When I hear something is flying off the shelves, I immediately want to get my hands on it. We always want what we can’t have, right? So, when I heard that the new Esteé Lauder ‘Pure Color’ Intense Kajal Eye Crayon (especially the teal shade), was going to be hard to find, I ran out to pick up both of the available shades.
This is the same idea as the Guerlain ‘Terracotta – Terra Inca’ Khôl Kajal, but the Esteé Lauder offers more precision via a true pencil/crayon packaging. The shorter, chubbier crayon is actually easier to handle and maneuver than a traditional long eyeliner pencil. The included sharpener ensures you will always have a sharp point to get fine line. But the formula also works great if you want to blend out for a smokier look.
The Dramatic Teal is fresh and vibrant on the lower inner-rim of the eyelash. I also have been wearing the Dramatic Black along my top lash line with just a touch of smudge. For a product that isn’t waterproof, I am surprised how much staying power these pencils have. And the colors are incredibly rich and velvety. Let’s just say, I’m glad I got my paws on these while they were still around.
