Today was so muggy in Milan that by the time I got to the gym, I was already sweaty without any workout. On days like this, no T.LeClerc or Make Up For Ever HD powder can save my face from beading with perspiration. What I have do is gently pat my face with a tissue and re-apply powder in a couple of thin layers.
So, how did my Make Up For Ever khol pencils hold up? Very well on the waterline, and so-so on the upper lid, which I tight-lined. Even though some of the colour on the upper lid is gone by the end of the day, on the waterline the colour stays put perfectly. There is no smearing, and minimal smudging after a whole day.
By the way, this is the very first time I apply any eye product on the waterline and try tight-lining. I've always been very wary, but the khol pencils provide extreme comfort and cause no irritation whatsoever.
The black colour is beautifully sooty and glides on easily even if you don't apply with a steady hand. The cyan colour is very vibrant. (Please refer to photo here.) I got quite a few compliments since using them almost a week ago.
To remove the product, I dipped a cotton swab in some olive oil and carefully worked around my eyes. Cleansing is easy enough. Overall, I'm very happy with these khol pencils.
