Sephora Long Lasting Kohl Pencil Review & Swatches

Sephora Long Lasting Kohl Pencil Eyeliner

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.

No likey.

But those with oily lids?

Swatch it in store!

Maybe you’ll like it!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    You should definitely try their Contour Eye Pencil-it’s creamy, pigmented and lasts longer on me than Urban Decay does.

    The tugging is what would put me off. I don’t care how purdy and matte black you are, I don’t want to be dragging and pressing hard with a pencil along my lash lines. I’m all about creamy dreamy eyeliner myself. :]
