See it through my Eyes

Though this one of the expensive kohl’s by a drugstore brand, I always wanted to try it secretly waiting for a mega online offer Blum 3 and one fine day it did come in 30% off and then there was no looking back. This is already my 2nd pencil. It s not that you can close the window and predict it’s a 5 on 5 product I must get it. But I want you to know how good it is.


This is regular non-retractable pencil, but it is dual ended. On one side we have the product, while the self attached smudger at the other end. Both ends are secured with a cap, wherein the smudger is capped transparent to differentiate the ends. Unlike Maybelline, the details of shelf etc are mentioned on the kajal body which makes me extremely happy. We can’t store the plastic sheets when we want to know the expiry date right?  The pencil can be little difficult to sharpen due to its plastic body, but a little pressure can ease it all.


This is by far the smoothest kajal I have used; it just glides on the eyes as you move your hand across the waterline. There is no need to put any effort with this kohl. The smudger is good as it smudges the kajal so beautifully that you don’t need any brush. Perfect smoky eyes can be achieved with just this one pencil. 

The smudger is made of rubber. It is tapered and sleek to fit the eyes so well. Be it the lower lash line or the upper lash line, it is flexible to blend the color and smooth enough which doesn’t cause irritation on the skin. The edges are tapered and designed so well as to fit different parts of the eyes. It can easily fit to the inner corners too. 

Color Pay off

It is immensely black and opaque in one glide. On the waterline, one glide is enough if you want a sharp look. You can go ahead and intensify it with layering and widening. On the upper lash line too it works wonderfully. You can refer the pictures to know how it performs.

Staying Power

It stays for 8 hours minimum, even on the waterline. On the upper lash line the kohl just doesn’t budge, it stays as I had applied it in the morning. My eye lids become oily still the kohl remains as it is.

Smudge Test

Once it sets, it doesn’t budge unless you have very watery eyes. But it can surpass that too if it is layered well on such eyes. It doesn’t smudge unless you rub your eyes vigorously.

My Story

Let me tell you my lust story for this kohl Air kiss Each time I apply it, I tell myself “No, Khushi, this time let it be clean winged liner, don’t smudge it. No! No! “. But each time, I can’t control myself and I end up doing a smoky look. Why, you ask? That’s because it is so easy to blend and do a smoky look with this kajal which has a smudger too. It is not that this is the only kajal which comes with a smudger, but this is the only one I own which is super smooth and creamy unlike others in my kitty (Avon) I also use the Colorbar Just Smoky Kajal, but those are colored. So I keep coming back to this for a classic black smoky look.

For waterline, I glide it from the outer edge towards the inner corner and leave it right after I paint 3/4th of the eye. For daily wear, I don’t fill my entire waterline. Taking the smudger just lightly glides it on the applied area and little beyond, to create that perfect smoky look. 

On the upper lash line, after applying the eye shadow I glide the kohl close to the lashes and draw a smooth line. For perfect smudged look, smudge the lash line and beyond with the smudger.

I carry this kajal for my travel as it reduces tools in my stash. I can acheive smoky look with this kajal anywhere anytime I want.
