Givenchy Khôl Couture Waterproof
My daily make-up routine includes a kohl and lip balm. Yes, no base and no blush. I like to keep it quick and simple. While a black kohl pencil can be a bit boring, I enjoying defining my eyes with a pop of colour. I have stuck to this "look" for over ten years now and as a result have tried every coloured eye pencil out there. From MAC's powerpoint pencils to Marc Jacob's gel crayon, I have used them all.
I stumbled upon the Givenchy Khôl Couture Waterproof eyeliner pencils on a recent trip to Sephora. I was instantly drawn to the bright colourful tips with the white packaging in a sea of black box products. If you follow me on snapchat you know I tried out five of the six shades on my hand and left them there for an entire day. I loved how pigmented the colours were and the fact that even after washing my hands a few times, the colour didn't budge.
I went back the next day and picked up the two brightest shades, Turquoise and Jade. The eyeliner goes on easily, in one smooth gentle stroke. It has the ease and rich-pigment of a gel eyeliner; without the tedious application. Not only does this eyeliner look amazing, it actually lasts all day. It is said to resist humidity, which for someone who lives in Bombay is a big plus. I have watery eyes that tend to eat up any eye-make up that goes on my waterline. These eyeliners held up well on the waterline as well.
The eyeliner has been packaged in a retractable pencil and comes with an in-built sharpener at the base. Overall, this product exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to get the other shades, Cobalt, Chestnut, Lilac and Black.
