I wear eyeliner on the lower lash line or waterline almost every single day so as you can imagine I am quite particular about the liners I choose to wear. They must not smudge and that is the first and most important requirement, I honestly do not wish to end up looking like a Panda as I am sure that I would not be as cute. I have been there before and I am trying to avoid going there ever again. Other qualities a liner must have is the fact that they need to be soft. The eyeliner needs to be soft enough so that you can apply it without feeling like you are scratching the incredibly sensitive skin around your eyes. Trust me, it happens so often that a liner is so hard that you need to apply a little bit of pressure and is rough on the skin. However, it does tend to happen mostly where waterproof eyeliners are concerned and by logical deduction you reached the conclusion: waterproof eyeliner are the ones that also do not smudge usually which put people such as myself in a bad situation thus making it incredibly difficult to find a good liner.
When I got to try out the Lancome Le Crayon Khol I was super nervous, I mean I did not want to get my hopes up only to end up disappointed yet again. I have been disappointed by bigger and better brands in the past. To my complete surprise, the Lancome liner is actually amazing. It is a pencil type and not crayon type, but it is soft enough to apply with ease and in addition, it stays put for quite long periods of time. You might need to retouch throughout the day, but that is absolutely fine. The liner itself does not make it top number one on my list of preferences, but it is up there without a doubt. The one drawback is the price tag. The price is in the normal range for a high quality liner and you should definitely go for something high quality considering just where you are applying it, but I did try good ones that were half the price. On the other hand, you do not need to buy one every single day so the splurge might be worth it in the grand scheme of things. Dramatic much?Maybe.
Before you ask me, I do think it is better than the Highliner from Marc Jacobs. Sorry MJ!
Which is your favourite eyeliner?
