Chambor Loose Kohl Powder Black Review


Wise She Mega NYX Giveaway Entry 9 By Upasana

Hi beauties !

Today I’m going to review Chambor Loose Kohl Powder in black. First of all, loose kohl powder as it suggests, the product is a loose powder. Loose Kohl Powder is Chambor’s Innovation (from chambor’s website). It is a loose, ultra fine powder which helps create a mysterious look for eyes. I was looking for a single black e/s before I settled for this one from chambor, although it’s a kohl powder, but serves 2 purposes. It is not an intense black color, but mostly a charcoal color and I have used this is in few of my tutorial too.

  • Packaging :– It comes in a very small vial type container, with a sponge tip applicator. The quantity is 1.9gms, which sounds very less, but I’ve had it for like 6months or so, I still have a lot of product left.


What Chambor claims:-

  • Two – In – One effect: Can be used both as Eyeliner and Eye Shadow.
  • The modern Kohl is both sophisticated and simple because it is easy to use.
  • Water Resistant: Long Lasting Effect.
  •  Vitamin Enriched: Vitamin – E & A.
  • No Animal Ingredients.
  • Non – Comedogenic.
  • Available in 2 shades – Black and Blue



I’ve transferred some amount in one of my empty eyeshadow pan.


My verdict about Chambor Loose Kohl Powder Black


  • As far as two-in-one effect is concerned, it can definitely be used as Eyeliner and eye shadow, but when I used it on my waterline it smudges greatly to its extreme K .
  • As far it has to be used as an eye shadow, it is good, because that was what my requirement when I bought it. Although it smudges and will crease a lot if not used with a primer.
  • It is not at all water resistant :-/ :no:  :duh:
  • The claim of Vitamin A & E ? I don’t really believe so, as I have sensitive eyes too, and each and every time I use it as kohl, it gets into my eyes and stings K  😥
  • Its good if they don’t have any animal ingredients 😀 :yes:
  • It says non-comedogenic, according to Merriam-webster website it means not tending to block pores, but seriously how can it clog or block pores on eyes lol 😀


Kohl Powder India Chambor

Okay lets see its swatch:-

  • Price: Rs.350/- (I’m not sure, but this was the price that strike my mind 😛 , between Rs.300-350/-)
  • Rating: 3/5

Overall, its an average product, not too bad and not too great. I usually use it as an eyeshadows, but as it is ‘kohl’, therefore I found it totally :no: like a kohl 🙂 ,  moreover is expensive for a small vial of kohl powder which doesn’t delivers all what it claims. Also it falls a lot. It’s not a huge disappointment, but just an average product, which is serving the purpose as a black eye shadow for me.

Have you tried any loose kohl powder?

Godbless 🙂
