My Experience with Lancome Le Crayon Kohl Noir Review:

Le crayon kohl from Lancôme has been my HG kohl pencil since last 1.5 years. This is the second pencil I got and I am sure that this remaining half will last me another 3-4 months. My love for these kohl liners hasn’t changed a bit from the day I got it swatched on my hand, it was like love on first swipe 😀 😀

I wanted the darkest black kohl and when I checked this out, I was sure I won’t have to check for more. The kohl is amazingly super soft and just glides on my eyes. The pigmentation is superb and I get intense black line with just a single swipe, with no tugging/pulling at all. The staying power of these is good 4-5 hours. Being soft, they do smudge, but nothing that leaves me with racoon eyes, in fact, I like that smudgy kohl effect on my eyes  .

Also, these are waterline safe, I have never had any irritation, redness, itching in the eyes and no trouble even with my contact lenses. These can also be used as eyeliners, but I usually avoid that and use it just as kohl. Overall, I absolutely adore this kohl and I would definitely re-purchase and recommend it.

Summing its pros and cons below:

:yes: Super soft and glide easily on the water line/
:yes: The shade Noir is the best possible darkest black I have come across in kohls.
:yes: Intense pigmentation, just one swipe is required .
:yes: Easy application, no pulling
:yes: Nice 4-5 hours staying power
:yes: These can be great for creating smokey eyes.
:yes: Sharpenable pencils are considered more hygienic over retractable ones.
:yes: One pencil lasts for at least 9-10 months even if used daily.
:yes: Can be removed easily with normal makeup removers.

:no: These are not waterproof.
:no: There’s a lot of product wastage due to sharpening.
:no: Expensive.
:no: I couldn’t find out the ingredients list anywhere, not on the website too.
:no: Available at Lancôme counters only.
