It took me a while to review these but better late than never. The Mikyaji Kohl pencils are a hit or miss? Want to know? Read along.
So I had a haul post previously on Mikyaji products and it was one of the most viewed post I had. Never knew a lot would be interested. You can check the post here.
Kohl pencils were among the few items I purchased.
01 Black Dawn- the black
03 Blazing Red- the red of course
06 Emerald Eyes- the green
- easy to apply
- retractable/twist up
- beautiful packaging
- very cheap on sale
- The Emerald Eye is very long-lasting
- Emerald eye doesn’t smudge at all
- The black is a very intense shade
- lot of product in the tube
- The black shade is not smudge-proof
- The black shade easily disappears
- When applied on waterline, the black shade smears
- The black pencil is definitely not lasting.
So conclusion is, the black shade is not that good if you are looking for a smudge proof liner(a big no for water and tight lining) but it can be a very good liner to be applied on the lid for a cat wing look and set with an eyeshadow OR can be a very good eyeshadow base for dark colors. The Emerald Eyes shade, which is a green shade was the best product I picked. It stays long, doesn’t smear or smudge, color is intense and everything good if you are into greens. ( Check swatch here)Regarding the red shade, I am still in a love/hate relationship with it as am in the process of understanding it until now. I haven’t used it as eyeliner but have used as lip liner. The color is very pigmented which makes it a very good base for lipstick. I have yet to try on the eyes to give my honest review on it. I love that these pencils are retractable and won’t go through the headache of having to sharpen it all the time and very few good quality drugstore brands offer that.
I got these pencils for AED9 each on sale this DSF which I believe was a very good price for the Mikyaji 22k range as their quality is really good.
