Review: Stila Kajal Eyeliner

Stila Kajal Eyeliner in Topaz

Product Info from Stila Cosmetics:
Kajal eye liners are formulated to mimic the ultra-soft texture of the indian eye darkener of the same name. The luscious formula is silky smooth and glides on perfectly, without dragging across the most fragile skin around the eye area. Delivers bold, clear, true color that blends easily and beautifies.

TIPS:
- Kajal Eye Liners can be used to line the inside lash line and can be applied over the entire lash line.
- Kajal Eye Liner in Topaz is a nude-peach hue that can be used inside the eye on medium to deep skin tones. You can also apply it over any lipstick shade to adjust the color.

- Can also be used as an eye shadow.

RETAIL PRICE: Php 600+. This shade is always OOS at Beauty Bar.

WEIGHT: 1.2 grams / 0.4 oz.

SHADES : Available in 8 shades.


PROS:
* very creamy formula
* no weird scent
* pigmented, glides easily without tugging the eye area.
* does not irritate my eyes
* brightens up my eyes without looking too harsh
* looks natural - no shimmers or glitters just a matte peachy-nude shade


CONS:
* a bit pricey - for reference, Prestige eyeliners costs around Php 200-300 only. Too bad they don't have a shade similar to this.
* Staying power is so-so. It starts to fade 2 hours after application.
* may clump on the lower lashes if not applied properly.


TIPS:
Nude colored eyeliner is an alternative to white eyeliner if the latter looks unnatural on you. If you're looking for an inexpensive nude colored eyeliner you want to check out Nichido's Girls night out eye pencil in Pink Diamond, though its not as creamy as Stila but it still brightens the eye area.


ADDICTION FACTOR:
Will not repurchase for now coz I have TONS of eyeliners to finish and this will last me a long time. I have mixed feelings about this eyeliner, I love how natural it looks but too bad the staying power is poor, but I don't mind reapplying =)


RATING : 2.8/5
