L’Oreal Contour Kohl Aquatic Blue Review

L’Oreal Contour Kohl Aquatic Blue Review and swatches
Some of us can never have enough of eyeliners, so is with me!!. This pretty color caught my attention while browsing an online shopping site. so, today let's put this L’Oreal Contour kohl Eyeliner pencil under the limelight and see how it turns out to be.
The shade I have is Aquatic blue. Bright and suitable for those who love colored eyeliner pencils!

I realized that I use to like teal, greens and blues a lot but now the place is taken over by purples.. think of purple eyeliner ... the first brand comes to my mind is Faces.. recently bought a pretty purple eyeliner pencil From Faces.
Price-  350 INR for 3.5 g

Ingredients- All the ingredients are mentioned of the pencil itself and it was a long list so I am not writing it.. sorry! But they are there!!

Company claims- Combining oil and wax, l'oreal Contour Khol softly glides over the eyelid and it lasts for a long time. You can use Contour Khol inside or outside of the eyelid to draw attention to your eyes and achieve a glamorous eye make-up result. It is ophthalmologically tested, and can be removed easily with a standard make-up remover. 

Experience- I don’t know why I end up buying the similar shades everytime.. this happens with the lipsticks shades as well. So let me make a New Years’s resolution right now that I will try different shades too from now onwards, but the problem is .. there are only limited shades which I like on me!! :D
Okay, so, this is the Loreal contour Kohl in Aquatic blue which is a teal blue color. Very pretty and bright with fine shimmers so its not at all a dull matte looking color.It's rather metallic!
Pigmentation is decently average..nooo it's average only! I had to actually swipe it 2-3 times minimum to get the desired pigmentation. You can check that in the pictures!!
If you want a little comparison then they are less pigmented as compared with the faces eye liner pencils that gives the intense color in a single stroke.

It takes about 3-4 minutes to set and during that time if you will touch then it leaves impressions. So, it's like that "Don't' disturb me" phase of this eyeliner.
Moreover, if you have peacefully and patiently given it that much time, still you can't be sure that it's 100% smudgeproof..  
I do feel like as If Faces canada have spoiled me or us by giving their eyeliners range and like a standard product i keep on comparing every liner with theirs..:D Texture is less creamy and that is the reason, you have to actually swipe it 2-3 times.
I have not sharpen it so can't share my views on that!. 
But as per my experience it should not since it is not that creamy and surrounded by the wood instead of plastic like material.
I like its look very colorful !! 
And by the way this color is meant for those who can carry bright and bold shades on their eyes as you can see in the eye swatch photographs that how bright looking it is.especially during the day! Rest is your choice!:D

It's Staying power is average and can also be taken off with cleansing milk. You won't feel the need to use your makeup remover for this particular product!
 
It is waterproof to certain extent like when you splash water and don't rub it hard. Just pat dried!!
I have used it on the lower lash line and have not faced any irritation moreover, it also says that it is safe for the eyes but still I would say that you can try but be always cautious when you apply a makeup product on the lower lash line. I have sensitive eyes due to which I refrain myself from applying anything on the lower line.

By the way, it looks exactly like the Lakme Glide on eye color in Aqua Green.
Time to wrap up the review with the pros and cons:   
Pros of L’Oreal Contour Kohl Aquatic Blue
  • Easily available in other shades too
  • Texture is okay
  • Okay pigmentation, wish could have been more.
  • Does not settle in the fine lines. (I do have few fine lines)
  • Pricey for the claims it was not able to deliver
Cons of L’Oreal Contour Kohl Aquatic Blue
  • Could have been more pigmented
  • Formula could have been a little creamier
  • Average staying power
Rating- 3 out 5
My take: Beautiful color but sadly the product was pricey for the claims that the company made. It's decent but somehow I don't wish to try this range anymore with the experience I had with this one. even I will not want you to consider it, there are many other cheaper and effective ranges available.

  15. Lovely bright color! Off late I am observing L'Oreal products are priced way too high for the quality they are providing, when we have very similar (almost same) products available in other brands.

    1. I agree with you Gagan. I have also realized this that the same quality and quantity other brands are also offering but there is a noticeable difference in the prices. I like maybelline more as a brand if i keep in mind the quantity and quality at the same time.
      I am ready to pay that much but then the product should be exceptionally good na.:)
