In this post, I’m reviewing a blue pencil eyeliner from the latest L’Oreal Paris Color Riche collection launched at the time of Cannes Film Festival 2013.
I have been a black-eyeliner-black-kohl girl, since the time I can remember. I don’t frequently like to use colored eyeliners. Sometimes, I do go in for a colored pencil on the lower lash line, but that’s about it.
Let’s move on to the review of the L’Oreal Color Riche Le Khol in Portofino Blue.
About L’Oreal Color Riche Le Khol- Portofino Blue: Intensity, comfort, precision.
Price: Rs. 350 for 1.6g
Packaging: The kohl pencil is a wooden, sharpenable pencil, the body of which is color coded as per the color of the product. A thick golden strip near the sharpening end pf the pencil and golden letters everywhere add a luxe feel to the product. The pencil has a transparent plastic cap. Travel friendly.
My take on L’Oreal Color Riche Le Khol- Portofino Blue: I’ve been using this pencil for quite some time now, ever since I received it. The shade is a little difficult to describe in words (if you Google Portofino Blue, a certain shade of Blue, slightly lighter than royal blue, is known as Portofino Blue+ there’s a place called Portofino in Italy!). So this pencil from L’Oreal is a slightly brighter version of the Portofino Blue that I see online. It has good pigmentation, glides smoothly, without any major pulling and tugging, and has an amazing staying power of about 6 hours without smudging on my oily lids (as an eyeliner).
On the lower lash line, it doesn’t sting or irritate the eyes, and wears comfortably for about 3-4 hours. Owing to the staying power on my oily lids, I can safely say that these are one of the best pencil eyeliners I’ve tried.
EOTD: I’ve worn this shade as an eyeliner and kohl in the below pic.
Pros of L’Oreal Color Riche Le Khol- Portofino Blue:
