Drugstore Find: Kohl Eyeliner
Finally! An inexpensive product that takes the guessing work out of applying eyeliner. L’Oreal’s HIP (High Intensity Pigments) Kohl Eyeliner is like an extremely pigmented, bold and finely milled loose powder stuffed into a tube with an extra long wand that completely absorbs the pigments for precise application.
The liner comes in 6 dramatic smudge-proof shades: burgundy, navy, teal, gold, brown and black. The velvety colors line and define any look, but are especially amazing when creating a smokey eye as the loose powder makes it ridiculously easy to blend. And this stuff stays… I mean, all day long.
But my favorite part of this liner has got to be the brush… after all, it’s always about the brush. It’s like a hard sponge that has some give to it so it moves nicely with the contours of your eyes. Application is so effortless, you can literally just dot on and blend a bit and still get a great looking line.
The only thing to be cautious of are the miscellaneous remnants of application feathering. The powder has a tendency to get a bit all over… I just put a piece of tissue under my eye before applying and it seems to do the trick.
