Lancome Le Crayon Khol Eyeliner Pencil Black Ebony Review
Lancome Le Crayon Khol Black Ebony is pitch black very creamy eyeliner that comes in wooden pencil packaging. This khol pencil is longer than regular Kajal pencils.Brands normally do this to justify the product that goes waste while sharpening the wooden pencil. Fresh precision tip is the upside of wooden pencil over retractable ones. However Formula of Le Crayon Khol is so soft that while sharpening I never get a precision tip. I am not denying here the product wastage here which even hurts more for 26$ eye pencil. Tip of the pencils is kept safe and hygienic with golden cap that shuts tight. Lancome Le Crayon has very very creamy texture and it applies on lids/water lines hassle free without tug . It quit reminds me texture of a Desi ghee Silai Surma, my grandmother used to make at home from oil soot.
It applies intense black on lids in single stroke . The creamy texture goes against the smudge less finish. It smudges the moment I wear it and my lids are not crazy oily either. It can go crazy smudge-y on oily lids. I therefore prefer to use it to create subtle smokey eyes or as a base for dramatic smokey eye makeup looks. I will not take this against the Khol pencil as the Lancome describes it as the smudgy eye pencil itself.It gives intense pigmentation on single stroke,glides effortlessly and blends seamless. My eyeshadows also blend nicely on top of this creamy kohl creating the flawless smouldering effect.
I mostly wear it for creating subtle smoldering or dramatic smokey eyes.When used as an eyeliner , I set it up with black eyeshadow-MAC Carbon for smudge free extended wear. It lasts on me for 8+ hours without looking patchy or fading.
VANILLA RATINGS 8/10
Lancome Le Crayon Khol Black Ebony is pitch black very creamy eyeliner “sharpenable” pencil. It is best put in use for creating smokey eyes. It is smudgy eyeliner which blend well on it own and with eyeshadows. It does what it says. Unlike other smudge free liners, which may set fast ,Lancome Le Crayon Khol never settles down to smudge free finish and gives non patchy seamless finish to overall eye makeup once blended.Lancome is not easily available in India and this is expensive eyeliner pencil.
