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:
