I found this amazing pencil eyeliner a few months ago. The L’Oreal Contour Kohl pencil eyeliner is soft and easy to apply. I bought it in 131, Jet Black. It gives a nice, even line which stays on for about 3 to 4 hours even without applying a base primer or eyeshadow. It can be smudged and I use it on its own to create a smokey eye.

It’s great as a basic black eyeliner and gives you a line that looks almost as good as one made with a liquid liner. I love this liner and I would definitely buy it again.

Even application

The tip does not break easily

It is not smudge-proof (However, this was plus point in my eyes, I don’t like smudge-proof liners.)
I couldn’t find it in any fun colours like blue or purple

L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes - Extra Black

I bought Volume Million Lashes by L’Oreal when I was still learning how to apply mascara quickly enough so it does not dry while I’m still applying it. Being a mascara that is not waterproof, it doesn’t dry up very fast and so I have the option of doing it slowly.

I love this mascara as the wand is very good for achieving an even application even if it is your first time with mascara. The wand is like a comb and so I don’t have to wiggle the wand through my lashes as much as otherwise to separate them. It is not a very volumizing mascara so I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone looking for lashes you could sweep the floor with. Maybe it’s the wand type. However, as a basic mascara, it works just fine. I have rather sparse lashes and this mascara wand works very well for me. Also, it’s tapered so I can get to the lashes at the corners easily.

The opening of the Volume Million Lashes mascara tube is designed in such a way that the excess on the wand is wiped off as you are pulling it out. That way you don’t have to mess up the neck of the tube by wiping off the excess. The only part that does need to wiped off is the tip of the brush.

The one thing I regret is that it doesn’t seem to be available in any other colours besides black. I would have liked a blue or brown.
