Sephora Kohl Expert Review
Sephora Kohl Expert Review
Hello ladies, I hope all of you are doing well and enjoying the winter!
A few months back, I had gone to Ikea and there when I saw the Sephora at Dubai festival city, I just had to go in. there was just so much I had to buy but I was a good girl and bought just one eyeliner. Today I will be reviewing the Sephora kohl expert.
What the company claims:
Kohl Expert is a deeply pigmented eye pencil. This richly-hued pencil smoothes on in seconds without pulling or tugging on the delicate eye area and stays put all day.
Sephora Kohl Expert is easily available and I have seen it at Sephora almost every time I’ve been there.
I couldn’t find them ):
My thoughts on Sephora Kohl Expert:
Not all of you must have known this but I love wearing eyeliner, especially on the waterline and then smudging it lightly for a soft look. Hence, I have tried numerous different brands, types and colors of pencil eyeliners. I have this particular pencil eyeliner in the shade 01, noir artist. When I got this and used it for the very first time, I really liked it! The application is just beautiful and extremely smooth. It goes on like a dream and I don’t need to tug at my eyes or pull or anything. The texture is EXTREMELY creamy therefore you get the easy application. I wouldn’t say that it is overly creamy; I think it’s just right. The color is quite dark and intense as you can see in the pictures. Even in one light stroke, it comes of pretty dark and in multiple strokes it turns out to be a pitch black. I don’t think that this pencil can be used as a base but it can be smudged easily on the upper and lower lash line for a Smokey effect. This eyeliner was able to pass through the heat test and stayed put without any creasing on my eyelids for approximately 5 hours. It does not say that it was waterproof anywhere on the pencil however even after splashing some water and rubbing gently, it didn’t run down. It just lightly faded.
Once applied, it tends to start fading after about 4-5 hours and then starts getting uneven and cracked after 6-7 hours. If you are going to be wearing it longer than that, you must carry it for touch ups. I wouldn’t recommend due to this. Another negative is the fact that it is very difficult to sharpen. I have tried sharpening it so many times but I can’t get it to sharpen to a point. Thus, for lining I have to use the edge which can be tricky at times if you are opting for a thin line look.
Pros of Sephora Kohl Expert:
• Is super smooth to apply due to its very creamy texture.
• Very easy to blend or smudge for a soft look.
• Quite a few shades available
• Lasts a decent amount of time even in the Dubai heat and doesn’t start to spread all over the face.
• It is waterproof, as in it doesn’t start spreading on contact with water.
• Not super expensive
• Very good pigmentation. In just one swipe you get a deep, rich color.
Cons of Sephora Kohl Expert:
• Fades on rubbing even gently.
• Not an extremely long staying power and it gets very uneven after 6 hours.
• Must be carried for touch ups throughout the day.
• Is quite difficult to sharpen to a fine point due to its creamy texture.
• Gets tricky to draw a fine line with this liner.
I would recommend this to someone who doesn’t mind retouching every 5 hours or so. Also this would be a good choice for beginners since it’s very easy to apply and and doesn’t need a lot of skill. Plus it isn’t a very pricey option.
I wouldn’t mind repurchasing since I personally don’t have a problem with touch ups. Also I have been eyeing a few of their other colors.
I give it a 4 on 5.
