If you've been following my posts this week, you'll know that I got to haul albeit a mini one at Kryolan last Saturday when in Bombay. Now the thing with these gorgeous, exclusive stores is that the moment you enter one of them, you are surrounded by colors, attractive looking products, a little snooty SAs and of course a lot of full length mirrors :P I got blinded by all this jazz as well and just went on swatching eyeshadows after eyeshadows and then lipsticks and blushes and stuff... Then I noticed in one corner, an ubiquitous looking glass beaker containing some pencil liners. I ask the SA "What are these"... She replies "Oh these are our newly launched gel liners in pencil form"... Gel Liners? In Pencil form? Yes I want them... No I don't want to swatch them... I want one of them... I ask the SA nonchalantly "How much are they for?"... She says "200 bucks for black and 180 for the other colors"...
I am speechless...
She swatches a couple of them on my hand and I want them all... But I tell myself to rationalize and be practical and well frugal... So i restrict myself to only three of them... Now do note that my hand is covered in lipstick and eye shadow swatches and now I have liner swatches on my hand as well... So I ask the SA to clean it off... She gives me a cotton ball soaked in their makeup remover and I can see the lippies and shadows disappearing at the first swipes itself... But, the liners remain intact and refuse to budge!
When I finally come to my senses, I am at the counter paying for the three liners, a black eye shadow and a refill pan of ultra foundation...
I have been wearing the Kryolan Ikonic Gel Liner Pencils all week, everyday from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm and they do not smudge, do not budge and remain true to their inherent blackness... I have ladies and gentlemen found my HG kajal :)
Image Of The Product
Price of Kryolan Ikonic Gel Liner PencilsINR 200/- for black and INR 180/- for all the other shades
1. Once set, it is smudgeproof.
2. Stays on forever even on oily lids
3. The shade is the jettest of black
4. Extremely pocket friendly
5. Doesn't cause any reactions or rashes.
6. Is waterline safe.
7. Very creamy and glides on very smoothly.
1. Availability could be an issue especially since Kryolan stores are only present in Bombay, Delhi & Chennai.
2. Since its very creamy and soft, it needs to be sharpened frequently.
Definitely! It is now my HG kajal and I am planning to buy backups of this by the dozen :)
If you like black kajals, then this is for you. If you have oily lids then this is for you. If you like smudgeproof kajals then this this is for you. In short if you wear kajal then this is definitely for you...
