Hi Gorgeous.. 🙂
How are you doing today? I am back again with my new purchase which is my first purchase from Make Up Forever. I heard a lot and tried many MUFE samples before and hence when I noticed their kohl pencil collection, I had to get it. However I am not happy with this kohl pencil. So, let’s read onto know more about Make Up Forever Kohl Pencil 1 k..
Price: $17 for 0.04 Oz (1.14 g), price excludes shipping and tax.
Packaging: This creamy deep black kohl comes in pencil packaging with transparent cap but no sharpener. It is fragrance free and has travel friendly packaging.
My Experience with Make Up Forever Kohl Pencil 1K in Deep Black:
I prefer kohl pencils over eye liners mostly because I am yet to master eye makeup. Moreover kohl pencils are safe and gentle enough for waterline hence I always look for kohl liners. Talking about this MUFE deep black kohl pencil, it’s not the deepest black I have used so far though it gives nice deep black smoky smudge look to my eyes in single swipe.
The texture of kohl pencil is extremely soft and gentle. It effortlessly glides on my waterline as well as upper eye lids, however, it hardly stays intact on my oily eye lids and usually smudges and transfers after few hours irrespective of using primer. It does stay for good 4-5 hours on my waterline though.
I am slightly disappointed with this kohl liner as it tends to fade from my outer corner of eyes quickly within an hour and hence I need frequent touch ups with this kohl pencil. However, I like the fact that it does not smudge or transfer from my waterline for good hours, thereafter smudging & transferring a bit, but it is manageable.
It does not irritate or accentuate any issues hence I feel it is safe enough for most sensitive eyes. Considering its overall performance I feel it might be a good pick for gals with dry, combination skin while the rest can skip it, unless you are looking for exclusive waterline kohl liner like me.
Another drawback is that it needs sharpening, yet the sharpener is not included in packaging. I am still searching for an ideal sharpener since this pencil does not fit my usual loreal, bobbi brown sharpeners to my disappointment. Personally, I am not very impressed to get this kohl liner or any shades from this range again as I have many great options in Maybelline and Loreal for kohl pencil which are long lasting and almost fraction of this high end brand.
Let’s sum up pros and cons..
Pros of Make Up Forever Kohl Pencil 1K in Deep Black:

Cons of Make Up Forever Kohl Pencil 1K in Deep Black:
