I have heard a lot about L’Oreal’s HIP range of eye shadows, So asked my friend returning from US to get me something from it. she got me this.
The product basically claims to be a kohl eyeliner. I tried using as a liner but it would just fade off in some time if applied as it is. With a eyeliner sealer it gave a better finish and stayed on for long. I read its bottle and it was mentioned HIGH INTENSITY PIGMENTS. So, I tried using it as an eye shadow by tapping out some product on my hand and got pretty decent results. So from now on, I will be using this just as an eye shadow instead of liner. This indeed gives really intense Colour with awesome pigmentation & blends easily. The prominent shimmer makes it apt for party eye makeup. Overall I like this product, but only as an eye pigment but not much as a liner.

Pros of Hip Studio Secrets Proffessional Kohl Eyeliner:

• Just a little product gives intense Colour
• Pigmentation is pretty decent
• Easy to apply & use with the given wand/applicator.
• Sleek packaging, easy to carry.
• The eye shadow doesn’t smudge a lot and stays in place for a long time.
• Fine texture, blends easily.

Cons of Hip Studio Secrets Proffessional Kohl Eyeliner:
• Fades off if applied as a liner without a liner sealer/primer.
• Can’t be used on the waterline because of the shimmer particles.
• Not easily available in India
• Contains parabens.

Will I buy it again?
No, I would rather buy a pigment only rather than buying a liner that doesn’t work well as one 😛 😛 😛

IMBB Rating- 3.5 / 5 :-* :-* :-*
