Sephora Long Lasting Kohl Pencil sounds positively dreamy at nine bucks each. Available in six shades I was rather tickled that a Sephora product was actually so cheap! I mean this is along the lines of pricing you’d see from products like L’Oreal Colour Riche By Pencil Perfect Eyeliner.
And since I have a rather ok relationship with Sephora products lately I was hopeful these would be a win. Especially when the shade Intense Black passed by desk recently.
As much as I want to love Sephora Long Lasting Kohl Pencil it’s not really the eye pencil for me. This is a drier, matte texture which drags rather badly across my lash line. I think if you like matte formulas you’ll be used to this texture but I personally prefer a creamy eyeliner.
I was however, thinking that it sets to a great finish with an intense black pigment and this led me to think, “gee I bet oily lids will love this!” So it just might be redeemable! One thing I will say is that as I swatched it I thought that this had almost as much pigment as Urban Decay Perversion just in a more matte version!
Unfortunately, if you prefer something with an easier glide, a creamier easy to smudge formula, and something that does not tug as you apply I’d recommend skipping.
But those with oily lids?
Swatch it in store!
Maybe you’ll like it!
