Hi Girls, I have always maintained and said that there are two things that I love in me; they are my “nails” and “eyes”. I can go on buying any number of nail paints and drool over any number of eyeliner/kohls. I am much more choosy about eyeliner/kohls obviously as our eyes are very sensitive and I wear contacts making them super sensitive.
I can’t leave home without sliding some trustworthy, long-staying kohl and rubbing some lip balm. I am insanely addicted to kohls/kajals. They brighten up and lit my face instantly 🙂
Anyways, so I had a mini haul of four shades of Kryolan Ikonic Gel Liner Pencil. Of course, nothing can replace the drama that black kohls create, but colored liners are equally tempting. So after reading all positive reviews about Kryolan Ikonic Gel Liner Pencil, I fell for not one but 5. I purchased 3 colored and 2 black eyeliner. I purchased a black since I am planning to do a giveaway, I have read it all around Indian blogs how it is difficult to find them, no, no retail stores expect and . So I thought I would pick up extra and put it on a giveaway so that atleast one more person has it 🙂
Back to review of Navy shade. Kryolan is a professional makeup line which is marketing a german brand “Ikonic”. They have an amazing array of colored gel liner pencils. Just sooo many to make you broke.
Price and Quantity : Rs 180 for 1.2 grams
My Experience with Kryolan Ikonic Gel Liner Pencil- Navy
The shade is exactly what the name says “Navy”. It is dark indigo blue in color. The pencil is not a twist up one but you need to sharpen it which wastes a lot of these darlings. In flash light the color is like bright dark blue but without flash it appears to be dark ink blue.
The pencil glides like dream, they are very smooth and soft. So do not be hard or apply pressure unnecessarily, chances are you will break the tip. I like dark kohls when it comes to waterline application. But gliding once only gives desired look which is very bold. However, I always apply it by double gliding, just to be sure.
They stay on waterline for 5 hours fresh like, after that they begin to break. They wont smudge or bleed from tear glands to embarrass you, they will just go lighter. I got compliments for this one :). Although it does a great job, the staying is not as great as compared to my HG Maybelline Gel Liner.
If you apply on your lid, you will have no complains. It stays for like ever. Very bold and distinct. There is no way you would repent this one. And for Rs 180 its like a mega clearance sale.
