I just got the eye kohl…very interesting how you can’t sharpen it or anything. I asked what would happen after it gets dulled down, and she wasn’t sure! She said it’s supposed to “keep it’s shape for the most part.” It’s got a good shape to get up in the upper waterline though. I’ve only used it once, but so far, so good.

the kohl looks very interesting. i’ve seen similar in youtube but still makes me curious how to work it. i like the packaging as well. the guerlain crest, symbol, sign??? looks classy. i’ve never own anything from guerlain but i will soon.

I just got the Rouge Sultan one. It is absolutely amazing. It makes MAC Russian Red lipstick look like a complete joke. It is SOOOOO pigmented that it should not be called a gloss. It stays on through drinking and light eating as well. Non-drying too, that’s important.

i think you are supposed to use the khol in the traditional way. As in, holding it horizontally, holding it just close enough to your eye to touch your waterlines, closing your eyes and then swiping the khol across. That way it doesn’t lose its point, since you are not using it vertically.

I hope that wasn’t confusing. lol

Looks nice, but I’m not tempted by this collection. Just as well as I got a lot of things from the spring collection! :O

The lip balm interests me. The best ever lip gloss I have is from Guerlain. It’s the Terracotta Gloss & Shine in Amber Sun. Color is very versatile, very pigmented and has a strong staying power! i seriously love it!

For those ladies who are wondering about the eye kohl…
I’ve been using a “kajal” for two years… and let me just tell you it works better than any pencil! A kajal is especially meant for the waterline. They tend to give an intense black when you line with it and last a really LONG time. I’ve worn Kajal all day w/o it coming off.

I can’t really give any guarantee for the Guerlain one because I haven’t tested it myself. However, the one i use is from Pakistan and I could use it for a year w/o running out. You Use it just like “ART” said. 🙂 One thing about Kohls/Kajals is that sometimes they tend to smudge.. but can be easily wiped off. Sorry for the long Rant… lol.

Thanks for the info, Faiza! I love the look of the Guerlain kajal, and I would really like to try it, especially as I always color my waterline…it would be worth it. You don’t happen to have any links to that Pakistani kajal, do you? Or do you just pick it up on visits?

i no espeically south asians have been wearing kajal for years, infact my gran still does wear it. i also wear kajal aswell…but find it smudges..however i hav a way to stop dat…(well works for me), i put the kajal on and then go over it with a normal black pencil i use for my water line. seems to stay a long time.

I bought the Cashmere lipgloss in the Sultan….the perfect blood orange red to POP my green eyes….I must buy another to horde these!

I just bought a huge chunk of this collection. The only things I did not get are: the lipbalms (because they look like dark Vaseline, but apply so sheerly that one may as well put on the Vaseline. Well, I have fairly dark lips, so maybe the tint will show on someone with lighter lips) and the mineral powder (because: 1) I have too many bronzers and 2) the colours were a bit dull – let me explain: unlike the usual radiant payoff of the normal bronzers, these all seem to have a muddy undertone).
The lip glosses are fantastic. They are more of a liquid lipstick. Texture is similar to the old Dior Diorific glosses. Non-sticky.
The eyeshadows are wonderful. AND THEY STAY. The swatch on my hand had to be removed with cleanser. They have a great luminous quality about them. They actually should be permanent. Althought, there is a lot of product, so unless they are used everyday, I don’t think I’m about to run out any time soon.
The Kajal stick – well, its great. And I assume doesn’t contain any lead like some of the traditional ones. I haven’t used it yet, but it looks promising.
Hope this helps!
