Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil is one of my all-time favourites. The kohl is soft and glides easily without pulling the skin. It's so easy to use I only need one stroke to apply!
The rich pigment stays on for hours. It works well for eyelining and tight-lining, on it's own or smudged to give a softer effect.
Currently I have:
- 031 Jungle Green: dark green with slight metallic effect. It's my favourite as it makes my brown eyes really stands out.
- 024 Cool Blue: trendy electric blue. Sometimes I apply it underneath kit cosmetics Mineral Bronzer to tone down the colour for when I'm not feeling so bright.
- 071 Pure White: I don't like this one. The colour just doesn't look right on my eyes, I looked as if I had tip-ex on. Somehow the quality isn't as good as the rest in the range.
Sharpening the pencils could be a messy affair due to the softness of the kohls. I was so frustrated when I had to spend a long time cleaning my sharpeners when that happened. Fortunately popping them in the freezer before sharpening solved this problem.
Verdict: an affordable good quality eye pencil. Avoid the Pure White though...
