Guerlain Noir Volcanique (01) Khol Me Kajal Eyeliner ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a mostly matte, medium-dark black with neutral undertones. It's slightly darker than the average black eyeshadow but not as intense as the blackest black eyeliners--see comparison swatches. It doesn't seem creamy initially, but the pencil tip glides across skin evenly and smoothly without dragging or skipping. One single pass delivered quite a bit of product, and of course, going back and forth yielded fully opaque color. It applied really well to the waterline, as well as the lash line. When worn on the water line, it lasts between six and eight hours for me (six being if my eyes are somewhat watery). On the lower lash line, it lasted eight to ten hours well and had some slight smudging after ten hours of wear.
Guerlain's newest eyeliner is ultra-pigmented to leave a deep, long-lasting impression. The precision tip and ingenious pen-shaped design allow for easy manipulation, enabling it to be used as a liner or eyeshadow. Applied as a khol solely along the inside of the eyelid, it underlines and enhances the eyes with a provocative depth. Worked as a liner in a thick line along the upper lashes, it adds modern sophistication and widens the eyes. Also works as an eyeshadow ideal for a simple smoky eye.
