So, truth be told, I’m no makeup whiz. This first time I tried L’Oreal Kohl Eyeliner in Gold Kohl and Navy Kohl, I just lined my top lid like I would with a regular pencil liner and it was a total mess! I got fallout from the liner ALL OVER my eyes. When I tried to wipe it off, it smudged into a black streaky mess. I looked like a raccoon. I had to use makeup remover to wipe the whole thing off.
I was so bummed. I really wanted to love these eyeliners because the packaging is cute and the colors are gorgeous. I mean, gorgeous.
Then I read some reviews online that these eyeliners are better suited to line your waterline. So the following day, I tried that. It worked much better. And lasted all day, which is rare. It seems like when I apply other liners on my waterline, it only takes a few minutes before they wear off.
I tried the Gold Kohl first, it is a super luxe, metallic, shimmery shade. I have brown eyes and on me, this was just a nice pop of color. Gorgeous!
Navy Kohl is much more intense. It almost looks like a soft black, but has a little shimmer to it, which is really pretty. This liner would be great for night time makeup.
I also lined my top lid, but this time I used an angled brush. I just dipped the brush onto the Kohl eyeliner and it worked fine.
My only other problem with this product is that mine came unsealed. I’ve read online that they are sold unsealed too. That’s just gross for an eye product, in my opinion.
