Review: Inglot Kohl Pencil.

Inglot, Inglot, oh, Inglot. I have wanted to try out this Polish brand ever since I saw Julia Graf use their products and rave about them. Add good quality, quantity, hues and reasonable prices and you've got me sold. Some might say that these factors are applicable to many brands. However, Inglot has such an ace up its sleeve that other brands may or may not be able to cope up with it: the Freedom system. You can basically create an eye, blush, lip, concealer or foundation palette of your choice. You can choose the colours you want and assign them as duos, trios, quads or even larger palettes accommodating more than 50 colours. You can even choose two eyeshadows, one lip colour and two blushes or three eyeshadows, two lip colours and so forth. The choice is entirely yours. And with a reasonable price tag, you get to have it all and even save some money for a cupcake party with all your friends.

Anyway, I will write more about the Freedom System in a later post. Now, let us concentrate on the product of the moment: Inglot's Kohl Pencil in '01', which I assume is the code for a standard black colour. This was purchased on a whim. I convinced my mother to give it a whirl, seeing how she uses eyeliner or a kohl pencil regularly. This particular kohl pencil is 650 rupees for 1.2 gm/0.04 US oz

The kohl pencil is buttery and glides on like a dream. It's amazing to use on your waterline, as a base for a dark, smokey eye or to tight-line. So, yeah, it is very much multi-purpose. It is extremely dark, rich and highly pigmented. I guess, it is justified that it has to be sharpened since it is called a kohl pencil, not an eyeliner. It is smudge-proof and waterproof. Trust me, the swatch you see in the photo above lasted for at least 36 hours after showering and all that jazz. Yes, it's that good. If you've got an Inglot near your place, you can most definitely invest in this.

Until next time,
take care.
