This review is done for Poornima:)
I bought Loreal Kohl mineral much before the Aisha collection was released.Though I went to buy loreal eye liner and loreal eye pencil but ended up buying this.I have a mixed review of this kohl powder and therefore it took me long time to understand it.
This is my first purchase of kohl powder and I will call it is a versatile product.I can use it on my lower lashline , smudge it for a smoky eye look and various other things which one can think of with a kohl powder.When S.A showed me this one I asked her how will I apply it on my lower lash line eyes and she immediately showed me .I guess she was perfectly trained to use it because She applied it beautifully on her lower lashline.
Packaging of the product is really cute and quite interesting too only thing is that we have to be extra extra careful while using it.When I used it for the first time it was all under my eyes.Thank God it didn’t sting my eyes.
But still I have tried using it and some how I found out some of the best way to use this kohl powder and now I am kinda liking this product.What I do is I take a dash of kohl powder on my make up brush and then spray water, toner and some time MAC fix on it.I apply it on my eyes and then do my smoky look with this one.It hardly takes a minute as there is not much of smudging required.Check out my look below with this trick.I kept the look little light for every day use .I generally wear this look when I am going out for shopping or meeting my friend and most people have asked me what I have used on my eyes.
Loreal mineral kohl Price- 450-500(I don’t remember exactly)I didn’t find the quantity also mentioned on the product.
It is available in following colors:-
Loreal Black kohl eyeliner
Loreal Stellar Grey kohl eyeliner
Loreal Meteorite Blue kohl eyeliner
Afterwards I started using it on many of my make up looks and liked it too.I used it on my Britney sprears inspired make up look .If you look at the swatch below you will find the color quiet beautiful but with the color notice the fall also.You got to be really really careful while using it.
My lotus Kajal has started smudging on my eyes so what I do is I apply a dash of it on my lower lashline and then it doesn’t smudge at all.So if you are a working woman and want your kohl to stay for long whole day then you can use it.
Some likes and disliked of the product:-
1.I carried it while coming from from Hyderabad to Delhi and the cute packaging broke down.It is not a travel product at all.
2.It spreads every where so got to be VERY careful while handling it.
3.I really like the smoky look which it gives me so that is the only reason I like it.
4.The brush which comes with the powder is quiet good provided you are care full with the quantity which you take out from it.
5.I find it little overly priced.
6.It can be removed easily but has long staying power.
Worth A buy-I am not sure I don’t hate the product but I don’t think I will recommend people to buy it.If you are some one who is really fond of smoky eyes then you can think of giving it a try.
Like it, hate it or love it?— Can I pass this question this time please:P
Will you purchase it again-Mmm if I do not find a better product then I will.
All in all this is a product which might comes out as a useful one for some and some might find it as a total disaster.
