~ RIMMEL Soft Kohl Eye Kajal Pencils, A Review ~
September 26, 2009
What: Rimmel of London, Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Liner Pencils. (NON-WATERPROOF)
Where: Can be purchased at Target.com, CVS.com, Ulta.com
Cost: Averages $3.75 USD
Packaging/Presentation: 1.2 gram pencil with removable cap
Purpose: Provide definition to upper and lower lashlines. Make eyes look larger or smaller depending on use.
Application: Very easy. Pencil is creamy and meant to be smudged in for a softly defined look. No tugging or pulling. I advise small dashes close to lashlines and smudging with a small dense brush or qtip. Can be set for longer wear with an eyeshadow in a similar shade for a soft blurred effect.
Wear: Wears well, especially when set with a powder shadow in a similar shade.
Recommended for: Soft and natural looks, smokey eye looks, everyday wear, those who enjoy variety in colors, affordability and accessibility. NOT recommended for use on waterline as it is not waterproof and will run.
Purchase Again? I may purchase again. Not a *must have* for me with so many comparable brands available, but when on offer for BUY ONE, GET ONE FREE it is an unbeatable deal for pencils you can use daily.
*A sharper line creates a thinner application and a blunt pencil will create a thicker line.
*You will need a sharpener for this pencil.
*Keep sanitary by lightly spritzing the tip with at least 70% Isopropyl alcohol once weekly and allowing to dry before recapping.
Jet Black-061 , Sable Brown-011, Green Shimmer-035 and Denim Blue-021
Several other colors are available. I also purchased the PURE WHITE-021 and use it in the inner tear duct area to lighten and brighten eyes on tired days.
