Clarins Crayon Khol in 05 Intense Violet Review and Swatches

I was given two  products from the upcoming Clarins Autumn collection to show you and I would like to start with the Crayon Khol as it is a brand new product.

There are eight shades and I have 05 Intense Violet.

I  have been wearing it every day for the past week and am ready to share my impression.

In terms of the formula – it is a soft and smooth pencil which glides on the skin without dragging or pulling it. As for the pigmentation – it is great, as well.  You get a nice colour pay-off and deep shade with one swipe.  Clarins Crayon Khol in 05 Intense Violet Review and Swatches

But what about the staying power?

As you would imagine, it would fade and smudge a bit after several hours, as most (all?) crayons with such formula would.

But since I don’t use this khol to create crisp line and like to smudge it anyway with the little brush it comes with, which works great, I don’t mind at all.  Besides, if you want long-lasting staying products – gels and liquids are your best friends.

Tip: to make it last longer you could use a good base and seal it with an eye shadow of the same colour.

I think  Crayon Khol (£17) is a great addition to the brand’s cosmetics line, they are perfect for a several-seconds-smoky-eyes and for defining the eyes in general. Now they only need to bring out some gel liners, too.

And if you are curious about the 3 Dot eye liner – I have a review, as well.
