My Views After Using L’Oréal Contour Khol:

I have been using this pencil from almost a year now which can be easily judged by the size of the Kohl pencil left with me. I was and still am in love with it, but never found it on display anywhere on the Loreal counter. As it was there, I never ever bothered to check for any other kohl pencil as I was so much satisfied with it.

Now, as I already said that it was a gift to me, so I thought maybe availability in India would be an issue, so this was another reason, I never asked for the same here, but just checking the urbantouch.com a few days back, I saw it on sale there and was like pleasantly surprised. Then, I thought of writing a review for the same as I want others also to benefit from this kohl.


Comparison of the size of the kohl pencil left with me and the actual size (I have kept my Bourjois Kohl pencil for showing the actual size of the kohl).

Here on IMBB, I have mostly come across this question as to name a kajal/kohl that does not smudge and stays on for long. Many of us here swear by the MAC kohl too, but price is always an issue with it. I have replied to that question here too as using this L’oreal kajal pencil, twice or thrice, as it stays on for 7 hours or so with very little fading and smudging.

It is black black and very black and is totally matte. It is waterproof too and yes it can be rubbed to create a smudged look. It is super pigmented and one single swipe on the waterline is also enough to have a dark kajal on.

It glides on really smooth and probably lasts about 7-8 hours for me without having to reapply. Just to check it for the purpose of reviewing, I applied it in the morning, cried after watching an emotional movie, slept for an hour, then woke up and splashed water on my face and patted dry and still the kohl was very much there even after all this (5 hours). So, for other ladies who work and so don’t get the time to sleep or cry after watching movie, then it’ll stay on you for 7-8 hours easily. Sometimes, it runs into the corners of your eyes, but it’s really easy to just dab off with a tissue or you finger and it never leaves that blackish smudge under your eyes, which is why, I love it!


One swipe of the Kohl pencil:


The 2 times smudged kohl after 2-3 minutes of application:

It glides on super easy without clumping and is very easy to smudge into the perfect smokey eyes. It can be easily smudged to create a nice day smokey eye look all alone. I have done that a countless number of times. You can smudge it easily even after 3-4 minutes of application, but that does not mean that it will smudge even on the waterline or on eyelids on its own. If one wants to use it as an eye liner, they can do so also without smudging it and same goes for the waterline.

Pros of the Loreal Contour Khol:

• A true matte black kohl pencil.
• Glides swiftly on to the eyes and waterline.
• Stays on for 7 hours with minimum fading.
• Does not smudge like mad even after hours of application.
• Decently priced.
• Can be used alone to create a soft smokey eye look.
• Does not break on sharpening. I have sharpened it many times till date.
• The kohl point can be used easily for 2 weeks or so without having a need to re-sharpen it, so this one pencil will last for an year easily even if you use it everyday.
• Waterproof.
• Contour Khol Eyeliner has been opthamologically tested to make it suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
• It can also be easily removed with a standard make-up remover.

Cons of the L’Oréal Contour Khol:

The cap of this kohl is thin and flimsy and can break easily. Mine broke too. Rest, it is hard to believe, but I didn’t find any con as yet. For the price you pay, it is a perfect kohl as well as an eyeliner pencil.



The cracked Kohl cap

Rating: 4.5/5.

Definitely yes. For all of you who generally complain about their kajal pencil not staying much on your water eyelids can surely give this a try. It is a great product at a cheap price. Well, I just got my Amway kajal 3 days back, so this one has to wait, but any day, I can buy this if need arises.

Now some snaps of mine wearing it in different lights 😉
