I’ve been on a never ending hunt for the perfect black eyeliner for a long time. A lot of them are too scratchy (Laval) not pigmented enough or just end up a mess and I love wearing black eyeliner on my waterline and tightline so I picked up the L’oreal Contour Kohl to try.
In terms of price I can’t actualy remember what this cost but I got it from a wholesale store and remember it being priced around the three or four pound mark. Packaging is pretty standard for a kohl eyeliner and I don’t have anything in particular to say about it.
In terms of colour payoff this is quite pigmented and is a more intense black rather than the grey black of most eyeliner kohls which I really like. This does glide onto the waterline which is also nice although it isn’t as creamy or as soft as the Rimmel London Scandaleyes range.
My main bugbear with this is the longevity, this isn’t waterproof and runs all the time even if it isn’t raining which is incredibly frustrating. I’ve had other eyeliners that have not run as bad but the minute I’ve applied this on my waterline I apply my concealer and the eyeliner runs so bad (without my eyes watering) that my concealer turns into a grey sludgy mess.
Overall I’m disappointed with this eyeliner, it didn’t live up to my expectations and I wouldn’t repurchase or recommend it. This has been discontinued but is still available here.
