Review: Elite Paris Intense Kajal Smoky Effect Kohl

Holy moly mother of hazes. I know it’s really cliched to start my blog post with something related to the weather, but hey, don’t all socially-awkward situations start with it anyway? heh.

Anyhoos, the weather’s been going bonkers in Singapore lately – I’ve probably inhaled so much PM2.5 that my lungs are covered with black soot / dirt by now. Sigh. So much for being so proud of the fact that I’ve never smoked a single cigarette in my life.

Since my body isn’t in its best state at the moment, it’s time to pile on the makeup – you know, to make myself seem more human-like in case I get chopped by someone who thinks the haze is an impending zombie apocalypse. Here’s something I received some time back (I first saw the products at the Watsons Beauty Day out).

I say…

This is more of a shadow than an eyeliner.

  • It functions the same way as a lipstick – a twist-out cone-shaped kajal.
  • My lids are usually oily, and most liners don’t stay long, but this one slips away almost as quickly as someone pretending to fall asleep on the MRT.
  • I prefer to use it by smudging it out. As you can see, it gives a lovely grey shade – note, not black.
  • It also glides on easily and smudges out smoothly and doesn’t pull my skin.
  • Don’t over-layer it cos it’ll just look like you got punched trying to snatch a seat on the train during peak hour.
  • It stays on an average of 3-4 hours? Not sure if it’s cos of my oillids though.
  • To lengthen the staying power, use a primer or dust on some eyeshadow.

In general, it’s a pretty simple product –  an eyeshadow in the kohl stick form that’s easy to use. A little iffy for touching up in public cos I don’t like to use my hands on my face outdoors.  Available at Watsons.
