Today I’ll be reviewing yet another black eye pencil. Let’s see how it fared.
Price: $3, with shipping and customs
KleanColor liner pencil is a high precision and richly textured liner. It redefines, oulines and makes your lips and eyes fresh colored without feathering.
There are 41 lip pencils (815-855) and 20 eye & eyebrow pencils (901-920).
My Experience with KleanColor 901 Black Eye/Eyebrow Pencil:
Packaging: This pencil is no different than our regular kajal wooden pencils. The cap fits nicely. The pencil is long enough and is of the sharpenable type. However, it doesn’t come with a sharpener. It is safe enough to travel with. I like how sleek and slender the pencil is.
Colour: This one is a nice black colour, but it does lack some intensity if you swatch it just once. You need to build it up to your liking. It is buildable up to 3-4 layers. After 3-4 layers, you won’t notice any difference in the intensity. So I’d say it has medium pigmentation. But it does come up to a nice black but not too intense black. This one stays a bit on the softer black side.
Texture: The texture of this eye pencil is really soft and smooth. It is indeed a very creamy liner, so much so that the very tip of it broke while I was swatching. I really love the texture, but what I don’t like is that it smudges a bit on the waterline. It is bearable if you want to use it for a few hours, but if you intend to wear this for longer hours, it might not be a good option.
Staying power: It stays on the lids for 5-6 hours, but just after 30 minutes, it starts to smudge on the lower lash line. You do need to clean the lash line every hour or so and as for touch ups, you need to touch it up every 3 hours or so. It starts to fade after 3-3.5 hours.

Would I Repurchase/Recommend KleanColor 901 Black Eye/Eyebrow Pencil?
I don’t mind the smudging that much. But I wouldn’t repurchase this for sure and I’m not too keen to recommending it to you guys too!
