Make Up For Ever #8K Khol Pencil

Make Up For Ever #8K Khol Pencil ($17.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “navy blue sheen.” It’s not navy blue; it’s a blackened violet purple with blue micro-shimmer.  I couldn’t think of a dupe within the purple eyeliners that came to mind.   The color payoff was good but not as intense as other shades I’ve tried in this formula.  Though, to put things into context, this is one of the better pigmented purple eyeliners, which are notorious, as a group and across brands and price points, to have mediocre payoff.  It also has a drier texture, even compared to #4K.

Make Up For Ever #4K Khol Pencil

Make Up For Ever #4K Khol Pencil ($17.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “deep green.”  It’s a rich green-teal with very subtle blue and teal micro-shimmer.  The shimmer is just barely noticeable.  It yields great color payoff in a single pass, which is always good news when it comes to an eyeliner.  It’s the closest I’ve come to finding a dupe to Prescriptives Blue Grotto. It’s a bit greener than NARS Kaliste.

Make Up For Ever #1K Khol Pencil

Make Up For Ever #1K Khol Pencil ($17.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “deep black.”  It’s a rich black with a creamy finish; no real sheen or shine, so it appears mostly matte once applied.  This liner from the brand is supposed to be “exceptionally smooth” and work well for both the lash line and lower water line. According to Sephora, it is a blend of vegetable lipids, vitamin E, mango seed oil, hydrogenated cottonseed oil, and jojoba oil.  When I tried to figure out just how long this was supposed to wear, Make Up For Ever actually said for long-lasting results to dust a loose powder or use their makeup seal over it.
