeup remover. I use Balea Eye Makeup Remover to get the color off. I like the pencil for what it offers. I use it only for tightlining my eyes and I am really happy with the results.
So, summing up:
