Laura Mercier Kohl Eye Pencils Review and Swatches

Laura Mercier’s  Kohl Eye Pencils are favourites of a lot of people and I can totally see why.

I have five (mini) pencils and would like to show them to you today.

The colours that I have are:  Black Violet, Brown Copper, Stormy Grey, Stone Slate and Black  Gold. And here is how they looks like.

These have a very soft and creamy texture and glide on easily, without dragging the skin.  They have a fantastic pay off and gorgeous colours. Yes, the colours are definitely fantastic, all five of them! I imagine that blue and green shades are to die for, as well!

I would suggest kohl pencils for a quick smoky eye, you could use them on their own or with the eye shadows on top, looks great either way.

Rave:Bourjois Effet Smoky Pencil Review and Swatches of All Shades

I’ve wanted to get some Bourjois eye liners for quite a long time and this week I’ve finally managed to do it! There were so many different types and colours that I just had to get 2 of them.

And one of them was Bourjois Effet Smoky Eye Pencil.

Here is what they say:

“Double-tipped eyeliner to smudge for a perfect every day smoky look! A smoky look available in 5 deep and intense shades achievable in 2 simple steps: 1) Outline the eye with the pencil 2) Smudge with the brush Its soft, easy-to-blend tip glides along the lashline for an intense outline in one stroke. Its ultra soft brush made of natural bristles perfectly smudges the formula. The result: a subtle but incredibly sexy smoky look in just 2 steps!”

There are 5 shades available:

(description of shades are mine obviosly)

  • 71 Smoked Brown – the most beautiful  dark chocolate brown with shimmer, it reminds me of my HG Benefit shadows only a bit darker.
  • 72 Dark Purple – gorgeous dark purple with shimmer, it looks amazing in the sunlight.
  • 73 Deep Green – Deep Teal would be a better name for this shade, it’s a deep teal with blue/green undertones, amazing when blended.
  • 74 Grey Shadow – quite a dark grey, the most shimmery shade out of all 5.
  • 75 Intense Black – intense matte black.

I have to say that I loved all the colours a lot but I had to calm down and pick one so I’ve got #73 in Deep Green because that’s the most unique shade out of all (in my opinion). But this doesn’t mean that I won’t get more shades 😉

So what are my thoughts about the product?
